I'm a huge fan of Vanessa Joy's and she's been an active contributor here at SCU. Having lived in New Jersey for a huge part of my life I'm also a big fan of anybody who can deal with winter weather!
I love Vanessa's comments about portability and the challenges of working with a bride this time of year and yet still being able to maintain her signature style. She's one of the best wedding photographers in the world and in this short video, if you don't know her already, you'll start to understand why.
"The Profoto b2's have solved all of my problems when it comes to portablility and ease of use. No stands, smaller light modifiers and portability you just can't beat."
When you watch the video you'll see what Vanessa's talking about as her assistant fights the wind on a winter day at a bridal shoot! Vanessa needs to be on your radar. You'll find more of her work on her website. And, if you see she's speaking at a workshop or program near you, run don't walk to get a seat.
