Fine Art Photography Friday – Amusement Park

Amusement Park by San Antonio Fine Art Wedding Photographers Red Photo

It is Friday and that means Fine Art Photography Friday, the one day of the week that I post one of my fine art photographs and tell you the story behind it.  Many readers have given me positive feedback and they like seeing my fine art work each Friday.

Being a San Antonio Fine Art Wedding Photographer I get to photograph many weddings each year, but I also work on fine art photography projects, like my amusement parts project.  I have been working on the amusement parks project now for over ten years and I have been to amusement parks all over the world.  You can see more images from this decade long project at http://redphotophotography.com/fine-art-friday-amusement-park-san-antonio-wedding-photographer-red-photo/, and http://redphotophotography.com/fine-art-photography-friday-iowa-san-antonio-wedding-photographer-red-photo/

The image above is from Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, TX.  I remember it was a very hot day, like it always is in the Dallas area during the summer.  The project was to link images back to older times by giving them a vintage look and feel.  I photographed the beginning of the project with toy cameras, like a Diana and a Holga.  These are cheap plastic cameras that take medium format film.  I eventually switched over to using a digital SLR camera and then post processing the images to make them look like the images that came from the toy cameras.  The project is all in black and white and the images are warm toned.  I began this project so long ago that the original images were actually black and white prints that I made in an old style chemical darkroom.  Film and the darkroom are long gone, but I still miss the process and the creative time.  I don’t miss the hours upon hours of time that I had to spend processing film.

Make sure to look back at the blog next Friday for another fine art piece.

San Cristobal by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

Fine Art Photography Friday is here again and this week I have another fine art image from my series in Mexico.  As many of my readers know, I am a San Antonio based wedding photographer but I love both documentary photography and fine art photography.  Every chance that I get away from my wedding photography business I use to take either documentary photography or fine art photography images.  In fact, I combine both of these in my fine art documentary wedding photography images. That is one of the reasons why I decided to become a wedding photographer.

The image above is from my trip to Mexico where I spent time in the little town of San Cristobal de Las Casas and then spent a week living with a local family out in the jungles of Chiapas.  You can read more about this adventure in my post, “Fine Art Photography Friday – Mexico.”  I originally went to San Cristobal to take a documentary photography workshop with Craig “Cisco” Dietz.  Craig was a photographer and artist in Los Angeles who moved to San Cristobal about 20 years ago.  Craig runs a photography workshop called Aper Tours.  He is a great teacher and I highly recommend studying any type of photography with him.  His workshops at the time that I traveled to Mexico were small, with 3 people maximum.  The week that I was there I was the only one so I had a one-on-one experience and was able to stay with him and his wife in their house.  That week was more like hanging out with an old friend then a workshop.  Craig and I traveled around the countryside, we photographed some projects together, and then I was out on my own photographing most of the time.

I was shooting medium format black and white film using a pair of Mamiya 645 cameras.  There may seem like an odd choice for a documentary photographer, but they are pretty compact cameras and I wanted to have a larger negative to give me better quality prints.  I processed all of the black and white film while I was at Craig’s home/studio in his nice darkroom, and made some contact sheets and prints.  I liked going the nostalgic route of shooting film instead of digital.  It just seemed to fit the older lifestyle of the places that I was exploring.

For the image above I went out right around sunrise to roam the streets and to look for interesting subjects for images.  This is what is known as reportage style.  One of my favorite reportage photographers is Andre Kertesz.  You should definitely check out his work.  He has been a great influence on me and my photography.  As I was wandering the streets I noticed this beautiful old stucco wall.  The wall itself was interesting and I took several images of it, but I felt that the photographs were missing something.  That was a human element.  So following the lead of Henri Cartier-Bresson, I waited for something or someone interesting to come into my frame.  I just sat down on the curb across the street from the wall and waited.  After about 15 minutes I saw a man pushing a cleaning cart down the street who was heading into my frame.  I just waited until the precise moment and created the image above.  Patience will always pay off, so be patient.

Rebecca and Milton’s Engagement Photography Session

Engagement Photography Session by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

I had a great engagement photography session with Rebecca and Milton recently.  As a San Antonio wedding photographer I always encourage all of my clients to have either an engagement portrait session or bridal portrait session.  It is best when they have both.  Not only does this create some great images that are different than the regular fine art wedding photography images that I create, but I think that it is important to have these portrait sessions for a few reasons.  Many of the couples that I work with have never had professional photography before and they do not know what to do in front of the camera.  The portrait session gives them time to get used to being photographed.  It also gives me a chance to spend some time with the couple.  I especially like an engagement session because I get a chance to work with both the bride and groom and to see how they react to being photographed.  My style of very much documentary and I do not like to pose people.  I may start them out in a little bit of a pose, but then I tell them to relax into a more natural look.  I refer to this as posed, but unposed.  The natural look is what I am after.  I find that it also makes them feel and look more comfortable in their image.  Bridal portraits have to be a bit more posed because of the dress.  I always find these sessions to be more formal.  Most of them occur indoors but I have taken some beautiful bridal portraits outdoors.  You can see some great images from Rebecca’s bridal portrait session at Rice University here.  But I still encourage the bride to be a bit relaxed in her pose.

