Fine-Art Portrait Session Giveaway

A photograph can tell a story in a way that words simply cannot.  A photograph can tell you about a persons journey simply through their expression and connection to the camera.  A photograph can be an incredibly personal and powerful thing.

On the flip side of the coin, a photograph can be vibrant, energetic and full of life and love!  A photograph doesn’t have to be dramatic; if your story is happy and joyous your photograph will showcase that clearly.

No matter what your story, a photograph will tell it.

Let me tell your story.  Let me capture everything that makes you the person you are today!

.

So here’s what’s up for grabs:

2-hour portrait session with Ten·2·Ten Photography

including pre-session coaching and wardrobe consultation

available sessions include: family, children, high-school seniors, beauty & glamour, post-wedding bride and groom formals or Glam the Dress

15 high resolution images on DVD

Value: $500

How can you get this?

  • Nominate either yourself or a friend and tell me your story!
  • Your story doesn’t have to be sad or dramatic – it can be a happy story, an exciting story or even just a sentence or two – just tell me why you want your photos taken!
    • Here are some examples of things that people have been submitting:
    • Do you have three kids and need to feel special?  Then tell me!
    • Have you reached a milestone in your life and want to celebrate your excitement?  Then tell me!
    • Have you overcome something difficult and need a pick-me-up? Then tell me!
    • Do you put your heart and soul into your family yet haven’t had a photo taken in years?  Then tell me!
    • Do you have a son/daughter graduating from highschool/college/university and you’d like some photos of them before they enter the world as an adult?  Then tell me!
    • Do you have a friend that has a super awesome family yet doesn’t have any photos of them up on the walls?  Do you want to give them the chance to create some lasting memories?  Then tell me!
  • No matter what your story is, I want to hear it!

How is a ‘Winner’ Chosen?

  • The greatest thing about this is that there is no voting, no ‘liking’, no commenting and no campaigning.  This contest isn’t here to benefit me by gaining ‘likes’ or purposely begging for publicity – this giveaway is here to benefit you and give you a honest chance to win a free photo session with no strings attached.
  • Everyone’s story will be wonderful, but ultimately only 1 session will be awarded so after I receive all the submissions, five fabulous ladies will read through the stories (not your names, just your stories) and choose which 1 story they would like to see come alive through photography.
  • I will not be a part of the five fabulous ladies who are reading the stories.

When is the submission deadline?

  • Nominate yourself and all of your deserving friends no later than July 5th, 2013 at 4:00pm
  • Entries received after that time will not be counted.

When is the ‘Winner’ Announced?

  • It’s going to take our lovely ladies a few evenings (and maybe even a glass or two of wine) to go through all of the fabulous stories.
  • A winner will be announced on the Ten·2·Ten Photography Facebook Page, as well as at the top of this very blog post, by July 9th, 2013.

What else do I need to know?

  • The winner must be willing to sign a model release form for themselves and any other persons taking part in the session.  This ensures that I can tell your story to everyone who will be anxiously waiting to hear it!
  • I will contact the winner personally (with the info provided on form below) and they must reply to be no later than July 21st to confirm their participation and to schedule their session.  (There is, on average, a 4-6 week waiting period in between booking and the shoot date although in some cases, dates may be made available sooner.  Please keep this in mind when scheduling a session.)
  • Session must take place no later than September 30th, 2013. Due to our busy workload, session can only be postponed for rain and not rescheduled for any other reason.
  • Session can be shot in any of our standard coverage areas (Toronto, GTA, Durham Region and the Kitchener/Waterloo Region).
  • Our fine-art portrait services include the services listed above.  Due to the specialized nature of newborn and maternity photos, we are unable to offer those services.
  • The session has no cash value and is non-transferable.
  • Any questions or concerns can be directed to info[at]ten2tenphotography[dot]com
