No Rules Workshop – Norfolk Photography Workshop
So we spilled the beans at our latest workshop as we met some real neat folks and dished out some serious knowledge. We just happened to have a most amazing model for the day as we explored the streets around our studio and messed around with some lights in the studio too. Thanks to Erin, our model for turning on her glam for us! Stay tuned for our next workshop as we may be headed your way soon, check it out here – www.norulesworkshop.com.

Norfolk Workshop! – Our “No Rules Workshop” Stays Local
Okay, Okay! We get it….all this traveling is wearing us out and our local peeps were missing out on all the fun while we taught around the nation. Our “No Rules Workshop” dives into the details of running your business as well as opening up our studio for some shooting and editing instruction. We’ll have models and a couple of choice locations to shoot in so bring you cameras and computers! Our first local workshop was such a success we just had to do it again. Seats are limited and filling fast but you can purchase your tickets right online HERE.
Meanwhile, here’s a few shots from some recent workshops!
Palm Springs, California, Riviera Hotel – Dustin & Missy’s Couples Shoot!
We winged our way out west to the spectacular Riviera Resort in Palm Springs, California for a shoot and it turned out to be just what my jet lag needed! A fun and somewhat “experimental” shoot using a variety of lighting techniques including, video lights, ambient, off-camera flash, ringlight, and reflectors…that about covers it all. Thanks Dustin & Missy for joining us and getting your groove on for this long distance shoot – you rock!
SYNC 2011 – No Rules Workshop
St. Petersburg, Florida….love that town. We carried our cold and weary bodies to the sunshine state to hang out with 400 of the craziest photographers on the planet. I mean, these guys & gals are serious about their photography and their business! It just felt weird to be shooting on the beach in February – I know I heard my camera say, “What the…?” until Alexis popped in front of it! Alexis was our model for the afternoon as we strolled around the Tradewinds resort for our shooting workshop. She did fabulous especially considering all the cameras pointing her way! We’re back in Norfolk now with snow & slush today but I think I will post some sunny pics of Alexis to warm our cold toes. Ahhh….
Meredith – Senior Photography for the Vintage at Heart…..
A 2011 Senior model that is a photographers dream. Need I say more? She’s just that good! She had a vintage vibe to her so we worked that into our shoot with a 1920’s Amelia Earhart kinda look. It was a surprise to all of our models when we arrived at our various locations but when we ended up at the Military Aviation Museum she was thrilled. But wait there’s more – Out came the 1941 Stearman and it was a little bit of heaven for Meredith. We splurge a bit on our senior models but it’s so worth it since they are our ambassadors in all the local high schools. We are always on the look out for unique and exciting locations for our photo shoots and this was a homerun for both us and for Meredith!
Check her out for yourselves!
Natalie’s Modeling Portfolio
It’s always awesome to see old friends come back for their photos. In this case it was a senior from 2008 – Natalie! We shot her senior pics a few years ago and now she is an aspiring model. We did a few shots in our studio for her model portfolio and I don’t think the world knows what they’re in for! Natalie has a bright future ahead of her and we can’t wait to see where this road takes her. Hang on Natalie!
Michelle – Senior Model 2010
An adventure was in store when we met Michelle. We toured the countryside with her and took a few pictures along the way. Michelle is such a free spirit and we had a great time photographing her! Biplanes, beaches, fashion shoot in the studio – you name it and she was up for it! Michelle is another one of our 2011 Senior Models so keep an eye out for her in your school next year!
Olivia-Senior Model 2010
She is way smarter than you and way prettier than me. That about sums up our 2011 model, Olivia. So, just give up now and be happy with second place. She’s got first all wrapped up. Behold the awesomeness….
SPA model 2010 – Brittany!
Brittany comes from the cold plains of North Dakota courtesy of Aspen Studios. She joined us in San Diego for SPA 2010 and we spent the afternoon with her on the sunny beaches of Coronado. Here’s a few shots from our day cruising around the Hotel Del Coronado!
SPA model 2010 – Aubree!
Yes, call me a California wannabe. We winged our way out to San Diego for the 2010 Senior Portrait Artists (SPA) convention last week and came back energized and excited about what we were going to do in 2010 for our seniors! The fabulous Hotel del Coronado provided a backdrop for our shooting workshop with our senior models, Aubree and Brittany. They were both amazing and the California sand & sun gave us all kinds of opportunities for some great shooting. Thanks to SPA for inviting us to San Diego to give folks a taste of what our workshops are like. Stay tuned for a few shots of Brittany tomorrow!
