Early each spring I try to get out at least once to photograph the South Dakota state flower, the Pasqueflower (Pulsatilla). It goes by many names including the wind flower, prairie crocus, Easter flower and meadow anemone. It is a sure sign for me that winter has lost its hold. Sure, we might get a snow storm after they bloom, but that snow is only a minor set-back and I'll be out crawling in the mud hunting down flowers and butterflies to photograph soon.
This year, I decided to look for the Pasqueflower at one of my favorite state parks, Sica Hollow. I shoot there quite often and this year I'll be very much focused on shooting there several times a month to document the changes over the course of the warm months.

But the spring refresh goes deeper than just getting out in nature to photograph the early flowers. This year, it is bringing to life the new vision of my business. I've cut out the weddings and portrait work which just weren't what I am about in photography. I'm ramping up more in the commercial photography realm to include more work with content marketing and social media consulting. I'll also be very focused on the ART of photography.
I'm also going to do one of the other things I love to do. Teach. This summer I'll be offering 1 on 1 photography classes. I suppose you could compare this teaching model to guitar lessons. We figure out where you are in your photography path and then together decide on where you want to go from there. For as long as it is valuable to you.
So, whether you are a business that needs photography or help with advertising, marketing, website or social media; or if you are a person that wants to learn more about photography, I really hope you'll reach out to me at 605-868-8810 or firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd really like to work with you!
I'll leave you with some more Pasqueflowers in tribute to the spring refresh at PJ Anderson Photography!
