Christine Lasher Photography
I am a lover of photography who is trying to launch my business in earnest after urging by many over the past decade. My ultimate goal is to take the unexpected photograph that has a profound impact on the world. My more immediate goal is to change the life experience of my clients by allowing them to see themselves and the world we share through my unique lens.
Words that describe my photographs and the way in which I work include passionate, inviting, natural, unselfconcious, and real. I "see" people, things and places differently - use of angles, colors, themes; capturing emotions and raw, real moments are what I do best.
My photography has been used on the front page of the local newspaper to advertise theatre events. I have been sought after for commissioned landscape work and given creative license by these clients to find a "mood" or a "feeling" in nature and to capture it just for them. People fascinate me and I feel challenged and motivated at the thought of capturing the essence of them with just the limited use of this tool we call a light box.
I'm a single mother of four great kids who want me to succeed. I wear cowboy boots to every shoot but within minutes find myself barefoot with a high ponytail. I love being in the zone...loose with my camera and an idea.
My logo should be simple and easy to remember. Understated but beautiful. Just me.
My audience is varied but I will highlight a few examples.
Theatre - local theatre shoots for pre-production shots to be used in print ads, Playbills and TV spots.
Portraiture - individual and families, High School and college seniors, engagement photos, children and infants
Landscape - assorted commissioned work, all seasons, all locations
Sports - varied sports including equestrian events, NASCAR, youth sports (e.g. youth softball, track) and large format events (e.g. national cheer tournaments, etc.)
Looking for alternate design ideas. I would like all artists, based on my general overview above to submit original designs outside of my requirements stated below to give me an idea about things that perhaps I HAVEN'T yet considered! Giving you creative license. Just bear in mind...understated, beautiful, passionate, clean, simple, easy to remember...and let me see what you create for me.
** My original requirements were...
I envision my name on one row "Christine Lasher" (with the designed logo between the two names) with the word "Photography" beneath. Font for this should be a very delicate and slender print...NOT script for these letters [Note: I attached some sample logos that mimics this look...sample 1 is closest for this part]
One thought was to have a colored square in the middle with the capital initials "C" and "L" in it. These letters should be in some form of script with the "C" to the upper left in the box and the lower portion of the "C" becoming the upper curve on the "L" which would be situated to the lower right. [Note: I hand drafted an example to explain what I am after here. One has the letter A which is my middle initial. One thought is the convert this to a tripod with a camera in the center of the logo?.]
The box should be a pleasant color. I like the colors of sunrise...particularly something in the blue/green family. Another option would be coral. The lettering should be white inside the box which itself will be a solid color. For the portions of the letters that spill outside of the box (and I would like some portion to do this for both the "C" and the "L") I would like those portions to be the same color as the box itself. This font for the "C" and the "L" should be gentle and flowing. It should not be too busy or two heavy.
Another possible item to incorporate is a hummingbird. This has substantial meaning to me as well.
