Another Fine Art Photography Friday is upon us and this San Antonio wedding photographer is ready to get his fine art side on. I always tell people that I am a fine art wedding photographer and not just a wedding photographer or photojournalism wedding photographer. They always ask me what does that mean. Well I have been a fine art photographer for 15 years now and I have had my work in over 100 group and individual shows throughout the United States and in other parts of the world. I really love fine art and I see no reason why I cannot combine this with my wedding photography. The digital age has brought about many changes and it has changed the world of wedding photography greatly. I think that digital technologies and the internet have contributed greatly to the magazine, editorial look of modern wedding photography. It has also opened up the style from the more posed images of the past to more photojournalistic style photographs. So I have combined my love of fine art with my love of documentary photography an created by own style of wedding photography.
The image above is from my amusement park project. I worked on this project for about 10 years as I travelled to amusement parks all over the US and the world. You can see more images from this project and read about them in my posts on Paris, and Disneyland. This image is from the Iowa State Fair. The fair is an enormous event and even I had trouble trying to cover all aspects of it. There is a combination of amusements along with fair food and livestock shows and competitions. There was so much to see that I really could not cover it all by myself in the week that I was there. This image is more in the style of street photography. This genre features people in public places and is taken in a non-invasive documentary style. You can see more of my street photography style in my post on China. Some of most favorite practitioners of this style are Eugene Atget, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, and Andre Kertesz. These photographers also combined documentary and fine art photography similar to what I am doing with my wedding photography in San Antonio. I have been inspired by all of them and more.