Rebecca and Milton chose Jesse Jones Park for their session because they wanted a wooded surrounding.  They also wanted to create some images on a small beach area in the park.  I had never been to that park before but luckily they were very familiar with it.  The park is fairly large and we walked a lot.  Usually I am the one leading people all over an area to find great locations and to produce a variety of images.  But this time they were the ones dragging me all over the park.  We must have walked for at least 3 miles and I was carrying all of this camera gear.  But the resulting images were worth it.  There was great variety to them from an open field to the trees and the beach.  They are a great couple.  We all had a wonderful time.  I am looking forward to photographing their wedding.

Fine Art Photography Friday – Church by San Antonio Wedding Photograph Red Photo

San Antonio wedding photographer, wedding photographer San Antonio, San Antonio photojournalism wedding photographer, Texas wedding photography, Fine Art Wedding Photographer San Antonio, Wedding Photography San Antonio

Third Baptist Church, San Francisco by Fine Art Wedding Photographer Red Photo

This Friday, for Fine Art Photography Friday, it is time to go to church.  And not just any church, but the Third Baptist Church of San Francisco.  Now you may be wondering how a San Antonio wedding photographer ends up in a baptist church in San Francisco.  Good question.  You know if you have been reading my other blog posts that I like to travel a great deal and take documentary photographs.  Many of my documentary photography projects are long term and take me all over the world.  But for this image, in the Third Baptist Church in San Francisco, I was actually living in the city at the time.  I went to graduate school at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where I received my Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Photography.  After I graduated I went on to teach at The Academy of Art for 2 1/2 years.  So I have many images from San Francisco.  It is a great city, one of the best cities in the world.  There is so much to see and do and so much to photograph.  I love all of the different cultures and flavors of the city.

While I was in graduate school, one of my friends, Lee, belonged to this church.  I told her how I was very interested in photographing all things related to religion and how people weave religion into their life.  I was drawn to a pastiest church because of the music and the intensity of the services.  I was also drawn to the fact that the women in the congregation wear there great hats on Sundays.  It was an amazing experience to be in such an old and respected church to to see all of the wonderful people of the congregation joined in prayer and song.  I just so happened to be there on the day that Jess Jackson was visiting as part of his Rainbow Push Coalition.  This was an extra added bonus because my friend Lee did not tell me that Rev. Jackson was going to be there.  So I also had the opportunity to meet and to photograph him.

The image of the church members represents a very pure form of documentary photography.  The image is so yellow because the sun light was streaming through the old stained glass windows.  At first I was not happy with the oddly colored light, but then I realized that it really gave the image that fine art touch the I like to mix into my documentary work.  This is part of my fine art documentary photography look and what I apply for my weddings.  I have talked about being a fine art wedding photographer in previous posts.  You can read more about this here.

5 Tips for Hiring a Wedding Caterer from San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

San Antonio wedding photographer, wedding photographer San Antonio, San Antonio photojournalism wedding photographer, Texas wedding photography, Fine Art Wedding Photographer San Antonio

Wedding food by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

As a San Antonio wedding photographer I interact with many other types of wedding vendors.  Along the way I have seen how a wedding is a group effort and like any team it is important to have the right individuals on that team.  Many people think that wedding photographers are isolated from the rest of the wedding, but I make every effort to constantly meet other wedding vendors and to learn more and more about the wedding process.  Today I offer you my 5 tips for hiring a wedding caterer.

San Antonio wedding photographer, wedding photographer San Antonio, San Antonio photojournalism wedding photographer, Texas wedding photography, Fine Art Wedding Photographer San Antonio

Wedding food by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

1.  Get recommendations and referrals

Like anything else in life you should ask other people who have had experience with caterers for recommendations.  If you have recently been to a wedding and you like the food and the service find out who catered the event.  Remember that caterers also provide service at other events, like office parties and organizational events.  If you enjoyed the food and the service at an event, find out who provided the catering.  Once you have some referrals or recommendations you should make sure to check them out.  Don’t just go on someone else’s word.  Your friend may have just been to a wedding and loved the food but that does not mean that you should  just blindly take their advice.  Check it out for yourself.

