Where’s Sandstone Photographers Been Lately?

I’m not certain how many of you know this, but besides working at Sandstone with Joanne, Steven and I also do double duty as the Co-Editors of ProPhotoWest Magazine, the award winning quarterly publication of the Professional Photographers of California http://www.prophotoca.com  So, every three months or so, we suddenly get swamped with work related to the magazine, which is lots of fun, but really crazy-hectic at the same time. In my opinion, putting together the magazine is a lot like having a baby. The work is hard and completely consuming, with the time required to complete the task finite, but in the end, the final results are so worth it! We’ve even been accused of beaming at our new little magazine like proud parents. Maybe that’s because sometimes we almost feel like we are!

Our First Pro Photo West Issue

 

You can check out the PDF version of our inaugural issue at http://napi.net-flow.com/prophotoca.com/pubs_display_story_object.php?ID=183

Our Autumn issue is in the works now, and is scheduled to ship from the printer in early October. Check back then for an update on how it all went, and a link to that issue too.

So, what does Joanne do while Steven and I are off selling ads, chasing down contributors, and creating the actual magazine! Anything she wants!

As it turns out, this is the perfect time for her to hone her photographic and artistic talents by working on pet projects, very close to her heart. If you have the time, take a moment to check out her latest efforts, coming here very soon.

And what about Jarett, you may be asking yourself? He’s been busy leading his own life, preparing for his freshman year of college at Santa Monica, moving into his first apartment, practicing with the varsity football team, and registering for Fall courses. So he hasn’t been shooting as much as he (or I) would like. However, he does have a glamour shoot scheduled with two beautiful professional models; Laura and Eryka of the California Ring Girls. So, he’ll be getting back behind the lens here very soon. - Peg

  

Steven Does It Again! (Earns International Awards)

I really shouldn’t be surprised. And I’m not. Not really. But I guess sometimes I forget how really good a photographer Steven really is.  Well, this week I got a nice reminder. What a way to jog the old memory banks, huh?!

Congratulations Babe. You did good! - Peg
