What You'll Get
Freeze time and preserve images from your memory more accurately than you remember them with a portrait session with Misha Ashton, the talent behind Ashton Photography + Design. Today's Groupon gets you a one- to two-hour on-location photography session and a hi-res CD of your photos for $65, a $250 value. Ashton specializes in portraits, wedding photos, and fine-art photography, and shoots all fine-art photos on film, capturing the true beauty of the image with light, emulsion, and a skill that renders digital touch-ups obsolete.
Misha Ashton has eight years of professional experience and will make your photos a visual feast. You’ll get 60 to 120 minutes to perfect your poses on location, and a high-resolution disk that you can keep behind your 1997 Gold Glove award on the mantle. You can also opt to apply the $250 value toward wedding photography, including an engagement session (a $295 value). Click here to see some of Misha's work.
This package is your opportunity to upgrade the framed family photos that have been hanging in your parents’ home for the past 600 years. Now that you aren’t riddled with acne or plagued with a six-year-old’s gummy smile, split the cost with your sibs and surprise your folks with a more up-to-date snapshot just in time for the holidays.
There’s always an excuse to say cheese: you’re engaged, you’re pregnant, you graduated high school, or you lost your photographic memory. Even if you’re not commemorating a major milestone, you might need a professional headshot to further your career; actresses, authors, musicians, clowns, dancers, comedians, and other performers can all benefit from quality photos.
Note: Contact Ashton about specific suburbs for on-location sessions. Ashton will travel to locations in the greater Portland area.
Why It’s Illegal to Photograph The Moon
Photography was invented in 1908 for the purpose of shaming racehorses into running faster. Embarrassed at the implied speed of their still portraits, horse speeds doubled within a year. The new technology quickly gained popularity with myriad of other velocity-related applications, including the use of photography to shame children into growing faster. By 1950, the average height in the United States was 11 feet.
As a race of giants, Americans quickly outgrew the planet Earth and entered the moon race against the shorter Soviets. Unfortunately, once both countries had established their moon bases, the moon’s negligible gravitational pull gave the smaller, lighter cosmonauts an advantage, and the Americans were badly defeated in the First Moon War. For this reason, it is now illegal to talk about, think of, or photograph the moon.
