Hi. My name is Lance Sherwood.
I am a film photographer. I love capturing moments. I have found that each event or celebration is built of much smaller moments. Whether it's saying "I do" or the sweet embrace of a loved one, all of those small glimmers make up one day. I want to capture those moments and I want to ensure those moments endure lifetimes. "Photographer" is a great title, but I think of myself as more of a documentarian. Or better yet, a storyteller. Let me walk beside you and tell your story.
Film photography is the part that confuses most. But I have fallen in love with the analog process. So much so that I shoot exclusively in this medium. I have built a small, but formidable darkroom and can tell you all the differences between XTOL and HC-110 (I know, I may be a little obsessive). There is just something about the smell of chemicals, the look of natural light, and holding a physical negative at the end of the process. I can go on and on about the benefits of film, stop me if I do, but the most important thing to remember is: this is not some hobby, but my great passion. My passion flows through my work and is the signature present in every picture I take.
I love Jesus. I am a passionate person and I am founded on this one thing.
My little family is freaking the cutest. Well at least I think so! I am married to a lovely lady named Chelsea. We have a great dane pup named Lois. And we just welcomed our first baby girl, Ellie, into the world. I have already begun drowning the world with adorable photos #sorrynotsorry.
I love people. I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and creating relationships. One thing I love about photography is that it connects you in a way that would not be possible without a camera. It gives me an opportunity to share in those intimate moments and to capture genuine emotion. I can't wait to hear your story and would love the opportunity to capture your life on film.
