Well since the government can’t seem to do anything about this economic down-turn, I decided not to wait around and to do something myself. While many business are shuttering, I’ve made the full-time commitment to my long-time passion of photography and opened a new portrait studio on Bend’s east side.
The 1600+ sq ft facility will be the new home for Images By Tracy Smith and will also offer studio rental on an hourly and daily basis for local photographers (plus I plan to have other events here as well, stay tuned for announcement about those). The studio sports several different shooting stations inside for a variety of looks -see more photos here. I’ve gone with a modern feel to the decor because…well that’s just me (don’t be surprise to see modern and contemporary art pieces/paintings interspersed with my own original photographic works).
In addition to the new digs, this winter Image By Tracy Smith went through a major re-branding with a newly designed logo and website, also with a more contemporary, modern feel. Although I technically started the business 6 years ago, it hasn’t been a full-time commitment-that has changed for 2011. The business will concentrate on portraits for high school seniors, individuals, couple, families and groups looking for uniquely created images which combine action and fashion with traditional portraiture. I will also be working with local models and aspiring models on help develop their portfolios. I’ll continue to shoot sports and other events through my event company Cascade Event Photography.
If you happen to be in the area give me a shout and stop by, if I am free I’d love to show you around. Portrait sessions are by appointment only.
