Road Trip: Photoshop World Vegas

1 Comment

I’m off for a week of playing in the sun of Las Vegas.  That is if you define “Playing in the Sun” as sitting in dark hotel conference rooms for several days.  Yes, it’s time for the annual trek to Photoshop World.  It’ll be great to meet up with some friends while improving my Photoshop chops.  Updates to the blog will probably be sporadic this week, but rest assured I’ll be keeping busy :)

Face Painting in the Studio

1 Comment

In preparation for a certain upcoming holiday that involves costumes and candy, I had a couple nice folks in the studio for a face-painting stock photo shoot. It was really cool to watch the artist work through the process of creating the mask on the young model’s face.  Watch for this series to show up in my stock image collection soon.

My friend Scott Bourne did a nice write-up yesterday on the Photofocus blog about me and being a stock photographer.  Thanks for the kind words, Scott!

Behind the Scenes Video: Theater Photo Shoot

10 Comments

Now here is something that I think is pretty cool. My good friend Nicole captured a bunch of video during my movie theater stock photo shoot earlier this year and has put together this ‘behind-the-scenes’ look for me to share. It’s a great way to see just how many people it takes to create some of the images that go into my stock portfolio. I couldn’t begin to do what I do without these awesome folks and their help.

Thanks Nicole for such a great video!

Faces Wanted: It’s Mugshot Madness in the Studio

7 Comments

Saturday August 21st, 2010 has been declared Mugshot Madness day at the RICH.LEGG.PHOTOGRAPHER studio in Draper.  I’m looking for faces to add to the collection of mugshots in my iStockphoto portfolio.  There will be a selection of costumes and a make-up artist & hair stylist on hand to help the participants get into character.

I want faces of any kind, since I will be photographing mugshots ranging from a ‘plain everyday look’ to heavily made-up characters.  In addition, if a participant has a profession that they’d be willing to portray, then by all means let’s do it!

Here are the details:

  • Who:  Anyone who wants to participate
  • What:  Mugshots taken for Stock Photos
  • When:  Saturday August 21, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
  • Where:  RICH.LEGG.PHOTOGRAPHER studio, 584 E 12300 South, Draper UT

Everyone who participates will need to sign a model release (or if under 18 have a parent/guardian sign) to allow the images to be used for sale on iStockphoto.  Each person will receive a copy of their mugshot(s) to use (non-commercially).  Take it from me, mugshots make a great profile pic on Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc. :)

If you’re interested in participating, please drop me an email at rich@leggnet.com.
