Sharing Is Caring

As a photographer not a week goes by without friends, family and/or clients asking, ‘Can you photograph my kids, my family, my dog, so and so’s wedding?’, etc. Lol! I often want to say, ‘Yes!’, but I can’t! I am one person focusing on commercial photography and raising children. It seems my hours and minutes are always accounted for. Yet, when I do this kind of work, I love it!  These photos were part of an auction for my girls school. A worthy cause. The Wallace family purchased my photo package, an afternoon with me and a photo book. Here are some of my favorite pages. Feels good to be reminded of why I am a photographer. To connect, share, and hopefully, inspire others to look within and to experience life authentically. LOVE THY NEIGHBOR.

Sold My Car Yesterday….

I was amazed at the emotional connection and feelings of love, joy and deep gratitude I felt as I walked away from it. Thoughts of drives to and from with my girls knowing they were growing and different each time they got in and out. All the photo shoots with my car loaded with gear, allowing me to be creative and earn a living. Often standing on top of it as a platform for me and my tripod. I thought of many good times jamming to loud music with family, friends and especially my girls. The lectures. The laughter. Holding hands as we drove from one event to another. And the many times the Wonder Woman stickers the girls put on my sun visor greeted me with a needed reminder of who we are. All these feelings of love, joy and gratitude I am clearly projecting on my car from within my heart and soul. Lol! #truelove projected onto the world…Thank you my #hondaodyssey, my #loyalfaithfulfriend. You’ve been #TRUE.

It’s A Dirty Job, But…..

Industrial photography is a specialized field of photography which makes it possible for businesses to communicate with customers and other businesses showcasing their industrial processes, machines, and techniques. I thrive in these environments. Here is where I can indulge my curiosity and wonder about how things are made and where they come from. An understanding of how these products are marketed and used in daily life and in business to business consumption helps a lot. Photographing people at work, industrial machinery, locations and manufacturing processes requires a skilled photographer with years of experience. I have traveled to remote industrial facilities in Surinam, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico for companies like Alcoa, Phelps Dodge and Johnson & Johnson. I create images and time-lapse videos of processes, amazing aerial photography and videos for shareholders and corporate communications.

 

 

Being In The Right Place At The Right Time

Sometimes we plan to be in the right place at the right time. Like just after the sun rises and the landscape is suddenly flooded with clear golden light. That’s when I did these photos for Portofino Island Resort. No rain, lots of great light, the beauty of the location and the company of a great creative team made this film and still shoot a complete success. This could have been different though. Sometimes we find ourselves somewhere and the light (or our plans) are not optimal. That’s a good time to remember that the light is ALWAYS there. It may require a shift in thinking or a different approach or even another visit. For me it’s always worth the investment to be in the right place at the right time… Magic happens in the early morning and late afternoon. It’s the only way to make beautiful images. : )
