I was groomed in a corporate culture that praised continuous improvement, so when I received my photowalk and breakout session feedback from @thephotocookout, I was equally excited and nervous. Here’s what I learned though: 1. Whether 1 person shows up or 100, be prepared to pour your all into your lesson. 2. Being a visual storyteller means you listen more than you’re photographing. My branding photowalk sponsored by @tamronusa confirmed that. When we heard the artist’s story, mission, and desires for his image that allowed us to effectively scout the location, select which lens would be best, and pose him accordingly. Thanks again, @tamronusa! 3. I’m ready to give y’all more in 2020. It’s a blessing to be a blessing and I’m going to continue to pour into my passion without fear of how it will get done. Happy Friday, y’all. 📸: @tjwhitephotog
Do you ever think you’re ready to give something up but then life is like WHOAAAAA SALLY? That’s me. My fire for boudoir and intimate portraiture has been allllll the way restored from @thephotocookout. I thought I was going to just hangout and fade into the background but I couldn’t resist playing. Dan from @stellaprolights mentioned that we can just play—and while he was talking about lights then—it meant that I could free my creative self. So we’re back, better than ever, and ready to make some dope stuff. My boudoir group is Boudie Baddies on Facebook and if you’re ready for a little fun—join us.
WHEW those eyes!!! It’s all about that state, deep into your soul! This @hellochinelle that I had the pleasure of meeting and working with in a workshop taught by the masterful @toniblackmagic at @thephotocookout in NOLA almost 2 weeks ago. There were a lot of photographers around, but Chenille stayed cool as a cucumber! What struck me most about Chinelle was the confidence she exudes - she would stare into our souls, then laugh the next moment, then would seem demure, but she was never uncertain and never questioned how she looked. 👑 In your Fempowered Boudoir session, you will see your images within an hour of finishing shooting. 🤩 Yes, you read that right. We look at your photos together the same day we make them! There’s no time for anxiety or negativity, just confidence and looking (and feeling) like a Queen! 👸🏾 Curious how it works or want your own Fempowered experience? There are limited spots left in 2019! DM me today! [image description in Instagram Alt Text feature]

Happy 20th birthday to @acehotel. Since opening their first property in Seattle in October 1999, the company has expanded to 10 international cities (and counting). In the process, the Ace Hotel brand has changed the hospitality industry and created a lifestyle around the intersection of travel, design, music, food, and community. Palmisano is happy to have been a part of two Ace Hotel projects, @aceneworleans and @maisondelaluz, both landmark projects for the brand and New Orleans. For more on Ace’s history, head to the link in our bio for a @lamag interview with Ace’s chief brand officer, Kelly Sawdon. #palmisanoprojects#acehotel

Nola owes me nothing. @hellochinelle is a birth photographer who taught an amazing birth photography class at The Photo Cookout this past week. @thephotocookout is the best thing for photographers who want a sense of community with their education. Bar none.
