While I’m not a great book designer yet, I do find the tools and price point to create really nice looking books on Blurb to be a great outlet for my creativity.  I have a new book in process which I hope to finish up in the next two months.  These are the two I have done so far.  Check out some of the other amazing books on Blurb.  It’s cool!

Fitness / Model Portfolio Shots

Posted in photography with tags , , , , , , on September 3, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

I was contacted by a model represented by Sports + Lifestyle  Unlimited in Portland, Oregon to do some shots for her portfolio.  Since I have a relationship with Club Zum in downtown Seattle we got permission to shoot there for two hours on a Friday afternoon.  Angie turned out to be super fit (!) and great to work with.  We’ll definitely be working together again.  Here are a few of the shots from the session.

Marketing for Assignments 02

Posted in Business, Marketing, photography with tags , , , , , on July 15, 2010 by Tim McGuire Images

Well, I’ve now sent out 6300 or so emails via Agency Access and followed up on all the clicks with direct mail cards.  No calls related to those promotions yet.

I’m averaging 17.5% of recipients opening the emails and 4+% actually clicking through to my website.  My portfolio is waiting….

I’m thinking about not having a physical printed portfolio but rather maybe finding some way to make an absolutely beautiful interactive portfolio online, something better, cooler, bigger than my regular website.  I have to give this some thought….  I feel it’s a waste to be sending printed portfolios via the mail, jets, trucks, etc…  It goes against my ethics on having a sustainable life and business as well as my wish to cut down on my carbon footprint… something that is hard to do given the choices we have available to us today.

If anyone reading this has gone “printed portfolio-less”, please let me know your experience. Did you do something else as an alternative?

Also, If anyone has great ideas for online password protected portfolio presentations please share.
