Scott Jarvie391,079UPDATE: it's online now: http://youtu.be/-DItFCAg4jM We like to call this a "PLUS ONE PARTY"Because people submit links to their albums and we look through the pictures and we plus one the pictures we like in the album.It's my way of giving quick feedback to people about which pictures really catch my attention out of their images. It's quick and yet helpful.Last time we looked at over 120 albumsLIVE PUBLIC HANGOUTYep it'll be a live public hangout again.Shorter and more awesome than last time.So if you LINK us an album make sure you know they will be on video and then on youtube. We're both really nice people and with people pictures we worry about commentary for fear they're related to you or something. But we may make commentary and you gotta be alright with that as well. The video won't be edited when it goes onto youtube.I'm basically saying: The easily offended need not applyTHEME = PEOPLE PICTURES+Susan Marinello and myself have a separate project going on where we're spending dozens of hours researching to find great photographers and create the most awesome list of "people shooters"https://plus.google.com/u/0/100962871525684315897/posts/UMBDiPKJqKaSo therefore we've made the theme this time to People pictures as well because that's what mood we're in.If you already have an album like that share it. Or maybe put together another one in the next 24hrs that you'd like us to go through. Professional work, weddings, families, kids, selfies, street candids, models etcJOIN INThis time we'll be linking the albums and having people join us as we go through the pictures... so you may be getting a lot more plus ones (eyeballs) than normal.FAQWe won't be looking at non-people pictures even if they're in the album.We'd rather not look at crazy large albums so try to keep them under 50 (but we can be a bit lenient)Please submit open/public albums specially since other people than myself will be wanting to view.Make sure you're following myself (+Scott Jarvie ) and +Susan MarinelloAlbum Viewing Party - People Themed (A Jarvie Production)2012-09-24 05:00:0078 
Scott Jarvie391,079POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURESIt's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight.This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event.SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINKIt's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all.You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums.Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to.BENEFITWell it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most. I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion.To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks likeON AIRThis will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout.I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing.If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't.SPECIAL GUESTBecause I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things I will have my good friend and great photographer +Susan Marinello on the show to facilitate the discussion.She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well.We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access.DIRECTIONS1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album3.  IMPORTANT If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video.4. Make sure the album is Public access5. Add +Scott Jarvie  +Susan Marinello to your circles6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites.IMPORTANTIt bears repeating:If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video.DShare your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00147

For that reason, I have about 100 people in this circle that I would almost bet you will not share this circle. I also will not add everyone that shares my circle to my shared circles. I have a massive database of trolls and spammers. I am constantly updating that.  They are not here.  It includes about 4000 people. It is constantly updated.  Send people in my circles or communities invites and other spam and you’ll soon find yourself blocked. If they are not following you, I really dislike that.  If you’re doing it, I will know and you will soon be gone.I don’t need to be the number one most shared circle to the point that it means loading you up with a ton of people I wouldn’t follow. I won’t do it.This is a circle made up of mostly of those that are known to share circles. However there are also over 100 profiles with incredible content or promote worthy causes. Most profiles are from those that have shared my circles in the past.To remain in this Circle do this:Plus this post.   Comment on this postShare this CircleAdd this Circle to your circles When you get re-shares of circles that you share, you’ll find that you are in more circles.  It is in your best interest to share it to your stream and tell others about the benefits of shared circles. Are You New to Circle Sharing?Here are some quick tips for you. When you add a circle, many of the people in it will add you back.  Many more will if you have a profile picture of your face. To further improve on that complete your tagline and employment fields found in your profile. Instead of saying you work for IBM or Walgreen’s tell us something about you in that field. What you do at your job or what you’d like to do. It doesn’t matter. What I want to know is what you are interested in on Google Plus.  You’re profile should tell us about what kinds of post you make.The other day, someone told me some of the people that add the circle will delete it. She’s right, they will. So what you need to do is engage with the people you add. Leave comments on their post. When you do your name shows up and if you keep doing it you will get their attention and even those that delete will keep you in their circles more often. Those that don’t, probably are not worth your efforts.Also, for those post that you like or think your audience (followers and potential followers) will enjoy, share those post. When you share another person’s post you should plus tag the person that shared and it and the person that originally posted it. If you don’t do this, they will likely never know you shared it. If they do know they might come by and plus or comment on your share. How do you plus tag? Type the plus sign and then without a space start typing their name. This works best if you add them to your circles before you plus tag them. As you type their name, G+ will offer suggestions of people on G+. When it finds the person you just circled, click their name and you’re done. Now they should get a notification that you mentioned them in a post and they can go straight to your post and view your profile. Google wouldn’t be showing us the number of profile views if it wasn’t important. Google is trying to get us to improve our postings. I believe that’s the main reason they recently added it to our profile.  It’s a caret. Read between the lin2014-05-02 08:55:50452101017

