Bill McCullough

Last year we had some friends come to visit from out of state. They brought their wedding photos to show us. Now normally when someone drags out a wedding album, you can expect a half hour’s worth of boring pictures of overlapping rings and cake cutting utensils and such. Mind you, here at Connective Collective we try not to be haters, we like to keep things positive, but let’s face it, most wedding photography is dreadful. Sure, it might be technically “good” photography but the images are usually painfully impersonal and well, generic as heck.  This was most definitely NOT the case with this particular wedding album. As we flipped through the album I was completely blown away. The photographs were taken by Austin, Texas based photographer, Bill McCullough. This was not just great wedding photography, it was amazing photography period. Bold, cinematic shots that put you right in the center of the action, no boring posed photos, you are transported to ground zero of someone’s family celebration.  Just look here at some examples and you’ll get a sense of what I mean. 

Bill has just released a new book called Tone Poem with the help of his wife and partner, Meredith, a letterpress printer and master bookbinder (her website is right here).  The book is limited to 50 copies. Get yours before they’re all gone. Here is a sampling of some of the great images found in the book:

We here at Connective Collective have been sorely neglecting  you, our dear friends in the cyberwebz. For this we somewhat sincerely apologize. As a token of our sort-of-feeling-bad-about-all-of-it, allow us to tickle your eyeballs with some of these lovely images…Isabelle Fexa
