Let it snow!

_MG_3521.jpg

Summer is long gone, fall fell and blew away, winter has descended upon the land. There’s snow in them there hills, and it’s soon going to be flying down here, too. We are excited! There is so much beauty in a softly falling snowy day, and we can’t wait to shoot it. From warm fuzzy hoods to colourful scarves and tuques, to red toboggans and green evergreens frosted with white, winter is a wonderful season for photography.

Last winter we had the pleasure of getting to know Jonathan and Bintang who celebrated their anniversary by having a winter session with us. After some romantic images in the woods, they decided to brave the cold and the unexpected truck passing for some colourful images and then got into the spirit of the season by ending the session with a snow ball fight. Here are some of my favourite images from that day.

Looking for a perfect Christmas Card Session? Book us before December 1st while winter is still fresh. You bring the warm and cosy hats and gloves, we’ll bring the hot chocolate to warm you up with, and we’ll all head outside in winter gear with a sled, ski gear or the family dog for a romp in the snow. Looking for something a little warmer? Join us in our studio or we can come to your home for a cosy indoor session gathered around a fireplace or the table making cookies. Winter may be long and cold, but this season our hearts are warm and full. Let it Snow!

Where Art Thou? I was in the Tumbler Ridge News, thank you very much….

Well, it’s not like the cover of Times or anything, but a photo of me and a bunch of photos (ooh, meta) appeared in the Tumbler Ridge news last week. Yes, I know, a little late to the game, but I’m trying. The internet here is killing me. Seriously.

Here’s the link to the article and the picture. I lent Greg my lights, if you’re wondering…. http://tumblerridgenews.com/index.php/arts-a-culture/9004-where-art-thou-2011

Where Art Thou? Since you ask, at Where Art Thou? Tomorrow afternoon

Hey all.

Just a quick note that Eye For Detail Photography will be doing Facebook headshots again this year at Where Art Thou? Tomorrow, September 7, in the Community Centre. We’ll be in room 1 (most likely), which is just inside the community centre door. Come in and update your Facebook profile picture, book a family session now that summer is finally arrived (ahem), or come in and ask me anything and everything you could possibly want to know about taking pictures.

And the winners are…

Congratulations to Kassandra Palmer  from Tumbler Ridge and Melanie Moch from Dawson Creek who won the Show Us Your ‘Tude Photo Contest. Each of these grads will be receiving a half hour portrait session and 20X30 gallery wrapped canvas of their favourite image. Thank you to everyone who came out and voted.

Ain’t dead yet…

Hey all.

I’ve just been looking back at my pitiful posting schedule over the last month or two. Sorry about that. Been really busy. Haven’t done my favourites for last year, haven’t done “how did I miss that?” Haven’t posted a whole lot.

I am around, and will hopefully be playing catchup.

Thanks. In the meantime, to keep you occupied, here’s a photo of Fashion Photographer Chuck Arlund and his really big lens.

Photos For Food Fundraiser Tumbler Ridge


Photo by David Falcon

While it might not look like it yet, Christmas is fast approaching. And one of the staples of the Christmas season, alongside trees and presents and lights and sleighbells in the snow is charity.
Christmas is a time where we stop and recognize the less fortunate people in our community, in our country, and across the world. More importantly, it’s a time when we do something about it: Operation Christmas Child. The Christmas Seal Campaign. And of course, the Christmas Food Drive here in Tumbler Ridge headed by the Family Assistance Program.

Last year we started our first Photos for Food Fundraiser to support this amazing cause. This year on November 12-14, Eye For Detail Photography will be repeating this event, and you can help: all you have to do is say cheese. For a minimum $30 cash donation, plus a non-perishable food donation, you can help support the Tumbler Ridge Family Assistance Program. As a thank you, Eye For Detail will provide you with a complimentary mini photo session, plus a free 8X10 print. Call 250-219-8215 or email support@eyefordetailphotos.com. (If you read the article in the paper recently, please note that the size of the free print was incorrect! It will be an 8X10.)

Fall Family Portrait Card Special

Yes, I know. It is September. But that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start thinking about Christmas. Winter comes early up north, and fall happens fast! So we blend the two in a one hour portrait session with 5X7 bifolded customized Christmas cards made from your favourite images. If you want to have these beautiful cares ready and in the mail in time for Christmas, now is the time to start thinking about getting your family portraits done.

And, as a way of encouraging our favouritest people in the world (that would be you, dear reader) to get your Christmas Portraits done in time for Christmas, we’re offering a special between now and Halloween.

Book an hour long studio session and get 25 custom designed christmas cards with envelopes for $150. Or, book a World is Our Studio session and get 25 custom cards included for $175. (Outdoor session include one rescheduling if weather doesn’t cooperate.)

Celebrating the Art of Photography

Eye for Detail Photography is going to be at the Where Art Thou? event on Tuesday, Sept. 7th from 3-9pm, at the Tumbler Ridge Community Centre. This is a wonderful event hosted by the Tumbler Ridge Arts Council where the community can come out and enjoy the works and skills and even some classes with the local art community of Tumbler Ridge. We invite you to join us there to celebrate art in all it’s forms!

We are offering a free five minute Facebook Profile Portraits for anyone who wants to freshen up their facebook profile picture with a professional portrait. We are also going to be doing a few short seminars on how to take better photographs, also free. If you’ve always wanted to know how to take a better self portrait, or why your pictures just aren’t turning out, you’ll want to show up. You can find us in Room 4.

Everyone participating in the seminars and photo sessions will have their name go into a draw for an hour long studio session… yes that’s right, more FREE stuff!

Come out, meet us, learn something, get free stuff. It’s that simple.
