We recently had the chance to speak to Tyler Schmitt of Schmitt Photography No RX Hydrochlorothiazide, in Austin, TX about his studio.

When did you start shooting?
I first started shooting when I was about ten years old. Hydrochlorothiazide australia, My dad was a photographer who traveled the Indy car circuit during the 1960s and 70s and I got to hang out behind the scenes. From there, I started to develop my skills and decided to go to school and earned a degree in graphic design and photography, Hydrochlorothiazide japan. After that, 20mg Hydrochlorothiazide, I took a job as a graphic designer for a steady paycheck, but I also worked as an art director and opened my photography studio on the side. I started working full time for my studio in 2004, No RX Hydrochlorothiazide.

How would you describe your style?
Awesome, 1000mg Hydrochlorothiazide. I’d say it’s very fun, Hydrochlorothiazide uk, very spontaneous, and shows lots of energy. I try to make everything I shoot fun and genuine, 250mg Hydrochlorothiazide, which I think makes my images timeless. Hydrochlorothiazide coupon, I strive for everything not to be of the latest fad, but for things to be genuine. No RX Hydrochlorothiazide, I’d say I have a blend of modern, kick-butt style.

Who or what are your influences?
I live here in Austin and we have so many great photographers in town, Hydrochlorothiazide usa, so some of my buddies influence me. Hydrochlorothiazide overseas, There aren’t a lot of photographers’ blogs that I follow. I find influence from everything from fashion magazines to more classic photographers like Dorothea Lang rather than celebrity wedding photographers.

What do you love shooting?
I really love shooting the bride and groom getting ready – it’s a lot of fun, Hydrochlorothiazide paypal. There’s so much anticipation and there’s so much tension, but excitement, No RX Hydrochlorothiazide. Once the bride puts the dress on, 500mg Hydrochlorothiazide, she’s concerned about how she looks, but before that, she’s just having so much fun, Hydrochlorothiazide mexico.

What is the best part of the wedding day?
About 50% of my couples choose to do first glances, Hydrochlorothiazide ebay, and I really love that part of the day using the zoom lens and shooting from a distance.

Do you shoot alone or do you use a second shooter?
I have a few different second shooters, which is a really great thing about Austin, 40mg Hydrochlorothiazide. We have a lot of really good, 50mg Hydrochlorothiazide, young talented people from the University of Texas or other photographers who are starting out, but have open dates.

What gear do you use? No RX Hydrochlorothiazide, I use disposable cameras. Just kidding, Hydrochlorothiazide india. I use the Canon 5D Mark II. 150mg Hydrochlorothiazide, Do you have a favorite lens?
I’d say it’s probably the 85 1.2 or the 70-200 2.8.

Do you use Facebook or other social networking sites?
I use Facebook and I really love it because one of my favorite things is trying to friend all of my clients. I just did an engagement session and tagged the bride and groom in all the photos and I’ve been sneaking around and viewing their pages to see what their friends say about their photos, which is the most truthful way to get feedback, No RX Hydrochlorothiazide. I also do a lot of family portraits because of my wife and two little ones, 10mg Hydrochlorothiazide. My wife takes care of the entire business side of my studio, Hydrochlorothiazide canada, but being a mom, she will set up playgroups with her friends and will hand out my business cards. As long as I get one mom out of that play group, 200mg Hydrochlorothiazide, then I know I’ll get more. 30mg Hydrochlorothiazide, They’ll share everything on Facebook and then I get referrals. No RX Hydrochlorothiazide, I’m definitely conscious that people use Facebook and I use it to my advantage.

Do you have a favorite venue or location that you love to shoot?
There are several here in town that I love. We do a few destination weddings a year, Hydrochlorothiazide craiglist, but I really love the Star Hill Ranch in town. 100mg Hydrochlorothiazide, It’s a country western kind of movie set, which has a very unique set of buildings. There is an old west saloon and main street there that they dress up to give a Texas chic look, 750mg Hydrochlorothiazide. There’s just so much to shoot there, No RX Hydrochlorothiazide.

What was the best business decision you’ve made?
About two years ago we got an actual studio. Hydrochlorothiazide us, It’s a place where I can have all my meetings and have samples of my work covering the walls. I’m by no means a studio photographer, but it gives me a professional looking space to meet with my clients.

Do you ever run promotions or specials for your clients?
About six times a year, we shoot mini portrait sessions. No RX Hydrochlorothiazide, We’re really lucky to have blue bonnets around here and we shoot in 30 minute blocks of time where families can come in with their kids and we can rock out. We also provide some specials on our albums from time to time.

When people leave your studio, what impression do you want them to leave with?
I want them to be completely confident and feel good about what they saw in my work and feel good about me. The lucky thing is that when people come into my studio, they know they’re going to spend money on wedding photography.  I don’t have to sell how important the photos are; they’ve already made that decision. It’s just a matter of who they’re going to pay at this point. I want them to feel completely comfortable with everything, No RX Hydrochlorothiazide. I encourage them to meet with other photographers, so come the wedding day, they are completely sold on me and confident.

What is your favorite Collages.net product or service and why?
I really love the Brilliant Albums. When they first came out, we had a few samples for bridal fairs in Austin and people would walk by and stop and look at them all the time. I love the little bit of metallic sheen - they have so much life. No RX Hydrochlorothiazide, A leather album, to me, is a missed opportunity when you don’t have the full bleed cover. I love them. Since my wife does all of our bookkeeping, one of my her favorite things is that we can keep track of everything in one place because we use Collages.net for everything. I also absolutely love the Holiday Re-Launch. When we first were a part of it year ago, I didn’t think people would really jump on it, but now we pretty much depend on it. I now call it my Christmas bonus, No RX Hydrochlorothiazide. We actually had our biggest reprint order ever recently due to the Holiday Re-launch.
