Kennett High School Senior Portrait Session With Maddy | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

Kennett High School Senior Portrait Session With Maddy | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

Last week, I met with Maddy and her aunt, to create some senior photos, as well as capturing a memory of this time in her life. I had never met Maddy until the day the shoot, and we began at her family home. We used the tall grass next to her home to capture the first few photos. Then we moved to some colored leaves to capture the beautiful fall color. In just a short time, we moved on to my property just down the road from her home. I like to toss a cool chair in a nature environment and use that as a added prop for some shots. I get a lot of comments about my chair photos and they have become one of my “signature shots.” When we were done with the chair shots, we set up on a nearby stone wall. I had her aunt, Lee, hold a light for me to take a few head shots. It is always nice to involve the teens family in the shoot. It makes for a very fun experience. Thanks, Leigh for all of your help! Once home, I loaded the session into my computer and went to work in Lightroom (a popular photo editing software.) I aim for between 30-40 finished edited portraits and I ended up delivering sixty two images, when all the photos were done. Maddy, I hope your final year of school is the best you can make it! Good luck as you head off in to the world.

Lake Ossipee Senior Portraits | Camp Calumet Photo Session | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

Lake Ossipee Senior Portraits | Camp Calumet Photo Session | New Hampshire Photographers Blog

New Hampshire Wedding Photographers Blog: 199

Traveling for things you want is a big part of life, for most people. Today, a mother and daughter drove four hours from Connecticut to to meet me in New Hampshire, to create senior portraits. Emma, the daughter, wanted to have her photos done in a very special place, from her childhood and teens years. She not only attended Camp Calumet, in Ossipee, New Hampshire, as a girl, but then returned as a teen to work at the camp as a lifeguard. Not only was the location a place filled with childhood memories, but it was also breathtakingly beautiful! There were had so many spots to shoot from. Ossipee lake with the mountains in the background. We had a forest full of colored leaves and an adorable wooden bridge with a dry river under it, to choose from for photos. She really wanted a photo on the lifeguard stand, where she worked and created so many memories.  As we made photo memories of this time in her life, I could tell that it was truly bittersweet for Emma and her mother. I felt honored to hold the space for such powerful emotions. I was hoping to not only capture the beauty of the area, but also capture the feelings of joy and nostalgia of the experience of her returning there. I loved Emma’s ideas and the props she brought, such as a beloved teddy bear from her childhood. She also brought some sheet music that she wanted in a photo with or laying sheet music on the grass to be photographed with. This photo shoot with Emma and her mother truly moved me. It was such a special place, because Emma felt so happy revisiting such a special place. The photo shoot, in itself, was a new and powerful memory for Emma and her mother. It was such an honor to capture this moment in time of growing up and moving forward and letting go. It was not only a photo shoot. It was a rite of passage and one that I will never forget facilitating for this beautiful family.

Here is a sneak peak of just a few photos from Emma’s day. Thank you, Emma and Jean. I hope the day was just as special for you as it was for me.

If you have a senior who needs their portraits done, contact me to ensure you are put on my fall schedule! Don’t miss this short window of time with the beautiful foliage.
Thank you for reading, Joe

Incorporating Family History Into Wedding Photos | Family Heirlooms As Wedding Photo Props

PHOTO OF THE DAY – Family Heirlooms As Wedding Photo Props

In todays post I have used two wedding Photos. I know my Photo of The Day posts are most times just one photo with a bit on how I shot it or what the day was about when I took the photo. I thought that to really make my point I needed these two photos to tell my story.

This wedding was in the City of Berlin , NH. It is a small city more like a large town. A 100 years ago the city of Berlin was a mill town. Over the years the mills have closed down and with it many of the towns income creating jobs have also been washed away with the mills.

I have always loved props in photos. When they are good and they are relevant to the photo of the subject. This is not exception. I was meeting the bride at her moms home before the wedding. I knew this would be a good place to find family history to include in some photos. I was not sure how when I got to the home, but as soon as I saw the spoons I knew it was meant to be.

