In Capable Hands Standing Juggling on Mabel Tainter Theater Stage

Feature 5 | Selection of Five Images From my Latest Environmental Portrait Shoot

This Feature 5 is of the comedy juggling duo In Capable Hands made up of husband and wife team, Steve Russell and Kobi Shaw. I photographed them last year but the recent news of Kobi’s recent TV appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show spark my memory of this post waiting to be put together, one of many. This portrait session was for a new revamp of their commercial advertising photos used across all of their media platforms from websites to banners. Most of the photography was taken at the Mabel Tainter Theater in Menomonie, Wisconsin which is an amazing place. This theater was recently on CNN‘s 15 of the world’s most spectacular theaters list.

travis dewitz pines portrait suit thumb web PhotographAs an established and versatile photographer I work in many genres of photography. Environmental Portraiture allows me to connect my genuine curiosity of my subject into a visual timeless story through the creation of their  portrait. Working with the naivety and quiet beauty of people fascinates me as I engage in the essence of who they are and their true sense of identity. I photograph the emotion and personality in their everyday being through deliberate details and natural flair. My yearning is to naturally engage you doing what you love and the essence of who you really are.

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.
