The artist sees what others only catch a glimpse of. Leonardo da Vinci
We first met this young man when we invited him to model for us at our Retreat.
Looking at him covered with tattoos from his neck down, we were surprised to learn that he was quiet and introspective. What a joy he was as our class, along with Tim, photographed him.
In our annual Black and White Mentorship Journey, we give you the tools to be a print artist so that you get the best from your lab. For the few who want to print their own work, we teach you how to be a print maker during the final half day as we print a selected image from our session created during the Retreat. It's like seeing the image appear from blank paper when we printed in the darkroom-it's MAGICAL!
From a young age, this graceful young lady took ballet lessons several times each week. It wasn't easy as her parents had to drive to the nearest facility in a bigger town which was over an hour's drive each way.
When it was time to do her portrait, they drove several hours to get here to our studio and we were honored to capture this portrait.
Dad and daughters
Finding unique ways to photograph families with older children is always a challenge. With the Relationship style portraits, we ask parents to snuggle, hug and hold their babies and toddlers close.
With teenagers, the approach needs to be different. They are finding their way in the world.
And they need space!
Considering this, we created a branch off the "Relationship tree" and we call it our Nouveau style. More casual, we create these portraits using their natural body language to tell their stories.
