PBX PhotoWalk - Las Vegas, NV

Join us at PhotoBooth Expo in Las Vegas!

It’s time to let your Photo Booth cameras out of their cages! Join us on this social photowalk spiked with a little photography learning.

Our special guest leader this year is Robert Trawick, the most experienced wedding photographer in Oklahoma and lighting connoisseur. He loves to laugh, tell jokes and drink coffee along with demonstrating an easy to understand approach of lighting on location. The Las Vegas strip is a cornucopia of humanity so you can be positive to have some interesting characters to shoot. Then again, maybe we can bring a model or two for practice!

We will start our adventure in the Key Seminar Room 1 for a quick intro before heading out on the monorail. Our first stop will be “Bally’s & Paris Station” and a short walk to the Eiffel Tower and the iconic Fountains of Bellagio. This will be a great time with play with an extreme wide-angle lens for the views and a medium telephoto for environmental portraits. We will talk about “dragging the shutter” technique with flash for background and motion.

We will head back to the “Bally’s & Paris Station” for a short monorail trip to “MGM Grand” and a block away from the crossover bridge to New York - New York. On the bridge over Las Vegas Blvd, we have an excellent view of the strip and cityscape. It will time to get creative creating backdrop images using hyper-focus distance and bokeh with long focal length lenses. Of course, adding a splash of flash never hurts either with people photos overlooking the bustling traffic below.

The last stop will be the wonderful Statue of Liberty and time to answer all your questions from the trip or review any demo techniques. We are aiming to end around 8pm and you can take advantage of the crosswalk system to head over to the Tropicana to enjoy the Mobile Beat Show.

Bring your favorite camera, lenses, flash and tripod. Please dress according to your needs for the local conditions. Some people are happy in shorts and t-shirt at 50 degrees, while others need an arctic jumper suit to stay war. Don’t forget your comfortable walking shoes, but choosing to wear “fashionable” heeled boots or 6” stilettos will garner extra praise and attention. When in doubt, be sure to contact Robert directly with questions and/or creative images of the heels.

Crazy Train PhotoWalk - OKC to Fort Worth, TX

Twins_001.jpg

The FotoFacts Twins, Rob & Jim, are taking an unusual PhotoWalk to Fort Worth, Texas on Sunday morning after PhotoCon.  This is a great way to end your weekend of inspiration, education and incredible trade show.

We will meet at the newly remodeled Santa Fe Depot station in Oklahoma City at 8:00 am to grab the Heartland Flyer to Fort Worth, Texas.  If you wish to join us from another city, the train stops in Norman, Purcell, Pauls Valley, Ardmore, and Gainesville.  

While on the train, we will be pushing out a LIVE FotoFacts episode to recap Bedford PhotoCon, answer photography questions and discuss current issues.  We are hoping to get permission from Amtrak to have an impromptu hands-on camera control class.  Because of baggage restrictions, this class will focus on what you can bring on board the train.  It will be geared towards solving lighting and exposure issues on a moving subject without backup support systems.  We are looking forward to seeing what selection of equipment shooters choose to carry.

We arrive in Fort Worth at 12:30 pm to be greeted by our Texas host, Xavier & Patrice from Photos on the Vine - the ultimate place for education and studio rental in the area.  This dynamic duo will be bringing Interfit Photographic lighting, XP PhotoGear modifiers, and Vanguard USA tripods for our group to use during the visit.

During our day escape from Oklahoma, we will “work” a small area of this famous downtown.  The city blocks surrounding the train station are filled with the hidden alleyways, tall buildings, wonderful architecture, and urban life.  We will focus on the stunning Water Gardens, St. Patrick Cathedral, and Convention Center.  Armed with equipment from our support staff, you will sure to create wonderful images to build your portfolio.

The train leaves promptly at 5:25 pm for the return back to Oklahoma City by 9:27 pm.  This will get you another chance to socialize and recoup from the day’s activities.  Don’t forget, this can be an incredible time to capture some onboard portraits of fellow photographers while enjoying no driving back to the city.

