back from SPA

Photography is great! This past week I attended the SPA conference in Las Vegas. I must say I was sad to see it end! SPA stands for Senior Portrait Artists. It's a conference where Senior Photographers get together to rub elbows, trade ideas, and basically hone each others' skill. What other industry do competitors further each others career!??! I loved working with these young models in some of the most beautiful settings I've ever been in. Many thanks to Phillips Mitchel for being my full time mentor. And Also to the other great teachers like Rod Evans, Fuzzy Dueknel, Sarah Smith, and the Boxs. The Photograph industry is so lucky to have dozens and dozens of great leaders who love to share their ideas with those willing to learn. Looking forward to San Diego in 2010!

Of course I shot these photos! I can't duplicate the lighting situation exactly but you'd be surprised to see the awesome shots we could get in the most mundane situations! And it never hurts to help out the natural situation with a little strobes or gels!

These are some of the most amazing photos I have seen on a photographer's website. Very professional. Great lighting and composition! Have you ever though about or been contacted by magazine or other publishing venues? You'd be a great asset. Raw talent, here.

I can't believe how well you captured her beautiful eyes. The "fuzziness" really seems to accent the depth of her eyes! WOW!!
