Last night I shot the cover for the May issue of www.AZModelShowcase.com and this is one of the almost 400 shots that I captured.
The models name is Kayla and she is a fairly new model who has a true heart for this and is doing I think very well.
AZ Model Showcase is an online model magazine that I launched a few months ago to help up and coming models get exposure and is becoming very popular so far.
This was also a great opportunity for me as well, helping me to continue my progression as a "professional photographer". Really it was a great opportunity for all that had been involved from Rob the studio owner at 141 Boston, Lisa from Angel Kissed Make-up, Nancy DeOrta who was the hair stylist and also Brad Armstrong who help as a technical consultant with lighting.
People have become my choice of photography from starting off as more of a nature photographer but I do still enjoy getting out there with nature.

Yesterday I spent may day and into the evening at a commercial shoot for the Mesa Riverview Mall in of course Mesa, AZ.
Mesa Riverview is a grouping of strip malls and free standing buildings consisting of many stores and restaurants such as Bass Pro Shop, Home Depot, Office Max, Chilies and the new Toby Keith restaurant to name a few.
The cool thing about this place is the transformation that takes place from daytime to nighttime due to the layout of colorful neon and incandescent lighting that makes this place come alive.
Above is a photo of the CineMark theatre which I took towards the end of my time there and is a great spot to photography if you like to shoot available light slow shutter speed stuff.
Note: Remember that you can also click on any of these images on this blog which will allow you to see the photo at a larger size so feel free click away.

It was a nice day to be outside but did get a little warm in the sun by late afternoon.