Gailen Mapes63,132Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  N-Q - 28 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-04-28 10:26:381507113

Oy Vey!

My husband Fred
 
I get a chuckle when people tell me that I COULD charge for my portraits.
I interpret this as, they think my work is good enough that other people would pay money for it. If money exchanged hands, I would then be validated and so would my work.
 
I know when people say this to me, they are just being nice and it is meant solely as a compliment. But I often wonder about the value of something when it costs a lot of money as opposed to when it is given away for free.
 
When I was first introduced to Sue Bryce and her style of portraiture, I was in awe. I immediately wanted to emulate her style. I studied her posing techniques and would practice them on friends any chance I could get. I would show my guinea pigs examples of Sues’ work and tell them how much I idolized her and her style. I would always mention that heraver... more »

Such an honor to receive a visit from +Alex Koloskov and his wife +Genia Larionova!

I have been following them both since I started with studio lighting and I am constantly in awe of the stunning work that they produce.

It's always a special occasion to photograph another photographer and I am so honored that Alex allowed me the opportunity.

I wish them much success with their relocation to California and hope that one day our paths' cross again.

Alex is the co-owner of one of my favorite restaurants in town, The Bit & Spur.
 
So next time you're in Zion, stop by, have dinner and say 'Hi' to the guy with the pony tail.
 
Make sure to tell him that he looks good in photos :)

Thanks to +Peter Hurley, most of you know by now the importance of having your subjects squint their eyes.

Here is a side by side comparison to illustrate the impact that just a slight squint makes.

Model: Leon Lewis

Leon is a local legend in these parts. After living here in Springdale for the past 15 years, I had only just met Leon for the first time last week when he wandered into our bike shop to see if Fred could fix the wheel to his horse cart. Fred instantly recognized him as he was getting out of his pick up truck and we were both excited at the prospect of meeting the legend in person. He was just as sweet as I imagined and as we were chatting in the shop, I was envisioning him in my studio. During conversation, Leon mentioned his daughter Vaneta, who I know, but had no idea that she was his daughter. I messaged Vaneta after he left and asked her if she thought Leon would be interested in having a portrait done.

This image is the result  :)

Model: Kaila Smith
 
Kaila is a young lady from the 'hood who allowed me the honor to photograph her. Just a wonderful subject. I am sorry that she will be moving away for college in a couple of weeks, but I consider it a privilege to have had at least one shoot with her.
 
Best of luck to you, Kaila!
 
I've fallen behind in posting, not for lack of images, but rather due to lack of words.

Although I am guilty of posting images on more than a few occasions with nothing more in the description than the lighting info, I always feel terrible doing so. Probably because it is a disappointment when I see images I like from others with nothing more but the same.

I want to know more about the image, something... anything.

Nate Whitlatch

The art of #portraiture  is making the subject look interesting. This is not always easy to do. Wardrobe, themes, props, posing and expression all play major roles.
 
