Hey gang!

I haven't posted here in "ages", when I can I'll tell some stories (and post some photos), but right now I want to post this note (PM me if you have a positive response):

I just got a question from, well, my ex-wife. She does "service" work for a local family and she says they are looking for a Seniors Portrait photographer.

Well, I'm not a "studio" photographer, have no studio lights/equipment, and have never done "formal" portrait shooting, seniors or otherwise, aside from a "TFP" shoot I did a couple weeks ago with a couple other photogs and seven models, it was outdoors and they were, well, dressed for a "role" and experienced in acting it out...

So, I told her "It ain't my thing", but told her I could ask fellow photogs!

So, they are in Vancouver, but someone in the Portland area experienced and willing to work with them?

Went over the mountains to shoot some pictures in the smoke from the forest fires.

This is a copy of a Facebook post I just made, you can PM me with questions or an "offer":

Hey, Facebook Friends!

As some of you know, I'm in the middle of a "life crisis"! I can no longer afford to live in the nice apartment I've lived in for the past six years.

Well, besides the trauma of just the thought of moving out of my home of six years, I'm also facing what is to me a major challenge, the need to sell of the majority of my furniture that I got new to fill this place with when I first moved in. I'm looking at just renting a room, a spare room, and with no place to put my furniture.

So, in discussing this with the apartment manager today, she graciously offered a couple spots where I/they could post flyers, with the idea that other residents who need/want furniture could call me and come and look, hopefully make a decent offer!

Well, despite the fact that I've been working with computers for, gosh, the past 25-30 years, I have no "graphics arts" skills, so I draw a blank when it comes to putting together a flyer!

So, I'm asking you, my friends, for a bit of help! If you know of, say, a "Photoshop Template", I mean the "Standard" Photoshop editor (I don't have Illustrator or any other graphics program aside from Windows Paint), well let me know! Or, if you think you could quickly toss something together, let me know, give me a (hopefully) reasonable estimate, and I could get you the info. I have a lot of items "on the block", too many to clutter a flyer with photos of them all, although I have one photo of my full-size sofa here on Facebook...

After that, then I'd email this lady the flyer and she'd print it and post it...

And then, unless I get "swarmed", the next step will be to post a "moving sail" ad on Craig's list, I just wanted to give the residents here the "first opportunity!

FYI, I have 'till the end of October to be out of here (I have to pay the October rent of $1250 at any rate).

Hey everyone, I knwo the weather is changing in the PNW :( and outdoor stuff is wrapping up. Whats everyones thoughts of some sort of indoor meetup/group shoot? Granted I have never attending anything like this but seams like the next best thing when the weather turns to crap outside.

I organized a calendar shoot a year and a half ago and was able to get 10 models (all but 2 had past experience) and two HMU's for nothing more then images for their port's. I am sure we could find a space or someone may have something .... anyways just tossing an idea out there that we can maybe build on and get something fun set up. Even if it cost a little for each photog that wants to attend.

The wife and I are taking a trip to Seattle and Portland this weekend. I know the weather isn't that great right now but I'm looking for ideas on what to shoot while I'm there and where to go. I'm mostly into wildlife stuff.

Based on the latest weather forecast, make sure to bring an underwater housing. It's going to be wet around here for the foreseeable future.

If you're prepared for the rain you can still get out and get some great shots, although it does make it more difficult.

Wet is the word, I was going to head out today and shoot some ducks/geese. It's been pouring all day.

Thanks for the tips. Coming from the desert I'm not sure I know what this rain stuff is that you all speak of :lol: I'm not afraid of a little water I stood for an hour in Florida in pouring rain to get an Osprey shot. I was just testing the water resistance of my 7D :lol: So I guess getting some Bald Eagles will be out of the question?

I visited the Butterfly area at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle, it was fun, I could spend a couple hours in there. Otherwise Portland is having tons of rain, like street flooding, down trees all over town. Be ready for lots of rain not just a little :)
