OneLight.

By Photographers FYI No Comments

Just got back a bit ago from a preview showing of the soon to be released OneLight DVD. OneLight is the work of my good friend and colleague Zack Arias. Back in 2006 I attended Zack’s workshop and it totally changed the way I shoot. What Zack does with lighting is nothing short of amazing.

For all you photographers out there, trust me, this DVD will be money well spent. Check out the disc one trailer/montage below.

Dan and Anne

By Personal Work, Portraits No Comments

So this past memorial day, Bethany and I got together with our really good friends Dan and Anne Almasy. We grilled out and then had a photo-swap! Dan and Anne are both amazing photographers. I am a huge fan of their work.

Its such a blessing to have such great friends who are also photographers! They have imparted much wisdom to me concerning the photography biz and specifically wedding photography. You can check out their stellar work here and also see some shots they did of Bethany and I on their blog here.

Now the images…

love this…

Dan and I ripped the viewfinder off one of my old polaroid cameras and did some “through the lens” aka TTL shots. This is the result… Pretty cool huh?

Here is a shot of Anne. For you photographers out there…no, I didn’t do anything to Anne’s eyes. They really are that brilliant!

The following images are from what Bethany and Anne coined as a “friend shoot.” They have become really good friends over the past year or so. FACT: They are wearing each other’s jeans. 🙂

yeah…i know…

Dan and Anne…love you two!

Greg + Jessica + Gulf Shores = GOOD times…

By Personal Work, Portraits No Comments

A couple weeks back, Bethany and I were invited to join our good friends Greg and Jessica in Gulf Shores for a little mini vacation. Jessica’s dad has a sweet condo there. It was a fabulous trip and good times were had by all.

I did a little photo shoot with Greg and Jessica at this really cool old military fort….

notice the sign…

Had to do a jump shot of course…this is actually a very natural thing for Greg and Jessica 🙂

aww…look at these two…

I showed Greg these and he responded… “I think my wife is hot.”

Bethany and Jessica…

and of course *my* hot wife…

If I had to describe Greg using only one image…this would be it…

Greg and Jessica’s super cute little dog “Poopeye” came along on the trip. She got her very own photo shoot as well. Seriously, she *knew* she was having her picture taken.

The beautiful pier out into the bay that we basically had all to ourselves…

Greg and I did *a lot* of fishing…

There was some crabin’ as well…

On our last day there we all went to a wonderful little beignet shop. Bethany definitely enjoyed it! 🙂

And finally, I will leave you with this…
