I’m just back from a little mid week holiday to the west coast of Ireland with great food, great surroundings and great company. I was there with my friends, Richard Torrens and Shelley Garrett, creators of Ten21 Photography. They are some of the most talented new photographers I have met recently. I have been lucky enough to have used their services for photographing some of my own art work (installation pieces) and they can transfer their skills to most subject matters and situations. From art photography to portfolio images they are very skilled visual artists themselves. Their main revenue currently is weddings, but these are no ordinary wedding pictures. Casual shots and candid camera style they catch the feel of the day, the atmosphere, the happiness of the couple and most of all, the couples personalities. As they say in their website “We are young, we are creative and we love our job”.
What I am most impressed by is their ability to turn something they as a couple love, into a blossoming business in these difficult economic times. Photography is an incredible art that we, as subjects are involved in and can participate with. My hat is off to Rick and Shelley for their success, and for the beauty that they have seen in the world and recorded for everyone else to share in.
