Mother’s Day – Glamour Photography – Gift Idea

The Best Gift Idea for Mother’s Day

Before you go out and buy another box of chocolate, or a T-shirt, lingerie, etc, etc… let me tell you a little story;

It’s not a secret that almost every child thinks their mother is one of the most gorgeous women alive.

I remember watching a show (Sesame Street – if I’m not mistaken) years and years ago, and there was this lost child looking for his mom.

In that story the child describes his mom as the most beautiful woman alive and every time someone brought a beautiful woman to him (asking if that was his mom), he replied that his mom was even more beautiful.

At the end he find his mom and people couldn’t believe that the “gorgeous” mom that the boy was talking about was nothing more than an old woman that lived on the streets.

I truly believe that most of kids look their moms that way, “the most gorgeous woman alive”.

Now, here is a great idea for the most amazing Mother’s Day Gift…

Mother's Day Promotion

How about we could make Mom feeling like “The Most Beautiful Woman Alive”?

First, She’ll come to our place (by herself or with a girlfriend – for a perfect “Girl’s Day Out”), where she’ll be pampered having her Hair and Makeup done. After that she’ll have a Glamour Photo Shoot done to show how beautiful she really is!

Every Woman deserves to have a beautiful portrait and see how gorgeous she really is.

Every person is worth that!

Executive Headshot – Office – Business Portrait

This week I was hired to do an Executive and Business Headshot in Fort Lauderdale.

The challenge is to recreate a studio condition at somebody’s office.

I brought five studio strobes, many different light modifiers, backdrops, reflectors, stands, etc, etc, etc (it took three trips with a marina car back to my car to bring everything to the office).

I know, it looks a little to extreme to bring that much equipment to a photo shoot, but I really like to do my best to recreate a “studio feeling” at people’s office.

It took me 4 hours to setup, shoot 25 Executive Headshots and break down. But the beauty of this system is that every person in that office only had to stop working for about 10 minutes.

The quality of these sessions are extremely important for your business…

“You don’t get a second chance to make a First Good Impression!”

Here is a sample of that session,

Photography Workshop – Apprentice for a Day

“Apprentice for a Day”

Apprentice for a Day72 

Sometimes it’s just helpful to watch another professional working (setting the lights, using different modifiers, checking white balance, posing clients and etc.) to gain insight, inspiration and confidence.

If you want to come to one of Paulo’s Photo Shoot Session to watch how he shoots or works with his clients, consider being an “Apprentice for a Day”!

Spend the day in hands on learning and ask Paulo any question you want – a no pressure way to see how to run a successful Photo Shoot as the photographer.


$400.00 – 1 to 4 hours Photo Shoot Sessions

Photography Class – Photography Workshop

The last 2 Sundays we’d sold out our “Three Hours Photography Class”.

When I started teaching this 3 hours class (Summer of 2011), the students and I would meet at a local park and we would try to enjoy the class as much as we could.

It didn’t take long to my clients start complaining  of the heat and asking me why not have these classes in my Home-Studio.

Now, we have 80% to 90% of the class here inside (with air-conditioning, water, bathroom break, etc), where I teach the clients how to improve their photography skills and stop using the camera in “auto mode”.

At the end, I do an oral “test” asking questions about photography and also simulating different scenarios (portrait, sports, travel, etc) to see how they would set their cameras for each situation.

Here is a group picture from our class from last Sunday…

Digital Photography Class – Workshop

Today I had another amazing group for my Digital Photography Class and Workshop.

It is really interesting noticing how every group is different from each other.

Today’s group had so many good questions and they even wanted to spend an extra hour so they could get all their questions answered.

Here is our group shot from today’s class…
