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.
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!
