***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ***
Long Beach, California, April 1, 2010 -- After years of photographing children exclusively in black and white, Dodgen Photography is adding a new color to their repertoire - green. With so many companies going green these days, it seemed only a matter of time until photographers jumped on the green bandwagon, and Dodgen Photography is taking the leap in a big way.
Dodgen Photography's owner and primary photographer, Jeremy Dodgen got his inspiration for the change from photosynthesis, the process by which green plants use sunlight to synthesis foods from carbon dioxide and water, generating oxygen as a byproduct. Dodgen hopes to create a similar synthesis in portrait photography and be a breath of fresh air in a color-saturated portrait world.
While revolutionary in the photographic world, Dodgen points out that their is a long history of the use of green in portraiture, including some of the most famous men in United States history. Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson, Hamilton, Jackson, Grant, Franklin have all been immortalized in green.
Dodgen wants to assure his current, as well as potential, clients that this move is not just about the money, stating "we won't just capture green backs, we'll capture faces, feet, hands…the whole person."
There are definite economic benefits to the green initiative, including job creation. To help with the effort, Dodgen Photography recently brought on several leprechauns to develop just the right hue of green. It soon became apparent that there would be the added benefit of reduced carbon footprint, after all, leprechauns have really small feet.
Quoting a favorite actor, musician, and green advocate, Dodgen knows "it's not easy being green," but adds "when you see the green sparkle in the children's eyes, you know all of the hard work is worth it."
