Pool & Studio shoot – Newspaper backdrop


It was a meetup event by Melbourne. I am glad that I made to the event even with more than one hour driving. The newspaper backdrop was setup at someone’s garage. What a creative and smart idea! Something different, but not too difficult to make it happen. Here is the behind the scene for the photo shoot.

Newspaper Backdrop behind the scene

There were four models and a dozen photographers. Brandi is the youngest among them who is still a freshmen in high school. Her long gold hair is such a treasure for photographers.  Her blue ocean eyes are big and deep, and I believe there are many boys are crazy about her. She is still a young girl, so when some photographer asked her to do some wild facial expression, I did not really like the idea. I love to show her beautiful face, eyes, skins, but mostly to present the true beauty of a teenager girl.

It is a very successful studio shoot and it made my 1.5 hr one-way driving in a central Florida tornado on the way back total worthwhile.

Commercial Photography | On Location Acupuncture Clinic Professional Website Portraits | Tampa, Florida
Almost forgot about these =). Back in August we were down in Florida for my sister's baby shower and also to take these website portraits for our friend's parent's acupuncture clinic in Tampa, Florida.

I took some interior and a few exterior photos of the building, but the main focus would be headshots to update the roster on the website. Nothing too terribly creative a ...
Jodi Kiely Social Media Portfolio Shoot – Orlando Portrait Photographer
Being the savvy digital communicator she is, our friend Jodi Kiely asked us to help her update her portfolio for use on her various online presences such as Twitter, LinkedIn, and her Blog: Jodi Kiely Communications. More than happy to come out and shoot a model like Jodi, we headed over to her apartment complex to get some professional and candid shots that she could use around the internet. We went to the office center of her apartment complex and got a few "working" shots of Jodi with some props like the laptop at the top and the Blackberry below. We didn't have a firm plan as to what shots we all wanted but knew we wanted a good mix th ...
2010 Atlanta Worldwide Photowalk – Event Photographer in Atlanta
This past Saturday, July 24th was Scott Kelby’s 3rd Annual Worldwide Photowalk which Betty and I participated in in downtown Atlanta! We first signed up for the Orlando walk which was organized to walk through downtown Sanford when sign-ups were first opened. Since our move to Atlanta, of course the Atlanta walk was already maxed out at 50 walkers. Luckily for us the person leading the walk was also the head of the Southeastern Photographic Society, which we had just joined! After shooting Ken a quick email, he gave us the go-ahead to tag along as unofficial walkers J. Packing only one lens each, we headed out at 8:45am down to Centennial Oly ...
