“Photographers should spend more a year on education than they do on equipment.” – Roberto Venezuela

We agree with Roberto. Between photo conventions, photo society meetings, a slew of magazines and the internet we feel we do just that. A couple of weeks ago Tanya and I were in Galveston for the Dallas Professional Photographers Association annual Little Red Schoolhouse. This year’s theme was Great Gatsby. Anyone that knows us, knows vintage photos is how we met and we really enjoy doing them. We got a chance to do some shoots while there.


Roberto and Cris Duncan gave us some great nuggets of information we can’t wait to use at our next weddings.  Thanks to Sigma for loaning me their 8-16mm Super Wide Angle lens for the Infrared photo shot on our IR converted Nikon D70.  This was shot at 8mm.  Love the way the trees frame the Hotel Galvez.  Sigma was the big sponsor at LRSH and had lenses there to use in photos.


We have a ton of sessions to catch up on in the blog but I thought I would post a couple of quick pics I took today during a photo session at the Stockyards.  We were doing family photos and came across a Tesla, the new all-electric sports car.  They are heading to the Detroit Auto Show and decided to drive from California to Detroit making stops along the way.  I ran into Jason & Lauren (Jason is the 25th employee of Tesla) and they were driving car #750 when they stopped to see the Stockyards.  Since I was standing there with camera in hand, I took a couple of photos for our blog and theirs

Everyone who knows me knows that I have about a 30 second tolerance for watching YouTube clips.  Not only did I watch this one from start to finish, I watched it two more times before I could pick myself up on the floor, wipe the tears from my eyes and write a quick post about it.  TOO FUNNY!  I only hope we get to photograph a wedding like this someday…
