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.

Brideography Package

I am now offering a Brideography package. It covers several photo shoots and is designed to cover several months to a year while you prepare for your wedding. The Brideography is a photography story of you preparing for your wedding day. It can be purchased separate from your normal wedding photographer or you may add it on to one you already have with me or the one you are going to get.

Preparation shoot is included with brideography package 3

During the reception, you will also get a slideshow with music showing the preparation that you went through to get to your wedding. To do the Brideography, you coordinate with me before you go searching for a dress, the florist, the venue, etc… You get several sessions leading up to your wedding that tell the story of your preparation.

The Brideography comes in three packages for varying numbers of shoots and reserved days. The first package covers the search for the dress and the bridal shower. The second package adds on another on-location shoot (maybe the florist) and the bachelorette party, although you get to see the pictures before anyone else… you can blackmail your girlfriends.

The third and final Brideography package covers the search for the wedding wardrobe, I will also follow a bridesmaid group on a separate occasion (if needed). I will follow you to the florist and other vendors as planned. I will go to five different vendors with you. You will get your bridal shower covered and the bachelorette party (if you want it covered). On the day(s) leading up to your wedding, I will shoot a spa or stylist and your preparation for the wedding.

The brideography packages start at $1000 and you get a disc with your images and you get a slideshow. The length of that slideshow is based on the package you purchased.

Gallery Wrap

A gallery wrap is a great display piece. I love them. My print lab for wraps is Mpix, one of the best printing labs in the world. To make a gallery wrap, I start by taking an image and editing it to print on a canvas. The canvas is printed and then wrapped around stretcher board so you can see the image wrap around the side. As a photographer, I like to see my images displayed in different ways and one of these is on canvas as a gallery wrap. Photography is an art form and should be displayed as such.

Wedding Ceremony

webparker_23302

Wedding photographers meet many challenges when photographing a wedding. One of the hardest challenges is capturing the candid moment right before and during the ceremony. There is a reason that most wedding photographers have no ceremony images in their portfolios. I usually use two camera bodies or have an additional photographer (and sometimes two extra photographers) during arrival of guests and through the ceremony.

parker_2554The problem with photographing the ceremony is the fact that the photographer cannot be two places at once, cannot change lenses and cannot have technical issues. To answer this, I use two camera bodies with different lenses and an additional photographer. If a camera goes down I can switch to the other camera and there is always the additional photographer. Photographers only get one shot at these moments and you need to have a photographer you can count on. So, look through the portfolio and make sure you see that they cover all times of the ceremony, not just the posed formal shots afterward. These can be shot time and time again. What you want to see is proof that they can shoot and make great shots all the way though your wedding.

Depending on where your wedding is, a wedding photographer has different sets of challenges. Most catholic churches do not allow flash during a ceremony. Photographers need to have special lenses in order to compensate for this. Outdoor weddings can also challenge a photographer depending on where the sun is. Just a few things to keep in mind when looking for a photographer for your wedding. If you would like to book me for a wedding, call 559.623.7423 or email at photo@robertwheater.com.

Here are a few of our images taken in challenging situations like ones explained above. In one image, we have a wall of light behind our wedding couple and the bridal party, which is sometimes a difficult shot. No one was able to take pictures with their digital cameras except for my wife and I, with our Nikon DSLR cameras. Everyone else had white with black silhouettes. I take a creative approach to capturing your wedding images and with two, sometimes three photographers we get great shots from multiple angles and styles.

Photo Session [engagement] Charlie and Dana

First, Charlie and Dana were awesome. We had a blast up at Halfmoon Bay, north of San Francisco. The couple will be having their wedding there in a couple months. In order to create some continuity in the shots, I wanted to have the engagement session there but some ways down and near sunset to sunset.

I like to start off engagement sessions with my Lomography cameras. I hand the couple a few Lomo cameras and have them go to it, while I just watch as they loosen up really quick.

At the end, we had a really windy sunset and it lacked a lot of color. We will not have an opportunity to really take sunset shots on the wedding day because it starts in the morning. Here is one of the shots off one of the cliffs during the sunset. We did not have a good location and the car is literally parked on the freeway. But, I saw the sunset from a better angle than a few minutes earlier so I stopped the car and had them run out and grabbed a few shots.

This next shot is probably one of my favorites. It was shot beneath some trees at about chest level. The engagement session was really windy. There were very few shots where Dana’s hair was still. This was one of them, a lot of the shots Dana’s hair was whipping all over the place. Also, because of the large green field behind me in the shot, Charlie’s glasses had a green tint, I took care of most of that post-process.

Great Engagement Photo

Great Engagement Photo

This third engagement portrait was interrupted, well, we had a visitor fly in and want to take part — so I added him into the shot. A pelican flew in and posed for the camera for a bit. While by far not the best of the shots from the photo shoot, it was funny and has a story for them. It kind of chased us around while we were on the pier there. I think it wanted my 70-200 2.8 lens. I liked this shot warm, the sun was near setting — 82 Warming Filter.

We had a great time, had some dinner at the Halfmoon Bay Brewery, the music was awesome. I thought I would add one last image. This last image is probably the keeper for the guest book.
