Off to Minnesota!

I’m off for a very quick trip to GraphiStudio’s US offices tomorrow in Oakdale, MN. I’ve flown through the airport, but this will be my first trip out there, so I’m looking forward to it!

I’ll be joing the Graphi team in a presentation to photographers. Looking forward to meeting lots of new people! Here’s the invite if you’re reading my blog and didn’t get an invite, I’d love to meet you! Just let me know, and I’ll make sure there’s room for ‘ya!

Hello Everyone;

We are going to be hosting a great photographer from New York City. Sophisticated, but instantly accessible, Jason Groupp’s wedding photography celebrates the individuality of every couple he works with. Having honed his style on the streets of Manhattan, Jason instinctively creates a sense of place in every client’s photograph. Whether it’s a free-spirited portrait of a newly engaged couple astride a motorcycle or a rare quiet moment shared by a bride and groom against the splashy backdrop of a Las Vegas cityscape, Jason captures the relationship between a couple and their surroundings. You notice the setting, but you remember the couple.

Jason’s striking visual style and ability to personalize New York City—to convey a sense of intimacy and connection between a couple and a familiar landmark—have earned him clients from around the globe.

A photographer since the age of 15, Jason attended the Fashion Institute of Technology’s intensive photography program while receiving hands-on experience shooting weddings for Rockland County’s Bass Photography. After graduation Jason expanded his portfolio to include commercial and editorial work. Soon, his expertise for clients like J. Crew, Conair/Cuisinart and Men’s Health began to inform his wedding photography, which led to a distinctly intimate editorial style that has earned Jason a coveted spot as one of The Knot’s 2007 “Best of Weddings” Pick.
