GreenStPhotography Relaunched!

Welcome to the official re-launch of GreenStPhotography on the web! If you have been following this blog recently you have probably noticed almost weekly changes to the design.  That has all been me editing the look of the blog as well as how it was organized to get ready for the launch of my newly designed website.

The plan going forward will be to use each website for a specific purpose.  The webpage will act as my portfolio; it will be updated least frequently, but will have links to some of my current ongoing photography projects.  Flickr will be a place I will load much of what I am shooting currently, the projects I am working on, and some of my favorites from my archives.  The blog will be a place I will share my thoughts about photography as well as a place to share my favorite images.  I plan on doing a monthly article that will either feature a recent shoot, tutorials on post processing, camera and film reviews, and possibly the occasional interview.  I will also post a weekly favorite image from my archives or just what I shot last weekend to show you what I am up to.

So here is the link list, please book mark one of them or all!

Next Friday (the 8th) I will post my first monthly article.  I will walk you through a recent family portrait shoot I did and discuss some of my tips for this type of shooting.

Here is a new image for you from where I work.

All the entire TOYCAM Book Team Blake, Bill, Jose, Jason, Gregory, Ben, Leah, and myself are pleased to finally announce the publication of the long awaited book!!!!

We would all like to extend a heart felt thank you to the entire toy camera community who supported this project from the start almost 16 months ago to now. None of this could have been accomplished without all of your enthusiastic support.

I would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the entire book team for your dedication to this project. You have helped make this project much more than I ever envision 16 months ago when I proposed a book project on I can't tell you what an honor it was to work with all of you!

Ok so here are the links to purchase your copy of the book:

Purchase the softcover version - CLICK HERE (SOFTCVR)
Purchase the hardcover version - CLICK HERE(HARDCVR)

For more information about the book and project checkout the WEB PAGE! The page will have more content soon so keep checking back in.

On another note, you may or may not have heard that the final copies of the book I received had an issue with the cover (see the image below and notice the stripe of dark blue around the illustrations that should not be there on the bottom book). We believe we have corrected the issue, but as the team has already spent quite a bit of money on proofs already we have decided to release the book without ordering another round of proofs. Ben is confident that there is no way this will happen with the new books. But if you do see this please let us know ASAP.

Finally if you purchase a copy please do send me your reviews and comments. You can post them here or send the to me at The team plans to add a review page to the website so get your reviews in!

From the entire team, we hope you enjoy the book as much as we enjoyed putting it together!

TOYCAM - a slight delay

I just got the shipping notice from Blurb. My copy of the book is scheduled to be delivered on the 16th. Since we made changes from the proof copies. I wanted to spend my money to ensure that all is well with the book rather than have all of you order copies only to then tell you we found a major issue.

So I am pushing the official release date to the 17th. Keep in mind this is only if there are no major problems found with the printing. Judging by the proof copy I don't see any problems.

I am sorry for the delay, hopefully this is the last one I have to announce :)

Thank you all for your patience!
