Jay B Sauceda is an Austin based photographer with a Texas-sized appetite for making killer images. Whether it be piloting a plane through a mountain canyon, or hiking the Utah plateaus, Jay looks for images that spark the imagination.

Jay is also behind the zaniness of Texas Humor (www.txhumor.com) and the author of Y’all: The Definitive Guide to Being a Texan”.

I had a chance to sit down and chat with him for a few minutes and I thought I would share that with you.

An Interview with Photographer LaRae Lobdell, Florida

INTERVIEW WITH LARAE LOBDELL, FLORIDA PHOTOGRAPHER

ONE OF THE BUSIEST PHOTOGRAPHERS I KNOW!

MEET LARAE LOBDELL

For those who may not know, LaRae started her career in the Seattle area, and is now living in the Miami area. She has been a host on CreativeLIVE, shot many musicians and artists, and is now working with Polaroid University on a project to teach photography to beginners and intermediate shooters.

Recently she was in a very bad car accident, one that may slow most of us down. LaRae powered through it and is really back at it 100%. She is an inspiration for many of us.

I caught up with LaRae and we had a nice chat. I hope you enjoy the interview. She takes us through some of her images in the second half of the video.

Find Photo Clients NOW Webinar This Thursday

Find Photo Clients NOW Webinar This Thursday

THE WEBINAR!

I want to share a few things about the Find Photo Clients Now System, and why I know it will help emerging photographers in smaller markets develop a real and meaningful approach to business.

I will discuss how it came about, how I used it successfully in three businesses, and how it is working for many of the P52 members who are currently using it.

I am not a guru, nor am I gonna spend 30 minutes trying to ‘sell’ you on it. The free stuff that is part of the system is valuable as hell, so this is just a discussion on how it works.

Guest photographers who are using it will be in attendance as well.

Join us on Thursday, 5PM Pacific, for the webinar.

The Always Challenging “Pour Shot”

The Always Challenging “Pour Shot”

The pour shot may be one of the most challenging of commercial photography’s many challenges. Getting the pour to look right, making sure the liquid is lit so that it looks great, catching the action as it happens… so many things to monitor as the photographer attempts the pour shot.

Again and again and again. Yep – it can get messy as well.

Here are the amazing pour shots the students did last week.

NOTE: the layout was provided as a faux trade magazine cover so they had to shoot to a prescribed layout as best as they could.
