Her smile

Recently I was contacted by a young lady who wanted me to shoot her very recent graduation from Weber state. I...hesitated. First, I photograph nature's landscape, not the human landscape. I've done a couple of odd weddings here and there but there are better. Most people think "Oh, he is good with a camera so no problem, he can do this!" Wrong. I respect the different genres in photography, People get very good at what they specialize in with photography (anything for that matter). Had I still lived in Germany I would DEFINITELY had passed her on to the "portrait experts" but I 'm Utah and don't know any. So I took it on and I'm happy I did. An opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone and interact with my subject doesn't come all every day...her smile.

I have always benefited from the talent of the models I have worked with.
