I get many questions about wedding photography pricing and why I'm so expensive/inexpensive (depending on who is asking). I've tried both roads: upscale (but fair) pricing and ridiculously low pricing. The latter was in my early days of shooting when I didn't have that much experience. The former was when the economy was doing extremely well, I was experienced, and I felt I could ask for a fair price both for me and my customers. I've always been affordable. In fact, the first name of my studio back in 1996 was Affordable Photography. Now, as Pixels, I'm still super affordable but realize that I have to charge a certain amount to make ends meet.
This video is really aimed at photographers, but it offers great insight for engaged couples as to how much goes into your wedding photography and why we charge what we do. It's a lot more work than people think and really makes me wonder why my prices are so low! Book Pixels now before I watch too many more videos like this and my prices go up!

Well, I've added a new camera to my arsenal, the Canon 6D!
The 6D features a full-frame CMOS sensor and an incredible ISO range of 50-102,400. This will allow me to shoot in virtually every low-light condition. Weddings can present some of the most challenging lighting and this camera will make shooting wedding even more fun (if you can imagine!) Here is an image of my dog, Rosie lounging on my stairs. The image was shot at 25,000 ISO and looks really good - except for the dirty stairs, but the dogs are to blame for that!

Here are some great tips for taking photos of your very best friend - your pet. I like the idea of shooting in natural light and using a zoom lens. Of course, when I take out my camera and try to be discreet, my pets take a sudden interest in what I'm doing and want to be right next to me. I get a lot of close-ups this way. Learn to be patient and you'll get some great pet photographs you'll treasure forever.

At last year's Berkshire Hathaway Annual Shareholders Meeting, I took a photo of Warren Buffett and Brooks CEO Jim Weber next to a cardboard cutout of Mr. Buffett running through finish line tape. I spent a lot of time with the Brooks people and understand they sold a lot of shoes that day. Here is a photo of the Brooks people with Mr. Buffett:
The shoes had a special Berkshire Hathaway insert that made them quite unique. The Brooks people gave me a pair and they are probably the most comfortable running shoes I own. I look forward to seeing them again this year at the meeting, which takes place on May 4, 2013 at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha.
