Feature 5 | Selection of Five Images From my Latest Editorial Business Shoot

This Feature 5 is from an editorial photo shoot I did for FirstMerit Bank. FirstMerit Banks publishes a magazine called Meritmatters filled with articles touching on Insights for Business and Life as their tagline states. Every issue contains articles about their own members and how FirstMerit Bank works along side with them to help make their businesses successful. This editorial shoot was for Rine Ridge Farms in Bryant, Wisconsin, about 40 miles northeast of Wausau. Rine Ridge Farms is a family run farm on 1,000 acres. Their main crop is seed potatoes that are used by potato chip companies but they also grow other crops. A new crop for them this year are sugar beets which they hope to market to many of the large dairy farms near them as a good dairy cattle feed in place of corn. I spent part of the day with father and son, Ken and Dan, as they walked me around their farm telling me about what makes them unique in the seed potato market and how their operation works. This father and son team was amazing to work with and they made any my photography ideas and compositions I had in mind work no matter what it took. You can read more about Rine Ridge Farms at the bottom of this post along with seeing a few other my photographs from this editorial shoot.

I. Love. Photography. I love it. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I constantly yearn to show life in a way that hasn’t been seen before, to bring images to people in a fresh and innovative way. My favorite focus in photography, my specialty I guess you would say, is Railroad Photography & Art. Something about the rumbling of these great, big, beautiful machines. The way they shake the earth beneath you as they rumble by, how they invade your chest and you can feel the rumble inside you. The plumes of heat on a hot day represented in a heat wave. Snaking through a western valley, void of trees or any other distracting element. Just the train, by itself, in it’s own inexplicable beauty and power. From the time I was a child, they have captured my imagination. I’ve recently gotten into portraiture a bit, and I want to bring some of my experiences with trains to that arena. To capture the power of a person, the sadness, loneliness, omniscience, pride, love, & carefree spirit in a way that hasn’t been done before. I want people to look at themselves in a photograph I have taken, and see a side of themselves that they think no one else has ever seen. Dewitz Photography is all about capturing a moment in a way that has never been seen before, capturing a beauty that some never knew was even there.
