Detroit Michigan Opera Headshot Photography by Mary DuPrie I photographed Opera Singer Cree Carrico on Thursday.  I’m happy with the way it turned out.  With Opera headshots you have more leeway to go glam.    I still keep the eye makeup fairly light but I do the lighting and background much much more than an actors […]

Detroit Michigan People Photography by Mary DuPrie I’ve gone to the New York Expo for the past four years. Unfortunately or fortunately I’m not there this year.  Sometimes after big events like WPPI, New York Expo or workshops I actually come away not inspired but sad and depressed. Funky because it’s all overwhelming… it’s too […]

Due to Skyping overload tonight with  Toronto Boudoir Photographer Kathy Honeybourne my post is bare bones.  Kathy’s sensibilities and mine run parallel and she’s been a big help, so we have lot’s to Skype about.  We screen share and show each other fonts, brushes and all kinds of stuff… tangents galore. Kathy has a design […]

Metro Detroit Michigan Headshot Photography by Mary DuPrie I’ve posted a couple of images I shot last week for Elizabeth to send into the local modeling agencies.  I’ve shot her before so I didn’t feel the need to talk about what to bring… hummm.  We were shooting three looks, one being a headshot.  Mom showed […]

I like too much stuff.  It’s a curse.  How can I decide on just one thing… are you kidding.  One thing to define me, my taste, who I am!?  Impossible. Don’t make me, I don’t want to do it.  But wait, I have too… bummer Oh I like that better.  Love this, no wait, what […]

Branding Is Oh So Hard

Michigan Boudoir Photography by Mary DuPrie Branding is by far the hardest thing I’ve had to do.  I could pay someone to do it and be done with it,  but I just can’t.  First of all I don’t have the money and secondly I would want endless revisions.  I need branding for my glamour.  I […]

Detroit Michigan Baby Photography by Mary DuPrie. I took this image back in July 04.  I can’t remember her name (yes she looks like a boy) what a cutie.  I owned one large soft box back then and that was it.  I had no idea what I was doing, just faking it till I make […]
