Geoff Duncan

Today we are cruising down Interstate 35 to meet Austin based photographer Geoff Duncan. Geoff captures moments in a unique style all his own   He believes there is always room to improve and is constantly looking to push himself. Today he shares tales of his world travels and more. 

Heirloom: Do you have any morning rituals or things you do to get ready for a long day of editing or shooting?

Geoff:When I wake up in the morning the first thing I do is drink a glass of water, hop in the shower, and pour a cup of a coffee from my Chemed. After that I like to start my day by reading a book on the balcony. On the way to the studio I always swing by Juiceland to get a smoothy for breakfast. 

Heirloom: What do you like to do for fun? 

Geoff: Concerts, riding my bike, disc golf, hiking, camping, traveling the globe.

Heirloom: What intrigues you most about photography?

Geoff: Capturing a moment in time that will never happen again. That is fascinating to me. Also the idea that there is always more to learn and room for improvement. 

Heirloom: Tell us about your journey into photography! Is there a story?

Geoff: During the summer of 2008, leading into my junior year of college I purchased a used camera on Craigslist the day before traveling to Ethiopia with a non-profit. For whatever reason I was instantly hooked and actually read the user manual from cover to cover on the airplane. From that point on in the trip the camera never left my hand and I couldn't wait to get back and share the photos with everyone. Sometime after that I began shooting concerts, local musicians and anyone else that would stand in front of my camera. The first wedding I photographed came in 2010, but before hit the ground running I took 6 months off to travel the world with a friend, which was an incredibly influential time in both my personal and professional life. Eventually I settled down in Austin, TX where I have spent the last 4 years making friends and snapping photos for coolest people on the planet.
