Exciting News!!

I am very excited!! I recently received a gift in the mail and I was so shocked when I opened it. It was the recently published book "Professional Portrait Photography: Techniques and Images from Master Photographers" by author and photographer Lou Jacobs Jr.
About a year and a half ago Lou contacted me by phone at the studio requesting an interview for a book he was writing. After spending several minutes assuring him that he had the wrong person, he finally convinced me to participate. So began the process of several question and answer sessions via e-mail. Well, anyway it had all taken place so long ago that I had practically forgotten about the book . . . therefore the surprise when it showed up!!
Anyway, the book covers 10 photographers from all over the country who specialize in portrait photography. I really still am not sure how I was chosen for this project but I am so honored to be a part of the book. Thanks Lou!! Anyway here are a few pages from the chapter in the book in which I am profiled.

Scott Prom

I hope the old saying is true . . ."better late than never." I have been so busy lately trying to meet all of my deadlines that I am delayed in posting photos from the Scott High School Prom. Yeah, I know I am the worst blogger ever . . . but please stay with me as I am trying to improve.

Everyone looked so wonderful and as usual danced the night away. (As I said before when I was in high school we were lame and sat around doing nothing.) Congrats go out to Cindy and Miguel who were voted Prom King and Queen!! Anyway, here are a few candids from the evening's events. Enjoy!!

I have an upcoming seminar coming up in Dayton. I have had several calls recently about the seminar so I thought I'd post the details on the blog. If you are interested in signing up (there are a few spots left) you can e-mail Chuck Shade at See you in Dayton!!!!

Dream Light

Wow! I just got a new toy and it is AWESOME!! I purchased it some months ago for next year's senior sessions and I just now got around to getting it put together and working. It's called a Dream Light and although it is quite ugly in appearance, it produces some unbelievable effects. I tried it out on Saturday with Katherine in her Prom dress and I was so excited with the results! If there are any seniors from this year who would like to have a Prom dress session with this amazing light, call at the studio and tell them you want a Dream Light session.

Hey, I was working on finishing several orders for some of the 08 seniors and came across this page I created for Kortni Bailey's coffee table book. I had to share with everyone because I absolutely love this car! Isn't it awesome??!!
