New Christmas Cards

Well, its clearly that season, in fact I’m quite behind…. The Christmas rush for photographers.

Photographers all over are scrambling to get newsletters out, promotions, shoots and on and on. This year, I decided to create my own line of Christmas Card templates. Clearly places like WHCC offer some killer templates, but my budget is a little leaner this year and this gave me an opportunity to practice a little graphic design, which I struggle with, but need to get better at.

Anyway, I hope to have several differing designs. Below is an example of one design with two varying colors. Actually this design is offered in Red, Green and Gold. Clients can choose the front message (3 choices), color and inside greeting… another 3 choices. It isn’t too hard to make the changes and it offers a little more for the clients. I will be offering a Card, Photography session for one flat rate. The Christmas portrait session will be for studio portraits, but of course I will do location if anyone is looking for more than just the Christmas cards – prints or other merchandise that can be ordered.

I hope to knock out a second design in the coming days. Then I’ll post all the detail on the special that High Noon PhotographyI’ll be offering. If you would like to see more of the cards (still a work in progress), then you can head on over to this public online gallery.

For the good folks in El Paso and Las Cruces, please call and reserve your space early for any Christmas or other photography needs. It gets crazy and I want to make sure that you get my best and your cards during the holidays.

Here is the example of the Red Card. All text material can be altered.

Fun Shoot With Dee Dee

I recently had a model session with a lovely gal named Dee Dee. She was wanting to build her portfolio and so we spent a morning taking pictures and having a good time.

We met at my studio; High Noon Photography, and had already devised a game plan. There are a lot of cool locations in and around El Paso, but we decided to build with the basics first. I hope I get the opportunity to take more photographs of her in the future, perhaps doing some location photography.

One of the things you first notice about Dee Dee is her great hair. Letting it fall and cascade around her face was an easy choice to show off. We started with headshots to highlight her hair. She later pulled it back and wore a classy black dress for a more formal and elegant look. Later, we decided to skip the high-key shots and went outside to shoot some of the more playful, informal pictures. We didn’t have a lot of options with the sun and the overall location, so to minimize the harsh light and to have more control, we ended up in the car port. This actually ended up pretty cool, and I ended up using my old beat up truck as another element to the backdrop.

Anyway, I had a lot of laughs and really enjoyed my time with Dee Dee. She is the kind of client that makes photography a lot of fun. Here’s to great success to a lovely and very nice gal.
