Photographing Jamie Lee Curtis

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to work as an event photographer?

In this episode I photograph a Fund Her event hosted by my friend Adrienne and Jamie Lee Curtis. Fund her supports women candidates for office. Link to their site below!

Check out Fund Her:

One thing I love to do is bring along a film camera to every job I shoot. I just get so much job out of shooting film and it really keeps things interesting. I’ve been doing this for a long time so I welcome the change. It keeps me sharp and encourages creativity.

But what you see in this episode is all POV footage of me shooting digital.

What is the job of a roaming event photographer?

As you will see in this video, the main job of an event photographer is to document various interactions. However, if you follow my work, you know that I think every image needs to be about something. That can be an interaction, a reaction, an emotional moment…whatever. So long as it has value. A photographer should never raise their camera just to take a picture. They should be raising their camera because they see something they want to document.

I have been a professional photography work for 10 years while teaching photography at the same time. Follow the links below to see my work.
