Photographer Charles Ruggles – Founder of Flint Teen Matters – writes to us :

Flint Teens Matter is a free senior picture project that is targeted to help students affected by the water crisis. It’s hard times for Flint parents and the added cost of pictures is not something they should have to be burden with. The main reason for the project is because it’s time Flint had some good stuff happen and these are the students that will make the decisions to make Flint raise again. I’ve lived in the Flint Area for 39 years and I’m proud to say I’m from Flint. I’m a ‘Flintstone’ in heart and mind.”

We ask Charles why he loves photography :

“I think photography is amazing because you can create a story that can always be revisited and if done well it always carries a memory from the past to the present.”

We had the opportunity to interview Joe from Joe Urbz Media & Photography and here is what he had to say…

1. Why do you like photography ?

Photography gives me a full process of creativity with challenges that embodies technology, art, psychology, and Mother Nature all in one package.

2. What is your favorite type of photography ?

Mother Nature (Landscape/Nature), but high impact Sports is a close second.

3. Share a funny story about your photography…

A few years ago, my mother accompanied us on a trip to the Grand Canyon. She watched lines of photographers with their tripods capturing the canyon sunset, but the monsoon clouds blocked a lot of it. As those fotogs left, she was curious why I did not prepare to leave. I said, “Wait… it’s coming.” After some minutes and the quiet around us returned, the light of the Canyon, with the dark monsoon clouds making the colors richer looked like a live volcano — the sky near the horizon filled with hot reds, oranges and yellows. This blew her away and finally understood why it takes so long to capture surreal scenes by Mother Nature.

4. Share a photography trick or tip…

As much as we get creative with our camera settings and angles, get creative with your tripod as well. It’s designed to be adjustable!

5. What is your favorite/recommended piece of camera or camera equipment ?

Any camera I have at the moment I need one. Sounds cliche, but it holds true. I also truly appreciate a clean lens.

6. Why do you love SmugMug and/or jR Customization?

SmugMug is a great place to create photography portfolios and sales. jR Customization has been awesome to work with and his support through the changes of my website design has been the best I have experienced.

3. Share a funny story about your photography…

One of my favorite animals to photograph is Mountain Goat kids on Mount Evans, Colorado. Sometimes while photographing a herd of them they surround you and are just a few feet away. They make you feel at times that you are part of the herd.

We had the opportunity to interview Larry from LMCampbell Photography and here is what he had to say…

1. Why do you like photography ?

I’m as fascinated as the next guy or girl at how an image can get captured through this little piece of glass and transformed into a beautiful piece of art or an ever-lasting memory.

2. What is your favorite type of photography ?

It’s a toss-up between sports photography (I love to capture that highlight moment in a gem or match, or the emotional response to it) and portraits (I currently have triplets that are seniors in high school, so Seniors seem to get most of my portrait business lately).
