Chicago update

Just wanted to show a couple of random shots around my uncle’s house:





Short vacation

I’m out of town until March 18th.  I have a shoot as soon as I get back so I hope to update this blog with shots from those.

After shooting the Candy Rock Couture fashion show, I assisted a photo shoot with Trey Songz!  It was my first celebrity shoot and first time assisting.  Also, I’ve never hauled as much equipment as I did for this shoot.  It was a great learning experience and I was able to network with some people in the industry.  

Here are a couple from my Chicago visit so far:

Gear update – I’ve moved from a Canon 450D to the 5D MK II!  Sold my beloved Canon 17-55 IS and bought a new Sigma 24-70 HSM to replace it with (since the 17-55 can’t be used on a full-frame camera like the 5D).  Traded my 85L 1.2 II for the 70-200 2.8 IS (for the fashion show) but I’m going to sell the 70-200 and get the 135L and the Sigma 50 1.4.  I will be sending in my Sigma 24-70 in for calibration while it’s still under warranty.

That’s all for now!  I will update with more photos from Chicago.
