Always a Student by Alexandra Gunnoe

So I've been pretty quiet on my blog so far this year.  So much has been happening and I wanted to make sure things were in place before I shared the news.

Firstly, I moved from the UK back to the Seattle area in December, where I'm originally from. This city has changed a lot from when I lived here previously and I'm so thrilled to be back, seeing it with fresh eyes.

A huge part of my motivation for moving here was the Communication Leadership graduate program at the University of Washington, which I had been researching for over a year.  And now I'm pleased to say that I have been accepted into the program; the degree I'm pursing is Masters of Communication in Digital Media, and I actually just finished up my first quarter last week.  I couldn't be studies are engaging and stimulating, and I've had the chance to use my photography in new ways.  As for my business, photography will continue to be my livelihood and my passion.  I can already tell my studies are changing the way I approach visual storytelling and it's incredibly exciting to think about how much I will learn by the time graduation nears.

So what have I been working on?

One of my most recent projects was a little film I put together while working with Pet Partners, a non-profit that provides certification and training for Animal-Assisted Therapy Dogs.  I had the privilege of attending several training and therapy sessions and learned a ton about how much these animals add to patients' lives.  My aim was to show what Animal-Assisted Therapy is, the kind of impact these dogs have, and what it takes to get your pet certified. I'm not very experienced in film so I still have a lot to learn here.

If you have a couple minutes please take a peek (and watch in HD)!

2015 Vintage Vehicles & Models Photography Calendar

From March through August 2014 we created a series of shoots featuring fashion models and UK vintage automobiles from the 30's, 40's, 60's and 60's. Each model was dressed in vintage fashion appropriate to the year of the vehicle. The top images were then collected and put into a stylish 2015 Calendar. 

***UPDATE*** We have almost sold out of calendars and only have a few left that will ship out of the Seattle area.  Please contact me through my website if interested.

Please read through my blog for the back story on each shoot.
