December 7, 2011 | By | One Comment

Terrence Lighten + Steve Jean Lake MG 7100 Terrence Lighten   Las Vegas Wedding Cinematographer of the Year True to his giving spirit, Terrence Ligthen made a behind-the-scenes video of the annual Vegas PUG shootout out at Jean Lake. The Vegas PUG is a monthly gathering of photographers in Las Vegas. We get together to share knowledge, help each other out, and have some fun. Once a year we do a hands on shoot.

This photo is a test shot of my lighting at the lighting demonstration I set up for the shootout. Terrence and his #1 man Steve took a second to pose for me.

Just so happens that Terrence & his company Lighten Films won the coveted “Wedding Cinematographer of the Year” award at last night’s Las Vegas Wedding Awards.

Thanks for modeling gentlemen, and congratulations on the big win!

The only requirement was that the couple meet with us for a consultation. Nearly 30 couples signed up for consultations, and many more came to us directly through the Internet and our Contact page.

We met with so many cool couples. And we wish we could award a free engagement session to each and every one. But the stars aligned for only one, and that couple is …

Kari & Keenan! Yay!

To all the other wonderful couples my wife Chris & I met with, thank you SO MUCH for making time to meet with us. It was honestly a pleasure to get to know you and learn about your wedding plans. I truly hope to be able to work with each and every one of you in the near future.

Behind the Scenes - on location lighting

I am so grateful to have been invited by the incredibly talented and effervescent Chelsea Nicole to lead the lighting component of our annual on-location photo shoot. It will be Monday, December 5, 2011 from 3pm ’til dusk out at the Jean dry lake bed. For full details, including directions, you should check out the Vegas PUG Facebook page. We’re already expecting over 60 photographers – all of whom are in for a very big fun beautiful surprise regarding our models. I will demonstrate how dramatically different portraits can look when you bring strobes and you are Master of the Light! If you’re not yet signed up (it’s FREE) come on out to get a chance to flex your photo muscles in a new direction. Besides the off-camera strobe group, photographers will have the opportunity to visit 3 other groups, all with their own models. And, as far as I know, you get to keep and use the photos in your portfolio.
