Generally, a portrait or headshot, done at my studio, provides you with a digital copy of a minimum of twelve
"keepers," three of which will be cropped and color-balanced using Photoshop; one of which -- your choice
from the three -- will also been
extensively processed by professional "age-reduction" software to optimally
enhance the image: skin-smoothing; imperfection-removal, etc. In addition, you will be given a copy of the Photoshop
files and the images that result
from me using it.
All for a value-packed $150. A white background is $25 additional.)
My primary concern is RESULTS! That translates
to me NOT LIMITING your sitting to a fixed, or maximum, time.
It is one of the benefits of the low overhead I enjoy because I work from my home. I do not have to pay rent to a
commercial landlord so either do you through higher fees. Thus we will work together for however long it takes
to achieve the result you had in-mind when you arrived. NO OTHER LOCAL STUDIO WILL DO THAT!
If you would also like a print, I make them using an
Epson Professional color printer using
ink, on Epson paper. The charge for an 8 X 10 or 8.5 X 11-inch print, NOT mounted, is $10.00
Additional prints are also $10. Mounting on archival, 1/4" stock, with archival adhesive, is an additional $10.00 per print.
If you want more
than two prints, not mounted, I suggest using Costco.
They are processed very well,
on standard photo paper, at $1.49 for an 8 X10, regardless of quantity.
You choose the Costco location. Using your account information, I will download the printer driver for that location, optimize
the image to comport with it, make all the photo-account arrangements,
specify the order specifics, and upload
the prints and pay for them directly.
I, not Costco, can make a print up to 17 X 22-inches. The price increases with size.
Appointments require a $75.00 deposit made via PayPal. One re-scheduled appointment, made
with a minimum of 24-hours notice, is without penalty. Other than that, the deposit is non-refundable.
All remaining charges are due at the time that the deliverables are ready to be given to you.
If your portrait or headshot needs exceed the above or you want a price for an event or
or other work that requires that I travel,
call me. We will discuss the creation
and I will give you a firm price.
