Technical Tuesday: Art Ketchum setup

If you don’t know, Art Ketchum was my mentor and friend. I miss Art every day and will always be indebted to him for opening my eyes to photography. Art was always straight laced and honest in everything he did. Even when he ripped apart a photo of yours, he did it with a Grandfathers

You’ve got a dirty mouth

I’m sure you’ve heard it before. If you haven’t, it means what people perceive is their reality. Notice i said THEIR reality as their reality and ours as photographers, do not always mesh. This is why it’s important for us as photographers, models and people in general, need to make sure we are 100% clear

This week’s Old School Friday is Vicki. I had two sessions with Vicki and they were interesting to say the least. Vicki will be featured in my “Meet the Models” segment next week! The purpose of Old School Friday is to show my lighting and editing styles from anything other than what I’m doing right

Today’s Meet the Models is Crystal W. This story and images dates back to my first few years in Colorado. I had met Crystal on Myspace (Yea, that’s how far back we’re going) and I instantly had a professional crush on her! I thought she was very pretty and very sexy! What made her sexy

Old School Friday: Crystal W

This weeks Old School Friday is of Crystal. Unlike my previous OSF images, these images aren’t bad at all!  These images represent the time when I really started to look to define my shooting. I had gotten my own studio space and was working hard towards sponsorship and really started paying attention to lighting and

Meet the Models: Jodi P

Last Friday’s Old School Friday exposed you to Jodi. Today, you get to meet her. I met Jodi on a model portfolio site. She was in Fort Collins which was about 45 minutes away from me so I made the drive. I had also shot several other models so it was well worth the trip. When I

Nothing like an Old School Friday update on Saturday right? This weeks OSF update is of Jodi P. Jodi will be my featured Meet the Model next week and this story is a good one! As usual, OSF posts are how I delivered the images to the models. It’s also about how I used to

Meet the Models: Layla

Last week I posted for Old School Friday and the model was Layla. I said at that time I would do a Meet the Models on her and here we are. I honestly don’t remember where Layla and I met up, I do know it was online. The first shoot that we had scheduled, she flaked out

Meet the Models: Hosnah Safi

Kabulie is a young lady that found me through mutual friends. Actually, I think she found me via Audrey. Either way, she had contacted me and wanted to shoot. The first two times we set up a session, she flaked on me. This was right around the time I started to relax my “flake factor” rules

Old School Friday: Farrah

Farrah was a “mature” young lady that came in for photos. I was super nervous because I had never really shot anyone that wasn’t 18-25. A then friend said I should shoot the “mature” ladies because they’re more comfortable with themselves. Farrah was no exception to this rule. These images aren’t bad, but could be

Meet the Models: Meg

Meg was scheduled to go up last week but I was out of town on the mini vacation. I could have put up something quick, but why cheat her? I met Meg through a mutual model named Ember. Ember had contacted me about wanting to model and came in for a shoot. She had a

Tech Tuesday: Natural light shooting

One of the biggest problems I have with natural light shooters is in my opinion, they over compensate by using things such as the “strobist” scam stuff. I’m of the opinion that shooting with natural light needs to be addressed the same as shooting indoors with strobes. The biggest problem? Lots of people who are

A good photographer is a VOYEUR!

That’s right, I said it. Any photographer that is worth his or her weight in gold, is a voyeur. Now when I say voyeur, I’m not talking about the creeper that looks into your window when you’re changing…well..some might, but not my point. Photography is about capturing the essence of the person, or at least

Old School Friday’s Erika

This weeks Old School Friday is Erika. Erika was referred to me by a webmaster who creates websites for chicks. Shooting for the website genre, you don’t pay as much attention to the rules as you do keeping the focus on the sexiness of the subject. While I did have some focus on the photography end, I

Meet Jessica F

Today’s “Meet the Model” is Jessica F. I had written Jessica long ago about a shoot. She blew me off. I was crushed. She said she didn’t get it, but I don’t believe her  Either way, fast foward a year or so and we’re friends on Facebook. I needed a model and posted that I was

Old school Friday: Dani

Dani was the first model I shot (you’ll meet her soon on Meet the Models) Keeping true with the Old School Friday, these photos are terrible lol. Everything from connection to execution. Holding true to this category’s theme, I wish I could shoot her TODAY to compare.

Meet the Models: Audrey

I first met Audrey on Facebook. She was a friend of a friend and I loved her look.

She listed on her Facebook page that she was Brazilian, so I sent her a message that said “você muito bonito!” I never got a response from her so I didn’t know if I offended her by telling her “You’re very pretty”

Old School Friday kick off!

If you’re a regular to the blog you will notice there are some changes to the categories. I’ve decided to make it a bit more user friendly and easy to navigate. One of the new things I’m introducing is “Old School Friday”. The purpose of this is to show everyone that not everything I’ve taken is publication worthy or sponsor pleasing.
