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.
Orcatek Photography is now working with CinemaTique Creative Group to produce an wide variety of project including UFOria TV, Soldier (a new docudrama), music videos and educational services.
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.
This past week has been loaded up with photography classes here in Phoenix. There were several introduction classes, a fine art nudes workshop and some private lessons. Next week is just as busy with more intro classes and another fine art nude workshop.
In between I had a chance to shoot some motorcycles featuring some cool new lighting.
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.
Here is my studio:

The wives on Vh1’s Baseball Wives show decided to make a charity pin-up calendar. I was selected to be the photographer for the project. I had so much fun working with these women on their project. Everyone treated me great and I hope to work with them again in the future.
I appeared in two episodes which can be see on Vh1’s website or on TV. I am in Episode 2 doing the actual photo shoot and in Episode 4 where we discuss the retouching they would like. All I can say is that we had a lot of fun, you’ll have to watch both episodes to see. I am in the second half of both episodes.

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.
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.
This weekend’s introduction to photography class sold out early. There is still some room in the introduction to studio lighting. I also added two more introduction to photography class later in the month.
I shot some fun couples maternity photos this week. I love to shoot couples as part of a maternity photography session. It is great to show the love for a new baby.
Boudoir photos kept me so very busy this week. Lots of amazing women came to the studio for the photo shoots. Everyone wanted to remain private so I can’t show you any photos this time.
My favorite shoot was for Flashes of Hope at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. A great cause that I love to volunteer for whenever I can.
