Brad says:

“This series is from my shoot with Megan, one of my 2015 Senior Models. The majority of her shoot took place at her house here in Hendersonville, TN. We chose this location to make it more personable, and I knew I couldn’t pass up this beautiful view of the lake.

Hours of shooting were between 5PM-Sunset. Natural light and OCF were used throughout the shoot.”

Brad’s Photography Tip:

I mainly specialize in shooting all natural light using a reflector. However, I’ve been pushing myself lately to incorporate more OCF during my sessions to capture a different look.

My tip is don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone – this is how we ultimately grow in what we do. It may take some time to perfect whatever you’re doing, but in the end it will be totally worth it. We never stop learning or growing.

Challenge yourself.


Brad used a Canon 5D MKII with a Canon 70-200 2.8 lens and a Canon 24-70 2.8 lens to capture these images.

Still need some help working with off-camera flash? Senior portraits are a great avenue to be innovative and creative, but if you’re not using all of the potential tools at your disposal you could be missing out on some serious potential.

Using off-camera flash is a great way to open up new possibilities for your seniors, though it doesn’t necessarily come intuitively. Thankfully, there are a lot of solid guides available out there to get you started.