IF you are riding the train from OKC to Fort Worth - Be sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time!  Cost and details of the Heartland Flyer are available on Amtrak.com.  Choose UPPER LEVEL when booking your ticket!

Are you frozen by fear with Social Media?  You are not alone!  Come out and Join Us for an evening of learning with Indian Nations PPA in Tulsa

In today’s business world everyone is talking about social media as the key to success in business. What is being called “social media” is lots of media but not so much social. Having a multifaceted marketing strategy will keep your business moving forward despite economic downturns.

Social Media is not the sole answer to a business marketing plan but only a fraction of the traction needed to stay on the road to success mile after mile. While this isn’t a presentation on a full attack plan for your client acquisition strategy, it will be a great start to understand what needs to be planned for your future.

Robert will guide you on the understanding of Social Media, the 3 big platforms useful for photographers, and 5 things to start today to push forward. It’s the New Year and it’s time for a new approach to making a positive difference.

Come join us for an evening of networking, learning, and humor while changing our approach to finding clients online. This class is aimed at creatives of all skills levels. Bring your note-taking tools, questions, a desire to learn and your own coffee or beverage of choice. A gift of coffee for Robert can expedite answers to your questions. Hecklers are welcome with special seating at the rear. Fruit may be provided for snacking or throwing.

Studio in a Bag

Starting the New Year is a great time to revisit the single most important aspect of photography, LIGHT!

We will start with a quick review of how light works and then dive in to a basic light kit that you can grab to create stunning images easily.  Robert will show you the minimum gear to load up into you “Studio in a Bag” and which items will get you the best bang for the buck.  You will be surprised what can be accomplished with one small light.

This class is focused on practical lighting that is useable immediately without getting into the technical jargon that slows down newcomers to off-camera lighting.  We will walk you through the good, bad and the ugly of the different basic tools needed and how to use them from setup to tear down.  You will have an opportunity to get your hands dirty and shoot using this basic setup.

Bring your camera, a 50mm lens (or similar), note taking supplies and an open mind.   You will walk out filled with the right information to the images you want with very little equipment.  The secret to great photography isn’t the gear… it’s maximizing what you know about light!  Come join us for an inspiriting evening and get ready for a fabulous year of creating stunning pictures.

Blinding Light Workshops - Location Edition

Blinding Light Workshops - Location Edition

Here is Part Deux of the Blind Lighting series where we are taking the challenge to the streets of Handley.  We are not sure if Rob & Terri will be aware of the model/subject for the evening workshop, but instead of indoors they will work in the dark of night.  Rob will guide you in an easy to understand technique during this hands-on location shoot where you play an integral part of the final image.  You will also get Terri’s posing tips & tricks to minimize any subject’s perceived flaws and show their best for the camera.

You will have a front-row seat to the wildest demonstration of a photographer’s skill and talent as they craft a portrait of the subject with your help in TWO hours.  And since we know Robert loves to talk, the clock will be ticking the moment he takes the floor, helping him focus on the ticking clock.  When we talk about helping, we are saying you will be hands-on assisting during the shoot.  The whole class will collaborate thru the idea, the planning and shooting of the portrait.  One of the most effective ways to learn is working together on a common project.  

Robert and “his team” (that’s you!) will have two hours to craft the image using only what is available on location or loaded in their car.  Since you are part of the team, we ask that each person bring their camera, favorite lens, a battery powered light or flash and ONE crazy prop / item that could get used in the styling of the session.  Be creative and use your imagination but nothing larger than a carry-on suitcase. 

The Trawicks are supported by the fine providers of photographic gear that will make this event possible.

Arlington Camera is teaming up with Photos on The Vine in providing an educator’s worst nightmare for the Trawicks and you can be there to learn firsthand how this dynamic duo work in real life photography portrait scenario.  The hidden key to this new workshop series is our educators are not aware of the type of subject, model, clothing, styling, etc.  They will not even know if the subject is human!  

