"No One Can Steal My Vision"

Loch Coruisk Wedding Photographer Photo
“No one can steal my vision.”
I heard the above quote in a Bambi Cantrell Masterclass recently and it really impressed.  Bambi was talking about the way in which some photographers closely guard their secrets and are afraid to share ideas and concepts.  The reason Bambi was unconcerned about sharing her secrets was because “no one can steal” her vision.
A recent Euphoria blog discussed the secret of a posing concept we executed.  As Bambi pointed out, even if someone does try to copy your vision, they cannot because they simply do not have your vision.  They have their own and however desperately they try to duplicate your work, they cannot.  This is why we can only ever draw inspiration from other photographic artists.
The above image was shot by Roz, inspired by a Jerry Ghionis fashion shoot.  The still, reflective and almost eerie atmosphere of Loch Coruisk formed the backdrop.  We placed the bride on the rock, in a “flying position,” and where she was effectively reflected in the loch.  Then, Roz waited for the moment when a large seagull glided into her composition and pressed the shutter.  The result is above.  The bride looks up at the soaring gull and appears to be about to fly upwards to join it.  No one can steal this vision.  If they try to duplicate it, they cannot bring together all the interplaying elements nor have Roz’ vision.
Interestingly, once an original image such as this has been taken, we would never succeed in recreating it ourselves!  One bride was so thrilled by the romance of this photograph that she wanted “to fly” at her own Loch Coruisk Elopement.  We explained that the elements in that image could not be duplicated but that we would have her “fly” in her own unique photographs!
For each set of clients, we like to get to know you and create uniquely gorgeous wedding photographs for you to treasure for always.
