This month has seen the launch of new products, the announcement of our Ambassadors and also a little more talk about the Click, and an amazing ambassadors get together at Just Desserts in Gawler. A Winter themed Photo Experience, a Model for a Day Photo Experience, A Model Portfolio Update session, lots of Reveal and Select sessions just to name a few of the things that have been keeping us busy!
Face of July

Mackenzie – Our Face of July!

 

I had planned to chat about a lot of things this month but have looked at the date and realised if I don’t publish this today it won’t be the June Newsletter!! Plenty to talk about next month!

 

We have had an amazing month – I hope you have also!

  • The Face of June

For our Face of June we planned a Birthday Photo Experience and we had lots of applications.

Face of June - not one but three

Face of June – not one but three

The Face of the Month for June was not one face but three – the winner and her two besties had to have birthdays in the next couple of months and we were very excited to have three delightful young girls here for an amazing photo experience on the 6th of May. Think birthday cake, balloons, pink, bubbles, party dresses and lots of sweet party food! I think you can probably get the picture –

If this looks like fun and the sort of thing you or someone you know would like to do for their birthday give me a call. We can tailor the experience specifically to the birthday girl and her besties –

Golden Hour

Golden Hour – we are always happy to add this to your Birthday Experience

A no frills party investment will get you the basics including some party food balloons and bubbles with an option to purchase framed images after the event through to the top of the range where you can enjoy a cake smash and a party goodies bag for the birthday guests and birthday girl with a Party Photo Package specifically designed for you and your guests.

We also have a no expenses spared package which includes a gorgeous Matte Art Birthday Album. The album will be hand made in our Pro printers lab here in Adelaide – where they will pay attention to every detail. It is a luxurious gift to give which will keep the birthday girls memories alive for a life time!

This one really takes the cake!

This one really takes the cake! Why should one year olds have all the fun!

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

Model Ava

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.

Ballet in the Park

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.

Models Ellirah, Alyssa, Teegan,Brittany and Erin

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!

The Face Of GT Studios is Growing Up

A lot of people ask us about the little face on our GT Studios business cards, logo, Avatar, etc. They want to know who she is and how she came to be “The Face” that we chose.

Little Miss C has been a part of our lives since she was a baby. She has always been a natural in front of the camera and was always willing to look down the lens when we needed her to. We have watched her grow and change but she has always remained a sheer delight to photograph.

Her parents have been amazing in the support they have given us. Always allowing us to take up their time as we became totally immersed in one photo session after another. Over the last four years we have been lucky enough to add another two delightful little cuties from this family to our group of models that we use to promote our photography business.

We are always happy to add to our group of willing models and will be doing a model call soon to promote some of the gorgeous new outfits in the GT Studios wardrobe. If you know someone who might be interested  contact Graham or Karen today for more details.

Sunday in the Park

Really want to share a few more images with you from the photo session with Mikayla and Marcus so here are the next four! The first image shows Mikayla wearing a fresh floral crown that I made especially for the shoot. The flowers were from the lovely people at Flowers Everywhere . The next image has Mikayla and Marcus hand in hand as they take a walk down the garden path. This is an ideal spot for a pre or post formal/graduation photo package experience.

The location was amazing, we had so many options to choose from, I think this place will become a favourite spot for us to take our clients. This time of year it has a field of little white daisies, beautiful lavender bushes, trees full of blossom and citrus trees too! If you would like to have some amazing images in a park setting why not book a session at our Pop-up Photo Shoot in the Park. It’s on Sunday the 18th of September. For only $100 you get a 45 minute session with 3 high resolution fully edited digital images. Click here for details.

The final two images for today’s post show beautiful portraits of Mikayla and Marcus. If you would like to have a photo experience like this you can book a session by contacting us. Let us know what you want and we will be happy to discuss your options.

Sometimes you just know the photo experience is going to be a good one and this was one of those experiences! Here are the first 4 photos from this weekend.

Mikayla

GT Studios had the opportunity to work with two amazing young teenagers, Mikayla and Marcus, during a 2 hour shoot in the park. This gave plenty of time for a few outfit/theme changes and the chance for them to experience our pop-up change room! Marcus even got roped in as photographers assistant at one point! (You did a great job Marcus!)

If you would like to capture casual, formal, or fantasy experiences as memories that last forever why not contact us and we can arrange a photo experience that suits your needs. There are still sessions available at the pop-up session in the park on Sunday the 18th of September. This is amazing value for what you get – check out the details here.

Life can be a bit like that if you let it –

This weekend we had a beautiful opportunity to capture some precious life moments between two delightful little sisters.

Some reassurance - big sister's support never far away.

Miss C and Miss T were naturals, sitting on a picnic rug in the park, they just did what came naturally. This set of images tells a beautiful story – a loving look, some reassurance, a quick kiss and a shared secret then hand in hand they are on an amazing journey together!

Life can be a bit like that if you let it –

Over the next few weeks we will share some of the images from their amazing adventure they had during the 2 hour photo shoot – at the end of the day I asked them if they had fun – YES!! I asked if they wanted to do it again -YES!! That made our day!! GT Studios takes us on an amazing life journey every time we get the opportunity to do what we did this weekend!

A quick kiss and a shared secret - what mischief is being planned?

As promised on our Facebook Page, we have featured some images of three of our favourite models from the Photography Field Day that was held at the Adelaide Biplanes Aldinga Airfield Vintage Day.

We had a fantastic day, had a great opportunity to meet some amazing people and take lots of photos. Cass Jayde, Janice and Skye have kindly allowed us to share some of the images on our web page and our FaceBook page.

Fit for a Princess

A bit excited to show off my floral crown that I made all by myself (with a little bit of help from Mum!) for our photo shoot last week. This photo was taken at the end of the day – the floral crown had been on many heads that afternoon and handled by two very cute little girls too!

The native Australian greenery was picked fresh from our garden but I am not lucky enough to grow the flowers there. Not bad for my first attempt. Hoping to get a chance to make more for future photo sessions – if you are interested PM me on Facebook or go to the contact page on our website.

Our little model watched as I took this photo and asked what I was doing – I think she was quite puzzled that I would take a photo of the flowers without a person wearing them! Here is one of the beautiful images from the weekend – with someone wearing the floral crown – our little model approved!!

The Face of GT Studios

We thought it would be nice to share a few photos from this weekends photo shoot. Our model for the shoot had her 4th birthday today – she is already a seasoned model – she needs very little direction and as you can see she is quite comfortable in front of the camera.

During the photo session she noticed the photographer was leaning on the ground to get a better angle. She asked why he was not standing any more – when she was given the answer she immediately responded with “oh, I will lie down then” – she repositioned her floral crown and looked straight down the lens of the camera!

We are very lucky to have such a gorgeous little girl – and very grateful to her parents for letting us share her with you! Happy Birthday Miss C xx
