Tosha Francis is the first to send us images of her Studio Look Book magazine, yay! Tosha writes, "I was so excited when the Studio Look Book came out I literally squealed like a kid on Christmas! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for but wasn't able to spend the days/weeks/months to develop it. Mine started out as a product guide which blew my mind and evolved into this handy wedding magazine that I give to all my wedding clients who book a wedding with me. It was so easy to design. It is tucked inside this neat little welcome packet I put together and when my clients see it they go ga ga over it. They really appreciate having everything together in one packet and not have to contact me for every question like when payments are due, what's my balance, when do I see my photos, etc. All the details are there, from start to finish with some nice little goodies too. Next, I am going to make the same guide for my portrait clients along with the original product guide the Studio Look Book was designed for. I can't wait! Thanks Design Aglow!"
Thanks for sharing, Tosha. You have inspired us today~
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
