    This will be my third year volunteering for the local Help-Portrait event. Not surprisingly, this event has grown each year and we are able to bless more and more people in need. With a talented pool of photographers, assistants, hair & makeup artists and many others, we are able to create professional portraits for hundreds of people who wouldn’t otherwise have this opportunity. But even with our talents and time, these events simply cannot happen without donations to cover the costs of printing, paper, CDs, and frames.

    If you have a little to spare, we would greatly appreciate your help: donate to the Minneapolis Help-Portrait event. The money donated using this link goes directly to help cover the costs at the event that I and others in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area are hosting. Thank you!

    Here are a few selects from my studio session with Kaci, who was looking to build her portfolio.  She was looking for a wide variety of looks and I think we accomplished that.  This was my first session at the “cove” in our new studio at work and I gotta say I like this room a lot – gives me a lot of options depending upon how many lights I want to use and it’s easy hauling props in and out.  Kaci is a natural in front of the camera, wouldn’t you agree?

    Harley is a local singer, songwriter, actor and model.  About the only thing he can’t do is take portraits, so I guess that’s where I come in.  I enjoy getting the chance to bust out the studio lights and take some headshots and semi-formal portraits.  As much as I like natural light photography, having complete control over the lighting is a good thing sometimes.

    After a few days of rainy weather in Nashville, I finally had a nice day to take some photos downtown with Shane Martin.  Downtown Nashville was a great place to walk around with a camera – interesting buildings and textures to play with.  Fresh off of his performance at the Texaco Country Showdown at the historic Ryman Auditorium, Shane was excited to get some updated photos and also to see where the national exposure of the Showdown will take him.  My guess: pretty far!  Shane plays live solo and full-band shows all around the Minneapolis-St. Paul area and a few other interesting venues across the state. Check him out sometime and support your local musicians: www.shanemartin.com

    World Wide Photo Walk, that’s what. 28,000 photographers of all skill levels meeting up in over 1100 small groups all over the world with one purpose: walk around and take pictures. But it’s more than that. It’s meeting new people with similar interests (photo geeks), learning something new, and making connections. The walk I participated in this year was in Chaska and wasn’t the typical photo walk. We had two models to shoot, which gave many people a chance to learn a few new things about lighting, posing and interacting with models. Here’s a few of my shots of Rob:
