Portrait photography arguably depends most on the art of being unobtrusive. Award-winning photographer Devin Card learned this more than 12 years ago, when his photographic adventures across the globe taught him to adopt a more naturalistic approach to his craft that yielded stunning images from moments he allowed to unfold organically. Today, Devin continues to employ the lessons of his travels, blending into the background at weddings and other celebratory events, which often puts his subjects so much at ease they almost forget a camera is present. His uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time for a shot has not gone unnoticed by former clients, who praise his work for showing off “many different personalities” and “capturing a story” worth remembering.
Though he specializes in portraiture and wedding photography, Devin also lends his skills to businesses and animals looking to update their online dating profiles. When he isn’t crouching behind chair aisles and tiered cakes to snap creative photos at weddings, Devin travels throughout central Victoria for on-location shoots. Some of his favourite photogenic locations include the flowery gardens of Beacon Hill Park, the lively streets of downtown, and Ogden Point Breakwater, whose famously shy lighthouse blushes red in the background of sunset shots.
