the form of photography. Working together, sharing ideas, fueling
each other with inspiration is the most exciting and rewarding thing
we can do. As artists, it is our ultimate goal to share ourselves
with others and have a lasting impact upon the people we touch.
Photography is our love and passion. It is something that we live,
dream, talk, study...it is indeed our passion. Cameras are always
at our side...we are always looking. Each roll of film is like a
present, waiting to be opened. It offers us the opportunity to play,
record, and discover."
William and Mary, both photographers and both holding the prestigious
Master of Photography Degree from the Professional Photographers
of America, are in total control of the images they create. Together,
they edit each photograph deciding from there if the photograph
meets their standards. Most of the time they agree, but once in
a while they disagree. When that happens, they put the photo aside
and review it at a later date. Mary cuts the mats and William
frames the photographs. The ultimate product ending up in their
booth is a mutual collaboration.
Their supply of cameras include: large format, medium format,
and 35mm. They seek out colorful and unusual scenes to capture
and depending on the lighting situation, the location, and the
specific subject matter will determine which film they use. The
negatives are printed by an outside lab and each print has their
approval before it is printed for display, making dire the color,
cropping, and density are all correct.
"Our subject matter comes from our love of people, flowers,
architectural design, and most of all visual impact."
