THE TOURIST PROJECT
Herbert is a top rated modern photographer located in St Augustine, Florida. His photos are simple and glamorous in nature. He often only takes one lens on photo outings, and he enjoys taking photos of shapes and lights that he finds interesting. Herbert recently moved to Florida from the DMV / NYC markets and is excited to showcase his talents with a new audience as well continue current relationships with his clients, he is our vision.......
At TLP Photo we are passionate about the craft of visual storytelling and focus on creating images that have photographic authenticity. We work in close collaboration with clients to achieve the best possible outcomes. Supported by the use of technology and experience, our efficient workflows ensure that we can effectively lead clients through the entire image process from concept development to final delivery.
By shooting personal projects, we can come out of our comfort zone and start working in areas that we might not normally feel as comfortable in. Part of the joy of photography is experimentation – to see what works and what doesn’t. As a studio photographer, I work primarily with studio lighting and one of the nice things about undertaking personal projects is that I can either experiment with new lighting techniques, or just go out and leave them behind!
This project came to a good friend, Jeff Martin and myself due the fact we were running full time photo studios and had little to no time for travel and our true love ART~! During our trips to New York we would chat with Robert Rodriguez Jr always asking him to host a workshop in one of our studio back in Baltimore / DC area with no avail. Jeff and I would ask ourselves why does Robert really only stay in his neighborhood, finally we asked him one day. Robert told us; why go away from his studio, his environment, what he knows and sees because all the ART he could ever desire is in his backyard.
With all that said I started to scout tourist locations near me and as I travel near me and family trips. I would love to say it is easy as just snapping a photo and I have art. There is still much planning with weather, planetary alignments, and seasons to mention a few.
In the collection we have made art in Savannah, DC, Gettysburg, Virginia, Maryland, Pittsburgh PA, and Florida with more to come keeping in mind we are currently working on two additional projects The Toy Box and Driftwood Beach. To see the Tourist Project please CLICK HERE.
