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 donny.com 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.

Wow, Brandon!!! You brought out the beauty (I hate to say this since you're his son, but) and the sexiness of your father in these pictures.

I applaud you, Brandon. You did a great job taking pictures of your father. I see why your father picked you. He could had picked anybody, but he trusted you.

Thanks for sharing these photos.

Shundra said...

I forgot to add. I love the serious ones. With all the pictures I have seen of your father, the serious ones are my favorites.

I love the one with him in the purple shirt/tie and his jacket behind his back.

Sara said...

Great work! My fave is the 3rd one.

Disneypal said...

Brandon - wow !! You are an amazing photographer. Those are great photos. I think the are all great but like # 2 and # 4 the best.

Brandon:

Awesome shots. I do like the one of the jacket over the shoulder.....very, very nice.

Your Father had confidence in you for this photo shoot and you have shown that you did a job well done. Congrats.

Karen W. said...

The first two shots are my favorite, but I honestly love them all. Great work, Brandon! And thanks so much for the sneak preview. (Thanks to your dad too.)

Nanlyn49 said...

WoW!!!! Love'm all. Especially the last one. YOU have brought out not how old he is but that he still can turn a head and make a heart throb.

Mama C. said...

Brandon! You've got quite the eye for format and structure! I don't know if I'd be able to pick an absolute favorite, although there's something that's really pleasing to me about the photo of your dad in front of the old neon sign. :)

Now... where's the shot with the banana in his ear? ;)

Laurie H said...

Brandon you have really out done yourself, these are amazing photo's. How are we supposed to vote and chose just one? This is what is called cruel and unusual punishment,LOL. Ok seriously, keep doing what you do with photography it's awesome.

Darlene said...

Brandon, I don't know why you were nervous about this shoot - you did a splendid job! You captured his professional side, serious side, playful side...and well, that handsome side always shows up with him! :)

All these photos are beautiful & they are extra meaningful because you can tell he trusted you & could be himself with you.

Hard to pick a favorite, but I think I like the 2nd one most as he looks so relaxed & playful!

Looking forward to seeing more!

Ok you may see him as your Dad -- but us fans see him differently and these photos are gorgeous! Having Donny Osmond as the subject I don't think a bad picture can be taken of this man. Thanks for sharing the photos. Good luck on your future as a photographer.

Carol said...

Brandon, just want to say you do have a future in photography. My favorite is the one of him in the purple shirt, but they are all great. Hope to see more of them.

Paula said...

They look great. Fantastic location.
The background looks so good.

Arlene in AZ said...

Very nice work, Brandon!

leslie said...

Brandon - the photos are BRILLIANT - YOU ARE SO TALENTED :) I couldn't decide which I like best. I loved them all.

I really like the last two. I love the wedding ring showing, and I love how you've captured the wisdom and aging gracefully.

Well Done Brandon my compliments:)

karin said...

Well done Brandon. You did make some wonderful photo's.

Linda said...

thank you for letting us have a sneak preview (thanks to your Dad as well)
they're great pictures and you obviously have a natural eye for this.
Difficult to pick a favourite!

Cathy said...

Fantastic photos Brandon! I love them all, but my favorite is the second one in the purple shirt with Donny smiling. I just love to see Donny smiling.

Sooz said...

Loved viewing your pictures Brandon, thanks for sharing them with us. It's so good to see you doing so well - congratulations and hurry up with the next lot! :)

Sooz in sunny Scotland! :) x

Tracey said...

Absoulutley beautiful, I like the second one, purple shirt and coat over shoulder, however they are all fabulous. Keep up the good work. Thank you so much for sharing and thank you BOSS for letting Brandon share with us.

Sarah Stiles said...

Brandon, you have nothing to worry about! You did an awesome job. And for the record, I think the best way to improve is to just do it. Jump right in the deep in and start swimming. Scary at first, but also exciting, and you will learn TONS more than sitting in a classroom (though sitting in the classroom can teach you a lot, too!)

Wow! Well done Brandon! Fab photos.

Suzie said...

Great photos Brandon. Really love the one of your Dad in the lilac shirt :)

Christine said...

Hi Brandon, LOVE the photo's. Excellent choice of photographer by the BOSS there.....
T like the way you got just enough background in the bottom one,s but still keep the focus on the main subject.
My fave is the one in the black waistcoat but then they are all brill, keep posting them. :-)

hanne said...

You did a great job :)

Toll House Cookie said...

You've definitely got the knack at bringing out the best features, lighting and angles. Like the backgrounds used. Your Dad is a perfect subject. It's great as a photographer knowing your subject well-and it shows in these photos. He's comfortable having you do the shoot. I think he'd better hire you if he does a tour book or needs CD jackets done.

emilee♥ said...

My favorite is the last one. :) You are a really good photographer.

Susy said...

I'm shooting a band at the sign graveyard on Saturday Thanks for sharing your shoot! By the way Great job!

Jeremy said...

I commented on the second batch but wanted to chime in on this first one. I'm late to seeing them all. You have really done well. Great work.

The next to the last one with the wedding ring showing just confirms the integrity and dignity that your father possesses. You are a wonderful photographer and your father must be very proud of you. As fans, we are very greatful that you share your photos with us. May God bless you.
