Natalie

Natalie is one of my favorite models to work with. She has pretty much been around from day one with her family. She has also seen my photography skill go from just taking pictures and refining a form to making art. Making the transition from art school to business has taken time. This was our fifth session. This is a prevalent style that you will see in my gallery wraps.
As an artist, the click of the camera is just a single step in the creation of my products. It starts with talking about your final product. What are we doing? In Natalie’s case, I was practicing a new style. I had a general idea of what I wanted to do with the images. They would be artistically edited to show my clients another product of mine and a style and product I offer.
Gallery wraps are for works of art, they are not for common photos. They are expensive and built to last generations. I believe that families should collect gallery wraps for their families at specific milestones in the road of life. To me, gallery wraps are the epitome of celebrating ourselves as a family. It, far more than a common 8×10, will celebrate the passage from high school to adulthood with our senior gallery wraps. Celebrate your family with a gallery wrap that will serve as an heirloom for generations.

My gallery wraps can be traditional but my art lies in a painted contemporary style. I can do traditional, but I don’t think it lends to the gallery wrap art piece as well as my painted style. There are other products like a traditional black and white image with deep blacks on metallic black and white paper wrapped around a floated frame that stands a few inches from the wall. In my gallery wraps, I prefer bright colors and paint-like canvases with beautiful photos. If you have a dream image, come to me with it and we can figure out how to create it together.

Fine Art vs. Photography

In the world today, photography is everywhere and everyone has a camera. Local photographers have multiplied and multiplied creating a minefield of photographers, which ones are good and the ones that aren’t are difficult to find.
In today’s photography world, my style of photography stands out because it is fine art. Fine art is much different in the fact that I create photographic art printed on canvas or fine art photographs. Real photographs are also something I provide, instead of inkjet prints. I am not one to look down on other art but the medium of our art is as important as the display itself. I would say that every photographer out there is using inkjet prints, if they are making real photographs they will let you know. You can’t print fine art on an inkjet. For one, it fades after a decade if it has UV protection less if it is not protected with a coating or UV glass frame. Two, fine art is not meant to fade, ever. Great precautions are made to protect fine art. I make real photographs created using light and a chemical process. The photograph alone will last your lifetime right out of the package. Oh and it will last for at least another generation. These photographs will last for 100 years, far longer if protected further behind museum glass (which we use in our frames).
So, the primary thing you need to ask yourself is this – do you want a picture or do you want art?

Services and Prices Brochure 2010

Here is a download for my brochure for 2010. I prefer web brochures these days because I prefer a green manufacturing system. I am not going to tout that I am the greenest this or that… it is a way of life and nothing to advertise really. This web brochure is in .pdf format and if you need any assistance, email me and I can assist you.

Photo Tip | Your Prints

Prints really matter. A lot of people love printing their photos at home and I do myself sometimes, but I usually print something to hand to my sons. They love getting pictures of a bear that I photographed or a macro shot of a bee, my oldest is four and I just like handing him photographs even though they end up on the floor or in the hands of a one year old. These pictures are for that purpose. Any photograph you print on an inkjet, no matter how great they say the ink is, no matter how good your film paper is going to lose quality quicker than traditional photographs.

Traditional photographs are not printed, the photographs are created by exposing light on light sensitive paper. Make sure you get photographs not prints. Photographs will last longer because of the process. Inkjet papers can last longer through a light coating that is applied in some pro shops, especially UV coating. Most of us cannot do that. Well, that really is where the professional photographer comes in.

All those inkjet pictures you have printed over the last few years will be almost completely faded in 20 years in storage or half that on the wall in a home display. Well, over half of the local professionals use inkjet printers from the last few years. Odds are that if you have a photograph in the last few years they are digital prints to inkjets. Your pictures will not be around when your children are older, they will be faded. They might still be recognizable, maybe.

All those that have stuck with film have actual photographs, not prints. In my home, we have photographs, not prints. The entire purpose of the professional photographer is to give you photographs, make sure your photographer is getting photographs to you and not inkjet prints. If you are getting inkjet prints make sure they are coated. Even coated inkjet prints will not last as long as a photograph.

