Carmine Picarello Photography
Working with Carmine in his home studio was a very rewarding experience. He took time and care throughout the shoot. I am eagerly awaiting the finished product. I heartily recommend him and shall use his services again.Oct 4, 2017Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Business portraits are the only area where I have standard pricing. My Thumbtack response to a business, actor or modeling portrait inquiry spells out the rates and options from which an individual can put together a budget. Commercial still life (product or fashion) is more dependent on the particular details of the project as they are usually unique. It's beneficial to meet and go over the project. I ask questions and offer suggestions about how to get the desired result with the least amount of hassle and cost. I am well versed in Photoshop techniques and offer photo restoration services. Shooting on location is more expensive that in either of my studios. Multiple portraits on location are very cost effective. Please call for discounts.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?My clients tell me I'm easy to work with. No drama or high pressure. Many portrait clients start out by telling me they hate to have their picture taken or are always nervous or self conscious. I try to make the shoot fun. I show them I pay attention to details they might worry about and details they had not considered. I ask questions and provide anecdotes to put them to ease.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a BFA in theatre production and lighting design. After college I apprenticed to commercial photographers in different specialties. I spent years on staff at Macy's and other major department store advertising departments shooting fashion, home goods and furniture before starting my own company with a staff of photographers and stylists. I draw upon over 35 years of professional experience covering a wide range of photographic subjects.
