A Boy A Girl A Bike and a DRAGON?
Tuesday night we headed out to Trout lake to photograph the Chaters Family and the engagement session of Andrea & Nik. After driving 400 miles on a dirt road, through Sasquatch invested forests, up and down death defying mountains and across shark infested marshes, we arrived at the beautiful property. We worked hard, we worked fast as the clouds were rolling in and shutting down our daylight right before our eyes. After creating some beautiful family portraits of the Chaters (blog post to follow) we then started the engagement portion of the session with a dragon. That’s right, Woody the bearded dragon. Note: To all fellow photographers looking to photograph a bearded dragon. Do not, I repeat do not convince the owner to take pictures outside with no leash. Why? Because they run away that is why. Little does Nik know but as I watched Woody mad dash towards the woods my heart sunk to the bottom of my stomach where it then tried very hard exit my body. What would be the chances of finding Woody after it rushed into woods? ummmmm. I would say zero. Good thing Nik is quick and on his game as Woody never had a chance leave the grass. PHEW!.
NoBS member and famed children’s photographer Sandy Puc’ has undertaken a daunting, if not amazing, challenge of assisting 1,000 photographers to get certified through PPA by 2011. “Because I believe that education is the answer to keeping our industry strong, I’ve created the Certify With Sandy Puc’ (CWSP) free educational program. The program will work through the Professional Photographic Certification Commission and help 1,000 photographers just like you get certified as a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP). Not only will you become a better photographer by improving your knowledge, but you will also have pride in yourself for achieving your goal. Not to mention, I will be your biggest fan!” said Sandy.

NoBS member Judy Cormier, owner of Elementz of Fotographie, currently has her first boudoir DVD collection on sale and NoBS members get a special introductory price.
As announced by Judy:
This set includes:
1. About a 30 minute video of me shooting a boudoir session in my very small studio environment.
2. Also a short video of me on location doing a couple’s Sizzle session.
3. I’ve also included a CD containing all of my documentation, including my contract, correspondence, a couple of album designs based on the two sessions on the DVD and my pricing packages.
Now you can buy these individually, however, I am offering all NOBS members a special price on the combined DVD/CD collection. The original price is $149.00 for both. NoBS members can get theirs for $129 with a special code posted on the NoBS forum.

yours in photography,
OMG…I LOVED IT!!!! I learned so much. Here is just a quick shot from today. I just through a bunch of stuff in there(still need rocks and more greenery), set up my lights like you said and look at my results. I am very happy. You are a great teacher!!!! Below is SOOC shot, only resized. I know it is too busy, but I was in a hurry. Now I need a kid.
Thank you very much! Julie
On behalf of Adrian & I, we would like to thank you for the webinar.
We both found it very informative…. Adrian has been a little bit amused because I have taken notes on both the ones we have attended.
I’m a note taker & he’s a watcher, we have different learning styles & the fairies webinars are great because we can both benifit from them.
We have both learned so much since we joined NoBS… in fact it would be hard to say what it is that we have gained most from
I am the principal Photoshop user & have struggled to figure it out on my own, but from the tutorials I have picked up so much & gone “Oh,duh that’s how it works” a LOT!
Adrian has more marketing & product widgets coming out of his head than he can coherantly work with
So thank you once again,
Faith.Adrian & Faith
