Photographers Assistant

On occasion, [OK, frequently :)], I find the need for an assistant on location.

They can be invaluable for shlepping equipment, taking care of little problems, and, as seen here, juggling babies and reflectors:

Thanks, Christopher!

Davis Family

I recently had the priviledge of photographing the Davis Family for their annual family portrait.

We created some images in the studio:

Then headed over to Champoeg State Park for some outdoor portraits:

And since their son Lane is into football, created a 'game face' image:

They even brought their nephew:

It was a blast for all & I hope to continue to participate in their tradition!

Convention Update

I spent a great 3 days in classes at the annual PPO Convention, held at the McMenamins Edgefield campus in Troutdale, Oregon.

Met a bunch of new folks, got reacquainted with some photographers I'd met before, did some networking, and learned quite a bit.

We had classes on lighting, marketing, high school seniors, weddings, and more!

I even entered their print competition with this print:

I received a score of 74, which isn't of merit quality, is still considered above average. This image carries much more in emotional impact, but technically has some issues, which I knew about.

I'll do better next time.

New Advertising

Thanks to Iain at Sign-On in Newberg, Oregon, I've got some new signage at a very reasonable price, and just in time for the PPO Convention next week!
