%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Heidi Ann get’s asked a lot about the lighting behind her gorgeous Haute Pink images.  So, she decided to put all that info into a book!  The result is ‘Lit – Lighting Sketches from the Workbook of Heidi Ann’

‘Lit’ features 78 of Heidi’s signature fashion forward images, with 14 sections demonstrating historical “looks” including Old Hollywood, Off Broadway, Throwback to the 70′s, and Avant Garde. ‘Lit’ will give you the confidence and permission to go out and just play with light.  Its an invaluable tool for getting started with your own lighting experiments!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||Just a quick little brag that I forgot to mention…

Every spring, tens of thousands of wedding and portrait photographers from around the world descend upon Las Vegas for the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International convention. One of the highlights is the 16×20 print competition. The competition is notorious for the exacting standards and crazy attention to detail of the judges, for the world-class quality of the entries, and for the sheer number of entries from around the world. Let’s just say this particular competition has some street cred.

I am honored to be able to share with you that two of my prints attained an Accolade of Excellence award this year and I am nothing short of humbled when I look around at the company I am in.

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||A couple of weeks ago I was interviewed, along with my lovely and talented wife Pepper, for F-Stop Beyond Radio – Ron Dawson’s interview series ‘for the visually inspired’. We are honored to be included among the ranks of some pretty major-league company. I don’t think we talked about photography itself even once, but we had some fun. Hopefully its worth a listen:


Thanks to Ron for chasing us down and putting up with our funky phone connections!

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism || HEY PHOTOGRAPHERS! Did you know that one of the world’s premier wedding album manufacturers has its albums produced RIGHT HERE in Salt Lake City?  IT’S TRUE!
KISS Wedding Books – ‘the world’s simplest book company” - has enjoyed such success that they’ve had to expand their production facilities earlier this year and chose our own back yard as their new production home! Want a tour? YOU GOT IT!

On October 14th Shaun Austin & Kevin Swan bring their Get Simple Tour to Salt Lake City with special guest speaker, Utah’s own Pepper Nix….and a tour of the plant is included! All for a measly $100.

Why, you probably spend more on lint rollers every month…

%utah wedding photographer %wedding photojournalism ||UPDATE: Due to the proximity of Thanksgiving, it was decided that the seminar is being postponed until sometime next year.  We’ll keep you posted when we know more.

About four years ago I attended a seminar in Los Angeles by famed Australian photographer David A. Williams. I’ve attended many seminars and I find something useful in all of them – but David’s message was the only one that I can honestly say left me….moved. There are many gifted photographers out there who can show you a new way to see images, help you redefine what to shoot, teach you how to wrangle the most from your equipment, or offer priceless information on how to reach your ideal client. But David speaks to something altogether different, and arguably more important: why we shoot. David shoots from the heart. And he will inspire you to do the same.

I am honored to be co-hosting David in his new 3-day seminar presentation along with the inimitable Pepper Nix of Pepper Nix Photography and Heidi & Tim Uhl of Retrospect. The seminar runs from November 23-25, 2009 at the ZumaPhoto studio in Salt Lake City, UT. You really owe it to yourself to attend.
