A Photographer's Lightbox

Client Consultation

Its very important during a portrait session to engage the client.  Talk to them and let them see the pictures.  It will keep their interest and make it a true collaboration.

    • I handed my second camera to the owner, literally a snapshot. I look dis-shiveled, sweaty and grey which I was and am. “Journey” is a 5 year old Rocky Mountain horse, a breed from the Appalachian foothills of Kentucky where the mountains were and are ‘Rocky’. Wonderful temperament, tough and determined. He was checking my pockets for goodies but no bites or kicks, very calm, just an easy horse to be around. Bossy to the two larger standard breds in turnout with him. The owner, Cheryl, is a old friend and ex-coworker at IBM / Lenovo. She was the first person to ever hire me for a a photos session, also a Rocky Mountain horse. I was not happy with that first session 3 years ago so I re-shot it. Her patience with my inexperience was a big help.

      • Well now, at this age, we need to take compliments whenever / wherever we get them . . . No acceptation granted!
        My little pooch “Seven,” an adorable but playful Shit Tzu, looks for treats from me when he obeys my commands.
        What a fast learner treats can create. Kinda like compliments . . .
