I've sent out a billion emails to BCC clients/recipients. Unapologetic promotion.
We are happy to announce our services will be available to you at the 2012 Blade Show.
The benefit of a professional image will promote you in a number of ways:
- Large clear print for your portfolio
- Crisp website image for email or display
- Record of your work for posterity
- Potential inclusion in publications
- Guaranteed: Thousands of views on the internet Forums and on my website. I ensure this.
- A professional image shows you take pride in your work
Submission information to Editors, and our 3-year unchanged pricing schedule can easily be found in the following SAFE link.

We MAXIMIZE exposure for every client, giving you the best value for your photography fees.
SharpByCoop Website Gallery or THIS BladeForums Handmade Gallery or the CKCA forums, too.
Look for our lobby posters to set the tone:
I will be assisted by my wife Susan, and my adept and talented friend/professional photographer: Buddy Thomason.
We will be, as usual, located outside of the Show Hall at the far end of the Atrium (next to the seminar rooms) at Boardroom #1 (BR1).
It's a REALLY exciting four days. We will arrive on Thursday midday to set up and will start later in the day.
All work will be photographed in the order the submission sheet was received, and we will pickup and deliver the knives at your table to allow the knives maximum exposure.
Unlike makers who's work is finished at Blade, mine begins there. I will work non-stop for the four days until Sunday afternoon, shooting and capturing the images on my hard drive. I spend a LOT of time on individual lighting for each piece and will not have the time to process prints properly at the show.
Proofs and prints are emailed and mailed out within a week or two. Your patience will be rewarded.
I would love to offer a welcome for a brief handshake, at the very least. My wife will then shoo you away and you may talk to Buddy all you'd like.
The Blade Show resumes about a week and a half after we return, as we display your images proudly on the most popular knife forums, and always through my website.
Thanks for reading this. See you there!
Jim (Coop) & Susan
