During our first Rebirth Workshops & Retreat (ha folks were not using “Retreat” five years ago 🙂 ) way back in 2010

one of the exercises was to create four images and four images only with our smartphones. No deleting allowed. No post processing.

Afterward we gathered to discuss the images, the purpose behind them, who had photographed what.

Now I had just recently purchased an iPhone and as a photographer this seemed to be a bit of “do not turn to the Dark Side”. No going back now.

As a photographer do we take smartphone images seriously or is this more just for fun? Keep in mind this was early 2010.

So after searching a few iPhone photography apps I stumbled upon Tiffen’s filter app. Man this was cool, a bunch of Tiffen filters all in the iPhone!

I played around, used this filter and that one, had some fun and processed the images I had created during the exercise.

Around this same time a new company in Berlin called Eye’em announced their Eye’em Awards 2010. Hmmm, submit iPhone images for a contest? Seriously?

Ok I did it. I sent in the four images I had created at Rebirth and waited.

I remember the first email from Eye’em stating I had made it onto the shortlist. Then and email saying I was in the top 15! This was going to be displayed in Berlin!

After the exhibit Eye’em created a book with the winning images – http://blog.eyeem.com/2010/10/the-eyeem-mobile-photography-book/

Great to see Eye’em just had their World Tour Exhibit show in New York City last night. Congrats to them, still going strong after five years.

Shown below is the original image followed by the image that was displayed for the exhibit. A large print of the winning print still hangs in my New Orleans apartment.

Two of my favorite images from a recent wedding. Loved how the kids were acting like themselves before the formal portraits.

Kids can be crazy for sure and sometimes the best images with them are the images where you do not interfere, just let it naturally flow.

The cake image is another example though no kids or groom were harmed during the shoot.

Once again it was a privilege to work with the Vietnamese Community and the Prajna Upadaesa Foundation

to photograph His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama while he spoke at the Wang Theatre in Boston.

And once again I worked with a great crew consisting of Kyle Cassidy, Tina Manley, Emanuel Lowi, Phong Doan and Suzan Doan.

Special thanks to the US State Department and His Holiness’ own security team.

Always seems to be a soundtrack in my head. Thought of this song instantly when capturing this image –

“There’s a city in my mind
Come along and take that ride
and it’s all right, baby, it’s all right”

– Road to Nowhere, Talking Heads

Marie and Ken hosted an amazing wedding at Race & Religious in New Orleans.

As I’m just a photographer telling stories with images, the NY Times article on this wedding is much better with words than I am.

Thanks to Marie & Ken for allowing me to photograph their special day

and thanks to Jessica Del Vecchio for helping me with the photography.

Enjoy. – Chris

“I’ve been walking in central park
Singing after dark
People think Im crazy
Ive been stumbling on my feet
Shuffling through the street
Asking people, what’s the matter with you boy?” – The Rolling Stones
