PORTRAIT DAY DETAILS 2019 Feb 15 + Feb 23
AN IMAGE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS?
Portraits should tell a story about you — give a glimpse into your personality, your vision, your human presence. I offer portrait sessions that are more than a simple headshot session and give you images that aim to express your uniqueness in your work and life.
90% percent of the people I photograph walk in the door and say, “I hate having my photo taken” or some critique of themselves that they don’t like. My aim is to undo some of that by finding ways to relax, to breathe, to be present, and know that I’m looking out for you.
For these portrait days, prices are reduced from my regular rates to give entrepreneurs, small business owners and individuals an opportunity to benefit from pro-rated portrait fees. I only offer this a few times in a year.
When & Where: Friday, February 15th and Saturday February 23rd at my Strathcona studio in Vancouver, BC. The studio is modern, clean, bright with white walls, concrete floors and I’ll have a range of backdrops to use.
30 min Portrait session $300
One look — can be either out on location near my studio OR in studio. Final set of 5 edited images from an online gallery of at least 30 images.
1 Hour Portrait session $380
Two looks: includes an outfit change and can be a mix of on location near my studio and in studio. Final set of 10 images from an online gallery of approximately 60 images .
2 Hour Portrait session $500
For my 2 hr sessions I offer multiple main looks/outfit changes with layering (e.g. adding jackets, etc. for a 3rd or 4th look), shooting in multiple locations (usually studio and then also on the street, nature, or other environment that makes sense close to my studio in Strathcona). A final set of 18 images from an online gallery of 90+images.
You have the option to purchase additional images. Photographs are licensed for your own PR use, unlimited time frame, but not resale. Publication for editorial use is fine with image credits when possible.
Hair and makeup is not mandatory but is recommended. I find it helps people feel confident, polished and pro. It usually takes an additional 45 min - 1 hr before your photo session depending on your hair. This is an additional $100 (for the 2 hour session hair and makeup cost is $175). All pricing is + GST.
