Andi, July 2010 Workshop During the last workshop I mentioned to the guys when there was down time to take Andi around the studio and shoot her quick and easy with window light.  My studio is so overwhelming their minds go crazy with possibilities and they soon get off track.  There are so many backgrounds […]

Chelsey,  July 2010 Workshop We ask that a lot in the studio when models show up with cute wardrobe.  Every time Chelsey shows up her suitcase is full of new wardrobe and that fact puts her high on my testing list.  I asked where she got this top and she mentioned the tags were still […]

Sometimes it pays not to get what you ask for.  I was shooting a comp card with a female model in the left image location.  The location is Birmingham which is a big dog walking community, the shops leave  fancy and fun water bowls on the sidewalks for them.  It’s a beautiful boutique style downtown […]

Normally one item will set me off in a direction and this image is no different.  Pete had the white t-shirt and hat, it reminded me of an Italian fisherman, not sure why?  I went around the studio and found the leather fishing net and the pole.  I bought the net at Big Lots (for […]

I think this set up has high impact for the money and time.  I went to Home Depot and bought a large round cheap light fixture.  You take it apart but leave the wires attached and simply plug it in.  The bulb doesn’t get that hot and the model can touch it.  The power is […]

I love this chair.  I can’t remember where I picked up this little chair, road side pit stop, dumpster dive, loading dock snag, but I know when I spotted it I had sweet love.  The seat has since broken at a workshop a couple of years ago though and is totally missing (not sure what […]
