I’ve owned the domain since college. Three years ago I re-upped it’s registration and I contracted my good friend Greg Vilines at Webnormous to begin work on the site. Then a combination of producing an album, playing in a band, get married, and having his house burn down slowed Greg’s progress on the site a bit. A combination of helping with the album, buying a house, running a photo business, general laziness, and getting engaged slowed me down too. I know my excuses aren’t as valid as a house fire, but regardless of the timing, it is finally LIVE!
Greg built the whole thing from scratch and he did a damn good job on it. I know I was a difficult client at times but in the end we got it all worked out. There will be a few tweaks made in the coming months, but since it’s 99% done, we figured why not launch it? This will be a soft opening for my six blog readers and facebook friends until I get it 100% finished.
Keep in mind the new site isn’t going to be a replacement for the blog- just think of it as a “best of Alex the Photo Guy.” I’ll still keep you up to date with my crazy photo antics here on the blog, so don’t stop reading!
Let me know what you think! Many thanks again to Greg who did all the hard work. All I did was take a few photos. If you need a website, let me know and I’ll get you in contact with Webnormous.
The Schnorf | Hunt wedding was this weekend in Midtown Atlanta and it was so much fun! I plan on working on all the other fancy schmancy wedding pictures later (beautiful church btw)- but first, I was way too excited to get these up on the blog! Keri, my lovely assistant/fiance, was kind enough to help shoot this wedding with me and man (woman?) the photo booth. Keri works for beer and pizza, so she’s the best assistant I could imagine for the job. She was awesome, but so were her subjects!
And now without further ado- the Photo Booth! Available from Alex the Photo Guy wherever alcohol and sombreros are served… (p.s.- I recommend full screen)
Our good friend Greg turned 28 last weekend and his wife was clever enough to come up with the gift that involves snorkeling or scuba diving at the Georgia Aquarium with sharks, stingrays, and the like. It’s a pretty awesome idea and I know he’s excited. To celebrate this surprise gift, we threw him an ocean themed birthday party.
I just happened to have purchased a new Westcott Apollo Softbox and black muslin backdrop recently, so I figured we’d try a photo booth out. People at the party were weary at first, but with a few blue punch drinks and some water-themed props, they loosened up quickly. Here are the best of’s starting with our good friend, Curt:
