Feel, Capture & Share™
Images can spark your imagination, give you hope, and tug at your emotions. Through photos you can feel the warm sand between your toes, the salty miss of the crashing waves, the refreshing cold of the rivers and streams. You can hear the bang of the fireworks, the rev of the engines, and the deafening silence of the deep seas. You can feel the satisfaction of victory, the agony of defeat, and the inner peace of solitary moments.
Welcome to Fotility & Jerry Roxas Photography. We help capture and share what you feel.
I think that emotional content is an image’s most important element, regardless of the photographic technique. Much of the work I see these days lacks the emotional impact to draw a reaction from viewers, or remain in their hearts.Anne Geddes
fo·to (noun) – slang for photo (photograph).
u·til·i·ty (adjective) – useful, especially through being able to perform several functions; beneficial.
Whether it’s ancient pyramids, colonial style homes, modern skyscrapers, or buildings long since abandoned and nearly forgotten… architecture tells us a wonderful story of where we’ve been.
Black & Whites.
Taking it back to where it all started. Not only are black and white photos a nod to to the beginning of photography, but they can also be a powerful tool to creative expression.
Adding a little color to a black and white photo is a creative technique to add a little power and punch to an image. It lets in the beauty of the whole image, but focuses the attention and message on the primary subject.
Composites & Headshots.
Professional composite photos are a great way to maintain a consistent brand. With professional composite photos by Jerry Roxas Photography, we’ll make sure all of your composites maintain the same depth, lighting and perspective – ensuring a uniform brand wherever your members composite photos are displayed.
Engagements are a momentous occasion that should be captured and shared with friends and family! Taking photos that reflect true love are some of my favorite photos to take.
Photography has long been the method of choice to record our life’s events… as they provide a tangible connection to moments that are long since gone.
Instagram provided the world with a way to instantly share our favorite meals with our friends, regardless of whether or not they were at the table with us. And thus, the fascination of food porn was born.
At first there were camcorders, then cell phones with cameras, then smartphones that could take short video clips, and now there’s GoPro. Smaller, more powerful, and waterproof to boot, allowing us to capture virtually any moment and make it a permanent memory.
Whether its a promotion, a step from adolescence into young adulthood, or the culmination of your formal education, graduations are rare and momentous occasions!
Landscape photography gives us a view of a pure, unsullied vision of the world that exists but is so often taken for granted or unseen. Whether its a photo of nature or urban settings, it opens our eyes and draws us to that place and moment.
Life moves pretty fast, and sometimes you need to just freeze that moment and remember it always. Lifestyle photography is just that, freezing life’s moments!
This is a fun and creative way of expressing yourself that also lets you collaborate with others. One of the things we love most about light painting is that the end result is always different…no two images are ever the same!
One of the more challenging types of photos to take, as you are capturing more than just a single moment in time… long shutter photography takes a tremendous amount of patience, but the end result is so worth it.
People watching without all the motion, noise and activity. Good portraits can tell you much about a person, their demeanor, what they’re feeling, and sometimes even what they believe in.
Product shoots are fun because you never know what you’re going to get! These shoots really challenge us as photographers because we have to create a composition that makes the product as enticing as possible to those who see it.
Often considered a subset of landscape photography, the images are powerful and inspiring enough to demand their own artistic category and following. The vast and mystifying oceans truly represent a whole other world.
Fast paced, non-stop, and in the moment. A good sports photo can put you on the field, tasting the victory and feeling the pain, regardless of whether or not the subject is professional or amateur.
This is a relatively broad category of photography, as it can cover anything from street art and performers, to farmers markets and artistic expressions of metropolitan skylines. We love this category though, because it demonstrates that there is beauty virtually everywhere!
Nothing is photographed more, which is probably one of the reasons why they call it the golden hour. One of the greatest things about sunsets is that you have a chance to shoot them literally every day (well, almost, depending on where you live)!
Weddings are a magical, once in a lifetime moment that should be captured and treasured forever. As a photographer, I’m blessed to witness many wedding ceremonies!
An amazing way to illustrate who we share this world with, providing us with a brief glimpse of what its like when mankind was and is not around.
If digital images are great, then live action videos are even more amazing! Nowadays, there’s so much you can do creatively with video, such as capture candid moments as they happen, memorialize special moments forever, and even extract still images from your video!
Drones & Aerial Footage.
Drones represent a new level of art, giving photographers access to angles and shots that were previously unattainable. Relatively new and in the process of being regulated, for the most part drone photography is still uncharted waters.
