I wanted to post this last week before I left town to shoot my first wedding. I've assisted several times and have Robin to thank for providing me the opportunity to be her assistant and second shooter at several weddings over the last year. I'm just starting to edit the photos from last weekend's wedding and won't get into it here as it deserves it own post. This is just a quick recap on a wedding I shot last September that prepared me for my first solo destination wedding shoot.
You may remember the 2 part post I did on Krista's shoot a couple months ago. This is a follow up. I knew when I did the shoot that I wanted to do a composite. In other words, I wanted to take Krista's photo and replace the white background with another more visually interesting background. Here's the process I went through to get this piece for my portfolio.
One of my assignments this past year was to exclusively photograph one child during the IronKids triathlon. His dad is a teammate of mine in the Atlanta Triathlon Club and he wanted to make sure he got great shots of his son during the competition.
This post doesn't have anything to do with photography. The only connection is that I designed the kit (race uniform) for More Than Sport organization.
If you've read my bio, then you know I have a background in graphic design as well as an interest in triathlon.
There's been a lull in my blogging as of late and for that I apologize. I will be catching up in the next couple of weeks as I've got big news. I'll hold off the major one until later, but for now, I'll let you know that I'm planning on redesigning and relaunching my website and will move off Blogger onto my own blog right off my site. That's going to take a while, but it'll all makes sense in a couple weeks when I make the announcement and start off on a new adventure. You'll understand when you find out about the adventure.
Took longer than I expected to get back to blogging. I finished up my marathon training and completed my first marathon and then took some time to support and photograph my teammates down in Panama City Beach at Ironman Florida. I've had a couple shoots sprinkled in between and I'll get to those posts in the future.
I'm really excited about sharing images from this shoot for several reasons. This is the first time I was contacted by a celebrity for a photo shoot. Not a big time celebrity, but a celebrity none the less. She was on Survivor for several weeks last season. Krista Klumpp was the head cheerleader for Auburn University before appearing on Survivor. I had watched the show that season, but missed several shows early on. I did a Google search and found plenty of sites with her photo, most of them had the same photo used on the Survivor website and a couple from her cheerleading days.
This was a fun assignment and not my typical shoot. It was a pleasure to shoot for several reasons. First of all, I know Kurt through his wife Sabrina. I used to be Sabrina's boss when I worked in TV as an Art Director. I must have been an okay boss, because we remain friends and I photographed her sons' birthday party earlier in the year.
