Photography tells a story

For my entire life, I’ve found myself presented with opportunities that revolved around photography. I never intended to be a professional photographer. I just wanted to take random photos and see some cool things.

I spent my teenage years dabbling with a Nikon film camera, shooting black and white photos of lakes and the occasional wildlife. During a brief stint working for the California DMV, I found myself at several events taking photos for internal usage. That was the first time I was taking photos while on the clock, despite not being my job at all.

I eventually moved onto running a liquidation business, which seemed to do well with a prolific amount of photo updates on social media. I was taking several hundred photos per week, bought some random gear, and still had no idea what I was doing.

After a few years of this, I turned the business over to my partner and moved on into creating a new business, building websites for businesses. This went swimmingly well until I found myself with a customer who wanted a website for a business in Mexico. Part of the proposal was for me to go down to the area, check it out, and also take some photos for their website. Seemed like a good deal to me.

During the middle of the trip, I had this realization I wanted to do more of this. Travel around, take photos, and tell some stories.

I created a blog and Instagram and hit the ground running. This turned out to be a pivotal point in really pushing my skills forward. I found myself creating photos and capturing moments for companies I hadn’t even considered. I was turned into a lifestyle photographer and social influencer in a very short time. I couldn’t keep up with the demand, and it was an enormous amount of fun.

The 2020 pandemic brought a swift end to my travels and I began thinking about what else I could do with all of my photography gear. Boudoir caught my eye. I loved the idea of creating a scene or fantasy world in a completely different genre than a lifestyle brand.

Boudoir Photography

While I continue work creating lifestyle photography, I’ve found I yearn for more artistic photos. Enter, boudoir.

Boudoir began as a 1920’s style of French photography. The word itself means “private sitting room, or bedroom”. Decades gone by have brought glam and art which push the boundaries to create beautiful, romantic scenes. The images of the 20s to 40’s era usually demonstrated curvy women in lingerie, posing in opulent and elegantly decorated bedrooms. The 1940’s through 60’s brought glam in the form of pin-up girls. These decades highlighted curvaceous and flirty women. Corsets and stockings were prevalent and photo props were introduced.

The 1960’s and 1970’s introduced a large cultural shift. Photography had become a permanent fixture in the art world and boudoir-style photographs were becoming more widely acceptable. With the hippie movement in full swing, women were feeling more liberated than ever and started to bare more skin. Boudoir had a sense of effortless yet glamorous ease, and often included women without bras or sometimes even underwear. Boudoir photos were being increasingly featured in advertisements and fashion magazines.

In taking boudoir photography, I’ve found I can combine the personal style of photography I’ve developed with a sense of adventure, and experience of lifestyle to create incredible scenes for people.

I draw upon the styles of decades gone past, fitting personalities and personal preferences.

Whether I’m shooting someone for the first time or an experienced cosplayer or model, we can take on wish lists and fantasies and turn them into something that feels real.
