More about Wayne G....
What do you love about your job?
I love to create. It's more than just pushing a button. It's seeing a perspective of the subject in my mind and attempting to capture that. Angles, Perspective and Lighting can make an ordinary subject something special. I am constantly learning, always trying to better my talent.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I recently covered a High School Softball team for Media Day. These photos are shot on a white background so that they can later be edited to have different backgrounds masked in. The girls enjoyed shoot because once we have the required poses asked for, I let them choose their own poses with their friends. Takes a little longer, but it's a lot of fun.
