Attention Photographers!


Hey everyone, I wanted to let you know that I was contacted several weeks ago about donating a 1 hour mentor session to an amateur or professional photographer looking to pick my brain on pretty much anything!  The cool thing is that 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go towards Breast Cancer Research!  I love that this profession of mine is so giving and caring and it's the least I can do to help! You can read more about the project here...

To sweeten the deal a little, I will also throw in my Dramatic Lighting DVD, My Unique Texture Set, and My Outdoor action set to the  lucky Winner!

It's for a great cause so let's do this!!
