Spectrum Fantastic Art Live


A few of weeks ago, our studio, Sampsel Preston Photography, had the pleasure of being the show photographers for the amazing “Spectrum Fantastic Art Live” Show in Kansas City. If you are not familiar with Spectrum, it is a wonderfully intimate art show where you can meet and hang out with some of the most amazing artists in the world.  We were brought out to take as many portraits of the many artists that attended the show as possible. We brought a full studio worth of lights and equipment and set up a make-shift portrait studio on the floor of the convention, and invited any of the displaying artists to sit for a portrait.

What a terrific time we had! We saw many friends and made a whole bunch of new ones. And over the 2 1/2 days of the show we made almost 70 portraits of the most unbelievably talented science fiction and fantasy artists you’d ever hope to meet, Here are some of the portraits, please let me know what you think.
