In With the New

Uncategorized

So business stationary might not do all that much for you, but I’m totally psyched (did I really just say that?) about my new business cards!

I really liked my old ones but it was time for a change. I figured I should probably have a picture on them since I am a photographer after all. These are more wedding-y and I’m really happy with them.

So come find me and ask for one of my shiny new cards!

Oh, and I also got some new stickers in this week. Little round circles with my signature star and lots of green.

It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary.
-David Bailey, In “Face” (London), December, 1984

Photography 101: Kiss My Aspect Ratio
This will be my first installment of Photography 101 and I hope it won't scare you away, but I'm going to talk a bit about aspect ratios. Before I get into that, let's start at the beginning.

Happy 2011!There's so much to say about 2010. I've been back in the Philly area for two years now and can hardly believe how lovingly I've been welcomed and embraced by my old home. I showed up in December 2008 – the recession had just hit and things were bad. I knew merely a handful of people around here and absolutely no professional connections to help me get established. 2009 was rough for all of us. I wondered if I'd made the right decision in moving from San Francisco. I had forgotten how cold this area could get. I missed my friends on the west coast. But I also photographed some beautiful weddings. I started meeting other wed ...

Headshot session by the ballpark
I had a great session with Grace the other day. She performs (acts and sings) in plays in her spare time (which isn't much). She's from England and has just a fabulous British accent. She's also got these stunning clear blue eyes. Chek them out... Grace has a very genuine smile that came out easily. Making a serious face was a task - when asked how to do it her friend told her to "think of something serious, like dog poo." Serious indeed.Again, I've been lucky to get someone totally laid back.This is the one that she ultimately chose for her headshot in an upcoming production program.Keep an eye open for Grace coming to a city near you! ...
