Wedding & Portrait Photographers International Vegas 2011

Wedding & Portrait Photographers
International Las Vegas 2011

This year WPPI, Wedding & Portrait Photographers International was a blast. From visiting with Past, Current & Future Sponsors; Doing Meet & Greets at sponsor booths; Joining Trevor Current of Current Photographer interviewing some incredible vendors ( OnOne Software, Pinhole Pro, WHCC, Moo, ImageQuix, Canvas On Demand, Tiffen, Animoto, Expo Imaging, Pro Mark, PhaseOne ) to name a few; Chatting with a friend from NYC, Author, Photographer and Speaker, Lindsay Adler discussing her new book “Fashion Flair for Portrait and Wedding Photography” which I’ve promised her I would review for her shortly; to shooting an incredible Retro OLD Vegas 50’s Inspired Fashion Shoot; our 4 days in Las Vegas retreated us well this year.

If interested, you can check out all of the great interviews on Current Photographer’s website.

Blog entry regarding my Retro 50’s Inspired Fashion Shoot while in Las Vegas will be posted very soon so keep checking back.

On a closing note, WPPI was put together very well with only a few exceptions. If you’re a Wedding or Portrait Professional Photographer or even amateur for that matter and have the time & some expendable cash I would highly recommend attending the conference next year in 2012; You won’t be disappointed!

PhaseOne Interview

Telemundo / NBC 6 TV Segment with Joseph Cristina & Fabiola Cristina forcing on their "Classy Not Trashy" Boudoir Photography Sessions

Classy Boudoir Photography Behind The Scenes TV Segment

NBC 6 / Telemundo 51 Miami

Previously we were interviewed by The TodayShow for what I call my “Classy Not Trashy” Boudoir Photography. Just recently we were approached by a producer from NBC 6 / Telemundo 51 Miami to do a full segment regarding this specific form of photography.

Boudoir Photography should force the photographer to create images that flatter their client and do so in a classy manor but over the years I saw so many “boudoir photos” that in my mind did the contrary. I made it my goal to bring the Classy back to Boudoir Photography and it’s my hope this thought can be seen within my boudoir photographs.

Like all other forms of portraiture, Boudoir Photography does allow for surreal themes, playfulness and artistry with styling seen within the pages of todays top fashion magazines.

With a strong collaboration between The Client, My Beautiful Wife, Fabiola, Licensed Cosmetologist / Hair & Makeup Artist and myself professional photographer we create images that are truly timeless.

I’ve been told by clients that our sensual photography sessions are life transforming events and many women have returned years later for followup sessions as a way to document their life’s journey of self discovery!

We are located in Sunny South Florida Palm Beach County but travel the country and even worldwide sharing our gifts.

From Fine Art, Boudoir, Modeling and Commercial Photography project, I would like to welcome all to contact me for more information. Enjoy the segment!

On Location “Run & Gun” Test Hasselblad H4D-40 Medium Format Digital Camera

Run & Gun was my theme – Unlike many, I decided to detach this $27,000 camera kit from it’s umbilical cord and shot untethered with high speed UDMA SanDisk 16gb & 32gb Memory Cards.

At $1,000/hr for location costs, it was both Awe-Inspiring & Exhilarating at the same time! I can not say enough about the team of 11 creatives whom collaborated on this project to make it happen! Thank you all!

This video is simply a fast paced “Run & Gun” depiction of the Fashion Shoot testing the Hasselblad H4D-40 Medium Format Digital Camera. I hope you enjoy it.
