Once Upon a Time ...
I used to photograph weddings. I admit. It wasn't what I had planned in my wants as a photographer. In fact, I didn't want to photograph people at all. I loved photographing nature , wildlife and still life ( mainly setting up cool scenes with toys back in the 90's ) . Although I did document the BMX life around me ... photographing people was not my thing. Still , looking back I heavily documented the life around me. Always had my camera with me .
Does this mean that quite possibly , deep down inside , I liked photographing people? Capturing moments in time? Well, yes. Yes indeed! It wasn't until I had to complete a few projects in photo school that I realized I enjoyed making portraits. Soon after ( while I was working in a photo lab ) I was recruited by a local photographer ( Curt Littlecot ) who only processed and printed proofs in our photo lab. I loved his photographic style and it wasn't the boring wedding photography style I was used to seeing back then.
I learned plenty from him and later on I put to practice what was learned on my own wedding assignments. Currently my focus is on editorial portraits / headshots and music photography. Still , every once in a while I will photograph someones special day.
