ONLY IF YOU DON’T WANT BORING
So, what kind of family photography are we going to do?
I love doing fine art family portraiture with a twist. The thing is, I just hate boring photography.
So, how do I get around that? Well, by actually communicating with my clients. And really, client is a very sterile word. We take time to get to know each other and get comfortable with one another. Doing the technical things, metering the light, setting the exposure, clicking the shutter — that’s a skill to master (although you might be surprised by how many “professional photographers” don’t know these things. But how does someone create an environment, whether in-studio or on-location, where you can be you, where your family’s personality can emerge and be revealed? Well, I do it by talking; and more importantly, listening. Learning about you and your family. We may take as much time getting to know each other as it takes to do the “photography” part of the photoshoot.
Oh, and don’t forget fun. Seriously. You ought to see the outtakes.
Let’s plan your photoshoot. Let’s take the time to decide how to make this great! Let’s create art of your family. And have some fun in the process. You’ll start out my client but, hopefully, by the time you’re about 10 feet in the door, I’ll have a new collaborator, a partner, and a friend that becomes my subject for a portrait that we can share with the world.
We try to keep our online portfolio updated with some of our latest work.
Please realize what you’ll see is not just our top-of-the-line, hide-the-not-so-good stuff. For the most part, what you see is what you get. Really.
