Scott Robert Lim | Lighting Workshop | Chicago Illinois Photography Workshop

I had the pleasure this summer to attend a fabulous workshop in Chicago with the amazing photographer

Scott Robert Lim

This was the view from our room @ the Allerton Hotel in Chicago


I traveled with a few very talented  photographer friends of mine from the Madison area.

{Ok enough of the name dropping}

All in all we had a wonderful trip & learned a lot from Scott.  He is just full of knowledge, advice & gives so much of himself back to our community.

It was my first workshop with SRL & I look forward to more in the future!

Not to mention Chicago as a city is just lovely!

This has been a crazy past few weeks full of sessions, engagement parties – turned weddings & getting ready for my little guy to start Kindergarten. (whaa?)

We actually received their backpacks today in the mail & OMgosh simply adorable.

mr. gabe = kindergarten



miss. lucy = first year of preschool



I can not believe how fast they grow up, geesh.



There have been a lot of useful articles and/or links circulating recently & I thought it would be helpful to do a small BLOG post with this links all in one location.

If you are a photographer & don’t know who Jeff & Allison Rodgers are you have been living under a rock .  Sorry it is true.  They are fabulous & offer some amazing things for photographers, check out lbobi : the little blog of big ideas

Photogs, Photogs & MORE Photogs

Being a part of this industry not only means that we get to meet & photograph amazing clients but we as Professional Photographers also get to meet, work with, laugh with & bounce ideas off from other fabulous photographers.

This past year, this area has really expanded & I’m very grateful for all of the new friends both in person & online (for those that live too far away).

I think that sometimes people in this industry get too caught up in competition & worry about sharing information.  I truly believe in the exact opposite.  When you open yourself up to share, & learn from each other the possibilities are endless!

Stay tuned for the release of the Fall Session dates.  We’ve done these for the past 4 years & will continue to schedule a day both @ Beckman Mill & probably another location, perhaps in Evansville.  One day will be in September & the other will be in October.  Spots WILL be limited to 5 each day.  Please contact the studio if you are interested in the information.  Hoping to roll out the details early next week


More information to come, but starting January 2011, Natale Photography will have more set weekday hours & will be limiting the weekend availability.
Very excited about this new change!
