Orchestra Iowa – Verdi Requiem


On March 19, 2011 I once again had the honor of photographing one of Orchestra Iowa’s performances!  Words can’t really describe how much I enjoy these events and working with the great people and musicians that make up Orchestra Iowa! 

I arrive and talk specifics with Christy Frost and Robert Massey on what they are looking for.  We scope out my “spots” which varies with the different venues.  This venue was the Concert Hall at College Community which  has some of the best acoustics in this area. 

The musicians start their warmup which gives a subtle hint of the great performance about to unfold.  Then silence for a few minutes until maestro Timothy Hankewich comes on stage and takes charge.  The music starts….

It’s hard for me to describe what happens next, but I’m gonna try!  🙂  Once the music starts the best way I can describe it is I just zone out.  I see the faces on the musicians, hear the music, the music inspires me, and that just multiplies on itself throughout the performance. 

A special Thank You to Orchestra Iowa for placing your trust in me and allowing me to photograph their events!

Thank you to Claire McGranahan also for helping out at this event!  Great job and great eye!

ADDY Awards – Feb 18, 2011


Last Friday night I had a great time photographing the ADDY awards at Theater Cedar Rapids.  Made some new friends and saw a couple old friends.  They even had a red carpet for the attendees, complete with paparazzi!  THAT was a lot of fun! 

A special thanks to Elyse Fletcher for contacting  me to photograph this event! 

 

  I LOVED this image by Kirk Murray! 

  Maddie presented the award to Kirk.

As Always have a great day and Stay Positive!

Zach’s Senior Portraits


Zach stopped by for his senior portraits, his sister Arielle, had her senior portraits done with us in 2008 I think it was.  It was a rather cold day so we just had some fun in the studio and will do outdoor shots later in the spring when things warm up a bit. 

Thanks to Zach and his mother Cassandra for once again choosing Visions Photography!  🙂  We really appreciate you!

Coolest Senior Package in Iowa!


Are you tired of the same old senior portraits?  Do you want something that represents the REAL you and is different from all your friends? 

How would you like to be treated like a top model for your Senior Portrait Session?    

We are excited to bring you a new package, something no one else in the area is offering.  We are so happy to be able to bring this type of Senior Photography to Eastern Iowa.  Special thanks to SAVVY EXCURSIONS LTD. Limousine Service and Dina Alsaid for working with us on this project.

The limousine will pick you up at your house, bring you to the studio for your makeup which will be done by a professional makeup artist.  We will then get in the limo to take you to three locations of your choice for pictures.  The makeup artist will come along for any “touch ups” that may be needed.  I will also have an assistant to aid in making the lighting for each image extraordinary.  We will also provide snacks and beverages of your choice to munch on along the way.  Parents and friends are also more than welcome to join us in the limo.

This new package includes the session fee, limo, makeup artist, photo assistant/ assistants,  in-house proofing session,  online gallery, $350 in studio credit you can use for any product we sell, and 120 wallets.   As with any of our packages, include friends or pets for free, no limits on clothing changes, no extra charge for black and whites or special effects. 

This will be a photo session you will remember for the rest of your life! 

All this for an introductory package price of $750 plus sales tax, a savings of $245.00 off  the regular price for this package, which will be $995.

Call NOW to book your session!!!  319-286-8483   This offer will end on November 30th, 2010.

Other packages also available starting at 395.00 

As always have a great  day and stay positive!
