Here is Beatriz who just happens to be a relative of the girl below Dianne whose event I shot last weekend.

Most of the shots I put here are shot the day of their event and are printed and displayed at the event so people can view it as they come in.

The shots just get a quick edit and then I print them on a HP 8550 printer.

Yesterday was a long 10hr shoot for me on Dianne's 15th birthday celebration.

Though I LOVE being a photographer 10hrs is a little long for me. I usually do 8hr shoots which for me is much easier to handle...Especially when it is 110 outside

This color dress choice she is wearing is a great color to shoot and I think she wore it very well.

All in all a good shoot.

Another day another workshop taught. This little guy is a Burrowing Owl and is only about 8" tall. He came out to check out a corn snake that was lurking around.

I never realized that there are owls that burrow into the ground but think it's pretty cool.

Nature never ceases to amaze me.

Photography Workshops

As the summer is moving along the demand for my photography workshops has been increasing steadily.

It seams more and more people are purchasing Digital SLR's and joining the ranks of existing photographers.

Some are new moms looking to document their children's lives while others are more interested in things such as nature and wildlife photography, yet others are looking to hone their skills in the hope of becoming a professional photographer one day.

Whatever the situation may be photography is as popular as ever.

This image was taken by me today at the Phoenix Zoo while teaching two students the fundamentals of photography in my DSLR Photography 101 Workshop. The zoo is my favorite place to teach and my students seem to learn the quickest there.
