Professional Photo & Concert Day Schedule

Exciting Announcement:

We have a high quality photographer coming to do a professional group photo of each orchestra. This will be accomplished when everyone is dressed up, and we have our best attendance, on our concert day, April 25 at Box Elder High School, after rehearsal and before the concert (or for NUYCO before their rehearsal).

The fee for this is $10 each. This means every member of the orchestra pays! We will collect the money and give Barr Photography one check. Please write checks to LBSS or pay in cash. I will bring a list to check people off, and you can begin bringing money this Saturday. We need it all collected this week and next. 

When it's ready, the photo file will be made available to everyone via a link online. This means you can print as big and as many as you want, at whatever photo lab you choose, or share the photo online. Because this is a digital file, we must have everyone's participation. If we make it optional, it would cause otherwise honest people to do dishonest things. This also takes care of past distribution issues.

As as side note, this photographer is from Australia. I promise you will like him. Just the accent makes him cool. We will plan to shoot these photos outdoors, but if the weather or lighting is uncooperative, they will have studio equipment with them. We can be assured of a great photo, folks!

They are also willing to do some individual images.  Let me know if this is something you might be interested in.  Your individual image would be a fully retouched single pose digital file, $65 per person, each with a 15 minute time slot. You would select your image on the spot and they would then retouch and deliver it to you personally. The schedule for this would depend on which orchestra the student is in and what their other obligations are for that time frame. If there are a lot of people wanting to do this, another day may be scheduled, but we would need to know asap.

Have a look at their website: www.barrphoto.com and read their attached letter.
