I just heard from one of my brides from last summer that her wedding was published in Manhattan Bride Magazine. I love seeing my images in print... even if the images aren't the ones I would have chosen... or the way I'd crop them... or how I'd lay them out. Haha.

I also got an email from The Knot that their first coffee table book, The Look Book is out on stands with a bunch of my images in it! There are lots of images on the pages so I won't go through and point out mine but if you've been following my blog for a while they should look familiar.

Great, thanks for sharing this blog.Really thank you!

I think burnout is one of the biggest creative obstacles professional photographers have to deal with. We shoot thousands upon thousands of photographs for our clients and when the work is over picking up a camera is the last thing on our minds.

This is something I've definitely dealt with. I love photography and am so happy to be able to make a living doing something I love but after doing something 40,50, or 60 hours a week you need a break. So I gave myself permission to leave my camera at home a few times when heading out somewhere with Cyndie and Makenzie. Then that turned into never taking it out. As a photographer I felt justified. As a dad, I felt terrible, haha.

Then the iPhone came out and since I have my phone with me all the time, I have a camera with me too! The camera on the first iPhone was "good for a cell phone", the second was a bit better but mainly just more pixels. The 3Gs brought selective autofocus and exposure to the party and the iPhone4 is just freaking awesome. I use it ALL THE TIME. I love it. Not only is it super convenient, I actually like the photos and with the iPhone 4 the pictures are big enough to make a decent size print. Also because its a phone you can't really do a ton to the images so there's no real work that has to be done. They look cool and I didn't have to spend all day obsessing over skin tones. Haha.

I've been using an app called Instagram for a couple of months and I love it. Not only is it a really fun way to process your iPhone pictures but its also kind of like Twitter and Facebook. You can follow people's feeds and see when they post new images. You can "like" the images or leave comments. It's really fun.

If you have an iPhone and don't use it already, download it. If you already use it, follow me and I promise to return the favor. :) My username is @michaelnorwood.

Here are some of my instagrams from the past couple of months. I noticed there are a few distinct categories my photos fall into:

FAMILY... and my beautiful basset hounds :)

NEW YORK...we moved here last year and I'm still in awe of this place

FOOD AND DRINK...if you know me at all this isn't surprising

CRAZY/INTERESTING PEOPLE... yes that is NATALIE PORTMAN We sat next to each other last month on a flight, had a nice conversation, then I went into stalker mode and snapped a few pics of her before we got off the plane. She was super nice. :) I saw Santa on the beach in Waikiki last month and the crazy girls on the right were acting out scenes from harry potter while taking pictures of themselves... hence the tripod in the shot. To say it was entertaining would be an understatement. It was hysterical.

I used to take my camera (granted just a P&S) with me all the time but now my handy dandy iPhone has replaced it sometimes as well! At least for random captures when I'm out. Love your categories!

Nice post Michael! I'm pretty stoked on instagram too. :]

I know exactly what you mean. I was in a rut, and losing motivation. I didn't carry my camera around as much, as I have a rucksack for it now (not the small kit case it came with) which is harder to get the camera out of. At the end of the year, I opened iTunes to download a property app, and saw they were doing a "best of 2010" thing. I'd seen people like you, Jessica Claire and Becker, mentioning iPhone camera apps, but couldn't remember if it was Hipstamatic or Instagram. Hipstamatic was featured, so I downloaded it to try - and loved it. I've now got all the lenses. I'm trying to post a photo a day (on average) of London, specifically taken with the Hipstamatic app. I'm posting them on FB, so you can see them there if you're interested. I now always have the iPhone with me, and can choose to take my dSLR out for special visits. I think this is happening for lots of people - but it's getting us back into photography for fun, so that's good I think. Also - I love that first one of Cyndie and Makenzie - it just screams fun and happiness. And happy am I, to see you posting again. Missed your Blog posts!

If you follow me on Twitter it will come as no surprise that I'm LOVING the snow here in Manhattan. I really do love it. We've gotten a TON too. In fact this month has gotten more snow than any other month in recorded history! Since December 26th we've gotten about 57 inches! Crazy. I think one of the reasons I love it is that unlike a lot of people I don't have to commute to work. I don't have a car I have to scrape clean every morning. I don't have to shovel steps or a driveway. I just get to look out the window at the beautiful snow. It's totally magical.

This morning we checked in with Makenzie's school and found out that they canceled school today. Makenzie was so excited. I took her up on the roof to look at the city covered in snow.

Here's what we saw.

