The Stamps Woodwind Quintet performed Friday evening at the Frost School of Music. Before their recital, Jenifer and I took some new group shots for the University’s website. Although we had a very short few minutes to work with them, we had a great time with this energetic group of performers. Their performance was great to attend as well as photograph and was well attended by family, friends, students and community members.

More information about the Stamps Family Charitable Foundation, the Frost School of Music Ensambles as well as performance schedules for the Stamps Quartets and Quintets can be found at the Frost School of Music website. We highly recommend coming out to support these up and coming performers and one of the best university music programs in the world!

Yesterday Jenifer and I did some portraits of the Stamps Brass Quintet at the Frost School of Music. The group was fantastic fun to work with. We were limited to about 10 minutes to work with them, but since they showed up early and were ready to go, we ended up with almost 20 minutes before the next group arrived (pictures from Woodwind Quintet will be featured in another blog posting later this weekend). As such, we were afforded the opportunity to do something more than the requested “straight group shot” that will be used for the Frost School of Music website.

Happy Halloween!

We, at Versatile Light Studio, wish you a very happy Halloween!
Whether you’re dressing up and going out, taking the kids trick or treating, or staying in and watching horror movies, be sure to have a scary good time!

Halloween is a bit of a special holiday for us. Not only have we always enjoyed Halloween, especially myself (Jen); but it is when Shawn and I met up in Boston, MA. in 2008, and spent Halloween in Salem; and it is when cupid – dressed up in a witch costume – shot us both with an arrow and we decided we should be dating! We seriously considered finding a witch to marry us that night.  And actually we did meet 2 Wiccans that night in Salem! They just didn’t have the power to marry 😉  So, Halloween is one of our favorite holidays for obvious reasons, and to make the month of October even better, we got married in that month – on 10.10.10

And finally we’ll leave you with something randomly neat: Spooky Wikipedia entries to read in the dark! [via The Hairpin]

German American Social Club of Miami Oktoberfest!

During the last two weekends in October, the German American Social Club of Miami hosts “the largest German cultural event in South East Florida and the oldest Oktoberfest in Florida.”

Because the GASC is a member of the Greater Miami Festivals and Events Association (for which Jenifer has been the photographer for many years) we have been attending and photographing the event for the past several years. The event is by far one of the most fun that we attend. The people are always very kind, generous and accommodating of our needs as photographers.  In addition, they have several bands that travel to South Florida from Germany every year to play at the Oktoberfest – which are fantastic. There are a lot more images to come which we will post at our online archive: Photos.versatilelight.com
