Win a free photo shoot for you and a friend!

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Spring Fling Open Studio trail across Dumfries and Galloway (2nd to 5th of June - I’m Studio 6 in the brochure), I’m offering you the chance to win a free photo shoot for you and a friend.

Between now and the 5th of June 2012, all you have to do is ask people you know to visit and “like” my Facebook page – - and get them to leave a comment saying who recommended it to them (if you aren’t already following me, then you need to visit and “like” my page first. Once you have done so, just tell your friends to “like” my page and say who sent them).

On the 6th of June I will randomly select a new fan from the comments and he or she, along with the person who pointed them in my direction, will win a free photo shoot for them both.

The photo session will last 2 to 3 hours and the aim is create a series of images of you together and individually. We will explore a variety of looks and moods, and I will show you how we can manipulate the images in Photoshop – from removing stray hairs to making you look like a character from Lord of The Rings.

The final images will be put on a disc for you to print off as many as you wish, or send to friends and family.

You can share this chance with as many friends as you want – the more people who mention your name, the more chances there are for you to be involved in the photo shoot.

Please note: the photo shoot will need to take place in Dumfries and Galloway within the next 12 months – unless you are prepared to pay for my travel, food and accommodation for the photo session to take place elsewhere.

Makes me wish I had my own personal jet. :)

Best wishes with this project.

I'm with Hope...personal jet and lots of $$$s! But what a great opportunity for someone to have photos of themself taken by and a 2 or 3 hour session...fantastic!

Do you travel across the Pond?

In answer to Hope, Theanne and Debra - I'm more than happy to cross the Atlantic if someone (or a group of people) is (are) prepared to pay for my travel and accommodation. In fact I think it would be a lot of fun.

So if you can find several of you prepared to chip in together to meet the costs, then I'm happy to come over for a week or two and do several photo sessions to ensure everyone who paid gets their portrait :)

Just don't stay there if you do go.

Pat - I wouldn't worry - that would be a bit unlikely. Somebody would also have to pay to ship my family over too :)
