Summer Photo Challenge and misc | Calgary Photographer07.03.12

I apologize in advance for this very random and large post…I have had so many posts that I have wanted to start or have started and not finished…June was a bit of a whirlwind with school finishing early in June, travel back to Calgary for a bunch of sessions, a purchase of a house coming through (long story), renovations and clean up being done to the house, camps, a couple more sessions, move and birthdays.  It has been great as I can now start to feel settled (at least for a bit – this is the 7th home in 12 yrs:).

I have booked the rest of my trips back this year and they are booking up quick as an email did go out to clients on the waitlist first (please let me know if you know of future sessions that you would like and the months that you are considering, as I am trying to take that into account with my travel).

My schedule for the rest of the year is as follows:

– August 21-26

– September 20-October 1

– October 25-28

– November 15-18

– December 6-9

August and September have a few spots remaining and the rest are still fairly open.

Cristina has been helping me by writing some posts.  One of which is about “what to wear” as we get this question a lot.  I will have this post up over the next couple of weeks.

I am back in September for fall sessions as well as for the CIBC Run for the Cure.  Tot Shots has a team each year.  There are typically 20 of us and we raised $12,000 last year.  We are hoping to do the same this year (if not better).  Steph, my team mate who is battling the disease, has been working hard to raise funds and we are already over $5000…YEAH Steph!  Thoughts are still with her as she continues with her battle!  My family will not be there running/walking with me this year so I would love to have you come and run/walk with me.  If you would like to support our efforts but are not able to attend, please follow our link here to donate.  Thanks a lot!

Now on to the photo challenge…in the past I have offered photography classes as part of my social series.  This year I am not going to have the opportunity to do an in-studio session for you so thought that it would be fun to do an online one.  Feedback that I received from participants in the past, is that they found it overwhelming to take all of the info they learned and apply it at once.  So throughout the summer, I am going to post a tip or photography rule each Monday and I challenge you to work on just that tip throughout the week.  It will allow you to just focus on one element at a time.  I will begin on July 9th and will start with a composition rule and will progressively get more technical through the summer.  The challenge can just be for yourself or you are welcome to send me your best shot from the week – cuz I kinda enjoy looking at photos:).  Happy summer everyone and I look forward to seeing what you capture!

Here is a quick shot of my kids from yesterday:).
