Ok, so I was not successful in creating a cleaver tongue twister in my title, but please read on despite my lack of originality!
My partner and I have a collection of works (mainly architecture and nature scenes) that we actually have displayed around our home studio. As we often photograph people we often get asked if we took all these art shots. It should not be surprising that people think of you as only being good a one thing. For instance at times our wedding couples don’t think of reusing us for photographs once they start having children, not because they didn’t like our work, but simply because it doesn’t cross their minds. A photographer can at times get pigeonholed into a category. When my partner and I started off in photography I actually specialized in product/commercial photography and he specialized in families, weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs. As time went on our roles evolved and merged. We now both specialize in weddings and families, and I now favour photographing maternity, babies and children. I still enjoy the occasional product shoot, but I have grown and so have my interests and talents, as have my partners. Our fine art imagery is another area that we like to explore and the beauty between my partner and I is that we both have a completely different eye. People who know us very well can often decipher who photographed which image. Photography is one of the most versatile forms of art. It’s all in how you see things, which is strictly unique to the artist and the best thing of all is when someone else can appreciate what you saw!
Below is some of our works. I will be blogging occasionally adding more. Everything you see is available for sale. Simply contact us or check out our online store at Etsy (our pen name is RAWart Photography).
