The 8 Advantages of Using Speedlites vs Studio Strobes #Strobist

October 16, 2013 | By | 8 Comments

I am a #Speedlite #Strobist. Some of my heroes are Joe McNally, David Hobby, and Dave Black.

I’ve owned studio strobes for the past 8 years or so. Currently I own four White Lightning x3200s, and an Alien Bee ring flash with the MoonUnit modifier. I also own many softboxes, PocketWizards, sync cords, power cords, shot bags, and everything else one needs to use studio strobes well.

The Act Nightclub – A Las Vegas Bridal / Portfolio Session

September 26, 2013 | By | One Comment

I just found this AMAZING location for bridal shoots, engagement shoots, and even full scale weddings – The Act Nightclub at The Palazzo. It’s not free, but it’s so worth the session fee, because it is gorgeous, textured, historied, many layered, and completely accommodating. Many beautiful locations in Las Vegas are essentially off-limits for Bridal, Engagement, and Wedding photography because they are private property that do not welcome outside photographers. For a reasonable fee, The Act Nightclub will open its doors to you and your professional photographer for an amazing shoot. I’LL BE BACK!

Take a look at this sneak peek of tonight’s shoot with Daphne and William.


Tremendous thanks to every contributor to this shoot:

4th of July Family Portraits – StreetStyle

July 8, 2013 | By | No Comments

I love these casual yet professionally lighted portraits of my family & friends enjoying this past 4th of July. I love how they’re informal, yet gorgeous. I wish some creative family would hire me to take photos like these of their next gathering. I promise they’ll become more precious with every passing day, to the point of becoming priceless. 🙂

For the tech geeks, it’s kinda cool that all of these shots are hand-held at between 0.6 seconds and 1.2 seconds, which is an eternity in camera terms. The Speedlite IS the shutter.


Album Images get Extra Special Treatment.

June 7, 2013 | By | No Comments

While we treat all of our client’s images with love and care, the images bound for client’s albums are given extra special TLC.

In addition to the usual editing we do for all images

  • straightening
  • cloing out distractions
  • toning
  • vignetting

we even do labor-intensive headswpas for those folks in the master group shot who might be blinking or just not looking their best.

Why? ‘Cuz we care, and because we’re compulsive about making our client’s images look their very best.
