Have you ever seen commitment?

Impressive Images Photography stands out from the crowd because of our commitment to do whatever it takes to please our clients.  The before and after shots below show the challange that I was presented  by a magazine editor recently.    The building in the background was under renovation with a crane, port a johns, trash compactors, etc. in front.  I hid as many of those distractions as possible with the peoples bodies, but you can still see unwanted elements beside and between their heads.  Through the power of photoshop I was able to clean up all the distractions and earned the rights to the cover of a local magizine.

Jim Barber, a portrait photographer in Macon, GA, along with 10,600 other photographers attended the annual Imaging USA convention produced by Professional Photographers of America.  This convention is a combination tradeshow, print competition and educational workshop.  There were educational tracts for wedding photographers, family portrait photographers, as well as business oriented subjects.  I learned new lighting techniques, new trends in wedding photography and family portrait photography, new equipment and products available for my clients.  This ongoing education is one of the commitments that I make to our customers.

Impressive Images Photography launches new website

Our old flash based website has gone the way of the dinosaur.  This new style website will be much easier to find in the search engines.  As you may or may not know,  Impressive Images Photography is based in  Macon, GA and offers our clients “Beyond the Ordinary” Portraits, Products and Services.  Because I have expanded services to 3 product lines, I have developed 4 new websites:  – A full website dedicated to our wedding photography services.       – A full website dedicated to our photography services for businesses.        – Our updated, original website with an overview of all our services.   – A brand new website featuring an overview of all our services.


Here’s a pop quiz for you:  What does BTO stand for?                                   If you guessed Beyond the Ordinary, your right!

Jim’s birthday celebration

The Pippins (our daughter and her family) took me out to dinner at the brand new Smokin Pig resturant (Macon Mall) for my birthday on Friday.  The birthday festivities were great, but that’s not all, the food was fantastic!  It’s been a long time since I enjoyed a meal this much.

In case you haven’t been, here’s what you’re in for:  I had their 30 piece large shrimp special.  As if 30 shrimp isn’t enough, they sweeten the deal with a salad bar, 2 sides AND a dessert bar.  All that for less than $13.  Everyone at the table had “to go” boxes (this food is too good to waste).  You’ve got to try this place at least once.  I’m already planning for my next visit:  I’m going to have the prime rib sandwich with all the trimmings.

Look below for some pics I took during dinner:

Posted in Impressive Images launch party > big success.

I had one great time last night at the launch party for a brand new website called  This is going to be a great resource for brides all over GA, but especially for brides right here in middle GA.  The party was hosted by the gang at Brilliant Linens at their new location 844 First St.  Brilliant Linens should be your first stop when shopping for decorative linens for receptions and business functions.  Great people to work with for any event.   Impressive Images was there and got some great shots of the action.

The Brickyard at Riverside is in the Spotlight.

The monthly luncheon for the Central Ga. Wedding Pros was held at the Brickyard Country Club on N. Wesleyn Dr.  I’ve never been to this facility before, but I look forward to going back.  The general manager greeted us individually and the meeting room we were in has 3 window walls overlooking the golf course.  The meeting areas are very spacious and comfortable.  I’ve included a collage of pics to show you more.   Contact the club at 478-477-6765;  you won’t be disappointed !

Photographic training with a master.

Hey all.   My long time friend, David Ziser, passed thru Atlanta recently with a photography program called Captured by the Light.  David is known internationally as a great wedding photographer and dynamic speaker.  He spoke for 5 hours on the “ART” of wedding photography.  It’s a concept that has been pushed aside by all the wanabees that have flooded the market.  They are the ones that would rather take 2,000 or 3,000 shots hoping that 80 or 90 will be good;  rather than learning how proper positioning and lighting can create great shots every time.   He also discussed some cool new products that we’ll be offering our couples.   Call Impressive Images Photography soon;  I’ve got some new things to offer YOU.   478-737-2244

Jacksonville (FL) trip.

Linda and I took a very relaxing trip to Jacksonville recently.  We’ve never been there before; but we’ll sure be going back.  There is so much to do, see and photograph.  This trip we concentrated on nature by going to 9 state parks.  See the collage below for a pic of what they call the “boneyard”  (a collection of skeleton trees.)
