It's Day 3 of the 5DayDeal! 
Thank you so much for all your help in raising money for some very worthwhile charities. Reviews of the deal are coming in and here is one of our favorites! Follow this link to buy the best business deal on the market. www.5daydeal.com/?ref=47

Everybody knows that the amount of items you get for your money is amazing, but I was surprised by the sheer quality of the content! With everything here, I feel like I can actually make it and live off of my photography! So far my favorite is Joel Grimes, can't wait to view/read the rest! Best purchase, discounted or otherwise!

As a new Canon Explorer of Light, I had the opportunity to be a part of the launch of the new Canon imagePROGRAF PRO-1000 printer. It was fun being on the other side of the camera for a change.

This image of Gino Calabro was shot two weeks ago during my Phoenix workshop. One 22 inch beauty dish as my overhead light, Canon 5DSR with a 24-70 2.8 II lens at 24mm focal length. The texture on the background was added in post.

Another image from the Canon  Printer launch. For the lighting, I used one overhead light, a 36 inch Westcott Rapid box, and for the two edge lights, I used two Westcott large soft boxes. Camera info: Canon 5DSR with the 24-70mm 2.8 II at 45mm. Thanks to Yanko Valentin for being my willing subject.
One space left for my upcoming Phoenix workshop on Nov. 14-15 at the Wigwam Resort. www.joelgrimesworkshops.com

Artist, Photographer, Educator
Introduction
Commercial Advertising Photographer for over 30 years.  At heart I am a portrait shooter that loves making people look larger than life.  My goal is to create images that not only fulfill my vision as an artist, but also push the boundaries on what we would call traditionally acceptable.  I love the exploration process of breaking new ground.  I also have a passion to encourage others to explore and fulfill their artistic vision, as well.
