A person's craft is only as good as her equipment. To offer the best work possible I invest in the best. My main cameras include two full frame Nikon D800 SLR Cameras with 36.3MP file and RAW format capabilities. They have outstanding performance in low light situations and a compliment of Nikon dedicated flashes and lenses cover every job. Additional equipment is rented on a case by case basis.
I also have a portable studio, including a selection of lights, props, and backdrops for when your job requires it. This setup allows me to provide a much more versatile and interactive photo booth. I provide links for guests to view and buy prints or digital files afterward.
I also have equipment for tethering my laptop to my camera which allows you to view the raw images at full resolution in real time. You will always leave the shoot knowing that you got exactly what you are looking for.
Photography and design go hand in hand. If you would like designs with your images for gifts, mementos or promotional items I would be happy to produce exactly what you need. I can also help with any other logo or packaging designs you may need. My portfolio of graphic work is available upon request.
I provide Pro Lab quality prints in wallet through poster sizes; available with gloss, mate, and metallic surfaces. Giclée and canvas printing are also available. The options are endless and include framing, coffee table albums, and more.
Referral discounts given. Please be sure to include your name. Check the rates page for on-line sales and photo sessions. If my pro lab is running a sale I am happy to pass on those savings.
If you are on a deadline and need media to go to press immediately; I have you covered with many years of newspaper industry experience. I understand the circumstance of needing things done yesterday. I can download images directly to my laptop or iPad for you to view and send whatever you choose. All images are edited and color corrected. Rest assured that your job will be delivered on time and at top level quality. Value is defined in such terms.
An added courtesy service I can provide with event shoots a link to a selection of images which you can include in your thank-you emails the following day. Remind your guests of the amazing time they had.
I use both external hard drive and remote cloud backup services to secure all of my work. I keep these backup files for a year, or longer if requested. I shoot everything at the highest resolution for optimal detail and versatility. All files are resized to suit your needs, including original resolution by request. These options and more are discussed upfront.
I typically spend approximately two to three times the duration of the shoot going over all of the images to ensure every detail is the best it can be. I have many tools at my disposal which include the full Adobe sweet complete with an array of filters and plug ins. I can apply treatments of all sorts including sepia, gray scale, HDR, vintage filters, super saturation, and distressed effects according to the time alloted and the situation at hand.
I can provide your images in a number of ways. I commonly use well established on-line storage services for file transfer such as Dropbox. I can also send a hard copy by mail on a flash drive or disk when needed. I provide various presentation options for special events as well.
Further notes: I prefer not to work from lists. The trust of my clients is very important to me. I like to go with the moment with a photojournalist feel. If I think the size of an event is too large for me to capture alone, I can call in partner photographers to cover all angles of large events.
