  • A Picture's Impact, A Photo's Power Professional Portraits of Consequence After creating portraits in our professional studio, the moment of truth arrives when it comes time to edit photos. We call it, “Live Editing.” Sitting down with a customer and reviewing images, discarding some, keeping others is sometimes hard on the photographer's ego, and sometimes great for the photographer's ego. Great moments occur when a mother becomes emotional while reviewing portraits. Because as we always s... [read more]
  • An Eagle Scout's portrait elicited this comment from his mother, "Exciting ! We've had so many positive comments about his photo! Thanks."  Wendy C.

  • Will the photographic print become extinct in my life? Based upon current consumer behavior, the answer is yes! However, the universal truth of consumer behavior is that it is dynamic, not static. Consumer decisions may head one direction one year, and then change directions the following year. Time will tell if an archive of photographic hard prints will last longer than an archive of digital images. The role of a printer - whether that be a photographic printer or lithographic printer (t... [read more]
  • A portrait is about somebody, a picture is of somebody. Some may not see the difference  between a portrait and a picture, but a professional  photographer defines the difference.  As a member of Professional Photographers of America  (and California as well as Orange County) I live the difference every single day, every single portrait that I create. Watch this video on professionalism versus snapshots, portraits vs. pictures. Martial Artistry

  • Some time has passed since I researched and wrote about the coming new wave in photography, the dominance of cell phone cameras, specifically the new generation of SmartPhones. (SmartPhones Morphing into The New Point & Shoot Camera for Consumers, August 3, 2011, published on this site, and published in Professional Photographers of California's September magazine.) As an exclamation mark to my article, I heard Paul Simon's song, 'Kodachrome' the other day and began to think about how art... [read more]
  • A short thank you note from a recent University of La Verne graduate who  just received her pictures: "The portraits are very, very, very nice, you did a wonderful job and I'm really very happy with them. Roberta L."
  • Is the consumer's love affair with dedicated digital cameras coming to an end? Will consumers reacquaint themselves with professional photographers as they jettison their bulky DSLRs and unconnected point-and-shoot cameras? Has the consumer realized that little 'P' on the Mode dial doesn't think for them? Will the pinhole camera in their cell phone become the new standard for consumer imagery? Over the past several years consumers have enjoyed their new digital point-and-shoot and DSLR cam... [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]
