Raise your hands if you dread about posing your Models to get great, natural-looking portraits.

As an Introvert, I developed a set of specific methods to overcome my shortcomings in working with Models and make the photo shoots enjoyable and productive.

When my dad was two and a half years old, he and his twin brother climbed up into his dad’s car and was messing around with various knobs and levers. He found an interesting button on the dashboard and he pushed it. It ended up that this was the starter button. The car would turn over but it wouldn’t start without the key turned on but the car would move. He ended up moving the car out of the driveway and into the middle of the street. continue reading

The only intermediate stop before me and freedom is a remote gas station. I decide to also buy some snack and then i hurry to the forest.That is my real first stop.... continue reading
One of my tricks for finding new places to photograph is to make a turn on some road I've never been on before and then rely on my GPS to bring me back home.Warning! If you try this in Vermont or any other rural area make sure you have plenty food, water, a spare tire, a cell phone and cash.In Vermont I've found that the GPS will direct you on to roads that any normal person would consider someone's driveway or an abandoned logging road, or perhaps even a hiking trail!This... continue reading
