Vintage Cabinet Card Aficionado Series + Vintage Photos

dp_vintage_logo_letterhead_web Vintage Caninet Cards on Minneapolis Railway Blueprints I love old vintage photos and portraits especially cabinet card portraits. I like cabinet cards because you can they are easy to handle, they usually have the city printed or embossed into them, they carry the photography studio’s logo, and you can be fairly sure that they are dated from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s. I have been collecting cabinet cards for a couple of years which I look through from time to time. I feel like they are being wasted since most are usually stored away in a desk  out of sight. When they are pulled out, only I get to enjoy them so I wanted to share them with others. I did a post like this awhile ago but I felt that they weren’t as interesting to look at in that post. I decided to photograph them in more of a scene format and I hope you find these sets of photographs within photographs  enjoyable to look at.

travis dewitz pines portrait suit thumb web PhotographMy name is Travis Dewitz and I am from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. I love photography. It lightens my heart, fills my soul, and allows me to capture life the way that I see it. I specialize in these three areas of photography; CorporatePortraits, and Youth Modeling. These three areas that I offer fit my strengths and keen precision I have for these art forms. I believe the most important quality of a photograph, as in all art, is to evoke an emotional response. The bold pursuit of chasing the best one yet pushes me to continually evolve my photography vision; with precision, compassion and visual drama. ~ read more about me.

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.
