    It is spring and great new things are coming our and your way. Isn’t that exciting? Sometimes, however, we don’t feel that way. Sometimes we are ready to throw in the towel. How to we get past that point and get our drive back?

    This was a conversation I had with my friend and mentor, Tony Corbell, recently and wanted to share that with you. You can listen to our conversation on “The Phototellers” show.

    Profoto – The Light Shaping Company

    Good day,

    Profoto_Logo_Tagline_Black_RGB

    I am excited to announce that Profoto is new sponsor to  Find Your Focus Photographic Education and I am now a member of the Profoto pro Team. As a lighting guy, and one that teaches on the “Art and Science of Lighting“, it is an incredible honor to partner with a company like Profoto.

    I have been using Profoto heads, remotes and modifiers for almost 10 years now and after using several other brands before, I can honestly say these are the best lighting tools on the market. The D1 heads offer dependable and accurate light output and color. The variety of modifiers and the ease at which they can be switched out is a game changer and of course the power of the remote along with integrated radio receivers  allows me to work with my client and not my lights. Finally with the integration the B1 and B2 line of heads, I can work anywhere without wires. To learn more, I hope to see you at my upcoming events.

    Check out all the great tools and products that Profoto offers at Arlington Camera.

    Happy creating.

    Grateful to give back

    Good morning,

    Deanna and I never argue, well, let me rephrase. We always agree on the fact that we are to give back. We believe we are blessed to be a blessing.

    One of the charities we are honored to support is Make A Wish. Feeling grateful that we were featured on the local news. Happy creating.
