Behind-the-scenes (BTS) stories are the ultimate exercise in self-promotion. They challenge a photographer to take their skills they use on a daily basis making other people's products and services look great and apply it to themselves.
Every week, we'll showcase one of our member's BTS stories. These stories might showcase the attention to detail that a photographer gives to their client or a tool to convey their own personality and confidence — both of these traits are a must when dealing with agencies and clients. The stories can also show the vast amount of time and preparation that go into producing a large shoot.
This week's BTS showcase: Adrian Mueller
Adrian Mueller grew up in Lucerne, Switzerland and initially studied architectural engineering. He was drawn to photography because of the similarities in both fields: clean lines, concise structures and how light reflects off surfaces. Time in Japan further influenced his creative approach through the concepts of craftsmanship, simplicity and reducing everything to its essence. In contrast to his precise still life work, Adrian's aim with his food and location photography is to create images that connect with a viewers' personal memories. He hopes that someone looking at his photographs will be moved to pause and remember a certain smell, taste or experience.
