Photographing London

Photographing London

Three weeks ago, my family and I set out on a bit of a trip – a bit of work, a bit of play, a lot of exploring and a whole lot of photography; London was our first stop.  There’s also Ethiopia, Italy, Switzerland and more – but we started out with the U.K.

We wandered London for a few days right after we got there.  We were staying in Southwark but took the tube everywhere.  To Camden Town, Kensington, Covent Garden, The London Eye, Buckingham Palace, so very many of London’s beautiful, sprawling gardens and on and on and on.

After a few days, I got to kick off my 3-day Portrait Photographer’s Workshop.  It went so beautifully well, I’ll have to dedicate another post to that – but, for the meantime, here are just a few of the very, very many photographs I took while in London, all shot with the Nikon D800 and either the 24-70 f2.8 or 14-24 f2.8 lenses.

First off, funky, vibrant Camden Town:

We were blessed with some rather beautiful weather most of the time we were there, which was about a week and a half altogether.

So much riding of the tube!  Check out the creepy guy in the window behind Caleb, upper right shot – and Steve and the kids, while waiting at Kensington Station.

Love all the incredible, free museums.  Even the ones with attacking dinosaurs.

Nikon Takeover

Since becoming a Nikon USA Ambassador, I’ve had the good fortune to do some very cool new things – but getting to do a Nikon Takeover is definitely one of the coolest of the cooler new things yet.

What does a Nikon takeover involve?  Well, if you have ANY questions about cameras, lenses, gear, portraits, lighting, shooting, or anything photography-related, I’ll be taking over the Nikon twitter account to answer A LOT, LOT.

Feel free to tweet any questions using the hashtag #NikonChat between now and tomorrow, and I’ll be abandoning my twitter account to post from the NikonUSA twitter account Tuesday, June 24th, from 2pm – 3pm EST.

Anything you tweet in advance of our start time, with hashtag #NikonChat, will be collected by Nikon, and sorted, so that we can knock out as many answers as possible (as smoothly as possible).  My goal during the Nikon takeover is to get through ALL of them, so definitely join in!

Open Call for Models London

**6/24/14: Note, we are all set with some rather wonderful models, and the workshop is completely sold out – thank you!

(Our last workshop of the year is in Durham this September, and there are only a few spots left).


Our 3-day portrait photographers workshop is coming up very, very soon, and we will need about six more models to round out all the shooting clinics we will have over the course of our workshop!

We have been quite lucky to have a wonderful variety of lovely, fun models in previous workshops.  Here’ a peek from just some of our models during our recent 3-day workshop in Durham, North Carolina: – we photographed indoors, on location, utilizing natural light, additive light, doing tiny-group shoots with separate models, shooting fast-action, photographing with rough backgrounds and considering additional elements when photographing families.  All shot with either the Nikon D4 or D800 and a variety of lenses.

And there are quite a lot of other lovely photographs from workshop participants!

Check out:

Karen Kelly’s blog – she wrote a beautiful post about courage and photography (and the workshop) that I just love - and shares her own high-energy images.  I sincerely believe that we are our own biggest barriers, so I just love her realizations and motivation on where she goes from here. It’s definitely worth a read.

There’s also Cindy Short’s impactful blog post.  After spending half a year in treatment for cancer, she is quite clear on what means the most to her.  You can see her review of the workshop and her beautiful images of the models here.

You can also see more very fun model images from Iman Woods, who was as much in need of staying open creatively – and managing burnout – as she was of the particulars offered in the workshop.  Check out her soulful post and playful behind-the-scenes shots here.

And Katy Johnson, who knew she wanted to get her business to the next level and realized she had been overwhelmed by all the pieces involved in making a business out of the passion of photography, shares how she saw to put it all together – and shows off so much of the personality of the kids we photographed in this post here.

So!  If you’re interested in responding to our open call for models for this London workshop, please contact Sarah, our Studio Manager, here.

And if you’re interested in joining the workshop as a participant, we still have a couple spots left!  You can register here.

