Arts & Crafts Photography is my primary career specialty. I shoot pictures for a wide variety of craftspeople, most of whom sell their wares on the craft fair circuit. The better shows and festivals are juried, so my clients continually need top-quality jury photos of their newest pieces for the upcoming year's applications.
I have been the official on-site studio photographer for the American Craft Council's ACC San Francisco Craft Fair since 1981; at Roy Helms' Contemporary Crafts Market in Santa Monica and San Francisco since 1989; and at WholesaleCrafts.comís ACRE Las Vegas show since 2007. I am also a Certified Fine Arts Sales Representative for Dynacolor Graphics of Miami, a nationally-respected printer of postcards, color sheets, brochures, greeting cards, and lithographed art reproductions. I produce a full range of printed materials for many of my clients, performing the graphic design on my own computers.
Jewelry photography is a large part of my work, but I also photograph for painters, ceramicists, woodworkers, glassblowers, sculptors, paper artists, metalworkers, basket weavers, polymer clay artists, fiber & fabric artists--in short, my craft photography clients work in just about any medium you could imagine. I am continually amazed by the breadth of creativity and technical accomplishment I am called upon to document, and I thrive on the challenge of capturing world-class objets díart photographically.
I use the superb Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera for new work, and I can also digitize my clients' existing slides with my high-resolution Nikon CoolScan 5000 film scanner. Specific information about my digital imaging services for artists and craftspeople can be found in abundance on my jury-oriented specialty website, http://www.zappshooter.com, so please have a look.Additionally, http://www.gpostphoto.com is a portfolio site of my personal artistic work and stock photography.
