My name is Emma Simkins, a visual communications major at BYU-Idaho. I am applying for a photography position at your company.I have been doing photography for 3 years and have extensive knowledge on most genres of photography. I am also very versatile on my editing knowledge. I was trained in camera raw and Photoshop, but have since been taught in many adobe programs (Lightroom, Illustrator, InDesign etc..). I have capability to do some basic graphic design projects along with my photography.
Because these are all skills apart of my major, I have great opportunities to work with some of the best in their field and get trained by them. Besides all of my knowledge, this is my passion, when I am passionate about something, you have not met a harder working person. I constantly try to come up with new and innovative ways to create my work and make it something people stop to see and will remember. I want my work to stand out from everyone else’s they see.
I bring a good and fun spirit to all work environments and have a very productive vibe about me. I have been thanked by many employers for the energy i bring to the workplace.
Is there a time we can interview and discuss the job? I can bring more of my work, I have some books and an online portfolio I will bring.
My Top Pics
This semester has been really cool with all of the different opportunities to learn and expand my view on what I can accomplish shooting. I have better learned what my style is and how to go about achieving what I want. I love love love portraits. My end goal is thr journalistic rout and take piictures what inspire people and show raw emotion. I want to give people a voice that dont have one. But I also really like fashion and all of the cool vibes that gives off. Out of the portrait world, I really like fine art. I especially like macro out of that, and more abstract rout.
Womans High Fashion
This shoot is one of my favorites! I took these at the Venue in Rigby, which has killer natural light. All of the wedding photos and most of the ones of hayley and Markehl are also natural light But the venue also has great background and a cool variety of modern looks. From the wall with the exposing brick to the whole brick wall, to the white wall. For the other light sources, I used a strobe light with soft boxes. And for the bubble stations, I used strobes with two different colored gels and a bubble machine.
Men in the fashion world
I loved shooting these guys! They all gave out something so cool and unique to the station they were at. I loved using the natural light on the groom to give him that soft, light feeling. And then the two different colored gels on the bubble station really gave them a cool, fun feeling and its something so unique. And for everyone else, we used strobes to light them up. It just goes to show how much a background and an outfit can make really different, but really cool vibes.
Beautiful People Everywhere.
For this shoot, I was taking pictures of couples in all different styles. I had everything from wedding to bubbles to high fashion, and it was a blast! On the wedding photos I used all natural light, with a little help from a reflector. I love this light because it is so soft and matches the vibe of the image to a T. Also, huge thanks to the Venue in Rigby for letting us use their beautiful facility and Harts bu Laneige for lending us the dress. For the bubble station, we used two different colored gels and a bubble machine, which made for such a cool vibe! For the rest of them I used an auxiliary light with a soft box.
