Russell Andrew Spencer is a 28 year-old visionary from Southern California. He has 11 years of experience shooting and editing videos, with 6 years of photography experience. Russell’s video style combines simplicity with vivid images and sometimes feels like you’re in his dream world. His photography would make any photo journalist smile.
our take: A portrait can be a daunting task to shoot because usually your models are beautiful, or interesting, so it’s your task to show the rest of the world exactly that. Then there is a conversation with the model that sometimes evokes a new image that wouldn’t be there with just person standing there. Russell knows how to work with people and it shows. We appreciate his simple, yet powerful approach to his portraits. More of an experience together, rather than a photo OF you.
