YOU MAKE THESE CONNECTIONS. IT IS FUNNY HOW IT HAPPENS. BUT WATCHING IT UNFOLD IS ALMOST MAGICAL. I MET TERRI A FEW YEARS AGO ONLINE AND WE BECAME FRIENDS. SHE FEW TO AUSTIN TO MENTOR WITH ME AND SHE EVEN STAYED IN MY VERY UNFINISHED HOME REMODEL…LIKE NO KITCHEN NOT FINISHED. WE EXPLORED AUSTIN, WE ATE, WE LAUGHED, WE STAYED UP SUPER LATE PLAYING WITH CAR LIGHTS, CAMERAS AND SPRINKLERS… IT WAS A WEEKEND OF EVERYTHING I NEEDED PLUS SOME.
WHEN SHE SIGNED UP FOR THE SENIOROLOGIE SHOOTOUT I WAS TEACHING AT I WAS THRILLED TO GET TO SEE MY FRIEND AND SPEND TIME WITH HER. BUT WHEN SHE HIRED ME TO DO SOME UPDATED HEADSHOTS FOR HER NEW SIGHT I WAS BEYOND HONORED AND HUMBLED. TO BE ASKED BY AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER TO SHOOT THEIR HEADSHOTS…THE ONES THEY WILL DISPLAY TO REPRESENT THEM TO THEIR FOLLOWING IS HUMBLING. IT WAS COLD, IT WAS GLOOMY, IT WAS PERFECT.
a year ago when I attended WPPI a few of my photographer friends and I decided to call up some models and go out to the desert and shoot since that terrain isn’t anything like what we have here in Texas. it was a small group of us so we all got to shoot…a lot.
So many people have swooned over those images…as did myself… I thought it would be fun to do it again this year!
So here is what we planned. FOUR photographers specializing in high school senior portraits….that means FOUR different shooting styles to learn from!
EIGHT senior aged models… I am NOT kidding when I say you are going to DIE when you see these girls…
and one of Nevada’s most sought after locations to not only shoot at but just to see while you are there… Nelson Ghost Town. Y’all. old abandoned buildings, plane wreckage, desert sunsets…are you kidding!!!
we will break off into four small groups, each group will get one shoot “leader” and 2 models. you will then be broken into 2 smaller groups to shoot. we want a VERY small shoot/model ratio to ensure you each get the shots you want and have time to instruct and pose your model before switching to the next model and rotating groups. the shoot leaders will be there to help field questions, give suggestions, help pose, etc… we are there to HELP so come with questions!
Sunday March 06, 2016
4 hours of SMALL group shooting & 1 hour of open Q&A for all the instructors.
We are providing transportation from the MGM Grand where WPPI will be hosted, to and from Nelson’s. We will also provide light snacks and water.
