“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
People often tell me my imagery looks like a painting. It always makes me so happy because that is exactly what I am going for! Art and story-telling through photographic imagery turn my camera into a very large (and expensive) paintbrush! Just like a painting, it does take time.
First, I get to know the subject so that their soul comes through, like a story in a single image.
Then, I set up the lighting and I shoot with camera and lighting settings precisely how I want them in order to accomplish my goals for the image once I get it onto my canvas- Photoshop.
It's taken a lot of training and practice to accomplish the look and feel that I want to create. I have many late nights working on each and every image in detail, giving each image the time and love it needs to become a story all on its own.
“Art is too important not to share.”
― Romero Britton
Fine art is a labor of love. The images are priceless, but people usually do have a budget! I want to provide them with affordable art of the ones they love so they can experience it for themselves. So it almost never ends up in my favor, time-wise, but it always ends up in my favor by how much people love their images! Seeing them love their very unique images is also priceless!
If you want to know more about how I create these images, either as a photographer or a client, please email me anytime.
