Event Photojournalism: Shoot for Story ~ Edit for Perception (sm)

About event photojournalism
Telling the story is event photojournalism's highest priority. To tell your event's story we use professional and "fine-art" techniques as much as possible but we also celebrate luck, the grab shot, your snap-shots and historic photos, restoring color and black & white photos — we'll work with any image that helps you tell your story.

"Art is the demonstration that the ordinary is extraordinary."
Amadee Ozenfant

Build your library
For your organization we help create a library of quality images that tell your story in time and over time; in time for immediate uses such as news letters and promotions, and over time for long term projects such as galleries and displays.

"You don't take a photograph, you make it"
Ansel Adams

Celebrate your diversity
Event photojournalism serves a wide variety of stories, environments, lighting conditions, compositions, action/interactions, and client objectives.  Below are a few examples to illustrate this variety.

Your Event
We refresh your memories.  Our photography helps you create, preserve and share your memories.  We provide photography services to create new images, and we retouch and restore your existing prints, negatives, and digital images.

For complex projects we help you with planning, storyboarding, and implementing.

Printing is provided on archival art papers, and long term storage is provided on on archival digital media.

Déjà Vu
"The illusion of having already experienced something
actually being experienced for the first time."
