Debbie Asprey absolutely loves hood ornaments and decided to please herself by indulging her passion and making her own photographs of a series of hood ornaments. She is now going to double her pleasure by creating a mural on her wall of framed prints of her work. Congratulations Debbie for following through on your passion and taking it all the way to the final printed and framed artifact!!!

Look at Sue Pelley who made her new year’s resolution this year to jump off the proverbial cliffs and dive headstrong into her greatest fears. After publishing her first website and starting her photograph business, Stay Focused Photography, Sue took on her very first wedding photography contract this Fall.

Gordon Brown took a trip out of his “sandbox” to create something completely different than what he’s used to shooting. He was determined to shoot the perfect splash and in the process has perfected his very cool lighting and produced a most interesting and compelling series of powerful photographs of splashes. Well, we’re calling them splashes, maybe they have another name. Each one tells a story and he comes up with some fun titles too…this one is still untitled so if you have some title ideas for Gordon, click on his image and share them with everyone in the comments section. Congratulations Gordon!!

Lena Sakharova received her first ever paid photography gig and was absolutely thrilled with the results. And so she should be. She did a studio portrait session for a real estate agent who really needed something new and professional. The shot below is some fun Lena had after her photo shoot while she still had all her lights set up. You can see some of the photos of her client over on our Facebook page. Congratulations Lena!!
