Blog | Stan Dunlap Photography, Hendersonville Tennessee

so far this spring this was the first full week of no rain and great tempts which made for a busy time. One of my shoots was a Senior Portrait session with Katie. We choose the Town Square of Springfield to get a little of the old town casual feel. I shot natural light, ambient plus a reflector and for some images I used a profoto 500 with a beauty dish and sock (care to guess how I lit each image?). As Always I used a Nikond5 and the lens were Nikkor 24-70mm f2.8 and a Nikkor 85mm f1.8.

The sunny skies made Katies blonde hair pop and her natural beauty shine. We had a great time cruising the square and I think that comes out in her photographs.

This is Jill... Senior Portraits... Nashville TN

Last week we went to Nashville To get some Senior Portraits of this young soccer player (Soccer shots will be coming in a later post). We got off to a rocky start with mother nature throwing some lightning and rain our way! The storm was short and it actual cooled the temps and humidity down so we had a good shoot. Here is some examples of the shots we got and of course keep looking for the outtakes! Thx

Are you interested in our High School Representative program?

We offer representative programs fo high school seniors on a school be school basis that enables the rep to possibly earn a free Senior Portrait Package. You may have heard about this program, but incase you have not, I will explain. I started the rep program as a way to advertise my senior portrait photography to high school students by high school students. Basically I have photoshoots with my reps and supply them and their parents with low resolution web ready jpeg files that can be posted to social media. When they post the images they acknowledge me in the post so their friends and family can see my work. Hopefully the people that see the rep's post will ask them how they can get in contact with me to book a session and the rep gets a referral. If the rep gets 5 referrals they get a free senior portrait package. If they get 4 referrals they get an 80% discount, if it is 3 they get a 60% discount, and so on. If they get no referrals they get a 20% discount. 

There are a few restrictions, you are agreeing to have your senior photographs made by me, you agree that you will not be photographed by another photographer during your high school career and you must have fun.

I do limit the reps to one or two per high school depending on the size of the school. Also, I must have a meeting with you and your mom so they are aware of what is expected of a rep and give their permission.  I do have a contract that you and your parent sign. Usually the reps are selected on an annual basis and I begin accepting applications in the fall of the school year for the next years reps. If you have questions you may call me at 615-415-4601.

Another Creek Senior Portrait session with... Merideth

Red Hair, blue eyes and not afraid to get wet. This SCHS Cheerleader had an awesome shoot in a creek this week. The plan was to get wet at the end of the shoot but as you will see in the outage photos there was a slip and a split second from taking a spill. However, she recovered and all was good. Below are some examples from the Senior Portrait shoot and further on are some outtakes!

Below are the outtakes!!! We always have fun.
