Photographers Spotlight – Kevin Trimmer
I “met” this weeks photographers spotlight like I have met a lot of recent photographers lately online through a forum (my online host for events, pictage has a forum where there is a collection of many great photographers). The main thing that really stuck out about his work from the start was how real the work felt. There was a very fresh feel to the work and his images made me feel like I was there at the wedding experiencing the moments right along the bride and groom. I hope you all enjoy learning a little about Kevin and seeing some of his work below:
Who are you …
I am extremely passionate in everything I do and enjoy life, color, emotion and exploration.
the reason I love what I do ….
I really love what I do because I get to meet some amazing people and document important moments in their life. It is such a great honor and thrill for me to tell a story with my camera.
who do you get your inspiration from …
I feel that I get my inspiration from life around me. My friends, family, loved ones, the outdoors, my clients – I feel each and everyone of them contribute in a way to what I do and who I am.
your photography specialty …
My main specialty is wedding and event photography – really focusing on the moments and emotion that happen throughout the day/event. On the side I also enjoy travel photography and editorial/commercial assignments.
who is your photo idol(s) …
There are so many amazing photographers out there – I am in constant awe of the work I come across. I’m relatively new but when I started shooting weddings, I really followed [and still do] Joe Buissink, Dennis Reggie and Ben Chrisman.
favorite photography product …
I like to keep it simple gear-wise but I’ve been really into my 16-35mm 2.8 lens lately. I love being able to capture a great wide view in a small room; plus its super fast and nice and sharp!
favorite movie …
Its funny, I haven’t seen many movies but of the ones that I have seen I like Apocalypse Now, The Ghostbusters and Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon.
last rental you watched …
I can’t remember the last movie I rented though I did watch Groundhog Day on TV recently. Hilarious!
where can you be found on days off …
On off days I can be found in the park playing frisbee, grabbing a burrito or going on a nice long hike in the woods.
what superhero would you be …
I would have to go with Superman – can fly and is pretty much invincible – can’t beat that!
if I am typically craving something it is ….
New York style pizza pie, Hot and Sour soup and a trip somewhere. Combine all 3 and that would be amazing!
what is your most fav photo you have recently taken …
One of my favorite phototgraphs from 2009 was from a wedding I photographed in New York City. After grabbing some group pictures on a dock we happened to stumble upon the red wall, took a couple quick frames and made our way back to the reception site. The thing I love most about this image is the amazing moment between the couple; it is so real, genuine and truly them.
