MORE DETAILS  


My portrait rate is based on three essential factors: Hours, Skills, and Service.

HOURS: Unlike mass-market studios, the humanity and character of excellent portraiture is not rushed. I am willing to travel to ideal locations near your home, to spend several hours scouting, and many more processing your images to perfection. The shoot itself usually lasts about two hours. This grants enough time to change clothes and locations while still feeling relaxed and comfortable. This shows in the images. 

SKILLS: In addition to skills with photographic equipment, I have a signature style of professional editing that makes your photos stand out unmistakeably in terms of color, depth, and pop.  This level of character and beauty only comes from individual processing of each image. My clients receive two complete sets of digital images in both color and monochrome plus a selection of stylized versions, such as vintage film.

Skillful post-processing makes the difference between images that hum and photos that truly sing off the paper for years. Without expert editing the final images simply do not look "professional". 

Some photographers only custom-edit their portfolio pieces. This gives a strong first impression about their work, until you discover they "batch process" entire sessions. This robs clients of all the beauty that was possible and pledged. In contrast, my method honors the artistry of the craft; every image is individually honed to bring out the most in tone and color, as well as removing cosmetic imperfections.

SERVICE: Courtesy and professionalism is paramount. Service begins when you first contact me and it should never come to an end. I am committed to providing my clients the highest quality products while saving you money. One of the best ways to save is by giving you freedom to print images and make albums any way you want, with any service provider you prefer. No restrictive print-packages or gimmicky album money-traps. Read more about prints and albums here.

Thank you kindly for your interest. Feel free to call or write with any questions,
