Different Progress, but still progress!

when I last posted, I had envisioned going through some of my wedding images from the shoots the weekend before for my new advertising campaign. Then I decided I also wanted to go through some images from some recent weddings too. Well, let's just say I wasn't the most organized with disc (image) storage. So, in keeping with my "New Year, New Image" theme, I spent the entire weekend organizing all of my image storage disks along with a very detailed spreadsheet! It was a huge undertaking that I can say is over 90 percent done. I have been saying for years that it needed to be done and finally, it will be. So... all this week I will be picking my wedding images. I will keep you posted!

Working with new Pro Lab for Incredible image output!

Today's blog is about Great News! I have been searching for what seems like forever to find a Pro Lab with a large variety of output solutions to meet both the needs of my clients and myself and that has great customer service. This may seem like an impossible task, but then add a cost/value factor in and now it is like finding a needle in a haystack! I am happy to say, however, that I feel like I have found that needle! The New Lab offers a Wide Variety of papers, sizes, and custom services ~ all at a great price! I am very excited and know that my customers will appreciate the quality and value that this Lab offers.

On another note: I have been going through the images from the 2 wedding shoots from last weekend as well as some weddings I have recently shot and am narrowing down the images for my advertising campaign! I am very excited, as this will be my first public media launch! I will have the final image selection done by Sunday and when I get proofs back from my graphic designer, I will post them!

a weekend of shooting outdoors in the wind!

Well, it has been a crazy weekend of shooting for some new advertising images! I plan on getting them out in the public as soon as possible and am really excited about the shoots that were just completed for this project! the models were great and i had alot of help from a good friend of mine with lighting and setup/teardown of shooting areas. He even saved a treasured Wedding Veil from blowing into the Bellagio Fountains (with a little help from a tree). I am in the editing process now and hope to have proofs to the printer very soon! I am also working on a banner ad for this blog for my website so more people can stay in tune with what i am up to! if you are reading this and can design banners, please email me at: and let me know as i am swamped with editing images and would love help or feedback on a killer banner ad!

can it be, two blogs in one day?

well, I didn't plan on going to the dmv, but since I was close I decided to renew my license. This weekend I have two shoots planned. Both are wedding themed and for some new advertising I plan to release soon! saturdays shoot is at a private rental property in SE Las Vegas and sundays shoot is scheduled for the LV Strip! Weather is supposed to be a factor for both shoots but I have backup plans just in case. I will be using 2 different models as brides and the same groom for both shoots. I have some strong image ideas in mind and can't wait to see the end resulting ad published. I also have a few other shoots coming up and I am in the process of coming up with ideas to make them Reality soon. More on that later... My dmv number is next so.... Until next time...

And so it begins...

How to start a blog, what to say, what pressure! Actually, I will start with why I will be blogging. I got a new phone (the palm centro) and it had this blogging site on it, along with the capability of blogging to the site directly from the phone. Very Cool! so as a new year begins, the direction of my photography is evolving and I want to keep a record of this evolution. This blog may not be the smoothest read, but I plan on using it as a tool for professional growth and to inform my friends and family of what is going on (especially when I am traveling, which I plan on doing a lot more). As of now. I am planning for a trip to Alaska in june with a quick stop in Portland to visit with family. That is it... My first Blog. I survived!
