Charles and Jennifer Maring video on Skip's Summer School
Why go to Skip's Summer School?
When the economy is so bad, many ask themselves WHY spend more money going to an educational program?
Here are a few good reasons:
1.)Especially during an recession there is a need to be more flexable on the types of photography we will do. Summer School is the perfect opportunity to see, hear and practice many new concepts that will give your business that boost it needs!
I am personally very excited to explore more of the concepts in the migration/morphing of photography to that of video. It is very important to keep on the cutting edge of technology, and the programming is particularily geared towards that endeavor.
2.)You have the opportunity of being encouraged by other photographers attending. This is huge. I know personally, that when I am down, being with a group of loving friends is just what the doctor ordered! You will find many old friends, and many new ones at Summer School.
3.)Hello?? Vegas, the MGM, a rate of $69. a night? Share a room and it is about $35. a night! You can't stay at a Motel 6 for that.
4.)FREE registration to WPPI in March 2010.
5.)Deals on meals at MGM.
6.)OK.. can I just say.. I love the spa! teehee.. ok I know it is a girl thing..
7.)The best thing? I'm going to be there! :) along with many of the brightest stars.
Don't we all need to have our batteries recharged? And at a time of the year when we can go home and actually have a wedding or portrait to shoot?

We are Family
Recently I had the honor of photographing a wonderful family in Atlanta, Georgia. Can I just say I love photographing families! If you only knew where I've come from... you would laugh! I used to hate photographing children! I used to approach it with about as much enthusiasm as I would having a root canal! What changed? .. well I guess I did. My business partner Michael Van Auken opened my eyes to the beauty of photographing children, in their innocence, wonder, and fun. One of the things he taught me was to photograph children in a relaxed way, not trying to make them be perfect... but allowing them to have fun. I've found a couple of rules that work.. (1) Find a great light source naturally, Light rules. (2)don't force it. Make what they are doing, what you want them to do. (3) Make fun of yourself, and play games.. use noises.. and farting noises work great for boys of all ages!
