I think most people appreciate receiving thank you cards or holiday cards because there is little physical mail that we receive anymore (I should say physical mail that we WANT to receive). This was a design created just for that. As a commercial photographer, I get the opportunity to work with a lot of really great clients on some really fun projects. What better way to say thank you than through a fun self-portrait! This image was shot in-studio as a self-portrait, which is not the easiest thing to do. Setting up lighting with no real subject and doing a ton of test shots, looking at the results on the tethered computer and then adjusting as needed, back and forth. The toughest part about taking this photo was getting the focus just right on the tip of my finger while not being able to see my focus reticle. It took a few shots, but I think it turned out great!

Looking for something similar to send your clients? Let me know! Working with a professional photographer can connect your brand to your message and improve the readers engagement with that message.

I hope you enjoy the behind-the-scenes video!
