The SPPA Holiday Party…. some interesting peeps! December 9, 2010

As a member of the SPPA (Seattle Professional Photographer’s Association) I was a participant at this year’s holiday party. It was a particularly extraordinary event, primarily based on the venue and models.  A photographer’s ‘shoot-out’ dream come true.

We rented out one of the coolest places in Seattle, Urban Light Studios, in Wallingford. Along with a team of @ 8 models, from Lumina Models in Everett….lots of photographers with their cameras…. made for an amazing night of creativity and fun!

Here are a few shots from the evening. They have not been Photo-shopped at all. . . .  Just meant to show how much fun we had.  Enjoy!

"Santa Baby" I'd agree... this is a fairly unusual shot of Santa's little helper! - Acclaimed Photography
