As your author portrait photographer, my aim to make a compelling image to get readers excited about your work and you. To prepare, my first wish is to read your work if I may. Doing so helps give me a sense of your aesthetic, message, and you. From there we have a preparatory chat. If you're coming to my studio, I set it up and scout nearby locations for our session. If I'm traveling to you or working remotely with you, I give ample time and am open to wherever you want to work. After our session, I share a web page of your images for your review. Your winning photograph is sent to my retoucher, retouched as you ask, and, after a bit more fine tuning by me, color and black-and-white versions of the final image are sent to you.
