About Fitz Carlile Photography

The kind of work I do within the wedding photography genre is very distinct  - every image stands on its own as a thoughtful composition  as if from a cinematic art house film or  high-end commercial/editorial shoot. 

I am often described not as a 'wedding photographer' - but instead as an editorial/commercial photographer who shoots weddings. My compositions are often quirky, surprising, different. I always attempt to compose an unexpected point of view.

If you're looking for something different - but timeless - then I'm your guy :) I confidently direct a scene, a pose, a group, the light, the shadow, all of it is built on 30 years of experience behind the lens. I'm obsessed with light, shadow, and geometry - and incorporate it as a character in  your story. These elements create mood, depth, nuance, passion, mystery, contrast and harmony.

I draw  inspiration from Stanley Kubrick,  Emmanuel Lubezki (The Revenant), Conrad Hall (Road to Perdition), Gordon Willis (The Godfather), Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood) and my hero Roger Deakins (Blade Runner 2049). My still photographer heroes include Henri-Cartier Bresson, Slim Aarons, Art Streiber, Annie Leibovitz & Mark Seliger.

I've  traveled around the world in a backpack for 18 months, across America on a motorcycle thrice, I'm a private airplane pilot, military veteran,  former tech executive, retired gymnast, occasional guitarist, sushi lover, amateur disc golf hack.  I'm an Enneagram 7 - spontaneous, curious, optimistic, outgoing and adventurous. I've never lost a game of Air Hockey.
