There’s been a plugin available for WordPress that allows bookings to be made via the website and the advanced versions allow for Paypal payments and lots of customization. The point of it is of course to make the call to action easier and safer for my photographic clients. I want to of course ensure that this process is done securely and with the greatest of ease. Give the calendar a try, it’s currently only a form of easy contact that shows bookings and no payments are available. Should this version work securely, I will consider purchasing the version with Paypal integration and more suitable customization.
To kick this into gear, I’ll take 20% off regular bookings until the end of May. (Wedding photography prices and commercial photography are always calculated case by case depending on client needs or licencing)
Don’t hesitate to enjoy this discount, book a family portrait, model folio, pet photography or band shoot now!
History Alive is coming up surprisingly soon.
For those who have yet to attend, you’ve been missing out. History Alive is a multi-period re-enactment event where in one weekend you can watch battles and tournaments on the field from over 2000 years. The location, Fort Lytton. MAP HERE.
I’ve been running the photographic team for the last few years at HA and each year I try to capture something a little different.
Here’s the flyer for this year’s event. Click on the flyer to see the HA home page.
I have had to hold off on exporting a few jobs from around new years due to my Lightroom 2 program trial expiring in my old system. Now with an entirely new OS installed I have kicked a new copy of Lightroom into gear and will be able to catch up on those jobs. To have started them over in Lightroom 1.4 would have lost a lot of editing already done in formats not supported in the older version.
While in WinXP Lightroom 2 sucked resources like crazy, in Windows7 beta it is taking only a fraction of the RAM and CPU load to do the job and much, much faster. It doesn’t hurt that Monk built me a new pc with twice as much RAM and a newer CPU at all, but the difference is far beyond the hardware upgrade alone.
Lots to work on tonight so I’ll shut up and process pics. Will post some up soon.
There’s a trail run of a gothic club called HEX#000000 on tonight at The Globe Theatre on Brunswick Street in the Valley tonight. I’ll be there getting some social shots and portraits done before heading to my usual gig at Club Blink at 299 (also Brunswick St , The Valley). It’s great to see more underground music getting play in Brisbane!
For those of you who have never had to code up a web page, the name of the club refers to the colour black in HTML.
A quick breath before the great plunge.
So much to get sorted in such a short time and after a day of fighting with the pc’s here and at my business partner’s home, I just want to chill and take time out. Mais il ne doit pas être! No chance, Friday will be retouching/deep etching fifteen shots I captured yesterday for Bankwest, sorting out what the malware on this beast pc is, buying a new HDD and installing that before returning Khrys’s WD640GB with fresh tunes and a big thanks, then wrapped up with *hopefully* a shoot with the gorgeous Imogen Green. I would love for anyone who has heard of couples due to be married and looking for photographers to contact me. My calendar is wide open after the Abbey and call me odd but I do enjoy that kind of work!
*edit* Imogen’s shoot is off due to lack of sleep last night for all parties, which never makes for relaxed times in the studio.
and… I just had an email regarding my first sale of photos from the History Alive event as well. The owner of the World War Two German Half Track (shown below) wants a print. I hope he doesn’t mind the use of the DX lens on the D3!
The image below is the old Queensland Museum taken with the Nikon D3, hand held half an hour after sunset. Available as prints on request.
