So here lately I have been doing a lot of Hotel and Motel Photography. Which makes sense since I have been in the hotel industry for about 20 years. So now that I have decided on my course, I am really enjoying taking photo's of different hotels and seeing the different looks of each hotel. Checkout my work today by looking at my portfolio.
Currently I am in the process of rebranding myself. Though I love taking photo's of all kinds of things (Landscapes, Weddings, Portraits, etc.), I have found that I am getting more and more into enjoying taking Real Estate and Hotel photography. Though I have not gotten very far in this, I do tend to enjoy it more than I thought I would. So given the fact that I am looking to focus more on one type of photography I have decided this is my course.
I have over the past couple years focused on taking different genres of photography to try an pinpoint which one I enjoy the most. Though I have often loved taking portraits and conceptual photography, Real Estate and Hotel Photography has seemed to grow on me.
So as the days and weeks progress I am rebranding myself from Lakeside Pictures to Jerry Colbert Photography. Though I more than likely will keep my existing photo's on the website, the site will start transforming itself into a more streamed lined website dedicated to Real Estate, Hotel and Architectural Photography.
My Project 365 has been postponed to start on January 1, 2014.
I am starting a new project called Project 365. Though I have gotten off on a rough start, the idea is to take pictures every day and pick the best picture each day and post it.'
The thought behind this is to help me become accustomed to how my camera works and to help me have an understanding of the elements that make up photography as if it is second nature to me.
To be honest, the reason I love shooting weddings is that it is the one day where everyone is typically the happiest. Where everyone gets along and the atmosphere is quite exhilarating. Though most photographers will tell you that it is also the most tiring for the photographer as we are expected to capture every moment of the wedding and rightfully so. Though we do tend to be on our feet for the entire wedding and reception, it is also a great opportunity to meet new people and to revel in the excitement of the moment that a new wedding presents.
After all, capturing a moment in time that will never repeat itself is what photography is all about. Isn't that what your wedding should be? A moment in time captured forever.
I decided to create a new website to showcase my portfolio in a better light. I hope you enjoy the new site and if you do and you are in need of some photo's for you or your family, email me and I will send you a customized quote.
