The Notebook

5, Jul 2009

I’m still a little overloaded, though I’m chipping away everything. After meeting with the following people in St. Louis, I have several pages of chicken scratched notes in two different notebooks. I think it’s time to consolidate the list in a blog entry. Special thanks to these wonderful people for taking the time to help […]

The past few days have been extraordinarily busy. I’d like to give thanks to the following people for taking time out of their busy schedules to talk with me and answer all my questions: Alicia Hottle Megan Thiele Liz Reiff Sloan and Kristie Cromie Tracy Lee Patrick Fischer I am certainly going to write more […]

I was supposed to meet Kathryn at the church at 4:45pm, but I got there a little early. Her car was already, there but I didn’t see her. She had told me at the rehearsal the church had Mass from 4 – 5 pm, so I grabbed my gear and headed for the garden to […]

Last night I had the great fortune of working as a 2nd shooter for Kathryn Gaiennie. It was exhilarating and exhausting. I’m sore in places I didn’t expect to be. Here’s how it went down: I blogged about how I got this opportunity in Finding a photographer, so let me pickup where I left off. […]

As I said in a previous post, I’m planning to go to St. Louis  on Sunday (I’ll tell you why it’s not today a little later) . Earlier this week I sent out some emails to St. Louis wedding and portrait photographers I found listed with St. Louis Bride Magazine. I visited each website on […]

On my way home from dinner at my girlfriend’s house I listened to another one of Camera Dojo’s podcasts, well most it (it’s only a 25 minute drive). It’s Podcast #45 and they talk with LA wedding photographer Candice Cunningham. Before I get started, this blog is not only for other people in my situation, […]

Photography Mentor has a few cool things to offer. The first is free. The have a collection of photography podcast feeds that I’ve found really helpful. I think that’s where I first found Camera Dojo. The second costs some money, but I think it’s REALLY cool! For $175 you can sign up for the Photography […]

One of the resources I’ve heard about several times is the book Fast Track Photographer by Dane Sanders. I can’t remember where I heard about it first but I know David and Kerry at Camera Dojo have mentioned it more than once. It’s only 25 bucks so I figured I’d give it a shot. I […]

Last week I discovered the podcasts at Each week these two guys, Kerry Garrison and David Esquire put out a “totally” awesome Podcast (one of them says “totally” all the time, by his hair cut I’m guessing it’s David). I’ve only listened to a few episode so far, but I’m already hooked. In episodes […]

I’ve decided to go to St. Louis at the end of the week. I know some photographers there that I’m hoping will be able to talk with me and maybe let me tag along on some of their shoots (if they have any). Once I’m done with this post I’m going to do a little […]
