The new year is finally here! You heard me right, because for any wedding photographer the new year doesn’t begin until our Christmas is over. When the trade show doors open at WPPI every year in Las Vegas, it’s like Christmas morning, and I end up spending money I don’t have on fancy new camera equipment I really don’t need. It’s great! :)

WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) is the yearly conference in Las Vegas where I get to learn from the best in the business, meet and hang out with around 14,000 photographers, and see the latest and greatest new gear. Like I said, Christmas! This year the Photog Shootout crew hosted a fun photo shoot in Old Town Las Vegas, and I had the great pleasure of leading one of the groups, along side the other group leader and founder of Photog Shootout, Rob Ninja Nicholson. The theme for this shoot was “Dazed and Confused,” so we decked our models out in 70’s outfits and borrowed a classic ride! A big thanks goes out to Kia Gregory for putting together this great event, and thanks also goes out to Tommy DeGennaro for allowing our models to sprawl out on his beautiful Corvette!

What a HUGE success! I was truly honored when I was asked to host the SoCal Photog Shootout event, it’s such an amazing group and I’m so happy to be a part of it. After months of preparation it was finally time to bring in 50+ photographers, models, makeup artists, hair stylists, and caterers to my new studio, a true test to see what it could handle! A big thanks goes out to Rob Ninja-Nicholson for giving me the opportunity to host the Shootout. I’d also like to thank the other group leaders for sharing their wisdom with everyone, Wai, Hanssie, Matt, and Michelle…you guys freakin’ ROCK! And finally, thanks to all the models, makeup artists, hair stylists and caterers that helped out as well.

Models:
Tristen Munroe, Kevin Glaab, Lisa Cohen, Becka Adams, Alissa Ohashi, Chelsea Ravitch, Teran Sheffer, Steven Petersen, and Curtis

Makeup and Hair:
Kacee Geoffroy, Alisha Baijounas, Heather Molina

Catering:
Cupcakes by Fancy That! and dinner by Podges

Okay, back to the shoot! The theme for the Shootout was “Great Gatsby,” inspired by the fashionable 1930s. I had two incredible models for my group, Tristen and Kevin. They aren’t professional models, but if you ask anyone at the Shootout, they would have disagreed. Tristen and Kevin are one of my awesome couples and I’ll be photographing their wedding next May. The goal for my group to achieve relaxed, romantic portraits working with a real couple. Oh, and I had a cool restored 1930 Oldsmobile care of my buddy Mike to work with as well :)

Tristen and Kevin, I can’t thank you guys enough for taking the time to help us out, it was a blast and just gets me that much more excited to photograph your wedding!!

These guys are good. How do I know? Because they rehearse in my house. One of the “perks” of living with a rock star. Remember their name, because they will make it big. But I recently told them that it’s not just the music that helps you get on the map, you’ve got to have great band photos that fans will want to look at…all the time. Well, after months of rehearsals and tons of aspirin, we finally got a shoot together, so now the groupies will have some pics to drool over. Check out their Myspace page and listen to a few of their tunes…

Here are the boys, from left to right: Trevor Clemente – drums, Sean Espinoza – lead vocals/rythym guitar, Josh Mejia – bass/back up vocals…
