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

This was the first time a Colorado librarian received the award. I felt really lucky when Library Journal contacted me to shoot a cover and a […]

Colorado Super Lawyers

Photographing attorneys has been the main staple of my business for the last few year.  I seldom photograph them for editorial purposes though.  Colorado Super Lawyers gave me the opportunity to photograph Pamela Robillard Mackey (Kobe Bryant’s lawyer), Heidi Storz and John Moye.

Why don’t I photograph sporting events – because of this guy….

With the Broncos doing so well leading up to the Super Bowl, quite a few people asked me if I ever shoot any of the games.  I usuall say, “no, it’s not really the type of work I do.”  I did shot one game when I was still in college though.  It was one of […]

Joe King – The Fray

I had the pleasure of second row seats last night to a Joe King (from The Fray) concert.  The seats were only four wide though.  He was playing on the new RTD West Rail train from Denver to Golden.  Only 50 people could attend.  After I photographed his performance, he gave me a few minutes […]

Battle of the Strands, Part 2

While shooting for the Battle of the Strands, I road tripped it from Las Vegas to the Valley of the Fire with the 2012 winning team.  The Glam Alliance was a lot of fun to photograph.  Even though I made them hike into the back country with high heels, they toughed it out.  We travels […]

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 […]
