I was very fortunate to be a second shooter and assistant for the famous Neil van Niekerk this past October. Neil is one of the most well regarded photogs in this industry. Not only he is a great photographer but he ROCKS the on camera flash and has a book to prove it. Neil also goes out of his way to teach others through his other site, Planet Neil where he posts articles and tutorials about light, flash, metering, etc. and equipment reviews.
Believe me, the guy knows his stuff !!!!!
Now, not only was a loooong day (3 different locations and a hike to New Jersey), but thankfully Neil turned out also to be a fun person to hang around with (there are rumors of a couple of photogs singing Born in the USA and New York New York during the reception). I’m extremely grateful for all the knowledge he was able to impart (not only during the event, but also afterward with a “no holds barred” critique).
Below are some of my favorites of the day….
Neil also posted about this event, you can check it out here.
Thank you Neil and thanks to Mark again for the hook up !!!
