Peterson and Marshall Engagement

I had the pleasure of photographing an engagement session for my best friend, Andrew and his beautiful fiance Jenna this weekend. Andrew and I grew up together in Waikoloa on the Big Island of Hawaii. It's been a few years since we've seen each other, and over a decade since Andrew visited Bend so it was so nice to have them visit, even if it was a short trip. I've known Andrew for 25 years and I have never seen him happier. Congrats, you two!

 

Engagement sessions and wedding photography are the future of my photography business. I have a year left to complete my Bachelors in Business Management at OSU Cascades. Upon completion, I will be a full time photographer, which is of course very exciting!

Thank you, as always, for reading and following my photo journalistic journey.

Please send all engagement and wedding inquires to iancsmythe@gmail.com.  

 

Sincerely, 

 

Ian

Tintype Photography

Tintype Photography

Big news! Well, for me it is. I purchased my first medium format camera a few months ago. I did so in the interest of slowing down the photographic process.  Moving from digital to film wasn't slow enough. My main purpose in buying a 4x5 camera was to learn the art of tintype photography. This process was very popular in the 90's; the 1890's. I decided to travel to Portland at the end of the month to learn the Tintype photography process from the one and onl, Ray Bidegain! I will be looking for volunteers who would like to pose for a tintype portrait as I continue to learn the process. If you're interested please email me at iancsmythe@gmail.com  

Don't know what tintype photography is? Here is a great explanation of the tintype process from the guy's at Tested
