Protege Update: Jaunts With The D

As the year comes to a close I thought I'd post a Protege Update. It's been a busy year for The Protege. He has been such a quick study that now on many smaller photo shoots he will operate the camera while I act as art director... d-camera1

He has also developed a refined and mature sense of style considering his rather young age and has been instrumental in the styling of many shoots...

Gear procurement? Check...


Location Scouting? Done...


I've had a lot of fun collaborating with The Protege this year and am very excited for the future. I've created a place to chronicle our outings and escapades (or "jaunts" as we call them) here: Jaunts With The D. Be sure to check it out.

Protege Update

It's been a little over a year now since The Protege came on board here at Aaron Leitz Photography and things are progressing nicely. devin2

He's been dressing more appropriately and not dropping things as much. And I'm a lot more at ease these days when traveling on assignment now that I have The Protege to help with final gear check and packing....


I'm in San Francisco this week photographing a few residential projects. Had an afternoon free and walked over and took a few photographs of Saint Mary's Cathedral in the Japantown neighborhood. It's an interesting monolith of a building.