2.  Use a wedding planner

In a recent post I talk about the importance of hiring a wedding planner.  You can read that post here.  One of the things that I pointed out is that a wedding planner has connections and experience. With some information on your likes and budget they can help to steer you to a good caterer.  They have worked with many wedding vendors and you should rely on their experience and knowledge.  Many planners have a preferred vendors list that has all types of wedding vendors on it.

3.  Check with your venue

Just like the wedding planners your venue will have a preferred vendors list of the people who they have successfully worked with in the past.  This list should be short.  I am always a bit put off by long lists as it seems like anyone can get on it.  Short lists mean that those vendors have to maintain very high standards.  When venues are looking to put people on their approved vendor list they are very careful that these vendors match the price point and service level of their typical customers.  As a San Antonio wedding photographer I have to work very hard to put myself on the preferred vendor lists of the best wedding venues, but it is worth it in the end.

4.  Taste the food

This might seem obvious but you need to taste all of the food from a caterer before making any decisions.  I know couples who thought that they wanted a certain type of food but discovered that they liked another type of food better.  One couple wanted a beef dish, because they thought that it would be more elegant, but preferred the taste of the chicken dish.  Another  couple I know went all vegetarian at their wedding because they liked the vegetarian foods better.  Do not assume anything, taste everything.

5.  Use a professional certified caterer

I highly recommend that you use only professional, certified caterers.  They should belong to a national organization like NACE (National Association for Catering and Events) or ISES (International Special Events Society).  I am a member of both to help foster the wedding team mentality.  After you have some recommendations you can go to these organizational websites to see if your perspective caterer is listed as a member.  You could also start with these organizations and then go through the rest of the process.

Taking a multi-pronged approach to hiring your wedding caterer is what is going to get you the best results.  It may be a little bit of work but in the end  you will have a great wedding reception and your hard work will pay off.

I will be providing 5 more tips in a future post so watch for it.

Fine Art Photography Friday – China by San Antonio Wedding Photographer Red Photo

San Antonio wedding photographer, wedding photographer San Antonio, San Antonio photojournalism wedding photographer, Texas wedding photography, Fine Art Wedding Photographer San Antonio

Beijing Street Photography by San Antonio Fine Art Wedding Photographer Red Photo

Once again it is Friday and time for the Fine Art Friday photograph of the week.  I have been immersed in the business of being a wedding photographer in San Antonio all week, so I always look forward to Fridays when I can share another side of my work.  I never completely leave my fine art style behind as I always tell people that I am a fine art wedding photographer when they ask.  Today’s photograph is from a trip to China that I took a few years ago.  It was actually a Travel and Documentary Photography class that I taught at The Art Institute of Houston.   The class was an opportunity for 27 students from The Art Institutes around the country to travel to China for 2 weeks and learn Documentary Photography out in the real world.  The trip took us to Bejing, Xian, and Shanghai.  Although it was a lot of flying it was great to see these three ancient cities.  If you are going to sit on a plane for 17 hours you might as well get the most out of it,  We had a guide in China and many planned activities, but mixed into that the students and I had time to photograph in the streets of the three cities and some old neighborhoods.  We also had a chance to travel out to the countryside a few times to some very small villages.  Many of the people in these villages have probably never seen any foreigners before.  And even though we did not speak the language the people were always friendly.  They invited us into their homes, and offered us tea and food.  When you are wandering around in a small village you feel like an invader at first, but then the people there get used to you and that great connection happens.  You begin to realize that people are the same everywhere and a little patience and kindness goes a long way.

The image above is an example of street photography from Beijing.  I was so busy teaching the students all day and critiquing images at night that I did not get too many chances to photograph on my own.  So I would go out early in the mornings, just after sunrise, and walk around the streets photographing.  It is something that I had to do.  I really enjoy the Reportage style of photography in the spirit of Henri Cartier-Bresson and Andre Kertesz.  In Reportage style you literally walk around the streets looking for interesting things to photograph.  It takes time and patience, but for me it is like a scavenger hunt and you get excited when you find images.  I have always been very curious so that is why I have been attracted to documentary photography.  Not photographing all of these great scenes in an exotic, ancient land like China would drive me crazy.  There were several days that I did photograph alongside the students as part of demonstrations on how to approach people and slowly gain their trust.  This class trip was an amazing experience for me and all of my students.  I hope to do more of these in the future.

