Hi, I'm Larry
As a professional photographer and proud member of the Professional Photographers of America, I am dedicated to capturing the essence of time in my photographs. I firmly believe that a photograph can transcend time and provide a glimpse into a moment that will never be repeated. It is a profound feeling to know that my clients and their families will cherish the photographs I capture for generations to come.
My journey as a photographer began when I was a child. I was always fascinated by mechanical and electronic devices, and my father's high-end Polaroid camera sparked my love for photography. I enjoyed learning about how the cameras worked almost as much as I enjoyed taking photos. I was always taking things apart, but I wasn't always successful in putting them back together, and unfortunately, my father's camera was one of the casualties. However, my parents recognized my love for photography and bought me a Kodak 110mm camera for my eighth birthday.
I upgraded to a Canon 35mm when I was thirteen and had it until I was seventeen, when someone stole it. I never lost my love for photography. As soon as I had the money, I replaced my stolen camera and returned to taking photos.
However, photography was not a viable career choice back then. It was an impossible dream for me at that time in my life. So, I spent over twenty years in the radio industry. Fortunately, my work allowed me to travel to many European and Asian countries and all over the USA, taking photos along the way. I have many landscape and street photos on stock image sites, which I turned into a business ICON Photography KC in 2007.
As a professional photographer, I specialize in natural light photography. I believe that natural light provides the most beautiful and authentic results, and nothing can compare to the sun when it comes to creating the perfect shot. It can have its challenges, but that is what makes it fun, and when you want the best light possible, nothing can beat out the sun.
I take great pride in my work and approach each photography session with a deep sense of commitment and passion. For me, photography is an art, and it takes time. I understand that not everyone is a model; clients require time to relax and become comfortable. I take the time to understand my client's needs and desires and work closely with them to create truly Iconic, unique, and memorable photographs.
As a professional photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of clients, and each session is a new experience for me. I approach each session with a sense of curiosity and a desire to capture something special. I take great care to ensure that the photographs I create are a true reflection of my clients and their personalities.
In addition to my natural light photography, I also offer both in-studio and on-location indoor photography. I understand that each client has unique needs, and am committed to delivering. I strive to uphold the highest standards of excellence in the field of photography.
