HOW MUCH SHOULD I EXPECT TO SPEND?
When you decide to do a professional portrait session you are investing in preserving your family's memories. The cost of hiring a professional photographer provides so much more than getting someone with expensive photo gear. Yes, you get my photographic expertise, but you also benefit from my location scouting, posing advice, knowledge of animal behavior and handling skills, professional photo editing, consultation on product selection, and access to professional photo labs. All the artwork we produce together will be produced using archival quality inks and paper -- or will be printed on metal -- and, frankly, will last longer than you or I. It will preserve this time in your family history so that it can be passed on to future generations.
With Gregg Patrick you have a choice of the type of photo session you'd like -- in-studio or on location. In either case the images will be created using studio lighting in order to create the stunning and dramatic images for which I am known. Every session is completely customized to each individual's needs so that the resultant images are exactly as you'd like.
Location sessions are private photo sessions in a location we have selected together; the session is typically 1-2 hours long. For a location session there is a session fee of $500 due at the time you wish to secure a session date. If you are purchasing art "a la carte," $250 of this fee converts to credit towards your finished art work. If you purchase a collection, 100% of this fee will convert to credit towards your finished art.
You'll have many wonderful images from your session that will create beautiful art you'll cherish for many, many years. Because there are always so many great images, most clients end up investing a total of $1,500-$2,500, including the session fee and the wall art, desktop folio boxes, albums, etc. that they select.
Studio sessions takes place at my home in Odenton, MD, and result in clean, contemporary images. Studio session fees are also $500, however, $350 of this fee converts to credit towards your finished art work. A studio session is typically shorter in duration (about an hour) and will not result in as large a diversity of images as a location shoot. Most clients who select a studio session end up investing a total of $750-$1,500, including the session fee, wall art and other art purchased.
Please contact me to request an e-brochure that outlines all of the above and provides prices for specific types/sizes of finished art.
Lastly, please note that I offer a satisfaction guarantee. If you do not like your images you may receive a 100% refund of your session fee!
