PORTRAITS ON FILM – What’s the difference?
I am proud to be known as a Film Photographer. It’s my passion and what sets me apart from most photographers.
Why use film when digital is so much easier? Who said art has to be easy? And why is easy better?
IT’S ABOUT MAGIC
I shoot film because it’s a little bit dreamy, a little bit romantic, a little bit grainy, a little bit soft, a little bit magical—like a memory. It really is. It’s not completely literal, like digital.
Digital is perfectly sharp and clear, but like a CD is to a real vinyl record, it doesn’t have the same soulfulness, the warmth.
It’s the difference between a home-cooked meal and a microwave dinner. One is simply more satisfying.
Film is something you feel. When you see a portrait made on film, you may not even know why you like it, but you feel it. It’s that’s powerful. It’s emotional. It’s truth.
It’s not Photoshop tricks or Instagram filters. It’s simply truthful.
It’s the difference between portraits of movie stars in the 1960s and 1970s versus today. That difference is film!
When you want a little bit of that magic, and demand the very best for your family, schedule a genuine film portrait.
Seniors too, both the high school kind and your parents or grandparents!
As an award-winning staff photojournalist for 15 years with a major daily newspaper, I worked everyday to draw out personalities, to tell a story with a photograph. To capture emotion worthy of a feature page cover!
The best images are not made with the most expensive camera, bursting with a thousand shots “spraying and praying”. It’s not about the camera at all, but the result of a genuine connection between subject and photographer—an ease, a comfort which shows in the image. (The magic isn’t in the camera, it’s in you, captured on real film!)
I shoot in studio, or at your location. Whichever best serves you.
Because, it’s all about you and your family. For a truly special photograph that will be shared and passed down for generations, choose film.
You’ll feel the difference when the photograph—a magical, artistic image of your family—is displayed in your home. Your guests will see the difference, as it won’t be like any others.
