Craig Hadorn, Photographer | Salt Lake City, UT | 1 801 300 2496 | [email protected]
Before I start yakking about myself, let me express my gratitude for your visit to my website. These days, there is far from a shortage of capable photographers out there, and I appreciate the effort you've made to still be here.
I am a lover of good people and good food, and I really enjoy photographing both genres. My goals for the images I create in each are fairly simple: To tell an elegant, human story or to just make you hungry.
Before diving headlong into commercial photography I spent a good chunk of my life working in advertising agencies as an art director. That experience taught me the value of compelling imagery, as well as the awesome power of collaboration. In that role, I also hired commercial photographers, and in retrospect, I probably rode a few of them too hard. Nonetheless, that part of my old job helps me now to better serve clients and deliver images they love.
At the end of the day, I believe most commercial photography assignments become an exercise in artistic problem solving, and that’s totally fine by me. In fact, the inherent challenges seem to really float my boat.
Full Disclosure: I am definitely not a prima donna, but many have affectionately labeled me a "details maniac."
When I'm not shooting or editing images, I'm making another cooking mess in the kitchen, modifying some piece of grip gear, running far-too-distant errands on foot, or happily sweating the production details of my next shoot.
A partial list of clients includes Smithfield Foods, Rocky Mountain Power, Intermountain Healthcare, University of Utah, Faktory, Park City Visitors Bureau, Vault Magazine, The Madeleine Choir School, Riester Advertising, Salt Lake City Corporation, Limestrong Plasters, Cortex Health, Access Development, and Houweling’s Tomatoes.
OK, enough already. I'd much rather hear about what's going on with you. Have a great day. Cheers.
