Spectrum Fantastic Art Live 2015-New Portraits

So, it's been about 2 weeks since we returned from the amazing "Spectrum Fantastic Art Live" show in Kansas City. We are  just now catching our breath. What a terrific show. Our studio "Sampsel Preston Photography" was asked again this year, for the second time, to come out and set up a pop-up photo studio on the show floor to take portraits of some of the incredibly talented Artists that were showing their work as well as some of the specials guests. Over the course of the 3 day show we had the chance to see quite a few old friends and make many new one's, and take over 100 portraits of the extremely talented creators that were there. We want to give a big thanks to Cathy and Arnie Fenner for creating such a wonderful forum for artists to show their work, and also to Show Director and publisher John Fleskes for allowing us to be there, and last but not least, a huge thank you to our sponsor Murray Elliott of Mega-Pixels Digital for sending out the newest Phase-one Camera, lenses, and the new IQ250 digital back to make the portraits with, the quality is really remarkable. Here are some of the portraits, please let us know what you think:

It is not easy being an artist.
