Big News – Introducing Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography Website!

2014 08 Fine Art Site - Deremer Studios Fine Art 0 Main

We’ve got some big news for you – we’ve just unveiled our latest project – the Deremer Studios fine art photography website.  It’s actually a bit like we’re coming full circle – back in 2002 when the seeds of Deremer Studios were just beginning to take shape, the business was built around fine art photography and the first component of deremerstudios.com was actually a fine art collection.  In fact, we’ve got what we call our ‘heritage site’ still out there if you drill down through deremerstudios.com.  While it was pretty cutting edge for 2002, the site is clearly quite dated and hadn’t been updated in a decade, so here we are, with a brand new site from scratch courtesy the WordPress framework and a great theme from Themeforest.  Add a couple of days of tweaking, playing with the code and a heaping helping of frustration, and you’ve got the site you see today.

And, I’ll let you in on a little secret – this new layout and all its full screen HD goodness is the template for an eventual rebrand of our whole suite of sites!  So, if you are keen on a bit of crowd-feedback, I would love to hear what you like, what you don’t, how things perform and all of that sort of stuff to help us make your experience the best it can be.   We hope you enjoy the Deremer Studios Fine Art Photography Website!

Sneak Peek: Disney Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Night

2014 05 Fine Art - Disney Seven Dwarfs Mine Train 01 Sneak Peek

This is a bit out of our normal realm of photography, but while on a family trip to Disney this weekend, we discovered that the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train was open during the evening for preview rides.  Needless to say, we were pretty excited, but there was only one problem – I had left our work cameras in the car.  So, with iPhone and a little waterproof camera in hand, I tried my best to get some descent shots to share with friends and followers alike. But, because of the very low light, the results weer lackluster.  Fast forward 24 hours, and we made a special trip to ride again, this time with our professional gear in tow.

2014 05 Fine Art - Disney Seven Dwarfs Mine Train 10 Sneak Peek

So, here’s a photographic sneak peek of Disney’s great new ride before it opens!  Let’s start with the line – which was about 60 minutes long.  As Disney has began to do, there are several great game stations with interactive screens (above) and fun activities that help the time go by.  You can see photos of each station in the gallety below.   The ride itself is about as quick and slithery as Thunder Mountain – though smoother thanks to the suspended cars – and it also has a slower portion in the middle that takes you on a tour through the Dwarfs’ gem-crusted mine (below).

2013: The Year in Photos

2013 03 Concours - McLaren Amelia 22

What a year it has been!  As I look back on 2013, I am overcome with thankfulness to all the many clients, couples and individuals who chose Deremer Studios to provide for their photography needs.  We know there are many, many photographers out there, and we count it a privilege to have been able to serve each of you.

This year, we had the joy of photographing over 200 events, weddings and shoots – so there are just too many to list individually (though you may see a photo or two from many of our shoots in the gallery below).  However if you would like to see our highlights from any given section, feel free to click on the links below.

Automotive  |  Architectural  |  Aviation  |  Commercial  |  Culinary  |  Fine Art Wedding

There are two particular shoots I would like to mention – for two very different reasons.  The first is our coverage of the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance for McLaren (top).  When I was young, the McLaren F1 was by far the most amazing supercar ever made – and I loved it!  So, when I received a call from McLaren, I was a little surprised and more than a bit excited.  This was a dream come true – and ‘mI happy to note we’ve been asked to photograph their presence at the Concours again in 2014.

2013 02 26 with Donna Genentech 22

The second shoot was for our friends at Genentech (above).  In February, we had the opportunity to photograph the 26.2 with Donna marathon on behapf of Genentech – who invents creative treatments for breast cancer.  As you may know, Bryn was diagnosed with breast cancer in late 2012 – thankfully her prognosis is great and she is nearly done with treatments – but one of the treatments she is undergoing is Herceptin – developed by Genentech!  Talk about a small world!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make 2013 such a wonderful year!  As always, please feel free to download – and if you enjoy our photos, please share this blog with your friends and help us get the word out!

EXTREME Weather – Jacksonville EF2 Tornado Photos, but Abiding Beauty

2013 08 Weather Jacksonville Tornado EF2 02

What a Day for Wild Weather in Jacksonville, FL!  At our office, we collected 5.2 inches of rain in under 2 hours!  And if that weren’t amazing enough, just a few miles down the road, a quarter-mile wide EF2 tornado touched down and caused extensive damage.  Tornadoes and waterspouts are somewhat common to our area, with one or two a year, but it is extremely rare for an EF2 tornado to hit northern Florida.  Thankfully, no one was killed or seriously injured, and the Tornado was only on the ground for a half mile or less, but as you can see from the photos, it caused quite the damage.  Be sure to look at the gallery to see the 2×4 imbedded half way through a second story wall.

2013 08 Weather Jacksonville Tornado EF2 10

However, the day was not entirely marked by destruction. As I was headed home after shooting the aftermath of the tornado, I saw this amazing afterglow from the sunset.  Amazing!  Enjoy the photos – and of course, feel free to download as HD desktop wallpaper below!

Amelia Concours 2013: The Preview & The BIG News

2013 03 Concours - Pre 02

On Monday, we were arriving at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island for a corporate event (post coming soon) when I stumbled upon this little gem – a 1960 Ferrari 250 GT.  This car, along with several others were there for the annual Orange Blossom Tour, put on by Classic Motorsports Magazine.   Around the resort, everything is beginning to take shape, with the RM show tent being erected and the special auction area setup for the big weekend.  As in previous years, we’ll be shooting the 2013 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance on behalf of the resort.

2012 03 Concours P2 01

And now for the BIG news – McLaren, the British supercar manufacturer of such venerable giants as the F1, and the stunning MP4-12C above, has hired Deremer Studios to cover their display for the Concours.  As a young adult, I was borderline-obsessed with the then new McLaren F1 – the worlds fastest production car with a top speed of 241MPH.  So, having the opportunity to spend the weekend with some of the folks who brought us that car will be rather thrilling.  Stay tuned for some great cars on the blog sometime early next week!
