The 5th annual Charitable shoot… will look something like the pictures below
Did you come from the Newsletter
This is the 5th annual charitable shoot and while I’m sad I didn’t have time to do it earlier while it was warmer that’s just how it goes.
But the new format should help with that.
We’re taking several groups for each slot and rotating shots for each location. Meaning you can keep warm in between.
This also means you’ll have more locations with unique lighting setups.
It will also have the feel of a group party. haha
DUNES as SELECTED BY FRIENDS
It was a vote between Sand Dunes and Salt Flats and the Dunes won out. Almost 2 to 1 surprisingly.
So December 10th I’ll be there for most of the day taking pictures of people for the 5th annual charitable shoot.
Should be awesome since it’s a FULL MOON that evening
It’s a popular place for people to enjoy the holiday mood.
And the lights in the background are awesome backgrounds
I will provide shoots that don’t include the temple for any non-LDS individuals as well.
To look at availability and check to see times and places Go to this Calender
when I book you in I will add your name or families name in that shoots Details (on the calender) double check you’re on that.
All times are approx and may last longer than stated
I will take small groups of 4-5 and if they are larger I might take a group less
Day 1 and 2 – Christmas Lights – Dec 2nd (Friday) and Thursday December 8th (same schedules)
Shoot 1 – (3pm) Daytime shots – (Suitable for non-lds)
Shoot 2 – (4:30) Sunset-Twilight W/ temple (Non-lds might want to skip)
Shoot 3 – (6:30) Nigh Lights (Suitable for non-lds)
Day 3 – The Dunes Dec 10th
Shoot 1 – (3pm) Late Afternoon at the Dunes (You are welcome to go into town and have dinner and come back later that night)
Shoot 2 – (4:20 pm-5:40) Sunset and twilight (with a special apperance by a full moon… stay a little longer if you’d like)
Shoot 3 – (6:30 – 8pm) Full Moon and Night skies and stars
(long exposure pictures with fancy light setups. Not a lot of pictures but they’ll be cool… this is the Full Moon day it rises at 5:25 so come early if you can)
About the Format
In the past I’ve given 15 minutes to each group.
This year I will book longer sessions and for each set up I will photograph each group.
This way we get more locations and it’s a bit less running around for me.
I also get to focus on more unique lighting setups
So this is why I’ll have abt 4 groups per time slot.
While it’s not your turn I suggest staying warm and getting to know the other people you’ll be grouped with.
To Select/Book your slot
I will book by email. firstname.lastname@example.org
Those wanting a slot should send at least their top 2 choices (in order) and then check the calender to see if they’re listed in the details of the shoot they wanted. or maybe they’ll even get an email if i’m feeling over-achiever
Example: A: Day 1 shoot 2 … B: Day 2 shoot 3
TELL ME: If you are on the Newsletter … so I don’t have to go looking through the names. I should remember who all was at the gallery, but you can do the same.
Provide Phone # and how many will be in the shoot
Will go first to those that came to the Jarvie Gallery opening then next to those on the Newsletter
If you didn’t do either of the two and for some strange reason still don’t want to do the newsletter and select the section about future photoshoot specials like this one.
Then send an email anyway and if there is still space I’ll see what I can do.
LOCATION – HOW TO FIND ME
The Dunes are a 90 minute drive south of Provo toward Delta Utah
It’s a abt $5 entry fee into the dunes… bring cash.
The dunes are one of my favorite places to shoot and it’s even more exciting it’s full moon.
Here’s the GoogleMap – http://g.co/maps/3whuj
That end point is the exact parking lot I will be parked in.
I will probably be at my car or up the small hill on the west side of the parking lot
If you’re late just Go up the small hill and look around… we shouldn’t be too far away.
Again if you see my car you know you’re in the right place
Temple Square -
I won’t bother with a Map you better know how to get there.
We will meet in the lobby of the JSMB or right infront of the reflecting pool (possibly on the grass)
Just look in those two locations it’s simple.
I’m the one with lots of camera stuff including lightstands and small soft boxes and flashes and a big camera. I also look like myself. I’ll be wearing black. There might even be a small group of people around me looking like they need pictures.
AFTER THE SHOOT – Prints etc
I’m doing these shoots for free but I’m not giving you free stuff afterwards
Well actually you can use any of the pictures with the watermark for FREE online for any non-commercial purpose… Facebook Google+ blogs etc… all good, all free.
But as for prints… You can buy the prints dangit… haha
Or purchase the files online to make your own prints.
I’m not giving away the rights to the pictures.
I know holiday cards are popular and people often buy the 4mp version for $15 and then take the file to costco and make small prints. Perfectly OK with me.
I will specially price the usage rights to the entire gallery … I’ll figure out the low-average of pics I take and price accordingly.
In order to get the shoots out fast… I will do my best to find the absolute best and work on just those pictures. My best will have to be good enough for you.
This means if you’ve shot with me before don’t expect a billion pictures like last time.
You might not like the time i’d be willing to give your group … I’m gonna treat you just like the other groups. If you’re ok with mostly small subgroups or individuals that’s cool. But organizing a large group takes time and is hard on my lighting setup when I want to go fast. You might get one large group and I make no promises it will be awesome. It’s a 90 minutes drive to the dunes for that gamble and temple square is a hard place to do a large group this time of year.
Clarification: A family with a bunch of kids is not a large group… it’s when the kids start having kids as well.
I openly welcome decent sized groups of individuals as I’ll get to focus on the individuals for most of the shots.
Roommate pictures: I specially welcome groups of roomates they have tended to be the most fun.
Individuals: Are the easiest shoots for me and therefore the funnest
If you’re a difficult person to work with please don’t come I don’t want to hate doing these free shoots. Stop expecting the world for free.
Photoshop: If you want to photoshop and swap heads or something like that… I’ll let you do that or forward you to my contact. Unless of course you purchase a large picture then I’ll hook you up.
Schedule your very own shoot.
$300 for family pics (buy rights and prints through me) $600 with rights/files
There’s no time limit and we can go to wherever you’d like.
- Bring a big coat you can remove for pictures.
- Warm shoes
- Toe and hand warmers (i might have some)
- Hot chocolate with extra for me
- They sell hot chocolate at temple square right outside the JSMB
- Don’t be a whimp!
