The portrait project
Professional Studio Photography Sessions starting at $180.00.
These are actual images from previous portrait sessions.
What is this?
Typically when you need professional photos taken (for whatever reason), you tend to awkwardly ask friend who's a photographer or who just happens to have a nice camera. If you want to book a photographer plus studio for a portrait session, it can cost around $700 and you need to book a minimum three hours to secure the photographer. Nobody really needs to spend that long taking portraits. Most private photo sessions can be covered in 45 minutes, even including an outfit change. That's where this project comes in.
Who is this for?
- Professionals who want a great photo for industry trades, linked in profiles and professional usage.
- Small businesses owners who want to replace the photo of them and their cat on their "ABOUT US" business page.
- Athletic Instructors (Yoga, Pilates, Personal Training) who need photos in action for their professional profiles.
- Families who want photos of themselves or their kids.
- Couples who can't afford a full engagement portrait session but are wanting to still have something for a save the date.
- Actors / Models / Musicians who are looking for an update to their headshot / comp card selections
Who is this not for
- This is not a full professional headshot session where you can expect 800 selects to pick from and then retouching afterwards. If you are an actor and choose to take advantage of this, please refer to the "How this works" section below for clarification.
- Sessions are limited to 1 person or a duo/family/large group (details below)
How it works
- Book One session that will last approximately 50 minutes of shooting. As soon as your session is over, we will go through the photos together and will pick up to 50 images. These images will then be post processed and edited. No retouching.
- Within 5 to 7 Days you will receive a dropbox link with your images! Any additional retouching requested I can refer you to someone who charges $30/hr.
