After a bit, the bipolar Missouri weather prompted us to move indoors, where we took over an art room, and met a very interesting character. He modeled for me, and even showed off some of his very impressive art!

Editorial Assignment 1 – Event

Afentra’s VD Party 2011.

The Limousines, AWOLNATION, and Fitz and the Tantrums.

VD Party is a free show hosted by 96.5 The Buzz every year at The Midland in Kansas City. It’s a fun-filled night of R-rated games, great music, and socializing. You just might find your true love at this show! Or at least company for the night.

My handy-dandy photo pass and I spent the evening in the photo pit being hit by shoes and balloons, cups of beer, and questionable items.

Just another night for a concert photographer.

Portrait Window Light – Assignment 1

New backdrop. Big windows. No model. Who do you call?

Mom. 

And her trusty sidekick Ninja Puppy. 

They did a wonderful job smiling and taking direction as I shot for the first Portrait assignment.

 Er.. Madre did. The lazy ol’ hound did not. She was fired.

Below are my favorite images from the afternoon. Go here  to see others from our day.
