About this pro
I offer professionally retouched portraits and headshots to discriminating clients that appreciate the importance of a professional image in today’s social media driven workplace. All finished headshots are retouched to remove flaws while retaining your natural appearance. I work with clients that are confident in front of the camera as well as those that would rather have teeth pulled than have their photo taken. I try to offer exceptional service at a reasonable price. By request, I work with professional stylists that can help with corrective natural or glamour looks. Studio headshot services include: • Linkedin Headshot Specials • Corporate Professional Headshots • On-Location Corporate Headshots • Actor Headshot Sessions • Model Headshots and Portfolios • Glamor Portraits and Digital Makeovers Traditional Studio Portraiture and Custom Outdoor Sessions: • Traditional High School Senior Portraits • Personalized High School Senior Sessions • Annual School Portraits I am especially inspired by Seniors that would like to incorporate their passions into their personalized photo sessions. I can provide a full range of photo cards and custom wall print options by special request. In addition to portraiture, I also have 30+ years experience as a commercial photographer and photo editing of products, beverages and food. Visit my website for my commercial portfolios. I enjoy meeting new people and helping them through the uncomfortable experience of being photographed. I enjoy the challenge of capturing the bit of someone's personality they want to share with the world. Everyone has their insecurities in front of the mirror. I take great pleasure in my ability to capture your personality in a great portrait and magically minimize those issues through retouching so that they feel good about themselves.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My pricing is based off a Session Fee/Retouching/Print structure unless a specific offer is advertised. Studio sessions start at $125. Outdoor sessions may be higher depending upon the location and nature of the shoot so please consult me when planning your session. Session Fee includes photography time, image culling, digital proof preparation and posting images to your password protected on-line gallery. Retouching and Image Enhancement is generally $50 per image. This rate may vary at the photographer's discretion in some instances based upon the details and print size of the photo. It is highly recommended that all finished images be retouched. I offer a complete range of prints from Wallet to 30x40, including canvas and metal media. When you order multiple copies of an image, I offer money-saving package printing for groups of images 8x10 or smaller. To maintain the quality of my images, I do not provide hi-res files on disk for DIY printing. Watermarked low-res digital files from purchased portraits are included within print prices. If you create printed scrap books on-line, please feel free to discuss your hi-res image needs.
