Here we are, squarely in the Quiet Season, but I’m still busy.

What’s been going on and what’s coming up.

I know it’s been a while since I’ve added anything here. It’s the down time of the year for photographers in this area. The weather outside has turned cold which limits anything down outside. Christmas is over so everyone has their fill of portraits and such. Valentine’s Day is upon us so the boudoir season is also winding down which means the demand for those images will be decreasing.

But that’s not to say that I’ve been idle. I’ve recently bought a video camera so I can hold Skype lessons with those that are interested in photography and modeling. I’m also working on weekly clips of five minutes or less about various topics in the business. I will add links here on this page to the relevant videos but all of them will be hosted on my own YouTube page if you want to see them all.

I’ve been updating my Facebook business page not to mention slowly updating my blog pages by deleting old images, streamlining things, unifying a consistent look to them, et cetera.

But that’s not the biggest news.

Rebecca and Bjorn's bonding session

I’m very proud and excited to announce that I’m in the process of rebuilding a studio here at my place. I have been photographing boudoir sessions in a room here dedicated for that purpose but I’ve also started to research and accumulate gear to set up a dedicated studio space so that I can get back into headshots, fashion, beauty, and fitness sessions.

It has been a few years since I’ve had such a space and I’m really excited about getting back into it. Location photography will always have my heart but I really miss having the ability to shoot inside when the weather isn’t cooperating or when someone needs that style of images. It’s a slow process but it is coming along.

Please feel free to visit any of the above linked sites and leave some love. Leave some love here, too. Let me know what you think about the things to come, topics you’d like covered in the weekly video clips, or to book your session today.
