About SB Graphik
SB Graphik is a personal website of Sebastian Buchanan, a graphics designer/photographer based in Atlanta. Graphic design is one of of the most popular jobs in the modern "gig" economy. Making a name for yourself in this economy is difficult due to the large amount of competition that exists on the market. Key factors in getting people to hire you are good quality work, that stands out and which will earn you a good reputation. In my work, as a photographer, I try to evolve photography to the next level by using things like photography drones during my photo sessions. They give another dimension to the subject that is rarely captured by having just a single camera in the hands of the photographer, on the ground.
Being a graphics designer helps elevate my photography even further. By using some of the techniques from the world of graphics design, I'm able to better satisfy the wants of my customers, and easily fix the rare times that I make mistakes. It's a very interesting and useful thing, knowing both graphics design and photography. During photography gigs, mistakes do happen. I remember one time when recording a wedding, I accidentally caught my high quality photography drone in the background of the first dance photo. It's a bit unprofessional on my part, but like I said, mistakes do happen. Luckily I was able to use my graphic design know-how to correct that mistake while editing photos afterwards. Having multiple skills is highly desirable in this modern economy, and I highly recommend to any photographer, graphics designer, or whatever it is that you are, to always try and improve yourself in order to attract new business.
Photography, graphics design, SUCCESS!
"By mixing good photography with graphics design, you can capture some breathtaking footage of the subject. My company has made some amazing looking nature shots that blur the line between reality and fantasy. By combining actual photos with digital renders, there is no end to what kind of beauty can be created."
Photography has been a hobby of mine since I was very little. Grabbing a camera and playing around with it is actually one of my first memories. Camera wasn't mine of course, it was my fathers, who was also a photographer. He is the one who taught me a lot about photography as I was growing up. I've come a long way since that first camera that I held and now I have lots of professional gear, even high quality photography drones, like I already mentioned. Photography is my first love and I'm thankful for the fact that I've ended up doing photography for a living. There's nothing better when you do something you love for a living. I hope that I can help you achieve your dreams and photograph your event. There is nothing that I love more than working with people to make their vision come true. In my spare time I love going for a stroll in the woods, or on a trip to the beach and take photos of the beauty that nature has to offer.
Doing graphics design is sort of a consequences of me entering the digital age as a photographer back at the start of 2000s. Photoshop is a very powerful tool, and it takes a long time to fully understand all that it can do. Only a small number of people, if any, has actually gotten around to learn everything that Photoshop can do. That's why I love graphics design, because there is always something new to discover. It's not just Photoshop, there are many other tools that are available that can be used to create beautiful graphics and digital art. I try to keep my graphics design and photography separate when I'm offering people my photography services. In my spare time though I combine the two to create fantasy digital pieces, something similar to Digital Blasphemy, which is a huge source of my inspiration.