You will have a front-row seat to the wildest demonstration of a photographer’s skill and talent as they craft a portrait of the subject with your help in TWO hours.  And since we know Robert loves to talk, the clock will be ticking the moment he takes the floor, helping him focus on the ticking clock.  When we talk about helping, we are saying you will be hands-on assisting during the shoot.  The whole class will collaborate thru the idea, the planning and shooting of the portrait.  One of the most effective ways to learn is working together on a common project.

PJs & Pixels - Stilettos, Satin Sheets & Hot Shoes

 

This workshop is presented as part of PPA Super One Day events

 

Course #OK01
Terri Trawick

Location: 21C Hotel in Oklahoma City, OK

Get ready for a casual learning experience surrounded by comfortable PJs, good coffee and sweet treats with the talented boudoir image creator, Terri Trawick. This is the full day expanded workshop of her popular "Boobs, Boys & Bokeh" program with hands-on lighting, posing and portfolio building. 

Terri will start the day's event with best business basics, wonderful client workflow, and girlie gorilla marketing. She will review the top 10 professional rules to help you succeed in this unique arena of portraiture. Terri will also dispel a few "male enhanced" myths that may hinder your happiness and progress. Of course, many of those misconceptions surround the gear we are "told" are needed to produce professional results, so a review of the best bokeh gear from lighting to lenses is included and will probably shock most with the affordability to jump-start your business. In any style of photography, light is 90% of the created image and has the greatest impact on the resulting client emotion to the finished print. Terri will guide you to an understanding of quintessential techniques to control the monster of shadows no matter if you are a natural, available or flash shooter. Learn about modifiers that exist everywhere and the ones you have to pay to use.  

On the second part of this education party, we will get "between the sheets" and practice with real live models in a real-world "No Studio Booty" photo shoot. Bring your camera gear and kick off your bunny slippers so we can up the game with serious trigger time for portfolio building. Terri will demo the top 10 Good, Bad and No-No poses while working through with each and every client regardless of body type. You will walk away confident in your ability to beautifully create photography your clients will love.

Terri encourages you to wear your comfy clothes and bring your favorite morning drink or enjoy some great coffee provided. Boys are welcome to attend but remember this one is female-focused. Girl Shooters Rule!

*Note: Please email 5 favorite images to Terri after sign-up and BEFORE class date for critique during the presentation.

Robert Trawick and Jim Felder are the FotoFacts Twins - Listen to our podcast and find out why.

Come join the FotoFacts Podcast guys & the staff from Bedford Camera for the greatest Oklahoma Photowalk experience in 2017.  This year, we head back to Oklahoma City’s western roots in the Stockyards for that good ol’ rugged cowboy look and the smell of cattle in the World’s Largest Stocker & Feeder Cattle Market.

Stockyards City was founded October 3, 1910, and was built to serve the nation as a primary source for meat processing and packing. By 1915, Morris, Wilson, and Armour all established huge packing facilities to slaughter the cattle, hogs, and sheep which were transported first by cattle drive and later by railroad and truck. The area’s nickname for a time was “Pack’ntown.” By 1961, faced with complete overhaul and updating of equipment, the packing plants decided to close. However, the Stockyards still retains its profitable cattle trading and related businesses. Since its founding, Stockyards City has been the place for cattlemen, horsemen, farmers, ranchers and real cowboys to come for apparel, equipment, supplies, a good meal, and the opportunity to catch up on what was going on over a cold sarsaparilla with fellow cattlemen.

We plan to meet for drinks/dinner after the walk at the newly opened McClintock Saloon & Chop House at 7:30 pm.  The local owners and management of McClintock’s have spent more than a year carefully researching, designing and creating this one-of-a-kind dining experience – complete with an amazing 50-foot long hand-crafted oak and brass bar and a commissioned painting of a prone, scantily-clad young lady just like the old West.

Everyone is welcome to attend, regardless of skill level, and we encourage photographers to bring their family since this is a wonderful opportunity to socialize, network, learn and enjoy our city’s culture.

