Cowgirls like photos too...

I have wanted to do a "Cowgirl" photoshoot for quite some time.  Between finding the right model who is comfortable with horses, and a horse who is willing to put up with the lights and posing the project has been patiently waiting.  Well, thanks to this beautiful model, Winnie, I got to spend a little time at a barn doing a "Cowgirl" photoshoot.  I had my boyfriend assist me to help with the lighting and photo set up.  Winnie let us shoot at the barn where she boards and use her horse in some of the shots, for his first photo shoot he did quite well.  Here are a couple samples from that day.

I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this incredibly kind and beautiful woman.  She is an absolute pleasure to work with and I love working with her, I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed making them on that lovely fall day.

Oahu 2012

I was fortunate enough to go to Oahu, HI in 2012...I have recently found out I will be returning to Hawai'i, but to a different island.  Here is a photo I took while checking out an amazing Sea Cave on my last day in Oahu, HI.

This photographer is incredibly wonderful!

Here is the January issue of Rangefinder with an article on Nashville, TN Chuck Arlund.  Very nice and talented guy!

A Rainy Sunday Spent Underground

Something I like to do is photograph caves.  I like the lighting challenge, I like the results when things turn out well and the adventure that goes with it.  I was fortunate enough to get out to a local TN cave with a group of cavers from the Nashville Grotto.  I was even more fortunate to have the images turn out so well!

A big thanks to my caver models and those who were patient and waited while I set up my shots!

Nashville, TN Who Knew?

Here is a view of downtown Nashville from one of the taller buildings.  I had an opportunity to photograph a 9/11 Memorial event and this was a shot I got to take while things were winding down.

Nashville, who knew I would be here so long.  I am hoping, hoping, hoping to finally coordinate a couple photo workshops in 2013.  I have been wanting to do this for at least 3 years.  I am waiting to hear back from one photographer and while I wait I have been starting to draw up plans for this fall.  We shall see, I really hope it comes together.
Maybe I will actually make some progress and accomplish some projects that have been collecting dust this year?  Until then, eat, sleep, drink, be merry and take pictures...
