For the past 3 years we’ve had this great opportunity to be part of the Family Portrait Day event at the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center in New York.  The first year was probably the most challenging as we didn’t really know what we got ourselves into – you can read about that here.  It’s a crazy weekend of setup and preparation to accommodate hundreds of family members who come out to spend the day with their children and get something that they would normally not be able to get — a professional family portrait taken.  All the hard work of the hospital staff, volunteers, nurses, therapists, and photographers is worth the smile you see on the faces of the families as they walk away with a cherished photo of their loved ones.  Truly a gift.

I recently had the opportunity to attend a workshop taught by Fer Juaristi and hosted in town by local photographer David Jones.  It’s always been important to me to continue to learn different aspects of my craft.  I think Fer has a really unique view as a photographer and I can appreciate his vision.  Here’s a few shots from the workshop — our great models for the day were Austin photographers inTandem.

OneLight Workshop

March 1, 2012

In November I had the opportunity to host a workshop for Zack Arias. He is probably one of the most respected people in the photography industry. Zack’s OneLight workshop starts with the fundamentals of photography all the way through to some great lighting techniques. This workshop was great for photographers just staring out as well as seasoned pros. Zack’s way of teaching makes it easy for all to understand and grasp different lighting techniques which can sometimes be a little overwhelming. The workshop honestly is one of the more expensive workshops for photographers but having been to several different ones this is by far the most worthwhile to go to. Zack was not shy about answering any questions. He seemed to really care that everyone’s questions were answered and that all who attended understood everything he was teaching. —  For the workshop we needed 2 models to help. I called up a model that I had worked with before, Emily, who did great. The other model we used was a fellow photographer Josh Tyi, who was horrible as a model, just kidding Josh.
