A little alter ego fun…

09-27-09

I finally decided to make a little time for myself and do something fun with a self portrait. I’ve admired the “alter-ego” type portraits for a while and decided to give it a quick try. We came up with the idea of my clean & corporate self playing a little poker against my gritty, thuggish self. LOL. My wife (and wonderful assistant) helped me get the shot set up and did the honors of taking the picture for me. It didn’t turn out too bad for a first attempt. I definitely plan on trying some different ideas and doing something a little more elaborate and creative in the future….Maybe even something I might offer to clients eventually.

A few more babies…

09-11-09

I have been slammed lately and have another busy weekend ahead. Just wanted to take a quick moment to post a few pics from some recent shoots. I had a chance to shoot a 1 month old and 3 month old twins.

It’s amazing how newborns make sleep look like the greatest thing in the world…



This is one of my favorite images I’ve taken this year.

My new logo !!

09-04-09

So I’ve been trying to find the time to come up with a different business logo that I like a little better than my old one. M. Clay digital Photography is preparing to celebrate it’s official 1 year anniversary and I figured a nice gift would be a brand makeover. Your brand can be a big part of your business….of course with photography, your images should be your cornerstone.

But anyway, I came up with a new logo that I absolutely love. I wanted something that would look more like a “signature” on my images than an actual company logo. I also wanted something that felt a little more classy. It also helped that my Photoshop skills have improved leaps and bounds over when I first started so this only took me a couple hours instead of a couple weeks like my first one. Here is my final product:

I’m giving it a test run on my site and very satisfied with it so far….I think it’s a keeper. So now on to getting new biz cards and other stationary.
