Among my most precious posessions, Im ashamed to say I count my iphone. Is there anything it cant do? Wanted to share Josh’s latest creation (its really ok to hate him beacause he’s so good ) While he was shooting a recent wedding he decided to shoot a little 8mm video…WITH HIS IPHONE. Check it out.
Danielle turned me on to this guy, and I have to say Im so drawn to his films. This one, called The Birdman, made me tear up. I think its because Chris took the time to tell his story, a guy that probably hasnt had many folks sit with him and want to know about his life. It really made me want to start a project like this in our area (if only I had time for another project). So often we go through our days thinking about ourselves and all we have to do, but it would really mean so much to so many, if we just took the time to ask about their life.
Two of my favorite things all rolled into one beautiful online package. You know I love an online Mag. and one of my most favorite photographers is the ridiculously talented Jose Villa. We had the opportunity to have dinner with Jose in Nashville a few years ago, since then his popularity, has continued to grow, and it was pretty darn high back then. He has since had a book published, that Im dying to get my hands on. He is all film shooter, and his work is unmistakeable. Check out his amazing cover and feature(pg 64).
I thought I would start a Monday tradition of sharing a photographer that I am inspired by, after all on Monday’s we all need a little inspiration, right!? Last week I ran across Ashley Skjaveland’s site, and was instantly drawn to it. So simple, and genuine. Click on the image to give her a visit and see what you think.
So Josh, Erika and my self were having a conversation about our tagline yesterday, “Fine Arts Weddings” & “Fine Art Portraits”. We are in the midst of updating our blog & website and to be honest I brought up that I was a little worried our clients might misunderstand what that means to us. Then… we had one of those conversations that I wished that were recorded for us to share.
What do we mean by “Fine Art?”
A huge priority with us, is that those portraits you hang in your home, will still be amazing in 20 or 30 years. That they can become heirlooms you pass down to your children. Like old family portraits. You know those that are 70-100 years old or older. They are always beautiful, classic, simple and will never go “out of style“. I am always so drawn to those. They inspire me.
We approach each sessions with the goal of capturing something real. Something timeless. Sometimes that is a sweet somber moment, sometimes that is a big belly laugh. We love images that make you feel something. We want the result of a session with us to be a selection of precious memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Images that can stand as beautiful “Art” in your home. What better to decorate your home with, than those that you love the most.
So to us “Fine Art” simply means beautiful photography that will fill your home and walls with love and memories for generations.
Deb Schwedhelm is another photographer I go to for inspiration. I love the natural feel of her work. I love the grain in her black and whites. I think her work can stand as Art and Portraiture. Check her out. Tell me what you think. I would love for you guys to leave me a few comments. I want to hear from you.
I want this one with my Sam!
