Weekly Wrap-up, Janurary 9th-13th

It’s January. It’s time to reorganize, get ready and get prepped for the year ahead – that’s what we’ve been up to this week in the studio. We’ll be making a pretty big announcement next week, so stay tuned for the good news.

Aside from that, we were working hard in the studio and on an editorial project this week – portfolio updates, server updates, organizing and re-organizing kept us all busy for the last few days. Keep reading to see what we’ve been up to this week…

The beginning of the week brought some printing… some extra, extra long printing. The super-sized landscape above is a photo of an oil refinery in Warren, Pennsylvania. Yes, it is 1 studio manager and 1.5 retouchers longer.

We worked late Tuesday night to fill the walls with our landscape prints. We’ve only got one more wall left and it’s already got a few prints going up.

We worked on an editorial project that took us to Penn State University in State College, PA.

After updating our website portfolio, Chris decided it was time for some light testing and a new bio photo (check it out on the about page of our site). Of course, I had to hop in for a photo also since the light was so sweet.t

As far as what you may have missed this week on the internet:

– We updated the portfolio and landscape sections on Chris’s website

 – Our former agent, Melissa Hennesy shared the meaning of life with us

 – We blogged about what goes on behind the scenes when it’s time to update our portfolio

 – It was technically last week, but we actually broke down how we spend our time as photographers

– Our good friend Dan Saelinger was featured on The Daily Edit on A Photo Editor blog

Last but not least…

Someone at Chris Crisman photography got a pair of glasses this week… you’ll probably spot them in the near future.

  1. Not really a blog posting, but a long shot…. I love your Oliphant backdrop, and have been salivating over some of Annie L’s backdrops for quite a while now. I contacted Oliphant studios and Margot told me that unfortunately they do not ship drops overseas (I’m currently living in Munich). I really wanted one especially because I was told that they are double sided (one warmer and the other side a cooler colour) and have decided to try paint my own…. What I want and I guess, is that it is a dark gun metal (grey / black) with a hint of blue added. How best would you describe the colour of your drop which I think is similar and I don’t suppose you know what paint colours it contains? Very much appreciated. Kind regards Gregg

  2. Gregg, thanks for reaching out. Sarah Oliphant is an amazing artist and really does nice work. We did a meaning of life blog post with her that you might want to read for some inspiration… I think it’s a great idea that you’re going to try and make your own since you cannot have one shipped – best of luck! I would say that ours is a medium grey base (think thunder grey seamless) with the addition of blue/cyan on one side and yellow/burnt sienna/brown on the other. We don’t know the exact colors or techniques though, we usually let Sarah work her magic. Cheers!