ABOUT THESE PHOTOS:

So what better way to show off the family connection the history the love this family had for each other then with this great wall display? This display of baby spoons was very detailed. It had small spoons all engraved with the child’s name for all 13 kids, that is right 13. This bride was the youngest of the 13 and was on the way to start her own family. I had first thought I would hang the shoes from this and capture the silver of all the spoons and the shoes together. I think it works very well. It tells a story for all that see. It for sure will create emotion to the family when they see it. So then I thought I would add the rings to the brides spoon in some way. I though I might put the rings into the spoon or on the stem, but nothing looked as nice together as the rings resting on the spoon like in the second photo. I had shot a few photos of the rings then removed the spiders web from the wooden rack. I really like the way it looked with the web. So I edited it and included it in there wedding photos. I edited the first photo with a more vintage look using a bit of a matted look to finish it off. The second photo is a basic black and white with a high clarity to bring out some of the finer details.

WALKING ON WATER

WALKING ON WATER

PHOTO OF THE DAY- WALKING ON WATER

Not sure I need to even say anything about this one. I will just add this is a great little walking trail that starts in a parking lot and climbs this great New Hampshire Peak. This is Willey Pond located in Crawford Notch State Park in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. I was on a trip over the Notch this day so I did not hike the trail but will return to capture a photo form the top of this landmark. You can bet that photo of these great pond will be coming form this place soon. Thanks again for check out my page. If you have a comment or just want to say hi. Leave me a comment below.

ABOUT THIS PHOTO: Taken from the bridge I set up on the handrail to take a 3 shot braked HDR photo. I made sure I had the reflection lined up to be the same space as the sky was above the mountain top. That is a good tip when capturing a reflection photo. Leave the same space above as below. I wanted the bridge to be a leading line into the photo. SO it makes your eye crawl the photo looking for the next item of interest and drawing you in. Does it make you wonder what is in the woods at the end?

New Life New Day ~ By New Hampshire Newborn Photographers Joe & Dayna Martin

New Life New Day ~ By New Hampshire Newborn Photographers Joe & Dayna Martin

 

Our latest Newborn Sparkle Session was perfect! Little Jantabi lived up to the African meaning of her name, “Sunshine.” She slept through the entire session, only waking to nurse a few times and  then she fell fast asleep again.  At just seven days old, she was the perfect age for a newborn photography session. We have known her Mom, Amy, for many years. It was a pleasure to not only meet this little ray of sunshine, but also Jantabi’s father.  They opened their home to us and helped us turn their living room into a temporary studio.  With Reggae music playing quietly in the background, their whole home was filled with a loving, relaxed energy. We used some of the beautifully patterned fabric that Amy brought home from their last trip to Africa.  It was so nice to include some of the family items that have special meaning to them. Personalizing Newborn Sparkle Sessions are important to us to not only honor the unique child, but the family, culture and history as well.  It meant a lot to us to work with the family to co-create such a special experience with photos that are already being shared all over the world.

We are looking forward to our next newborn session already! Bring this unique service to our area means so much to me and my wife. If you are interested in learning more about our Newborn Sparkle Session, please check out our newborn photography page.  Or contact us today.

Your History; Your Story: The Importance of Your Wedding Photography Album

Your History; Your Story: The Importance of Your Wedding Photography Album

 

Wedding photography at a New Hampshire

“I do” is heard at this wedding.

After this long cold winter, we long for a hot, sunny day. Let’s hope we get a lot of them, and soon! This might have been the longest coldest winter in the U.S. in a long time.  As this wedding season approaches we are reminded how short that season truly is here in New Hampshire and all of New England.  As a photographer, we look forward to it and wish that wedding season could last forever!

