Wedding Video

People where shocked to find out I shoot weddings, so I put together a video with samples of my shooting style I like to use when shooting a very special day. I want to use my creativity to show the true beauty of a wedding. I want to avoid the cliches that many use as a crutch for lack of creativity.

Getting close to your subject

Sometimes you have to get close to your subject. Sometimes you may not to be that close. Lucky I do not have a fear of spiders or huge monster spiders we get here in Florida.  I am told it is a Golden silk orb-weaver, I found this guy way out in the deep swamps of Central Florida, I was out in Bull Creek Wild Life area a few days ago.

Boiler Room

I was told about this very creepy basement/boiler room under the studio. Being a Florida native I have no experience with underground structures. I found this place intriguing and fet with some themes I want to explore.

New York

I have been up here a few weeks now and really enjoying myself as well expanding my knowledge of photography and print making. There so much to learn and many very subtle nuances to catch. I made prints for some incredible artist and I marveled at the images and beauty of each of them. Ken has been sharing his mountain of known on print making and photography.

I started to look a series of images I had shot of smoke and how to create a coherent series of image that told a complete story. Up in New York there much more to art than simply a pretty picture on a wall. I have been taking with other artist and photographers about more that physical object, more about the meaning and intent of the art.
