Some Like It Scott

So a while back I came up with this photo idea. When I say a while back what I really mean is 7 yrs ago I came up with this photo concept. Once I came up with the idea I instantly came up with reasons on why it couldn’t be done. The idea soon faded into my mind. One day I was writing down ideas for photo shoots during a brain dump and this little gem came back to me.  I started to think about all the opportunities I had to actually create this image over the past 7 years. So I said enough is enough and I went out and made it happen! The point I am trying to make is…MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!! Just get it done!

Water Ballet Behind the Scenes

This shoot presented some challenges you normally don’t run into with most shoots. But leave it to me to say ” I have an idea!, I want to have a ballerina jumping through a wall of water” Well it would have just dies there, but I told LuAndra, and Caleb and they wanted to try it. We tracked down Katia Garza a seasoned ballet dancer for the Orlando Ballet! She was amazing! Here are a few shots from behind the camera!

The set up! We made the water fall out of a 12' PVC pipe from home depot with two water hose attachments on each end. We then zip tied the pipe to an old backdrop stand I had.

A Fresh Start

To make way for newer and more exciting projects we are starting our website over! Out with the old and in with the new. Over the past 2 years Caressa and I have been fine tuning our skills and trying to display our progress on a our old site that was built to show off weddings and other sessions. This worked at first, but soon we realized that our work was getting bigger, better and more dramatic! It needed a new home that would complement the images we are creating.

This new site and platform will provide such a home for our work! Like a well framed photograph, this site will be noticed but not over power the true star of the show! Thank you for stopping by and thank you for your continuing support during our growth as individuals, a company, and most importantly a family!

Love, Rich & Caressa

PSW 2012 in Washington D.C.

This was my first trip to the capitol of our great nation! I have to admit that it was a bit overwhelming, both emotionally and physically. I arrived at the hotel around 4pm, checked in, threw my stuff in my room, grabbed my camera and started my first walk around. I was on a mission to see the cherry blossoms that were in full bloom due to some late rain. I never found the cherry blossoms that night but got some great shots of the Washington memorial during sunset.

The next day I woke up and spent the whole day walking around before the Photoshop World Pre conference orientation. That day I walked 13.25 miles! I had no idea how carried away I would get taking pictures, and not to mention how spread out everything was. But I had to see the classics! 

Here is a gallery of a few image I liked from my long walk!
