Meet “the new guy”…

Phil White

In fall of 2014, Phil White, formerly of Phil White Photography took a leap of faith to come join the team at the now, 8th Street Studio. Phil has been in the industry for well over 20 years, spending a portion of that as the lab and print manager for Idaho Camera. Phil is well versed in both the technical and the artistry portion of photography.

As a career photographer, Phil White has earned his Master of Photography with the Professional Photographers of America. He also serves as a board member for Professional Photographers of Idaho and Boise Music Week and has won many awards on both a local and international level. Phil continues to pursue his love of the arts and currently spends most of his time managing CsiPhotoDesign and helping Kelly keep her head on straight when things get crazy!

Phil has a low key and laid back approach that contrasts well with Kelly’s high energy enthusiasm. He is a great listener and works very hard to create custom artwork for families with older children and high school seniors, especially when it comes to creating unique sports composites for high school athletes! Phil also works well with Old Hollywood style lighting which we incorporate into our Bringing Classy Back line. Bringing Classy Back is a fashionable fusion of tasteful, approachable glamour and boudoir (you know, the stuff you’re not afraid to show your neighbor) with a unique vintage lighting style and a modern twist! Looking forward to showing more of these off soon! Please check out our soon to be updated Csi Photo Design website for more information!

What if being “unproductive”, was actually “productive”?

Here’s a repost from a fellow photographer’s blog that I found intriguing.  Being an “overachiever” myself, one of my biggest pet peeves is feeling “unproductive”.  I have often times worked through lunch just to catch up from less productive moments in the day and to squeeze out every last second of the work week to accomplish everything I hope to accomplish.  Getting up from the computer to use the restroom or even eat, can “feel” difficult when your plate is, figuratively, full.

What if “focus”, at least all the time, was actually overrated?  Overachiever ADD types rejoice!  ;)

This article, once again enforces that self-care (i.e. taking a break, eating, even a massage or pedicure, maybe?!) is NOT selfish.  If we don’t take care of ourselves, how can we take care of ANYTHING else.  So for any other workaholic mommy business owners out there who have ever felt “guilty” for taking a little you time… this maybe just what we need to hear.  Again :)
