Adagio for Color || Visibility

A big part of being an artist is taking risks. Adding color to that expanding portfolio of yours.

Doing something different.

Doing something that elicits a different kind of response. Good or bad is up to the beholder.

I did this shoot a while ago, and to be honest, I was scared to post a lot of the images because I had a sense that the sexual nature of the images would not be received well. I thought that my wedding clients would see these and think “Well, I don’t want him to photograph my wedding.” It has actually been a big dilemma with me for a while. What should I post? What can I post? How will it be received.

So you know what my conclusion finally is?

FUCK IT.

If you don’t like what you see.┬áThen don’t hire me. If you don’t understand or respect that this is my art, and just seek out rando and boring photographers. Well, go ahead. I am not your person. I’m not going to be scared of what to post anymore. This is my photography. And I am proud of it.

So here are some awesome images from a paint shoot I took. They are colorful, full of fun sexual energy, and came out fantastic. If you have a problem with that, or the fact that it is two men together, too bad, you’re just going to have to deal with it. Because trust me when I say, if this was some famous photographer from The Knot with a man and woman I GUARANTEE reaction would be A LOT different. It would be completely praised. Not filled with concern. LGBT photographers and subjects, It is vital more than ever to be more visible and I refuse to do the opposite.

It was actually a fellow wedding photographer that told me posting these pictures was a bad idea. thanks for your concern, but kindly fuck off.

    Wonderful pictures! I hold my thumbs that people see that this is another way you express your artistry! People are sometimes quick to judge for an aspect of a human being. My experience is that regardless of whether you are true to yourself or not, there will always be those who do not like what you do. So you might as well be the one you are and embrace differences within yourself and others.
