Commissioned Portraits start at $1,800.00
I come from a background of commercial photography and have always been drawn to creating something different and unique. Creative directors I worked with often felt the same and were trying to push for an edge that would make their client's product stand out from their competitors' offerings.
A few years back I thought, why not bring this approach to portraiture photography. Friends, familiar with my advertising and personal work, came to me looking for something they would not see in a year book or on their in-laws' mantle piece. Something that wouldn't make visitors say "Your kids are so sweet. What a lovely smile. Those braces sure worked a treat." but instead "How did you do that? I love it! That’s crazy!"
Photographs are individually tailored to commissioning families by incorporating interests, skills and passions of all family members into the conceptual planning process.
Here are a few of those images that have made people stop and stare:

1 custom portrait shoot
concept, tailored to clients' interest and agreed upon before shoot commences
one shoot of up to 5 people (roughly 1-3 hours) and potentially tons of animals

one finished image delivered as a high res tiff file and one 13"x19" (paper size) archival ink fine art paper print (image is for personal use only, photographer retains copyright)
all of the above (OPTION 1) plus:
1 archival aluminum print with shadow frame in either 24"x24" or 20"x30" depending on format of final image; larger prints available upon request (additional charges apply)
