Show Notes:
As always, I did my best to support my special someone and she did a fantastic job working the runway in this show. Overall, I ended up taking well over 450 images as the pace was quick and the designers definitely kept the styles coming!

Aside from the packed club, music, models, and various scenes that played out on the runway, the most notable highlight occurred when a local up and coming rap artist introduced a new dance called the "drunk man" in which he began to stagger from side to side while nearly falling into the laps of the audience members.

Initially, audience members did not seem interested in the content of the song, as it provided a brief intermission during the show, but when the new dance was introduced, the young performer quickly had the crowd eating from his hands.

I would have captured a shot or two of this new dance had I not been in the middle of a battery change for my flash!

Finding The Right Photographer

Here's the scenario.  You are a hair stylist with a plan to showcase your skills and decide the best way to accomplish your goal is to either start or upgrade your image portfolio.  The first thing you do is identify a few clients who are willing to be hair models and begin dreaming up the styles to show off your diverse skills.  Next, you need a photographer, so you start asking around or you turn to someone you've worked with before.  
At this point everything seems to come together and all you need to do is lock in a shoot date and you are all set.  The problem is, your project may have been doomed the moment you selected your photographer - especially if you were only focused on the cost of the photography or the availability of the photographer.  
Here are a few important things to consider when selecting a photographer to help you capture the vision you have.
Don't get stuck on the price - usually the first thing a client asks about is price.  Unfortunately, prices ar…
