Ready to Open!

Practicing and Ready for post-confinement! 

In photography, unlike in dentistry or a hair styling, you do not need to be physically close to do an excellent job. But as a photographer, the interaction with your subject(s) is also the key to a great portrait. While doing a few “porch portraits” or “front yard portraits” benefiting a couple of nonprofits earlier in the month, I experimented with social distancing as a photographer. At first, it feels slightly awkward to interact with people from a distance, but these experiences made me more confident with the situation.  Porch family portrait Porch family portrait

Working indoors will require me to wear a mask. I grew accustomed to wearing a mask during the past 5 years, while photographing for Soulumination at the Children’s Hospital. It’s not easy: beyond the fog on the viewfinder, this thing blocks your face and smile! I built strategies overtime to compensate for that, with bigger smiles (big smiles can be perceived even with a mask, mostly thru the eyes) and more hand movements.

So, while sessions may feel a bit different for the next few months, I am ready to reopen and continue to deliver fantastic images!  

New Studio, Fresh paint…

Not really a new studio, but it feels like it thanks to new paint on the walls and floor, and an updated setup… Painting the floor was something I had put off, because it would have forced me to close the studio for 2 weeks. The Stay at Home order was the perfect opportunity to finally get to it. Now it’s done and it’s beautiful, ready to welcome you back!
