Good morning everyone, just hoping everyone has a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday. The next few weeks for us are going to be spent on completely redoing our website.. It is in great need of a major facelift (it hasn’t been updated since June ’05) Hope to have it up and running by the next set of Holidays. To see more of our work goto FJ GAYLOR Photography

Dining Hall shots are some of my favorite everywhere we go. It is the best place to see kids having a great time at school.. Other than dorm life, it is for the most part the only place where groups of friends get together and really let it go for a half hour or so.. Here are a few from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX… To see more of our online gallery goto FJ GAYLOR Photography

As I’ve been saying for the last few months, it has been extremely difficult to keep up with the post production of our assignments.. Our delivery has slowed down tremendously this semester… This is something that is eating Fred and I up. I would love to be able to turn around completed photos in a day or two, but the way we shoot and what the client ends up with, it is impossible.. I know some shooters are able to do this, but not us… We do not go around shooting 8-10 “set up” scenes a day with models and “hand picked” students. 90-95% of what we do is “au natural”, so there are a lot of frames shot during the course of a day.. We have been averaging anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 shots a day (before editing, of course). Now multiply that by that by about 55 days of shooting in the last three months or so… You can imagine the volume of digital data that we have been dealing with. We usually carry with us on the road, two laptops with 100 gb storage, in addition to 2 TERABYTES of external harddrive space.. That is an awful lot of data.. Now it is 1:00 am on a Saturday evening (My wife is out of town for the weekend), I’ve been processing files all day, please forgive my rambling on and on.. We should be able to get everything out the door and on its way to end users by Monday.. If you would be kind enough to share with us the delivery time from your photographers and the amount of images you receive, I would be grateful for any information on how to improve our delivery.. Thanks so much and enjoy the rest of your weekend..
