Getting inspired & working on a new studio…

Been watching Fashion Photographer Peter Coulson‘s youtube and getting inspired about my garage studio I’m working on. The idea of shooting in the garage has been on my mind for maybe a week or two. Ceilings are high enough for backdrop to disappear, but there is a good deal of hanging crap around. Still that stuff shouldn’t cause much of an issue 🤞🏼. How will … Continue reading Getting inspired & working on a new studio…

New lenses – Brightin Star, Sigma and Tamron.

I got the Brightin Star 35mm f1.7 in 2020 because I was getting tired of a Kiron 28mm f2 on an adapter that stuck out just too far. As you can see the Brightin is quite small and fits really nice on the a6000’s body. Other benefits with this lens it offers being able to take pretty close shots w/o using closeup filters. The next … Continue reading New lenses – Brightin Star, Sigma and Tamron.

Got some broken cameras from ebay…

The Sony NEX-6 was the first broken camera although the seller stated it was in good working order, but they had used with its auto settings, so they didn’t know that it’s control dial was broken. Around the same time I got an e mount to md mount adapter because I wanted to see if I could use any of my old Minolta MD Mount … Continue reading Got some broken cameras from ebay…

2 Shows this April!

Starfish Studios: Retrospective Back in 2008 I was a member of Starfish Studios… I was only there for a month and this was mainly because the studio had no heat (space heater) and it’s windows didn’t shut (suicide windows). Other than that I would have loved to stay longer at Starfish Studios because the building was the famous 619 Western building in the heart of … Continue reading 2 Shows this April!

Last month I got a seasonal portrait studio job…

Every successful photographer I’ve known whose making a living in photography has worked in them. In my past I have desired to be the photographer but oddly ended up as a lab rat instead. This time the adv said that I would be both a photographer and sales person but most of my job is selling, customer service and very little photography. Maybe it’s a … Continue reading Last month I got a seasonal portrait studio job…

Well not really that is if you use Gmail app for your email on your iOS device you can send the email you want to print to google drive get the supported … Continue reading Is it possible to print with iOS?

Sorry for being so late with the entry…

I have done some shoots but far less than previously because since moving from Seattle in mid 2011 I’ve had less to photograph. Folks are just different when I live and one of my main models who used to travel down to Olympia moved to LA for fashion design school last summer. September I ventured to Seattle for my 5th Bunka fashion college show. Went … Continue reading Sorry for being so late with the entry…

Bonice Aug 4

Bon­ice is a new Mod­el­may­hem model I found in April. It doesn’t nor­mally take me 4 months to do a shoot but I was hav­ing abdom­i­nal pain and had to have gall­blad­der surgery in June so I’ve been recov­er­ing from that. The shoot was a basic 3–4 looks model test in 3–4 or more Seat­tle locations. Continue reading Bonice Aug 4
