Photographer Cares For Senior Citizens - Creates Memory Books

For 26 years, Melanie Arnold has been immortalizing lifetime milestones for people as a professional photographer.

For just as long, the 49-year-old Brookhaven resident has had a special place in her heart for the elderly. She particularly cherishes memories of her paternal grandmother who lived to be 100.

“I was never really taking care of people, I was just taking them out and getting them out of the house and having a good time with them. I’ve always loved the elderly,” said Arnold.

36 Photographers, 16 Models, Lots of fun!

Photographers and models wanting to beef up their portfolios recently met in Naples for a fun photo shoot.  From the article:

Each of the models was set up at a “station” on the church grounds, along the lake shore, under the gazebo, or in the woods along Unity’s meditation walk. It made for a somewhat surreal experience, to stroll through the thick vegetation and, every 50 feet or so, encounter another gorgeous girl dressed for the altar.

The “brides,” plus additional models wearing long prom dresses rather than wedding gowns, remained at their stations, while the photographers rotated around the area, to be able to capture shots of each. Photographers paid $50 for the session; the models weren’t paid monetarily, but received photos from each shooter to help build their portfolios.

10 year old photographer

Elias Rodriguez is your typical 10-year-old boy, except for the fact that he recently started his own photography business.

From the article:

“My mom bought this camera for herself and said I could use it any time I liked. That’s how it started off, to tell you the truth,” he said, rattling off the Nikon P100 specs like a pro. “I just thought I’d take photos for fun but I ended up with a business.”

A Fresh Angle On Wedding Photography From A Husband and Wife Team

From the article:

“She’s smokin’” were the words that ran through Jeff Youngren’s mind when he saw a photo of Erin, a freshman that Jeff’s college friend had been trying to set him up with. It took another three months for him to convince her that she wanted to date him. She worked in the library at Point Loma Nazarene University where they both attended; he would come in and checkout scholarly books to impress her. She agreed to a date and two and a half years later, they were married.

So how did a biology-chemistry major and a literature major become the dynamic San Diego-based wedding-photographer duo? It all started when Jeff’s dad handed his ten-year-old son a camera.
