Well, it's finally out. My "15 Minutes" (ok, 2 minutes and 57 seconds.) Thank you Doug Emblidge and Mark Schuman from 13WHAM for doing this. What a great editing job!
I hope that this video conveys my love for the people I photograph and how much I enjoy doing what I do. And for all of you out there who can relate - don't let your age hold you back from your passion.
Nervous? Oh, yes! In general, photographers like being behind the camera. Especially when it’s video. But Doug was so personable and put me at ease—and I took a lot of pointers from him for my own efforts in making my clients feel comfortable and natural in front of the camera. Nervousness is a real thing, and being on the receiving end of the camera made me more empathetic toward people having their portraits done.
A very big, giant, heartfelt thank-you hug to Lauren Dixon and Mike Schwabl. I'm not sure because I haven't met everybody, but possibly the sweetest couple on Earth. They are the people that made this possible.
I am always happy to hear from people that want portraits of the dreamers in their lives. I'm flexible with time and am available to come set up wherever you are or you are welcome to come to my studio. Please call or email me and we can talk further.
