Feather-Tales, LLC is a small business, based in Lakemont and Johns Creek (Atlanta) Georgia, owned by Kathy Hamdy-Swink. In business since 2005 , Kathy sells framed artistic limited edition photography, boxed sets of Awesome-Notecards, calendars and other gift items featuring her images thru resellers, galleries and directly. With an eye for making the ordinary compelling, attention to detail, and patience to get a shot 'right' - she's known for simplistic with awe photographs with reflective points of views. She enjoys creating thought provocative titles for her artistic work. Her photos have graced 2 magazine covers, grace many homes and commercial walls including hanging in the State Capital building. One photo was honored & selected for The American Still Life Exhibition at The Bascom in Highlands, NC, and another macro floral photo won 1st place in the profesional division of the Bascom's 2013 Mountains in Bloom photography contest.
Feather-Tales also provides on-location freelance photography to individual and commercial clients. Her specialties include commercial buildings, commercial landscapes, wooden boats, lake scenes, family and pet portraits and floral photography. Most commercial clients hire us for portfolio photography for marketing purposes. Kathy's 20+ yr career in marketing helps ensure clients needs are matched to both their desired output (online and/or print quality photos), their target markets(prospects). Clients photos are uploaded into an indivivual (password protected) gallery on Feather-Tales' Zenfolio website (Zenfolio is an online photo gallery application). That site allows for easy collaboration between client and photographer to select favorites for marketing or print use. The Zenfolio app can also host a client's custom slide show set to licenced music that can run on a client's facebook page or website. Client's can easily share their own selected favorites from their gallery with their customers or with project collaborators. At the end of a project, clients are given all digital files: RAW masters, high-res and web-res Jpegs. If clients are working on marketing or magazine photos - print producdtion ready files - TIFF or PDF high res files will also be created. We are experienced sending large high resolution printer ready files (too big to email) and working directly with graphic departments to meet our clients needs.
In addition to photography, Kathy provides marketing brochures and freelance copywriting services.
A portion of our profits from Awesome-Notecards sales goes to help a college scholarship fund for the Lake Rabun Foundation.
Please feel free to contact us. We look forward to helping you!
