The last time I had my photo taken from someone other than my wife or a candid from a friend was when I married my beautiful wife 5 years ago. The hardest thing being a photographer is finding and trusting another photographer to take your photo. That was an easy task for us because we just love Kathy Wolfe’s work and we knew she would do an amazing job.
We went to her studio for a mini session and had more fun than we imagined. We are used to being on the other side of the camera and it was definitely a little bit weird for me to not be the taking the photos. It was relaxing and nice to know I was getting great photos so it did make it a lot easier to be in front of the camera instead of behind. Now I know how my clients feel when they come to me for photos.
Part of being a good photographer is recognizing good photography that is not your own. I know all photographers want to stand up in front of the crowd and brag how great they are. Today I am going to stand up and brag how great Kathy was. I don’t mind promoting another local photographer friend of mine because there is more than enough work to go around. Helping other photographers out is what this business is all about if you want to succeed.
Kathy, we thank you so much for letting us come in and get some family photos. There are a few we are going to hang in our house. Yes,I said it. I am hanging a photo from another photographer We look forward to working with you again sometime.
Here is one photo of my son and I have a good time. I think my wife might have just tickle attacked him, notice the face her has Thanks to Kathy for letting me edit some of the photos; I tried out some new editing techniques with simulating some old film types. This is one of my favorite films from back in the day. Ilford HP5 B&W
