You're a portrait artist, why should I choose you!?
Great question - let's address 2 issues in 1. Photographers are often plonked into categories, like lenses. But in reality, these are just false labels that people use off-hand without considering what that really means. I'm sure you've shot portraits with a "landscape" lens and landscapes with a "portrait" lens. See what I mean?
I work with people. Whether it's one-on-one in a studio, or in groups, people are people. I've shot charity events that lasted 6+ hours, with raving crowds and the craziest lighting scenarios you can imagine. I can direct kids and adults to get a great portrait, or let them loose and wait for the decisive moment to capture, all while juggling lights and lenses.
Why choose me? Because I've got well-rounded, worldwide experience, I'm a good listener, and I don't panic.
Why do you want to be a second shooter for me?
I'm looking to add elopements and weddings to my bag of tricks. Any experience I can acquire while helping a fellow photographer with their day is a win-win-win.
Your clients win, you win, I win.
What equipment do you use?
I use professional-grade mirrorless equipment with weather-sealed lenses and bodies, and dual card slots. I mainly shoot with primes, but if we're going hard and wild, I have zooms I bring along as well.
For specific details see below.
Olympus cameras and lenses are my equipment of choice. They're small and light but super powerful. Here's what I use:
- Olympus OMD E-M1 mark 2
- Olympus OMD E-M5 mark 2
Capable of extremely fast shutter speeds and frame rates, outstanding autofocus, great battery life, and excellent image quality. Check my gallery if you need further proof, I challenge you to guess which images were taken with Medium Format, Full-Frame, or M4/3.
Heck, I can't even tell and I took the photos, haha!
Additional gear and expertise:
All of my current gear can double as videography gear plus mics for highlight reels, social media posts, and capturing behind the scenes moments for your business. This translates into more value for you and your clients.
*Editing not included in per-hour price.
I have the gear and the expertise to create stunning photography in this area that will provide your client with something truly unique. I use portable Godox AD200 pro units on location and giant umbrellas for that painterly, natural Vermeer and Chiaroscuro light look.
*by prior arrangement only, extra $25 per hour.
360° and VR
Want to surprise your clients with a video that their parents or other people can watch through a VR headset, or on YouTube / Facebook that lets them experience those special moments as if they were there, too? I can do that!
*360° gear is specialist equipment and incurs an additional $150 per hour cost to bring it along. Editing is extra.
