    Yay.. I finally got a second session done editing. I am so swamped it is disgusting:lol: But.. at the end of this (one toddler session, three weddings, a business headshot and two family sessions) guess where I am going. *guessing*.... Iceland! Who-hoo. So I will be doing something I have really never done before.. landscapes. That should be interesting. Plus I have the opportunity to shoot with a Phase One P45+ back *whistles*.

    Anyways, here are a small sampling from two e-sessions.

    The first was done at the Calgary Stampede (yee-haw!)

    1. Telephon.. 1/40, f/2.8

    2. 1/60 f/2.8
    [​IMG]

    3. 1/80 f/4
    [​IMG]

    4. Okay this one is a bit of an outtake. This is what happens when you ask her what her 'sultry' look is like ;)
    [​IMG]

    5. 1/60 f/3.5
    [​IMG]

    6. 1/80 f/5.6
    [​IMG]

    7. Yes indeed her eyes really are this blue and her skin is PERFECT.. jealous!
    [​IMG]

    8. Oops - hadn't noticed the 'donut' on his arm before. I'll have to remove that later
    [​IMG]

    9. Little bit of a twist on the typical and in pocket shot
    [​IMG]

    10. This is a complete Gabe/Perspectiveye rip-off... oops!
    [​IMG]

    11. 1/160 f/1.6
    [​IMG]

    12. Yes.. so I adore this couple. Spot their Blue Steel/Zoolander impersonation? ;)
    [​IMG]

    13. Here's the second version of the one I already shared on my flickr page 1/15 f/5.6 (I think)
    [​IMG]

    14. 1/8 f/14 - handheld. i was having to wave all the pedestrians through as they were stopping. It was epic ;)
    [​IMG]

    15. 1/4 f/2.8 - tripod
    [​IMG]

    You are so talented!!! I have to say you are my favorite wedding/engagement photographer. Did you use a flash?

    As I've come to expect from you...fantastic work, well done.

    You are going Iceland and getting to use a P45 back? Is that one of the L.L. excursions?

    ok, firstly as mainly a lanscaper, omg im sooo jealous... but gratz!


    .. and second ^ too right.

    Basically i know iv said this before but for your age you are eaily the most impressive commercial photographer iv seen. I know people that have 10+ years on you that have been in the industry for all those years and would give thier right arm to be able to shoot like you have done above.

    Your editing skills also seem to have caught up with your flair for shooting, both are now very strong and together your style is really shining through.

    Just excellent, :thumbsup:

    So I don't have a favorite because they are all simply BEYOND stunning!!! But I ADORE #22! That is such a unique, creative shot! LOVE it! Your photos are so sharp and crisp and your processing is amazing! Both you and your photos are such an inspiration to me (and others too on the forum, I'm sure!)....I can only hope to be half as good as you someday!

    Again, GORGEOUS!!!

    Question: How much editing do you do on your photos? Do you use actions or do you treat each one differently? I can't get over how amazing your pictures are! Either I need to go to Canada or I need to get you to move to Illinois, because I would love to follow you around on a session! :)

    Ok so are you taking on any peons to carry your equipment around so they can leech off your knowledge and style?

    Simply perfect.

    Also I loved loved loved the "twist on the classic hands-in-pocket" shot. I will be attempting to rip you off on that one :lol:

    Overall, super awesome freak nasty sweet!

    Whoah tons of replies! Thanks everyone :)

    Zendianah I used flash in 13 and all the others are natural light. For flash there I had a 420EX mounted on top of a monopod shooting through an umbrella. I brought my handy dandy assistant (read: 5 foot tall mother) to hold it off camera.

    BigMike: We'll have to meet up and shoot together sometime! LL Excursion..? Apparently not because I have no idea what that is. Once I figure it out though I am sure I will feel mighty dumb! :lol:

    Hey Arch, want to give me some words of wisdom coming from the landscape pro? No seriously, if you had to tell me 5 main things to know what would it be?

    Stacey: I posted about all of my processing here: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1298886&postcount=11 . I try to get it as close as I can right out of the camera and really after that it is just some tweaking and adding some contrast. And.. (yes I know that is not a correct sentence) I think everyone should come to Canada :) Although Illinois is nice too!

    Crimsonandwhite: Ha! There are thousands of photographers way more talented then I but I am more then happy to take on peons and being other people's peons regarding of talent (both ways). On the pants ones it is so funny, I had never seen them put together before and now I just find it so addicting. See, it works for everyone :lol:
    (the one above is the 'original' I had to try it again on this second session)

    Luna: that post is priceless I laughed so hard when I saw that.

    Once again thanks everyone :D

    Your work is simply amazing! I've been trying my hand at more portrait work as of late, I hope to be able to get pictures like what you've shown here eventually. Fantastic shots, poses and lighting, everything!

    Brittany these are just awesome! You are seriously so talented. I'm jealous! :) I will have to save up $ to get you to be my destination wedding photographer (Have to work on getting engaged first though!) I've always thought I would love to have my E-session at a theme park or carnival or county fair type of place and your pictures confirm this. My favorites are definitely the phone booth shots and #13 and 14.

    I so know how you feel about being swamped in work. I'm planning a huge almost 4 week trip to England next May and I can't wait! Can't wait to see what you get from Iceland!
