Lifestyle and Portrait Photography

Singles, couples, groups, families, children, etc. Formals too! Don't forget the pets!

All sessions are of the same high quality, differing only in the length of the session and complexity of the shoot. Pricing for a portrait session starts for as little as $150 for a 30-50 minute session. Longer sessions cost more but offer more images and more  time for clothing changes and poses or "looks". As an example, a typical 2 hour session might have 2-3 clothing changes and perhaps 3-6 poses or looks. It includes at least 14 fully edited images. No matter the session and number of images they will be delivered via your own personal gallery. All of the full sized images (and the gallery) may be downloaded and shared across social media or printed and if desired, selected prints can be ordered direct from your gallery. Images can be delivered on a USB flash drive for $35 additional. You may also buy the entire gallery of edited full res images for an extra fee. There is an up-charge to shoot on location if travel expenses like mileage or parking, tolls, etc. are involved.

Head shots and Business Portraits

Shot at any location you have in mind. I can usually find a location for something different too. Typically, headshots take about 25-30 minutes and cost $110 per setting. You will receive 2 edited images sized to 2048 px @300dpi  which are perfect for social media, business cards, and profile photos. Images are delivered via email or private Dropbox folder. A more involved "Headshot Plus" is a corporate portrait session consisting of full, 3/4 or 1/2 body coverage plus the headshots as described above.  The cost is $175; it takes about 45-60 minutes, and you receive 8 images total (includes 2 headshot images). Extra images are available for $25 each in all cases. 

Take a look at this link about the portrait process if you have decided to book a session, or are thinking strongly about doing so. I like to keep things simple. if you have questions, by all means please call or write - communication is fundamental to making this process successful and keeping a client happy! 

Commercial/Editorial photography

To date, my commercial photography embodies photographing products, interior design projects, catalog content, architecture/interior high-end real estate, advertising, promotional tear sheets, model comp cards, music, dance, fashion, and food. My editorial photography has been used for publication in books, magazines and across the internet. Its often sports oriented, or music oriented and/or for journalistic reportage and documentary work. Prices vary widely and are based on the type of work, it's use and the time to start and complete the project. Product photography is a mainstay and is priced very competitively, usually  based on the number of shots. I'm known for my quick turnaround and ability to handle rush orders.
