I will share a few of my 2012 photography highlights below. I would also like to reach out and say Thank You, your support goes a long ways.

www.dewitzphotographycom saw 5X the number of visitors in 2012 than in 2011, 5X. That is a huge increase that I hope I can keep going into 2013. My busiest month saw over 10,500 visits. That is an incredible stat for this type of website. My busiest day saw almost 450 visits.  I will continue to keep fresh high quality images coming to my site along with blog posts about all my latest events, projects, news, photos, reviews, and information. I hope there is a little bit of something to keep you coming back.

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.

    What’s so cool about the top 3 is none are in what anyone would consider great weather, especially the average photographer which is what makes them even better in my mind.
