Fashion at its best!

I love it when a plan goes together! Last night I had the pleasure of working with three gorgeous models, a FANTASTIC team of make up artists, a super dress shop, a cool new florist and a videographer that rocks! We all teamed up to provide each other with new cutting edge images that promotes all our businesses. What a TOTAL blast. It is so nice to work with a team of professionals, all with the same goal. We photographed all over downtown Bradenton. A huge thanks to Jerry and First Baptist Church for lending a room for the girls to change. Here are just a few of the 600 images.

Ja MON!!!


I apologize for not keeping my blog updated. I will do better, because I have LOTS to report! First , I really want to tell you about my wedding in JAMAICA in May! My wife and I were honored to spend 4 days with Chelsea Boston and RJ Teahan, along with their families, photographing their fabulous wedding. I photographed Chelsea's sisters wedding a few years ago, and it was like I was a part of the family on this trip. They are incredibly wonderful people, and such fun to photograph. Chelsea and RJ did everything I asked them to do, including getting under a roaring waterfall of cold water! I also went with RJ and his buddies on a fishing trip, where they caught tuna and amber jack. The tuna was grilled by the chef of the resort as soon as we returned. Fantastic. Overall, I think I shot over 3000 images. Here are a few.

A new addition!!!!

A huge congratulations to our studio manager, Nan Scofield and family! She had a baby! Corbin Scofield was born on Sunday, May 25. Nan had Corbin a few weeks early (While I was photographing a wedding in Jamaica- more later!), but both mom and baby are fine! In fact, Nan and her family has already stopped by our studio for their first family portrait. You can see that older brother Cooper is proud of his new sibling.

We miss you, Nan.. HURRY back!

It gives me joy when I get a chance to give back some knowledge that I have learned from other photographers through the years. I recently had the chance to spend a week with 14 photographers at Triangle School of Photography in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The class was receptive to my ideas, and we had a great time. I love to teach, because I learn just as much from the class as they learn from me.

The week before I was honored to be a judge at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International convention. I , along with some of the top wedding photographers in the world, judged over 1200 wedding images in two days. The images were from all over the world. INCREDIBLE experience!

Here are sdome images from my Pittsburgh class.

A chance to relax!

Every once in a while, it's good to just "kick back". I have an incredible extended family, and this year we were all able to get away for Christmas. In fact, I am still on the way back, and this is the first time I have been on the internet since December 23! We spent the time together at a wonderful cabin in Maggie Valley, North Carolina. Of course, I had to capture some images while I was there. I had such fun climbing the hills (and sliding around a bit), with my son Dean, and brother-in-law Scott Maurer.

My wife's parents have "adopted " me since my parents passed away some time ago. I appreciate all their support in my profession. I treasure the moments with her and her family. I hope everyone had as super of a holiday as we had. It even snowed on Christmas!
