Relay for Life of Klamath County, Saturday, June 19, 2014.  Henley High School.

Relay for Life of Klamath County, Saturday, June 19, 2014.  Henley High School.

Did you know: that Brian Gailey Photography has teamed up with Craig Douglas Photography to create a 2014 Relay for Life team?  

Yep it is true, and we at BGP are donating $25 from each photo session from now until June 19th to Relay for Life of Klamath County.  You can come in and get spring portraits of your family to decorate the walls of your home and help Relay for Life at the same time.  This is what I call a win-win. :)

We can also available to take donations at the time of the portrait order too.  We can easily round up your order to include any donation you would like to provide, $10, $25, $100 or more.  Our team goal is $1000 this year. Can you help us get there?

During Relay we will have a Dr. Seuss themed photo booth with fun props and accessories.  Such as items from Cat in the Hat, Thing 1 & 2, the Lorax and many others.

I am often asked Why We Relay? Our family has been deeply touched by cancer.  Many friends and family members have had cancer and for some they lost the battle with cancer.  We Relay in the memory of those lost the war and celebrate those who have won the battle. 

If you would like to donate directly to our team you can do so at this link: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/BGP-CDP 

Thank you for your support. Until next time, stay focused. 
Brian.

New Phone Number

Call me Maybe... 541-887-2290

It has just been crazy around here for the last few months.  Senior models, families, real estate, switching gear to Nikon, I could go on and on... but I will not bore you with those details. What I do want to tell you is that we have a new phone number for the studio.  Update your phones, contact lists or Rolodex; our new phone number is 541-887-2290.  Our old number would not transfer in the move to our new studio so we lost it after 8 years.  So if you try to call it, you will get a busy signal.  Please use the new number, 541-887-2290, instead.

Until next time, stay focused
Brian

A Short Business Update

It has been crazy busy here ever since we have moved into our new location, and I love it!  Since moving in we have been doing several Commercial Photo shoots, product photography, on location photography, interviews with 2015 High School Senior Model applicants, processing, packaging and so much more.  

However, just today, in all the busyness in found a video that was uploaded on to Youtube and Facebook from BuzzFeed Videos.  This short 2:40 video is on the beauty of women and how they see themselves when processed in Photoshop to be cover models. 

We take great pride on getting to know just who is in front of our camera and we do our best to make them look as beautiful as possible. However, what we will not do, like this video explains. We will not turn you into someone you do not recognize.  Thanks BuzzFeed Video for sharing this with the world.

We asked four women to participate in a Photoshop experiment. Their reactions to the results will surprise you.

New Studio & Contest Winner

New Studio

Our new studio location. 1330 Main Street, Klamath Falls, OR.

It is official, we are now moved into our new location.  We are pleased to announce that our new studio location is at 1330 Main Street, Klamath Falls, OR.  We are in the same photography studio as Craig Douglas Photography. 

We have been working with Craig and Debie for many years and have become as close as family with them. The time just seemed right to make the move. We have not combined the businesses, BGP has not bought out CDP or vice/versa.  However, we will continue to work together and make both businesses stronger. 

 

Contest Winner

During our transition to the new studio we held a contest on our Facebook and Instagram pages. For the contest we captured some photos of the new location and uploaded them to a gallery on each site.  We then asked for people to comment on where they thought the new location was.  Each comment per photo gained one entry to the contest.  We also gave bonus entries for each share and like to the page.  

We first thank everyone who entered into the contest. It was a great turnout of comments.  We some wild guesses and even a couple correct ones too.  But congratulations to Deborah Gilliand, as she was randomly drawn to win the prize.  A free studio session at the new studio.  Way to go Deborah.

As we completely get settled into the new studio space. We plan on holding a few events through the Klamath County Chamber of Commerce.  A Ribbon Cutting, Greeters or After Hours event are all possible.  Stay tuned for all the details. 

Until next time, stay focused.
