So incredibly grateful for all of the work that +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee did to bring the 3rd edition of the #plusonecollection to life. Here's my copy (5 of 40) of the book. Love the book, the images in it and especially the cause Saving Eliza.

If you have a copy you can check out my image "Adornment" on page 119.

Checking out some crazy HDR images from a trip to Trump Scotland a few years ago. Don't shoot much of these anymore...probably for obvious reasons. LOL
John Kaminski is a fine art portrait and glamour photographer. When he's not shooting in his home state of Pennsylvania, he's traveling to work with new and established models around the world.

As part of my +The Arcanum  #Sphere1   #Level15  assignment, I have scheduled posts on my facebook page for a month out. I plan on spending a few hours per month scheduling these posts and then letting them hit.

Anyone else have a good system or workflow in place?

John - Always enjoy your photography posts and find your comments on lighting and setup educational for someone like myself,, besides that your models are very easy on the eyes.

Basic Information
Other names
Portrait and glamour photographer

I've always been interested in photography both for work and for fun, but it wasn't until 2012 that I really started to focus on the art of shooting people. My interest in portraiture began rather technically as a way to better understand lighting and techniques, but quickly evolved into a passion for working with and directing people. 

“My style has evolved over the years, but slowly started to focus on capturing beauty with painterly imagery.”

While my photography started as a hobby, it’s now an obsession. Since I have a full time job that I love, I have the ability to pick projects that interest me. What I choose to shoot, I choose for art and creativity. Whether it be a personal shoot, an update to a model’s portfolio, or a brand-specific concept; I am very selective in the projects and clients that I choose to work with. This allows me to put all of my effort into getting the most out of the subject instead of rushing to get it completed. 

If you are interested in learning more about my photography or would like to work with me on a specific project, please contact me. If you’re excited about creating something beautiful for yourself or your brand then I am excited about working with you.

Google+ Gets The Social Network Parody Treatment [VIDEO]

Early adopters, rabid invite seekers and the overwhelmingly male population of Google’s social network — this parody takes them all on.

I've been going to Lydia at Viva Bella since moving to the area and can't say enough good things about her and the entire staff. In the past when selecting a salon in a new area I would get a great first haircut where the stylist paid attention to the details. After 2-3 times going I would find that it was a rush job and didn't really get me what I wanted (and I'm not even picky). For the first time, I can honestly say that the last haircut I had was as good as the first. As a guy, I realize that I'm not there primary clientele but they do a great job on men and women. I liked them so much I have even started using them to help out with hair for my portrait photography studio. They just do fantastic work. Regardless of the style or job, they are professional, talented and just plain fun to be around. I highly recommend them for men or women looking for an excellent experience that you can guarantee will be the same from the first cut or style to your most recent.