On rare occasions, the subject doesn't need any of those things to make them look interesting. They just ARE interesting, all by themselves.
 
Nate is one of those rarities.

Model - Lorin Whitaker

I've been doing a lot of themed shoots lately. While they're fun and a nice departure from the simpler portraits I normally do, they are just so much work and planning.

Sometimes, when I stumble upon a look that I like, I'll repeat the same look with different subjects. I find it usually takes a few times to really nail the look anyway and each subject has something different to offer. An example of the repeated theme is the red bird, which by the way, I feel I have not yet perfected. Now I want to repeat the mime theme. I love the white face make up so much. If I had my way, I'd do the mime look with every subject. It just makes the image look so theatrical. I also think it helps to relax the subject, because they can hide behind a 'mask'. I see myself overdoing it to the point where it will get old, but whatever... as long as I... more »

I see myself overdoing it to the point where it will get old, but whatever... as long as I still like it :)

I had a shoot scheduled with Dan, a friend who is a local guide, but his trip went late and he had to reschedule at the last minute. I was all prepared and had made a few changes to my set up, so I was anxious to test it out. I gave Lorin a ring and he gladly obliged and came over with no notice. It is wonderful to have such a fun and animated subject to practice on, like Lorin.

The change to the set up was moving the table (again) onto the side of the studio with the Oliphant backdrop. I was going crazy, still having to shoot on the seamless paper when I had the most beautiful custom canvas backdrop just 2 yards away going unused. I tried previously to move the table, but was dissatisfied with the results. Not terrible, but I am a creature of habit and don't like to experiment or mess around with something that I already like. With this recent move of the table, I am determined to make it work. I will at least stick with the table on this side until I get a second Oliphant :)

Lorin was game for the mime look and as we were shooting, he asked if I ever used the wigs that are on display in the studio. I had been wanting to try a few again and now was the perfect opportunity.

And so, an image is born!

Model: Jason Peacher

This is 1st in a series of 5. It was next to impossible to narrow it down to just one favorite, they are all so awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results.

When a subject has a long beard, like Jason does here, it's as if they're bringing a 'special guest' with them to the studio. I felt an internal pressure to take advantage of the beard, as I may never have the opportunity to photograph one like it again. I pulled out all the stops, and prepped and planned more for this shoot than any other.

It began with scouring the internet for inspirational images. Next, I improvised on those images and figured out ways to incorporate the beard. I decided on some table props that I thought would help to enhance the 'story' of the image. Some props I had, some I borrowed and some I had to buy. I arranged the props,... more »

I pulled out all the stops, and prepped and planned more for this shoot than any other.

It began with scouring the internet for inspirational images. Next, I improvised on those images and figured out ways to incorporate the beard. I decided on some table props that I thought would help to enhance the 'story' of the image. Some props I had, some I borrowed and some I had to buy. I arranged the props, according to each theme (5 themes total), and photographed each set so that I could use it for reference during the real shoot. I picked out clothing pieces from my own wardrobe selection, that I thought would be appropriate for each theme. I then sat at the table and in front of a mirror, performed each pose and expression that I wanted the subject and his beard to do. I took meticulous notes for each pose and jotted them all down to reference during the shoot. I decided on 4 poses (plus variations) for each theme, with an outfit change every 2 poses.

It's such a pain in the arse figuring out all this stuff in advance. Unfortunately however, I'm not the fly by the seat of your pants type person and everything, down to the smallest detail, must be pre planned prior to leave nothing by chance. What can I say? Everybody's different and this is what works best for me.

I used to be embarrassed having to refer to all these printed off pieces of paper with notes, which I recite to my subject like, "Right arm high, on table. Left arm low, off table. Drop right shoulder. Right hand clenched, under chin. Head cocked towards light, long neck. Squint/bulge eyes. Tension in right hand. Purse lips." I also include in the notes, the expressions I want for each pose like, Who me?, perplexed, proud, smelling sh*t, pissed off, cocky, etc.

