I received my nifty little Steadicam Smoothee just before the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. While I didn’t have much time to do anything terribly involved I did manage to get out and shoot a couple of short samples. Check ‘em out! Although they make a really cool little adapter for the iPhone, both of these were captured with a GoPro Hero. The suggested retail for the Smoothee is $179.99 but I’ve encountered a street price of $149.99 on www.bhphotovideo.com.
I’ve already posted information about how to join me this spring for an EOS Destination Workshop in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, but there are another couple of opportunities that I failed to mention. My Bad! In September, I’ll take my show on the road for two one-day workshops in equally spectacular Jackson Hole Wyoming. I like to pop into Jackson right when the aspen trees are changing color and I always make a point of hiring some great looking cowboys or cowgirls to pepper into the landscape...
Here’s some recently edited video I captured while teaching and directing our on-camera talent during a multi-day workshop I hosted in the same general area.
Canon USA has long reserved the inside back cover of New York City’s Photo District News magazine for an ongoing advertorial series they call “Inside: The Story Behind the Shot”. Canon has used this page to showcase my beauty work several times in the past but this edition is kinda special to me. The featured image was 100% the product of lighting gear that I have designed and, in many cases, built myself. Read the text in the attached advertorial to learn more! But most importantly, does the purple clash with my glasses? Be honest...
Well, it’s chilly and cloudy right now but we can count on it being pleasantly warm when I host my next Canon-sponsored "Environmental Portraiture Workshop". I’ll be teaching two individual day-long sessions in beautiful Sedona, Arizona and you really should sign up to join me. Last year’s sessions filled to capacity and we made some stunningly beautiful images. Check out some of my test shots from last year’s session!
