My 2017 photography journey has been long and winding. Photographing things from Lancaster, PA to Los Angeles, CA, Las Vegas, NV and Florida. This year, as some of you may know, I started out the year with my arm in a sling after a rough surgery at the end of 2016. I was working a job that was difficult on myself and my family. So, I made the decision to go full time, re-brand my business and re-focus my main photography to commercial, portrait and editorial work. I also pushed myself to pass my drone license test and learned how to create with this new photography tool that gets me off the ground and creating in another way I never thought possible. And finally, I pushed myself to hone my video skills. I must say, 2017 has been even better than I could have imagined.
I have to give a huge thanks my amazing wife for the amazing support and help with this huge decision to create my own business. My friend Marie for being there to help me and be the most amazing stylist whenever needed, Greg Orth for giving me so much knowledge and a different outlook than what I originally thought was necessary, and of course, the awesome clients and relationships I've made in this first year in the new brand I'm creating.
I've helped clients to find a visual voice, re-brand, re-style and create some amazing photos for their websites, social media, ads and other marketing materials. It's really been my passion and is driving what I see for the future in 2018!
Below you will find a few (lots, sorry) of my favorites in a few categories from this past year. Enjoy and I hope to work to create something special for you in the future!
Weddings & Engagement Photography
Let's start with what I did for years. I've cut way back on weddings, and even though I'm not doing many, I did photograph a couple this year.
I have really come to love photographing products. Creating light around them and finding a great angle to make the product look it's best, really is challenging and rewarding at the same time. Also, they don't talk back to you. ;)
Food is also one of my favorite things to photograph. The beauty, the smells, the tastes and like photographing products, they don't talk back!
Photographing people has really become and obsession for me. Finding the perfect lighting to make someone look interesting, amazing, beautiful and simply their best is such a passion for me! Reading each individuals face and finding a lighting that will work for their bone structure is just so much fun!
