Photography and Passion

Photography has been a living passion in the lives of many. A sheer driving force in the backbone of those always striving for perfection in bringing a reproduction of something existing or created to life in the form of a visual art piece. An ever evolving art form and a rapidly expanding medium ensures the serious enthusiast and professional a growing and endless array of knowledge and expertise to create images that have the potential to evoke emotion which in turn makes the art limitless. Just as this art form evolves and recreates itself, so does CWPhotography.

Here is a mens watch which is a continuation of a previous shoot that I posted a few weeks ago.
I am starting to enjoy shooting watches now that I have the basic techniques ironed out.
The sky is the limit.....and the sky is limitless.....

Inspirational stuff.....

I'm sure most people in the industry knows who Hunter Freeman is, I only got thrown into his world a few minutes ago and thought he is absolutely worth mentioning in here (understatement..). I would love to assist him on a few of his shoots. Maybe one day I'll build up the will to contact him, who knows.....maybe he'll exchange a few words through a mail or two.

His work is humorous and very clever and technically superb.

"Always try to express the qualities that are part of what you’re made of — "


“I have to find a way to connect with the subject on a personal level, so that they’re thinking about the relationship between them and me rather than the photographer and subject, so that I can get a look or an expression that’s extremely real.”
