I wanted to better my craft. As a photographer I understand lighting and how important it is. When I first saw Philip's wedding films, the first thing that I noticed was his style and how he choses to use light. He never over exposes his highlights just to see the subjects face. He lets the dark be dark and the light be light. It gives you a sense of how it really was on the day of the wedding instead of trying to light up everyones faces. I wanted to learn how to simplify my process from the wedding day, editing, and delivering a cinematic product to my clients. That's why I took the class.
I was born in Redding, Ca in the Northern part of the state. Later I moved to Alabama with family. I started playing guitar after high school. When I caught a break in the music business, I quit my day job and went on the road as a full time musician. I toured for about 11 yrs all over the U.S. and shared the stage with some of the biggest stars in the world. Thanks to music I also met the woman of my dreams who is now my wife. Sara Jo Fountain, is also the mother of my first son William Fountain. We are expecting another baby boy in May 2020. When I retired from touring I wanted to continue making a living doing something I love. I quickly realized that like music, photography was in high demand and I could potentially make a living with it. I now do commercials, documentary, corporate, and wedding films along with lots of different photography. I'm very blessed!