XPerience EXPOSURE

Great light surrounds you. The subject is perfect. The moment is right. Your mind tingles with anticipation. Click! ... dark. Click! ... too light. Click! ...still too light. Click! ...why is this too dark now? I just changed everything. @#%&!!!! And the moment is gone forever.

Your camera is just a dumb box... OK, maybe an expensive dumb box that is useless without fully understanding the inverse relationship of the three exposure controls along with proper metering. Yes, you read that right.

METERING

You know, the little lights that flicker back and forth inside the viewfinder along some scale you don't remember. The internal camera guide that is never right. Yeah, the one you don't really use cause "I'm a pro and we only shoot in manual.”

Let Robert help you XPerience Exposure through the right use of ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed, while understanding what the meter is really telling you. Learn the camera meter's sole purpose in life, as well as it’s handheld twin with it’s own unique functions.

Register now for this fun, casual and information packed program. Bring your enthusiasm, questions, and favorite dance moves. Skeptics and hecklers encouraged to attend with special seating in the back of the room. Fruit may be provided

PS: for the "professionals" that only shoot in manual mode... Why do professional cameras have program, aperture priority, and shutter priority modes? Please sign the petition in the back of the room to demand a refund from camera manufacturers for superfluous (aka useless) controls on our professional cameras.

Sample of Terri's work from a session on Borbon Street in New Orleans, LA

In this special events photography class, attendees will learn the Basics of Boudoir Photography.

Teri Trawick is owner of Audacious Images in Oklahoma City, Ok. She will be teaching this class on how to create elegant, provocative intimate portraiture. “In today’s world we are bombarded daily by what “beauty” is and we are brain washed into believing that you must be a certain age or size or shape or… whatever to be “beautiful”. Here’s the deal; every woman is born beautiful and unique and true beauty is not external. Beauty is an internal confidence that just has to be brought out. Being sexy has absolutely nothing to do with being a size “0”…is that really even a size, I mean “0” really?!?

Our specialty is taking “REAL” woman and bringing that inner sensuality to the surface. We strive to help every woman embrace everything she is and explore anything she wants to be.”  Teri Trawick

Terri will review the top 10 things to know as a professional to help you succeed, as well, as dispel photography myths that hinder our happiness. She will explain some of the best bokeh gear, girlie gorilla marketing, and secrets to boudoir business. How about learning the easiest way to shoot with flash? Yeah, it’s covered and takes less than 10 minutes to review. You might just find a pearl or two learning how women think. Girl Shooters Rule! This special class will cover the consultation with the customer, booking the session and then how to create the most audacious poses for a boudoir session. There will be a photo shoot during the class with a trained model so that you will see the right way to pose for a boudoir.

Bring your camera to shoot along with Teri during this special event!

Space is Limited, 10 total spots available for this special hands on shooting event.

Groupons will not be accepted for this special event

This class is a BYOB event. Attendees have the option to bring their own bottle of wine and appetizers to enjoy during the class. A Perfect Blend of Creativity, Conversation and Learning.

Then Robert will jump right into the use of speed light on camera and off camera. The class will have an opportunity to use flash modifiers so that everyone can get a firsthand experience on how they work and what they can do for your images. We will work with some fun modifiers like Multi-Flectors, Snoots, Gels, Honeycomb Grids, and the Speedbox 60.

This Photo Walk is for all levels and skill set.

What to bring:

  • Camera
  • Speedlight (if you have one)

All speedlight modifying tools are supplied.

Robert Trawick is experienced in all aspects of the craft, from large format cameras to 70mm motion picture film processing. There is a lot of information in his head just waiting to bubble out, and once it's flowing, stand back ’cause something is going to power your light bulb! His experience as a USAF Photojournalist coupled with extensive worldwide travels and interactions with diverse cultures provide Robert with unique abilities to reach and teach anyone at any level. Specializing in weddings, bridal fashion, and commercial advertising, Robert constantly strives to balance light, shadow, focus and color into images that magically transports the viewer to the emotion of the moment. Robert is a nationally recognized speaker and is sponsored by InterfitVanguard, and XP PhotoGear.  Robert is also the co-host for FotoFacts Podcast, a casual iTunes audio show highlighting photo education, industry leaders, and charities.

