My specialty is an Impressionist
style of photographic portraiture. Portraits that have the warmth and
look similar to an impressionist watercolor painting. However, the original
photos will be a classical style of portraiture which can be given an
Impressionist treatment or left as they are -- you choose which finished
style you prefer. Of course, if you are not satisfied with the Impressionist
treatment, you don't have to pay for it. You don't even have to pay for the
photo shoot if you don't like any of the photos. That's my guarantee.
I shoot on location where my subjects are
comfortable, or in the beautiful ambience of nature. I use environmental settings with natural lighting and
concentrate on getting relaxed candid photographs. I include whatever you
want in the photograph, whether it is a family pet, or any other special
object or background that is important to you. Of course, I will also shoot any
posed photos you may desire.
I use state-of-the-art digital cameras so
you can see the photos as they are taken. I will take as long as is
necessary to get the kind of portrait you want. You will not be rushed
through a studio sitting with limited time. I want to get to know you and
your personality as I photograph.
There is no limit to the quantity of photos taken or the time to take
them. I will keep going until I get what you want. Your satisfaction
is my goal.
