Boxes and identities

leave a comment »

I am on the lookout for boxes! I have been in and out of many a store in Charlottesville and Alexandria, and cannot seem to find exactly what I’m looking for – if it’s within the price range, it’s too cheesy for me. If it’s exactly what I want, it’s too expensive.

Why am I looking for boxes? One of the take-home messages of the recent photography workshop I attended was that a photographer should deliver a product that reflects who they are, what their style is, their point of view. Seems obvious, right? Not exactly: when you’re in the midst of running an operation that is part business and part creation, things like this can get lost in the fray.

Therefore, I have begun to re-think many things I’m doing, including my manner of photograph presentation – and I need boxes!

Below are a few that are very close to perfect. If you know anyone local to Virginia who makes containers similar to those below, please let me know!

I love these for the color and the butterfly/bird emblem¬† in the center. If I could just find a bag of charms similar t0 that, I’d be good to go.

These are more than vintage – they’re antique! The price tag was $85 each – but I’d love to find them newer, cleaner, and a little less pricey. So far, the only place I’ve found that makes these en mass is in China…and I’d really prefer to stay local with this endeavor. Let me know if you can help!

The speed and quantity of digital photography in my life has finally gotten to me, so a little bit ago, I decided to try portrait painting. The above was painted from a photograph of my partner.

Things have been super busy here since the last post. From preparations for the Child Face Exhibit at McGuffey Art Center to the opening of a new exhibit of Foxhaven Farm photographs at 12th St. Taphouse to flying all the way to Palo Alto, California for a series of family clients, we have been going, going, going! Over the next few days I will be updating you on the latest and greatest, so stay tuned!
