Self publishing: Choosing a photographer

Everything has been photographed now for my in progress book and I thought I would do some posts about the people that I am working with and why I chose them.

Choosing a photographer was by far the easiest part of the entire process. There was no question in my mind, no need to research anyone else, it had to be my lovely, talented, knitting designer and incredible photographer friend, Carrie Bostick Hoge.

Carrie has such an amazing eye for composition and keeping it simple while showing off knits. It is silly how much more I like my knits after I see her photos of them.

Here are some examples of her work from past shoots:

Photo for Liesl Cowl designed by Carrie.

Photo of Rocky Coast designed by Hannah Fettig for Coastal Knits.

Photo of Idlewood designed by me.

And all of the photography for Quince and Co.!!!! Here are just a few-

For more of Carrie’s photography, check the Quince and Co site here-

And her beautiful, beautiful blog here-

I bet you can now see why choosing the photographer was so easy!?!

I’llย  be adding some more posts along this line as we lead up to releasing the book in September.

Thank you for visiting,
