Iím lucky to have made a career creating a lot of images and making a lot of friends. I have clients/friends that have been coming back for over thirty years. I really enjoy the collaborative exchange between client and photographer. Working together we have created award winning images. Itís been a lot of fun and artistically rewarding.
Whether itís a Fortune 500 company or a small startup, I fight for the best possible photos that can be produced. When I say fight, I mean that sometimes you have to struggle against the challenges and not give in until you have created a work of art.
My education in engineering has proved invaluable in my understanding of light and the physics behind the shot. I suppose that is the reason that I shoot as much high tech as I do. I have had to design and build custom equipment because it just doesnít exist in the wild. This crazy assortment of tools and techniques are a big reason why I get the results I that I do.
Technology is a fact of life in the world of photography today. The balance between right brain and left brain can be elusive. Art shouldnít have to be a tradeoff. I feel fortunate to have both sides of my brain firing.
Ever in a hurry, I was messing with digital photography as far back as 1986. I can certainly say that I had the very first digital studio in Utah. Things have changes a lot in the intervening 24 years. Today I use the latest medium format digital gear that really delivers the goods.
Take a moment to browse my galleries at www.twede.com, and you will see some images that transcend traditional photography. These are images that make people look.
I shoot the shots that sell the products.
