My apologies...it's been over 2 months since my last post. But I am back and I have some good reasons for my long absence!!
I have some really exciting things going on right now....:)
As many people know, I have been shooting over 40 weddings a year for several years now. Last fall, I made a decision to cut way back on weddings and focus on some other areas of my business.
I have been incredibly blessed to work with some amazing couples over the years, but I feel really good about the decision to take fewer jobs and start moving my business in a new direction. This is not to say that I am done shooting weddings altogether...I'm not....but I am definitely limiting the number I shoot.
That being said, I have created a new website! As you will see, there are no weddings on this new site. I am going to keep my wedding work limited to www.claremariephotography.com and eventually shift the rest of my work over to the new site. So, it's kind of a work in progress.
Check it out! www.clarebarboza.com
You definitely need a fast internet connection for the new site, otherwise it'll take a long time loading.
Because of the new direction my work is taking, I decided to leave Urban Unveiled.
This was a really hard decision to make. Sharlane, Jesse, Travis and I work so well together and have become really good friends. However, Urban Unveiled is a full time job and I really wanted to use my time focusing on some of my work outside of the wedding industry. I wish the three of them the best of luck and I know that they will continue to create an event like none other in this city!
So, what have I been doing for the last 2 months?
A LOT of portrait work, several very cool projects for fantastic local businesses, a couple super fun weddings, (to be posted soon), a great shoot for a yoga bag designer in Berkeley, and some personal work. Plus, I found out that Corbis sold one of my baby images for a 1-year exclusive-use contract. So, one of my photos will be in Walmarts across the country for the next year. Crazy, huh?
Lastly, I am up for a dream gig right now. I don't want to talk about it quite yet because there are a few details that still need to be worked out but, let me just tell you, IT IS AWESOME. Truly, it will be a dream come true for me, so please keep your fingers crossed and I promise to keep y'all posted!
Below are some favorite shots from recent shoots. It's a random mix of stuff, but oh well! :)
