Atlanta 2013

What an honor it was, to be asked to be a speaker at PPA Imaging USA 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia this past January. It was the first time I had ever taught a workshop and it was quite exiting to be able to share what I do and how I do it with other photographers.It was also the first time visiting Atlanta and I have to say it was a wonderful experience. Not only was I able to visit some dear friends who live near ATL, but met many new ones. I taught an all day workshop on ‘Celeb Kids: Shooting and Post-Production” (special thanks to the wonderful companies that gave product for giveaways during my class: Lemondrop Stop Backdrops, Tamrac, Camerabits and Song Freedom), I attended a few classes myself (I am a firm believer that there is ALWAYS something to learn) ,went to the closing party at the Georgia Aquarium and I did 10 photo shoots with up and coming actors and models – let me tell you, there are some beautiful kids and teens in ATL! We did most of the sessions at a studio located at The Goat Farm – a gigantic turkey was there to greet us when we arrived, alongside a flock of roosters…there is a first time for everything, I guess. I didn’t get a shot of the turkey, as I was trying to act invisible and quickly get inside the studio before it chased me down (sorry big gigantic birds freak me out!). The Goat Farm is also a location for filming (The Walking Dead and Hunger Games) and is a really cool place with abandoned looking buildings, etc.

We, I brought along my trusty photo assistant, Robyn on this journey, were also able to do a bit of site seeing – I stopped by a few of filming locations of my favorite show, ‘The Walking Dead’, went to the Coca-Cola Museum and we visited the Tara Plantation house in Jonesboro, GA. Here are some images from my trip – Enjoy! I just might have to make this an annual trip…

Your Atlanta trip brings back memories to me. This past summer was my first trip to Atlanta. I brought with me my assistant first captains (my father and mother) who were visiting me from Puerto Rico, and my co-pilots at that time (13 years old and 5 year olds, son and daughter). We had a terrific time. Seeing all the pictures was a great joy, specially the ones from the Acquarium and Coca-Cola Museum.

Beautiful blog…

GET YOUR CHIC ON!

I am so excited and honored to be a Celebrity Photographer on Chic Critique!

During the month of February, I’ll be doing Image Critiques for photographers via video! What better way to improve your images than from somebody you trust?


A “4-week Critique” is a private class where Chic members simply post images once a week for 4 weeks and get VIDEO critiques from a Celebrity Photographer

  • All critiques are given in VIDEO format so that you can listen and watch what the Celebrity is referring to
  • Lessons & assignments are not given, simply critique
  • Each 4-week critique starts the first Monday of every month
  • Each active student posts 3 images once a week anytime between Monday-Wednesday
  • The Celebrity Photographer responds to each active student’s image post anytime between Thursday-Saturday
  • Each Critique class will consist of only 10 active students
  • A private classroom on the forum will be setup for each 4-week Critique
  • Offered exclusively to members & costs $69 per active student and $34 per “Chic Peek” silent student

My Photo Critique begins February 4, 2013– March 3, 2013
