Gravey's Thread

If you don't know me, I'm James. I live in Philly and do a mix of freelance and hobby photography. I mainly use a 7D with an XSi as backup and Sigma, Rokinon and Canon glass. I'm mostly self-taught with a little knowledge here and there from some friends who shoot professionally.

Really I just like to engage in the act of taking photos, it helps me relax and explore. So, with that said, enjoy.

-James

That's some wild stuff right there, both the participants and the photography work.

Played second shooter yesterday for a friend doing an engagement shoot. They had their 4 year old with them so I got to distract her while the parents posed, overall good times

I got distracted and discouraged from posting in this thread but I need to bring it back and share my experiences.

OK Go @ Drexel University's Spring Jam. I was granted all access. There are more of the better ones in WDYS/PPTM: May. It took 4 days for the top controls on my 7D to dry out and become functioning again. My Rebel didn't go down at all.

I met Joe sitting in a wooden chair in a 50 year old vacuum shop in south Philly today. He's 92 years old and told me that sadly the shop was the last place for him to go as he has outlived all his friends. Despite his hardships, he's happy to be independent and walking at his age and was really fun to talk to.

James, it's been awhile since I popped in here to take a look and I just wanted to say that I'm continually impressed with your work.

Minus paintball...I'm sick of paintball so that goes for everyone. But, I wanted to let you know I appreciate your work man. Love the shots of the zoo. Most specifically this one:



Keep it up!!

Thanks man! I know what you mean about paintball, I'm not as into it as I once was but it's still fun from time to time. I just try to get a little more creative with it every time I shoot.

Was at the beach during the super moon. Didn't make it out before it was too late to get a good shot of the moonrise but I set up anyway to play around a bit.


Got this super moody snap of a boat slipping through the moonlight, took everything my camera had to get a decent shutter speed.


Alley cat posed for me.


Girlfriend plus cat, natural light



I'm a fan of facades lately as well

A friend asked me to shoot her senior collection for her fashion degree. I posted a few early shots in WDYS. It was a tough shoot, extremely hot indoors and muggy outside, then it started pouring. Ended up shooting on a porch which worked out.

I tried to taylor my processing to the style of the clothing and the designer's personality. One big factor I had a struggle with was lens type. Shooting anything less than telephoto felt too personal for me. Using my 70-200 left the backgrounds blurred out but didn't make the photos feel intimate, giving the clothing the most attention and not the person wearing it.

My videography caught the attention of a real estate columnist at the Philly Inquirer who doesn't write about anything worth less than 7 figures. Pretty bummed I'm not mentioned by name but it's great to be getting people's attention.

check it out
