Introduction: I create natural-looking, retouched portraits and headshots for discriminating clients that appreciate the importance of a polished professional image in today’s social media driven workplace. All high-resolution headshots are retouched to minimize blemishes and lines while retaining your natural appearance. Even with heavy corrections, you'll never look "filtered." I work with confident clients comfortable in front of the camera as well as anxious subjects that profess they would "rather have a root canal" than have their photo taken. I try to offer exceptional professional service at a reasonable price. I shoot until you are pleased with your image. By request, you can add a professional stylist to help with corrective natural makeup or exquisite glamour makeovers to make you look and feel flawless.

Traditional Studio Portraiture and Custom Outdoor Sessions: • Annual School Portraits • Traditional Graduation Portraits • Personalized High School Senior Sessions* * I am especially inspired by Seniors that would like to incorporate their passions into their personalized photo sessions.

Headshot Photography

Oh my goodness- what a gem I found! Everything about this shoot was done very professionally and with the customer in mind. Dave hooked me up with a hair and makeup person since my shoot was to involve several very different yet very specific looks. He was very responsive when I would shoot him an e-mail or a phone call. He was flexible on the days/times available. Also even though my shoot was a bit longer than most, I never felt rushed- he was very patient and willing to do particular poses over again or try more shots if I wanted to. A big plus was also that he allows you to keep all the proofs so you can always decide later to have another one retouched or even use an unretouched proof on your own. What a value! I highly recommend:)

David is an amazing photographer! Open communication before, during and after the shoot. He really listened to what I wanted! Very professional with the latest technology and state of the art studio! I got to view my shots as the shoot was happening to make sure everything was looking how I had wanted! Highly recommend him for any headshot/model shots needed!

Dave Rinker is an amazing photographer. He communicated clearly from start to finish. My photo experience was very comfortable and he constantly asked for my feedback during and after the shoot. He promised the magic would happen after I selected the poses I wanted, but honestly it wasn't magic, but a miracle. My author headshots are even better than I hoped for.

FAQs

  • 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 headshot sessions start at $175 for Standard Headshot Packages with Retouching. PLEASE CALL FOR LOCATION SESSION RATES. Corporate location headshots are possible and quantity may effect pricing per headshot. 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. High Resolution Retouching and Image Enhancement is generally $50 per image. This rate may vary at the photographer's discretion based upon the difficulty and/or print sizes over 8x10. It is highly recommended that all finished images be retouched. A large range of professional prints from Wallet to 30x40 are available, including canvas and metal media. Money-saving package printing is available when you order a quantity of sharable prints (Wallets to 8x10) of your favorite pose. To maintain the quality of my images, I do not provide hi-res files for DIY printing of portraits. Watermarked, low-res digital files for social media are included with print orders. If you create printed scrap books on-line, please feel free to discuss your hi-res image needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Just call or email to get the ball rolling! Provide as many details possible concerning your project. (If you get voicemail, please leave a message!) SOLO HEADSHOTS: Call or email for an appointment. I maintain very flexible hours to accomodate most schedules.
