Design Aglow's Wedding Week 2015: Meet Geoff Duncan

Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and how you got started in photography.
I live in Austin, TX and first picked up a camera when I was in college on a trip to Ethiopia in the summer of 2008. There was something about capturing a moment in time that just wouldn't let me go. Up until that point I had been an aspiring musician, so I started shooting my friends and live music until eventually I began shooting weddings.



How do you describe your style?
It's hard to describe my style, but my goal has always been to produce creative and timeless images for my clients.



What or who really inspires you?
I watch a lot of movies in the theater, and my favorite director is Wes Anderson. I try to surround myself with other creatives outside of the wedding world in order to draw inspiration from other industries.



What are your top 3 tips for photographing weddings?
My top 3 tips for photographing weddings:
1) Connect with your clients on a personal level to help draw out their personalities in the photographs.
2) Anticipate moments before they happen.
3) Treat each wedding as if it's the only wedding you will shoot all year.

I am beyond grateful I get to photograph intimate destination weddings and elopements all over the world. Besides traveling for photography work, exploring new places with my husband has become a big part of our marriage and something we want to continue for the rest of our lives. My husband’s grandparents are our biggest idols. They have spent over 50 years married, traveling the world together, continuing to explore new places together. Their passion for traveling has led them to occasionally taking their entire family on vacation, most often to an exotic beach of their choice; a tradition we hope to be able continue one day in their honor.

From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.

My business goals have changed a lot over the last few years. This year, my hope is to work on a handful of commercial projects with companies I believe in, and to carve out more time to work on personal projects. Both are important, but I believe growth and your creative voice is developed when you let your imagination run free without the constraints of it being “work.”
