WHAT IS INTERPERSONAL PHOTOGRAPHY
and how do I TELL YOUR STORY?
I use the camera in much the same way a writer might use a pen or a keyboard. My goal is to weave a story, a narrative, an arc that shows the very best of you. I strive to make our interactions an exploration of the things you want to show me about who you are. Wedding photography in particular is a time when "telling the story" is so much more than pushing a button.
The level of technology available today makes photography so much more accessible than it was when I started making images at 8 years old. In fact, just about anyone can get a decent image from the equipment that is available to day. The images I make of you will be more than the result of someone pushing a button. I will be as unobtrusive as possible and I want to capture images that show you enjoying yourself. In fact some of the feedback I've gotten from folks is that they didn't realize I was there after a while; but when they needed me I was easy to find.
I want to capture images of you enjoying your moments, I want the images to say something special and unique about you; not just a record of where things happened and who was there. I want capture "what did it feel like" and "how did the air smell" and "how did the cake taste" and to help everyone remember "why that joke was so funny!" I like capturing faces and expressions when I photograph, and I tend to look for those moments. I am influenced by cinema, theatre, Gordon Parks, Yervant, Dennis Reggie, Jazz, Sci-Fi, existentialism and great television. I'm looking for eyes.
I would LOVE to be your photographer.