Lastly, a bit of a warning – as much fun as the models have during our shoots, I must confess they also can get a bit tuckered out.
So, y’know, just don’t say we didn’t mention that part ; )

When Chris Rosati was first diagnosed with ALS (historically known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease), it came as a pretty incredible shock to he and his wife. What had started out as muscle twitches, and eventually some muscle weakness, now had a diagnosis – ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a disease that attacks motor neurons (the cells that control our muscles), a disease that changes what you knew as your life, a disease that is fatal.

A diagnosis of ALS can change everything.

And for Chris Rosati, it did.  In fact, he has quite a lot to share about just how many blessings this diagnosis has brought into his life.


Chris Rosati, ALS, Portraits by Tamara Lackey

Happily married to his rather lovely wife of ten years, Anna, the two of them have two high-energy, beautiful daughters, Logan, age 8, and Delaney, age 3. Anna had actually been pregnant with Delaney when Chris was first diagnosed.

But when you speak to Chris about ALS, he refers to all the blessings of the disease, how he used to worry all the time and how he simply doesn’t anymore. He cares, deeply, for those he loves; but he doesn’t worry anymore.  His intention is to truly live his life – and to live it well.

I had the good fortune of spending a few hours with Chris, Anna, and their daughters on a photo shoot recently, and I felt the power of that intention, to live fully, to worry less, to be grateful. It’s really quite striking, a truly palpable energy.

Referring to hearing his daughter’s footsteps patter down the hallway, Chris Rosati is so very clear on what matters – he used to hear common sounds like that, and it’d be background; now her footsteps are the focus, the full focus. There is quite a difference in that, in what we put first. He shares some of his perspective in this CBS news story.

To that end, he founded the Inspire Media Network, encouraging other people to live their lives fully, to not wait to be amazing – to love deeply, to pursue their dreams and to help others in the process.  Chris believes that, by sharing our adversities, we help each other, that seeing how someone else has “overcome the same seemingly impossible circumstances that we may face can give hope to the hopeless”.  And he doesn’t just mean an illness – he refers to anything that can “knock people to their knees”, like the loss of a job, or a divorce, or the death of a loved one.

One of Chris Rosati’s goals is to help bring more awareness to ALS.  And, coincidentally, May is ALS Awareness Month.  To help support that effort, he is also creating a film, The Blessings of My Disease, which you can help fund – and he states:

“ALS is devastating. But there are some blessings. I get to be amazed by the good in people every day. I get to experience an overwhelming and never ending wave of love. I hardly ever worry, and never about something trivial. I now see beauty in so many simple things. I no longer fear failure… or much of anything else. I know something you don’t know – something wonderful. And I know how blessed I am.”

Chris Rosati, ALS, Portraits by Tamara Lackey

I had first heard of Chris Rosati when my 12 year-old daughter wanted to do a project with her friends, BIGG (Big Ideas for the Greater Good), a contest that Chris was hosting to encourage students to get creative about doing good things for others. I heard of him again when our mutual friend, Laura Zimmerman Whayne, shared more details of his story, leading me to read up on his super cool Krispy Kreme Heist, his plan to hijack a Krispy Kreme doughnut delivery truck and deliver the goods – see more about how Krispy Kreme gave him one instead (his first delivery stop was a Duke cancer treatment center). Laura had also mentioned that he would be speaking at our daughters’ school as part of an effort he was making to go school to school, to spread his message of love, hope, and fearlessness.

And his name came up a third time when my 12-year old came home from school after just listening to him speak to the entire middle school in assembly.  She walked in the door, eyes shining, and said “Mom, I heard Chris Rosati speak, you remember him?, he’s not afraid at all. I mean, he knows he is going to die, have you heard of ALS?, and he says none of us have to be afraid, how much worry doesn’t matter, he doesn’t anymore, it was all so amazing, listening to him …” and she proceeded to tell me nearly everything he said. I truly hadn’t ever seen her that impacted by someone she’d heard speak before.

I was so moved that I coordinated with Laura to reach out to Anna and Chris, and we arranged to do this family portrait session. It was truly a privilege for me to do – and it was really just a fun outing, in general.

As we meandered around, we had a chance to talk.  We watched Delaney assert her desire for something, as 3 year-olds naturally do so well, and Chris commented, with a smile, “That’s good.  She’s strong-willed, that’s going to really help her in life.”

