The most wonderful time of the year … for me

Share Random Photos Wednesday

Festival season officially began for me last night with the kickoff meeting of the Summerfest Street Team.  Anyone that knows me knows that I have a love of music that is somewhat … passionate.  And my love of the World’s Largest Music Festival is a part of what keeps me going through the long, cold winter here in Wisconsin.

I’ve been part of the Summerfest Street Team for several years – a team leader for the last two.  I’ve had such a blast getting to know the people that organize the festival and the fans that love it.  I can’t imagine not being a part of it.  Why do I love it so much?  There are many reasons – the music, the food, the people I meet.  The diversity of all of those things.  There truly is something for everyone at Summerfest.

If you want to know more about the festival go to summerfest.com and follow me on Facebook and Twitter (links below).  I will post updates, photos and let you all know where the Street Team will be so you come by and say Hi!  We always have some free tickets to give away.  Plus, this year we are hoping to have some events here in Madison.  Woohoo!

I’ll be sharing photos I’ve taken over the years on Wednesdays from here on.  Let me know if you recognize anyone on stage or off.

I still get a kick out of …

… seeing my work published.

The Delta Routine is one of the bands that performed at the Pablove benefit event in January.  The are a great bunch of guys and their music is awesome!  They have been out on tour for a bit so check your local listings and their site for a show near you.

Tuesday:  Share Art Photographs or Business Portraits

On this Tuesday I will be sharing a couple of my art pieces.  One is a few years old and one was is a newborn.  However, both started out as photographs or in the case of the Cog – three.  They were hiding but through many layers, filters, brushes and more – they surfaced.  

I have my first official art installation going up in Madison next month.  I’m kind of nervous but trying to enjoy this step in my career.  If you want to see more of my artwork please click on the tab above.

These are the days of our lives …

I’m kind of tired of trying to market my business.

Okay, five minutes just passed as I stared at that statement.  I’m feeling equal measures of panic and peace.  As a small business owner, a part of every day for the last 11 years has been spent trying to let the world (meaning Madison WI) know I’m here and to attract new clients.  I have the best web site designer who has created this beautiful site and I feel like I’m not using it to it’s full potential.  That ends right now.

Today marks the first day of the new blog here at sweeneysphotography.com.  I will no longer be trying to sell or market anything on the blog section of the site.  There are hundreds of portrait samples in the Galleries.  If you want to know services, prices or specials – please click on the tabs above.  There is a ton of information throughout the site and if it’s not – then send me an email or give me a call.  I would love to talk to you!!  Better yet, stop by and we’ll chat over some of my fabulous coffee or tea – I may even have some Chex Mix to share.

So here’s how the blog is going to look from here on out.  Each weekday I will be sharing my photographs.  Not just wedding or kids pictures, I will be sharing it all – even personal photos.  I will share a bit of the story behind the photographs and in the case of my “Art” – I may even be showing you all a bit of the process by way of video (but only if it’s a good hair day).

Wednesday is now:  Share Random Photographs From The Past

These were taken backstage while the stylists prepared their models for a fashion/hair show in Milwaukee WI at the Art Museum.
