I had the pleasure of sitting down with photographer Scott Robert Lim as he shared his story of starting out as a natural light wedding photographer to adopting strobes for killer wedding and portrait shots. I discovered Scott after seeing him on Creative Live demonstrating his technique. I watched it and started practicing his technique, right away creating exciting images. I knew I had to get Scott over for interview and let him tell his own story.

Big thanks to designer Priscilla Taylor and models Sally Drennon, Lisa Arden, Adele Sylvester, Lisa Carrier, Brandy Snow, Donna Grillo, Nancy Sullivan and Lisa Peach. Yes, three Lisas. Here are a few of my favorites:

I'm grateful to have friends who went along with my idea to donate cash to be used as a photo prop then given to ALS research. The $1000 in twenty dollar bills seen in the tryptic above was donated after the shoot to the Northeast ALS Consortium (NEALS) a non profit group of researchers who collaboratively conduct clinical research in ALS. Thanks to Richard & Nicole D'Ovidio, Lorie & Kerry Bartron, Priscilla Taylor & John Hosack, Liza Shtromberg & Akira Mizutani, Mark Pogachefsky, Kevin Elam & Mary Marcus, Richard Wirth, Lisa & Rob Peach, Kim Barbieri & Janet Howard and Steve Dayan & Shannon Curfman for their generosity. Special thanks to Donna Grillo and Ed Kennedy on shoot day.
