Me? Not a big fan of talking about me, but here goes . . .
I’m Seth and I’ve been a storyteller of one kind or another all my life. When I was five, I’d put on impromptu theatrical performances for my parents’ dinner guests. This prompted my folks to enroll me in acting classes, leading to an early career on stage and screen. While attending arts school, I learned the fundamentals of photography, back when the art form was still mostly analog. I can still remember the acrid aroma of the developer fluid in the darkroom. I’ve tried my hand at writing fiction more than once or twice and co-produced and starred in a full-length independent feature film (still in post-production). But photography? I’m obsessed. I mean, at night, I dream about it. Seriously. Conceiving of and setting up shoots. Editing images. And when I wake up, I’m always stoked to realize it’s my actual, real-life job.
I really enjoy the challenges and creative constraints of telling a story, teasing out meaning and emotion, in a single, two-dimensional frame. So, yeah, every time I show up to a shoot, no matter the occasion, be it a local or destination wedding, an event, or family lifestyle session, I’m fired up and ready to craft some killer images.
Hm. Let’s see. What else? I’m an only-mildly-anxious-soon-to-be-first-time husband. And I’m a dad. Our kids, Silas and Penelope, are both bitchin’ human beings. I love fatherhood. It’s mostly joy and delight, punctuated by moments of sheer terror. Haha!
Thanks for listening to my story. I look forward to telling some of yours.
