Why Custom Photography?
Custom Photography is about finding someone who will photograph you or your family, and give you individualized attention without the worry about who is next in line. You will be provided with experience, talent and an unparalleled final product, whether that be framed Art for your walls, a professionally designed leather album, or a collection of digital files.
It is about a unique, luxurious and fun experience in my studio, with proper guidance so that you feel comfortable and relaxed, while capturing your unique style and personality. From start to finish, the session is tailored for you. In this digital disposable world, what makes me happiest is providing you with tangible photographs, of you or those you love, displayed in a way that brings you happiness for many years.
While some of the best things in life are free, others are worth investing in. This really comes down to what YOU value. At the heart of it, custom Photography may not be for everyone, but rather those who enjoy taking a more active role in the creation of their memories, as well as having the desire to enjoy a beautiful end product. These clients tend to dedicate time and a budget for the services that I provide at my studio.
There is a great deal of time involved in creating high-end photo sessions for a client, as well as a huge investment for the Photographer to provide you with a studio equipped with the professional lighting, cameras, computers and software needed to produce photos such as the ones on my website.
A photographer such as myself will have a low client-per-month ratio. Typically, a family portrait session in which the client wishes to purchase, for example, the full collection of digital photos as well as a leather album, will take me 20-30 hours from start to finish. This is why a full week for me may only have two or three clients bookings. This has always been my business model, and this is why I have the same wonderful clients coming year after year, for over 20 years. I would prefer to spend time creating amazing portrait art for those who value it, than have 50 clients back to back in a week, and provide them with a sub-standard product and experience.
