Sean Scheidt: Fashion, Portraits, and Experimetal

Relationships are essential. An image is not only a dialogue between itself and a viewer, but a conversation between the photographer and subject.

Meeting new people, exploring new ideas and painting with light, this is why I photograph.

Based in Baltimore, MD. Sean Scheidt explores fashion, portraiture, fine art, and his own personal projects. Originally, a painter he experimented incorporating photographic ideas within his paintings. He considers a photograph a stage where he can set his ideas. Sean also sees a relationship beyond the photograph itself and the viewer, he wants to show the conversation between the photographer and the subject. His most recent work Scheidt has been presenting his work in a before and after set-up. Manipulation of the model is key to his most recent work. The isolation of the model in front of a plain background gives the viewer a focus on the manipulation.


Chris March: Fashion Photographer

There’s a constant question whether to capture or to create. Capturing is natural, raw, static, and truthful. Creating is fun and mystical with endless possibilities. Endless combinations of the two exist.

Based in Baltimore, MD. A self-taught photographer and found his way in with assisting multiple talented photographers. Using his understanding in both the technical aspect and business side of photography March went on his own way to seek larger jobs and continue his professional career in photography. Chris doesn't limit himself with what he does. His work consists of a variety of fashion, portraiture, lifestyle, and location shoots. His style can be very sharp/clean, but also gritty. March is another good example of a photographer who has a strong eye for angles and points of views.

As reflected in her art, her history plays and incredible influence on Laretta’s vision. She sees beauty in unlikely places. As a woman who wears her emotions on her sleeve, her mind’s eye sees each project as a very personal journey.

Based in Atlanta, GA. Laretta Houston is a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle editorial photographer. She also seeks work in NYC, Miami, and Chicago. Houston's beauty portfolio focuses on close-ups, color, or the item/product. Recently, Houston has been experimenting with patterns and textures in her fashion portfolio. Depending on the subject matter and the styling of the model, Laretta uses plain studio backgrounds to focus on the model, but also uses location to add more to the model. Looking through Laretta's portfolio I've observed that her style of photographing is very bold. She has a strong eye for angles and certain points of views. I admire her eye in capturing the model. She is not only showing off the fashion, but also the model's character. Houston photographs a certain look, expression, and pose in the right way. Aside from her beauty and fashion work, she also photographs lifestyle and celebrities. Houston's lifestyle portfolio is much more laid back and simple, but she still presents her bold style of photographing.
