TPC at Summerlin Las Vegas

Jul

I have been meaning to post these images from Sean and Madeline’s wedding not too long ago. They were a fantastic couple to work with and they have a great sense of style. Madeline’s unique dress fit well with the setting at the Tournament Players Club (TPC at Summerlin). The location was beautiful and it was a perfect day with just a few clouds in the sky. The couple had great chemistry and were quite natural in front of the camera. I had no trouble getting tons of great shots of these two.

Las Vegas Photographer

Several months ago, PhotoPlus Magazine contacted me to be the featured photographer in an article for their May 2009 issue. The section, called “The PhotoPlus Apprentice”, connects a professional photographer with a photo enthusiast who hopes to gain some insight in an area of specialized photography. I was the pro, and my apprentice was Gordon Holyoak, a semi-retired dentist from Arizona. The assignment was to capture city lights at night, so we headed to the Las Vegas strip where I spent a few hours teaching him the basics of nighttime photography.

While the British editors from PhotoPlus Magazine documented the evening, I focused on teaching and instructing my “apprentice” about how to better use his equipment, the effects of shutter speed, and advanced composition for nighttime photography. Over the course of just a few hours, I was able to assist Gordon with improving on some of his old techniques and to his credit, he was a very quick learner. It is great knowing that he was able to leave the shoot with some newly acquired knowledge that will hopefully allow him to take his photography to the next level.

Overall, the shoot went great and afterwards we decided to reward ourselves with something special for all the hard work. Since the guys from PhotoPlus were visiting the States for the first time, they were interested in trying something “American”, and what could be more American than an In-N-Out burger? These Brits from across the pond had never had a real American burger before, and their first encounter with the classic California style burger was “spot on”.

Everyone <3′s a photobooth

Jul

There is something about squeezing into a small space and hamming it up for the camera that people seem to love. We recently set up our version of a photobooth for Jeff and Holly’s wedding at the Bali Hai Golf Club and everyone had a blast (see photos for proof). Besides the beautiful, amazingly down-to-earth couple and the gorgeous venue, there was a fun loving group of family and friends who kept us laughing the entire time.

The photobooth was staffed with a photographer who interacted with the guests to create fun, quirky photos. What made it particularly unique was that we also printed 4×6′s on the spot. Holly and Jeff wanted to use the photos in a guest album, and with our onsite printing services we were able to print the photos in less than 15 seconds for guests to sign and place in the album as well as a copy to take home as a gift from the newlyweds.

The whole setup took very little space and was obviously a big hit with the all the guests as even the bride’s grandparents got into the act with some fun and crazy images. Jeff and Holly, thanks for a great time and for being so easy to work with. Hope you two had fun in Paris. John.
