Okay… about me. Here goes:
I’ve been working as a photographer for almost 15 years… and in the photography field for even longer. Having been around before the digital-photography boom, I’ve learned the ‘old-school’ techniques of the photo business – but I’m decidedly not an ‘old-school’ studio photographer. I Prefer natural light and exterior settings to the studio and artificial lighting any day. I try to work in a photo-journalistic approach… what you see is what you get. Capture the moments – but don’t try to ‘make’ something more of it in post-processing and photoshop. All this over-photoshopped stuff that people call “photography” nowadays drives me flippin’ nuts.
In 1998, I moved to Las Vegas, where I worked in various wedding chapels photographing hundreds of weddings. When I moved back to Central Ohio in 2003, I continued working as a wedding photographer for a number of photo studios around the Columbus area.
CandidKama was launched in 2004 and in 2005, I married Marty. Together we now work as a wife-and-husband team during most weddings. Marty likes to say ‘wife-and-husband’ because he says I am definitely the main shooter… which I am. 😉
I love to travel and I love having a job that helps helps me do that. Marty grew up near Granville, and we finally moved back out there in an 1850’s farmhouse. Its great living in the county. I hope that in the coming years, I will continue to build sets and locations around our property for photo shoots – its an ideal spot for it!
But enough of this… if you really want to get to know me, like me on facebook – or set up a consultation or a photo session! Hope to meet you soon!
