About Us

Hi, my name is Durwin Randle, I’m a local photographer & videographer in Houston, Texas.

Who am I?

I’m a father of three (2 girls and 1 boy) with five grandchildren (3 girls & 2 boys), 1 sister and 1 brother. On the other hand, if we look at my entire family (church, sports, social, photography, etc.), I have 10+ kids and enough brothers & sisters for both of us.

So, why did I become a photographer?

I purchased my first DSLR in 2005 to take family photos. In 2010 I begin my learning curve as a professional photographer because I enjoy taking pictures. In 2011 I created my first photo video for my mother who passed away. In 2013 I bumped into several married couples that but didn’t like their pictures. In 2014 I photographed my first wedding and in 2017 I recorded my first wedding.

What do I do with the skill I've developed?

Now a days I have fun photographing & recording those special moments

  1. for Couples getting married.
  2. for Entrepreneurs who want to share their personal brand.
  3. for Family Portraits, which is the reason I bought my first DSLR.
  4. for Graduating candidates because you only get to graduate one.

Now that I’ve explained our “Why & How,” I guess I can tell you a little bit about our style. But if you’ve seen enough & you’re ready, send us an email or give us a call and let’s chat about your special moment.

What is our style?

We specialize in a journalistic style that captures those candid, casual and posed moments in natural lighting. But what’s the difference in our “Photojournalism” style & the different styles photographers offer? Let me explain.

  • Photojournalism
  • Candid
  • Casual
  • Posed
  • Natural Lighting

Photojournalism is a little different because this is the person who takes an alternative approach and captures spontaneous moments to emphasize emotions in order to tell a story. You will see this type of photographer shooting weddings and portraits.

A Candid Photograph is captured through motion mostly, without creating a posed appearance. An excellent way to capture the true emotion of a family having or an event such as a wedding, sports, family reunion or church.
A Casual Photograph is normally done in a natural environment. They might look as if the subject is just relaxing next to a brick wall or walking down the beach. This is perfect for portraits (family, individual, kids).
A Posed Photograph is more intentional in its composition, creating a formal artifact of an event to remember. This is the ideal pose for a lot of portraits (bridal session, engagement session, senior portraits, family portraits, maternity portraits and corporate head-shots).

Natural Lighting is the process of taking photographs using the natural scenery (the beach, park, sky, urban area, etc.). Natural lighting can be indoors/outdoors, during the day or at night. If you’re pictures or not being taken in a studio, most likely your photographer is shooting in natural lighting.
