July Snapshot GT Studios Photography

Oh no – that can’t possibly be the date – are you sure it’s August?

July has flown by for us here at GT Studios and has probably been one of our busiest months ever – far too much to mention in one newsletter!

We are so grateful to all our wonderful new clients and the support we have had from their families as well as the amazing support we continue to receive from our Ambassadors and their families, our followers on Instagram and Facebook and the many Accounts and Pages that have featured our photos over the last month. The feedback and comments we have received lately have reassured us that we do what we do for all the right reasons. We love what we do – and when your work is your passion it really doesn’t feel like work!

Nothing is worse than missing an opportunity that could have changed your life – we have received some heart-warming feedback this month about the changes we have helped make in the lives of some young people – perhaps we can change the life of someone you love too! Building self confidence and self esteem is so important in today’s society. Our beautiful Teegan art work (our top feature image on our snapshot) is a huge 75cmx100cm frameless matte art image and has had such an impact on our clients as they enter the studio that people are telling us that they are actually dreaming about it! That is the effect that large scale wall art can have on people and why we urge our clients to have their beautiful work printed and go as big as their space permits – this action is a lasting statement of loyalty love and commitment to their child.

As always we welcome you to the GT Studios Monthly Snapshot. A chance to keep all of our wonderful GT Studios People – clients, models, collaborators, and friends up to date with the latest news and happenings. By the way – what do you think of the new lay-out? We seem to have lost our galleries – but hopefully by our August Snapshot we will have them back!

  • The Face of July – Winter

For our Face of July we felt it was appropriate that we celebrated winter – even if I don’t really like winter! I was surprised at the amount of applications – who knew winter would be popular!

Goodbye to Autumn

Our Face of July – Mackenzie – Goodbye to Autumn

We chose Mackenzie as our winner this month. She presented an amazing application – she answered all the questions that I asked. She gave enough detail without going overboard. She was believable and sincere.

Red Berries

Face of July – Mackenzie – Winter – Red Berries

Her original plan was to have a friend with her but due to circumstances beyond her control she attended the photo shoot without her friend. As teen and tween portrait photographers we were fine with this as we were able to give Mackenzie the attention that we would give our usual clients. We planned the session in detail and captured many aspects of winter – we even managed to incorporate some snow, Christmas and hot chocolate!

Christmas Wishes

Face of July – Mackenzie – Christmas Wishes – Christmas in July

When Mackenzie returned for her Reveal and Select session we asked if she would do us a favour and do another little mini session as I had been able to find some beautiful red berries for a winter head piece. She jumped at the chance! She showed such enthusiasm and worked so well that we asked her to stay a bit longer and do some model work for us that evening. By the end of the night we were pretty sure we wanted to invite her to become part of the team! After a chat with the other ambassadors we were delighted to contact Mackenzie and now we are very excited to say that she is our 7th official GT Studios Ambassador. In the months ahead we will introduce you to each of our ambassadors.

We have already showcased images for July on Instagram but these are just a few in case you missed them! You can follow us on Instagram at www.instagram.com/gtstudiosphotography

 

  • Christmas

On the topic of Christmas – did you know it is less than 5 months until the big day!!!! It is never too early to start planning your Christmas Gift List or that Christmas card list either.

At GT Studios we believe that receiving a beautiful personalised Christmas card is so much nicer than an sms or digital greeting – it shows you have put in some thought and effort. We also believe that customised wall art or a carefully planned album is one of the nicest gifts you can give to someone who holds a special place in your heart. Have you thought about a gift from GT Studios – it might be for a parent, grandparent, or child. We also offer gift certificates so if you know someone who would jump at the chance of one of our photo experiences then a Gift Certificate is the perfect option.  We will be there on every step of the journey – whether it is to plan a photo experience or plan an album or choose which photo to place on your wall. Let us help you this Christmas! Don’t leave it too late to order – quality takes time!

If you have had a photo experience with GT Studios now is the time to have a look at your proof sheets and choose which of those beautiful photos you will choose as your Christmas Gifts and cards this year.  Of course we are happy to help you choose – just call and we can discuss your images with you. If you have misplaced your proof sheets give me a call and we can arrange replacements.

 

If you need a new photo experience for your Christmas Photos your experience must be before the end of October to ensure delivery for Christmas! August is now fully booked.

 

  • Magazines Arrived

As I mentioned last month – we had some of our beautiful girls featured in Issue 10 and Issue 11 of Madison Fashion Magazine. Our copies arrived in the mail and of course it turned in to another mini photo shoot! We even had a live session on Instagram! Did you see us live? It was lots of fun!

