Business portraits for Linked In and other business networking sites in Dayton

Business portraits for Linked In and other business networking sites in Dayton

A Picture is WORTH More than a Thousand Words I was just reading some research about advertising. They were comparing words to pictures in advertising and found out that people respond to photographs is milliseconds. In the past they thought people tended to respond more quickly to photographs than they respond to words, but this definitive research found that photographs could make or break an ad. They found that people respond to photographs within milliseconds where as words take much longer…. seconds as a matter of fact. Does a...

Gorgeous Senior Portrait Keepsake Album

Dana is a lovely girl that I photographed in the fall       After talking with her mom, we decided to create an album I am working with a graphic designer to custom design each album and the albums are leather-bound with photographic pages. This is not a press printed product with the standard book pages, but each page is printed photographically onto photographic paper. I also go ahead with additional things like full color correction on every image.   I have one sample album from another senior, but I will also be ordering a studio...

Trail Blazer Magazine Cover for November edition

Each time that my wife Patty participates in an Endurance ride (AERC.org), if I can I usually come with her and photograph the participants in the rides. When I share the galleried here and on Facebook, sometimes they get noticed. This time one of my images was noticed by the editors of TrailBlazer Magazine. This time around one of the pictures that I took is now the front cover of the November edition of the magazine.   Congratulations to the riders who made the cover of the magazine, participants in the Spook Run Endurance ride in...

Fall Colors and Alicia G’s Senior Portrait session in Dayton Ohio (Dayton Senior Portrait Photographer)

Alicia G’s senior portraits came out so nicely. What a lovely young lady. After rescheduling about 4 different times, we finally were able to meet up (Alicia with her mom) at one of the local metro parks for her senior portraits. She had a dress she wanted to be photographed in and then a casual outfit with blue jeans and a nice sweater.    ...

SPOOK RUN AERC Endurance Ride with Appaloosa Nationals November 1 & 2, 2013

Bad Weather on Thursday Night was not a foretelling of the weekend to come When we arrived on Thursday night to set up camp it was raining hard and consistently. It was warm rain even though the weather had been rather cold in the days leading up to this event. Setting up in the rain is no longer a big deal for us. We had been used to sleeping in the back of a two-horse bumper pull trailer, swept out with cots added. Now we have a two-horse SHADOW gooseneck trailer with living quarters. Once we were set up, Patty was able to vet in and then...

Dana and her haflinger (Dayton senior portrait photographer)

We started with Dana’s frisky haflinger Dana rides her haflinger almost every day according to her mom. We met for her senior portraits at the horse trailer parking area at Carriage Hill Metro Park in Huber Heights, Ohio. A couple of stable buddies were there for a short ride, so Dana’s horse was pretty frisky. We did not have any problems though and her horse perked his ears frequently as he heard the other riders just down the path. I’m only sharing a few images as Dana’s senior portrait sneak peek which I also...

Same park, same family, different girl – Dayton area senior portraits

So fun to be able to do the senior portraits for two people in the same family   I photographed Liz Mahan a couple of years ago and received a call from Mrs. Mahan to photograph her other daughter  as well. I also appreciate what that says about what they think about my work in photography. Melissa Mahan was lovely for the session and brought a perfect variety of outfits for the time we had to shoot. You’ll have to excuse me, it’s been some time since I have posted on my blog. I’m hoping to get back up to speed starting with...

Greenstone DLSC Dressage show June 16 2012 portraits and tests

One thing that I really appreciate about Dressage shows at Greenstone, it’s all the trees around the main arena providing cool shade for riders, horses and spectators. I would encourage some of the other riding centers to plant a few fast growing maple trees for shad around their outdoor arenas. It’s really nice on a hot sunny day to be able to find cool shade. Senior portraits and farm call sessions I spoke to several people about their desire to schedule a farm call session for some portraits of them with their horses. Both farm...

Noel’s senior portrait session with beautiful white dress

Noel seems so comfortable in her own skin. At her school in Wyoming Cincinnati all the girls graduate in white dresses so they wanted to have some of her senior portraits taken with the white dress. I have to say, that Noel was just lovely. In this first portrait, I just think that she looks like a model, so elegant and yet comfortable being photographed. Once those braces are off, Noel is going to break the hearts of a lot of young men as she goes off to college in the fall.         After the family makes some selections,...

Creative family poses, creative senior portraits, creative equine portraits

Great examples of portrait photography posing and ideas I’ve been having fun on Pinterest over the past month or so gathering examples of creative family poses, creative senior portrait poses and even creative equine portraits. On Pinterest when you re-pin something it always takes you back to the original pin and usually it shows you the originator of the actual image. If I pin something directly from another photographers web site, I always add the name of the photographer in the comments section under the photo. I think this is only...
