This summer I had a GIANT portrait sessionÂ giveaway and some pretty amazing people came along with me to make this a truly awesome experience. Now that the weather has cooled off, the pools are left lonely for the next few months and the gear is still drying out a bit for next season, we bring you the fun filled behind the scenes video from this spectacular underwater session. I had a very distinct vision when creating this shoot. I wanted to have the records floating. It turns out, vinyl records do not float. We used a few different items to creating that floating effect and with the help of a great team, we pulled it off.

Check out the video above and then below see more of the images from the day. I have already started to get inquiries for this service and I am still figuring out the costs for this type of session. Its a very extensive portrait session and a lot goes into the preparation, the actual shoot and then after, more extensive editing is required to create colors that are natural and not tinted blue and washed out. It is still fun and exciting – my next want is to shoot in open water. I am just waiting for it to warm up a bit.
In other exciting news, I was introduced to Triple Scoop Music thanks to an email from Borrow Lenses (shout it out!). This site lets you add music to your slideshows, website, portfolio, client galleries, and more with a one time fee. If you are streaming music without the artists permission, you are streaming music illegally. This would be a very expensive lesson to learn. Check out this site, some really great tunes to add to your music library for your commercial use.