Yes, it's a lot of work, but worth it to me by saving time and adding confidence during the shoot, knowing what things will look like in advance.

Trinity

An older image of Trinity that I just processed.
 
I recently purchased a hand painted canvas backdrop from #OliphantStudios in New York. I love it so much! It was rather scary ordering it over the phone, but I trusted that Sarah, the artist, who has been doing this a long, long time, knows what she is doing. They are pretty pricey and I agonized over the size I should get. Initially, I thought I could get away with a 9’ x 12’, but in the end, decided on a 9’ x 16’ instead. Much larger that I need right now, but you never know what the future will hold.
 
Buy once, cry once :)
 
Anyway, I have the Oliphant set up on the ‘chair’ side of my studio, which I thought I’d be using more. But wouldn’t ya know, I’ve fallen in love with the ‘table’ side set up, which still has the thunder gray seamless as the backdrop.

Crap!
 
I tried moving the table set up over to the Oliphant side, but for some reason, I didn’t like the results as much and moved it back. So now I am not using the Oliphant side that much :(
 
Well, I love the effect of the #Oliphantbackdrop so much, that I have since tried to recreate it on images that were shot against the gray seamless. This is one of those attempts. Definitely NOT THE SAME as the Oliphant, but I guess you can say ‘similar’. There is just something so authentic about the Oliphant, I really can’t put my finger on it. A ‘classic’ look. So, do I get another one for the other side? I think YES! But first, I want to use the one I have a little more. Then I’ll decide if I want to get another identical one or a different texture/color. One thing is for sure, it won’t be 9’ x 16’!

Model: Rory Riccella

When a subject has the ability to express so much emotion with just their eyes, like Rory has here, I feel like I just won the lottery. I can't express how elated I am when I see results like this one. Unfortunately, most subjects don't naturally possess this skill and it is often times very challenging to teach on the fly. I've started to ask my subjects to squint and bulge their eyes at the same time. This helps, but only for those that know how to squint! Surprisingly, I have encountered some that can't for the life of them, squint their eyes. Eventually, we work through it, but it is very refreshing to have it come so naturally.

Model: Aaron Mendoza

Oh my, here is another of Mr. Mendoza, aka ‘Dozer’, a rather different side.

I was grasping at straws trying to come up with an idea for this shoot with Aaron. I knew with his boyish good looks, it wouldn't be difficult to get some ‘nice’ shots, but I wanted something different. I wanted something dark. I saw an image on Pinterest by Annie Leibovitz of Jimmy Fallon in mime make up and a light bulb went off. I had never imagined Jimmy in such a portrait, just as I would never imagine Aaron in something similar. Completely out of character. That’s what I wanted!

We did some with a beret and some with the top hat. Some were with just the red striped shirt and others with the black leather jacket. I liked this combination best, but mostly, it was the one with the best expression. Sadly, we waited till the very end of the shoot to dothese and... more »

I liked this combination best, but mostly, it was the one with the best expression. Sadly, we waited till the very end of the shoot to do these and by then, Aaron was a little tired in the eyes. So, unfortunately, the majority were below my expectations. The make up can only add so much. The expression still HAS to be there. Otherwise, it’s just a guy in make up. No story. The expression tells the story, ALONG with the makeup and clothes.

So, not my best, but a fun image regardless!

It always amazes me at how ‘famous’ my subjects photograph, no?
 
Aaron is a young man that lives nearby and rides downhill (extreme mountain biking) with our employee, Kickstand. He had seen the recent images I took of Kick and asked if I could do a shoot with him.
 
I had some clothing and poses picked out in advance, that I thought would enhance the cavalier 'playboy' image I had in mind for Aaron. Some worked, some didn't. This one I love. The eyes are everything. Aaron was an absolute natural and it shows...

Here’s one of Trinity from a recent shoot. Still playing catchup...
 
