It’s been kind of crazy lately and I haven’t made a post in weeks! Here are some of the things I’ve been working on.
I promise it won’t be weeks until my next post!
Here are a few more shots from the session yesterday with Jandi. A few different looks here, a high key b&w, a fun action shot and a classic pose.
I did a little more studio work today, I’m starting get comfortable with all the new lighting equipment. I also put two coats of primer on the walls, all in all a busy weekend! Here’s a shot from this afternoon’s session. Jandi was very patient as I fumbled through a few different lighting set ups. I’ll post more photos later.
I had an opportunity do a test shoot with Fawn today in the new studio. We tried a few different setups and even got a hand from Max. Overall I learned a lot and we got a few good shots. I shot tethered to my laptop, which is a fantastic way to shoot! There’s nothing like seeing the shot instantly on the computer screen, sure beats the small LCD on the back of the camera.
Did a shoot in an old farm-house outside of town with Kristen today. When we started the shoot we had a little snow and it made for a few good shots. We went inside and took a few more photos, but we could have used a little heat. I’ll be glad when my studio space is ready in a few weeks!

We didn’t get enough of the cold yesterday, so we went out for a little more today. Although it was just as cold, (the metal frame on my large reflector was actually frozen at the joints!) we managed to get a few good shots. We went to the Riverfront Park in Billings, a great place to shoot any time of the year. We actually got a few different looks, by just using reflectors and a shallow depth of field. I really need to find a pair of gloves that will keep my hands from freezing, but still allow me to work the camera!
Here are a couple more shots from yesterday’s shoot.
Did a quick shoot with Macy today, she was looking for some new shots to take with her on her upcoming trip to NYC. We’ve got a bunch of good shots, this was just this first one I happened to come across, I’ll post some other soon.
During my shoot with Kendra she put on a blue denim dress, after a few shots I told her the dress really wasn’t working and did nothing for her figure. So… I was wrong, but in my defense it looks much better in B&W than it did in color! And let’s be honest, Kendra would look good in a paper sack!
In my last posts I said I had two photo shoots with beautiful women this weekend, actually there was a 3rd. Granted a much younger version, but every bit as cute! Here Laila is striking a pose for her photo shoot, her pictures aren’t for her portfolio, just her 1 year portrait. This was shot with natural lighting and a few reflectors, who needs a studio!
