There have been so much going on with our business that I have neglected my blogging duties. Don’t worry I am trying to find a way to stay on top of the game, and be more productive (yes, more than I have ever been! – just watch it’s coming. )
To recap last year I was published and won photographer of the month a couple of times. I have been working with a local Fashion Group, Chance Fashion who produces a runway show every month. Check them out, they are pretty awesome-sauce, and if you attend one of their shows you may see me shooting.
I have been working with a few local designers as well for their product photography, shooting weddings, and seniors as well and still treasurer for a local pro-photography group PCPPA. All in all, a very busy year and 2016 is already full of promise (like updating website to make it super cool).
I have also been working on a new project – It’s called “May your dreams come true”. The idea is to take a fairy-tale or any story you like and create a composite of it. Like this one:
This image is a composite of two these two.
This idea has been in the works for a few months now, and was inspired by my sons time at the NICU at Seattle Children’s Hospital. He had a spinal surgery and when I was there, I was moved by the resilience of the children. They were fighting cancer and other non-curable diseases and they still have their hopes up. They fight everyday and they are still happy and nothing can dampen their spirits. I wanted to give something back to the families of these brave children. Something that’s tangible and will bring a smile to their face every time they look at it. Something memorable. So I worked on sharpening my Photoshop skills, attended workshops from people like Renee Robyn, until I feel like I am ready to offer this to them. I did not want it to be like a copy and paste elementary project, but something of quality. I know that some of the children are bed-ridden and cannot get up and get their photos taken so I will work with any image that they have – cellphone image, print image, digital image, etc. I will make it happen.Tags: 2ManuallyFocus, children with cancer, children with incurable diseases, fashion, fashion photography, forest, project, seattle fashion photographer, seattle photographer, seattle wa, tacomaphotographer, tree
