A Moment, That’s All You Have…

People often ask me why do I love photography so much.. To many they will have to wonder and formulate an answer that appeases the tastebuds of the interrogator, for me it simple. I do this not just because of my love and passion for photography, but also because I am capturing a moment in time that will never be relived again, I’m actually contributing to history. Some folks will look at me like I’m crazy, but I don’t mind… See, the thing is, this island a hundred years ago looked quite different, all that remains from the past are the pictures. It’s the physical evidence that this moment has already become history… It is a position I regard very highly and so, I aspire in all I do, to be very detailed about the way I document the various locations I shoot at in this island. See, come tomorrow and this world changes, all we’ll have are our memories and our images. In a world so advanced technologically, we must strive not just to capture the moments that are happening all around us, but see ourselves as a bigger part of the puzzle. We’re the ones writing history… Click!IMG_0037.JPG

Beachmentz!

It’s always wonderful to experience new moments, especially moments that speaks to your emotions as well as your being.. Had an old school friend message me a few weeks ago, letting me know that she’s getting married… I gladly directed her to my website as she already knows the quality of work I do.. She booked a package and forwarded the information about the area in which the ceremony would be taking place… On the day of her wedding, a very bright and sunny Sunday after lunch, I arrived on time, and early, only to find out that it was a beach ceremony.. I was in awe an immediately called my wife and said to her very excitingly, “babe! Is ah beach wedding!!”. Never had done one before and was really pleased for the opportunity.. Gotta be prepared for everything in sweet T&T!

Picture Perfect!

Being a Trinidad Wedding Photographer, I always encounter the unusual at a wedding. Most times the major unusual comes from guests afraid to approach me for a candid portrait.. I am a very well known individual, maybe not as well known as others, but I am also well respected for my views and approach to my craft, clients and personality. I guess sometimes my reputation precedes me, causing a lot to see me in a more serious light.. But as photographers, we have the ability to change a lot of things, one being the way others see who we are.. I’m a really cool lad, I laugh and kid around, especially when I’m working at weddings, concerts and such, not to create a person that I’m not, but just to bring out the person that my clients and their patrons are.. Photography should only move us to tears, when one remembers the value of the moment that image depicted.. Keep shooting and keep doing what it takes to make your clients smiling. Be different and change the world through your difference…

Scarlet

Seeing them every time is an amazing experience. The way they change the blue sky into red, they wipe out the green in the foliage when they’re in large numbers.. The most visible and visit able place to see them, is here.. We usually get there around 4pm, organize with the boat that was pre arranged to take us on the tour, as we seek out, cameras in hand to see one of our nation’s national birds, the Scarlet Ibis.. It’s a breathtaking, scenic adventure that always leaves me in awe and with a ton of pics.. Even though you need a good high ISO dslr and a lens not less than 400mm, I was still able to capture some stunning images of nature and wildlife.. It’s a place we all must visit, especially those of us that live in Trinidad.. The Caroni Bird Sanctuary, relaxing, fun and totally worth it!

David and Isha

What started off as a bright and sunny Sunday, quickly turned into a dark and rainy one.. There’s an old saying here in Trinidad which goes like this, “if you eat in pot, rain is gonna fall on your wedding day” I guess it was just heavy showers of blessings.. Eventually the rain subsided, allowing the proceedings to run flawlessly.. David, the groom, arrived after Isha. She was anxious to become his wife… After which, we headed to Palmiste Park, La Romaine in Trinidad to capture some special moments with friends and family.. As the evening sun became more golden, we were in the right place at the right moment to capture this special memory, before heading back to the reception.. A small wedding it was, but a lovely evening with lovely folks indeed…
