I'm a wedding photographer based out of Arizona but my passport has stamps all over the world at places I have been able to travel to and shoot. When I am not shooting weddings I love to teach other photographers through a series of workshops I have taught in Australia, Cancun, and numerous other locations. My passion is helping build the photography community so we all can encourage one another and grow together. Been married 12 years and together my wife and I have 5 kids. Yep 5!

Water Wigs Using High Speed Photography

Back in August we featured Tim Tadder‘s series of water wig shots using bald guys. Well Tim is back and this time his impressive series of shots are done with women in latex. Does it get better! Actually as Tim explains the latex fit well as it went with the futuristic fashion shoot concept and allowed them to easily wipe dry after each shot. Red Bull was also on site with a Phantom camera to capture the entire shoot behind the scenes. The movie will be released soon and we look forward to seeing it as I am sure many of you are as well.  [more]

Facebook Changes Trouble Business Page Owners

Recently Facebook made some changes to it’s Edgerank algorithm and in so doing, without warning might have just killed your reach on your posts by 50% or more. I witnessed the change when on October 4th I posted an album from a shoot and expected the current expected reach of 3000-4000 views but after 24 hours the album had only 86 total views. I was quite concerned by the news and thought at first it must have been a glitch before actually discovering Facebook had changed things up yet again and business page owners are in an uproar about it. I’ll share my experience below, some interesting finds and what I am doing about it to continue reaching my fans. [more]
