MY PHOTOSHOOT WITH PERSONAL TRAINER HALEY KATE

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I wanted to share my recent photoshoot from last weekend with personal trainer and fitness model Haley Kate. It was our first photoshoot and we shot in the area of Pasadena, CA. We shot in the late afternoon using both natural light and a speedlight. We captured beautiful photos with her beautiful physique in a variety of outfits including fitness and fashion. We captured some great photos highlighting her physique and had an opportunity to shoot with a pet dog named Langston who got in the photoshoot with Haley for little bit. She was fun to work with. Can't wait to show some more edited pics from this shoot soon. Have a great day.

Last week I had the gracious opportunity to work with a fitness competitor on her first outdoor photoshoot before her fitness competition on Saturday July 21, 2018 in Redondo Beach, CA. Her name is Hidalia and she was great to work with. She was very fun and outgoing and we captured overall beautiful photos showcasing her hard work of her physique for the camera and her upcoming show.

My super packed weekend at PhotoconLA 2018

Hello everyone,  I just got back a little while ago from my first visit at the Photocon in the Los Angeles, California area. Photocon consists of variety of classes and panels within the creative arts field such as photo and video along with an expo you can purchase and sample items. I was at this event for all 3 days since this Friday.  I benefited from this a variety of ways with the knowledge I acquired from some of the speakers, received my new complimentary headshot shot by pro photographer Bobbi Lane which I'll be using for my new rebrand. I also printed three large prints of my work consisting of birds, landscapes and a yoga sunset featuring Jeanette Ortega of Extreme results fitness and her new Bootoga.  Her yoga sunset piece will be part of a raffle this coming week for a fundraiser to raise funds for an upcoming trip to Nicaragua in to help orphaned kids and others at a tavern in the San Fernando valley, CA area. Pretty excited about it since it is my first time donating a piece of my work for a special cause. I'm planning to attend this fundraiser for a little bit. I also received more tips on how to handle social media to get more traction and opportunities as well and of course,  more lighting techniques to improve my lighting to its full potential.  It was fulfilling and enjoyed it.  Lastly,  I want to wish everyone a great week ahead of us.  I can't believe we are almost in the middle of June. Time flies! Take care!
