This portrait of Teslyn from my Alice in Wonderland Series was accepted into the Vogue Italia archive this week. It is such a privileged to have one of my photos reviewed by one of their editors and included among many other great images. Vogue, which means “in style” in French, is known as one of the premiere fashion and lifestyle magazines.  Having Vogue attached to you, if you are in the fashion or modeling industry in any capacity, is a pretty big deal.  I’m just privileged to be able to work with so many wonderful people in and out of the modeling industry. I only succeed because of all of you that have helped. You have truly played a bigger part than you probably think. Thank you.

When this image was shown to Teslyn, this is what she had to say,

“Is that really me? No one at school will believe this, I have to call Travis. This is so cool!”

Together, Teslyn and I have worked together on the Alice  in Wonderland series, a vintage mood enriched room in the woods and innocent portraits that capture the essence of a seven-year old. As the new year turns, Teslyn and I will be working on a high fashion photoshoot with an editorial dress that she was chosen to model, plus many more unique projects planned in the very near future including Red Riding Hood.

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.