Let me offer  what may be a new point of view on the subject of wedding photography. Long after the guest has returned home and the reception hall has been cleaned and set for the next event, and long after you have returned from your honeymoon and all the cake is gone what will be left? What will be left is the memories of your special day! With high quality wedding photography your memories will come flooding back in a moment when you return to look through your photos. If you every want to return to the feeling of the moment you only need to grab a hot beverage and a comfy chair with your spouse and smile together as you revisit your special day. Your wedding album will provide you with a birds eye view of your wedding day.  Showing the moments that you may have missed, relatives that may have passed since that day, it may bring you even closer to one that you only wished to be closer with.

Myself, I have two weddings on the books so far and a few more that are lining up in short order.  I feel that between weddings and family photo sessions this should be my busiest year yet. I am looking forward to getting to know all of my new friends that I will meet first as clients. There really is nothing like spending the day with a couple on the happiest day of their lives up until this point. If you think about it, what is better then getting married? The only thing that can top that is having children. For a wedding photographer to be there on one of this milestone days is unforgettable.  The couple is happy, the families are happy many of them meeting for the first or maybe just the second time. People come from far and wide to enjoy the day with their family. Many have not seen each other in years. It is our job as photographers to make this a top priority. In my mind it is just as important to make the memories last more then this one Saturday after noon. That is were a printed album comes in.  How many photos do you have of your grandparents? If you do you have any at all I am betting it is just one or two and they are small images that have not been well cared for. Have you ever seen a child going over photos from their own childhood? Many smiles and laughs and many questions and shared stories come from this experience. When you receive your wedding album full of page after page of rich beautiful photography it is sure to spark many conversations in the years to come.

Your wedding is a milestone in your history. It is an important chapter in your story that only a photo album could tell.
Contact me today so we can start the process of preserving and honoring your memories in the way that you deserve.  My prices are set to be affordable yet competitive in a market with a wide range of professional and amateur  photographers. Please see my wedding information page for more about what I can offer you.

What is a Photographer to Blog about?

What is a Photographer to Blog about?

 

Beautiful landscape print of a snowy rivers in New Hampshire

Snowing River in New Hampshire

Sure, I could blog about camera gear or my last family photo shoot. I want to offer more then pretty pictures or one family’s story. Plus there will always be that type of blog here and there. I want to be a bit different. I don’t want to give you what ever other photographer gives you. I want to share some of my experiences sure, but I am so much more than that.

Like most people I sit and think about a new blog post. After some time I would find a photo, write a one line back story about the photo and post. Well, that is not a post. In fact, it is almost nothing. It will not get me a better Google ranking. Google looks for new information within a page that contains between 300-2000 words or more. If you’re like me, once you get to a page and see that it has an overwhelming amount of text you do one of two things: You either close the page or you might scroll and scan the page for small lines of text that grab your eye, taking in just a small amount of the carefully crafted post. We all like to share our story to give tips, updates, a news story or better yet, show you what we had for lunch that day.

I want to keep you supplied with a post that is short and sweet, to the point and informational at the same time.  With every post I get a little clearer on what I would like to share and why I want to share it. At the same time, I am trying to become a better writer and better at typing. It is hard to type fast when you spend most of your time backspacing to remove that red line under your words. As I became more comfortable, more blog posts start forming in my head I have to start to write ideas in my phones’ notes and draft emails to myself.

Now what I am blogging about these days? Well, now that is it off season for outdoor photography in my area. At this point this it my only studio space. I am blogging about photography, about my business, and blog about a few product reviews on items I have bought this winter, just to fill in the slow shooting times with some content so Google does not forget about me.

As we close in on portrait and wedding session I will blog about shoots and post photos from them. At the same time, keeping true to my passion to share some knowledge along the way that I have picked up from others or as I try new things by pushing myself in new directions.

One thing to think about and understand is that we live in a ever-changing word. A world that did not have the iPad prior to 2010. A world where most everyone has a Smart Phone, even young children. We live in a world that camera phones are better then the high price digital cameras we lugged around a few years back. What’s next? We barely know what is happening now! One thing that we must adapt to is the fast-changing times and new ways to content with our clients to bring in new business. One thing that is in the now and we have to use to our advantage is the actual Smart Phones. We have to have our sites mobile ready to be view and navigate with ease. What I mean is with the iPhones, Siri and Google’s “search by voice” feature. We need to be ready and able to come up in a search by location and the field of work that we specialize in. Are you ready? Do you even know how to adjust your business to handle this in the best way? I may blog about it in the future once I have a better understanding on how we as photographers can benefit from this new way of internet search algorithms.

