This is a three part architectural fine art series that I created recently while one location in Charleston, South Carolina. Though today I'm a working professional in the world commercial photography, I've been an artist my entire life. I've enjoyed creating art with many mediums over the years including but not limited to drawing, painting, sculpture, photography and music. This short series is an homage to those years of studying the elements and principles of design such as line, form, shape, repetition, space color, texture, and rhythm.

Truth be told, this series didn't happen intentionally. I didn't seek out the creation of these images, in fact they found me. I was traveling in South Carolina and had an opportunity to hop on a boat and spend a good portion of the day on the Atlantic ocean. While on the boat, I saw many things that caught my eye, including some nearby dolphins. But I've always been fascinated with bridges for some reason. They also bear many philosophical meanings. I photographed these bridges traveling at least 40 mph. With my camera in hand, I quickly composed and framed this series of bridge photographs capturing what naturally came to my mind's eye. I’m always intrigued by finding the simplicity in something so seemingly complex.

This fine art bridge series isn't about technical approach. It's not about documenting the environment in which the bridge exists. It's about creating a mood, and a feeling. I think these images offer the viewer a haunting beauty. These images are desolate in the fact that there are no clouds floating around in the sky... as if everything is at a stand still. There are no moving cars. No people. Just metal structures in the sky with a lot of negative space, repetitive lines, shape and form. But deeper than that, a sense of mystery and alternate thinking. 

I think it's important that we don't always take things at face value. Many things in life have much deeper meanings. Look at the before and after of this architectural image. It may look like a pretty mundane image at first glance, however when meticulously processed in black and white the image takes on a completely different mood.

Why Professional Portraits Are Important In Today's Digital Marketplace | Digital Art That Rocks LLC | Mishawaka, IN

 Why Professional Portraits Are Important In Today's Digital Marketplace | Digital Art That Rocks LLC | Mishawaka, IN

WHY ARE PROFESSIONAL PORTRAITS IMPORTANT? 

In todays world, a large majority of "first impressions" are often digital. Both professional & business related interactions often start online whether it’s through a company website or social media. Your professional headshot goes a long way in delivering a consistent digital identity & personal brand across all platforms that you choose to utilize. A professional headshot can help you establish credibility & trust when you’re connecting with other professionals on social media networks like Linkedin. Approach these digital interactions as you would any first impression.

PERSONAL BRANDING 

People don’t buy from companies, they buy from brands. Everyone has their own personal brand. Even if you work for a large company, sales are often generated as a direct result of a one on one interaction with a personal brand within that company. Whether you’re happy in your current position or you’re looking for new career opportunities, your personal brand is the catalyst for professional growth.
