Merry Christmas!

December 22, 2009

I can’t believe it’s almost 2010!   In typical fashion we’re having our end of the year gift certificate sale between now and the end of the year.  Our $200 gift certificates are available for $100, yes – half off!  We’ve got a limited quantity available, so no guarantees if you wait. You can email me, text me, or leave a comment here on the blog if you want one and I’ll get them to you once the studio re-opens on January 3rd.

Have a wonderful Christmas!


Night Shooting with Art

June 30, 2009

I hate shooting with a flash on my camera, and that’s one of the many reasons I’m glad to have met Art Suwansang.

I met Art when he spoke at the Professional Photographers of Oregon Summer School Convention. Aside from being one of the most down to earth and all around cool professional wedding photographers I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with, he’s also a master of taking pictures at night… and no, he doesn’t use a flash. Art made the trip up from Santa Barbara to hang out with all of us Oregon Photographers out in Bend for 3 days, he gave a killer presentation on some of the latest and greatest photo software from Adobe (he’s one of their product testers) and took us all on night shoot in downtown Bend. It was awesome.

As part of his trip to Oregon he was also shooting a friend’s wedding in Portland. With an extra day to kill, he invited me along on another night shoot. I was thrilled to say the least… The catch was, I had to be the model! I dug my wedding dress out of the closet and breathed a big sigh of relief when I realized I could still manage to fit into it.  from 6-10pm I let him drag me around the city while he and  the rest of the “class” posed me and clicked away. It was kinda nice to be on the other side of the camera for a while, and I learned a ton even without a camera in my hands.

Here’s some shots that Corey took as he trailed along watching my modeling career blossom!




Drum roll please…..

Alright, maybe a drumroll is excessive, but it was the best way I could think of to convey my excitement about our new “Boutique Squares Collections.” We just started offering them a month ago and they’ve been such a huge hit that I figured I should tell the whole blogging world about them.  They come in 14″ x 14″ or 18″ x 18″ (14″ versions featured below), with a 1 1/2″ chic black frame and a double thick white on black mat over a 10″ x10″ or 14″ x 14″ print. It took a few iterations with my framing suppliers, but I think we finally nailed it.

Super simple, and super versatile. These puppies look great anywhere and with anything. Hang one by itself, three vertically, five horizontally, a box of nine… you get the idea.

So if you’re tired of a plain old 8×10…or want the equivalent impact of an enormous wall portrait using 10″ prints, swing by the studio to take a look or ask about ’em after your next session.
