RITTERBIN PHOTOGRAPHY

I'm working on a long term personal project called Boston Cornerstones. Cornerstones are found, photographed, and mapped by neighborhood and year. I create time collages (one perspective with multiple images blended into one later) with contextual essays of select cornerstones. The goal is to begin telling a wide ranging comprehensive story of Boston with the time collages serving artistic documents. Check progress at www.bostoncornerstones.com and submit your own cornerstones as well.

When shooting commercially, still images or video, I respectfully and creatively approach a client's narrative needs in order to capture not only the "sure thing" necessities but also unscripted and unpredictable moments.

Photography Specialties: Annual Reports; Corporate; Education; Editorial; Events; Politics; Teaching; Natural and professionally lit environmental portraits; Light-hearted, quirky, and touching photography; Efficient and professionally lit group shots in tight spaces; Giving back to others and my community through photography.

Video Specialties: Interview / B Roll pieces.

My Approach: Thinking on my feet and moving fast but not letting anyone see me sweat; Skilled fly on the wall or take control leader depending on situation; Forging relaxed and comfortable relationship with subjects; Clear communication letting nothing slip through the cracks; Listening to clients; Coming prepared; using the right gear but as little of it as possible.
