Finally, It is Back To The Studio
January and February are always tough months to be a photographer. Unless you photograph newborns (which I don't), there is not much call for Studio Sessions or Weddings. I have been working too much at L.L.Bean to line up more than a couple of weddings this summer, and no Studio Sessions. So, I decided it was time to try a little advertising through FaceBook. [Time for a little self serving advertising, please like my Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Jim-Walker-Photography/114541688557470?fref=photo Thank you!]
The advertising led to a query e-mail from a young lady in Portland, Queenie. She was interested in a photo session on Valentines Day. Now I was thrilled, but not quite sure if the session would actually happen. Another Blizzard was due to hit Portland and Lewiston, Maine on Saturday afternoon. I made the appointment with Queenie for Saturday afternoon, and crossed my fingers. Queenie ,and her friend Chris, were a little late, but they made it. What a great couple. We chatted for awhile, and discussed what she had in mind as I showed them the Studio. We just began playing with poses, and locations and tried to have fun. It was fun shooting in the Studio again, especially with the lights.
I am handing in my resignation with L.L.Bean for the end of March. I need to devote more time to my Photography. It has been a good 14 years with L.L.Bean, but time to move on and do what I really enjoy doing, Photographing People... I have Studio Time available for Families, Couples, Corporate Headshots, and Models that need to update their portfolios. Contact me at wal[email protected] if you would be interested in booking a shoot.
On another note, I feel honored to have been asked to join the Board of Directors for Maine Professional Photography Association. I am looking forward to our annual convention in Brunswick in April, and entering the Photography competition with some of my Portraits.
