Spotlight a Photographer!

25 10 2007

For the past few months we’ve featured photographers that we know or had heard of but we’ve also been given a few referrals which we’ve followed up on. Some of the suggestions we’ve been given have been for photographers who we personally hadn’t come across before but are extremely talented & were well worth featuring. Although there’s a long line of photographers’ names on our list that we’d like to interview, we’d love to hear from you if you know of a photographer that is deserving of a little DBUI spotlight. If you know a photographer that you feel is particularly creative or unique, leave a comment below and let us know who they are and we’ll contact them. And while you’re leaving those comments, let us know what kind of questions you would like to see us asking our new featured photographers!

Tracy Turpen is extremely talented. Her website is

I’d like to know how she gets the color to be vibrant but not overdone like so many photographers today. Also, if she brainstorms ideas at all before a shoot.

Another suggestion: How about making a DBUI “badge” to put on our site or blog (kinda like WPJA award thingies) so that we can have a cool “attention grabbing” link back to this site!?

I personally am a huge fan of Center Avenue Imaging. I’m biased, but I still think she’s great.

Anne- I’ll e-mail you a “badge”. That’s an idea we’ve been working on. Thanks for the great feedback. 🙂

I think you should feature Jason Connel. His work is completely amazing. His pictures capture more than just the moment; they capture the feeling of the moment. He definately has my business. Check out his site.

In my opinion you should feature Henk van Kooten FBIPP MQEP, one of the most talented and leading european photographers. His website is .

I am interested in doing a “trash the dress” session, I found Brian and
Briana Elledge of Divine Light Wedding Photography to do some amazing work. Their website is Question for you guys, how do you get the lighting to be so precise?

Thanks for all the suggestions so far… keep them coming!!

So far we’ve contacted Center Avenue, Tracy, Mark, Brian & Briana and I’ll be emailing Jason & Henk soon.

Erich, we’ve already asked Frank 🙂 I’ll give him a gentle reminder but he’s been pretty busy recently.

OK, i’m so late on this it’s fairly pathetic, but i was a little shy about nominating my wife, Katrina Wallace, the founder of Sedona Bride.

Katrina is the perfect example of a young woman that has worked so hard to make an impact in wedding and portrait photography, saying ‘ no’ to a regular office job, opting instead to ‘ starve’ and work hard as an artist. she’s my hero!

i now work full time with her as her second shooter, office manager, etc., but this studio would be nothing without her….
