I'm Tyler May.
Growing up I didn’t have a whole lot to do and didn’t know a whole lot of people. But at some point during elementary school I started playing with cameras and making videos. This quickly turned into a love for storytelling through capturing photos and videos. Since then I've kept motivated and continued creating while traveling and sharing the stories of those around me along the way.
I take a more timeless approach to photography and videography. I believe that photos should reflect the feeling of the moments they capture. This means that I'm not one to nitpick trying to perfectly pose people into positions that aren't all that natural. Instead, I'm one who likes to create comfortable environments for people to be able to be themselves and laugh at the weirdness of life and being "on-camera." Ultimately, I’m a digital storyteller trying to encourage empathy any way I can, sharing the experiences of those around me and those whose voices might typically go unheard.
Even though I'm all about art, composition, and constantly striving to be better creatively, I still love to have a lot of fun along the way! During shoots I'm always cracking jokes, though mostly just for my own enjoyment so they might not be that good. I like to create an easy-going atmosphere where people can feel comfortable despite how uncomfortable taking photos tends to make people. So if you want to have a good time while also getting professional, great looking, and meaningful photos or videos for your family, band, wedding, or even just for yourself, contact me! I do pretty much everything. Would love to hear from you!
Previously worked with companies like Patreon, Rose Design, Vartan, and 321 Growth Academy; non-profits like To Write Love On Her Arms, Liberty in North Korea, This Star Won’t Go Out, and Life Light; bands like Gangstagrass, Judah And The Lion, Cyrus Youngman And The Kingfishers, Tyson Motsenbocker, Motherfolk, and Danielle Ate The Sandwich. I always enjoy working with bands and musicians filming and photographing live shows, working on interior design and product shoots, and doing weddings, engagements, proposals, and portrait sessions of any kind!
