Update-Your-Profile-Pic PARTY! {contest}

SPEAK UP with a new profile pic & let your image speak for itself.

If you've been using that same boring profile pic for your Facebook or Twitter account, or even on your blog, it's time for an update.

Express yourSELF! Change that profile pic of yours and show the world who you really are.

In conjunction with the SPEAK UP! exhibit (at CSU Pomona from April 1-30), I am giving away a FREE "update-your-profile-pic party" to one lucky winner.

Here's how it works:

  • One lucky WINNER will host the party at their pad, where I show up with a background, lights, & props.
  • The host can invite as many guests as they think I can take pics of in a 2-hour period.
  • Some props will be provided, but guests should feel free to personalize the pictures even more & bring their own! (Or hosts can even designate a party THEME!)
  • Within a couple of days after the party, I will post the party images to the Suitcase Studio's Facebook page. Each guest will appear in a minimum of one photo, and that photo will be tagged with their name so it can easily be found.
  • Guests can keep & use those images that I post.
  • The host will receive a mini-book with all of the final images included.
  • Additional images & products may also be purchased from my online gallery, which will be linked to my website after your party.

Nitty-Gritty Stuff:

  • Open to local southern-California residents only (sorry... no long-distance traveling for this).
  • Each guest must provide me with their email address & facebook profile name.
  • Each person must sign a model release so that I am able to post their pictures up on Facebook.  They must also become a "fan" of the Suitcase Studio's facebook page so that I can "tag" the photos appropriately.
  • Please keep the props and images rated PG, as I run a family-friendly business. Any image deemed questionable will not be posted.
  • For the safety of all guests involved, please do NOT bring your pets to be used as props.
  • Images may not be modified in any way, and my logo must remain visible.
