The last 4 weeks have been pretty difficult for me without my camera! I have been watching boatloads of youtube tutorials and reading books on "Finding my style," and and how to "make it" in photography. All the while, I was dreading not being able to finance the expensive repair on my body and lens. However....
ding ding ding! Thanks to several awesome clients, I was able to finace the repair through holiday Gift Card sales. I discounted the regular session price from $200 for a 1 hour session for a special $175 rate for gift cards!
Now, because that fundraiser was so successful, I'm going to extend that discounted rate until Jan 24th, 2017 (4 weeks, how long I've been waiting for my gear to be repaired!).
You'll get a gift card (physical or digital) to use for yourself or to give as a gift. This gift card will lock in the 2016 rate (plus that nifty discount) for any session scheduled from March 2017 through December 2017. Valid on portraits for seniors, family, children (over 9 months old) and pets. Outdoor or on location. Mention SHORTHIATUS for your discount gift card!
In other news, I've had several requests for a TUMBLR account. So... I made one! www.elocinphotographic.tumblr.com. I'll be able to post the more implied, less family friendly work on that site as well as some exclusive imagery. So, be sure to follow me there too!
In other, OTHER, news, I am also going to be picking back up the Patreon account in the new year. There is going to be TONS of reasons to join as a patron. There will be different tiers of involvement and different rewards for those. I'm still in the planning stages for the tiers, so your input can be taken into account! They may include weekly google hangouts, prints, ability to tag along on a trade shoot, one-on-one education, subscriber early access behind the scenes, and exclusive content.
