Blogging has kind of fallen off the radar for me the last couple months. Not sure why, but definitely keen to start sharing more here.
I put a post up on Facebook about 10 days ago, sharing a couple more faces that have come in to the studio, and the response over the last week has been fantastic with tons of people contacting me to come in and get their portrait done. I am going to share a couple more faces with you, and hopefully you’ll get off your ass and come in yourself!
I’ve also been getting quite a few questions about the project, so I’ll do my best to answer these “FAQ’s”:
-No, it doesn’t cost you anything. Its going to take 5-10mins, and you’ll be on your way.
-Whether you’ve lived in town for 5 minutes, or 5 generations, I want you to come in.
-I want you to come in as close to “you” as you can. Come in right after work, right after you woke up, messy/muddy/scruffed up, wearing your favorite toque or ballcap, however you are most comfortable. No hair and make-up required. I want you to be authentic.
-All ages welcome. Bring in your kids, your parents, your grandparents.
I plan on shooting for this body of work for the next 9-12 months, so if you’re busy next week, thats cool. Give me a call when you’ve got a free 10mins. The goal of this project is to create a book that will tell the story of Fernie through the portraits of the people who make this city “HOME”.
