As an author, your goal is to tell a story with words. As a photographer, my goal is to tell a story with pictures. An author’s photo can be more than a simple representation of your physical appearance. It can also tell the story of who you are as both a person and a writer. My ambition is draw out your personality and style, and give you photos that capture the very essence of you.
Author Sessions are conducted at the location of your choice* and include a full day of services. Prior to your photo shoot, I am available for stylized location scouting and a fun get-to-know-you meeting. In order for me to understand your writing style and who you are as a person, it is so important that we schedule time to visit–preferably over coffee or a meal! This also provides a familiarity that translates into a level of ease and comfort that is visible in your photos.
The goal of an Author Session is to provide you with 20-25 fantastic photos. Each photo is edited to improve the overall look and quality of the photo and subject (see “Editing” below for more specifics). Additional, more extensive editing is available upon specific request and at an additional cost. Photos are placed in an online album for review and approval, and the final edited images will be mailed to you in the form of high resolution jpgs on a DVD. Other delivery options are also available upon request.
