Photographer Spotlight | Sarah Brookhart Photography

Name:    Sarah Brookhart

Business Name:    Sarah Brookhart Photography

Website:    www.sarahbrookhart.com

Where are you based out of?   Baltimore, MD and Lancaster, PA

Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer?   full-time

What is your predominant photographic specialization?    Natural light wedding and lifestyle photography

What camera(s) do you currently shoot with?    Canon 5D Mark III

How would you define your style?

I would define my style as artistically-inspired photojournalism.  I am inspired by natural light and relationship dynamics.

 

What motivated you to become a photographer?

I have always appreciated the notion of visual storytelling.  I am also passionate about the covenant of marriage.  Combining these two passions and turning it into a career sounded like a great idea to me!

What is it that you try to convey with your work?

I am fascinated by the idea of capturing a still image of an instant, a visual memory that can be experienced after the fact.  I strive to document real, authentic moments for couples who appreciate adventure and creativity.  I believe in creating a series of photos that tell the unique story of my couples and their day.

How do you accomplish that?

I try to bring this visual concept to fruition by anticipating moments.  This is a skill I’ve learned overtime having observed and captured many, many couples.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?

I have been inspired by so many photographers as I’ve grown and developed as a photographer myself.  I love Ben Sasso’s unique use of light and Jordan Voth’s composition.  Both of these photographers inspire me to think outside the box.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?

I have loved being my own boss and being entirely responsible for the progress of my business.  I feel most rewarded when my couples tell me they feel I captured the mood of their day.

What is one thing you have learned during your career?

I went to college for elementary education, so most things about this career have been learned through friendly peers or personal trial and error. I have learned about the immeasurable value of developing relationships with others in the industry.  It’s great to have an industry friend with whom I can discuss the trials and triumphs of running a small business.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?

I currently use the engraved USBs on natural wood and the pine print and USB box.

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?

My clients are happily surprised to see the aesthetically pleasing packaging.  Additionally, this creative presentation means the clients are more likely to share a photo of their packaging on social media! Free publicity!

Photographer Spotlight | Meet the Bowsers

Names:    Lauren & Jared

Business Name:    The Bowsers

Website:    www.wearethebowsers.com

Where are you based out of?   Jacksonville, FL

Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer?   Full-time

What is your predominant photographic specialization?    Weddings

What camera(s) do you currently shoot with?    Canon Mark III, 6D

 

How would you define your style?

REAL. Natural, photojournalistic, romantic photos that capture your most authentic moments. No posed non-sense. We don’t slap a filter on and call it a day. Your photos should feel timeless. We strive to achieve that.

What motivated you to become a photographer?

Corporate America, ha! I like being my own boss. Nothing beats working from home in your pj’s, making your own hours, and taking a day off when you need it. I also loved photography so I decided to make a career out of it. Eventually, I moved to Chicago and started working for a men’s fashion company called Trunk Club. That really boosted my desire to learn and practice more.

What is it that you try to convey with your work?

We try to convey real emotion. I want our couples to look back at their photos and remember what an awesome time they had. We want them to feel what it actually felt to be in that moment again.

How do you accomplish that?

We try to build relationships with our couples. It’s important to us that our couples are comfortable around us, and are able to be themselves. I also think getting to work with your significant other, who is also your best friend, brings a contagious amount of energy to every shoot.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?

Yes! Too many to name. I love Lauren Apel. Her work is stunning and it sets her so far apart from other photographers. She has a way of photographing couples that is so natural and uniquely beautiful. I also love Katch Silva & Sara Byrne. Their photos come off effortless and so full of life. They are all insanely talented.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?

Before I did weddings I was the photographer for a men’s fashion company called Trunk Club. I had amazing opportunities through that company and have several photos in GQ, Elle,  Refinery 29, Travel & Leisure, and Delta Airlines. Nothing beats seeing your photos in print whether they are for a magazine or a wedding package.

What is one thing you have learned during your career?

Building a business takes time. I think a lot of photographers get discouraged because they don’t have overnight success. Photography is a never-ending learning process.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?

We use the wooden mahogany USB and the flash drive box holder in every gift package to our clients. I also love my handmade cotton camera strap. After we re-brand I might switch things up, I’m lovin’ the rose gold USB’s!

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?

Photographer Supply Co. has beautiful products and wonderful customer service. I love being able to send something that is beautiful and able to be customized. I love the quality, the finishes, the diversity of products offered, and the fast shipping. I’m always impressed & that’s why we keep coming back.
