Tyler Stableford, a Colorado based fine art photographer, recently spent several months traveling through the United States working in collaboration with Canon on a portrait project titled The Farmers. In the seven minute long, Canon produced video, below, you’re invited to follow Stableford as he takes you behind the scenes of on one of his photoshoots, offering his insights and wisdom on how he goes about taking powerful and artistic portraits of real world subjects.

“Even if we’re in a beautiful area, a person’s face is so important to me, I’m always thinking ‘How shallow can I bring this depth of field,’ because I want the viewer to connect immediately and intimately to the subject and the subject’s face and eyes.”

The clip was made as a promo for Canon, so you’ll also be able to see the Canon W8400 large format printer at work. You also be treated to a look inside Stableford’s gear bag which is home to a Canon 1Dx, Canon 5D Mark III, and a Canon 1D C. (Anyone else experiencing some gear envy about now?)

    Great behind the scenes, and I can’t think of a better way to advertise your products… kudos Canon, you nailed it.
