Follow Fitness Photography is one of the areas of photography I am most passionate about.  It speaks to me on a personal level as physical fitness has been a part of my life from a young age.  Being a small kid in high school isn’t easy.  I turned to martial arts and weight training at a young age to try to build myself up both mentally and physically.  Both marital arts and bodybuilding take a significant amount of dedication to reach the goals a person sets out to achieve.  When it comes to great Fitness Photography so many important aspects come into play.  The first and most important aspect is the subjects conditioning.  If the subjects conditioning isn’t at their best this could make or break a photo session.  As an example, I had photographed a male fitness competitor on a couple different occasions.  Our first shoot was on point both from a photography perspective and from the clients conditioning perspective.  So the next time I got a call to photograph him I was expecting the same level of conditioning from our first session.  Unfortunately, he had dieted so strictly and reduced his water intake so much that his muscles looked flat and he no longer had the look he desired for the photo session. The next most important aspect is the lighting and composition of the photos.  How you light the human body and compose the photos is absolutely critical to shape the muscles and define the fitness subject.  Placing the lights at the proper angle and power setting in order to get just enough light on the face and eyes while...

Follow Wedding Photography is truly one of the most important types of photography anyone will ever invest in.  Documenting the love that two people share is one of my favorite parts of my profession as a professional portrait and wedding photographer.  Wedding Photography is also one of the only things you truly get to keep after the wedding is over.  The flowers will die, the food will be eaten, but the memories of your wedding photos will remain.     It is such a beautiful experience to be able to share a bride and grooms wedding day with them. It is an honor to be chosen to photograph all the special moments they share on their big day.  It is even more rewarding when the bride and groom happen to be very close friends of many years. E.J. and Brooke are two of the most caring loving people I have ever met. Your love for each other is incredible. “Here we stand at Burning Man, rings in hand, to celebrate the union of this woman with this man. Who for faithful love plan to get married today and never, ever disband. So if you want to be part of our clan, then feel free to stand or grab a patch of sand as we apply ourselves now to the task at hand.” -Officiant and Good Friend to E.J. & Brooke, Val Tramonte   Congratulations to you both, with Love Marcello.            ...

If you’re getting married in the near future, and would like your photos to reflect your personality, I have listed some of the most creative and fun wedding photography ideas for you to use.   Fuel Your Wedding Photography Ideas Reflections – The use of reflections in photos can create unique and fun images. You may want to consider photographing your wedding party near a lake. Not only will you benefit from the natural beauty, but the reflection you capture in the water can create a dynamic image. Mirrors are another creative way to capture reflections. Rather than capture an image head on, try capturing the reflection in a mirror instead. The end result can be rather beautiful and unexpected. Before And After – Some of the best wedding images captured are when the bride and bridesmaids are preparing. You can often capture special moments that are often missed between the bride and those around her during this time.
