My Short Story
In 2013 my wife Laura and I moved to Slaughter, LA and in 2018 I retired. Now I am moving from photography as a hobby to photography as a serious artist. I have always enjoyed photography and have had a camera in my hand since 1980. I know I can use my skills to create great Photographic Memories for the people living in East Feliciana and surrounding areas as well as pursuing my landscape photography. I love creating beautiful images that others can see, it's my art.
Questions and Answers
What do you charge?
My rates are meant to be very reasonable. I understand living in a rural area the prices charged have to reflect that. Also I am able to hold down my prices because my photography business is not my sole source of income. In general I offer two basic packages. One for a set of 15 photographs minimum and one for a set of 40 photographs minimum priced for the time spend performing the shoot. Upon delivery of proofs the photographs can be downloaded from the website electronically for $2 each or printed from the website and delivered to you door priced depending on the size you choose with packages available. Prior to my services I perform a free no obligation consultation with each customer where all the prices are reviewed fully. Other special events are for negotiated pricing and again kept low as possible. I know once you see the results you will be happy with what you get for the prices.
Why go with You?
Please look at my samples shown here on my sight for example of my work. I also use a premium printing service that delivers fantastic prints for very reasonable prices. They have choices for almost any type of prints and offer really quick delivery. I have samples on hand of their printing choices so you know what you will get before you commit to your printing purchase. In addition I safeguard your photographs. Everyone has password protection to their photos but you only have to enter this one time if you visit your photos with the same computer. I keep your photos available to you for years to come so if you need new prints later from your session you can just log on and get them made. This also protects your memories in case of disaster at home. Nearly everyone that ever loses a home to some form of disaster will tell you the one thing they cannot replace are their photos. By using my service you will have the ability to reproduce your photos for years and years to come. Lastly I give a discount to my returning customers so they know that by staying with me they ensure the best prices possible going forward.
What Do you review in the Free Consultation?
In the consultation I take the time to find out about you and what your looking for in your photographs. Everyone has their individual needs and goals for their photography session. The Consultation is designed for me to understand your needs, help guide you where needed and prepare myself just for your shoot. This approach gives consistently good outcomes to the photographs which is what we all want. The Consultation also ensures you know what the costs are and what options are right for you. This includes things like helping you pick the right sizes and types of prints for you needs and even down to the right paper or other material to have your prints made on.
What Types of Photography Sessions Do You Do?
In short I do Individual and Family portraits as well as certain special events like Birthdays, Family Sports Photography and others. For the portraits (Family and Individual) this includes Modeling Photography, Graduation Photography, Fitness Photography, Couples Photography, Children and Newborn Photography, Family Portraiture and many more. Call me to discuss your needs and I will give you straight forward recommendations if I feel like I am the Photographer for you. From there we can move to the no obligation Consultation.
