SUPPY TUMBLA

I know I’ve been slacking so hard on posting but I’ve been busy freelancing and planning out new trips for festivals/concerts/work (p.s. book a shoot, hehe). I’m forcing myself to sit down for more than an hour on the computer to edit photos all week and post post post. PropertyOfZack should be posting a couple of sets that I took today or tomorrow so make sure to follow and keep up with music news. I also have a few more California photos to post.

Also, check out the website and look at my kickass new logo done by Elliot James! If you need some work done, shoot me a message and I can provide you his email.

tell all your friends xx

My 35L! I’m thinking between the 24-70L or 16-35L next!

A couple of good oldies of mine! Strange you cut the watermark but gave me credit still. You are some strange people, tumblrians.

Write up a press email like you would normally do and replace “photo pass” with an “all working pass”. Further explain in a simple sentence or two that you would like to include photos of the drummer and crowd interaction. Also include that you would have no problem sending over the gallery link when posted along with additional photos that the band can post on social media (with credit of course). You don’t need to change up too much in your usual press emails!

Anonymous said: how do you make a logo for photos when you're just starting out? i have no clue how to

here’s a tip: if you wanna look as profesh and classy as you can be, get a graphic designer to make a logo for you. if you have no design experience, your logo miiiight be on the tacky side. I learned that the hard way (didn’t listen to my teacher, made my own for projects, got laughed at, got marked points off for it looking too much like “student designed work”, went home and cried and ate ice cream and watched degrassi)
