Dance the Day Away

A Dream Come True

Before we throw ourselves in to 2018 I wanted to take a good look at the year that has just finished.

So much happened last year that it really does seem like a bit of a dream come true for us. I think it is really important to acknowledge where we started, where we are now, who joined us along the way and then look at the future.

The first half of the year was spent still consolidating the business side of things. We had done more studies and training and when June arrived my career path took a huge change. For those of you who didn’t know me before GT Studios, I was a Midwife and Registered Nurse. This role ended in June and we decided that it was time to take GT Studios that extra step and make it the Boutique Studio we had always wanted it to be. This meant I would need to dedicate all my time to the business but in turn it meant we could now truly look after you the way we had always wanted to! I really want to tell you all about the exciting transformation that has happened so this will be a feature in the next edition of our newsletter this year.

Dance the Day Away - Ballet in the park

Dance was a strong point for us in 2017. We photographed two performances for Julie-anne from Starlets SA and were commissioned for an advertising campaign with Jo from Move Through Life Dance Studio. We really love dance photography so we decided to offer a “Dance the Day Away” photo experience during the school holidays. We have continued to offer our other photo experiences and have added lots of beautiful clothes and props to the GT Studios wardrobe throughout the year.

Graham had six International Magazine publications between September and January. We are very excited about this and delighted to be able to help the young models who are featured further their exposure and modelling careers. More on this later in the year.

Model Erin at the Australian Supermodel of the Year Auditions

October was a huge month for us. It started with the Australian Supermodel of the Year Adelaide Auditions. We loved meeting such a great group of young people with ambition and amazing futures ahead. We had the pleasure of travelling interstate for photo shoots and meeting interstate photographers and models while we were there. It is really great to meet others in the same field and be able to work as collaborators and support each other rather than as competition. Photography can be a lonely path if you let it but we have been so fortunate with the people we have networked with since we set up GT Studios.

Once again we took part in Susy’s Girls Night In Charity Event in October. With both our 2016 and 2017 winners now having had their photo sessions.

As always, ongoing training and education plays a big part in the business. We always make a point of catching up with familiar faces at the Big Lens Day at Diamonds Camera Video and Digital. We popped along to the print colour calibration session at CCP hosted by Diamonds and continued our on line training. Of course – it can’t be all work and no play – so what do photographers do to relax – a workshop with Denis Smith and his Ball of Light – always lots of fun even if it is freezing. We didn’t have to go in the water – Denis did – he had a wet suit on so hopefully he wasn’t as cold as we were!!

Dancing with Light

As 2017 drew to an end we realised that our GT Studios family had grown considerably. Many of the previous year’s clients had returned and we had met so many new people along the way. We are truly grateful for the amazing year that we had. We love getting to know you all and we hope that you enjoyed your experience with us. Every photo experience is unique and we love designing it especially for you!

Girls Night In

Girls Night In 2017

Once again GT Studios will be joining Susy and Peter this Friday, 27th of October as they host their  Girls Night In at Beyond Bank Seaford Central Shopping Centre . If you are free it would be great to see you there from 6.30 -8pm. If you can’t make it you can still donate on line. Susy has a goal of $2000 but it would be awesome if we could go higher than that!! There will be lots of great displays and awesome prizes to be won.

It will be a fun night, and at the same time an opportunity for like minded women to raise funds and awareness for women’s cancer research, prevention programs and support services.

GT Studios has felt the sting of cancer at a family level and we want to help make cancer and cancer deaths a thing of the past. So this year we have donated a Photo Experience to the value of $250 (including a $50 print credit) and hope that Susy and Peter raise lots and lots of much needed funds.

Around 65 women are diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer in Australia… Every. Single. Day.

But every single day we also get closer to a cancer-free future. Although one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer by age 85, a woman diagnosed today has a 90% chance of surviving for five years.

Since the National Cervical Screening Program began in 1991, cervical cancer deaths in Australia have halved.

The statistics that I have quoted have come from the Cancer Councils “Girls Night In” web page – these statistics will continue to improve with every dollar raised at each Girls Night In that is held.

Girls’ Night In asks women to harness the power of their friendship groups to make a real difference and save lives.

As a boutique photography studio who photographs mostly girls and woman we know how widespread cancer is within our community. We are as passionate about this cause as we are our photography. Please consider attending or donating to Susy and Peter’s “Girls Night In” or directly to the Cancer Council SA
