Keeping this Blog Authentic

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about why people like to read blogs and what the real purpose of them is, especially in regards to my blog. I’ve always kind of struggle with what to write and what to put on it. I think that people want to read and associate with things that are authentic and real. Being a freelance photographer isn’t easy. I love it, and feel so blessed to do what I love every day. I wouldn’t want to do anything else, but it takes a ton of work to be successful. In an effort to show that I’ve decided to be more authentic and real when it comes to what I write about and show on my blog. It seems like everyone and especially photographers want to paint this picture of how cool and successful they are through their social media and their blogs and I think people get kind of sick of it. I know I do. I want to show a more real side of the photography world. The experiences that I have on a daily basis being a photographer that are both good and sometimes not that great. What I learn and how I learn it in an effort to help others along the way. Come along for the ride and I hope you like it and find it interesting. Thanks for reading and for your support!

New Printed Promo

Last month I decided to have Wonderful Machine help me create a new printed promo piece that I could use as a leave behind after a portfolio review and that I could mail out to potential clients. I’ve done a few leave behinds on my own and felt like they were missing the mark and not making the impact that I wanted. That is why I reached out to Amanda at WM. I needed someone that designs and looks at tons of promotional pieces for photographers all across the country. I wanted a card that was big enough to show the the work but not obnoxious. I also wanted it to have a strong and unique design sense that showcased the work well but didn’t detract from the my work. It was also great to have Sean, Wonderful Machine’s photos editor, hand pick the photos for the promo. As the creator of the work it often times really hard to be a good judge of what images are the strongest and illustrate your brand well. His feedback was very helpful. In the end we ended up going with a 6×8.5 folding card that opened up to to 6×17 with a great triangle inspired design. I’m very happy with my new promo piece and am exited to hand it out to people that I’d love to do some work for. Thanks to Amanda and Sean and WM and to Rikki at Modern Postcard that did a great job of printing the cards for me!  BKF_9685 BKF_9688 BKF_9690 BKF_9692

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I wanted to thank everyone for their support and am looking forward to a great new year.  I love the holidays and I’m exited to start 2013. It’s going to be a great year! Here is a few photos I shot on Christmas Day. I was hanging out at my parents house and looked outside to see some amazing light and fog. I grabbed my camera and ran out the door into the 15 degree weather. It was worth it. Cheers to a new year!TreeFog-1
