Alumni Profile: David Butler

David Butler graduated from the NESOP Professional Photography Program in 2008 and has spent the last 3 years based in Phoenix, AZ working as the Brand Photographer for skin care company philosophy.

In this role, David is responsible for all of their advertising images ranging from in-store display ads seen in Macy’s, Nordstrom and Sephora, to Magazine ads seen in Vogue, InStyle, People and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as any digital advertising.

“Attending NESOP was one of those critical life changing decisions for me, I am sure I am not the only graduate that feels this way.  I have been working night and day to make my dream come true since the second I enrolled at NESOP, and I have never really stopped working (luckily). There are many truly powerful forms of art, and I believe photography is up there with the most efficient mediums that communicate a message, story, emotion, and even sound and smell sometimes.   I am amazed and inspired everyday by the possibilities and potential one person and one camera contain.”

Vintage Fashion, Romantic Feel

Jennifer Keany – Second Year, Term 3 Work

www. Jen-Rose.com

The black and white image was shot at F/2.8 @1/6400s ISO 400 & converted to B&W in post production.

I was inspired by photographs I saw by my favorite photographer, Lara Jade. Her images had a very soft, romantic, vintage feel that appealed to me for this shoot.

The diptych : Full body was shot at f/2.8 @ 1/100s ISO 640; Close up was shot at f/2.8 @ 1/40s ISO 400

Each image was shot digitally with my Nikon D700 & 24-70mm f/2.8 lens without a tripod. After which I used Photoshop for my retouching needs.

The color single image was shot at f/2.8 @ 1/800s ISO 400

My goal after graduation is specializing in Advertising and Fashion photography.

Art Delicious – Food Inspired Photography

1. What was your motivation for this project/these images?

My motivation is always images in food magazines that make me not only want to eat the food, but appreciate the beauty of it even in its natural or less-than-perfect state.

2. Describe your technique for making these images. (film or digital, camera used, settings and ISO, tripod or none, alternative process(es), etc.)

I shot all these with my Nikon D300 dSLR. I always use an ISO of 200 or lower when shooting with Pro-foto powerpacks. I generally use a tripod and shoot directly to the computer. Finding the best lighting to accentuate texture and color is important when shooting food.

3. What is your intention behind this work/in making this work?

My intention is to create images that portray food as an art form – both in its natural state as well as after it has been manipulated and combined with other ingredients.

4. What response do you hope to get from your viewers?

I want the viewers to find the food appetizing, get inspired to cook something themselves, appreciate that which the earth supplies and connect with what it is they are eating.

5. What other artists or art serve(s) as your inspiration?

Right now, I really enjoy looking at the work of Anna Williams, Andrew Hetherington and Jonny Valiant.
