Over the years, we realize that Facebook has become a good means to visually promote our ongoing work. However, we felt it lacked in providing a broad picture of every service we offered.
As such, we've decided to create a small campaign, via a variety of Facebook Cover images, using the "Keep Calm" theme.
We'll change Covers from time to time, to help trigger your interest in keeping us in mind for your future projects. Mind you, although we don't limit ourselves to the categories shown here, but they are a good guideline to what we do most.
Higher resolution of ALL 13 of these covers, can be seen.... HERE
We look forward to hearing from you, with all your project needs.

Since the 800 Million USD Powerball Jackpot was not won on Saturday Jan. 9th 2016, the estimated new Jackpot will be approximately 1.58 Billion US Dollars.
What better way to promote our page, than to buy a lottery ticket and share the winnings between the people that have liked our Facebook Fan Page?
Step 1 - Make sure you've Liked our Facebook Fan Page before

We greeted Valerie in our studios earlier this week, for a quick portrait session. It was her second visit in as many years, and we had forgotten how pleasant it was to work with her.
A few selected pics from this shoot, can be seen... HERE

Recent rumors have surfaced, in regards to the possibility of Canon coming out with a new flagship camera, in their Sports/Editorial line.
According latest report the Canon 1DX Mark II pre-production model is being tested by the photographers worldwide.
A very solid source let us know that the EOS-1D X Mark II will be in our hands no later than April 2016, but that Canon has yet to finalize an announcement date. So there’s no need to worry that this is going to be a Photokina 2016 product.
Take a look at the rumored specs;
- 24MP full frame sensor made by Canon – best dynamic range compared to all FF sensor available
- 14 fps in RAW + JPEG mode
- Advance Autofocus System (compared to the current 61-Point High Density Reticular AF)
- New Technology in Viewfinder
- Light-weight battery
- Large LCD screen OLED Display
- Dual DIGIC 7 image processor
During the Xmas holidays, we came across and fell in love with the works of Adrian Sommeling. We ordered the online tutorial, and gave ourselves the mandate to complete several of our own creations before the end of the first quarter.
We'll keep you updated as to what we'll have stormed up. Needless to say, our topics might include a few extreme sports ;)

As 2015 comes to an end, we take a look back and see, what we, at SNAPePHOTO have accomplished during the last 12 months, and look onward as to what we can aspire towards, in terms of goals for the upcoming year.
As most of you know, 2015 was our first year at being full time, and that was short-lived, as I've personally accepted a role in another field of work, thus multi-tasking the same way I had been, for the last 10+ years. No rest for the ambitious. There's 24 hours in a day, and we intend on working as many as we can.
A total of 212 different projects were accomplished in the past year. A tad short on the personal goal of 250 we had set for ourselves. Some took an entire week, others less than an hour, but whether big or small, we welcomed them all! We added "weddings" to our list of offered services in 2015, and based on the feedback received, we did a bang-up job. As predicted, we added people to our team, helping us offer our clients the best possible solutions to their needs.
Second full year of keeping a Blog. It's long, tedious, but well worth the time spent in exposure.
91 new Posts on the SNAPePHOTO Blog! (slightly down from 110 in 2014). Which could also be perceived as a good thing, meaning we had more work, and less time to post. Also, many more high-profile projects to which we could not "spoil" the launch for these clients.
We'll try our best to keep this trend going, and aim for approx. the same amount of posts for 2016.
More than 110,000 Hits in the last 12 months (up from a mere 5,000 hits in 2013). That tells us that people are liking what they see, and are coming back for more.
We managed to keep the website up to date, with a good quantity and variety of our projects, added new sections, and once again changed the visuals a few times to make it more appealing, etc...
With 82,966 Page Views, 42,366 Visits & 22,573 Unique Visitors to date, we're more than happy!!
2015 has been a quiet year for us in terms of acquiring new gear. We took possession of the 50.6MP Canon 5Ds as our main studio body, for modeling, product & culinary shoots. Traded the F/2.8 16-35mm lens for the sharper F/4 unit, and also the new 100mm Macro lens. We're ready to expand the list of goodies, as we eagerly await Canon's "official" announcement of a new Flagship "Sports body" in the new year. We've made good use of our drone and purchased a 2nd Inspire 1.
And of course, we're keeping the best for last... Our clients! 2015 has brought us a total of 12 new clients, and, some of them in new sectors of activity. For 2016, our goal will be to continue to satisfy our existing clientele, and add on average 1-2 new clients a month. Hopefully, you will be one of them.
On that note, we want to take this opportunity, to wish you all....
HEALTH, HAPPINESS, LOVE & PROSPERITY for 2016!