Fine Art Photography Friday – Rodeo by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

Fine Art Photography by San Antonio Wedding Photographer Red Photo

Well here it is again, another Fine Art Photography Friday.  The weeks just seem to by flying by.  I can’t believe that it is September already.  For those of you who are new to my blog, welcome.  I should tell you a little bit about me.   I am a San Antonio wedding photographer who specializes in documentary and photojournalism style fine art wedding photography. You can read more about my fine art wedding photography style here.  I prefer a very hands off approach when I am photographing weddings, bridal portraits, and engagement portraits.  Once  a week I have promised to post some of my fine art photography work.

The image for today comes from a series that I made on the Texas Tech University Rodeo team.  I had photographed some rodeos in the past.  One that I really enjoyed was a small ranch rodeo in central California.  I will show and talk about those images in another post.  That was really my first experience photographing a rodeo as an event.  It was great because I contacted the organization that was holding the event and was granted full access for the weekend.  But rather then just photograph the rodeo as a regular event I decided that I wanted to show it in more of a fine art way.  I wanted to convey how the event felt so I incorporated a great deal of motion and blur into my images.  This is part of my nostalgic, romantic style of photography.  This style runs through all of my work including my fine art, documentary, and wedding photography.  It has many elements of Pictorialism.

For the image above I contacted the head of the Rodeo Team at Texas Tech and was given access to go and photograph a practice session.  Sometimes the practice sessions are better to photograph than the real events because you can get closer to the action and pretty much go anywhere, as long as it is safe.  For this image the team was practicing roping calves.  I was able to actually stand inside the pen where the action was taking place, as long as I stayed out of the way.  That was not too hard for me to do because when a couple of large horses are running around at a quick pace you are inclined to stay away from them.  There was loads of dirt and dust which made it challenging for my camera, but the debris in the air can make for some great smoke effects when the sun shines through it.  I have several more images from this series that I will post at a later date. Have a great Friday y’all.

Groom Portraits by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

Wedding photographers San Antonio, San Antonio wedding photographers, Austin wedding photographers, San Antonio photojournalism wedding photographers

Groom portrait by San Antonio Wedding Photographers Red Photo

Being a wedding photographer in San Antonio I have the opportunity to photograph many weddings, bridal portrait sessions, and engagement portrait sessions. All of these weddings are unique experiences for me. I photograph in a fine art photojournalistic style with very few posed images. I really enjoy the challenging of capturing great emotional moments to preserve them for my clients. Many times at a wedding, since I am the primary photographer, I will spend most of time with the bride as she is preparing for the day. This is a strategy employed by many photographers and I think that is why you see so many great bride preparation photographs and brides in their wedding dress photographers. I always like to make sure that I also take portraits of the groom. When I am working with a second photographer, and that is usually the case, they are mostly responsible for hanging out with the groom and taking images of him and the groomsmen. But even when I am working with a second photographer I will take some time out to work with and photograph the groom.

I always take a groom portrait. Looking back over my wedding photography for the past years I realized that very often my groom portraits were taken in a strictly unposed, documentary style. I really like the purity of these images. I have also found that even though I am one of the premiere San Antonio wedding photographers, grooms, and guys in general, usually do not like to have their photographs taken. To help put them at ease, and to make the process quick and easy, I have gone to using a pure photojournalistic wedding photography style for the groom’s portraits. I often will convert these images to black and white to enhance that journalistic, documentary look. There are a few occasions where I will photograph grooms in more of an editorial photography style, where I move them and pose them a little, but even then I like to give them a few moments to just go back to being themselves.

I have gathered this collection of groom portraits to honor the often forgotten guys at the wedding. The documentary photographer in me seems draw to the challenge of photographing a scene without interfering and getting the photograph quickly and in a non-invasive way.

Janna and Alfonso’s Houston Wedding by San Antonio Wedding Photographer Red Photo

Janna and Alfonso’s Houston wedding

It was wonderful to work with Janna and Alfonso recently on their Houston wedding.  The preparations began at the beautiful and historic Magnolia Hotel in Downtown Houston.  Photographing the bride and the groom preparing for a wedding is one of my favorite parts of the day.  I love the excitement in the air.  It creates great moments that are best captured using my photojournalistic wedding style.  I think that using a documentary style to photographs weddings is the best way to go. Reactions are very natural and you can really get great, honest photographs that record those special moments and preserve them.  The wedding ceremony was at the St. Anne Catholic Church in Houston.  This is a grand style church with magnificent architecture.  The couple had their wedding reception in an intimate setting at the BRC GastroPub.  This small venue gave people a real change to socialize and to congratulate the newlywed couple.  There was some surprise entertainment at the reception by a full Mariachi band.  There was lots of great food and everyone had fun.  Sometimes, I really prefer these smaller wedding groups to the larger ones.  With a smaller group it gives me time to really get to know the bride and groom and their families.
