I WANT TO TAKE PHOTOS LIKE YOU //

I realize that a large number of you readers out there are actually photographers yourself. You range from amateur to professional. How do I know this? Well, because I do the same thing as you! I delve into photographer’s blogs quite often. I love looking at photos because I love taking photos. So, here are some goodies for YOU.

 

WORKSHOPS + MENTORING SESSIONS //

A great way to learn all about how I do things around here is to see me in action. If you are at the point of wanting to take things to the next level and feel a little lost, I would love to help you! Please drop me a line and tell me about yourself via my CONTACT page and we can try to figure out a great solution for you. I’m not the type of guy that keeps secrets and tries to hide the way I do things in my business. I want other aspiring photographers to succeed and bring great things to our industry.

  • Canon 5D Mark ii
  • Contax 645 [film]

Film Stock:

  • Kodak Portra 400 - this is my preferred film because of the beautiful bold colors 
  • Fuji 400H -  I use this film on occasion because it has such unique hues and can be gorgeous in certain light

Lenses:

  • Canon  35mm f/1.4  -  this is my favorite lens to shoot with… it’s on my camera about 80% of the time. it gives my images a larger than life feel.
  • Canon 85mm f/1.2 – an absolute smooth-as-butter lens that is terrific in low-light. particularly useful during wedding ceremonies and receptions.
  • Canon 45mm Tilt-Shift  -  the lens I go to when I’m feeling extra creative.
  • Canon 70-200mm f/2.8  -  I pull this baby out when the church folks tell me to stay in the back… I’ll show them! I also occasionally use it during portrait sessions because it does cool things with the sun.
  • Canon 50mm f/1.4  –  probably the best lens to buy if you’re on a budget! great portrait style lens that will work well in low light.

Matt Ethan - Hey Ryan! You’re right! It’s really good to see what other photographers use in their work! Seeing what you’re using has confirmed for me to stick with 7D and 5D Mkii and not spend the extra on another 5D!
