How did Dave and I start doing photography together? It all started with The Thick of It.
I’ve always loved photography, I’d ask for Lens & Shutter gift certificates for my birthday so I could save up to get the best flash my camera (at the time a Canon Rebel xti) could have. My brothers have even pooled in for a tripod, and at Christmas I got a lens filter I had asked for… So when Dave’s best friend Mike asked him, “Do you know any good cheap photographers?” Dave told Mike that I had a camera, and we could do the shoot. Since we’d never done one before, we’d only charge $50.
This shoot lit the fire in us that had us decide that we wanted to pursue photography. It was so much fun shooting such a wickedly awesome group of guys. We still love the photos from this shoot.
Some things we’ve learned? Though watermarks make you feel protected, they are distracting to the photo.
