'Best Wedding Photographer 2018' - LooksLikeFilm
Cinematic | Imaginative | Colorful
The kind of work I do within the wedding photography genre is very distinct - every image stands on its own as a thoughtful composition as if from a cinematic art house film or high-end commercial/editorial shoot. My color grading is immediately identifiable and unique - developed through years of studying color theory - uncommon today in a sea of 'presets' that other photographers purchase on the internet for they have no knowledge of how to build their own. I'm sure you've seen this when scrolling through Instagram and see a landscape of orange/browns or an overexposed pastel 'light and airy' appearance.
I am often described not as a 'wedding photographer' - but instead as an editorial/commercial photographer who shoots weddings. My compositions are often quirky, surprising, different. I always attempt to show a point of view that's uncommon and fascinating to the viewer.
If you're looking for something different - but timeless - then I'm your guy :) I confidently direct a scene, a pose, a group, the light, the shadow, all of it is built on 30 years of experience behind the lens. I'm obsessed with light and shadow and incorporate it as a character in your story. These elements create mood, depth, nuance, passion, mystery, contrast and harmony.
I draw inspiration from Stanley Kubrick, Emmanuel Lubezki (The Revenant), Conrad Hall (Road to Perdition), Gordon Willis (The Godfather), Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood) and my hero Roger Deakins (Blade Runner 2049). My still photographer heroes include Henri-Cartier Bresson, Slim Aarons, Art Streiber, Annie Leibovitz & Mark Seliger.