  • Photo Experiences

July has been a month full of variety and creativity when it comes to our photo experiences. As well as our Face of the Month for July which had a winter theme we had the Face of August which we did the photo session for during July. We met two delightful young girls who showcased their favourite eras of fashion ‘70’s, 80’s, and 90’s! We also had the beautiful Miss M take part in the “Model for a Day” experience and Miss A came to update her model portfolio.

Model For A Day

Model For A Day

We were treated to some amazing dance sessions this month with several solo and group dance experiences as well as a Family photo experience and a Fine Art Experience with a Fantasy feel.

Portfolio Update

Portfolio Update

The weather was glorious for Emi’s portfolio update and we captured some awesome moments! We missed out on using the dress she ordered as it had not arrived so when she came back for her reveal and select session we did a mini photo experience and she looked amazing. Emi was really not very well that day but she still worked like a true professional.

We also had a chance to work on a photo experience with 5 of our 7 ambassadors ….. sssshhhhh!…. I can’t tell you about that – it’s a secret – watch this space and I will tell you all about it in the next newsletter!!!

A Passion For Dance

A Passion For Dance – Riley, Alex and Jordan – one of their amazing dance sets

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 –

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!

The Face of April

As I mentioned last month, we will be giving away a free photo experience every month for the Face of the Month Project. You can see some of the images from these photo experiences on our Instagram page and Facebook page.

Our Face of April had a musical theme and we had lots of applications. Some vocalists, flautists, keyboard/pianists, guitarists and a ukulele player but not everyone fulfilled the brief. I really struggled to choose a winner but Nyree impressed me with her application.

Day Dream Believer - The Face of April - Nyree

Day Dream Believer – The Face of April – Nyree

Nyree told me in her application that her two joys in life were her piano and being in front of a camera! She has been playing piano for less than a year but told me she was absolutely in love! She loves to listen to pop music but enjoys playing soft meaningful music. Of course, we didn’t expect Nyree to transport a piano or even a keyboard from her house to our studio – luckily we had one we could use for the photo experience and as you might have noticed from one of the sets of images on Instagram we even took it to the forest!

Sunshine on my Shoulder - Nyree - Face of April

Sunshine on my Shoulder – Nyree – Face of April

After some initial discussion about the photo experience we discovered that Nyree was also passionate about dance and it has been a part of her life for about 8 years – at 14 this means she has been doing it for more than half her life. She does ballet, jazz, and hip hop and is very excited to be starting on pointe next year – another big milestone in the life of a ballerina. We were delighted to discover Nyree danced so we incorporated dance in to the photo experience and we will hopefully showcase some of Nyree’s dance images next week on Instagram.

In to the Woods - Nyree - Face of April

In to the Woods – Nyree – Face of April

Nyree admits to being a very ambitious person and would like to be a model or marine biologist in the future. She understands that both these careers require a lot of hard work but is prepared to put in the time and effort. She would also like to travel to France as she loves all things chic and is a big lover of fashion.

Where words fail music speaks - I would like to think we could say that about our photography too!

The Face of the Month for May has been decided and I am very excited to announce that our winner is Courtney – her application was everything I was looking for! We are really looking forward to meeting her next week and sharing some images with you next month. Our theme for May is Quirky but Cool so we are keen to see how Courtney, Graham and I will work together to achieve this interesting Geeky look – this promises to be a fun photo experience!!!

Model Portfolio

One of the services that we provide is a Model Portfolio Photo Session. We have recently had the pleasure of adding to Jemma’s model portfolio. As an emerging talent she had an impressive portfolio already but we were delighted to be able to add our style to her collection.

Jemma was a dream to work with – vivacious, bubbly and bright – she easily transformed her look from one outfit to the next and took direction with ease. We feel sure Jemma will be a sought after model on the catwalk and at fashion shoots and we look forward to another opportunity to work with her.

Jemma’s hobbies are netball, dance, fashion and drawing. When she leaves school she would love to become a fashion designer and still do modelling as well! She hopes to complete her certificate ll and lll in fashion design during her schooling years of 11 and 12. Jemma started modelling last year when she came runner up in the AZALEA Models Rural Model Search and from then has absolutely loved being a model, having the opportunity to do several cat walks/runways and editorial photo shoots already.  Having worked for a hair and beauty salon and a fashion clothing store Jemma is always aware of the latest trends.

Like most models travelling to Paris is on the bucket list! However – for Jemma – it’s because she wants to climb the Eiffel Tower! Life is not all about modelling for Jemma though – she has a strong desire to travel to Cambodia or Indonesia too as she would like to help build homes or schools for people who need them. Family is also important to Jemma and one of her favourite holidays was a trip to Airlie Beach in Queensland because she traveled with a big group of family friends. She also loves time on the river with her family wake boarding and knee boarding.

You can see more images of Jemma on our Instagram account at @gtstudiosphotography
