ROBERT WILDE - FASHION PHOTOGRAPHER IN LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK
I photograph visual stories. Visual stories create mood and emotions and made the audiences car. Stories create the connection.
Fashion companies desire emotions for their designs - and emotions come from stories and situations. Getting an idea across, a mood, a concept - involve at the blink of an eye.
A portrait- the essence of a person in one look. Just as the one look we get when others see us for the first time.
But in a portrait that first look can be sophisticated. Looks have meaning in a portrait. They point towards the mind and the character.
When you look at one of my portraits, you are looking at a human being, you are looking at the essence.
PHOTOGRAPHY FOR TECH AND VENTURE ENTREPRENEURS AND FUNDING
A photograph puts an idea on the table with a concreteness that convinces.
Few read through long concepts but if they get the concept presented in one photograph they will consider. Is your idea a bit abstract and removed from every day experience? It can still be presented in a concrete photograph.
This is the power of a visual concept: let people see what advantage your technology, your idea, your point of view has for them.
One of my passions is Quantum Physics. You can't get more abstract than that - but you can still create images that makes people understand what it is about.
There is no idea out there that cannot be set into a photograph that will show - not tell - what it is about. It is of a convincing power that is second to none.
