About Taylor Boone: “I’m interested in content and not so much the technical side of photography,” I came from the film world and stopped taking pictures when digital first appeared. I felt a large disconnect between the romance of film, dark room to a digital instant view, adjusting the image on your computer. I have an addiction to photos and within a short time, I picked up a digital camera applied my film knowledge, my artistic voice and most importantly to my work, my connection with the subject. This was key in finding my voice. I have owned 6 studios in 3 different states and the greatest lesson I learned in all of this was my voice as an artist working with my subject. This is a hidden gem and when discovered the landscape for your work changes. Irving Penn, Herb Ritts, Ruth Bernard, Lillian Bassman, and Richard Avedon have been the greatest influence in my work. Holding onto your voice, vision and creative heart is key to building a business, and body of work. I am currently touring the US, Cuba, and Paris in 2018 photography women (a few men) and sharing their story. Most of these sessions are not an ideal situation and often I only have 10 to 15 minutes with my subject. I have a skill at hacking tight spaces (hallways, alleys, bathrooms, closets) and transforming them to work for the shoot and also for the subject. My style and my gift at putting someone at easy have allowed for this work to take place at such a pace. All of this takes charisma, and confidence to set the subject at ease in minutes and a conviction of an artist's voice. I love teaching this and most importantly watching someone discovery their artistic voice and standing out of the crowd. From editing, image selection, website, marketing, social media I teach how "Your Voice" matters most! Photographer, Speaker, Author, Teacher, Coach all leads to a beautiful road watching others become a successful artist and making this world more beautiful being authentic to their talent!