Watching Chris and Anna together is quite something, too.  There’s so much undeniable love there, such sweetness when they look at each other. There is loss on the way, there currently seems no way around that, but there is right now right now – there is living fully today – and you see exactly what it means to live up to those words.

When Chris says to not wait to be amazing, this is what he means, the way they are right here.

Love deeply,
pursue your dreams,
help others in the process.

Got it.





Giveaways 2014!

Photography is awesome.
Also, getting great photography gear can be expensive. Luckily, the good peeps at Adorama are currently holding TWO new contests, where you can win up to $1100 in giveaway money to spend at their online superstore. What can you buy? Nearly everything, it seems – but, if you want any suggestions to help narrow it down, here are some of my favorites.

The first giveaway opportunity is their You Be The Host Contest, where you get an opportunity to host a show on AdoramaTV. I’ve been hosting reDefine Show on Adorama TV for three years now – if you’ve ever been interested in hosting a show, trust me, it’s a lot of fun to do.

Also, if you’re in New York or want to head there, I’ll be joining about 20,000 people on Sunday, June 8th for their family-friendly fourth annual Street Fair, in support of the Boomer Esiason Foundation to fight Cystic Fibrosis.  I was there last year, too, presenting under their main tent – was quite a cool mix of fun silliness (think a petting zoo on a closed-down 18th Street in Manhattan next to juggling giant men on stilts), wonderful opportunities to meet with some major product manufacturers, a chance to mingle with a few celebrities – and the option to see some great programs on photography:

But not leastly!

Here is the SECOND contest, which you can enter quite easily, right here on my blog. We’ll choose the WINNER of the $100 Gift Card to spend at Adorama this Monday, May 12th.

Nikon Ambassadors

This week Nikon announced that the Nikon Ambassadors program expanded to include four new photographers, for a total of twenty – and I was thrilled to read my name included as one of them.


Nikon Ambassadors, Tamara Lackey


One of the more popular posts I’ve written on this blog was about why I switched to Nikon.  Since the first time I started working with the Nikon system, I truly haven’t looked back in any way.  I am loving the gear (if curious, here’s what’s in my bag), the quality of the imagery I’m shooting and the support of the passionate group of individuals who work at Nikon.

My mom asked me what it meant, exactly, to be included as one of the Nikon Ambassadors (here’s the full list of all twenty, a rather way-impressive group).  Well, first of all, it doesn’t mean that I can get out of any parking tickets, like I’d initially hoped.  No, really, I checked.  Not even that one where I walked up and saw her starting to write it and said, But, wait, I’m right here while trying to make eye contact with her, even thought she continued to KEEP writing it and totally ignored me and then went and put it on my windshield, walking past me like I was a freakin’ hologram.
And it wasn’t a cheap ticket either!

Diplomatic immunity doesn’t apply to us in any way.

It also doesn’t mean we are now working for Nikon or need to wear a yellow uniform with diagonal-ish white stripes, to answer a question from my confused 10 year-old year son.

And, no, I’m not on any sort of commission, as a forum commentor recently asked.
Like, seriously, none ; )

What inclusion in the Nikon Ambassadors program means, from my perspective, is simply a more formal way of deepening a relationship between two parties who happen to really love the magic of photography and also care a great deal about investing in the future of the craft.

I’ve already been lucky enough to partner with Nikon on several initiatives prior to this Nikon Ambassadors announcement, like being a part of their very cool Nikon Behind The Scenes videos.  One of my videos about photographing fast-moving children and pets has already been released and is live, and four more of mine will be released over the next few months.  You can also see some excellent ones from Joe McNally and Corey Rich, the other two Nikon Ambassadors featured, all housed on the Nikon YouTube channel.

I’ve also been able to team up with them to be a Featured Instructor on their popular, up and coming Nikon Mom’s Night Out program, and we’ve heard some amazing things back from participants.  We’ll be doing a third one in New York soon, to be announced shortly.

