Well, here I am writing words. Words in a box on the internet with the hopes that people will read them. Or maybe I’m hoping people don’t read them, I don’t know yet. For those of you who don’t know, I’m the Corey Keizer behind Corey Keizer Photography. I know, novel idea there with the company name right? Sorry, I’m a photographer, so I think that exempt me from having to be creative with words and stuff right? Anyway, after much hemming and hawing I decided I needed a blog for CKP. There are a lot of times where I have things I want to discuss, or chat about or just riff on and I need words to do that, words on the internet specifically. As you can probably surmise by the name of this entry, as well as the fact that it’s the first real entry and for the fact that it’s a new freakin’ blog when I’ve been in business for almost 3 years now; I’ve had some pretty major changes over the past couple months. I’m happy to report they are all somewhere between good and great changes, nothing on the bad side thankfully. First, as the people closest to me know, for the past few years I had a deep, dark secret. I WASN’T a full time, professional photographer. I know, shocking. I was in fact working an 8-5 to pay the bill while I built my business. No longer. CKP is my full time thing now. It’s all I do. And while I was basically working full time on CKP and working a full time job, I feel like my workload is the same, still 80-100 hours a week at 120 mph. Oh right, it feels like that because I’ve also partnered with my long time friend and co-hort in awesomeness to start a family oriented photography studio as well. It’s a whole different thing so I won’t go into the details here, but yes, two businesses now. Other than that, we’re a corporation now, serious business time, and we are branching out into new segments and niches so look for us everywhere. Oh, we’re also switching over to some new/different tech, but that is an upcoming post (foreshadowing!)
So, add this to your RSS feed or stop by every once and a while. I promise to keep this light and fun, but also totally professional… I swear. Cheers from Awesometown!
Here’s a quick snap from a recent shoot we did for Pactimo Clothing… Enjoy!