In closing, remember that everyone needs to add content to their site. You must blog to be found. Once you have been found in your area of expertise, you do have a bit of an upper hand and do not have to blog as much, but once you stop, the Google Gods will take notice. The guy/gal down the road, that has been working hard to take your place just might take it.

The Price we Pay.

The Price we Pay.

 

We as photographers hear statements from time to time, “How much does it cost to push a button?” or “I just need them for 6 hours, how could it cost that much for 6 hours of work?” or one of the best “anyone with a good camera can do it, why should we pay for someone to come do what my uncle can do?” The reasons are many, unless your uncle is a pro photographer.

For starters a photographer in most cases can get the job done. They know when to take a photo when to create a photo and if need be when to make a photo.  It is so much more then pointing a camera at a subject or near one and pushing a button. They say timing is everything. That is so very true when it comes to photography. The way a persons faces looks as they have their head tilted to the side is very different when they are looking up or down.  Know what looks good in the background or the foreground can also make a good photo an amazing one.

Now, I could talk about technique or style for days and days, but I think I will leave that for another post(s) yet to come. I would like to talk about the cost of the work that goes in to a photography business. What is the cost of doing business in this field? Well, it is much more then one must think. Just think for a minute about what it is that you do for work. Do you own your own business or are you in a management level job or one that affords you the privilege do seeing the cost to run that business? If so then you know that it takes some money to not only get the business up and running but takes a bit of money to keep the working coming in and going out.  Like any business a good size percentage of the money charged for a sale or job goes right back into the business.  For the sake of information I will give a small breakdown of what I feel are some of the biggest money hogs for a photographer and some of the smaller things that many people do not even think of when it comes to this line of work.

First off, as we all know, that big camera is not cheap and on top that a nice price can be had for even just one of the lenses used. Not to speak of the number of lenses needed to create a day of shooting for lets say a wedding or family portrait session. Just one nice lens can set a photographer back over $1000.00 and they have 3 more in their bag not only to create a different type of shot but as a backup. When you think about someone that might build houses for a living. You might not think past a few tools in a truck but for many of these people the tools they bring to a job site are just a small fraction of the tools they will need or may need to complete the job at hand. So we have covered the one essential item – the camera and lens and If I was to just toss a low number for a starting out photographer would easily reach over $3,000.00. (not including the back up camera and lens)

Now, lets talk lighting gear that may be needed in some venues and then we have gear bags, memory cards – lots of them! Then there is website hosting, prints ads, business cards, phone services to conduct the client calls. With all that said there is still more. What could be left you say? Well hours and hours of training that went into the skill of photography before they ever met the next client. In many cases schooling or hired training was paid for to gain the skills from others in the field. There is insurance to cover liabilities that could come up insurance on the camera gear too. Some maybe rent studio space and then have all that comes with running the space like electricity and heat. They have to have a working vehicle to get to venues in some cases these can be many miles form their home or studio. So you get the idea of all the ways your investment will be spent, but wait there is more? One of the biggest investments that a photographer has to make is in the computer and software that will be used to run the images through the editing and delivery process. Many have heard of photoshop. That one program alone can cost up to $600.00 now they do have newer more affordable ways of using photoshop but that comes with a monthly fee and needs to have a high speed internet connection to take full advantage of it.  Now, even after they have a fast computer with in most cases two or three running monitors to speed up the work flow, the time to edit can take hours and hours if not days or even a week. Storage of multiple copy’s of the images alone can take a few hours to occur and then the added cost of needing multiple hard drives or online storage clouds to hold all of the images. Now the real time has to be put in. When we return from a wedding of a shoot we have hours of work to do. In most cases if not all it takes many more hours to edit then it did to create the photo that have now just be moved to the computer.  Many passes over to pick the best set of images that can be provided. The more we work the better we are at not only this part of the trade but we are better at capturing the best images in the camera and will save time in the editing side.  Now some might say well then the more experienced shooters are making even more on a event? Well maybe they are. Should they be? They sure should be. I would expect to pay more for a builder with many more years of expertise on the subject then someone that has just bought their first hammer. I would hope that most would see this valuable trade as not only a skilled trade but something we work hard at and are passionate about.  Whether is it working on getting that perfect photo of your children or the bouquet being torn to pieces by some hungry bridesmaids, we are there for the client, from start to delivery, 100% of the time.

