Virginia Beach portrait and lifestyle photographer specializing in comfortable portraits and candids
A four letter word that has been buzzing around our industry for years now. My journey into the photography world began with film, like a lot of people. And when I went looking for a photography school, I wanted one with film classes. I dreamed of Brooks Institute of Photography. And although I landed at an all digital school, my love for the beautiful quality and texture of a film image, not to mention the amazing dynamic range, has not faded.
It’s not what you think. I am not going to shoot film at weddings. I’m not going to slowly make the switch. My love for simplicity and efficiency is valued over the desire to shoot film professionally. That may make me less of an “artist” and I’m ok with that. But I still love it. So…
As you may know, I’m in Hawaii right now. And guess what I brought with me. An old 35mm. A few rolls of film. [And of course my X100.] I’m excited to see what I get. Whether it’s a roll of crazy images as a result of my rolling the film incorrectly, or some beautiful images, I’m excited for something different. Something non-wedding related. Just a few of my loves. Film. Family. Coastal Scenes. Simplicity.
