Behind the Scenes with Tyler Stableford

My new go-to is the Canon R5 camera and RF lenses, with Sandisk CFexpress cards. It’s an incredibly agile and fast system for both video and stills.

A great picture grabs you before you even know that you are hooked. This kind of rare image involves sculpting light and shadow to create emotion; and it requires a powerful connection to your subject. I am always sure to include background layers in my photos to create a sense of strong storytelling, from the foreground subject to the landscape or other background elements that complete the scene.

Herb Ritts and Ragnar Axelsson have been my two biggest influences. They are wildly different in style. I adore Herb’s use of light, shadow and form. Ragnar captures the human experience in dramatic landscapes. I love combining these kinds of powerful elements in my imagery.
