Let's start with Dogs. I'm starting to open the doors to dog shoots this year. They will be $250 at a location of choice or in studio. I'll give roughly 5 images fully retouched via digital delivery and the session will generally last one hour at sunset if outdoors. I'm doing this because it's special to remember your pets and having a killer shot to hang on your wall is always nice to have. We have some wonderful ones on our wall and I'm so proud to have them because we just lost our first pet this year and I'd kick myself if I hadn't taken the time to get an intimate portrait done of Isabella.
Beside my volunteer work with Austin Dog Rescue, these will be paid portraits for clients that I'll showcase here . I'm excited to offer this in 2016 and hope that it grows in popularity as the weather gets nicer.
Here above is Gus, my first endeavor this year. He's a 3 year old Border Collie and an amazing subject. He was very patient as I shot film on the Mamiya and digital on the Sony a7rii. I was extremely happy with the results on both cameras. The film was processed at Miller's Lab and they sent it back in 2 days. Love working with them! Color rendition was fantastic and I did virtually no editing besides cropping. I got my scans back on CD for the price with negatives all bundled up nicely.
Updates are...I'm open for business. 2016 is in hopes of being an even more successful year than 2015. I had an amazing year in 2015, accomplished a lot, made some relationships, produced amazing images, tripled my Instagram viewers and added many to the blog and Twitter. 2016 will be the focus on the brand, and narrowing a focus area so I can manage my workflow.
Looking forward to making new friends and images this year. Hope your 2016 is spectacular.
