Wedding Slideshow and a Contest!

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Gallery updates… soon

Updating my website galleries with last year’s photos is a daunting task, but in the meantime I’ve put together a demo reel for weddings. (p.s. This is the style of slideshow that comes with certain wedding collections, and can be added on to any other collection.) It’s way more fun if you watch it full screen :)

Give a review and you can win!

I need your help getting some reviews on Google Places, and to thank you, one lucky person will receive a $125 gift certificate for photography.

All people who submit a review (including your name, so I can let you know if you win!) before February 28th will be entered into a random draw for the gift certificate, which can be used towards any portrait session fees or prints. You can also re-gift it to someone you like!

Here’s what you need to do:

1. Head over to my Google Places listing.

2. Just below the photos, click on “Sign in to rate” (you’ll need a Google account to submit a review, but you don’t need a Gmail address to have an account).

3. Leave a review including your name (you can skip last name if I can easily identify you otherwise).

4. Don’t worry if your review doesn’t show up immediately; Google takes a while to approve it.

Thank you in advance!

Please vote for me!

(Like last year, I don’t think you need to be in Lethbridge to vote.)

Once again, thank you for your love! :)

Artsbridge Magazine

Friday, October 8th, 2010

I had the honor of having my photography in the latest issue of the Allied Arts Council’s Artsbridge Magazine, which is published biannually. Their main theme in this issue was the relationship between arts and the environment, and I was also asked to photo illustrate a couple of the stories within the magazine. My photo of Marie is across the front and back cover, with two photos of Starsha within. It was so much fun photographing for Artsbridge and I’m so thankful to have been given the chance :)

You can pick up a free copy at the Allied Arts Council office located at 318 7 Street South in downtown Lethbridge. (more…)

Drupal Camp Alberta 2010

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Because I design websites in addition to doing photography, I sometimes go to really nerdy conferences too! The guys at Redwall organized this year’s Drupal Camp Alberta, which was held at the University of Calgary over two days this past weekend. They had some really great speakers this time around and I learned a ton, plus had a great time with everyone. Not all nerds lack social skills :)

There are more photos after the jump. (more…)

Photo Club Presentation

Monday, September 13th, 2010

This Thursday I’ll be giving a brief talk at the Lethbridge Photo Club on how to choose a website for your photography. I’ll cover the differences between doing it yourself, purchasing a template, and hiring a designer. I won’t be talking about how to make a website, but rather how to determine what is the best choice for your work and skill level (and wallet!).

Date: Thursday, September 16th
Time: 6:30pm (I’ll be on around 7pm)
Location: Lethbridge Public Library Theatre

If you’ve never been to the Photo Club before, they allow you in for free for your first meeting to check it out and see if you want to buy a membership or not.

Hope to see you there!

Photoshop World 2010, Las Vegas

Saturday, September 4th, 2010

Photoshop World 2010 in Vegas was even more fun than the Boston one! A few of us from The University of Lethbridge, including Michael Warf, ventured down to Sin City this last week to learn about Photoshop, design, and photography, as well as to do some crazy networking. I averaged around 5 hours of sleep each night, but isn’t that what you are supposed to do in Vegas?

Like last year, pardon the bad point and shoot camera photos. I had to throw a few of the not-very-in-focus ones in just because that’s all I had. Speaking of which, my little Sony is 6 years old now. Does anyone recommend a good, small camera I should get to replace it?

We stayed at THEhotel, since Mandalay Bay had no more openings by the time we made our reservations. Lucky for us! THEhotel was stunning, and easily the nicest place I have ever stayed. It was hard to leave. If it had a kitchen, I would have been just fine living there forever!

Lotsa photos!! (more…)
