It’s been a while and.. yeah I don’t have an excuse.

I’m an awful blogger. Like most people, I’m always doing something with work, the girlfriend, family, her family, and it keeps going but I often forget the blog. It’s been busy! The last few months have been time to reflect where life is going and what’s next for the business. Well.. I can’t tell you yet 😆

I’ve been slammed with commercial shoots, weddings, client events and I will make an individual post for each one. Every Tuesday and Thursday with an occasional post on the weekends, you’ll get to take the journey with me. 

Stay tuned and check out this test shoot with this awesome Fred Water flask.


I used a gelled light to balance the aluminum against the blue background. Projector with a video of the ocean playing behind the flask (water heh) and that’s it. Super simple speedlight setup and bam.

That solar eclipse though..

Well we managed to check out the eclipse today! Luckily our neighboring business had the special glasses... it was cool! Would've loved to be in the totality line.  

Did anyone get a killer pic of the eclipse!? Share it with us and tag @thestudio419.

We did get this pic of our pup sunbathing in the early AM...


August special.. What!

You heard that right. We're running a special. Book your headshot session for just about anytime in August, and you'll get a 30 minute session* for $99.

Yeah, you read that right... for $99 you get time wth me, my camera, and some incredible headshots. Don't miss this. 

 * this includes indoor and outdoor session at my studio location, and 3 outfits. 

Just ask some of our clients about their session (you can find them on social). 


And another!


Don't wait. This year is flying by! 

It's summertiiiiime

That means it's perfect for senior pics... so let's share this and get some people in front of the lens. Getcha some ridiculously creative senior pics! 



Backups... ugh.

Every other month we backup every - single - item. This takes time and it drives us crazy, but your files are important. Extremely important. Eventually we expunge old files and such. Anyhow we just wanted to show you how crazy the last few months have been. Ahh! 

Anyone have the hookup on some HDDs?


Sorry about the quality... yuck!
