Photo A Day 2013

365 days of photos in the life of a Saskatoon photographer.

I'm having a baby!


Hello Saskatoon! So, I'm sure some of you noticed that I disappeared for some months following Saskatoon Blitz. I assure you all I have a very good reason -- I have been busy these past months working on my greatest work of art -- A little bundle of joy expected to arrive February 4th, 2014.

Photographers: If you are looking for a great way to announce your baby, I highly recommend having family hold a sign for a "family tree" project and then holding up the ultrasound. You can give the kid the images of them holding the sign later on, and the resulting images of them cheering are always very touching to have.



Photographers Log - Week 22 + Announcements

See what I did there?

Hello Folks! Due to a series of small misfortunes, my Monday announcement post is being grouped with my usual Friday blog post.

Saskatoon Blitz is almost here, and I am so excited to finally be able to announce that Katie Deobald Photography will be offering not one but TWO professional cosplay photography mini shoot events at Saskatoon Blitz.

For $25.00 you will get 5 poses. After the convention, You will receive one web resolution preview copy of each, and you can pick one of your images to receive in high resolution to use and print anywhere.

These events will be happening in the tropical courtyard on the main floor near the restaurant, and they are first come first serve so be sure to have $25.00 in cash on hand.

The Cosplay Photography mini shoot is happening on Saturday 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM and Sunday 3:30 PM – 4:30 PM.

I am so excited to be offering this mini-shoot event, but there is so much to see at Blitz I really recommend checking out for more information on the other panels and activities taking place.

I am very proud to be a geek, and to be a part of this team, and I can't wait to share some awesome photos from the event with you guys next week!


Photographers Log - Week 21

Hello Saskatoon! Our backyard garden boxes are finally coming up and spring is firmly here with summer shortly to arrive.

In other news, our new price list is up, complete with a new boudoir collection.

Anyone planning to attend Saskatoon Blitz should check out our table for some special savings on all the new collections.


Photographers Log - Week 20

Hello Saskatoon! At last, winter is truly gone and behold! The garden is planted. This was taken a day or two after we planted our strawberries. It is so wonderful to have growing things in the yard this year.

With only a few weeks left until Saskatoon Blitz I may be moving the date for these regular updates around a little until things settle down.

More interesting photography to share this week. I'm not sure what kind of retro bug got into my head when I did my self portrait this week but it is certainly unique from all the others thus far.


Free Comic Book Day - First images.

To the gentleman standing behind me making jokes when I took this photo: I am sorry I do not recall your name, but THANK YOU for the inspiration to Photoshop this.

More lovely images from this year's FCBD are in my gallery and on my Facebook with more on the way.


Photographers Log Week 19

Hello Saskatoon! As promised, here is version 2.0 of my Melisandre cosplay.

Below are the rest of my images for this week.

More fun photos from Free Comic Book Day are also on the way, so be sure to keep an eye on the Facebook page for those.


Photographers Log Week 18

Hello Saskatoon!

I had a great time last week at the Geek Summit in Regina. We met many lovely people, all of whom I hope to see again in June at Saskatoon Blitz.

My costume for the event was Melisandre from Game of Thrones.

Version 2.0 of that costume will be seen next week in my photos from Free Comic Book Day.

Also included in my images this week is an in progress shot of our garden project this year. (Thank you again to my best friend for bringing the extra power tools and helping with construction. You can see her in the progress shot below.)

Sadly there are no photos of the look of maniacal glee I had while drilling drainage holes in our garden barrels, but images of the finished product will be coming next week.


Photographers Log Week 17

Greetings, Saskatoon! This will be a short post as I am on my way to Regina today to do some promotion for Saskatoon Blitz! Tickets will be on sale from the Blitz table at Geek Summit happening from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM in the George Bothwell branch in the Southland Mall.

To see what I look like at 7:00 AM and other interesting photos, click on the thumbnails below..


Photographers Log - Week 16

Greetings, Saskatoon! Points to anyone who caught the less than subtle reference in my self portrait this week.

I'm about 90% certain the black bird I photographed this week was a crow, not a raven. That said, I'm a photographer not an orthnilogist.

While "Nevermore" would also have looked cool there, but it wouldn't have worked with the themesong currently stuck in my head.

To see more pretty pictures, including a word from our studio mascot, click the thumbnails below.


Photographers Log - Week 15

Hello Saskatoon! Amongst the chaos last week I managed to perform in a concert with the Saskatoon Choral Society, attend a rockin' meeting for Saskatoon Blitz, and complete not one but two rush orders of retouching, as well as making some much needed technical improvements to the blog.

As a photographer, I like to think my job is all about actual photography. In reality, a photographer's job can include all kinds of things such as cleaning baby poo out of backdrops (Shit happens. Hardy har har. Boo.. Bad joke.) or even nastier things like database optimization and back-ups.

Please click on the thumbnails below to see the rest of my results from last week. Today's regularly scheduled instalment should be coming soon. (Knock on wood.)
