REAL Talk 41: Matt Hoaglin

April 9, 2020

Matt, along with his wife Allison, are the owners of Allison Ragsdale Photography based in beautiful Durango, CO and have been on this journey for over a decade together. After moving to Durango together, they ended up opening up the studio and used Matt’s expertise in marketing, teaching and management to build and grow their studio into what it is today. While their studio faces a lot of competition and everyone is in the market for a photographer, over time they’ve been able to discover how to refine and promote their product to attract and retain clients. Their goal is to share what they’ve learned with other photographers, help you focus your business and ultimately make a difference for your family while doing what you love.

REAL Talk 40:  Mari Kranz

REAL Talk 40: Mari Kranz

March 5, 2020

Mari Kranz is based out of Eastern Washington where she resides with her family of 5 and specializes in high school teen and senior portraits while also providing branding content for local artisans and creatives. Known for her fresh approach to photography and use of light, Mari aims to set her clients apart by not only capturing their unique beauty, but also by encouraging and empowering them in a way that allows her to capture the essence of who they truly are; fearless, confident, and free (in delicious light of course). 

She is inspired by light, textures, and the personalities each of her senior clients possess.

She believes in and emphasizes the importance of using your own unique voice and staying true to who you are and what you love. Whether you’re a senior client, fellow photographer or simply a human with a beating heart, her goal is the same. To lift you and encourage you on your journey. She believes we all have a creative seed under the surface waiting to be discovered and loves to encourage fellow photographers and creatives to find, nurture and exercise their own creativity. She hopes to continue to spread that message and expand in mentoring and teaching as she blazes her own trail through her photography journey.

REAL Talk 38:  Katie Hughes

REAL Talk 38: Katie Hughes

February 20, 2020

Katie Hughes is the Owner and Chief Editor/Retoucher of The Photo Editive, a boutique style outsourcing business for the busy photographer. She is also a nationally featured and awarded High School Senior Photographer, which has helped to shape the purpose and vision of The Photo Editive. 

 

With her experience working for 10 years as a Senior Photographer, Katie saw the need for a more client oriented editing outsourcing service for photographers. She feels that communication with her clients, updated techniques of retouching and an in-depth knowledge of the Senior Photography industry is KEY in providing a balanced and comprehensive editing outsourcing experience for photographers. 

 

Katie is passionate about outsourcing and the ways that it is necessary to build a thriving business, spend more quality time with family & help photographers find a way to work ON their business and not IN their business.

 

Outside of being an entrepreneur and photographer, Katie loves to travel with her husband, spend time with her children, and (almost) 2 grandchildren. She truly lives by the motto: “You can ANYTHING, but you can’t do EVERYTHING”.
