Take a look at my Wedding LookBook

     This is my Wedding LookBook that I have created this past week for promoting myself as a wedding photographer. It is only six pages but gives couples an idea of my style of photography and my contact information and website if anyone would like to investigate further.

     Represented here are an engagement shoot of one couple and a wedding of another. I am not confined to one style of shooting and can shoot group portraits as most weddings would wish for.

Yes, I Do Weddings.

         Yes I do shoot weddings. What makes shooting weddings so difficult is telling the Bride and Groom's story in a interesting way. Any photographer who can shoot a correct exposure can take cliche wedding shots all day long. But finding those unique moments that makes the Bride and Groom's day special and their's alone is what makes a good wedding photogpher.

         I am expensive. Yes I am worth it. What I shoot will be different because I am also a commercial and editorial photographer. It will not look like every other wedding photographer's work out there.

Today I am just showing an image I took from my Elmo shoot for the photo illustration module. This was in the studio with a black background and two pro-photo strobes on my right and left. This is actually incense smoke I was capturing as stock to put together with Elmo and a cigarette. Zooming in on my shots in lightroom I quickly became transfixed by the beauty of the liquid light created by the smoke and strobes. I have quite a few different shots of the smoke, so I can't pick my favorite one right now. It is the type of photo that I can just sit, and get lost in.

This is Micheal a model that I was shooting near the Potomac river in Georgetown, Washington D.C. for my Stock Photography module at CDIABU. Currently I am a photography student at the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University. In the Stock Photo module this week one of the keywords that I needed to shoot for was "freedom". My first thought was flying or someone jumping in the air. If I had a trampoline it would have been perfect. Instead, with the help of my classmates I set up a shoot in the park off K St. and had the model jumping off a bench. It was difficult to stop motion with the portable lighting kit that we brought out with us because of the ambient light of the sun and the slow sync speed of 1/250 sec that I can get from my D700. Any faster and I would not be able to capture the light from the strobe. In post, photomatix helped to bring out the detail and sharpen up Micheal flying through the air.
