Often when I am photographing a wedding, someone will ask me what I really like to take pictures of. The truth is that I love taking photographs at weddings – I really have a blast. But what about on my own time? I have a hard time answering this. In short, it depends. Sometimes I will have a concept for a series that I shoot for over a period of time. Sometimes I am just inspired when I find things, like this vintage photograph covered with years of crumbled plaster. I’m not sure how to properly explain that. Often I use my camera to simply keep a visual journal of my life. Lately it has been really hot here in Salt Lake City. The dogs I know just want to stay cool, and it doesn’t matter to them whether they jump in a lake or a plastic kiddie pool. They just want to get wet – this makes me smile every time. And no, I wouldn’t recommend getting your lens that close to a dog in a pool!
