Winn Fuqua: “A little about myself ...”
“25 years in advertising photography has allowed me to work with the top creatives across the country, collaborating and helping find solutions to the most challenging problems. You can boil it down to, ‘I work on creative assignments that involve people and places around the US.’ My style is, straightforward, classic, true, and straight from the camera.
“My greatest talent is to get people to relax in front of my camera very quickly. After shooting for over two decades I can handle any technical assignment you can throw at me. You tell me what you need and when you need it and I’ll work my tail off to make it happen. I once heard that a photographer’s job description is ‘problem solver.’ I would have to agree 100%.
“Personally, I’m just an average guy who’s into classic rock (Tom Petty, The Eagles), a little country (Big & Rich, Willie Nelson), sailing on the ocean, drinking margaritas and taking pictures before sunrise.
“Rounding things out, I’m an award winning photographer, tech junkie, Nikon and Apple loyalist and customer service guru. I’ve been married for over twenty-six years (yes to the same wonderful woman) and I’m a native Texan. I donate my time to Habitat, The United Way of Dallas and Temple Emanu-El.”
