White Christmas!

Posted on December 23, 2011

It’s that time of year again. Chilly weather, goofy sweaters, stockings, snowmen, reds and greens, oh and presents! Heck yes we love Christmas time…who doesn’t? Here at our lovely Seattle location, the Studio 3 team’s been getting our dose of all things Christmas, decorating, shopping, loving each other, and all that jazz. There is one thing we’re missing a bit of though and it’s one of the key ingredients to a classic white Christmas (hint: it’s the white part).

Here in Seattle, a fluffy blanket of snow makes for a real love/hate relationship. We LOVE to play in it, turn it into cute snowmen, throw balls of it at our dearest friends, and catch it on our tongues (missing school because of is also pretty great). We HATE walking through it, getting it in our socks, when it turns to slush, and most of all driving through it. We don’t see each other much, snow, and us Seattlites and the Studio 3 team was feeling the need for some snowfall around the workplace. So what’d we do? We made it snow, of course!

One of the perks of being a photo studio is having props galore at our fingertips, so our holiday parties, aside from being super fun and wild, are always beautifully decorated. Check us out below in our new photo from this year’s party. We pulled out our favorite Christmas props and got warm and cozy under the studio snowfall. Some things of importance to note and think about: Chris’ tiny cup and huge mullet, the mystery of what Alex is afraid of, and our little plant friend that came to hang out for the photo.

We had a blast and can’t wait for all the family and friends time coming up in the next few days. And of course, we can’t wait to get through that wrapping paper to all those tempting new toys. Here’s to hoping you have as great a Christmas season! Happy Holidays from Studio 3!

Studio 3 Wishes You a Safe and Happy Holiday!

Posted on December 23, 2011

One of our favorite times of year is discussing everyone’s upcoming holiday adventures. This year we decided to send out an image not taken by a Studio 3 photographer, but by our Studio Rep in Portland. The image below was used as our Studio 3 holiday greeting card and sent out to all of our clients in both Seattle and Portland. The original image was inspired by the beauty of Banks, Oregon. Here are a few words from Lee Mendelsohn our Studio 3 Commercial Photo and Video Rep in Portland, Oregon.

When I moved to Banks, Oregon after living in Dallas, Texas I was in awe of the stunning scenery and colors in the beautiful countryside right outside the city. If you’ve ever been to Texas then you completely understand! I drove on this road daily to work and have taken pictures on this road in virtually every season.  When the winter came and we got a light dusting of snow I had to stop my car right there to capture this shot. I used my Nikon Digital SLR camera with 18 – 200mm lens to capture this image. The thing I love the most about this photograph is the S curve in the road, the composition, and the beautiful, contrasting colors!

In order to make this a more holiday appropriate image the Digital Post Production team took over and added the Snowflake, Arizona sign and removed some of the power lines. This helped to tie in the holiday spirit. I look forward to sharing more of my nature images in the future. Images like this give me a  ton of inspiration to get out there and shoot more NW beauty!
