The Faces of New Jersey Project : Paul K Trace

Standard

Paul K TraceI am very proud to introduce you to this extremely talented photographer friend of mine, (Paul Trace). I actually met him today on accident. We had never met face to face before only through phone and email communications. I had just arrived at Red Bank Battlefield and was waiting for my next NJ resident to arrive. While walking up to the river I passed Paul. In passing Paul made a comment about the gear I was carrying. I explained the project I was working on and handed him a card when he replied “CHRIS, I’M PAUL TRACE.”

Our connection first started when his grandson began working for the same company I do. Paul would send me his old Pro Photo Magazines and has given me knowledge that can only come from a photographer with decades of experience. It was actually Paul’s idea for me to change the name of my image from Negatives Revealed to something more personal that my audience can relate to (Chris Spano Photography).

Paul introduced me to his lovely wife and explained that they were at the battlefield for a little walk and to capture images for Stock Photography. I wasn’t going to let Paul walk away without taking a photograph of him. It was truly an honor to put a face to the man who has had such an impact on the way I approach my photography craft.

I would highly reccomend Paul to capture any of your photographic needs. You can find some of his work here……. http://www.pktrace.com

The Faces of New Jersey Project: Katt Wilkins

Katt Wilkins-38

Katt and I met online through the South Jersey Photography Group. Katt has been making photographs since she first picked up her fathers camera in her Elementary School Years. Katt recently started a very inspiring photo project of her own. She takes photos of herself and others to showcase the beauty in everyone, especially those that have been through rough times in their life. Katt lost her sister to a “life-long battle with Muscular Dystrophy and six months later her best friend committed suicide”.

Needless to say, Katt has gone through a lot in a very short amount of time. It takes a lot of courage for her to speak up and not only share her experience with the world but also help others who may be going through similar experiences. You can find Katt and her project here……. https://www.facebook.com/KattWilkinsPhotography
