I need your help!

I need your  help.  See – I’m really indecisive – I guess it’s part of being a Libra.

I’m entering the Photolife Emerging Photographer of the Year contest – open to Canadian photographers only.  I’m going to need to submit 3 of my photographs for judging – they of course, should be my “best of the best”.

I’m thinking of using my photograph “Trust – Split Toned” as one of my submissions.  “Frostflowers” has gotten good reviews as well, it’s my photograph that has been published in Snapixel Magazine.

I’m torn for what my 3rd choice should be.  Any suggestions?

While you’re at it, feel free to suggest any of my other photographs for my first two submissions as well – these are not set in stone yet.

~Cheers!

Trust and Frostflower

Coming Soon

Welcome!

I’m glad you’re here.  I’ve got some news to share, so read along and let me know what you think.

I’ve been sorting through my images, trying to come up with the ones that I want to put up on my portfolio.  I don’t want ones that are too old, as I don’t want to “undersell” myself, nor do I only want to post the best, as I don’t want to “oversell” myself.

Accordingly, I think it’s best to let customers, visitors and fans choose which photos will make the cut.  I’m going to be sponsoring a contest on that topic in the coming weeks, with the prize yet to be decided, but probably an amazing print, either gallery mounted or framed. (Let me know what you think the prize or prizes should be.)

This weekend had a couple of great experiences.  On Saturday I photographed a couple of income properties for a local company.  Some shots are going to be for portfolio work, and some are going to be used for before/after comparisons.  On Sunday I did my first day of subcontracting to Northern Persona Photography – for an epic day!  We did 14 half hour photo shoots on Sunday.  Almost all of them were 1/2 hour, 2 took a whole hour.  During the day we only got off schedule 10 minutes by the end, which is pretty darn good.  Each one was exciting and different – the light was horrible, stark and bright nearly all day, but with some ingenuity, a reflector and some persistence we managed to get Tineke some great shots – I’m sure making lots of clients happy.

Lots of editing to do this week  – So I should get to it.  Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy what’s here so far.

Further Along

Just updated my front slideshow – images are now centering correctly on the browsers I’ve tested. (Firefox and IE).

New gallery images are up in the galleries. Layout is a bit rough at the moment, that will be fixed soon.

I will be announcing a contest on my facebook page soon. You can find the link in my publications section or over on the right hand sidebar – you can click the little “f” and it should take you right there.

Feel free to comment on this post and let me know what you think. I haven’t tested the commenting feature yet. You could be the first.

New Website Launched!

If you’re reading this, things are moving along in the correct direction.

It should be Wednesday, the 21st of April.  You should be reading this at jcphoto.com, or possibly, jeffclossphotography.com or even, jclossphotography.com

This is the first post, in the page called updates.  It is the first of many posts which will keep you up to date on what I have going on, what I’ve had published and where my photographs are being used.

Welcome to the site.  I’m glad to have you here.

Stick with me through a few growing pains and stay to see what this becomes.
