It’s All Shiny & New Around Here

It’s been quite awhile since my last update to the blog, the web site, twitter feed… or just about anywhere online, not even so much as ping from me in quite some time.

That’s all changed now!

We have just launched our new main web site tonight. Must be all the coffee I’m drinking these days, but I’m burning up the hours with work and it feels great!

The new site might will have a few bugs in the system. I’ll try and get them worked out as I find them. For the most part, its all up and working (as far as I know). If you do come across a broken link, button, or find another problem please contact me and I’ll get it sorted out.

Be sure to check out:

  1. the updated portfolios; Products, People, Graduates.
  2. And the studio rental page now features an online booking calendar.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all of you. From all of us at Smash Photo Studio, Thank You for your support in 2011. We hope 2012 will be an even better year for you.

Griffin Photo Workshop

WOW! Have I not updated any photos in quite some time. So I have a huge back log of images that I could be posting here and just not sure why I haven’t. So today I came across an old shoot I did with our good friend David Griffin, he supplied the models and we supplied the studio and lighting. Here are a few snaps I took, as soon as I remember everybody’s name I’ll update the post.

Congratulations Jason!
Jason, we wish you much continued success in your modeling and acting career. It is always great having you at our studio. Oh and yes, that is our photo featuring Jason from a head shot photo session taken at the Smash Photo Studio, so maybe we had something to do with Jason getting signed *pats self on back*.
