Dewitz Photography’s 2014 in Review

January 1, 2015 Travis Dewitz

2014 was an incredible year. It was extremely busy and filled with many new and exciting offerings. I was privileged to be a speaker at The Railroad Photography and Art Conference in Chicago last May. The release of Blaze Orange last fall was filled with many new experiences as I stepped into the book publishing world. With the new book came countless interviews and a TV appearance in Milwaukee. The end of 2014 included a group photo installation at The Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, New Jersey. I can’t even come close to listing everything but I want to touch on as many of my highlights as I can to share with you. I will start with a few highlights and then my top 5’s posts in multiple categories including views, Facebook likes, comments, and personal favorites and I than I will end with a few odd and ends from last year.


 

Brand New for 2014 are my Custom and Handmade Cabinet Cards.

One of the Biggest Events in 2014 was the release of my book, Blaze Orange – Whitetail Deer Hunting in Wisconsin.

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.
