I'm posting from the phone so this is going to be a bit short. Thanks to everyone who came out for the portrait special.

Again, thanks much, I expect to have your prints delivered on Monday. --Doug
This morning while doing my routine waste of time on the Web, I checked in on my stats at Flickr.com. Much to my surprise, one of my photographs had been seen over

Twelve. That's how many weekends you get in a summer. Only twelve. For nine solid months you wait to live out your measly twenty-four days of twenty-four hours apiece. Eight hours of each of those days you'll probably sleep through. And then, as quickly as they arrived, they're gone. Wow—the summer is even shorter than I thought! People might call me crazy for getting up at 3:45 on a summer morning just to take pictures. Given how little truly personal time I have, I think I'd have to be crazy not to.
The grass is green, it's warm outside, and for as much as you can trust a weather man, it looks like this Saturday morning (May 30) will be a great time for some outdoor shooting! I'm looking for three male and three female models between the ages of 16-30 from near Salt Lake City who are interested in adding quality shots from an outdoor portrait session to their portfolio (and mine)...
