Sunny Distractions – Meet Ms. Borgelt!

_MG_9898brtI had the pleasure of spending an evening with my very busy friend Sarah.  Fresh in her twenties her schedule is filled with a full-time work, part-time school and whatever social she can manage between her hobbies.  She fit me in for a few hours between salon time and a date.

Sarah is a great friend I’m proud to have.  Smart and clever with manners and wisdom beyond her years.

I enjoy how she has kept her own style in tact in this time of hipster age.  1rt

Sarah exudes elegance even in her rare clumsy moments.

Importantly she is one of my lighting assistants and more importantly a photographer with Meeshi Sense Photography.  She is one of my few photographers on call to back me up on big sessions like weddings, events and big family sessions.

_MG_9910rt

 

Photography has been a hobby of Sarah’s since her teens.  A skill bestowed upon her from her father who is a strong enthusiast.

I hope to see her step up her skills and become a full time photographer though I think she might keep closer to her stage building skills.  Either way she has a bright future ahead of her.

Psychology for Photographers

Scott Kelby has been my guiding light for learning the photo part of my trade but he doesn’t really touch down on how to run your business.

There are plenty of resources online for photographers just starting out, but as I’ve said before and will continue to say, Psychology for Photographers is the best / most helpful blog around!

You can snap photo’s like the one above all day long, but if you don’t have some business savvy or marketing tricks under your sleeve your business won’t get very far.  While you’re waiting for the next semester to start to pick up that business class at a local community college or online, check yourself in at Psychology for Photographers.  I promise you will never regret book marking her blog or subscribing to email updates.  This is the most valuable tool I can pass on for the business aspect of photography, so cherish it, stalk it and absorb her lessons.  Stay tuned for more helpful tips, education, hot leads and more!

More Progress.

It has been a very busy week in the MSP office.  So busy with advertising designs for my contract job that I haven’t had time to go through and edit all the park photo’s yet.  I would like to get them up as soon as possible but as their just leisure photo’s I can’t put work off to get to them.

So anyone who was photographed by me last monday night at the Brighton Millpond, please be patient.  If you would like notification as to when they are posted so you don’t have to keep visiting here, please comment on this entry or email me – meeshi.sense.pho@gmail.com

I have made a little progress in between ad work.  Two samples below.  Thank you for tuning in, keep returning for more new’s, photo’s, tips and more.

 

Monday Evening at the Brighton Mill-Pond.

A sneak peak at a few of the candids captured yesterday at the park.

If you’re one of the people I or my associate spoke with yesterday please be patient, your photo’s will be posted by the end of the week.  Thank you for your presence in my work.

Lastly an FB Time Line cover I made for my MSP Fan Page.
