Just had to post...

I was editing some images of one of our senior reps and I just had to post this image. Straight out of the camera. One white lightning 1800 popped into an 18" umbrella, great light. I just love it.

We've had great response from our Lowell peeps, we try to limit our reps to around 5 per school but we've set our Lowell limit to 10 so if your interested don't fret, we still have room for you! Drop us an email or call for all of the details.

Great Show!

We did our first show and the response was awesome!!

We talked with a lot of our current clients and met a lot of new clients as well.

People loved the fact that we had BIG prints of our images. There's nothing quite like razor sharp eyelashes on a 30"x40" print. We displayed a little bit of everything. One of the favorites was the gallery wrap canvas art, they were a big hit.

I can't wait til the next show!!

Busy busy busy week!!!

Oh what a week!

Between our never ending marketing, sessions, order fulfillment and submitting some images for a magazine (more to be announced on this in the next few months) it's been a bit crazy!

Friday night we shot a prom which was a riot! It made me wish I was back in high school again.

Saturday we have a local show we're going to be at, should be a blast!

That's it for now.

Saturday Senior Session

Had a great senior session this past Saturday! Trevor did a great job, he's a solid guy with a great head on his shoulders. He is definitely going places and has a bright future ahead of him!!

Here are a few of our favorite pics:

We like to think outside the box at CLICK. "something different, something fresh, something new" is our motto here at and CLICK photographic. We resist the temptation to just turn the camera on a 45 degree angle and start shootin', that's old and tired (not to mention it looks pretty funny when used on newborn, kids, weddings, seniors, families... basically every type of session, sparingly is better!).

We've got a cool new promo coming up that has something for everyone. Check back in a couple days to see what our latest offering is!!

Rock On,

Another Two Photo Handbags Delivered!

These two bags were delivered this week. A B&W Candie bag and a Julia bag. The proud new owners were ecstatic to say the least!!!

We also received an interesting call from a new client who booked a handbag session yesterday. Apparently there are some other local photographers who are displaying photo handbags that they didn't even shoot!

We are a VERY disapointed to hear this. Not only is this an example of COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT, it's kind of deceptive to lead clients to believe that their studio shot it when it was actually another photographer. Ouch, smells like a lawsuit.

We're here to let you know that EVERYTHING on the CLICK website was shot by us!! No stock photos, other photographers images, etc. We even design and produce our own website, every pixel!!!

On a more happy note, we have a TON of new things, events and top secret stuff coming up!! Stop back soon to find out what all the excitement is about!

That's it for now,

Oh yeah, here are the images of the bags We shot.

30 minutes or the pizza is free, well almost...

What a change from last Thursday!

A week ago it was 5 sessions for the day, today it was 6 deliveries for the day (and we ain't talkin bout pizza).

Wednesday I picked up 3 proof mags, two print orders and a photo handbag, called the clients to let them know they were in and ready for pick up and offered to drop them off Thursday if they were interested. An overwhelming yes from all! We had already planned on running around town today so why not save them the trip!

As I made the rounds from Hudsonville to Grandville to Jenison, to Allendale to Lowell to Grand Rapids back to Jenison it hit me (and I'm not talking about how I should have planned my route better)! We might just add a 1 day a week driver for deliveries!

It's not the first time we've done deliveries. We have clients who live in Rockford but work in GR so if we're headed to the downtown studio we'll drop the order off at their work. We have a lot of moms with two or more children and packing them all up for a quick pick up is a major ordeal (I know this first hand, I have a three month old baby).

It's nothing major, just another one of the things we do for our clients. We see a need, we fulfill it.

Long week!!

Wow, that was one long week. Between updating the website, sessions, marketing stuff and family time...I'll just sleep on the weekend! Yes, my week was really that busy. I got back from WPPI last Fri and my luggage is still sitting by the back door. Hopefully I'll unpack this weekend.

Another great newborn session today, here's the fave:

That's it for now.

WPPI was a Blast!

Forgot to post about the Great time we had at WPPI in Vegas!

Some of the highlights include:

Found a bunch of great new album options, we're going to offer over 12 different brands of wedding albums. You choose the style that you like!

Great new packaging suppliers.

Got to hang out and chat with a lot of great people! Steve Sheanin (the founder of WPPI), George Varanakis, Mani, Greg Schrader and a bunch of Australian photographers with a lot of talent!

Got to check out the Ansel Adams : America exhibit, it was right across the street at the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art. It was incredible!!

Got to eat at Smith & Wollensky, great steak!

Checked out the new Canon EOS-1D Mark III, very nice!

All in all it was a riot, but it's good to be back home!

That's it for now, I have website images to update! Not to mention Monday is our "Think Spring" kickoff so it's going to be a long week!
