I was thinking for a while what I should post for women's day.

The vast majority of my dancers are young women. Every one of them deserves to be featured today. My job is to make women look amazing and showing the world how amazing they are. Bringing a smile to a dancer face when they see the photos of themselves is priceless! Today's post is featuring @teamabri a young dancer from Arizona. Her story and journey is touching, but what really impressed me is her resilience and the way she takes on her challenge. I did an interview with her last summer. Please have a look at my IGTV to check it out and see what an awesome young woman she is.

Awesome session with @avesnicoleflowers at the desert dunes. Just love how they turned out.

I have two spots available next Saturday/Sunday at this location! If you are in the Southern California or Arizona area, send me a message to set something up!

I should have made her jump through the water ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ’ฆ @kya_massimino

Hands-on Photography WorkshopAugust 30, 2020๐Ÿ“ท
David Hofmann (Sharkcookie) and Ron McKinney are excited to announce a joint indoor studio workshop on Sunday, Aug.

30, at Ronโ€™s Crystal Lake, IL, studio, and an outdoor on-location workshop in the Crystal Lake area.
The studio workshop will be from 12-3 pm at Ronโ€™s studio at 800 McArdle Drive, Crystal Lake IL. The outdoor location will be from 5-7:15 pm at a location near Crystal Lake to be announced later.
The studio workshop will focus on artistic edgy lighting, and how to use these type of dramatic lighting against against white backgrounds and black backgrounds. Ron and David will be instructing together throughout the studio workshop. Dancers will be provided so youโ€™ll want to bring your camera and get some portfolio-worthy shots during the workshop.
This is designed to be a small workshop with anywhere from around 8 to as many as 20 photographers participating. Ronโ€™s studio is 3,250 square feet. Due to the Corona virus restrictions, participants will need to wear a mask while indoors in Ronโ€™s studio. The dancers will not be wearing a mask while they are posing.
The outdoor workshop will also have about 8-20 photographers participating. David and Ron will be setting up the dancers, explaining why they pose the dancers in certain areas based on the lighting conditions and backgrounds. It will be an incredible opportunity to get inside the heads of Ron and David to understand why they make some of the decisions they make in which helps their images turn out so amazing. They will also talk about how they work with the dancers to bring out their very best poses and action shots.
Photographers attending the outdoor workshop are encouraged to bring their camera and get some portfolio-worthy images of our dancers.
The costs of the workshop is $250 for one workshop (either studio or outdoors) or $400 for both. Any images you take during the workshop can be used for social media and marketing.

Meet Kylie! Strength, talent and super fun to have in front of the camera ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ @kylie_kaminsky

@avajanelynn at my recent workshop in Los Angeles. Next workshops are in Dallas and Houston and Atlanta.

Meet Abri! She is a dancer. I found her Instagram a while ago and read her story about her fight with cancer and how she is now dancing through life on a prosthetic.

I finally got a chance to meet her in person and do both photos and an interview with her for an upcoming YouTube video. Abri is such a funny girl! We had a blast. @teamabri

Here we go! Today I'm starting my tour across the USA. This has been a dream since I was a teenager.

This just a rough plan. I'm probably going to visit many more places than this map. My first stop is Phoenix in Arizona. I have set up a workshop for photographers and booked a few photo sessions. (I still have a little time open if you are interested). I'm so excited about this! Can't wait to see all the amazing places, make friends on the way and document everything in photos!

Everyone needs a hand sometimes ๐Ÿ–๏ธ just finished a fun and creative photo shoot with this awesome and talented young lady!

@kylie_kaminsky

Yesterday I had a blast shooting with this little ball of energy and cuteness!

@the.real.miss.monroe

Today's photography workshop was a blast! We spent some time in the rain room as well as the art studio.

We experimented with different lighting setups. But most of all we had some awesome and talented dancers to work with! Thank you so much again for everyone who came despite the difficulties in our current situation.
