I hosted an awesome event over the weekend with my friend Sam. It was a great success, to say the least. Our goal was to have 30 photographers, and we hit our mark. The total was 30 photographers, 4 models, 4 lighting setups, and a few people helping out. The most important part is that we had plenty of space to be very comfortable.
As much as I wanted to shoot the models, well, I really couldn’t, I was working. I was trying to help people out individually, park cars, make sure the models did not need anything and well just trying to make sure thing ran smoothly. (between you and I, I have shot most of them before)
This larger events can be a bit tricky to navigate, however having done a fair share in my day, it was not a big deal. People were happy and some wanted to sign up to the next event on the spot. We are organizing something for Halloween. I will have something up on my Workshops Page.
I love hanging out with awesome people, meet Jorge, he is as awesome as it gets. We had an awesome portrait session. Jorge tried to tell me he has never done this before, however, I think he has done this once or twice before.
He is an awesome photographer and an amazing model. We started off taking some headshots and we quickly moved to the stool. I think the stool worked out great.
It’s always great working with such amazing talent.
Here is a video I shot a while back with my friend Natalia, its called one last chance because that is the name of the song. We went out to the beach to make a cool video from the sky and this is what we came up with. There is another one on the works… Check out the behind the scenes video at the bottom of the post.
Once a month we host a cool event we like to call Models & Bottles. We get a few models, and some booze, some cool studio lighting set ups and have a grand ol time. Its a good place to mingle, exchange cards and ideas and talk shop.
Here is one more from Zulisa, I did this post a few days ago, but I just found this image going through the galleries. What can I say she is just amazing. I had such a great time with awesome people during this shoot. I love it when all I have to do is press the shutter.
