School Prom: personal shots from a professional photographer
November 9 2012
No matter how many years I've been doing this job, and how many high-profile clients and agencies I've worked for, some personal projects can still really stir the emotions.
And so it was with my daughter's school prom recently. I was asked to take the official photographs throughout the evening, capturing the excitement and anticipation, the atmosphere and the exuberance. But it wasn't just the young women and their prom partners who were running with high emotion. It was a very special occasion for me, too, and far more than just a photography job.
Here are just a few of the many shots I took of the youngsters (I also shot the whole class as they entered the assembly hall and captured the fun of the first dance). My aim was to engage with the kids and really catch their individual characters, along with the excitement each was feeling.
Thank you to my daughter's school for inviting me to photograph this year's prom. This was one photography project I'll remember my whole life!
