Welcome to my Blog!

Hello, thank you for taking the time to visit my blog.  Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment. 

I have been practicing commercial photography in Denver since 1995.  Before moving to Colorado, I was working in the Detroit area.  Back in those days, the auto industry was doing pretty good and I got a lot of experience working for the big car studios but my wife and I wanted to try living out west.  We packed up our little cars and moved to the Denver area.  After living in a tent for a month, we found housing and our own niches in the photography world.  That seems like a long time ago, we now have two kids, a dog and a mortgage.

My passion in photography is creating images of people on location.  I love the fast paced challenge of going into different environments and making interesting portraits.  In contrast, I have also come love the slower pace of architectural photography.  There is a different set of challenges and it is more about planning and coming up with a clear strategy. 

Thanks again for visiting, come back often and hopefully I will be faithful to the true spirit of the blog and have interesting images and words to share.  Cheers, Paul Wedlake

I had an editorial shoot up in Breckenridge a couple weeks ago featuring Karen who started her own franchise, Snagglefoot, while commuting back and forth from Colorado to Chicago to finish her MBA.  A lot of air miles were accumulated.  What made this shoot really fun, other than getting up into the mountains, was working […]

A few months ago, I went out on the eastern plains with the purpose to just shoot some new images and have a little fun cruising down the endless dirt roads that see virtually no traffic. What I found was a lot of abandoned housed from the 40’s and 50’s. My friend Pat and I […]

Bassett, Wallace, Selner, & Taylor

They sound like a law firm, but no, they are a dentist office. I shot a series of portraits, architectural office shots and the doctors meeting with their patients. All the material was for their new website at It’s kind of funny, I photograph a lot of people and a large majority tell me […]

Grain silos of the eastern plains of Colorado

I’ve spent a couple of days recently wandering the back roads of eastern Colorado lately with my friend Pat Loehr. Here’s a link to some of his images – Pat’s blog. Avoiding the traffic jams in the mountains, we decided to head east and take random dirt roads that go on forever and don’t seem […]

Bhumi – from the earth

I have been working with Kari Kisch for close to ten years now. She’s done makeup and styling on most of the people I have photographed. She’s also done production, talent scouting, wardrobe and on occasion held my reflector on windy days. She’s been a huge secret to my success while photographing executives. By the […]

Lasers, hot oil & flying shards of metal

I had an interesting time trying to capture photos at Mountainside Medical. The shot list consisted of portraits, facility shot, studio table top, individual machines and fine art shots of the manufacturing processes. To get the last images, my camera was about ten inches away from a laser welder, shoved though a safety hatch where […]
