Monday November 21st, 2011 Doubletree Hotel, Oakbrook, Illinois
Yes, I enjoy shooting the sporting events and yes, I enjoy the calendar Photo sessions but ...I may not always get the "hit shot" I want but I always get fair fight images and I always said when you are working with beautiful people as long as you nail the exposure , it's going to be a somewhat fair image.
Monday's photo session for Battleware Technology at the ITOA ( Illinois Tactical Officers Association) has me feeling really good about my choosen career. As Commercial Photographers we don't always get to choose our subjects , ones that look interestering to our eyes but need to follow what our clients needs. It's our job to make everything look interesting and thanks to the people at College of Dupage years ago (I am sure someone could have "shot" better) but I feel pretty darn good about the images captured in a small hotel room with a little table setup...Thanks Miles, Terry and everyone else at COD for your guidance years ago.
Here's a few quick picks of the session;
Check out the good people at Battleware Technology's facebook page , they will be working on a 2012 calendar that will be something special and you can vote on the pick for the month. Not all of us need Body Armor and weapons but all of us need the Battleware's customers, police and military tactical units to be prepared.
