I hope you are all doing well out there! Things here are busy as a bee and I have so many things to share.
To start, I am shooting a project this weekend that I'm very excited about. This work (which I describe as Lord of the Flies meets the military with a twist of Lost Boys from Peter Pan) is a fleshing out of my Last One Standing series (there are a couple of shots from that series below). I was asked to show this work in a couple of months at a gallery here in Maine, and I needed more pieces to fill the space; thus the shoot. I will also be submitting this series to FOAM Magazine's Open Call this year. FOAM is a premier magazine for artistic photography, so a win here would say a lot about the caliber of work I'm producing. Cross your fingers for me! I'll be posting some of that work very soon.
What else? Oh! I think I mentioned last post that I have started collaborating with a very talented videographer (and friend of mine), to produce short videos of my photo shoots both to show what goes into these shoots and to use for promotional purposes. The first video from the Westworld shoot is up over on Vimeo and I'm very happy with how it came out for a first go. I have put a link over in the right sidebar of the blog directly to my Vimeo page, so you can view videos as they go up over there at any time. Another exciting chapter of Jessica Beebe Photography has begun, you guys!

And speaking of exciting chapters, I have also started offering gift certificates for my photography services. Why? Because people were asking for them and your wish is my command, obviously. Haha. But really, if you're local to Maine and you want to give the gift of my services to someone you love, please contact me for gift certificate details. It's quick, painless, and I even custom designed and printed these nifty hard gift certificates that slip into a standard card or envelope. Weddings, babies, maternity, portraits, engagements, head shots: The Beauty is in the Details. Always.
But it's not all work and no play over here! While everyone in Portland was getting completely toasted yesterday for St. Patrick's Day, I decided to enjoy the bright, pre-spring light down at the beach between time with friends. I always notice how the light switches in the fall to a warmer, more horizontal place and this year, I've noticed it switch back to bright, direct summery light. While we're supposed to get a ton of snow tomorrow, I am still optimistic for spring very soon...
Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
