Saturday: Sweet F.A. Fashion Show! – event and fashion photography in Portland, OR

Just popping in to let y’all know that tomorrow night is the Sweet F.A. Fashion Show! It’s been called “the best fashion show in Portland,” by more than a few, and this round of fashions should be awesome! The lineup includes some of our favorite clients and collaborators, like Alyson Clair, Carolyn Hart, and Adam Andreas, and we’ve gotten a peek at just a few of their new garments for spring and summer… they’re definitely not to be missed!

Doors open at 8pm, with the runway show at 9pm and dancing afterwards… we hope to see you at The Fez tomorrow night!

This Saturday: Christmas in October! – art, event, and portrait photography in Portland, Oregon

Yeah, we know it’s not even Halloween yet, but if you are looking to get a jump on your holiday shopping and support the local economy, join us for Christmas in October: a Freedom and Free Enterprise Fair. We’ll be there, along with dozens of local businesses and craftspeople, to tell you about what we’re doing, and why we love doing it.

People who visit us will get an event-only special, and you’ll also have a chance to win a portrait mini-session package with us, valued at $100! All of the vendors are giving away prizes, too, so you could win something awesome just for stopping by. AND, we’ll also have some of our award-winning artistic prints up for grabs, and we’ll be debuting our State Fair 2009 postcards! Even if you just want to ask us a few questions about how our sessions work, make plans to drop in on the Fair this Saturday. We’d love to meet you!

A People’s Choice Winner! – artistic photography in Portland, OR

We just got some good news yesterday: the folks at the Oregon State Fair called to let us know that Ben is the 2009 People’s Choice Winner in the Fair’s Oregon Salon of Photography! This was our first year entering the competition, so we were already happy to have so many of our entries accepted for exhibition, but winning the People’s Choice award is an incredibly exciting honor!

We also have Ben’s winning piece, “Ethereal Sea,” along with some of our other photos exhibited at this year’s State Fair, available for purchase at our new Etsy shop! Our art photos are available in 12″x18″ prints, ready to spruce up any bare walls you might in your home or office.

On Exhibit at the Oregon State Fair! – artistic photography in Portland, OR

This year, we’ve been able to explore our artistic sides more, and found just enough time to enter our first photography competitions, the Oregon Salon of Photography and the International Exhibition of Photography, both presented by the 2009 Oregon State Fair.

Sarah entered 3 photos from her recent China trip into each competition, 2 into the Color division and 1 in Black-and-White. Ben entered the maximum in each competition, 3 Color and 3 B/W in the Oregon Salon of Photography, and 4 Color and 4 B/W in the International Exhibition. The competition was fierce, and only 1/3rd of the photos submitted were accepted for exhibition. Fortunately, all but one of our submitted images were accepted for display (and Ben thinks the judges are crazy for that one…), eight into the Oregon Salon and 4 into the more difficult International Exhibition. One even earned an Honorable Mention in the International Exhibition!

We look forward to sharing our work in many more competitions in the future, and encourage all of you to go to the exhibits, and enjoy the excellent works by us, and by the other talented artists who were accepted! They’ll be on exhibit at the Oregon State Fair in Salem, from August 28th through September 7th.

Fine Art Prints at Heritage Gallery

If you have an art itch that needs to be scratched, be sure to pay a visit to our friends at the Heritage Gallery in Vancouver. Ben has been at play with our upgraded wide angle lens for many a late evening, and has recently debuted a series of fine art prints featuring his favorite nighttime views of Portland’s skyline and neighboring scenic spots! This is just one of the prints on display at the gallery, so if you’re looking for something a little different to spice up your walls, stop in and take a look.

The Heritage Gallery also does a great job with custom fine art framing and mounting, using top-quality preservation materials, and always showing a great eye for quality. We’re consistently pleased with the work they do for us, so it just made sense to have them as one of our partners! If you’re interested in framing and mounting for your keepsake portraits, we’d be more than happy to connect you with their fantastic work.
