Camino Arenales

Two weeks ago I woke up early in order to take advantage of some beautiful weather and a great hike through a trail just outside of the city. I went with my friend Ruy Lopes and his father Rui Lopes who is a professional photographer from Canada. I had a great time spending the morning with them and seeing a new part of Medellin. The only down side was a bunch of nasty bug bites but I survived and it was well worth it. Here is a look at some of the photos I snapped that morning.

Santa Fe de Antioquia

Last weekend I took a little side trip out to Santa Fe de Antioquia with the 4 Musketeers (the name that we have given to our little clan which includes myself, my girlfriend and another couple. We have become great friends seeing how we all met together in the same dance academy).

This town is about an hour Northwest of Medellin, Colombia which still has the old colonial feel with the cobblestone roads. Here are a few photos from our weekend get-a-way.

Gran Fiesta Salsera 2012

Last May the newest and most popular salsa academy of Medellin, Colombia, Academia Baila Latino, celebrated their 1 Year Anniversary with a huge event located on the top floor of the Dann Carlton Hotel which is considered the best hotel in the city. With a view of city and the energy of dancing all around there was fun to be had. Here is a look at some of the photos we captured throughout the night including the surprise engagement at the end of the night!

I must give a great deal of the photo credit to my friend and photographer Joseph Le. He was kind enough to help me out with the photos so that I could dance a bit as well! Special thanks to Joel Duncan Photography as well for capturing some great photos of the night which can be found here.

New Business Name: Shaun Patrick Fotos!

Well hello everyone! I know I have taken a half year hiatus from my blog but I am back in full force!

I have spent the last 6 months creating a new photography company in Colombia, South America. It is almost up and ready to go but you will have to wait for another post to hear all about it. For now I want to tell everyone about my new business name. I have decided that “SPStakem Photography” has been a bit confusing for people to understand and it has been even more challenging in Spanish. With that, I introduce my new name: Shaun Patrick Fotos.

I came up with my new name in the middle of the night at about 3am. I was trying to search for a new name forever and then bam! it hit me one night. I woke up, headed to the computer, starting playing around on Photoshop, and then voilà! I had it!

The new design is simple. I have always liked to represent myself with elegant designs. For me, elegance = simplicity. With that, I designed something simple but with a touch of one color and made the “A” without the crossbar in order to get a touch of something a bit more artistic into my design.
