It has been a very long time since I last updated my blog. I really just rarely know what to write in here.. I've been trying to refocus my website, which, if you're reading this, you've likely already seen what I've done. I've been trying to make the website more focused when it comes to my photography.. Instead of having headshots, portraits, weddings, events, boudoir, modeling, etc etc.. I removed a lot of that stuff.
When it comes to photography, the main thing that I make my money off of, is doing headshots for people.. Whether business/corporate headshots for small business owners, or people who just want new profile pictures for Facebook and other social media sites. Considering that is a big part of what Tooma does, I felt that there wasn't enough of the website to represent that.. So you will see a lot more posts focused on those specifically, although my blog, Facebook, Instagram, and to a lesser extent Twitter (I am no good at updating Twitter) will still see a wide range of my photography, because lets face it.. If I only shot 1 specific style for the rest of my life.. I would likely go insane. lol
So recently, I have been focusing on doing more headshots because what was originally on my website is getting a bit older, and I feel that it doesn't represent the quality that people can expect when they come to me.
I've separated my portfolio into 3 groups, which could potentially become 4. Headshots (which may end up with a side group labeled as portraits to separate the business headshots, from the portraits that people like for social media), Editorial, which is more fine art portraits.. (the type of things that you would see in a magazine) which is always what the majority of my old work would fall under, and Conceptual, because I have really loved getting into shooting cosplay, and other stuff where I can try to bring a whole new world into my images.
I've been trying to keep busy since my last post even if I haven't really had much to update.. There's been some issues that need attention that have made it so that I haven't been shooting as often as I would like to get to. Eventually those will be fixed up tho, for now, it just sucks tho.
Anyways, above are a few new headshots that I did with my new backdrop. To the left.. part of my shoot with a great friend and local model Kimberly.. I've gone to a punk show, I've burnt some flowers for Valentines day, I've gotten accepted as a photographer for the next Runway for Hope fashion show, taking place in March. I don't even know what else I missed..
I apologize for the lack of posting this last few months, it's been a rough time but I've been trying to keep busy.
Thank you all for following, and hopefully I will be able to post some amazing stuff for all of you to enjoy! You guys/girls are incredible and I'm so grateful to have you following my work
