John Blausey Photography LLC

Sonoma

John Blausey Photography is a full service studio and location photography company. The studio is located in Santa Rosa just north of Rohnert Park where we photograph individuals, couples and family portraits. Headshots are also a large part of our business. Retouching and restoration happen at the studio as well to save time in getting your finished prints and digital files to you. Location photography is very important to us as well. Your home, business or other special place can be the backdrop on your portrait, headshot or modeling portfolio. All of our equipment is portable and designed for the requirements of location photography. Our specialty in the studio is our black and white Family Relationship Portraits. These are unique portraits designed just for you and will be timeless treasures that will be handed down for generations to come. Of course we photograph in color as well, in the studio and on location. For those who want a completely archival process we can also use film for your entire session, creating negatives, prints and including digital files for sharing on social media. Weddings and engagements are one of the biggest milestones in your life. We photograph only a select number of weddings a year in order to give them the attention they deserve. From small intimate events to large full scale, multiple day and destination events we can photograph, retouch, print and design your archival custom album to save the memories of the day for ever.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

This is a fun question because there isn't really a secret to taking a great photograph. The secret is WHEN to take it. Great photographs tell a story and capture emotion. When you look at a photograph and it stirs emotion, makes you smile or cry, this is a great photograph. A photograph that is a representation of what happened that day or what people looked like that day may tell a story but the great photograph will evoke emotion.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

I love getting to know my clients before the project starts. Because I am capturing who they are and telling their story I need to know who they are and what their story is. Depending on the type of project, some questions might be:(Portrait) If today was a new chapter in your book, what would the bold print be? What are you passionate about?(Wedding) What first attracted you two to each other? What is the one thing about the other, you could not live without? (Headshot) What is the element of your job that keeps you going each day?

These may be just starters for the session.

What do you love most about your job?

There are so many aspects to being a photographer. Since the age of five I have been taking and printing images. It is my passion, who I am and how I see the world. I get to travel, be creative, photograph things most people only read about or see on TV like IndyCar racing, NFL football, movie sets, underwater caves once occupied by the Mayans just to name a few. The thing I love most is the people I have met over the last 30 years of my career. People who have become friends, mentors, colleagues as well as clients. It's all about the people for me.

What inspired you to start your own business?

When I was young I didn't know who to work for so I was a freelance photographer for marketing companies, corporations and individuals. I got a lead that Lucasfilm was looking for someone so I landed the job there. After many years the company was sold to Disney and they of course reduced the size of the company. It was then that I chose to go back to my first love and open my company up again. I opened my studio on Santa Rosa Ave at Todd Rd and have never been happier. Again it is all about the people.

Why should our clients choose you?

The short answer is because you feel a connection. Just about everyone has a camera today and can take a picture, a snapshot and that's great, Facebook and Instagram are for of those pictures. You hire me because you want something deeper, more substantial and emotional. You want your story told. Whether you are looking for a portrait, headshot or wedding photography you want more that just a visual representation of what you looked like that day. You want the "real" smile, the "real" tears and the "real" feelings to be captured and preserved. On a qualifications level, I am a Certified Professional Photographer, (CPP) certified by the Professional Photographers of America, (PPA) the oldest photographic organization in the world. http://www.ppa.com/cpp/content.cfm?ItemNumber=4255
