PIN IT TO WIN IT! I want you to inspire my work. Follow my "Inspire A&R Senior Contest" board on Pinterest, and I'll add you as a pinner. Already following? Just comment on the picture of Abby on the board (Shown Above) and I'll add you as a pinner. Pin anything that inspires you to the board. Once a month through November, I'll pick someone's inspiration and use it to create their senior photo shoot AND give a $50 credit for prints. I do my very best work when I am inspired by things outside of the senior portrait industry. Abby's picture above was inspired by my own stress, anxiety and faith. Other favorite portraits have been inspired by music, paintings, books, fashion and nature. I want to create a portrait that says something about you, and is more than the standard senior picture. I want to create something that we haven't seen 100 times, so in order to be picked, BE ORIGINAL. Be creative. Don't pin someone else's senior picture. Pin things that truly make you happy, things that you are currently struggling with, things that give you hope, things that you love. Challenge me. This contest is open to 2015 AND 2016 seniors from any school. Winners must be willing to come to the studio in Durand, Michigan for their shoot. Contest is not limited to one pin because Inspiration and imagination are limitless.