And I’ve been fortunate enough to shoot some of their lifestyle-oriented commercial stock photographs, which is very fun “work”, as well as test out – and then report back on – a couple of their newer cameras.  One of my favorites is their interchangeable lens Nikon AW1 camera, which is waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof and kid-proof!  I carry this little, so-portable camera around with me most everywhere I go.  It has a pretty powerful engine, too – to show you what I mean, I shot this image from the water, while my family and I were in Puerto Rico:

In addition, I’ve been able to speak on their behalf at a variety of shows, including several WPPI programs, in Las Vegas and a few at Photo Plus Expo, in New York. They also championed the idea of Work. Live. Succeed: A Panel Discussion for Pro Photographers from Nikon, that took place in Vegas and featured Dixie Dixon, Bambi Cantrell and myself and was moderated by Melissa Nui, of PhotoFocus.   A big thanks to Mike Corrado, who is Manager of Nikon Professional Services – Pro Relations and Product Marketing, as well as a seriously talented artist himself.  He not only considered that idea but went and ran with it, really making it happen in such a big way.  (I’m quite grateful to Mike for working with me so closely throughout this entire experience – and being a lot of fun along the way).  As of just this week, you can now watch that entire Work. Live. Succeed program here, as it’s now living on Nikon’s website.

Given all the work we’ve done together to date, I’m beyond honored to have a page on the Nikon website and to stand among these inspiring artists as part of the Nikon Ambassadors USA program:

Nikon Ambassadors, Tamara Lackey

And thank you, thank you, thank you for any well wishes any of you may have offered since this was announced!!

It truly means a great deal to me.



2014 Boston Marathon

My studio manager, Sarah, and I were able to watch the live stream of the Boston Marathon yesterday at lunch, on an iPhone, while I was between portrait shoots – and we were absolutely glued to the tiny screen.  It was incredible to watch such incredible athletes run so fast, so powerfully.  Not just the leaders of the race, but the nearly 36,000 runners who took on the difficult 26.2 miles on what turned out to be a beautiful morning.

We were also lucky enough to see some familiar faces – like Meb Keflezighi, who was the first American male to win the Boston Marathon in 31 years, running with the names of the victims from last year’s bombing on his bib.  What an absolutely inspiring finish.

He was also inspiring when I got to meet him when he started off the Tarheel 10Miler here in Chapel Hill, North Carolina (kicking off again this Saturday, April 26th, with a sold-out field of over 6,000 runners), and I photographed him for Endurance Magazine.  Born in Eritea, I introduced him to my Ethiopian-born son, and he couldn’t have been friendlier with him or us.

We also got to see Shalane Flanagan, who led the women at the Boston Marathon for an insanely-long 20 miles and ended up finishing sixth, still beating her own personal record.  I’d also photographed her for Endurance Magazine.

Touring her home was pretty eye-opening, too.  Check out this anti-gravity treadmill and the sheer amount of footwear she goes through:

Cannot wait to see what these two inspiring athletes continue to do after the Boston Marathon – and I’m making my next long run a bit longer after the thrill of yesterday’s event.

Nikon Behind The Scenes

Nikon Behind The Scenes, Tamara Lackey, Joe McNally, Corey Rich

I feel very fortunate to have been included in the new Nikon Behind The Scenes web series with colleagues, and friends, Joe McNally, who is also my AdoramaTV co-host, (in addition to being a legendary commercial photographer), and the uber-talented Adventure Photographer Corey Rich.

The Nikon Behind the Scenes video series was built “to empower and entertain intermediate level photographers by equipping them with the skills they need to take their photography to the next level” – and, dang, they have already done a fantastic job of doing that so far.  This series covers a multitude of topics in short bursts, most shows are about 3 minutes long, and they cover a variety of topics: lighting, lensing, posing models, shooting landscapes, working with different subjects and gearing up for a shoot.

We shot my five shows here in North Carolina, and I was grateful to Nikon and Corey Rich Productions for coming out for a few days, while we lined up a couple fabulous adults, several adorable children, and one patient puppy for a series of shoots in various locations around the American Tobacco campus and here, in our very own studio in Durham, North Carolina.

Check out my first Nikon Video Behind The Scenes show release, photographing children with pets in a rather rough portrait environment, very much on the fly:


Here are some more fun stills from the show, including the very moment one of my subjects almost gave me a concussion – although, to be fair, I told him to go ahead and do the jump ; )
