These portraits are just a sampling of the many images that Gregory Hancock and I created last year. We had sooo much fun in the studio, with much laughter in between these shots. We developed a cherished friendship through this project, in which I captured his essence. Thank you for being such a wonderful model and friend.
My name is Dietrich Ney, and I am a senior at Zionsville High School. I have only attended Zionsville since September 2016, and attended Brownsburg High School before. After High school I plan to study Music Theory and Composition at the City College of New York.Most of my free time is occupied with either analyzing, writing, or playing music. I have played the viola in an orchestra for over 7 years, and have taught myself guitar, bass, drums, and piano.
My only other experience with getting my picture taken professionally was getting family pictures. I always dreaded them because of my 5 younger siblings always being out of control and making the experience un-enjoyable. Because of this, I was nervous and unsure about getting senior pictures taken. But that was all changed nearly the second I walked in. JJ made the entire experience fun and enjoyable. I have never felt like pictures have captured my personality so well, nor have I ever had pictures taken that I have been proud and excited to show to people. She is the only photographer that I will recommend to people because of how high quality all of her work is, and how fun and stress-free she made senior pictures.
Going into senior pictures I was afraid that I wouldn’t like any of my pictures or that I wouldn’t look as pretty other people in mine. JJ completely extinguished this fear by giving me the best senior pictures I could’ve ever asked for. JJ really has an talent for capturing people at their most beautiful moments. The experience was fun and easy. I loved being diva for a day and cannot wait to come back for more wonderful pictures in the future.
I didn’t think that getting my senior pictures was actually going to be an enjoyable experience but working with JJ was a really good time. She was very encouraging and didn’t really try and frame like I was just another senior. She let me get comfortable and just be myself. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend JJ to anyone!
Friends, it is with such pleasure that I can share that my work is published in Karen Mangia’s new book and website, “Success With Less.” I had the tremendous pleasure of photographing her in her home to illustrate the principles that she holds near and dear to her heart. You will be inspired by her story. Thank you so much, Karen, for allowing me to be a part of this journey with you!!! http://successwithless.net/
