Portrait club studios

portrait studio | fine art portraiture photography club

Looking for a new hobby? Already enjoy photography but want to take your photography talent to the next level? Perhaps you would like to mix "business with pleasure" by saving money on professional quality portraits by doing it yourself and joining a portrait club. Save yourself thousands of dollars in photography equipment, props and backgrounds by joining my portrait club.

Fine art portraiture takes time, patience and dedication. For these reasons, I can only accept club members who truly appreciate fine art portrait work and who are willing to take the time with me to help ensure only the best possible images may result. When working with babies and toddlers, this means rescheduling when sickness arises. Also scheduling portrait session when subject is expected to be most alert and awake. In the studio I have plenty of toys, bubbles, music and other things to enjoy ourselves during portrait sessions with little ones.

Portrait Session up to one hour, two clothing changes, up to six poses and you receive the best 20 full resolution and custom retouched JPEGs delivered via email link to Dropbox folder by next business day for $49.95 plus sales tax. Regular price $74.95 for non-members. You may optionally use my printing lab services on premises for all print sizes from 8x10 wallet sheets to 20" x 24" framed and matted wall portraits. You may also take the JPEGs to local and online labs of your choice for printing. The choices are all yours.

I'm available to shoot high-end outdoor and studio portraiture starting at $150 for two hour session. During these portrait sessions, expect to be spoiled and be a part of high attention to all the details to create very exceptional portrait images. Scheduling a make-up artist and hair stylist is very common during these portrait shoots. I also provide wedding photography services.

The studio is equipped with multiple flash, backgrounds, props and other equipment to offer these categories of photography to my portrait club members:

  • Baby
  • Maternity
  • Child
  • Family
  • Senior
  • Boudoir
  • Engagement
  • Glamour
  • Bridal
  • Model (Including Comp Card Design)
  • Easter
  • Christmas
  • Variety of Seasonal Theme Sets
  • Pet
  • Business Head Shots
  • Small Product Photography (table top)

I can be your photographer or provide you photography instruction during your session to help you become a better photographer. If you are already a confident photographer, you may use the fully equipped studio to shoot the session you want according to your Portrait Club Studios membership agreement.

You may shoot glamour, model and boudoir, but no pornographic work is permitted. All glamour, model and boudoir images must be creative, artistic and in good taste.

Professional Studio Portraiture

I have over 30 years of professional photography experience. I use multiple cameras and lenses. The studio is equipped with multiple flash, backgrounds and props. Attention to detail in posing, lighting, exposure, color balance, focus, white balance, lighting ratios and more are all considered and balanced for the most flattering creative images. Never any high-pressure sales tactics! Because this is your portrait club.

I always provide the full resolution JPEGs with copyright release. I have photographic printers on premises so you may order up to 20" x 24" wall portraits for next business day pick-up.
