These were taken at the Raheem Devaughn / Dru Hill concert at the Ohio State Fair on July 31. I smuggled my camera in with one of my smaller portraiture lenses, but I was still able to get off some decent shots because of my location in the audience.

The real trick was NOT getting caught by security because you have to provide credentials in order to bring "professional" cameras. I find that funny because 90% of the audience takes pictures and videos with their smartphones. Oh well. Such is life. Hope you enjoy them.

It being his 22nd birthday, my youngest asked me for an in-studio photo shoot. Here are just a few samples (I'll leave the rest for him to share) from the session.

They're growing up too quickly....

Wishing a Happy Birthday to "the baby", Jason (Horseman #4)!

Words can't properly describe the joy I have in my heart, knowing my work has been used for someone's CD cover.

Congratulations Zayne Harshaw of Blue Spectrum on the release of your debut CD (which is fire, by the way)!

And thank you for the private listening session, autographed copy and the blessing and honor of photographing you!

People keep telling me that I need to use a real picture on my blog as opposed to the Bitmojis.

I set the camera up for a selfie and the results made me realize something...

I never liked being on the other end of the lens. LOL

This being National Squirrel Appreciation Day, figured I'd share a photo from my days as a new photographer.

I caught this little guy while shooting on the lake. Turned around and dude stopped to pose for me. That or he was threatening to give me the business...

I absolutely love this! I got this text message from his mother today. It's been weeks since the shoot and all he's been talking about is coming back for more.

And yes, I'm everybody's "Uncle Kenny". LOL

How To Get Those Extra Shots!

Even in photography, you can only hold a child's interest and attention for so long. It worked out that he was a Michael Jackson lover, dancing through several songs, allowing me to take additional photos.

Children are the most adorable models.

These are a few photos from my shoot with the amazingly gifted "Insane" Zayne Harshaw, leader of the group, Blue Spectrum (No, he's not actually on stage. This was done in my studio.).

I've had the pleasure of photographing his group on multiple occasions, but this was the first time I could get him into my studio! What an awesome time...

Haven't done a photo merge in a while.  Shot in burst mode (no flash) with a tripod.

Ok, let me get this right...

FIVE of you gave me grief because my Bears (who are already struggling) lost to Baltimore, hurting your divisional position. Yet you lost tonight. ANNNNND you're the only team to let the winless Lions battle you to a tie.

To quote Flava Flav: "YOU built this maze you can't get through..."

You're lucky we didn't beat you TOO. LMAO

Been awhile since I've given this page some love. Sorry, folks.

My boy Steve invited me over for some football and pool today. Since my Bears are licking their wounds in a bye week, I asked if I could bring my camera and my flash equipment to tryout some ideas for a future shoot (already got our model and concept in mind).

In honor of today's Black Cinema selection ("Carmen Jones"), I'd like to share a few photos from my session with my son's friends, Tania & Ibou.

I've always loved their relationship, so I used my favorite couple pic of all time, Harry Belafonte and Dorothy Dandridge, as my inspiration for this shoot.

The "Young Love" Shoot

Let's bring some joy to this Valentine's Day by looking back at one of my favorite shoots from 2020. Click here: https://flow.page/zootsblogspot

Read the story behind the shoot and check out a few of the photos from that fun-filled October afternoon.

From a recent family photo shoot with husband and 4 generations of beautiful women. It's been such a wonderful journey, capturing this couple's adventures since their wedding.

Think I just might blog about their story in an upcoming Cameradventures...

Whenever I'm on a shoot, I can always count on my boys to do more than set up lighting. After Kevin adjusted the softbox (hidden, off to the left), he posed for some quick test shots while my subject was in costume-change mode behind me. I love working with my sons because it allows for one-on-one (and free eatz!) time with them after.

I'm as excited as she is and extremely grateful for the honor of being the one to capture her.

ZootShoot Photography is an LLC.

I can't tell you how frustrating it is when people ask me to shoot for free or ask for a "look out for a brotha" half off hookup.

If you didn't ask that of other photography studios, please don't ask that of me.

I can't be competitive and survive, giving you for little-to-nothing, what you'd gladly pay full price for with others.