Happy snow day! :)

This kind of game gives a real experience of
Your favorite class in High School is back... minus the power tools and the creepy teacher missing 3 fingers.

The workshops can cover anything you want... shooting, posing/directing clients, processing/photoshop, blogging, pricing, pricing for destination weddings, dealing with clients, wedding day time management... its totally up to you. We can sit and talk for the whole time or we can get outside and put your new knowledge to use in a shoot... again, its up to you.

These sessions will, for the most part, take place in Orange County or New York City but if you're scared of flying or have a group or would just rather me come to you let me know and we can work out the travel.

I had the good fortune to attend a WOODSHOP in November of last year. I can only say " DO IT!!" Michael's creativity and attention to detail are definitely to be learned from, and paired with his calm, but fun manner with clients/subjects makes him one of the best photographers in the country. Book this today -- you will be glad for every penny you spend.

I've been away a while. I know. I know. It's been too long. Instead of groveling and trying to explain my absence I thought I'd make a list about what's gone on since I've last blogged... events, trips, gifts, purchases... whatever. If it's awesome and it's happened in the past couple of months its on the list.

(These are not in order of importance, just the order that they came to me.)

Cyndie and I went to New York... again. I don't think I need to explain to you again my love for New York City and more specifically Manhattan. Now I know I haven't seen the whole world, but, I've seen a lot of it and I can say with some degree of certainty that New York is my favorite place. I know it's not for everyone but for me and Cyndie there's nowhere better. The city, central park, the shopping, the restaurants... I love it all. This was actually the first time that Cyndie and I had gone to New York just for fun. Every other time I've had work there and while we always have a good time when I'm not working it was nice to not have anything but fun on the schedule for our trip.

Also it was our 10 year anniversary.


I can't believe we've been married that long! Here are a few pics I dug out from our proofs from our wedding photos. Don't judge, it was 1999! Sorry the scans are so bad.



And here we are now, this was in December in New York.


Which brings us to food. Our favorite thing to do, aside from going to New York, is go to really great restaurants. In the past two months we have eaten some incredible meals.  I could go on and on about them but there's probably only a few of you out there that would care so I'll just list a few of them.

DBGB. Super Chef, Daniel Boulud's less formal restaurant near the site of the famous old CBGB club in the East Village. Incredible burgers, amazing house made sausages, great beer list.

Jean Georges. Wow. One of New York's five Michelin 3 Star Restaurants. Incredible

Gramercy Tavern. I've heard about Gramercy Tavern for years and in December while we were in New York we totally lucked out and scored what is one of Manhattan's toughest reservations. It did not disappoint.

Animal. A sweet restaurant in West Hollywood that is a vegan's worst nightmare. Luckily I'm no vegan.  Pork Belly sliders, chicken liver toast, veal breast, rabbit legs... even the desert had bacon in it! Mmmmmmeat!

A16. San Francisco's famous restaurant that specializes in not just Italian food, but food from the Campania region of Italy. You have to respect a restaurant that is that focused on what they do. Its easy to try to be all things to all people and end up doing nothing well. A16 does and few things and is the best at them.

And finally the culinary version of Mecca... the place all foodies aspire to eat... perhaps the most famous restaurant in the world...

THE FRENCH LAUNDRY! This was Cyndie's Christmas gift to me. I had a wedding last weekend up in the Bay Area and Cyndie thought ahead two months ago and scored us a table. It was without a doubt the best dining experience of my life. Trying to come up with enough superlatives to describe this meal is futile. I'll probably devote an entire blog post to the meal so we'll save the details for later.

Christmas! As I said, we've been married for 10 years now and this was Makenzie's 6th Christmas and we've always been with our extended family. And while that's always been great we chose, this year, to spend it alone and create our own traditions. So this year it was just the three of us and it was awesome. We definitely missed our families but it was so much fun making things up as we went, creating traditions that will hopefully last for a long time.

I got a new camera. Not really that exciting but its always fun to get new toys.

I got a Sous Vide Supreme! This is way more exciting than a camera... at least to me. We've been getting into cooking amazing food at home and this machine has allowed us to take dinner to a whole 'nother level. We had some friends over last week for a dinner party and I made shortribs that had been cooked for 72 hours! Oh my gosh, they were amazing.

Weddings in San Diego, Hollywood and Dallas and San Francisco. Those blogs are coming up soon, I promise.