Do you have a grasp on some of the cost that are associated with owning and running a photography business and the hours of time put in not only at the wedding or shoot, but after? I am not writing this from a place of I told you so,  but a place of, now you know.  Thanks for reading my blog and please follow me on Facebook. Share my page with your family and friends and I hope to hear form you soon to book your event or family photo shoot.

Have you had a similar experience? I would love to hear about it or what you had to say in reply to help them understand why a photographer charges for their service.

 

Thanks for your time.

Joe Martin

Who Hires a Photographer?

Who Hires a Photographer?

We all love to take photos. I see photos being taken every place I go. It may be at the market when we see someone snapping a picture of a food package that struck a funny cord or at the beach when families want to remember a beautiful day as one. With so many camera phones in the hands of teens and young adults, photos are being taken by the thousands every minute. Some news stories are putting the numbers even higher. With close to 300,000 photos being added to facebook every minute. That is a lot of memories and not all should be saved.

That is why myself and many others are here. To make the memories that should be saved. To capture faces the way they should be remembered. In the right light in the right way. With angles and backgrounds that add drama to a scene to draw the viewer in closer and to tell a story. We need to create memories of more then just a snap shot or screen grab. Portraiture that is worthy of hanging in the space that you live for years to come only to be add to with updates and new family additions. When a child is born or a wedding has brought two families together.

Who hires a photographer? We all need one. Even the pro photographer will hire out another to capture unique images of their own memories or moment in time. Using the camera to tell a story and the lens to draw in the light. In the same way a photographer tells others stories, you as a consumer can aid in this story telling with the willingness to be posed in a way that not only encapsulates your true being, but to also tell of a chapter that is yet to come or is being writing as the photos take shape. So when you do need some family, senior or wedding portraits think about the professionals in the field of photography. If you think about it, you would only have the best person for the job to work on your home or car, right? So don’t think for a minute that it is any different with your life’s memory. Hire a professional photographer that will do the jobs you need done. In fact contact me today to set up a time for us to chat about your next set of family or wedding portraits.  Contact page

Photojournalistic Wedding Photography

Whether it is a great black and white photo of the bride and groom having a sweet and private moment or that wide shot of the guests in the church from a low angle. I love this style of wedding photography and I am really looking forward to doing more of it. I have been reading more about the concept and the style really fits with my life.  For me it is more relaxed and real. It is about blending into the wedding party and getting the up close and personal shots as well as photos that make a true statement about a couples love for each other and their family and  guests. It is full of emotion and has an element of history behind it.

From the very first moment, to the last kiss goodbye, there is a feeling like no other that comes from a photojournalism-styled wedding project. Many color photos can be created in this style too. We all love those colors with the soft tones of the day or a slowly setting sun. Posing for a wedding like this is a craft all its own. When ones passion can be used to guide and create the vision of your wedding day, we know we will make something special. With my 50MM lens and some easy light techniques, you will all be amazed with the outcome. Are you getting married in 2014 or 2015? If you’re still on the look out for a wedding photographer know that together we will create some magic memories in whatever style of photography you like.  Please contact me for my portrait rates. I will be more then happy to give you the time you deserve to make this the best day of your life! 603-367-4657 or you may email me to start some dialog joe@joemartinphotography.com
