Category: Documentary photography

It is not my responsibility to make moments happen, it’s simply my interest to photograph them and preserve them. I enjoy documentary photography: It’s all about people….being people. I believe passionately that it is about the story I convey. It’s about the people, it’s about the love and interaction, but most of all, documentary photography is about the moment. The decisive moment, as the famous photographer Cartier Bresson explained it.

Documenting Amy’s 50th anniversary

A friend of my daughter-in-law asked if I would document a party celebrating her 50th anniversary. I’m still growing as a photographer and slowly developing my own style. In stead of traditional shots, I’m adopting some of my street photography experiences when documenting events like a party or anniversary.

I find great inspiration in Kevin Mullins. He’s a documentary photographer mostly working with weddings. Inspiration from street photography and photojournalism has obviously a great impact on his style too.

Amy just turned 50 and invited her friends and family to celebrate. A party in the local sports club. Quite informal. She wanted a posed shot of all guests. Not exactly my thing, but of course… When everyone started mingling with a glass of bubbles in their hand, I had a great time. I want my “clients” to remember the actual moments instead of what the photographer wanted them to do. This was the perfect moment.

What do you think? Feel free to share your comment below 🙂

Brides

This weekend I had a walk in the city together with my daughter. I one of the shopping centers we met several brides walking among customers. A nice view I’d dare to say :-). Anyway, it turned out to be a NICE marketing event.
