or you can just visit the main sight & Search” for either my profile or name. As of the 20th of November 2013, we had 25 images posted (but this is just a tenth of our collection) so keep checking in.
Images are available in a myriad of sizes and paper styles, canvas, metal prints and greeting/note cards. We’d love to hear your feed back and requests for specific types of images and how you feel the pricing is placed.
Hopefully by 2014 we’ll have our OWN full gallery open with payment processing and custom processing.
Minds-i has slowly been relearning how to recoup a loss of market share in the photography business.
When we lost our studio….a large portion of my confidence went with it, I (we) loved doing indoor studio pictures of students & family members. But….society has changed how it perceives photographs. So…….it took us a while to adjust.
Along with onsite portraiture, business portraits & event photography we now have added low-altitude* aerial imagery. We have the capabilities to shoot high def video (up to 4.7K cine class vid. ) as well as stills. New equipment will be added as we grow….hope to hear from you soon.
Now…..while we got to scurry around and set up lights to properly record the events after the banquet we also got to meet and mingle lots of people from our fine city of Liberty. Politicians, city managers, large grocery store chain managers, law-enforcement personnel etc….all the people a good Chamber of Commerce(like Liberty) needs invested to make it all worth while. PLUS…in between the fund-raising events, grip & grin photos and the upcoming main event itself…..we were fed a lovely meal.
The chamber hold this event each year with the goal of raising scholarship funds for worthy Liberty Area school students….. what could be more worthy than education?
How could this go wrong? Well…..it didn’t!
as usual I over pack and bring MORE lights than one could possibly need to illuminate a darkish ballroom – 150 x 300 ft x 12 ft tall (but…if ONE light failed I was ready…so…3 outta 6 sufficed!!) (Check out some pix from last years event until I post the 2013 images)
(Though …I really Do want to update my IR linked strobes with something more high tech like Pocket-WizardsCanon Mini-TT1 & Flex TT-5 so I can work unrestricted inside & out instead of line-of-sight! (This allows some GREAT effects outside yielding some stunning portraits unlike the newbies around this area have ever seen.
Of course…some day I’ll upgrade to a Canon 5D-mk iii (vs my poor old 5D) which barely even NEEDS lights with it’s impressive noise control & high ISO ranges. Yeesshh……
ANYway…..get involved in your local Chamber….you’ll be glad you did!
A month ago we announced we were downsizing……DOWNSIZING! Not Quitting!
Economics……public perception of how photography is used & seen……peoples tastes…and again…”The Economy” has forced us to realize that our current space (as wonderful as it is) is TOO large to maintain are a killer.
So….we’ve been searching for a new place to call home…..in Liberty predominantly…..perhaps Gladstone or in the 3-5 mile radius around our current place.
And we’re STILL looking!!! There are some grand places…but…once again…it’s “All about the Money”. (Yes….like our clients….we hear you!)
But….you Do get what you pay for. So….if you,,,our faithful clients, customers and friends…have knowledge of ANY properties…1200-2000 sq ft with 9 ft ceiling and minimal walls…..that isn’t an arm/leg & 8 fingers to heat & cool…..Speak Up!
I bet we’ve looked at it already!
and to the fine folks @ RED Development…”ANSWER YOUR PHONE/e-mails!”
Is it really about what you see/hear/feel…………or is it more?
I’ve always been one to “see” an image when out scouting for something to photograph. It’s a combination of what is real (before my lens) PLUS…..”more” …details deep inside my mind. When I get home with the image and it’s opening in my computer…….. start “Developing” the image in Photoshop……but……”more details” come to me….so….more development. Then….I look at the image as a whole and “crop” the image to gain more of what I intended to share with my gallery. People will look at the image…and sometimes…see things I totally did NOT “See”.
Everyone has a different outlook on what is put before them.
Case in point:: I found a YouTube clip from “Open Culture” about the opening chord of the Beatles song “Hard Days Nite”….breaking it down……component for component.
It’s scarey…..visceral and at times….”Right on target”
Granted…not ALL my patrons are like this…but, there are times as I sit in my chair…nodding….watching….waiting for a hint of question about my work….listening to comments among friends about my works that I find myself whole heartedly agreeing.
