Do What Scares You!

It’s always so important to push ourselves every so often. Do something unpredictable…something fun and new! The more we get out of our comfort zones and explore the world, our lives, our interests, the better off and more happy we will be. Why not try something you didn’t think you could do or something that scares you?

How about a photo shoot? Everyone has their own unique beauty and can become a top model in their personal photo shoot. You may choose whatever style you like. Boudoir, glamour, pin-up, fine art nude or even portrait. Whichever style you choose, we will bring your dream and vision to life. You will definitely have fun and also possible do something that may have scared you in the past. Just do it! You will feel a sense of life and living in the moment and perhaps a sense of living on the ‘wild side’!!!

Go ahead…live a little and book your personal photo shoot today!

So much to talk about

First of all, I have been teaching constantly.  And I have schedule a lot of photography classes and workshops.  So now is the time to learn all my tricks.

I played around with water for a bunch of boudoir photographs.  Be sure to check them out.  Next summer I will be doing this again.

And maternity and newborn photography is always popular.  I love it when my maternity clients return for their newborn photos.  It lets me enjoy a bit of that special time in their life.

Had some real fun creating this maternity photo recently.   I am always looking for new ideas.

Fashion workshop and more.

This week I hosted the Scottsdale Community College fashion photography class at my studio. The workshop was set up to provide the students with an opportunity to work in an actual studio to create some fashion images for their portfolios.

Everyone had a lot of fun and created some great photographs.

Above all, mastering the art of fashion photography is a useful skill for all aspiring fashionistas.

Whether you have dreams of fashion journalism, becoming the next big fashion blogger, or simply love collecting the latest designer pieces, being able to capture fashion on film is something that will always come in useful. Photography is so important for a lot of industries, especially for those working in fashion. They need good pictures of their products in order to sell them to customers, so having knowledge of fashion photography is important. However, if you aren’t fully confident with this yet, there are always companies offering fashion photography services to help businesses capture high-quality content. No matter how you do it, it’s just important that you are getting the best pictures of your clothing or designs to be able to promote them.

So many of my students have found that attending my fashion photography workshop has totally opened their eyes to an essential part of the fashion industry that they might not have considered before.

For example, one key lesson that I share with students is how to capture the perfect outfit of the day (or OOTD) post for social media. Everyone from fashion designers to the average social media user can now use a camera to capture an outfit, and therefore it makes sense to master the art of highlighting the details of a high fashion ensemble.

The best OOTD photos do not always feature the most expensive pieces either. I know plenty of successful fashion bloggers who use affordable replica pieces based on designs by big brands like Chanel, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton.

With this in mind, if you are an aspiring fashion blogger, you might want to check out some of the most popular replica websites out there like LuxuryTastic where you can find replicas at great prices.

Do not just take my word for it though, there are plenty of Luxurytastic reviews online that also make it clear just how popular these fashion replica websites can be.

Anyway, I am planning several new photography workshops for the summer.

Send an email to workshops@orcatek.com to get on my mailing list. Topics will include fashion photography, fine art nudes, boudoir photography, pin-up photography, and automotive photography. Workshops will be held across the country.

Things are settling down

Several students came to the studio for private photography lessons.    A few were repeat students coming in to take more advance classes.  I love teaching photography to enthusiasts.

Maternity photography was another busy area.   Some very excited moms to be came in to capture their pregnancy bellies.  Even some of the siblings got in on the act.

Sexy Stripper Pole Set

With pole dancing classes being popular, we started to get a lot of requests for stripper pole photos.  It took some time to find the right pole and solution and a way to create sexy and classy photos with this new boudoir set.

What kind of boudoir photographer would we be if we just set up a pole?  So it required much more than just a pole for us to be happy with the result.  We wanted to create the feeling of being in a club, dancing for that special guy.   As you can tell, it works.

Valentines Day is approaching

With the approach of Valentines day I am being kept busy with boudoir photography. After all, it does make a great gift for Valentines day. Along with the standard Roses for Valentine’s day delivery, never look past the power that photography can have as a gift.
