Of course we will still provide all the services we are known for such as amazing boudoir photography, beautiful maternity photographs, cute newborn photos, head shots, automotive photography and photography classes and workshops.
Time to catch everyone up on what has been happening here at my Phoenix Studio. Okay, technically Tempe, but drive 1/2 mile north and you are in Scottsdale, and 1/2 mile west and you are in Phoenix, so close enough.
I have been teaching more introduction to photography classes than I can count. Lots of eager students. I love teaching.
Doing more pin-up than usual. The studio is a great place for pin-up photography. Here is a sample pin-up I call Windy Day.

I always like to create something in the classic style of some of my favorite vintage pin-up artists like Gil Elvgren.
And just in time for Father’s Day I had the chance to create this touching father and son photo of a newborn baby and his dad.

Hope to be a little sooner with my next update to what is happening here in Phoenix with your favorite photographer, Orcatek.
Orcatek Photography just became a certified Google Trusted Photographer for the Phoenix area. The interactive virtual walk-thrus that are starting to be seen on Google Maps and Google Place pages are created by Google Trusted Photographers.

My photography workshops and classes are becoming very popular. I have been teaching at least one class a week and have had private lessons in between.
The holiday season is a prime season for boudoir photography, which is why I have been lacking in my blog updates. Lots of men will be getting a very special present this year.
Sexy Holiday Photos
I also shot a lot of maternity and newborn photographer sessions. Some amazing new families came in for their shoots with some of the cutest newborn babies.

And of course the rest of my time was filled with holiday portraits.
Have a safe and fun holiday season!
Did some more filming for the reality show as a photographer. Hopefully I won’t end up on the cutting room floor. I will keep you posted as to when it airs.
Had some real fun creating this maternity photo recently. I am always looking for new ideas.

Also been shooting a lot of boudoir photography for holiday gifts. Several have chosen to add some fine art nudes such as this one.

I also been teaching more classes. Several introduction to photography classes and a Photoshop workshop. December has a bunch more classes coming. Check out my photography workshop site for more details.
The past 2 weeks have kept me so busy that I didn’t get a chance to post until now.
I’ve been doing a lot of teaching. Introduction to photography, Boudoir photography workshop, Introduction to Photoshop and lots of private lessons. To see what I am teaching next check out Orcatek Photography Workshops in Phoenix.
In between teaching I’ve had a lot of fun shooting. One of my favorites was a maternity pin-up photography session. As you can see, we had a lot of fun.
This week ahead is also swamped, which is good. Love it when I am busy.
So go ahead and book your class or photo session. Let’s keep this trend going.
This week it seems I was the Phoenix Pin-up Photographer of choice. And it was a blast.

You never know where a shoot will take you with pin-up. Seems like there is always a new prop or idea popping into my head to create something new.
I have another Introduction to Photography Class coming up soon. Great way to learn how to get the most out of your camera.
I have some special Maternity Photography shoots coming up soon. These are going to be fun. Come back soon to see the results.
This week was full of models coming in for portfolio updates. Some were experienced and some were just beginners.
In between I managed to shoot a few headshots for a couple of executives.
Over the weekend I taught my Introduction to Photography class. It was a huge success and I got several emails from students telling how I had helped them.
My new website dedicated to my photography workshops is up and ready for viewing. Here you can read about the various workshops, check the schedule and register.
Of course my ever popular introduction to photography class will always be available. Along with advanced topics such as studio lighting, boudoir, maternity, fine art nudes and automotive. So check out, share it with your friends and maybe even take a class yourself.

I photographed a lit bit of everything this week, which makes for a fun week. As usual I got calls for headshots that were needed right away. I usually can squeeze a session in same day if the client is flexible on time.
Several boudoir photography clients came in to create that special gift for the man in their lives. One was a bride to be who wanted a bridal boudoir session to create a grooms gift. Another was celebrating an anniversary. And one was just about to turn 40 and wanted to get the photos done to celebrate. It made for an amazing week.
Maternity photographs were also in high demand this week. One of the lucky moms was going to have twins. I’m looking forward to her return for her newborn photo session.
A new model came in to get some new photos for her portfolio. She was just a beginner but was great fun to work with.
My new website for my photography workshops is finally available. Check it out.
