Deb Thompson Photography * Giveaway *

There's only a few things that compare to looking through the lens and seeing loved ones smiling back at you. For one split second, you click away & hope to capture that special moment you've just witnessed. Could this be you? Would you like to have a 1 hour photo chat with a professional photographer? The winner can choose the topic or even have it be a 'mish-mash' of everything! (ie: Starting a business, how to use a dslr camera, photo critique, photo tips). Deb will even pay for the phone call so no expense to the winner (or via Skype if that's more convenient).  

I’m just a small town girl living in northern Michigan who LOVES photography. I bought my first slr camera about 12 years ago…yes, that’s when film cameras where still the only option! I fell in love and the rest, as they say, is history. I’m mostly self-taught, but have taken workshops and classes here and there. When I started, the internet was not exploding with information like today. I learned through trial and error and have shot pro for the past 8 years. I now shoot digital (Canon 7d), but I will be pulling the film camera back out this year to reclaim my love of black and white photography.  My pro work includes weddings, newborns, seniors, families, and even boudoir, but for my personal work I love nature and landscape images. My love for photography has continued to grow and now I love helping others improve their photography and start their own business.

Starting in February, Deb will be offering individual photo mini workshops, either online or in person (depending on location)..so if you're not the lucky winner, stay tuned for the announcement on her blog!

My dream location would be Ireland. Do you think Deb would foot the bill to shoot us there? Just kidding.

I'd be very interested in learning more about taking natural. Especially how to use reflectors, diffusers, ect.
If I were to choose a dream location, I think I'd go for a vineyard. I can imagine some dreamy shots.

I shoot purely for fun, but I'd love to chat about how I can improve my photography by actually using the settings on my D40 :) And maybe chat about ways to freelance some.

My dream shoot? In a little town close to me, there's an industrial section that has mostly abandoned old warehouses with great colors. I've always wanted to shoot there.
