This past weekend I attended a shootout with 626 Studios. Carlos Villa was the lead photographer alongside Jeanette Villa the makeup artist. The shootout took place at the beautiful ALoft Hotel, and room 430 was our home-base. The day started out with five photographers and four gorgeous models getting to know each other with a few side lessons on aperture, shutter speed, and ISO. Before I knew it, it was 8:45 and time to pack up. We ended our night with a drink at the hotel bar to recap on such a wonderful day. For more information on future shootouts please email
