About two weeks ago I got a call from a model I had worked with in the past saying that she was setting up an event at a new studio that was was opening down in Provo. We talked a bit about what was going on and she asked me to come down and do some shooting with some other photographers and models. I don’t think I fully understood exactly what the event was going to entail but I agreed to come if I had time and if school permitted and didn’t really think much about it.
A few days before the actual event I get a call from her asking if I’m coming and that, if I do, she’d arranged for me to be one of the main photographers there and have my own area to setup and shoot in. Cool right? The whole studio area was larger than I had imagined it would be, but I had a nice large area to setup in, plenty of rooms to stick my lights wherever I wanted to and plenty of photographers and models coming and going from my station.
All in all, a good night, met some good photographers and models with the added bonus of lots of good pictures.
This was my first time shooting with Dani Jae, we met up near saltair and shot along the shore or the Great Salt Lake. Take a look at a few of the photos and follow the link to the gallery to see more from the shoot.
For those of you near Salt lake city there was a Photowalk of Temple Square, we had around 15 people there at night in mid December … (read COLD)… the lights were amazing, and despite the cold I had a great time.
As a forward heads up, last I heard there should be a meeting on the 12th of January, some of the group are going to bring some studio lights and pocket wizards and setup a studio lighting try-it-yourself in Draper. According to Rich Legg who arranged to use the Gateway community church sanctuary for the meeting, there will also be a gear sharing table for people to come and try out other cameras, lenses, and other little photographic toy’s plus about 5 models to play with the lighting on.Â Should be a great time to come, experiment and learn.Â Hope to see you there!
