Our approach and service model
Every successful portrait is the result of a well-planned session where the artist is able to develop a close understanding of the sitter’s personality and aspirations for the commission. Any little detail could make a significant difference in the finished product.
Our Discovery meeting is meant precisely to get to know our clients, their needs and aspirations and for us to prepare them for the photographic session. We’ll discuss ideas using an inspiration mood board, clothing, makeup and hair, artifacts, etc. We’ll also discuss the potential placement of the artwork, suitable sizes, craftsmanship, and value.
In order to help us prepare for this meeting, we ask that you fill out our Pre-Session Questionnaire prior our meeting.
Our photographic sessions are all about our clients. We understand that this is a special day where the comfort and enjoyment of our clients will be paramount to a successful photographic experience.
Only one client at a time is booked for that day and while a typical session could take up to four hours in the studio, our only focus is on procuring the ultimate image for our client. Time is not of the essence for us. We encourage multiple wardrobes and look changes.
This is perhaps one of the most anticipated and exciting day for both our clients and us. On this day, we take our time to showcase the most outstanding images of the photo session and assist our client in their critical and inevitably emotional selection of the “hero” shot; the image that will occupy a central focus point of their home, and soon to become a treasured family heirloom.
At this point in the process, we are able to define the commission components and commence the editing and production phase. This will usually take between four and six weeks depending on the selected product(s) and features.
No doubt the most anticipated day. This day represents the culmination of a creative collaboration that started with a dream. A dream that was literately brought to light through the magic of photography.
The unveiling meeting could take place either at the studio or the client’s home. Congratulations, you are now immortalized in a Photoglytptos masterpiece.
