To Competition We Go!

We are off to participate in the Professional Photographers of America Northeast print competition!  Work will be judged on the elements of print competition and awarded accordingly.  

I will have 4 pictures there as will my daugter Emma.  (Emma's are part of Next Generation so hers are not official.)  I hope all of the prints do well and hope all my friends who are photographers do well and have a great time.


Easter Wishes

Just wishing everyone a happy and safe Easter holiday.  

Look for this label

We are often told to "look for a label".  Be it a designer or brand it's hopefully the mark of quality and responsible business.  

In photography look for the CPP label.  It guarentees the photographer you selected knows their stuff!  It also makes sure that the business practices they follow meet industry guidelines. 

United Way Matters

Once again I was priviledged to photograph the United Way's Annual Meeting.  It was nice to see so many people who care about Jackson and it's residents and who are willing to help.  

Studio One is proud to be part of being involved in the community.  

Commercial Photography

You may not know this but Studio One offers quality commercail photography in the Jackson area.  Not everyone can do this, you must have knowledge, skill and gear.  It also helps to have Studio One's master photographer Kurt Robertson.

Creativity and your portraits

Creativity is a vague concept.  One persons art is another's abomination.  It's difficult to know what will last and be valuable in 10, 20, or 30 years.  Will you wear the same clothes or have your hairstyle the same?

Studio One uses time honored techniques that are not a fad but a really well crafted representation of you at your best.  Fashions change but light doesn't.  Color harmony doesn't.  Posing that flatters you doesn't.  

Studio One also prints your order on the finest materials so they will last.  Isn't that why we do senior portraits in the first place?  

Call 517-782-3974 to schedule a free consultation to discuss what your senior portrait wish list is all about.

See the Difference

The following is an exerpt from the choosing your photographer see the difference website.  My answers are put in after the questions.

They say it takes 10,000 hours of experience for someone to become a master of their craft/art, so ask how much experience the photographer has.  Kurt has 31 years of experience.  Be sure to ask to see an extensive portfolio of their work. Very extensive portfolio.  Kurt has been asked to speak at the national SPI convention.  Do they have a degree in photography? Kurt has 2 and is working on a 3rd.   Are they certified?  Yup, in fact Kurt proctors the certification exam.   Are they a member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America)?  Yes he is!  PPA photographers abide by a strict code of ethics and have unique skills and training in the artistry and technology of creating beautiful images that will reflect your unique personality and talents.

Don't settle for less than your best.  Call Studio One at 517-782-3974 today!
