Family Portrait Session at Tustin Ranch Golf Club

Hi Friends, Had a blast working with the Weinstein family this week!  They used the pretense of a family portrait shoot to get everyone together for a big family BBQ – something they’ve apparently not been able to do in a while.  We shot at the beautiful Tustin Ranch Golf Club, and many thanks are […]

Gamer…the Portrait

Hi Friends, In between client work, it’s important to keep the creative juices flowing. Having been subject to hours of squealing tires, revving engines, explosions, and apparent talking to himself (with the online games), I thought I’d try to capture some of the essence of the gaming experience with my son as prime portrait candidate. […]

More Family Portraits – Orange Circle

Hi Friends, Trying to stock up for family calendar photos for this year (which reminds me, I gotta start pulling the calendar together soon!). We draw a few odd looks carting camera bag, C-stand, sandbag, and softbox down the sidewalk near at the Orange Circle, but I like the way they turned out, so I […]

Family Portrait Session

The bane of most photographers is that we seldom show up in our own family portraits-for obvious reasons. So, when my folks asked for a new family photo, I took the opportunity to “schedule” a session with my wife and kids.  We trekked over to a local elementary school that has a favorite red wall […]

High-Key Studio Setup for Full Length Portraits

I’ve never really liked the seamless paper rolls — specifically, I’ve never liked having my subjects stand on them.  They get dirty, they tear, and […]
