This post is devoted to the people whose craft and art have inspired ours and what we have learned from each of them:
Some of these folks we’ve received in-person training, tutorials, and teaching and others have influenced us from afar with helpful tips, tricks, and interesting compositions.
Justin & Mary Marantz: no single photographer has taught us more about the craft, art, and business of photography than Justin & Mary. Justin and Mary have influenced how we see light, our use of off-camera flash, authentic posing, developing a timeless and classic style, and caring for our clients well.
Brett Butterstein: we have been following Brett Butterstein for years. We have learned a lot from his really interesting compositions and use of vibrant colors and B&W.
Jeremy Cowart: there is scarcely a more interesting person in photography than Jeremy Cowart. He is a serial entrepreneur who wears the wide variety of hats of photographer, app developer, humanitarian, and artist. We have learned a good from afar about being kind, caring about meaning in your art, and trying to love people well.
Jeremy Kester: empathetic would be the best word to describe Jeremy Kester. He is a kind soul who really cares that we tell people’s stories. We have learned how to be authentic storytellers (and not just photographers) from Jeremy.
