In my world (which is admittedly pretty small), it is well known that I typically photograph young folks.
I was working at an event last weekend, and had the pleasure of running into this gentleman for the second year in a row, same event. Now, I'm prepared to admit that don't recall his name (I'm so sorry, mystery fella), and I'd like to to share that I have a great respect for him - he was one of the auctioneers for a charity auction. They were amazing to watch - and I'm pleased to have captured this moment before he went to work - raising money for a wonderful non-profit organization.
I'm sort of a purist when it comes to developing my images... I don't do a ton of post processing, nor do I spend a lot of time fiddling around with different looks. I like my images clean, colorful and relying on the moment captured for any WOW factor.
After our day at Detroit lake with good friends - I threw all of that out the window, and am in love with this image. The different personalities, the colors, the time of day - and the story. Maybe you need to know all of these knuckleheads to appreciate the image fully - but I don't think so. I think it touches on a few universal elements we can all appreciate. What do you think?
I had such a great time with this family out in Sunriver last week. They were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary with a family reunion - and were lucky enough to be enjoying some of the first fine weather of the summer.
Well, that is of course until this evening, which proved a bit chilly. But, we persevered and came through with some fantastic family memories - particularly thanks to my lovely assistant, fellow photographer Tambi Lane, who was quite the charmer that evening!
I sure hope this is the picture of MY family 37 years from now!
