You can tell a lot about a person by the way they answer the simple question: Is the glass half full or half empty? When you look at Ty Milford's photography, there's no doubt how he'd answer that question.
Based out of Portland, Oregon, Ty's photography is full of life, vitatlity, joy, and simplicity, which is probably a lot of the reason we love working with him, and why so many people comment on how much they adore his work. Each of his images captures a moment, a ray of sun, the shimmering ocean; there is beauty in everything he chooses to document (including our clothes!). His images just feel so inviting, so comfortable in themselves, like you're walking down an open, empty beach, the sun is low in the sky, and the ocean is beckoning you to dive in. It's all color, playfulness, spontaneousness - all the kinds of things we strive to catch in the lines we create every season.
His website showcases photo after photo of the brighter side of life, where as Ty puts it best, "Black is not a part of my color pallet, and a rainstorm is something that you use as an excuse to steal a kiss under an umbrella."
Here are a few of his best shots he’s captured through the last 5 years for us. Enjoy.
