The long wait is over... The Vegas shoot preview is here

A couple of weeks ago I was able to go down to Vegas and shoot the new photos that will be on for my father. To be honest I was quite frightened and nervous that I was the only photographer and that he was solely going to use just the photo that I had created for his publicity. I thought that this was a lot of pressure to put on a photographer that is still going to school and learning the ropes, but as the shoot went on through the day I was starting to feel a little more comfortable and excited about what was happening... I'm very excited with the outcome of the shoot and I think that this will be a start of what I hope to continue pursue.

Well I talked to the boss and asked him if it is ok to have some photos up on my blog and he said that I could. So here they are... consider yourself lucky, you might be the first to see them...

This is the first batch because I have more that I want to show... so a few more will be coming soon.

My Family Photo! Finally

So I've been getting more and more emails and messages about the family photo that I did for my family because supposedly there are a lot of people that didn't get to see that coverage on the insider. So here is the photo of my great family (at least I think there great)... The photo is small because the blogger template column is not very wide and the picture is pretty panoramic so I'm sorry about that.

The story of this picture is that my family wanted to do a new picture now that we have two new additions to the family, Shelby and Emery. So we went to this field and I saw these weeds and I thought "this is perfect!" but I think that my family thought I was a bit crazy. We got out and I put the camera on a tripod but I forgot my remote to get the camera to take the picture so I had to run back and forth for the 10 different shots we took like this. I'm sure it was kind of funny to see if you didn't know what was happening. Despite the embarrassment of running back and forth it turned out great and it even had airtime on the insider.

Studio Lighting Final

This is a work in progress but these images are what I turned in for my final in my lighting class. The approach that I had to this assignment was the individual lifestyle of each person.

I really would like some feedback on what everyone thinks of the overall concept or individual images that are working well or not working well.

Danny Gans of 52 Passes Away

This morning, at 3am, Danny Gans passed away in his sleep.

Danny Gans was awarded Entertainer of The Year in Las Vegas for the past 11 years and recently moved his show to the Mirage at the Wynn. His personality on and off the stage was one that will be remembered and missed.

I was very privileged and honored to be the shows photographer for the recent move into the Wynn and thought it would be appropriate to post some photos of this show in honor to him and his family.
