I have been slacking just a bit. Between going to the Outer Banks, working on an Etsy site and collaborating on shoots, I let my ADHD get the best of me at times!

Between this web site and my Etsy web site among other things I’ve always got something going on. Thanks for your patience!
I managed to finalize a shoot that I should have done 7 months ago when I talked about it the first time. Sam and I met in Hernando to do something I had planned, that I wasn’t able to do the first time. This young lady is focused, professional and has her own good ideas about doing shoots. We are currently working on more things that aren’t mainstream, that aren’t the same things other photographers do regularly. If you know how I work, I don’t want the same things everyone else has. Too much redundancy can be boring.
I shot this in the shade, mid-day with two strobes and umbrellas. It was with a Canon 5d MkII – 70-200 F/4 at ISO 400 and F8
Greg Cobb has been doing wedding photography for years and has had his work published. He puts a lot of meticulous detail and planning into each of them, factoring in a plan B for anything that could possibly go wrong, regardless of the chances. The philosophies are simple; If the wrong photographer doesn’t do a spectacular job for you, he can’t re-shoot the wedding the following week, and not ever person who can shoot senior pictures can do the same with a wedding. The differences are numerous. Make your decision carefully. For most couples, this is a once in a life time event.
A testimony on why cutting corners on a wedding photographer isn’t a good idea!
So a wedding client that got referred to me ask for a quote and they couldn’t afford it. They went with the cheaper photographer. I was fine with that as I was rather busy and heavily booked during these few months anyways.
Now they just received their photos from their photographer and came back to me asking me to fix their low res jpeg photos because they are underexpose,noisy and orange. And they are wondering if I can make them look like my images with PS.
I told them they need to get them fix through the photographer that took them if that’s even possible. Unfortunately you can’t really expect that I will be able to make them look professional with just Photoshop. Basically this is a post for those that want to go the cheaper route to rethink twice because you can’t really fix it once is all over and done.
Gallery Coming Soon!
If you have any questions about modeling, would like to inquire about pricing, need recommendations on a Makeup Artist or have just an interest in working with me, please leave a message and I will get back with you soon. At this point in time I am available on weekends only unless being hired for a wedding.
Thank you for visiting my web site.
