Ted believes that portraiture is photography's highest calling. He knows that a truly great photo captures the very essence of the subject, allowing the viewer a tiny breathtaking glimpse directly into the soul of the photographee. He takes every picture assuming it is preordained to appear on the next cover of Time magazine. When he is not behind the camera lens you can find him in the hospital at his dead-end day job as a medical doctor.
Photography is really all about chasing light and optimally showcasing the astounding beauty in the little details all around us every day. I love the marriage of artistry and technology required for a truly breathtaking photo. I love helping people capture this beauty in a way that it can be enjoyed by anyone, forever.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I photograph all types of portraiture, from corporate headshots to candid profile photos to pet photos and everything in between. But I think my specialty is casual posing for personal portfolios. I love capturing people when they are genuinely comfortable and relaxed and sometimes it takes quite a bit to get people there, especially if posing is new for them. I take the time to get to know clients and take a genuine interest in who they are, which really increases the comfort with the entire process and allows for some truly great and natural portrait photos.
