Photographer in the News: Paul Tumason
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Another Monday is upon us, it’s the second in 2009 and with it business owners are struggling with these hard economic times. Photographers are no different of course and I ran across this article about photographer Paul Tumason and his search for a new studio after a steep rent increase. While that’s what the story was about this bit really caught my attention: Tumason is noted for incorporating a subjects favorite objects in his work and here’s my favorite little bit from the article:
He explains it saying his portraits are “about them, not just what they look like, but a story about the subject. That’s the goal of all my work.”
I’m going to let you in on my dream: to be a photographer, for people to chose me to capture their memories. For those photographers out there I wonder how important actual studio space is? What is your preferred place to shoot? Outdoors, in a studio or in your subjects environment? Do you encourage your subjects to bring their favorite things?
