The Artistes : Part Duex

I now have a picture of both myself and my beautiful bride Amanda. At your upcoming wedding, we will be the ones shooting your grand event.

Enjoy !

Construction is beginning

Yippie !!!

After a ton of delays, we are finaling getting close on building our new studio. We are renovating an old grainery on the farmstead that was the orginal building here over 100 years ago. From the records we've been able to find and research, this building was built in 1901 and they lived in it for 2 years while our home was being built.

We still have some hurdles before full scale building begin, but at least we are able to start cleaning things up to get the project going.

Happy Thanksgiving

Greetings Blog readers.

Today is Thanksgiving here in the US. It was a great day. We had a high of 55 degrees (normal is like 40), we slept in, and then went over to my wife's greater family for lunch.

Here is a little collage of today.

The New Sign

We are in the process of designing a nice roadside sign for our country studio. In our area, we need to have this approved by the county in order to get a building permit. So, for the meantime, we designed these Coroplast Signs.

Do Not Call Policy

Brite Idea Photography uses the telephone as one important way to stay in contact with our customers and our potential customers in the community. Because a good relationship with the community is a necessary ingredient of our success, and in keeping with state and federal laws, it is the policy of this studio that we will not make sales-related telephone calls to any person who has indicated a desire not to receive such calls. This includes those who have registered with state or federal "Do Not Call lists," as well as those who have previously told us directly that they do not wish to receive such calls.

Olde Man Winter came over last night to pay our home us visit.

New Blog Home

Greetings Photo World !

I've decided to switch my blog over to Blogger. With more images to use and better integration with Picasa, I've decide to switch over.

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to be launching a new website at www.BriteIdeaPhotography.com. We've been so busy over the summer that web development was "greatly" slowed. We have the new design done, content is done, new 2007 brochures just about wrapped up and it's all coming together nicely.
