What's New with Bellawood Photography?

A new website with a new look! I made the move to a new host and have been working on recreating new pages and content. I hope you like the new look and find it easy to navigate. On this blog page you will find news, samples of recent sessions, and other helpful information. 

Degree Finished!

As many of you know, for the past few years I was going to college full-time at the University of Mary Washington. Last year I graduated with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts (that's the one for old people) in Studio Art. It was quite an experience. I'm glad I did it. I'm happy it's finished.

New Photography Studio

It's been a dream of mine to have a studio in a commercial space and it became reality in September. The studio is now located in a wonderful commercial building off Route 17 (Warrenton Rd.). I initially moved into a temporary office but have since moved into a more permanent space. I'm still getting situated but am so excited to have a place to call my own and hope you come see it soon.

New Groups, Organizations, Affiliations

I have been a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) for many years but have recently rejoined the Virginia Professional Photographers of America (VPPA). These two organizations provide many services to photographers. The most valuable to me has been the educational benefit. They provide learning opportunities through seminars, webinars and conferences. This January, I attended Imaging 2018 in Nashville, Tennessee.   

I have also joined the Headshot Crew, a community of headshot photographers personally coached by Peter Hurley, a premier headshot photographer in New York. In February, I flew to California to attend the first conference put on for headshot photographers, Headshotmania. After that conference, several of us joined Peter and his Headshot Crew Mentors on a bus and traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada to attend the Wedding and Portrait Photographer International (WPPI) convention.  

I hope you find the information posted here helpful. I'm no writer, but I hope to share helpful information and some beautiful images. Thank you for being a customer, business partner, and friend.
