Bodie | 6th Street Amarillo Senior Photos
I don't photograph a lot of senior guys but I sure am glad Bodie came my way. As an aspiring fashion photographer, he has an eye for creativity so I wanted to make sure that his senior photos were exactly what he envisioned while still capturing his personality. Though he goes to Dumas High School, he spends a lot of time on 6th street in Amarillo (specifically at the 806 coffee shop) with friends. I could tell that he felt comfortable there which is so important during senior photos.
We purused the street, finding spots that we both liked. I have to say - I don't usually shoot on 6th street because it's not necessarily "my style" as a photographer. However, I loved going there with Bodie because it stretched me creatively. While shooting in new (or lesser used) spots, I have to think on the fly. I have to evaluate colors, poses, location, and light all at once with barely any previous experience. That is one of the most rewarding things for me as a photographer.
