Glamour Portraits-Before & After

Self Portrait-Cosmetic Surgery Photoshop Style

I'm a good sport and will allow myself to become vulnerable to express the value in post processing.  I was experimenting with self portraits and wanted to try different looks (High Key), but didn't have time to do hair and makeup.  I decided to try some Photoshop techniques that I learned through NAPP and Scott Kelby's recent "Light it-Shoot it-Retouch it" tour. The post processing power amazed me.  I realize now how plastic surgery can be addictive, as I added makeup-eyelashes-blends and even a lift or two...Just because I CAN "LOL"!

GW Thompson Jeweller & Pawnbroker Inc. CID

Scope of Work-Client Brief: The Thompson's have been operating in Hamilton for over 40 years. It is a family pawnbroker & jewelry business. GWT are the father’s initials and TAG are the son’s initials. The three balls are the universal symbol for pawnbrokers. GW Thompson Jeweller & Pawnbroker Inc. CID Development GW Thompson Jeweller and Pawnbroker   SYNOPSIS: Pawnbroking has become very popular in recent years and is a very commercial concept. AP started with some background research about the industry and fascinated by the historical & religious significance of pawning.  Because of the traditional value and family structure to GW Thompson Jeweller & Pawnbroker Inc., AP created three initial concepts based on the following criteria: -The operating company name was too long and needed to be shortened. The family name is a brand in itself and known to its customers as “Thompson's”. -Second generation now operates the company with the intention of third generation to take over in future years. -The universal pawnbroker symbol may be used by official vendors only, but is abused in some cases. This causes reputation to be questioned in the industry. Thompson's is a valuable contributor to its community and is an upscale pawnbroker & jeweler, therefore; the new logo needed to be distinguished and classy. -The Hamilton downtown location has been recognized for over 40 years. They have a red awning with yellow lettering above the storefront. Steeltown is known for its local support and black and yellow Tiger Cats colors. -AP design notes from brainstorm dynamic content session for brand connection [cincopa AkIAu1qHhzWY] [Click Here] to View More CID Designs

Composites & Personal Custom Projects

Composites: A photo manipulations process that blend multiple images to obtain a uniform look of one complete piece. I like to take peoples special moments and passions to create an impressionable image that they can enjoy for a lifetime. Composites can be team members photographed individually to produce one poster. They may also be a relevant background to the subject or multiple images to compose a single design.
