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

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.

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 […]

RTD Timelapse Video

About a month ago, I was shooting quite a bit of timelapse photography for RTD. Up until last night, the clips were never really put together. Here’s a quick edit… RTD Denver Timelapse from Paul Wedlake on Vimeo. Timelapse photography shot of the public transportation network in Denver, Colorado.

I have been working with RTD lately shooting mainly to bolster up their stock library.  It’s been a lot of fun location scouting, riding the trains and setting up different shoots all over the city.  I also had the opportunity to work with tilt/shift lens which has been fun.  Some of these images were shot […]

RTD Superheros

This was a great project that I did in December.  The pictures are starting to show up in the newspapers and on the buses around town.  The ads feature kids dressed as homemade superheros.  The messages are all about safety, like “You’re not faster than me, and I can’t beat the train!”  The project involved […]

Bud Culp for Moye White

I had the pleasure of photographing Bud for the second time.  He drove Kari Kisch, hair and makeup, and myself all over Denver looking for locations to shoot.  We finally ended up shooting at Civic Center Park for the most important shot.  It looks like such a quite image.  It really wasn’t.  We were able […]

Sherr Puttmann Akins Lamb

When I showed up to shoot for SPAL family law for their new website, a major storm also arrived at the same time.  Having location scouting a week earlier, we had finalized and scheduled where all the portraits would be taken.  Mother Nature conspired against us and a good part of the shoot took place […]

Moye White Portraits

Here are a few more portraits that I did for Moye White.  It was pretty cold out when we shot this last batch so my makeup artist, Kari Kisch, and I prepped everyone at the law firm and took them in groups of 2 to be photographed.  We shot each person in about an hour […]

Seirus Innovations

Ah, my favorite shoot of the year.  I have been shooting for Seirus for five years now.  Every December, we head up into Vail for two or three days to do a combination lifestyle/action shoot.  Seirus uses the images for their catalog, POP, trade show banners, and packaging.  Out of the six models, three of […]
