UPDATE: Apologies for the slow-loading (if at all loading) blog yesterday. Why oh why would there be a server outage on the day I run a contest?  :)  The contest is still open through Friday, March 5th at 3pm. Thank you!


While the cat has been out of the bag on facebook and twitter for some time now, I have yet to announce the big news on the blog.  That's right, the Joyce Smith Photography natural light studio will be opening soon in downtown Wayne! I've looked longer than I care to admit for a space and am so happy to be giving up my part-time job as a commercial real estate stalker. I will be equally happy to leave my current position as renovation overseer as well.  Painting and lighting projects should be complete this week, and the beautiful white floors will be next.  Then the fun part . . . the cavalcade of furniture deliveries (think beautiful modern classics that are *also* kid proof!) will arrive. Stay tuned for details regarding our grand opening in April.  I cannot wait to introduce clients to the space and detail all of the wonderful advantages it will provide.  It goes without saying--though I will say it anyway--that I will continue to offer on-location sessions in addition to sessions in and around the studio. More details on everything studio are forthcoming!

And now, a little eye candy for my photographer friends. This beauty arrived in the mail yesterday, just in time for my birthday today. Happy Birthday to me indeed!  I cannot wait to play with this storied medium format camera. Some of my favorite blogs show off the art produced with this camera beautifully.  Check them out if you have time! And yes, watching my daughter look for the nonexistent LCD screen on the back of this film camera was priceless!  

Finally, a present for YOU on my birthday! I'm giving away one free seat to an extraordinary workshop.

Yes, you read that correctly!  Would you like to attend either the May 6th & 7th workshop or the July 10th-11th workshop?  If so, here's how to enter! One lucky winner will be chosen randomly and announced on the blog this Friday, March 5th.

1) leave a comment on this blog to enter once. Please note that comments on my facebook blog feed will not be transferred here--you must comment here. : )

2) if you'd like to enter more than once to increase your odds of winning, you may do either or both of the following:

-- tweet about the contest, providing a link to this blog post, and come back here to leave another comment saying you tweeted

-- if you'd like to post about the contest on your own blog, providing a link back here, that's good for an additional comment and entry as well

Ready . . . steady (keeping it British here even though, regrettably, I am from Florida : )) . . . go!
