Variety in assignments is very important to me. I love shooting anything from models playing the slots in casinos for gaming clients to doctors at hospitals for healthcare annual reports to sports for colleges and wire services. I’ve always shied away from wedding and senior portrait photography. Earlier this summer one of my best friends asked me if I wanted to take his daughters senior portraits. The last time I shot Emily’s portraits she was about 4 or 5, I had just started my freelance photography business in Green Bay and I took the photos in black and white with a film camera. Times, people and technology have changed in those fourteen years. I really enjoyed being a senior portrait photographer for a day. It’s tough not to get great senior portraits when you have the amazing backgrounds of Door County and a very visually friendly and cooperative subject like Emily.
Who knows…maybe in the near future, I’ll start looking for senior portrait and wedding work instead of shying away from it.
Thanks for looking and let me know what you think.
