Portrait Photography Workshop

A look into the photo shoots by students in our Portrait Photography Workshop! Students learn each week about all the basic lighting and into the more specific and advanced lighting techniques to step up their portrait photo skills. The students have plenty of time shooting our models with each of the lighting setups. This class, as well as all our specialty workshops have smaller class sizes so each student has plenty of shooting time with the model to try out their new skills. In addition, the students have one-on-one time with the instructor to ensure their understanding of what their learning and to get their questions answered!

Strong Business Portraits!

Whether you realize it or not, your image is everything. This is especially true in business and attempting to sell yourself and services. Your photo can be used on business cards, websites, social media, political ads, and for the entertainment world…your headshot and resume combined are what get you an audition or meeting to book jobs. With this being said, your portrait or headshot should be done professionally and not a quick picture taken with a cell phone. We have years of experience with photographing business portraits and headshots for all fields of work, including this Business Portrait for a client.

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.

Last minute updates

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 photos make a great gift
