Best part about winter is running around in the snow with a camera!
I love Autumn. I think all photographers do. Part of it is the early evenings that spawn gorgeous sunsets, and of course, let’s not forget those trees that take on an aura of fire as their leaves change color. So it’s always a little bitter-sweet when the fall rains (and snow!) force all the foliage to the ground, leaving the trees to resemble skeletons. Fortunately, most photographers, including myself, also love the snow and ready or not, it’s right around the corner!
In the past, I’ve had the pleasure to work both in front of, and behind the camera. This time around, however, it was my brother-in-law’s time to be in front of the lens. He (a local Veterinarian) was given a chance to play on the new Skype-based game show, Let’s A$K America! I got to hang out in his office and take pictures of his experience while the show was being taped. It’s nice to see the Hollywood timeline hasn’t changed much – taking well over 3 hours to record a 15 minute segment.
And while he didn’t win the mega-bucks, he did use his time on camera to promote some worthy animal causes such as cat adoption and dog rescue.
I had the amazing pleasure to work with Andrew Hackett this past weekend. Andrew is half of a power couple (The other half being Carol Briney) who have started a new organization that helps at-risk children and their families. An amazing and personable person with an equally awe-inspiring history, Andrew has a lot of personal-life experience that he uses to reach kids and adults who would be otherwise unreachable.
