Light, Camera, Action
Bring action and movement to still photography, and make exciting pictures. Experiment with light and angles, movement and focus to create photographs that create dynamic and exciting images. We’ll work together as photographers and subjects. We’ll find unique locations and points of view. We’ll make mistakes, break some rules, and with a little luck come up with some great photos!