I receive a lot of appreciation from folks in regards to my posting the lighting details on my images. I find it disheartening that there are those out there that are afraid of sharing their tech specs with others that are looking to learn. While I am way too lazy to offer tutorials on how I make and process my images, if I wasn’t, I would in a heartbeat. I am of the belief that there is only one of me and no one can steal me. Others can copy my style... but who cares! I am flattered. Along that note, it’s my subjects that make my images special. Each one walks into the studio amazing beyond words and all I do is capture them in pixels. They are all one of a kind and cannot be replicated :)

I've photographed Rory's sister Sydney previously and all I can say is, this family has good genes!
 
Sydney came along and was a wonderful assistant, especially in the messing up hair department!
 
Although Rory was nervous initially, he quickly warmed up, felt comfortable and took direction really well.
 
All in all, a fun shoot with some great images as a result, what more can you ask for?

You got a problem?

Although I had never met Nate prior to our shoot, he is very good friends with several of my other subjects. I could tell that he would be an interesting person to photograph because, LOOK AT THAT BEARD! Need I say more? Combine that with his YouTube video ‘Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing’, and needless to say, he was a very interesting subject indeed!

The theme of this shoot is ‘Meat and Potatoes’ and here is one of the images from it with Nate.

A friend just happened to have a dead bird in her freezer which she so graciously offered to let me borrow for this shoot. This is one of those instances that slap me in the face to remind me that I am not in New York anymore. I never met a soul in NY that just happened to have a dead animal in their icebox. No one. Ever. That being said, this is not an uncommon occurrence here in Utah.

Ever. That being said, this is not an uncommon occurrence here in Utah.

Originally, I planned on putting the bird on the plate, but at the last minute, decided on buying a piece of chicken to put on the plate instead. It was Nate’s idea to add the stray feathers and red food color to the chicken, which I am grateful for, because those details really help to tell the story. When it comes to ‘themes’, I just grasp at straws with my limited imagination. Ideas don't always work out, but you never know until you try!

Here is the link to Nate’s ‘Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing’ video on YouTube:

Kayla Sunshine

I'll jump at the chance to photograph a person with dreads and when the last minute opportunity came knocking to photograph Kayla, I did just that. She is the daughter of a friend, here for just a quick visit. I had very little prep time and just did the best I could.
 
I am still a little rusty from the time off. Because photographing women are so much more difficult, the rustiness felt very evident. Especially in my posing direction. I don't remember my left from right, so it can be very frustrating for me and the subject while trying to explain what I want. After a rough start, we both found our groove and things went pretty smooth from there.

WTF?

Model: Jeremy Hottenger
 
I have two crows on loan from a friend and asked Kickstand to come over and help me put them to use. There was tons of laughing throughout and I think we got a couple of interesting images in the end.
 
I was somewhat stressed out prior as I have not truly perfected the table set up. In addition, I moved the main light to the other side. But I took my own advice for a change, relaxed and remembered that every image does not need to be a masterpiece.

Model: Lorin Whitaker

Lorin was so kind to volunteer to be a guinea pig. I tested some new poses with him and he was such a great sport! I have to say, that although I was very apprehensive at first, I am loving the table set up. I think a prop on the table really helps tell a story, but I am usually at a loss when it comes to finding/choosing one. The true test, I think, is having a strong enough image that tells a story without a prop. Not easy to do, but I think this image achieves that goal.

The Raven Whisperer

I had a shoot planned with Eric today. I had no idea he was so passionate about ravens. In fact, the name of his company is The Raven Workshop! The timing could not have been more perfect. I just happened to have two ravens on loan in the studio :)

I always say that I need just one great image to consider a shoot a success. I definitely got more than one from this shoot, but if all I got was this one, I would be ecstatic, nonetheless. Because it doesn't just tell a story, it tells a REAL story...

