Let me tell you all about my favorite instant film book, “The Polaroid Years”, and how I draw inspiration from crazy, wild art photography contained within! If you’re interested in creating strange and amazing art pieces with your instant film camera of choice, get out your notepad and take some notes!
When you have a compliant subject in a creative portrait shoot, the only limits are your imagination and budget. In this class we focus on the concepts behind unique portrait photography by looking at the work of dozens of world class photographers past and present. We’ll cover where to find subjects, how to approach them, the pros and cons of different types of gear, and some wild approaches to post work and in camera effects that allow you to make unique imagery. I’ll also show you how I do some of my own creative portrait shoots with models in both studio and location settings, and in a travel photography scenario.
This class focuses almost exclusively on putting together a shoot and creative concepts, not gear and technology.
It’s the end of the most magical time of the year- also the time when you can pick up cool and funky LED holiday lighting to use in your own creative photo and video shoots! I show you some psychedelic samples of my own work using Christmas lasers, as well as other surreal lighting classics from James Bond to Frank Ockenfels 3 and Dan Winters.
Kelly Eden + The Lego Shoot – let me tell you all about my attempts to make Lego clothes out of Lego Friends pieces for a photoshoot with model Kelly Eden! Kelly is a model known for a very particular vibe/ color scheme, and this was definitely a shoot where I played off of a model’s pre-existing style rather than building it from the ground up. It’s also an opportunity to make use of all the Lego Friends Legos my daughter had laying around.
Patreon! Tumblr! Where can or should an artist who photographs nudes share their work? Is censored images on instagram or Facebook good enough? How does one honor the actual work? I do what I can to address the considerations of the art nude/ fashion nude photographer in these 5 brief minutes!

Welcome to a new series where I show you some specific shoots I did with models and Fuji Instax film! These images were shot with the Fuji Instax Mini Neo Classic 90 in 2015 with model/ actress/ Penthouse Pet Glass Olive aka Olive Glass. We shot in Utah by the Great Salt Lake, a very barren area ideal for the minimalist photography I like with my Instax.
