A. I do really terrific natural retouching that will bring out your best while eliminating distractions:)
I will whiten the eyes, smooth under eyes if needed, get rid of stray hairs, eliminate blemishes, smooth lines as needed, enhance and sharpen eyes, lessen or eliminate background distractions, check clothing for wrinkles and add contrast and do whatever I think will make them "pop"!
A. You will receive an email from me within 1-3 business days of your session. There will be a direct link to your online proofsheets where you will be able to view your images and select favorites. You can contact me to order retouching, and I will send your retouched images to you and also to Reproductions if you want to order 8x10's.
Your images will be online for 6 months initially, and may be re-uploaded at any time thereafter for a small fee.
A. Once you have made your appointment, I will send you an informative email that will totally help you get ready for your session! It will let you know what types of clothing to bring, explain different looks and give specific examples. It will tell you how to prepare, where to go, what time to come, what to bring and not bring, and where to park if you are driving. It's basically going to do everything except pack and call you a cab! And of course, if you have any questions after you read it, feel free to call or email me.
A. For GIRLS: The total time will be about 3-4 hours (including makeup and hair time).
For GUYS: The total time will be about 2 1/2-3 hours (including light makeup, and time for shaving if you want)
A. Great question! I am very well known for my beautiful and creative lighting! I am lucky to have a large greenhouse room overlooking a park in my Greenwich Village studio, so I use a lot of natural light in combination with a large variety of different types of studio lights that I have a certain mastery for (if I do say so myself!)
My studio is a really cool, comfortable space and has great features: large windows, exposed brick, glass block, cool spaces, etc. I also have a large dressing room and a private bathroom.
I have so many options with my lighting! I like to mix natural and studio lighting to get the precisce look that I want, It's like being a lighting director on a film. I also have the ability to use very dramatic lighting that would never occur outside. This is especially great for theatrical images, edgy film shots and opera portraits.
I also love to shoot gorgeous fresh outdoor natural light looks as well, so you really have the chance to get it all in one shoot.
Most people say they would love to live in my studio if it were an apartment! But I saw it first :)
A. If you want to come in to meet, that is absolutely fine, just give me a call or email me to set it up. But also you should know that before your shoot, I will send you a very informative email so you will know exactly how to prepare, and what clothes to bring, etc. so you will feel very prepared. I am very good at knowing your casting types and how to show the best YOU to position yourself. Even if you don't know, I will know what types/vibes you will need in your shots to best market yourself while staying true to who you are. I will help with clothing selection and will direct you all throughout your session so we will be collaborating the entire time:)
A. Just email me or call/text my cell (203) 904-5967(c) to set up an appointment!
I usually shoot on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, with an occaisional weekend date available.
I require a $200 deposit to reserve a session. Deposits are non-refundable once a session is booked. If you need to reschedule, I ask that you give me a minimum of 3 business days notice. In this case I will apply your deposit to your new shoot date. Thanks!:)
