August was fun!

We find ourselves at the end of another month. Not sure where it went but I do know that we’ve had a lot of fun ;) Everyone who lives here knows that September can be the best month. Amazing weather and beautiful colors top my list of favorites. However, September also means the end of summer. It’s a bitter sweet month! No matter what, we’ll be here. Hot, cold, wet or dry…..we love this place we call home :)

Below is a very small sample of what we’ve been doing lately. We have posted some new videos this month too. If you haven’t seen them yet….they are awesome and worth the few minutes to watch them!! You can see them here on our YouTube channel or by looking under this post on our blog!

Enjoy the photos and we look forward to hearing your thoughts!

More video! This time…..Cloey – Class of 2012!!

Some folks just have the ability to be in front of a camera. Cloey, is one of them! She was a blast to photograph. Beyond the photography I always enjoy getting to know the person. Their interests, goals, ambitions, and desires. Cloey has a great outlook on life and has big plans to make this a better place. We wish her the best of luck.

Now, back to the session! Wade (Cloey’s Dad) shot all the video of this session with our little point and shoot! It’s really fun having everyone involved and he did a great job! Thanks, Wade!!

Enjoy the video and let us know what you think!!

We look forward to exceeding your expectations!

Meet Rachel……. a.k.a Roxanne!

About 2 years ago I was down at the shooting range. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a big competitive handgun shooter. Rachel’s dad (Bob), comes down one evening and introduces me to his daughter, Rachel. We talk. We shoot. We go home. A week later I am back at the range and Bob drives up. He and his daughter get out of the truck. Me, being terrible at names, says “Hey bob”, “Hi Roxanne!”. She looked at me weird and says, “Hi Curtis!”. Since then we have been Roxanne and Curtis to each other. All of that to say that if you see any comments referring to ‘Curtis’ she is actually referring to me…..Chris :)

It has been a lot of fun but nowhere near as much fun as our photo shoot a few days ago! “Roxanne” was amazing and Bob was great to have there! He added a level of comfort and humor that was certainly welcome! All in all a great day.

Enjoy the photos and we look forward to any comments you have!!!

Another Gold Mine!

Many people have been here and some haven’t. Either way, I’ve never seen it rocked like this ;)

After conspiring for about a week Teresa and I made it out to this shoot late last week. The weather was beautiful, batteries were fully charged, gear was packed, Teresa had her wedding gown, hair and makeup done…… it was perfect. Then, of course, we got there and the work began! If you’ve never carried 100+ lbs of gear for a half mile over tailing piles…. I’ll save you the headache….It’s not fun! lol We both hated rocks that day. But, we made it, got the gear onto the dredge and got started. We scouted locations for light and scenery, I setup gear, she got into dress and we began! We had quite a few ideas but only so much time. If her poor dress ever gets back to looking normal again there may be a part 2!

The shoot went pretty well. I applaud Teresa for being as brave as she was (is!). I only had one idea that she looked at me like I was crazy! However, she agreed to do it in bare feet. Something about wearing 4 inch heals to walk out on a 6 inch “I” beam. A small misstep would result in falling at least 75 feet to a rock quarry! Fighting off at least a billion mosquitos, stink bugs and flies is normal around here. It just comes with the territory! The rotten wood decks, broken glass, and almost rolling off a ledge to an 80 foot drop…. not so much :) But, it was all part of our day. In the end, we got the shots we were after.

Taking the time to do photo shoots like this is really important to us. Initially, it’s a blast! But is also gives us the ability to experiment, learn and grow. Doing new things often sparks a new level of creativity! On that note, enjoy the photos and we look forward to your comments!

An afternoon with Ryann!

I think it was about 18 months ago…maybe more, that I met Ryann. We did her high school senior portraits. Since then we have done 3 more shoots. All of which have produced amazing photos!! Ryann seems to feel right at home in front of the camera and is always great to work with. While she was just home on spring break from college we got together for another shoot. We drove into the hills on the outskirts of Fairbanks for a chilly afternoon. Despite temperatures in the 20′s, the  ice, slippery boots, and deep snow….we had fun, and created some pretty cool images. Enjoy the video and I look forward to any comments you have!

Wanna be an Intern @ Frozen Image??

Now’s your chance! We get dozens of phone calls a year asking if we do an internship. We have considered this for years and are really excited to offer this to some lucky individual! We want to pass along the knowledge that we have worked so hard to achieve. This is an incredibly important industry that we want to ensure has a future. That being said, we are happy to announce our new Intern Program. If you have an interest in photography this is not an opportunity that you want to miss! Here’s what we’re thinking……

Our initial internship will be July – September 2011. The commitment will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday every week. Note the word ‘commitment’. We want you to treat this like any other responsibility. If you agree to this we expect to see you on the agreed upon days and times. If you are still in school we understand that these dates will go into the start of school. It will become an afternoon program at that point. Something we can discuss later ;) We chose these dates because we are extremely busy during this time and you will get to learn the most. Speaking of learning, what will you learn? Studio lighting and equipment, metering lights, natural light, mixing natural light with flash, posing, client interaction, advanced camera skills, how to use lighting modifiers (scrims, gobos, reflectors, umbrellas, soft boxes, grids, etc) and so much more. All of this education does have a trade off. There’s work involved. You will be assisting with every shoot. Setting up and moving lights, carrying equipment, metering lights, changing out backgrounds, helping clean up between sessions, etc. The best way to learn is to actually do it!

Why intern with Frozen Image? I’ve had a camera in my hand for at least 35 years. I started Frozen Image just over 10 years ago. We spend thousands every year on continued education. Our knowledge base grows on a regular basis as seen in our work. We have so much to pass along. If you haven’t seen our work, you can do so here: Our General Portrait site and our My Diva Within Boudoir site! Don’t forget to check the blogs on each site. That is where some of our most recent work will be.

Now, what you need to do is fill out THIS APPLICATION ……Soon! This application will be up for at least 2 weeks or until we receive the number of applicants we are looking for. I know you can’t wait to click the APPLICATION LINK so I will stop typing now ;)

We look forward to exceeding your expectations!

A fun shoot with Haley!

Last night Haley came in for a photo shoot so I could play with a few new ideas. It’s so awesome to have clients/friends that are willing to spend their time so I can play! Of course, she had fun too :) High School Seniors are in for a treat this year. We have developed a whole new (and fun!) skill set to create an amazing experience and produce images that will blow you away! As we mentioned before, video is also a new thing for us and we’re lovin it too. Get used to seeing videos like this :) We would love to have any thoughts you have about what you see here. Your feedback helps us grow!
