Here’s Johnny!

So I’m a few days late, so what.

As promised, here’s a few images showing the wonderful toys i got last week from my lighting sponsor, Photogenic!

I got a StudioMax AKC320A which is a plug in 300w strobe. An AKC320B which is a plugin AND battery powered strobe. An AKB Battery pack and the two big boys, a Photogenic 1250 and 1250DR.

Today I had a shoot with Tony and Jon, the first thing they said was “woow those modeling lights are BRIGHT” Before I would use my Photogenic PL600 and another brand for kicker lights. Today, I used all photogenic and the room was LIT ya’ll! I’ll post some photos of that later.

Colorado SuperShoots is currently the only photography workshop that’s sponsored by Photogenic, an honor I don’t take lightly!

Photogenic is in the building!

I didn’t think my strobes would get here until tomorrow or wednesday at the latest. I had such a crazy weekend this past weekend that I actually forgot about them! Today I was sitting around the house chilling, fighting with my oldest when the door bell rang. We’re expecting a 6×6 mom brag book for a client in my general portrait photography business and I went to the door expecting that. Boy was I surprised when it was the package from Photogenic!!

Gonna keep you on pins and needles to find out what came in the box. I told you I was sponsored and I knew what I was getting last week but didn’t tell ya.


Yes, I’m an ass I know this.

My buddy

I don’t really like sharing much of my personal life with people, mostly because it’s my personal life hah. But, my baby girl is my best buddy! I love her tons. 

Today, I got a package in the mail *yay* and she was there to help me open it.

She kept jumping in pulling things out, I almost hit her ripping into the box, so more out of being scared than angry I yelled at her to “move honey” and she looked at me and gave me this look:


Then said “Daddy, I see?”

Love my girls!

Colorado supershoot, it’s a wrap!

Hey all,

Yesterday marked the end to the first workshop of 2009. It was a good workshop I believe?

I implemented my “monitors” and they worked out great. Much thanks to Tony, Mike and Jon. You guys were awesome in controlling your groups and so far, the feed back I heard has been great. No one was thrown out, so that’s always a great thing lol.

As I made my way through the rooms, everyone was laughing and having fun, and out of no where, a “friendly” competitive game ensued! It quickly became a “Now go back to your room, your team misses you” type element. Hell, I was even through out of BOTH teams’ room for a minute…in MY studio! I had to go get refreshments since I had no where to go!

My old Photogenic PowerLight 600 strobe died:(need to replace the flash tube. I didn’t get my new sponsored Photogenic heads in time, I’m expecting them to show up tomorrow. My Powerlight 600 I got used and it still fired off well over 13k photos for me…even surviving a fall in the lake!

Here’s a few photos from this weekend, I had an all day seminar/shoot today, so I’m wiped.
