The Grind Workshop

I had a wonderful time attending the Grind workshop here in Detroit.  It was put on by Andy Armstrong of design|house. He offers some amazing actions and templates. There’s also a wealth of information on his website for using photoshop.

We had a great group of people and models over the 2 days. So much learning and fun. One of the model couples were friends of mine.  Shana and Jason.  Jason is also in a band and available to book for shows and events, check out his site, www.jasonpyzik.com Here are a couple of their images. I will post some of the other models after I receive their model releases.

That darn rain… – Michigan senior photographer

Rachel came in for her senior portraits that weekend we had the non stop rain.  We weren’t able to do any photos outside, but she came back a few days later and we got some outside as well.

Look at those eyes… – Detroit senior photographer

Samantha is a recent Highschool Senior that I photographed.  I thought she had the most gorgeous blue eyes.  We had a great time in studio then headed to a local park for more photos.  I loved soo many from this session it was hard to narrow them down.  Here are a few of my many faves.
