William Morton, owner of Morton Visuals event photography in San Diego, CA, has announced a new holiday charity drive today. For every holiday event photographed between Thanksgiving and Christmas, 10% of all sales will be donated to each client’s choice of two favored charities: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or the Wounded Warriors Foundation.
Morton’s personal philosophy of “it’s not what you get in life, it’s what you give that’s important” encourages him to look for opportunities to better the lives of those in need. St. Jude’s and the Wounded Warrior Project each exemplify this vision, dedicated to giving children and veterans a chance for a better tomorrow.

The SoCal Photography Group once again swarmed Studio J today. Approximately 50 models and photographers along with a full makeup and hair styling crew came in to take advantage of the urban/industrial setting of the East Village studio for their Ultimate Shootout 8 – and what turned out to be Studio J’s final big photo shoot.
This summary from the SCPG blog:
The Big Shot of the Day comes from first-time SCPGer, Mark Rosales! His shot of Jose Farias and a silhouetted mystery model (shown at left) shows some excellent light capture and editing to give it the final cinematic punch. Second place goes to Aiza Giron, whose shot of Josh Noblejas in mid-air and surrounded by wisps of light shows that a little graphic design doesn’t hurt Third place is Ryan Rivera’s shot of Alyssa Lerner with some amazing hair & makeup done by Kiefla Antonio and Veronica Deleon.
Studio J would like to thank the SoCal Photography Group for their support. We truly enjoyed hosting you, and especially seeing the great images produced at Studio J. FYI, the SoCal Photography Group can also be found on Facebook.

A full house occupied Studio J tonight as Mona Lisa Boutique brought together 5 designers for a well-organized show. William Morton helped transform the studio into a stage and runway, with almost two dozen models showing off the latest local fashion. In between the designers, entertainment included music artists and dancers. DJ Here Productions helped MC the show for the near capacity crowd.

Lensbaby is a sponsor of the Digital Photo Academy, for whom William teaches Photoshop classes and NIK Software workshops. On this Saturday morning, 23 attendees joined in while William demonstrated each of the Lensbabies along with their optics system – followed by an opportunity to take them out on a La Jolla photo safari. The students loved not only the opportunity to learn about all the Lensbaby options, but the chance to actually give a Composer a free “test drive.” Each participant returned and printed three of their favorite images captured with a Lensbaby, from which 10 winners will be selected to have 11x14s printed (courtesy of Nelson Photo) and displayed in the front window of the store for the month.
Organizer Tony Amat of Nelson Photo reported that the event was definitely a success, and is already planning a sequel at Nelson’s downtown (Little Italy) store in early November. If you haven’t tried them out, this is a great opportunity to add some creative images to your bag of tricks! Accompanying photos are courtesy of Tony Amat and Patrick Gooden.

William Morton Visuals photographed the Celebration 2010 convention for Isagenix. Isagenix, the world leader in nutritional cleansing and replenishing, put on a world-class 3-day event at the San Diego Convention Center.
Titled Celebration 2010, the daily themes were Believe, Achieve, and Decide. Merestone Event Productions created a stage show encompassing each, with a light show worthy of any Las Vegas venue.
Rhythm Nation warmed up the crowd for the grand entrance of Jim & Kathy Coover, the President and Executive Vice President of Isagenix. Notable speakers included the legendary Les Brown, who provided a very inspirational speech to the attendees.
