Meet Moose!

From Today’s Fun Studio Session.

Studio 211 Holiday Pet Portrait Shoot Session #1

Had a GREAT turnout and brought some BIG smiles to a lot of loving and proud pet owners with this impromptu pet session here at my Studio! From all the nice comments and excited responses, I’ll definitely be doing another Studio Pet Shoot like this again, sometime down the road.

Holiday Pet Photos @ The 211 Studio – This Sunday 12/09/18 – From 1:00pm to 6:00pm.

OK, so here’s the Deal!
You all know me, and know that I’ve been accused of being pretty good behind my camera! People, Sports, PETS!

My wife and her Doggy Mom Friends, & Classmates from numerous Dog Shows, Obedience Groups & Training Classes, etc. have been on me all year to offer this, because in years past some of them have gone elsewhere (THE MALL) and had Holiday Pictures done, very costly and believe me…They were Pretty BAD! Very Dark. No Details. No Highlights. Just Bad. That’s all I’ll say as I want to be kind….but anyway here’s what I’m offering to do it right and actually give you some Professional Images that you will be Proud to have for Years to come..

WHERE? 
Bring your favorite family pet to my Rick Bacmanski PhotoArtistry 211 Studios on North Main Street in Horseheads, NY

WHEN?
This Sunday December 09, 2018 from 1:00pm to 6:00pm

WHAT THEN?
You’ll have up to TEN MINUTES with me in my Studio…I’ll shoot a lot of PROFESSIONALLY LIT & SET UP Images of your Pet, and also with YOU if you wish in a Holiday Setting. TEN MINUTES.  If your pet is hard to control, well that’s just time off the clock for you. If he or she sits great, obeys orders and poses well…we can be done in a couple minutes, it’s all up to them!  I know Pets are all individuals and have their own great personalities. I’m a dog lover, so I’ll try to work my doggie friendship magic to get the best out of each and every one of them! I’ll shoot till we feel we have some really great shots, or till their ten minutes is up.

SO WHAT DO YOU GET?
NO PRINTS!
After Sunday’s shoot is done, I’ll Edit and Adjust all the images of your buddy, I’ll ditch the bad ones, and load all the good Full Sized Image Files onto a Thumb Drive for you. You will also get a Copyright Release Waiver from me, which will now allow you to do whatever you wish with these Full Sized JPEG Images. You can make Prints, Holiday Cards, Posters…whatever you want, wherever you want to do them. They are YOURS!

SO WHAT’S THE COST?
Cost per Pet is $60.00 (cash or check only payable at the shoot) and you also bring me a 8gb Thumb Drive onto which I will load your final images for you. My price for a standard Portrait Shoot is $250.00, so this is a nice way for you to get some Great Shots of your Pet without the usual higher cost.

If you forget to bring the Thumb Drive, I’ll provide one for you for a $15.00 additional charge.
*Each additional Pet (if you want to have more than one, is $15.00 each) but please remember….the more pets, the harder to control them…remember the old saying, that it’s “like herding cats!” and that is going to waste a lot of shooting time off your Ten Minute Clock.

WHEN WILL I GET MY IMAGES?
I will have them all ready for you to pick up here at the Studio by Friday December 14 at the latest.

SCHEDULING?
If this sounds good to you and like something you want to try, please e-mail me back at info@rickbacmanski.com with:
Your name, phone number & e-mail address.
Your pets name(s), type of pet, & pets age.

As inquiries and reservations come in I’ll get back to you via e-mail with a scheduled time for you to stop in, as we really don’t want 25 people and pets causing all kinds of interesting action around the studio while I’m trying to shoot!

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Like I said, this is the first time I’m trying anything like this, so I’m sure there will be some bugs along the way, or things I’ve overlooked. Your help and/or suggestions are, as always, much appreciated!

Lincoln, Lazarus, Stacey & Marc

Well time sure does fly by!
Way back in 2010 I shot Stacey & Marc’s Wedding, and 8 years later there are now FOUR in the family as we spent what started out as a rainy Saturday morning together at Elmira College. We had a whole lot of fun and captured some Really Nice shots for one of my all time favorite wedding couples, plus I got to know Little Lincoln….who is definitely QUITE a Character in his own right!!

Blue Barn Dresses

From a recent Wedding preparation shoot at White Hollow Acres in Wellsburg, NY…..just when you think that your surroundings might limit what you can create…..then all of a sudden you just SEE how things fit together so perfectly and can work out to create something very, very special.

Time for a “Little Lovin'”

I had a very uncommon weekday wedding yesterday on Monday, up at the beautiful Heron Hill Winery. Add this one to my growing list of “Firsts” as our Groom Nate was a very cool “Little Person”. I met Nate & Wendy in Binghamton last month was was immediately amazed at this guys Overgrown Personality and Sense of Humor! Following the ceremony, we had a lot of fun shooting some fun stuff down in the vineyard and also in the picturesque village square of Hammondsport, NY, and the weather Gods even spared us, as they held off the down pouring torrents of rain until we got back to Heron Hill and were enjoying our dinner under the cover of their huge tent!

“When you gotta go, you just GOTTA GO!”

So a few weeks ago I’m shooting Kelly & Joe’s Wedding down in Binghamton, NY and I’m out on the Golf Course and while I have the Bride & Groom & their Gang walking ahead of me to our shoot location, I saw our little Ring Bearer heading off into the weeds. Then, in the Hazy Glow of the Evening’s Fading Sunset, out of nowhere the Golden Showerstorm appears!!!
You just can’t make this stuff up!!
Nice underpants too! Oh to be a little kid once again!

….and she said YES!

Saturday morning I found myself up in Penn Yan at 10:00 AM! YES….10:00 AM @ The Garrett Chapel!
I had a prearranged rendezvous with Yusong and his lovely lady Emily who were up from NYC. She was totally unaware of what this journey, to the far off reaches of “The Bluff” would hold in store for her.
So he did drop to one knee and ask…..and she smiled and said YES!

If Looks Could Kill….

While editing a recent Wedding Shoot this one made me laugh out loud!
What could she be thinking??
