I have just arrived back from the Florida Keys where I go tarpon fishing with my big brother, Brian, each year-well really, he does the fishing and I just take pictures! Fifteen year veteran fishing guide, Jon Milchman lead us to some incredible 125+ lb tarpon that pulled some acrobatics like I have never seen, and never thought possible from a fish! Tarpon fishing is a unique brand of fishing that requires an extreme amount of knowledge, skill, patience, and precision, that I'm not sure I would have the ability to take on! Here are a few selects from my trip...
Stacy is just back from the opening of the Palmetto Portrait Project series, and launch of the book of the collaboration in Columbia, SC, and takes of for the first ever Wounded Warrior Games in Colorado this Sunday. We will be routing her on during her training and competitions over the next two weeks!
Lastly, classes started up again this week with a great number of students enrolled for the term. The chaos continues for me with Friday and Saturday weddings, and my Natural Light Portraiture Workshop on Sunday. There are a couple of seats left if you call by 3pm Friday!
Keep an eye out for some awesome out of town workshop instructors on the horizon!
See you all soon!
I am just off eight full days of tennis at the Family Circle Cup tennis tournament held locally at Daniel Island. I have photographed this event for the AP for the last four years, but this year switched into a new role as one of the official Family Circle Cup photographers alongside Chris Smith of Chris and Cami Photography. For many years fellow CCforP Instructor Douglas Cunningham has done an excellent job photographing the event, so I thank him for recommending me! Here are a few images from the past week, but only a few-I think I shot over 10,000 images, and that is after deleting a few in camera! It was a fantastic week, but I am certainly glad to be back at the Center!
See you all soon,
The Intern's Digest
Being one of Stacy’s interns last quarter, I learned a lot just from watching and listening to her much less helping her out with photoshoots. Stacy helps me talk out my ideas and figure out the best way to come about a solution, so I didn’t hesitate in asking her to help me out with part of my studio portraits for my exit portfolio.
Stacy helped me talk out and decide what kind of lighting I had visioned and we worked from there. When I didn’t understand why this light was moving back and the other forward she explained it to me and made me take a test shot everytime we moved a light, so that I could see how much each move effected the overall outcome.