Finally, I got a book that is so incredibly inspiring. Its not a photography book, or a business book, it's about a chef named Ferran Adria who is, by many accounts, the best chef in the world. What's inspiring about this book is that it takes you through a typical day with him. He's someone that has dedicated his life to being creative. Not just making food, but creating something that's never been made before. His restaurant is only open 160 days a year because he needs the rest of the time to create. Every day the restaurant is open the first 9 hours of the day is dedicated to creating new dishes. His diners are served between 28 and 36 courses and every course a diner is served is put into a database so that if they come back to the restaurant in the future they will not be served the same dish. The have hundreds of notebooks filled with thousands of dishes they've created, not one of them something the diner will have ever seen or been served before. The 205 days a year the the restaurant is closed is spent developing new processes to make food. Inventing machines and tools if necessary to facilitate the making of whatever dish the have in their heads. That kind of commitment to creativity is just astounding to me and is really inspiring as well. I want to put that much effort into being creative for my clients.

So now you're caught up! I promise it won't be 2 months before I blog again! :)

Last week I had a birthday. It was amazing. Best birthday I can remember. There are only a few things that make me really happy... two of them are amazing food and being surrounded by friends. This year I got both.

Monday night Cyndie and I left Makenzie with some friends and drove up to LA. We got a room at The Roosevelt Hotel, one of the coolest hotels ever, and had dinner at Spago, Wolfgang Puck's signature restaurant in Beverly Hills.

I've wondered for a long time if Spago was all hype or if it really was all it was cracked up to be. Let me tell you it did not disappoint. Instead of ordering off the menu we decided to do the 10 course tasting menu. After three and a half hours we rolled out of the restaurant... stuffed from one of the most amazing meals we've ever had. The meal cost more than the rent on our first apartment but I have to say it was totally worth it. Also, we sat right next to Sidney Poitier and his family. Awesome.

The next day we hung out at the hotel for a while then headed back to the OC where we were having a bonfire with friends out on the Balboa Penninsula. There were probably 10 photographers there so I was thinking that several would have their cameras but only one person did. Jory brought an old Canon AE-1 and one roll of film.  He just blogged the images from the day so I stole a few for my blog too.  Thanks for the images Jory!
Yours truly. Jory and Val, Jasmine and JD Star ;)

Steven Taylor, Victor Sizemore

There's a blurry Jessica Claire, Jasmine and Cyndie back there.

I guess most of us like the "jumping" or better "flying" capture. I just love how she has her arms back, like wings! Too cute.
I live in Ladera Ranch, a small, idyllic oasis of a community nestled among the sprawling cities of Southern California. We happen to have a lot of photographers that live here... really good ones too. From Jessica Claire, to Mark and Candice Brooke, to the TOTALLY RAD Doug and Chenin Boutwell to Victor Sizemore and Morgan Taylor (who's new site is almost live and is pretty much the greatest thing I've ever seen... I'll post the link when its done), we've got a great little group going. We get together for lunch or dinner a few times a week, hang out at each other's houses, lend each other gear when one of our lenses, bodies or flashes inevitably goes bad (thanks Canon)... we're friends.

Recently, following the lead of Victor, we started playing cards at night... rook, spades, 10 on down... any number of games. You probably know that most of us are in some way or another mildly (or completely) addicted to poker. You probably also noticed that these games I just mentioned are not played for money.

Well last night after Mark's birthday party we went back to their place to play. After a while playing cards with nothing on the line does get a little dull so Jessica and I decided to mix it up. I gave her 5 to 1 odds that I could win a certain number of hands in our game. She, being the incorrigible gambler that she is, couldn't resist and so we bet 10 bucks on that hand.

I of course won and made Jessica sign the bill she paid with. Just in case you were wondering... I AM a better player than Jessica Claire.jcmoney.jpg

Sidenote: After I scanned the bill I pulled it into Photoshop to crop and resize it and it told me that "Printing bank notes from this program is prohibited" Haha. What the heck? How did it know? Am i being watched?! If I am, let the record show that it was Jessica who defaced Federal property, not me.

I still think your little girl is one of the prettiest little ladies I have ever seen. I say you start preparing yourself with rifle lessons so as to intimidate the drove of boys who will be banging on your door! :)

I LOVE Law & Order! It's cool that they actually shoot where the show is based. I watched a little of "CSI: New York" the other day. It was about a cop being shot in Central Park. But you could tell they probably just used some park in Pasadena. All the shots were pointing downward, so as not to catch any palm trees in the background. Lame and lazy. I would've loved to see the L&O folks at work.

Michael... Makenzie's mother-in-law is going to be so disappointed at the rehearsal dinner when everyone is laughing at her son's awkward snapshots and are ooo-ing and aww-ing over your perfect pictures of your perfectly beautiful little girl.
