Perfect end to an eventual week

January 11, 2013  •  Leave a Comment


This has been such an amazing week for me. I was able to get two new models onboa for a photo shoot I have been wanting to do for quite some time. It's a Danger Girls themed shoot and it is sure to turn some heads.


I was also able to work with the beautiful and talented model Kerri Grabill
. She is such a joy to work with and always lots of laughs. I really look forwars to working with her again in the future and watch her career soar.

To top it all off Sunday January 13th 2013 we will attend a tour of the Pink Bridal Show in Knoxville TN. and get informa about setting up a booth for their next show. 2013 is shaping up to be our best year yet. Next blog post will be an introduction to a few of the models that will be featured here and hopefully some finised photos of Kerri Grabill.



Remember 9/11

September 10, 2012  •  1 Comment









     I remember where I was and what I was doing like it was yesterday. Sitting at work listening to the radio and when the first report came in I thought it was a joke. I was listening to the Mancow morning show and they often played jokes on their listeners but this was too much. By the time the second plane hit there was no doubt that we were under attack. Many of my co-workers were distraught and our S.O.B. of a boss only wanted us to get back to work. I was just waiting for my phone to ring and hear my First Sargent say "get your gear, were going to war" but that call did not come, at least not that day.





The whole thing was just so surreal, I couldn't believe what I was hearing and all I could think about was how many people are dead and are there any more attacks still to come. I also thought  about my family and wether or not I would have to go off to war and leave them behind. Who would take care of them? Who would protect them now that terrorists had come to our shores? Was that selfish of me when so many thousands of families had lost there loved ones and would never see them again?

I don't know to be quite honest.










The Pentagon



Then I heard that the Pentagon had been hit and that many of my fellow soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines had been killed. At this point anger took over and all I wanted to know was who did this and when are we going after them. I didn't care what race they were or what country they were from. I just wanted to do something, anything instead of feeling so helpless.


I didn't actually get to see any of the video footage until I got home that afternoon and I still wonder why I didn't leave and go home. I guess we were all in shock and disbelief that it had even happened.



How glad I am that we had a great man in the White house when this tragedy occured.


We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail.
George W. Bush, Speech after 9/11 attacks




Never Forget, Always remember for if you do not it will happen again.

Cyc wall in a weekend?

September 09, 2012  •  Leave a Comment
        You may ask yourself the same question I did when I was searching for ways to improve my small home studio. What is a cyclorama wall a.k.a cyc wall? I had seen them many times but never knew what they were called. There are tons of tutorials out there on how to build them but basically you get a curved, seamless, ocean of white for your models to pose in front of. This type of background is great for all sorts of photography where you just want the model and maybe some props in the shot.

The folks over at EyeHandy.com have created a sexy and entertaining video (as they always do) that is also very informative. Check out the video below and if you can get past the practically naked model Ashley the information and technique in the video is very well done and useful. You may want to watch the video a couple times to make sure that you haven't missed any of the details.
