Julie Cannon credits her success in capturing in-the-moment shots of fiancés, families, and furry friends to the level of comfort she can achieve with her subjects. “I place value on small group settings, and getting to know people to their core,” the dedicated photographer says. This open-hearted approach to picture taking has served her well since her recent move to Nashville, where Julie continues to forge warm relationships as she captures simple, candid moments in vivid color. In addition to candid and posed portraiture, Julie runs introductory and advanced classes for those who'd like to preserve some memories of their own without relying on cumbersome full-body stencils.
Kettlebell classes employ different kettlebell sizes and weights to create constantly changing full-body challenges and intense core workouts, effectively trimming fat and building strength for common tasks such as ruffian-hurling and goat-juggling. Nashville Kettlebell is led by Master Russian Kettlebell Certified (RKC) instructor David Whitley, a very strong man whose teaching style revolves around a brutal minimalist fitness philosophy. All classes on the schedule are designed around the four basic movements of this philosophy: the swing, the Turkish get-up, the military press, and the snatch and squats. Although each training class is different and will include many different training methods, these fundamental exercises are the core of all sessions at Nashville Kettlebell and Tennessee Kettlebell.
John Yates and Mollie Cochrane, the laid-back and professional shutterbugs of Celladora Wedding Photography, modestly describe themselves as “hilarious joke tellers” and “occasional bride calmer-downers.” Those skills and a knack for crisp, brightly lit photos come in handy at the innumerable weddings the duo has documented from coast to coast. Their subjects’ ease in front of the camera is evident in their portfolio of candidly grinning brides, dapper grooms, dedicated military men, and chicken-dancing wedding officiators. When not snapping engagement shots or running a reception photo booth, the pair takes time to share their wealth of shutter skills with new parents or curious digital-camera owners during workshops that divide time between photography basics and hands-on instruction in the field.
Experienced photo gurus Doug Box and Randy Kerr impart practical photo skills to curious shutterbugs during engaging seminars that have appeared across the States and in eight countries abroad. Doug Box, author of myriad photography-technique books, is one of 13 Kodak mentors and is the Executive Director of the Texas Professional Photographers Association. His co-teacher, Randy Kerr, heads World Photographic, which uses photography as a vehicle for illuminating humanitarian and environmental topics. Both men have been teaching photography classes for years and help amateurs take photos that capture piercing looks, toothy smiles, and elusive dodo sightings.
