Rick Sammon workshop at creativeLIVE

Whew! We're two days into the Rick Sammon workshop at creativeLIVE. It has been a whirlwind of tips, tricks, and general photographic education.

Outside of Serious Pie in South Lake Union
 On day 1 we worked with small strobes in a variety of sets with two models. From an elegant rim light on black background to Little Red Ridinghood in the woods. In the middle of the day we did a call in session with wildlife photographer Juan Pons. And then we finished up the day/evening with a great dinner at Serious Pie (second time this week!).

Day 2 mixed continuous fluorescent lights (a Westcott Spiderlite TD6 kit), strobe, and window light. And I got a good amount of air time discussing various lighting topics with Rick and the students. Rick has really gone out of his way to include me in the class instead of being in the background. Who knows, this might lead to me doing some of my own classes on creativeLIVE. Let cL know if you want to see me present on something there.

Tomorrow I will try to post some photos of me as model, musician, assistant, photographer, general go-to guy on set. In the meantime, some photos from the first two days...
