July 2009 Newsletter - ColdSnap Photography

July 2009 Newsletter

Change is the only constant in life.
Those of you who know me and know ColdSnap may not readily think of portrait photography when you think of me or ColdSnap Photography. Those of you who know me really well will know that I have my photographic roots in photographing people. I Hubert Humphrey Funeralgraduated from the University of Minnesota, University Without Walls Program (I was much too independent to complete a conventional degree program-I wonder where my daughters get their independent streak…) with a degree in “Documentary Photography of American Culture.” The attached photo is from Hubert Humphrey’s Funeral in 1977 which I covered for the school newspaper at North Hennepin Community College. This photo won “Best Spot News Photo of the Year ” for Minnesota College Newspapers.

ColdSnap Photography is proud to announce the expansion of their services and facilities. In August of 2009 ColdSnap will move its office and classroom into the space next door to Waterfront Gallery. This new storefront will house our classroom, offices, and client reception area. ColdSnap Photography is now offering Family and Senior Portraiture. In addition I am in the process of renovating my old studio space located up Highway Three. By August I expect to have a fully functioning portrait studio at that location.

ColdSnap Photography will continue to offer great photographic workshops in the lab and on location. I am in the process of developing the 2010 workshop offerings. Several of these workshops will be specific to photographing people.

This month’s newsletter includes an article on photographing people in landscape, and using or not using printer profiles.
