On my most recent Walt Disney World trip, I spent a day at Hollywood Studios with Cory photographing the park. We didn’t realize it at the time, but it happened to be the same day that the Dapper Day event was being held. If you are not familiar with Dapper Day, it is a fan organized event that is held twice a year at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland. The people attending the event show up dressed in their most stylish outfits and enjoy the park together. As someone who is interested in photographing the parks and enjoy human element type photography, it makes for some great photo opportunities. It seemed to be a great fit for Hollywood Studios since their outfits went perfect with the 1930′s theme of Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard.
So, you’ve been going to Walt Disney World or Disneyland for quite some time now, and you’ve taken all of the postcard type shots over and over again.

We are introducing a new feature to the site leading up to Photo Magic 2013 that we think everyone will enjoy. The idea is to take one photo subject at Disney and have each of us explain our approach to shooting it. We are starting with photos that will most likely be done during Photo Magic, but we plan on continuing this after the event and covering more shots from around the resort.
To get things started, we are starting with one of the more popular questions we get on the blog…Wishes! People always want to know how we photograph the fireworks, recommendations for locations and the correct settings to use. Today we will each take a few minutes to explain our own approach to photographing the nightly fireworks at the Magic Kingdom.
We are just 18 days away from Photo Magic 2013 at Walt Disney World, so we figured it was about time that we put some type of schedule together for everyone! The idea behind the event was to create a schedule that would allow for people to come and go as they wish as opposed to a strict schedule that would require people to spend all day with us. With that in mind, the schedule below has a lot of extra time built into it to allow for us to take our time as a group roaming the parks.
Quite interesting that a photo from the Polynesian Resort would have anything to do with an ice cream sundae. Read on to find out.. I am a big fan of all different forms of art. One of my favorites is television. And as many of you may know, a favorite show of mine concluded last […]
Today’s photo comes from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. When Adam and I were hanging out at the Studios on his last day, we took a lot of time capturing some of the shows, like the Citizens of Hollywood and the Jedi Training Academy. Adam also made the huge mistake of allowing me to use his Olympus […]
