Whats up people!
I'm 28 years old, and I'm a self taught photographer. I have always had a passion for Photography, and I just started to really get into the creative side of it.
I really enjoy doing VERY creative shoots. Dark, gothic, makeup, hair and great shooting locations are a PLUS for me!
I enjoy all of that. The bigger the better. The more creative the better.

LET THERE BE LIGHT!
This past weekend, I had a shoot on the beach. I had been following the weather forecast for the week, and saw that it would be sunny, warm and great weather all weekend!
The day for the shoot comes, we meet our model Mindy at a seperate location to have Melissa do some great Hair and Makeup.
We start the caravan down to the beach location...as we go over the mountain we see nothing but CLOUDS!!!!
Of course I start to panic. I decide to still go to the location on the beach and shoot. I've never done an overcast shoot. Not sure what kind of looks I would get.
We get to the location and this is what I see...
I know it looks stunning and kind of haunting, but it wasn't what I was hoping for. I was still able to get some great shots.
Mindy was a trooper. Before her and I touched the water she was all game to jump in. After we felt the water, we were both surprised to find out the water wasn't that cold.
We shot for a bit, until we thought we got all that we could get, with what little light we had. So, we packed up. Put towels on, camera went back into its bag, and as we started to walk away, to head back to our cars....
THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN!!!
THE CLOUDS OPENED UP AND THE SUN CAME OUT!!!!
I quickly looked at Mindy, who was just starting to get warm under that towel, and said drop that towel and get back in the water! I knew we had limited time to get some great shots with this lighting, so we started working quickly and I was all over the place!
LIKE A CRAB!
The Sun peeking through for a quick minute, helped us out a lot and made for some great pics!
In the end, the clouds opened up for a quick minute and we were able to nail some great shots.
