More about Bud F...

What do you love about your job?
I love telling stories and photography allows me to do that with my own ideas and talent. I enjoy going on photo road trips with only one lens to see what I can capture. Since the majority of my experience was with shooting film where you have to get it right or fail, the new digital cameras make photography more predictable, and fun for both the photographer and the client.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
In my long career, I have shoot car wrecks, police investigations, house fires, court room scenes, criminals, weddings, babies, old couples, winter sports action, high school and college sports, extreme sports, road trips...My lifetime experiences has given me a uniques perspective, but the client usually has the best ideas. So no matter what, theres always going to be great results.
