Street Life Documentary Photography

Back when I was working as a newspaper photographer, I would often be sent out to get a “weather photo”, some pictorial photograph or a graphic photo to use on the front page for the weather report.   They were called roamers, because you roamed around looking for interesting people doing interesting things outside of your regular assignments.

Street photography has a long history from the 1930s on by the likes of famous names like Henri Cartier-Bresson, Garry Winogrand, Mary Ellen Mark, and Elliott Erwitt, to name a few.  They were searching for stories of real life in the street.  That’s what these photographs are, stories from the streets made between commercial assignments in cities throughout the U.S.

Photographing in various cities gives me the opportunity to seek out stories and be at the ready to document it at a moment’s notice–and that reflex carries forth to my commercial work, especially event coverage and documentary editorial work.

Portraits

Personalities on camera, portraits are truly my love. From the time I started as a photojournalist, I’ve cherished the opportunity to create a storytelling image of a person, from a CEO to a rising star.  To catch that spark, that one image that sings among the others.

I often bring out the film cameras, like a vintage Hasselblad or even a 4×5 large format camera, which creates a totally different look from digital, and often changes how the subject interacts with me, because of the care I take to make their portrait just right.

Product/Food/Drink

Product photography is an art in and of itself.  Whether for a catalog or a promotional brochure, the product must look exactly as the art director sees it.  That’s where just the right amount of light comes in and creates the image.

Food photography has one simple rule: it has to look so good to eat, you find yourself reaching for something like it, now that the image has planted the idea and your mouth is watering.  From a glistening ham to a bowl of hearty tomato soup, to sweet breads and extra creamy ice cream, food needs a special touch to get it just right.
