Deja vu…..All Over Again!

My Wedding Shooting Philosophy has always been…”When something works…USE IT!”
So once again a few weeks ago,  I found myself at this Classic location, with my Wedding Guys for this Cool Shot! What made this shoot doubly neat, or more accurately “more Quadruple-y Neat” is the fact that FOUR of the guys appear in BOTH Images!
in 2014 was Jon & Katie’s Wedding…..and this year 2017 we were back for Greg & Ashley’s Big Day.
With this gang…I have a good feeling we’ll all be back here again!20170429-RB1_482620140906-RB1_8082

Sassy Cassie!!!

Shot Cassie last month..She’s my favorite Young, Local Artist…having painted the fine Zim Horse’s Heads Mural on the side of my 211 Studio Building. So this day I got to return the Artistic Talent Favor!!!

Jordan

Had the pleasure yesterday to shoot this young lady for the second year in a row. If we forget the 99% humidity and the fact that we got drenched at the end of the very last shots while working on the bricks….(and if you look really closely you can see a couple raindrops streaking through the shot)…we had a BLAST!!  Fun Times!  lol

Winter Blahs…. to Summer Heat!

With less than two weeks remaining till my first 2016 Wedding, the Wintertime Work Wish List is almost complete:
All Inclusive Winter/Spring Cleaning –  Almost DONE!
New Color Scheme Painting & Layout of Studio Framing & Gear Room – DONE
New, Clean Energy Efficient LED Lighting Installed, Inside & Out – DONE
New Outside Artwork Illumination Installed and Looking GREAT – Check it out the next time you’re driving by at night!
And with all that completed before the Wedding Work begins, I actually had some time to dig through the archives of old shoots from a few years ago that I really liked but never did a lot with, and worked a little of my Post Shoot Processing Magic, and I think they came out Pretty Sweet! So what do you think?
Models, lines are open, and operators are taking your booking calls now!!!

“SummerShine Fun in the Sun”

Hopefully now Spring is just around the corner, and soon we’ll finally be able to get outside once more for some fun outdoor shooting. I know that I’m known best for my Wedding and Sports Images, and on occasion each season I really like to kick it up a notch, get down & dirty & play “Grunge & Glamour Fashion Fotographer!”  And for sure, these aren’t those Cheesy “Old Lady Glamour Shots” that your Mother had done! What better gift for that favorite guy in your life than a Sexy, Personal, One of a Kind Photo Session where you can really let loose & show Him & The World Who You REALLY ARE!  Bring along your Best Girlfriend to cheer you on and help make sure that your hair and makeup look Absolutely Amazing! Live a Little, Let Loose and Have Some Fun for a Change! Contact Me Today and Tell Me what YOUR Modeling Fantasy will look like!!!

“Trust Me Boys…Just Trust Me!”

So it’s Cassie & my old buddy Matt’s Wedding Day.

I’m shooting the ladies through the early afternoon as they are getting ready at a local winery, and I have to meet Matt & his guys down in Downtown Watkins Glen on The Pier @ 2:30 to do our shots of the guys along the Watkins Harbor. I’m halfway there when Matt calls me and says “Watkins is just Nuts!” It’s the Cardboard Boat Regatta in full force, and traffic is barely moving. Parking spots? Good luck there! People ALL OVER EVERYWHERE! Our Pier idea is toast. OK……so this is where I’m Really, Really Good! Improvising! Creating Something out of Nothing!

As I’m driving, I remember that I just passed this great old, beat to hell cottage/farmhouse that I have passed a million times while heading up the lake to other Weddings. So I tell Matt to meet me there with the guys, and we’ll do our shoot right there. So the Boys arrive, and while getting out of their cars they all give me “THE LOOK”. I’ve seen it a Million times! Whenever I take clients to spots that I just know will be killer backgrounds, they ALWAYS give me this “LOOK” of total disbelief! “WTH are we going to do here” they always ask? This time they were also worried that the place was going to collapse on all of us! “So when exactly did the Beverly Hillbillies move out?” someone asked…lol and I’m chuckling all the while.

“Trust Me Boys! Just Trust Me!”….when you finally see what I’m creating here….you’ll ALL be telling me what a Camera God I TRULY AM! Like my hero David Letterman always says…..”There’s NO OFF POSITION on the GENIUS SWITCH!”
So Gentlemen……….What do you think now?
You’re Welcome!!!!
