Portraits In The Loft is a project that creates high end magazine quality portraits at the South Orange Performing Arts Center Loft in South Orange twice a month.
Our next date is July 12th, 11 – 7. Scheduling is on the hour – done by email or telephone. firstname.lastname@example.org (212) 452-3267
For reference on the kind of work I do – have a look at www.peyton.com – you will see many portraits on pure ‘web white’ backgrounds – a specialty.
A shoot is 30 minutes and includes 3 outfit changes or enhancements (adding a jacket, adding a sweater). We have a wardrobe rack, steamer and wardrobe kit on set.
Most people like to shoot a brightly colored outfit, a business outfit (navy, black and white, designer etc) and something more casual. There are no limits on colors. For women – highly suggested to bring some accessories – accent the neckline etc as many people choose to use our photos as headshots.
The next business day after the shoot every subject receives a password protected site. We request that folks get back to us with the full file name of the shots they want to retouch. We include 3 retouched images with each shoot – and those will be delivered in 4 crops each – all very high resolution (print resolution). We also include a black and white version done by hand in our our color aligned monitor and proprietary software system.
Everyone who comes through Portraits In The Loft get’s a consultation with our make-up and hair wizard(ess) – Laura Koski – who works at MSNBC before she comes to us and does most of the on air talent there. She also has a long history with celebrity clients, advertising shoots, and broadcast. She has a few good stories…. Most women go for the ‘full’ and most men go for the “touch-up”. A full includes a full face of airbrush make-up, touch ups on clean blown out hairstyle, and waredrobe touchups. We aim for total perfection as per my work with magazines and etc.
Pricing is $249 per person for the photography, proof site, retouch and delivery site. Make-up is $50 for a touch up or $100 for a full. Credit cards gratefully accepted on site.