Greg Istock

You might recognize this image of Greg, the husband of my wonderful friend, Val.

It was taken 2 yrs. ago, during a workshop held in my studio by +Don Giannatti 

I reprocessed it to sort of fit my new style. Again I had to redo the orientation, as the original image of Greg was shot vertically and I needed it to be horizontal.

Don gets full credit for the lighting, which was absolutely beautiful. Thank you, Don!

Lighting Info:
All lights are AlienBee B800's

- 5' octa on subject's right, 90º angle, with subject placed to the rear of the light
- White V-flat on subject's left, for fill.
- Strip box in front and to the left of subject, for additional fill.
- Strobe with bare reflector placed a foot from the thunder gray seamless, directly behind subject

Oy Vey!

My husband Fred
 
I get a chuckle when people tell me that I COULD charge for my portraits.
I interpret this as, they think my work is good enough that other people would pay money for it. If money exchanged hands, I would then be validated and so would my work.
 
I know when people say this to me, they are just being nice and it is meant solely as a compliment. But I often wonder about the value of something when it costs a lot of money as opposed to when it is given away for free.
 
When I was first introduced to Sue Bryce and her style of portraiture, I was in awe. I immediately wanted to emulate her style. I studied her posing techniques and would practice them on friends any chance I could get. I would show my guinea pigs examples of Sues’ work and tell them how much I idolized her and her style.

I studied her posing techniques and would practice them on friends any chance I could get. I would show my guinea pigs examples of Sues’ work and tell them how much I idolized her and her style. I would always mention that her average portrait session costs $3000.00. People pay her $3000.00 for a few photos and she is worth it! Her talent has tremendous value. Somehow, the fact that she can charge that kind of money and a wait list of clients waiting to pay it, put her in a class higher than any I could aspire to be in. The creme de la creme.
 
What does that say about me?
 
Well, my work has value to me on several levels, beyond any dollar amount. It provides me with a sense of esteem and self worth. The piece if mind, that when I’m gone, I will be remembered for something more than just the mundane. I will have left something behind that has value, but not the monetary kind. No one will care how much my portraits cost the sitter. That will be irrelevant.
 
So even though I have been told that I am a failure my entire life and to this day (thanks mom), my images to me, prove that I am not. That is the value.

I haven't taken any new photos for several months now, so I am just going over past shoots to see if I missed anything. I liked this image, but it 'didn't make the cut', rather it's an outtake. I don't mind posting these 'ok' images here on G+, I just didn't think that it was portfolio worthy.
 
If I recall, it was the lighting that I was most dissatisfied with... too bright. I was testing this set up with the table for the first time and experimenting with the positioning of the table/subject/lights. Did not nail it on this shoot, but thankfully I did on the shoot that I was testing it for, with Dallas.

One from a shoot with Austen a while back. I always liked this image, but I often times struggle with color correcting subjects with light colored hair. This image was no exception. I made several failed attempts in the past and tried one last time. Here is the result, not perfect, but good enough for me.

The Wild Side Of Don

When I woke up this morning, I never imagined that later in the evening I would be photographing Don Giannatti in my studio, with 10 of his Project 52 group members watching.

Don had messaged me a few days prior, letting me know that he was going to be in town with his group and asked if I would like to join them for dinner. I was honored that he asked and had a wonderful time, chatting with Don and the group members who were visiting, some from as far away as Sweden.

Afterwards, I invited everyone back to the studio, which has never seen so many people in it ever! I did an abbreviated session with The Don and this image is one of my favorites. I chose this one, because his expression and posture are so removed from what I would consider 'normal' for Don...

...or maybe not :)

I first met Don Giannatti after winning his 'Winner Gets Me' contest a few years ago. He came to my studio and gave me a one on one lighting workshop. I am grateful to Don, an amazing person and brilliant teacher.

What a fun evening... you never know what life is gonna throw at you.

A big 'Thank You' to Don and his group!
