Graduation Season

Hey guys,

Today I’m going to share photo that I don’t usually share since they don’t really fit my “style”. I personally enjoy getting creative with poses, shadow play, and composition, but the truth of the matter is, what I enjoy creating doesn’t really pay the bills.

This month has definitely been my most successful since starting my own business as a photographer in Seattle, and I have Graduation Season to thank for that! My weeks have been filled with eager graduates ready to capture these moments before either going to college, or entering the work force, and after having conversations with them, it seems like most of them are scared of what the future holds.

As you can imagine, they don’t really want any crazy photos using cool shadows for their graduation photos, so I’ve been keeping things rather normal, but still try to find my own style to add to the editing. You also have to keep in mind that these people are not models, and don’t practice posing, so being in front of the camera for the first time can be a bit intimidating. This really challenged me as a photographer, since I’m so used to working with models, and people that know their angles.

Anyway, here are some photos I’ve taken this month! Hope you enjoy.

Until next time,