Call Sheet for Event with Location Details

Light can be found, Light can be created or Light can be blended. How you use LIGHT will define you as a photographer through your images. This workshop is geared towards anyone in photography, regardless of skill level, desiring to push the limits of creative, portable lighting. Isn't it time for you to invest to see LIGHT?

We will walk you through the FIVE characteristics of EVERY light that photographer must consider before hitting the shutter.

Experience a live product shoot & creative portrait session, learning tips for stunning story telling through light selection using XP PhotoGear's incredible line of MicroBoxes and SpeedBoxes. What you carry in the camera bag will change how you command light. We will demo the versatility of small flash units to create quality images with impact your clients will fall in love with. Learn about the THREE modifiers to always have on hand to quickly change light from dull to spectacular.

Get your hands dirty practicing with clean light modifiers and SpeedBoxes that go from bag to stand in under 60 seconds. We will give you the tools, easily to understand, to select, setup and shoot dramatic images that will take your photography to the next level.

Fort Worth PPA - PJs & Pixels

Fort Worth PPA - PJs & Pixels

EVENT HOST - Fort Worth PPA

PJs & Pixels - Boobs, Boys, and Bokeh

Get ready to laugh and learn in a casual "Girls' Morning" surrounded by comfortable PJs, good coffee, and bagels with the talented boudoir photographer, Terri Trawick - Audacious Images.

Even though women outnumber the male counterpart in professional photography, we learn differently and are consistently criticized for our equipment choices more than our creative skills. Add in the multiple roles of mother, wife, girlfriend, or even grandmother to the long list of duties as a professional and the "job" can be overwhelming. The struggle is real.

Terri will review the top 10 things to know as a professional to help you succeed, as well, as dispel photography myths that hinder our happiness. She will explain some of the best bokeh gear, girlie gorilla marketing, and secrets to boudoir business. How about learning the easiest way to shoot with flash? Yeah, it’s covered and takes less than 10 minutes to review.

I encourage you to wear your favorite PJs but remember that we are still in a public place so go for loose and comfortable. Bring your favorite morning drink or enjoy some great coffee we will provide with some bagels. Boys are welcome to attend in a special "cry room" in the back. You might just find a pearl or two learning how women think. Girl Shooters Rule!

2017 PhotoWalk with SWPPA Convention

2017 PhotoWalk with SWPPA Convention

Lights, Camera, Tripod WALK

Have you ever sat quietly during an inspiring speaker just itching to go outside and practice the techniques learned? If you are thinking to yourself “Yes! That happens all the time” - then we have the cure. And we will throw in some easy cardio workout for free!

Join Robert and crew for the social photography event of the convention. We will start with a funny spirited introduction outside the hotel entrance before beginning our Photo Walk Safari hoping to spot fabulous models and maybe some “steel” horses. The walk will happen regardless of the weather, just like if you had to shoot to stay on schedule with clients. In fact, some of the most dramatic images will be created when you choose to work “outside the box” or your comfort zone in difficult lighting or weather. Of course, your safety is paramount, so we will stay indoors if the lighting strikes are within 3 miles or a tornado is spotted a few blocks away. You are in Oklahoma Dorothy.

We will discuss lighting on the go using the InterFit Photographic systems, modified by XP PhotoGear Speedboxes while stabilized on a Vanguard USA tripod. This is the gear Robert uses daily for everything from commercial to portraits and from “dragging the shutter” to “High Speed Sync”. Regardless of what camera brand you choose to use, Robert has a solution for your shooting problems.

Bring your favorite camera, lenses, flash and tripod. Please dress according to your needs for the local conditions. Some people are happy in shorts and t- shirt at 50 degrees, while others need an arctic jumper suit to stay war. Don’t forget your comfortable walking shoes, but choosing to wear “fashionable” heeled boots or 6” stilettos will garner extra praise and attention. When in doubt, be sure to contact Robert directly with questions and/or creative images of the heels. 

Please Thank Our Sponsors &
