New Studio in Film // Seattle Film Photographer // Seattle Studio Photographer

So, my big news this month is that I have a new studio. (!!!) Me! Little old me, in a studio! My good friend Jennifer happened to be looking at spaces and came across a rare open spot at the famed Bemis Building, and asked me if I’d like to share the space with her… it may have not been the most sound decision at the time that I made it (being my slow time of year and all), but I couldn’t pass this chance up. I can’t wait for you to see it! It’s amazing, with loads of natural light… which, you know, is a major requirement since I am no bueno at using flash… and right downtown, convenient for both my Seattle clients and my Kitsap clients.

Every time I step into the space, I fall in love over & over again. I brought one of my lovely muses, Enjoli, over for a play date so that I could work the light and see what comes of the fusion of my cameras and my studio… and I am just over the moon about the results. If I am not physically jumping up & down when I see these images, then I am jumping up & down on the inside, believe you me.

I am so beyond excited to share these with you… and to share the space with you! Please email me for details on when you can have your photos made there too, and for a limited time introductory rate! catherine@calimaportraits.com

Enjoli on Hasselblad 500c/m & Canon1v with Kodak Portra 400 & Kodak TriX 400, respectively; both rated at iso200.

On a geeky side note, and in other news… I sent my first rolls of film to Richard Photo Lab in Hollywood. I avoided this move for quite some time because 1) I wanted to support my local labs, and 2) they are much more than what I am used to paying. However, I finally gave into the powers of RPL, and although the amount I’ve spent there in the last month pains me so… I am so glad I did. They are the perfect example of “you get what you pay for.” This set was the first of many rolls that I sent their way, and quite frankly, they are so beyond my wildest imagination of what good film processing looks like… that I am pretty sure that they have my business for life.

ouch. and thank goodness. all wrapped in one.
