David & Whitney, the couple behind ‘Whitney Scott photography’, are much more my friends than they are my competition. David’s goofy sense of humor matches up well with mine to lead to pun-wars on facebook, and Whitney’s healthy sense of rivalry leads to ‘I hate you’ comments on photos she likes that I post on my business page. (all in good fun. I think).
Whitney took family pictures for my own clan 2 years ago, and I worked with the Scotts last year on a promotional shoot for Black River Imaging, for an image featured in a 2 page spread in 3 different national photography magazines. The Scotts are quickly becoming pretty hot stuff in the photog world… several recent speaking tours for big-time names in the industry like Sandy Puc.
We began with the kitchen. They needed a ‘scene’ which showed the fullness of their lives at home… running a photography business, homeschooling their kids, and maintaining a balanced household.
The setup. David is in ‘pancake flipping’ stance… Emma is… I really don’t know what Emma is doing.
and, the final image (or, at least, an alternate of it): YES, the pancake flip is real. Whitney told me we could just photoshop that pancake in, and I refused. Capturing things in midair w/out the aid of photoshop is something I’m proud of… but really, I’m more proud of David for this awesome flip. 🙂
After this, we moved to…
Don’t worry, no NSFW stuff coming up. Just another literal interpretation of ‘taking your work home with you.’
I DO have a shot of David in his towel though. preparing said towel took a few minutes….
And we ended on a saucy note… it WAS a bedroom shoot, you know…
That’s it for now. Enjoy the rest of your tuesday!
