I’m one very lucky Uncle. I have seven nieces and five nephews, and I have now photographed every single one of them for their senior portraits.

It became “an event” years ago, to make a trip to see Uncle Kevin for a full weekend to have their senior pictures taken, but always involved much more than an hour or two in the studio. We’d do the traditional studio session, then go out on location for something interesting… the beach, Ybor City, University of Tampa, downtown, a park… Then, of course, we’d hit a Rays/Yankees game, visit the Clearwater Marina, or do something that was just plain fun.

Well, of the dozen Newsome kids who call me “Uncle,” the last one just spent the weekend here for his senior pictures (all but two of my nieces and nephews hail from Atlanta).

Josh is the caboose of the train, and didn’t disappoint. We shared a ton of laughs, I told him stories about his dad (my brother) he’d never heard (always fun to reveal some hidden family secrets), we hit the movies, toured the Big Cat Rescue in Tampa, and lunched and dined all around town.

He’s an experienced kayaker, so when I was in Atlanta a few weeks ago, I took advantage of the opportunity to begin the senior session with images I knew we couldn’t do when he came to Tampa.

The rest were taken all over the Bay area, and of course, no senior session is complete without a few of our famous Bumper Shots. Here are some of my favorite images of Josh Newsome’s senior portrait session…

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Corporate Event Photography coverage are some of my most challenging yet favorite assignments. It gets me out of the studio, into uncontrolled lighting conditions, with puzzle pieces that interact in an un-choreographed fashion, challenging me to find just the right angle at just the right moment, under the best possible lighting conditions, and tell the client’s story of their event.

This week, I had the pleasure working with and providing documentary style photography coverage of a three day convention for the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine which hosted over 400 attendees from the Health Care Industry.

This is just a small sample of imagery they needed to build their website and ad pieces for their 2015 convention schedule.
