My friends and family kind of know I am a little obsessed with photography–wedding photography and portrait photography in particular.
One time, I was photographing a commercial photography job and the art director asked me, “So what do you do for fun?” And it was hilarious, because I really had to stop and think about it. Don’t get me wrong, I like fun. Fun is good. It could be argued that fun is actually necessary. However, I was honestly stumped because when I am photographing, it is–fun. It is what I do for fun. It is a bonus that I make money from it. Even when I am not working for a client, I am usually either photographing something, thinking of photographing something, reading or watching a video about how to photograph people/things better–I am even going to a seminar in April for five days for photography. I am a driven to provide better wedding photography in particular because I think it is so important to my clients. Does this make me look a little one dimensional? LOL.
Anyway, some really amazing Wedding Vendors and I got together to do a styled shoot that would help promote the newly renovated Queensbury Hotel in downtown Glens Falls. It is a historic building that originally opened in 1926. It is a landmark building in Glens Falls, so I was happy to be included in this little project. Plus I just liked all the vendors who participated. It was very, dare I say, fun. Below are just a sampling some of the images from that day:
That’s a wrap–what I do for fun. We all have our obsessions and little idiosyncrasies. So what do you do for fun?
