What might you want to know about me?
i fell in love with photography at 20 yrs old on my first day of photo class at cabrillo college in santa cruz. because i spent my high school years plastering my bedroom walls with pages from elle magazine and harper's bazaar, i assumed i wanted to be a fashion designer or a model. i realized my obsession with supermodels tatjana patitz and stephanie seymour was also an obsession with lighting, scenery, composition, fashion, make up, hair, and their sensuality.
my photos will always be authentic, both in regards to the emotion and finished product. i never ask for fake emotions or overdone photoshop. my goal is to capture sincere joy, and/or the joy that comes from feeling sexy. overall the one thing i cannot seem to sidestep is my desire to hear the viewer say "wow, that's beautiful" as their gut response to an image.
i like being on the production team. i enjoy thinking of ideas, developing concepts, browsing for models, collaborating with the team, shooting our vision, and leading the editing process. if i can't bring something we need to the table, i know a list of people who can.
thanks for browsing my site! i still use the phone (which gives it away that i'm over 30 yrs old) so feel free to call for a chat. instagram will show you some of my personal life: @briechilders
cheers! xo brie
