Christina and Boys | Mini-Session

Great session with Christina and her boys. These are the type of images that come with my mini-sessions. I used to call them SnapRiot sessions but have decided to offer them as mini-sessions for only $50. Click on the Contact link at the top of my blog to setup a mini-session.

Kym | Portraits

I don’t publish client work on the internet because almost all of my clients prefer privacy, so in order to get images to show on my blog and on the internet I use models and friends. Kym had never modeled before and wanted to try it out. Here are shots of her done in my edgy fashion/glamor style. I have only been a professional photographer for a year, starting right after art school at The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
There were many challenges in this shoot, wind being the worst. Because I rarely shoot in studio and prefer environmental and on location sessions. Kym was great and we got some great shots. Remember that you can click images to view a larger version.

Natalie

Natalie is one of my favorite models to work with. She has pretty much been around from day one with her family. She has also seen my photography skill go from just taking pictures and refining a form to making art. Making the transition from art school to business has taken time. This was our fifth session. This is a prevalent style that you will see in my gallery wraps.
As an artist, the click of the camera is just a single step in the creation of my products. It starts with talking about your final product. What are we doing? In Natalie’s case, I was practicing a new style. I had a general idea of what I wanted to do with the images. They would be artistically edited to show my clients another product of mine and a style and product I offer.
Gallery wraps are for works of art, they are not for common photos. They are expensive and built to last generations. I believe that families should collect gallery wraps for their families at specific milestones in the road of life. To me, gallery wraps are the epitome of celebrating ourselves as a family. It, far more than a common 8×10, will celebrate the passage from high school to adulthood with our senior gallery wraps. Celebrate your family with a gallery wrap that will serve as an heirloom for generations.

My gallery wraps can be traditional but my art lies in a painted contemporary style. I can do traditional, but I don’t think it lends to the gallery wrap art piece as well as my painted style. There are other products like a traditional black and white image with deep blacks on metallic black and white paper wrapped around a floated frame that stands a few inches from the wall. In my gallery wraps, I prefer bright colors and paint-like canvases with beautiful photos. If you have a dream image, come to me with it and we can figure out how to create it together.

Fine Art vs. Photography

In the world today, photography is everywhere and everyone has a camera. Local photographers have multiplied and multiplied creating a minefield of photographers, which ones are good and the ones that aren’t are difficult to find.
In today’s photography world, my style of photography stands out because it is fine art. Fine art is much different in the fact that I create photographic art printed on canvas or fine art photographs. Real photographs are also something I provide, instead of inkjet prints. I am not one to look down on other art but the medium of our art is as important as the display itself. I would say that every photographer out there is using inkjet prints, if they are making real photographs they will let you know. You can’t print fine art on an inkjet. For one, it fades after a decade if it has UV protection less if it is not protected with a coating or UV glass frame. Two, fine art is not meant to fade, ever. Great precautions are made to protect fine art. I make real photographs created using light and a chemical process. The photograph alone will last your lifetime right out of the package. Oh and it will last for at least another generation. These photographs will last for 100 years, far longer if protected further behind museum glass (which we use in our frames).
So, the primary thing you need to ask yourself is this – do you want a picture or do you want art?

Services and Prices Brochure 2010

Here is a download for my brochure for 2010. I prefer web brochures these days because I prefer a green manufacturing system. I am not going to tout that I am the greenest this or that… it is a way of life and nothing to advertise really. This web brochure is in .pdf format and if you need any assistance, email me and I can assist you.

Photo Tip | Your Prints

Prints really matter. A lot of people love printing their photos at home and I do myself sometimes, but I usually print something to hand to my sons. They love getting pictures of a bear that I photographed or a macro shot of a bee, my oldest is four and I just like handing him photographs even though they end up on the floor or in the hands of a one year old. These pictures are for that purpose. Any photograph you print on an inkjet, no matter how great they say the ink is, no matter how good your film paper is going to lose quality quicker than traditional photographs.

Traditional photographs are not printed, the photographs are created by exposing light on light sensitive paper. Make sure you get photographs not prints. Photographs will last longer because of the process. Inkjet papers can last longer through a light coating that is applied in some pro shops, especially UV coating. Most of us cannot do that. Well, that really is where the professional photographer comes in.

All those inkjet pictures you have printed over the last few years will be almost completely faded in 20 years in storage or half that on the wall in a home display. Well, over half of the local professionals use inkjet printers from the last few years. Odds are that if you have a photograph in the last few years they are digital prints to inkjets. Your pictures will not be around when your children are older, they will be faded. They might still be recognizable, maybe.

All those that have stuck with film have actual photographs, not prints. In my home, we have photographs, not prints. The entire purpose of the professional photographer is to give you photographs, make sure your photographer is getting photographs to you and not inkjet prints. If you are getting inkjet prints make sure they are coated. Even coated inkjet prints will not last as long as a photograph.

SnapRiot Portrait Sessions

SnapRiot sessions are really fun and a great answer for those that want great photography at a great price. In a SnapRiot session, we get together for thirty minutes at an outdoor location and in a very rapid, free flowing session we make great images together. SnapRiot sessions only cover a single location and a single outfit with up to two people. These sessions are great for business portraits, senior pictures, single parents and a child and so much more.

SnapRiot Sessions are only $50

Shimaka [portrait session]

Shimaka was fun to shoot, sometimes there is a warm up time in order to shoot good portraits. There was none with her. I hope she really loves her portrait session. In my portrait sessions, I cover several locations, usually trying to get some good urban style, edgy looks and some classic portraits in nature. These images are the reason, I love shooting outside of the studio.

There are a lot of Visalia portrait photographers, so make sure you look at current work and not the best of their work over twenty years. Try to look at their blog if they have one and take a look at current work.

Shimaka’s portrait session was wonderful as you can see from the images. This wide variety of styles, poses and shots are very typical of my photo shoots.

Brideography Package

I am now offering a Brideography package. It covers several photo shoots and is designed to cover several months to a year while you prepare for your wedding. The Brideography is a photography story of you preparing for your wedding day. It can be purchased separate from your normal wedding photographer or you may add it on to one you already have with me or the one you are going to get.

Preparation shoot is included with brideography package 3

During the reception, you will also get a slideshow with music showing the preparation that you went through to get to your wedding. To do the Brideography, you coordinate with me before you go searching for a dress, the florist, the venue, etc… You get several sessions leading up to your wedding that tell the story of your preparation.

The Brideography comes in three packages for varying numbers of shoots and reserved days. The first package covers the search for the dress and the bridal shower. The second package adds on another on-location shoot (maybe the florist) and the bachelorette party, although you get to see the pictures before anyone else… you can blackmail your girlfriends.

The third and final Brideography package covers the search for the wedding wardrobe, I will also follow a bridesmaid group on a separate occasion (if needed). I will follow you to the florist and other vendors as planned. I will go to five different vendors with you. You will get your bridal shower covered and the bachelorette party (if you want it covered). On the day(s) leading up to your wedding, I will shoot a spa or stylist and your preparation for the wedding.

The brideography packages start at $1000 and you get a disc with your images and you get a slideshow. The length of that slideshow is based on the package you purchased.
