Today’s Interview is with Shawn Reeder Photography & Music…

*What is your favorite thing to photograph? I have 5 different things that I love to shoot and I love them all equally but they each come in waves.  Landscapes, Climbing, Yoga, Outdoor Lifestyle, and People in Love. 

*Describe your photography style: Its hard to put words to an artistic style.  Natural, organic, real, these are words that try to describe what I strive for, although its really just words.  I want to capture the essence of my subject whether it be a person or a landscape.  My photography tends to be an interpretation of how I see the world, and since I try to see the beauty in everything, I hope this comes through in my work.

*What is a must read or must see? The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey is what I’m currently reading and its so …

There is one thing I know we all like to see when we look at the blogs we follow…images!  The Pictage Blog will now showcase an image every week from one of our members.  We’ll also get the scoop on “Inside the image” so you can find out why and how it was shot and more!

Our debut feature was taken by Grant Oakes of Grant Oakes Photography.

“The bride had a close relationship with a developer, and therefore had access to a brand new luxury show home for her wedding.  The spiral staircase in the front entryway was too good to pass up for some amazing images.  It was photographed with a 15mm fisheye held over my head to get it as high as possible.  I liked the image so much I used part of it for the logo of my new venture, Tafota.com.”