Shimaka [portrait session]

Shimaka was fun to shoot, sometimes there is a warm up time in order to shoot good portraits. There was none with her. I hope she really loves her portrait session. In my portrait sessions, I cover several locations, usually trying to get some good urban style, edgy looks and some classic portraits in nature. These images are the reason, I love shooting outside of the studio.

There are a lot of Visalia portrait photographers, so make sure you look at current work and not the best of their work over twenty years. Try to look at their blog if they have one and take a look at current work.

Shimaka’s portrait session was wonderful as you can see from the images. This wide variety of styles, poses and shots are very typical of my photo shoots.

Taryn+Nick

I had a great time photographing Taryn and Nick’s wedding with Teresa Ferguson. It was a great wedding in Visalia and was one of my last of the year, wrapping up the wedding season. As a wedding photographer, my season tends to end between September or October. This wedding was a great way to end it.

My favorite wedding photographers

There are thousands of wedding photographers out there. Few shine above the rest. A wedding photographer is not just a photographic artist. The photographers that shine above the rest can reach their subjects on an emotional level and remove the camera between them. I compiled a short list of seven wedding photographers I have followed for the last few months. All of these photographers are award winning and considered by many to be the best wedding photographers.

Wedding photographers might take a few great pictures but these photographers are able to take great photographs consistently without flaw. One thing I have always tried to do with my photography is emulate the very best. Each year, I take a look at the wedding industry and find photographers that inspore me. I once looked at local wedding photographers and as my skill increased I began looking outward, then went to art school and continued to evolve. Today, I watch the best in the industry. I have my own style but I like to incorporate several styles into my photography. I look at the industry and say what do they have that I love… then I try to incorporate that into my own photography.

Without further wait, here are the best wedding photographers:

Fashion Photographer

The beautiful Natalie

The beautiful Natalie

Over the weekend, my photography group got together to take a look at lighting. I used between 3-4 off camera strobes. Our model was the beautiful Natalie Symanski. Fashion photography is natural for me, the style and the look are part of the way I learned. I looked at fashion advertising and media when I needed inspiration for photo shoots. My wife gets a kick out of our magazine subscriptions today, she loves Maxim magazine and I love Vogue. She hates ads, I love them.

I am attracted to fashion photography like a moth to fire and I have found that it is definitely a niche of mine in the area. Fashion has a look that a lot of people can’t get down and can’t figure out. For my style of fashion photography, I move fast, I use a minimum of three strobes and I try and create dramatic shadows. I’ll shoot through objects like a plant to throw shadows across my backgrounds. I like to visualize myself as a viewer of the fashion, a critic of the situation in front of me instead of as a photographer. I try and think of a scenario that involves the camera being a participant… the camera might be a voyeur in the closet, it might be a stranger on the couch, a shoe… I try and create a scenario that puts me in a different place in a different state of mind.

I love shadows... pianos are a plus.

I love shadows... pianos are a plus.

I apply fashion photography and photojournalism with a unique twist for wedding photography. I approach a bridal preparation session like a fashion event of a major designer… looking for dress and shoe details, details in the room and exploring the area involved from a scenario point of view. I love to come into the room and think about a story I can tell from a different point of view and I love to hide my strobes around the room as I work, moving them as I move. Usually when I first walk in.. I look for a closet and start there… as a piece of clothing or a shoe or a hanger… I will move around the room imagining the motion and evolution of what is happening to the bride.

Weddings are treated as runway shows for me. The unique look of high end fashion photography applied to weddings is amazing to say the least. First, every person coming down that aisle is a story. Using long, fast lenses I am able to remain outside of the limelight and shooting the procession as if they were each their own part of a greater story. That’s what a wedding is, it’s a story. A story you only get once. As I shoot in a fashion style, I also get all the traditional shots that everyone loves to have. The combination of fashion and photojournalism in weddings is one that makes weddings look incredible. Wedding photography is not a competition, I always ask brides to find a photographer that has a portfolio they love. When a bride comes to me, she is usually looking for a fashion edge in her wedding photography. A lot of wedding photographers have the same look and a lot of brides like that same look… and they can save a little money. This isn’t about money, this is about a fusion of art and memories.
