June AOPC Meeting – Wesley Hitt
June 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
Wesley Hitt always seems to be in motion. He’s known for his action photography, whether it’s for professional sports, college sports, or corporate clients. As a professional photographer for 40 years, he’s photographed the famous – U.S. presidents, Senators, Actors, and CEOs – and the infamous, like farmers, factory workers, and workers like us all.
“People are more comfortable in front of the camera when they can move and when you give them something to think about. I consider myself a photographer of people in action.”
When not shooting for clients, he has stayed self-motivated throughout his career with his personal work. “My business photography is always so busy. I realized years ago that when I am out shooting for myself, I am drawn to the quiet and simple. The beauty of light. The beauty of place. I want the viewer to feel that they are there experiencing the moment.” A famous photographer once said, “a great photograph, you should be able to sit in”, that’s my goal for the viewer.
