Finishing the year on a high note and starting the New Year off & running!
The last two months of 2018 finished on a high note for me and my Senior Photography. I generally don’t enter competitions but on a whim I decided to enter Senior Style Guide’s Hot 100. At the end of August I submitted a few images having few expectations with less than fifteen minutes to spare at the deadline. Once I discovered that globally there were 8152 photographers submitting I lowered my expectations a little more.
On Wednesday November 21st, the day before Thanksgiving I received two notifications. The first notification was from The Twelfth Year, they were featuring one of my images on their site! That was completely out of the blue! About 30 minutes later I received notification that I was selected as one of the Top 100 Senior Photographers Globally! Senior Style Guides “Hot 100”!
I was pretty much at a loss for words in describing how that made me feel, but I was definitely Thankful and it came at a perfect time of reflection and in giving Thanks!
Since then I’ve been fortunate enough to have been featured four more times with the last one being today, New Years Day!
The last shoot of 2018 I did with any of my Senior Model Team members was with Chaney. On December 10th We had a blast shooting several different looks for the Christmas and New Years Holiday’s. From that session we’ve been featured on Senior Muse and Seniors Best! Images from that session are below. If you want to see the other images that have been featured you’ll need to go to my Instagram Page…. @jimtincherphoto

Photo shoots are fun and I can’t begin to tell you what a treat it was working with these four (Serena, Emily, Rachel and Taylor) who are my senior models. They were a blast to be around!
Serena and Emily are 2016 Graduating Seniors from Dunbar High School in Lexington. Rachel and Taylor are class of 2017 Juniors from Franklin County High School in Frankfort. Each of these four are amazing in their own unique way and I can’t wait to tell you their story.

Aren’t little surprises great? Several weeks ago I (along with five other colleagues) was invited to have one of my photo’s as part of a permanent display for the Lexington Fashion Collaborative at LexArts in downtown Lexington. Wow…. talk about making my day!

It didn’t take but about a second for me to know which image I wanted for the display. It was one that I had shot with Gracie back in December. I did go through some of my other recent images that I really liked but I kept returning to this one.
Last night (January 23rd) at the first community meeting for the Lexington Fashion Collaborative for 2015 was the reveal of all the images going on display.
I’m thankful to be a part of this group, thankful for my friends and colleagues in this group, and thankful to Gracie for being such a wonderful model. I absolutely love working with Gracie.

Gracie Sapp – Miss Teen Kentucky USA 2013. From a photo shoot in December 2014. Gracie is my goto model, she’s amazing and I care so much about this girl. You can see more images of Gracie on my website http://www.jimtincher.com
I love my job as a photographer, I get to meet and work with so many different talented people. Each one has that something special which makes them unique. Sometimes along the way you run across a person that stands out just a little bit more than the others. There’s a connection that happens between you that’s really special, and you find that working on and developing projects is smooth sailing, and when it comes time to get the shot, it’s effortless.
I’ve been asked so many times, “what’s your favorite image”? Who do you like to work with the most? Who is your goto model? I generally don’t like those types of questions as I’ve enjoyed working with everyone that I’ve worked with. But to pin it down, then that answer is simple. If you’ve seen my Twitter, Instagram (both @jimtincherphoto) or my photography page you’ll notice that they are all covered with this girls face. I’m not sure how many models I’ve worked with in the past, they’ve all been wonderful. But when asked who my favorite person to work with is, you already know the answer. Gracie.
This was taken from a recent photo shoot. This image isn’t scheduled to be published but several images from that shoot are.
