3Sixty Photography

3SIXTY PHOTOGRAPHY > LIFESTYLE • PORTRAITURE • FASHION • EDITORIAL • COMMERCIAL

 

A great photo makes you want to meet that person, visit that place or eat that food.


Planning, location prep, scouting for light or background, color, mood, etc. are all important considerations.

Portraits to Commercial to Editorial and more...

Because I shoot a wide variety of images, I understand businesses' need to enhance their brand visually. I connect and collaborate with clients to create unique, personal and memorable images. Learning the back-story and pre-planning a photo shoot, as well as being able to capture unpredictable moments result in well-crafted, authentic images.

 Capturing the emotion of the moment.

Off camera lighting. When you need it. Being able to move fast and light and bring just the right selection of gear to get the job done is always a part of planning a successful photoshoot.

What’s in a name?

When I was looking for a memorable name years ago, I was on my way to Tuckerman Ravine to get in a little spring backcountry skiing and I was running names through my head. I happened to remember an old pair of skis I once owned (just a few years back): Head 360′s.

Of course the name has many obvious connotations: unity, wholeness, infinity- those worked for me as well. It needed to be shorter; memorable. That’s it.

Commercial: 20 years bumping up against brand.

After 20 years working as an Art Director/Graphic Designer, I decided to return to my ongoing passion of photography and focus on that exclusively. My passion to capture images ranges from portraiture, commercial, editorial, fashion, landscape and more. I want to take on projects that reflect a strong personal connection with the subject and translate that visually- images that make you want to meet that person, be where that person is and to share the emotion of story.

Everyone has a camera: why 3Sixty?

"Plans are nothing; planning is everything". Dwight D. Eisenhower

It's not the gear. It's the eye. It's the idea... Planning and brainstorming a shoot is important, but also balancing that with the impromptu nature of the creative process. Passion, creativity, commitment, “an eye for light” and collaboration. That’s 3Sixty. Business or personal, both have their own story to tell- from portraiture to images that capture your business brand.

Here comes the sun. Or not.

Natural light is something we are used to seeing and early or late light has a magic all its own. Unfortunately there is weather or dim interior lights that can effect the magic of soft light or light that falls where you want. Off camera lighting (flash/strobe) is something that 3Sixty specializes in when that need arises. It’s all a part of being prepared for the situation- something that can make or break a photoshoot.

Inspiration Gets Personal.

One of my big inspirations was my grandfather, Fred Luetters. When I was growing up, I remember looking over the artwork my grandfather had collected. Much of it was hand colored photography. He had worked as a master colorist for the western landscape photographers, Fred Kiser and Clarence Winter in the early 1900's. My own interest in photography began with a love for landscapes as well (still love it), but portrait work became something I wanted to explore-  people are so amazing to work with- always different, always a new story.

“I would recommend Bruce based on his photography alone, even if we’d never met. But working with him is such a joy. He takes a holistic approach, covering every angle of the brand, the personality, the product and the environment. ...Bruce made the experience fun and exciting, and the results were breathtaking.”
