More Rach-Star than ever!

I just got back from a 2 day class in Corvallis, OR (part of which was spent at Reser Stadium, home of the Oregon State University Beavers... heehee.... sorry guys, is that really the best you could come up with for a Mascot? My Bobcat or Trapper would totally eat your Beaver... and don't get me started on Ducks!) Just joking all your OSU and OU types. Have to pick on you a little. I did pick sides, but I'm not saying which!

Anyway, here are some of the shots from my class - Shoot with Beckstead. It was a great experience, and showed me a few different ways to look at an area that may not be spectacular, but still find the beauty. It didn't hurt our models were pretty amazing as well, even in the freezing cold wind and rain, even the hail! Thanks Elisha, Kali, and Heather!

Wow, its been awhile!

Its been a crazy couple of months here at Rachor Photography! I've moved into and office/studio in downtown Bend and I'm loving it - except this first day:

Thank goodness I already had insurance and it ended up being very minor. But what a first day in. So I've been painting and decorating and everything is falling into place. I'm planning an early May grand opening and will post more details as we get closer.

Here is a more normal day. We are on the main floor, Suite 170. For you Bendites, stop by and see us! Someone is there most every day from noon to 4 unless we are out shooting.

I've also been taking some classes to make me even more of a rockstar then I was before! And lucky for me, my good friend Travis came out to Seattle from Montana the same weekend I was there! I promise, I went to class. And the Big Horn Brewery in the University district. Best idea ever: Apple store right next to the brewery. My computer now has a bright pink case!

Here are the highlights:

They have a great hefeweizen - sweet, but very tasty!

This is before Travis even started drinking his beer. It was a great evening and fun to catch up with an old friend as always!

We're gearing up for 2008's wedding season - but if you haven't booked yet, Don't Panic! We do still have a few openings, but call soon!

In other news, we're also in the process of launching a separate portion of our business. I will be back next week with a few more details. Until then... enjoy your weekend!
