Head shots in Dayton for business, Linked In, Facebook and more

Head shots in Dayton for business, Linked In, Facebook and more

Professional head shots make a good impression I enjoy providing head shot portraits to people who want to make a good presentation of themselves on social media. My goal is to capture images that show your personality and natural expressions whether you are in a suit or in more relaxed attire.   Every day when I get onto Linked In and Facebook I see profile images that reflect poorly on executives, business owners, and just regular people too. I see people in dark shadows, out of focus images that people think are “good...

Kentucky Die Hards November 2014

The weather turned out great for the Kentucky Die Hards Endurance Ride at the Shake Village, November 22, 2014. Although it was in the teens earlier in the week, on the day of the ride it got into the upper 50s.

Nick’s Senior Portraits with an Urban Flavor

Nick’s Senior Portraits with an Urban Flavor

Sure, we can do something right here in Miamisburg, I said I was talking with Nick’s mom on the phone. I had asked her what her son wanted in his senior portraits the day. I said there are the Metro Parks her around Dayton that are very nice. Some seniors are looking for something a little more edgy like portraits in front of a graffiti wall. Or that perhaps he would like something more urban in flavor. She called me back to explain that he would like something a little more urban, but can we do that with Miamisburg. I explained that we...

I saw that two adoptions had been approved for Amy and Dave

They had pictures from the court room showing that their adoption of two children who they had been foster parents for, for several years had become official. It was an exciting day for the family. Amy is a Facebook friend and that is where I saw all this unfolding. I have a soft spot in my heart for parents who are willing to do foster care and who adopt children. So, I messaged Amy and said how about a family group session, a fun walk in the park family session for their new family. No session fee, just buy what you like from the gallery...

Horse pictures that are “good enough”, but are they?

Horse pictures that are “good enough”, but are they?

  If you are trying to sell your horse, pictures can say a thousand words The question is what are those words telling your prospective buyer. With the horse pictures that I frequently see on Facebook and in equine group pages for horse owners, some really bad images are in all likelihood making these sellers think that the bottom has fallen out of the horse market.   Just so you understand, I have a specialty in equine photography. Mostly I love taking portraits of people with their equine companions, but I also take pictures that...

Portraits that are “good enough”

Portraits that are “good enough” I’ve been noticing articles in my professional photographer’s magazine about the significant change in the market. For business portraits we see it on LINKED IN which is the FACEBOOK of the business world. It is online social media for business people. I frequently see either no profile portrait at all or some snapshot of the person.   Are you being noticed for the right reasons? Each time I take business portraits for someone who they post onto their LINKED IN profile, they tell...

Royal K, David Kuhbander Memorial Horse Show September 7th 2014

Royal K, David Kuhbander Memorial Horse Show September 7th, 2014 The horse show seemed to be fun for all involved. The weather was beautiful with a cool breeze most of the day. Compared to Friday when it was 90+ degrees and very humid, there could not have been a better day (although as  photographer I prefer a few more clouds for softer light). Here are just a couple of shots from the show. It was fun seeing all the smiles throughout the day.       Here is the link to the gallery: Just click on it to go see your pictures....
