  • Portraits Showing The Power of Karate Capturing the Soul in a Picture http://www.vimeo.com/30405847 Karate is more than a workout, it helps mold the soul and builds the character within. The components of Karate portrait are not just about battle or winning that conflict. Karate embodies gratitude, consistency, self-control, individuality, balance, preparedness, compassion, attentiveness, participation, commitment, flexibility, enthusiasm and encouragement. In this karate portrait entitle... [read more]
  • One of the  amazing endowments of a ballet dancer is the appearance of  floating through air.....the weightlessness while gliding over the stage.  A ballet dancer's movement, while suspended in air, is so fleeting, so hard to capture in the mind's eye. So, it's time to take a look at their dance via a still life, frozen in time. In these ballet dancer pictures you'll see an interpretation of art, grace and power they manage. This is a continuing photographic look at Generation Y and the directio... [read more]
  • What is the correct number of senior pictures to purchase for your home today? Parents purchasing professional portraits from a studio are very likely to purchase for their own home use, perhaps an 8 x 10 portrait for a 'love wall' or an 11 x 14 (or maybe a 16 x 20) for wall display. But what they forget is the future. Young adults will someday marry and have a spouse. From this come children and the need for copies of portraits purchased today. When a 10-year-old boy or girl sees a portra... [read more]
  • A Boy Scout's mother had a challenge: create a portrait of her family, three boys with her husband, in a picture with a Boy Scout theme. This creation,  from a studio portrait session, is the end result. Look for other Boy Scout and Scouting family themed art works in the coming months. In Boy Scouts, Baloo is the leader, a concept taken from Kipling's Jungle Story. In this image, you see a father's pride in his young Boy Scouts, and one scout to be. http://www.vimeo.com/26065879
  • Corporate research and development is the birthplace of new ideas, new product and new services. Some people refer to it as raising baby tigers. It's how new products get better and satisfy needs we never even knew we had. What's the corollary for a professional photographer? It's a personal project. A personal project is usually just an inkling of an idea, a concept to master or test. It's creating a photograph that you think might be impossible to create or taking an existing concept and mov...

  • When you purchase senior pictures who were they really for? Many of us would say, 'they are for my parents' and of course, my grandparents need some. As a portrait photographer, I hear this all the time. We think this way because we have a tendency to buy portraits to fulfill our current needs: and we forget about the future. What future needs do you have? Why do you need more than one wall portrait, with some 5x7s for your grandparents and a couple of wallets to hand out to friends. Buying... [read more]
  • How do you archive your images? Do you have them all stored in digital files on hard drives? Do you leave them on your memory sticks and cards? Are they all tucked away in your phone? By archiving all of your images digitally, you run the risk of losing them all. Let me tell you why. I was speaking with a fellow the other day who was very proud that all of his images were stored on hard drives and CDs. He had digital backups to digital backups. He should be proud that he has the foresig... [read more]
  • Will you sell me the original portrait prints you have of your grandparents? Would you sell them for $50? 100? I'll give you $300 for the original prints, okay? Probably not! In fact, if your parents found out you sold those prints they would be livid and you'd lose the car for months. Yet today, most high school (and college) seniors focus on having digital images in their camera, phone, computer or memory stick. And these are not formal portraits, these are snapshots that exist only a... [read more]
