Photography Studio Support

Chiseled Images …More Than Just Post-Production

Everyday I field phone calls from photographers and even current clients looking for a service to help them with some problem or with tasks that they just really don’t like doing. I always smile as 90% of the time I already offer that service and they just don’t know. Here’s the spiel. I can’t take the images for you, I can’t hold the reflector for you at a session, and I can’t sell your images one on one with your clients. However, almost anything else that involves your studio/business we can probably take care of. That’s right, if you need IT support, Photoshop training, retouching, digital oils, resources, workflow, web design, graphic design, album design, template design, color correction, bookkeeping, blog writing, Facebook support, newsletters created, just about anything that we don’t have to be physically in your studio to do, we can take care (and yes, being able to remote login allows me to do even more than you’re thinking right now). Sorry, but that also means we cannot talk with your clients… yeahh there’s a reason we are behind the scenes people :).

What do you do with an image that you have no clue what to do with? YOU CHANGE IT! You make it what you want it to be!

Pre-visualization Part 3

So far we’ve looked at how Ansel Adams use Pre-visualization, how I use it my personal work, and I hope you are seeing how this relates to the everyday.  Pre-visualization isn’t just good for dramatic landscapes or when you have time to set up everything, compose on the ground glass, insert your sheet holder (I […]

Pre-Visualization Part 2

In my last post I talked about Ansel Adams and his discovery of the importance of Pre-visualization in his work.  The above image is one of the best found cases of pre-visualization in the world.  Ok, maybe not, but sometimes I think so.  This was an image that I captured one day off the coast […]

Pre-Visualization Part 1

“When I’m ready to make a photograph, I think I quiet obviously see in my mind’s eye something that is not literally there”.   – Ansel Adams Ansel first came to this conclusion after a climb to Yosemite’s Diving Board on an April Sunday afternoon.  The so named Diving Board, because of the small bit of […]
