Now that I have fully admitted to stalking Jose Villa on a daily basis, I thought I should tell you WHY I love him so. It's that there are very few people on this planet that can capture a perfect wedding, a perfect detail, a perfect moment...with such clarity. His photographs are so far from your standard wedding photojournalism fare. They are art. Gorgeous works of art that I can pick out of a stack of thousands any day of the week. And well, aparently, I'm not the only one to fall head over heels for Jose and his unique photography style. Because guess what, kids. He's gone and written a book all about it.
Tucked inside the gorgeous cover you'll get to read all about Jose's secrets for "bringing a stylized sense of composition, lighting, posing, and most important, design, to your images, while still keeping them organic and narrative." You'll learn how he encourages his subjects to be at their most natural and how he gets the images right in-camera rather than needing heavy postproduction. And that's just the tip of the iceberg people.
This book is kind of like a backstage pass to all things Jose. With a heavy hand of beauty, style and pure eye candy to go along with it. And we're giving one away!
Just leave a comment with the words "JOSE VILLA FAN CLUB" below and we'll choose a random winner.
For those of you that have to get your hands on it now, you can pre-order a copy right here. He'll even sign it so you can consider yourself an official member of the Jose Villa fan club. I myself...am the president.
