About the photography of Paul Haberstroh. The images here are from a hobby turned profession. For the story on how I became a full time photographer, please read The Iguana on Aruba that started it all.
Most of the images here were created with various types of film, then scanned from the negative, slide, or a print. Some are from digital cameras, and some are from my iPhone.
Living in Colorado at the time helped contribute to my success. Colorado provided some of the most stunning backdrops and locations for a wedding. Making a living by going to a big party and doing something you love was an amazing experience. I was blessed to be part of hundreds of important life events. I met many wonderful people and traveled to fabulous venues.
Photography is back to a hobby for me as I have returned to my other calling, teaching. With the quality of the cameras that are now in a smartphone, much of my recent work is created with a device that fits in your pocket. While there are limitations with the fixed lens and lack of exposure controls, the best camera is the one you have with you.
While the image below cannot compete with one from a professional DSLR or mirrorless, I did not have a professional DSLR or mirrorless with me when I saw this vintage Packard hood ornament against a fabulous blue sky.
