I haven't blogged too much lately so I figured I'd touch base and give an update on me and what what's goin' on.
I'm heading to Cuba to shoot Amanda & Colin's wedding in Varadero this week. I'm pretty fired up to make our way into Havana for some very cool bridal stuff. I'm also pretty excited that my 7 month pregnant wife, Jilly and our 3 year old daughter is coming. It's our last family outing until our son is born in mid-April. Then I'm off to Punta Cana for another wedding with a Newfoundland & Labrador crowd.
Speaking of weddings, I have 22 weddings booked for 2011 so I'm going to be a busy fella this summer and will shortly cap my weddings so that I don't stretch myself too thin and can better focus on my existing clients. However, I do still have a few key Saturdays available this summer in case you are here looking into me shooting your wedding. Some available dates are June 11, July 2, August 6, Sept 17, Sept 24 & October 1st.
I'm plugging and chugging through the coffee table books and slowly getting through all 16 of them. I'm real pleased how they turning out and will have a "Best of 2010" book pages blog post later in the Spring. My next three books are Jenny & Nick, Michelle & Mike and Rochelle & Kurt - then I will be into October weddings. I know people are always anxious to see their books but with the wedding season ending in November and then right into Christmas shoots, I really don't get to them until mid-January. It's in my FAQ and contract that they won't be ready for Christmas (I got three done before Christmas) but I'd like to figure out a way to put together these books earlier in the year. Maybe I should just greatly raise the price on them so I have fewer orders. Nah.
So, I built a large photography studio two years ago and designed it in such a way that it would be very 'kid-friendly' but I really haven't marketed that genre at all. However, 2011 will be a different year for me. Now in my 5th year of full-time photography, I believe it's time to focus my energy into the areas I love and chose a clear direction of my work. Weddings are very special to me as I love the power and emotion of the day and that it is me contributing to these memories never being forgotten. But I also feel a great pull toward shooting newborns and young children. I've had the privilege to document a few births, photograph many infants here in the studio and now that I have a child of my own (and one on the way) and I'v come to realize I love everything about newborn photography. It really brings me a lot of joy to provide new parents with beautiful images of their little ones. While in Cuba, I'm having further work done to my studio that will better accommodate this market and in 2011 you will see more promotion and many more blog posts geared toward newborn photography. I'll still shoot all the other types of photography but I don't want to be all things to all people. I'll focus on these and be great at these.
Again, sorry I haven't posted much lately. I know there are many who check often looking for recent work from me but with a wife who's 'nesting' (and has me cutting, hammering and painting every week) and with 16 large Wedding Coffee Table Books to do, my attention has been focused elsewhere.
Talk to you soon.
Sarah: Hi Trevor, I found your blog/website through the tiny light foundation! So excited that you are involved in that amazing concept! Have a great trip to Cuba! :-) (missed you at b'ball on Tuesday! LOL) on 02.12.11
Isaac and his mom, Kate, popped over on Halloween for some Trick-or-Treating and we thought it would be nice to get a quick shot in the studio. Who would have thought that quick shot would have wound up on the 2010 HRM Calendar (His dad is a Fire Chief).
...Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to do it. The first photo was taken October 13th, 2009 at about 2:00am while I was staying overnight at Melanie & Tyler's cottage for their engagement shoot. This was taken during the Perseid Meteor Shower and the glow over the Island is from the lights of Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. The second was shot during Mandi & Mark's engagement shoot. It's a pretty authentic 'Autumn in Nova Scotia' photograph.
Pat Juchli loves to waterski - and he's very good. And I love photographing Pat waterskiing. Occasionally, he will call me at 6am and say, "The water is calm - let's go waterskiing". He even built a brace that pops up above the 450hp big block engine so that I may stand and photograph above the spray of the boat. These were all shot on Lake William in Waverley, Nova Scotia.
These are my brothers, sister and their significant others.
