My 11/17/10 post contains interview questions and answers that I provided for an upcoming article in the March/April issue of Self Employed Magazine. Please check out that post to learn more about myself and our business.
For the upcoming article, we recently had a photo shoot with a professional photographer from Portsmouth, NH. I figured that someone would stop by and take a couple photos of the store and the furniture, for the article. It wound up being much more than that. There was a crew of three, including the photographer, an assistant and an intern. The process lasted three hours, with photos outside, and in different parts of the gallery. They had all kinds of equipment. There were lights, computers, back ground materials, light sensors, and on and on. I have never done anything like that. The photographer would tell us to pose in certain ways and adjust us ever so slightly for the next shot. We stood outside with out coats in ridiculous temperatures to get the outdoor shots. It was really a fun time and very interesting to see how much goes into professional photos. Of course we haven't seen any of the pictures, so we are hoping that they choose some good ones, since it will be sent out to thousands of people. We shall see.
The photographer was Bill Truslow of Bill Truslow Photography, based in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. He was really nice to work with and very good at his profession. http://www.truslowphoto.com/
We hope that the article (and photos) comes out well. I will keep you posted and let you know how it goes.
