May in North Carolina

Here are some more of my photos from a nature series that I'm doing.

Hilton Garden Inn Shoot

This is a hotel shoot right in the heart of the tourist mecca, International Drive, Orlando Florida. A few of the challenges faced on this shoot was the food shots that the client wanted and the exteriors. Food is always a bit of a challenge due to the time needed and in this case, the fact that the hotel needed to breakdown the area and set up for a luncheon. Secondly the exteriors were a bit dicey, namely the tiki bar shots because of the strong winds, bright ambient light and they were open for business. Yep, I had patrons of the hotel all around me trying to get their drinks while I was trying to light and shoot the images. Everyone was patient and it all worked out in the end.

Latest photoshoot for SPARKS & Direct TV

This week I was contracted to photograph for a convention design company out of Santa Fe Springs, California called SPARKS. Their client DIRECT TV, was hosting a 2000+ dealer convention at Walt Disney World's Coronado Springs Resort and convention center.
This job was particularly challenging due to the mixed color balance of light and darkness to the room and textiles. I used 3 radio slaved lights for most of the images. I feel the images look natural and not overly lit or fake. Thanks for looking.

This is a foggy October sunset on Clingman's Dome in South Carolina. The colors were amazing and the fog was so thick that you could see the particulates of water floating in the air. The light was absolutely amazing. I can't wait to go back.
