We photographed this model on Mill Avenue in Tempe Arizona. This happened to be her first modeling shoot ever, and she did great. I'm sure that future shoots will be even more relaxed. Beverly (the model pictured) wanted us to help her start her portfolio and her jump into commercial modeling. Of course, every model needs a good comp card with some head shots, and other photos to help potential agencies and clients identify the look, facial and body structure of the model. Models also...
Shadow Rock Church has a great view of the sunset over Phoenix, Arizona, making it a great spot for wedding photography. This particular wedding started a little late, so we missed the sunset by a few minutes, but the evening glow was nice.

I snuck into a seat near the back of the bland conference room at the Phoenix Airport Hilton this past Saturday not quite knowing what to expect from the latest Strobist seminar. Little did I know how much I'd learn about turning a boring conference room to into a photographic playground. The Strobist movement is a revolutionary approach to lighting just about anything - weddings, still life, photojournalism, portraits - with small but effective shoe-mount strobe flashes. Our instructor,...

Strobist, the off-camera lighting phenomenon, came  to Phoenix on March 15-16, 2008 at the Phoenix Airport Hilton. I'm looking forward to finally meeting David Hobby, the inspiration behind Strobist.com. As a photojournalist with the Baltimore Sun, David started the Strobist website a couple years ago as a way to share his knowledge on the art of off-camera lighting using small, battery-powered strobes. Since then, the Strobist movement has swept through virtually every photographic...

We did senior Portraits up at Las Sendas in northeast Mesa this morning. You wouldn't expect it in Arizona, but it was freezing cold up there. I think it was mostly the wind, which also played havoc with my umbrella and lighting. Thanks, for the good catches, Nick. We were going for a slightly different look on these senior portraits - a sort of homage to Dave Hill.

Las Sendas in Northeast Mesa, AZ is a great place for family portraits, and since Sarah hasn't had a family picture in a while, and I wanted to try out some new lighting, we decided to do a family portrait session up there. We arrived close to sunset and started to set up. Since we'd arrived a bit later than we'd hoped, I'd say that the ambient light was around 1/30 of a second at f4 - challenging, particularly if I wanted to maintain the silky smoothness that ISO 100 produces on Canon's...
