Deonte` Keller (ME)Back in June I wanted to create a new blog banner for my blog page. But I wanted to share the spotlight with some of my most consistent dTk photography Favs. It was really hard to pick from the bunch of people I've already worked with, but these models where hand picked by me personally, because they have proven to me, and themselves that they are dedicated to what I believe in, and everything that my dTk photography brand stands for. Each one of them has made the cover of all my photography pages, and have produced some of the best work dTk photography has to offer. This shoot meant alot to me because normally when I come up with ideas for a shoot for myself, I never really include anyone. Believe it or not, I can be very shy, and never really feel comfortable posing in front of people (other than my camera men) but I wanted to show my models that I practice everything I preach in my photoshoots with them. I lead by being an example of my own product, and everything I teach the people when I work with them, I live by, and produce myself. I love these guys very much, and I'm sooooo proud of them. For them to show up, and participate in this shoot with me meant everything. As I watched the cars pull up, I got very emotional. I was like "all these people are here to support me." Not just the models, but the photographers, and other crew members on the set. I can go on, and on about this, so I will just bring this to a close and say, thanks to everyone that supports dTk photography. These photos had no special strategy. This was more of a challenge for each of us. We were all provided with the tools, and information on what type of shoot this was going to be, and we were thrown together, to create a photo together (no matter how different our outfits looked). The goal was to "MAKE IT WORK".... so I present to you the very 1st "dTk photography allstar photoshoot." :) Enjoy........
