Alex | Maternity Session

These two were fun to photograph and I am so happy that I was able to be their photographer, even though they had to take quite a little drive to use me as their photographer. I hope to photograph them as their children grow. My maternity sessions are non-studio lifestyle pictures. I don’t do many bare belly pictures and I try to focus more on the relationship of mother and father and show that there is indeed a baby coming.

Braun Family | Rural MiniSession

The Braun Family was awesome to say the least. I swear I have been lucky with all the clients I have photographed. I hear other photographers talk about clients that are hard to work with… I don’t know what that is like.

Christina and Boys | Mini-Session

Great session with Christina and her boys. These are the type of images that come with my mini-sessions. I used to call them SnapRiot sessions but have decided to offer them as mini-sessions for only $50. Click on the Contact link at the top of my blog to setup a mini-session.

New Brochure [download here]

This is my new brochure. There is a wedding version of the brochure coming soon. I have revised all of my wedding services and the new wedding photography one will be up in a week.

Natalie

Natalie is one of my favorite models to work with. She has pretty much been around from day one with her family. She has also seen my photography skill go from just taking pictures and refining a form to making art. Making the transition from art school to business has taken time. This was our fifth session. This is a prevalent style that you will see in my gallery wraps.
As an artist, the click of the camera is just a single step in the creation of my products. It starts with talking about your final product. What are we doing? In Natalie’s case, I was practicing a new style. I had a general idea of what I wanted to do with the images. They would be artistically edited to show my clients another product of mine and a style and product I offer.
Gallery wraps are for works of art, they are not for common photos. They are expensive and built to last generations. I believe that families should collect gallery wraps for their families at specific milestones in the road of life. To me, gallery wraps are the epitome of celebrating ourselves as a family. It, far more than a common 8×10, will celebrate the passage from high school to adulthood with our senior gallery wraps. Celebrate your family with a gallery wrap that will serve as an heirloom for generations.

My gallery wraps can be traditional but my art lies in a painted contemporary style. I can do traditional, but I don’t think it lends to the gallery wrap art piece as well as my painted style. There are other products like a traditional black and white image with deep blacks on metallic black and white paper wrapped around a floated frame that stands a few inches from the wall. In my gallery wraps, I prefer bright colors and paint-like canvases with beautiful photos. If you have a dream image, come to me with it and we can figure out how to create it together.

Fine Art vs. Photography

In the world today, photography is everywhere and everyone has a camera. Local photographers have multiplied and multiplied creating a minefield of photographers, which ones are good and the ones that aren’t are difficult to find.
In today’s photography world, my style of photography stands out because it is fine art. Fine art is much different in the fact that I create photographic art printed on canvas or fine art photographs. Real photographs are also something I provide, instead of inkjet prints. I am not one to look down on other art but the medium of our art is as important as the display itself. I would say that every photographer out there is using inkjet prints, if they are making real photographs they will let you know. You can’t print fine art on an inkjet. For one, it fades after a decade if it has UV protection less if it is not protected with a coating or UV glass frame. Two, fine art is not meant to fade, ever. Great precautions are made to protect fine art. I make real photographs created using light and a chemical process. The photograph alone will last your lifetime right out of the package. Oh and it will last for at least another generation. These photographs will last for 100 years, far longer if protected further behind museum glass (which we use in our frames).
So, the primary thing you need to ask yourself is this – do you want a picture or do you want art?

Military Wives and Girlfriends | Memorial Day

I was thinking of something unique I could offer for Memorial Day aside from my normal 10% off for military and veterans. I thought about something that is very usable but really is exciting for me and my feeling of creating heirlooms. So, from now until Memorial Day (May 31) I am offering something unique. Contemporary Vintage Wallet Portraits.
Trying to embrace a classic portrait style mixed with my contemporary style, I wanted to create an image that could be used for portraits from wives and girlfriends to their husbands overseas. The portrait session is only $25 and I have a wide array of picture styles to send from portraits on archival art paper which gives the images tactile feeling also. This makes a great gift. I also offer a much more sexy maxim-magazine session starting at $100.
Your session must be scheduled prior to Memorial Day 2010 (May 31). I wish I could keep the offer up all year because these are truly fun.

Wallet style shots are edited to look similar to the image on the right. This is a before/after of original photo and then the contemporary vintage edit

Some of the final product ideas for these sessions are:

Fine Art Archival Prints

Framed Desk Prints

4×6 Hard Print (the fine art print is bonded to a Masonite backing)

5×5 Gallery Wrap

It is a good idea that we talk about your final product before we actually have the session because we can have a general direction to go. If you want a 5×5 Metallic Gallery Wrap we are probably going to shoot a completely different way than a 20×30 fine art paper print. Yes, almost all my products are focused on creating an heirloom. I don’t print any inkjet prints, I still make real photographs and focus on the end product of my photography. They are not cheap and will last generations. 90% of photographers use inkjet prints, not me. Ask me why if you are interested in knowing the differences.

Travis and Kira

Visalia dad, Travis and daughter Kira were a lot of fun in this session. We shot in a pink dress and then her play clothes. Here are some shots from the session in her play clothes.

Services and Prices Brochure 2010

Here is a download for my brochure for 2010. I prefer web brochures these days because I prefer a green manufacturing system. I am not going to tout that I am the greenest this or that… it is a way of life and nothing to advertise really. This web brochure is in .pdf format and if you need any assistance, email me and I can assist you.

Photo Tip | Your Prints

Prints really matter. A lot of people love printing their photos at home and I do myself sometimes, but I usually print something to hand to my sons. They love getting pictures of a bear that I photographed or a macro shot of a bee, my oldest is four and I just like handing him photographs even though they end up on the floor or in the hands of a one year old. These pictures are for that purpose. Any photograph you print on an inkjet, no matter how great they say the ink is, no matter how good your film paper is going to lose quality quicker than traditional photographs.

Traditional photographs are not printed, the photographs are created by exposing light on light sensitive paper. Make sure you get photographs not prints. Photographs will last longer because of the process. Inkjet papers can last longer through a light coating that is applied in some pro shops, especially UV coating. Most of us cannot do that. Well, that really is where the professional photographer comes in.

All those inkjet pictures you have printed over the last few years will be almost completely faded in 20 years in storage or half that on the wall in a home display. Well, over half of the local professionals use inkjet printers from the last few years. Odds are that if you have a photograph in the last few years they are digital prints to inkjets. Your pictures will not be around when your children are older, they will be faded. They might still be recognizable, maybe.

All those that have stuck with film have actual photographs, not prints. In my home, we have photographs, not prints. The entire purpose of the professional photographer is to give you photographs, make sure your photographer is getting photographs to you and not inkjet prints. If you are getting inkjet prints make sure they are coated. Even coated inkjet prints will not last as long as a photograph.
