EXPERIENCE THE PROCESS
1) PHONE CONSULTATION:
Once you decide to contact me, I will zoomcall you and with pleasure and all the time you need I explain in details the process, and we define about how you wish to look and feel in your portraits. We study styles and themes, wardrobe, logistic, other details and ideas you have found on Internet or other medias.
2) THE PORTRAIT SHOOT:
I offer to come to your home and comfort zone, or we can meet at a certain location of your choice. Due to the Covid situation, my team and I will be wearing a mask all the time and all are equipment will be sanitized.
We usually arrive at 10 AM and the stylists will begin your transformation. Meanwhile I will scout the best places to photograph you and will set up my studio lights and backdrop. Around 11:30 AM we will start the sessions, which can finish around 2 or 3 PM. The shoot times vary depending on who and how we are photographing. It is important for me you to feel satisfied with this experience and to provide a range of options for you to choose your final art pieces. The session allows as much as 5 outfit changes so you have photos for a variety of uses.
After the incredible session, my team and I will pick up our material and leave.
3) VIEWING AND ORDERING:
After the shooting, I will spend time selecting the best images of you which is around 25-30 photos and personally and professionally edit and retouch them with my style based on many years experience. I will come back after 5 to 10 working days with the matted prints (18x25cm) for a private viewing, and help you choose with several presentation options like matted prints, frames, folio boxes and print sizes.
A payment will be done (cash, transfer or debit/credit card) and your precious photos (with my signature on the back) will be sent at your home within 2 weeks, to cherish them for the rest of your life.
Most clients purchase my middle package which includes 12 matted prints (18x25 cm photo in a 28x35cm mat) and come in a beautiful keepsake photo box (30x38cm). Some clients spend $150 USD and some $1,200 USD or more. There is no hard sell and what you buy is completely up to you.
Of each chosen photo, you will receive the corresponding digital files of your pictures in high resolution and in low resolution for your social networks or for sharing (with my watermark).
Denis Jockmans Fine Art Portrait Photography guarantees you superior quality product and longevity. You won't regret.
Consider your photo session as an investment, which consists the value of your experience for posing for a professional photographer, to have of yourself or your family a great portrait, printed on excellent durable paper that you can hang on a wall for everybody to see and the value the photographer gives for his work.
Why are prints better than digital files?
Not every day you will see your portrait if it is stored and sometimes forgotten in your computer or other electronic device, with the danger it could be lost for ever. Also, digital files will never show the fine details or provide the special sensation when touching the texture of the high quality fine art paper printed with high quality inks. Your portrait will hang as a framed heirloom for generations like classical or modern paintings and will give more value to your home.
The session fee is $190 USD which includes professional hair & makeup styling, image styling and the photo session time. I is paid in advance to secure your chosen date. It is non-refundable should you cancel, but is transferable to another date in the event you wish to amend your booking with at least 48 hours notice.
The session fee does not include any images, either prints or digital negatives; these must be purchased separately unless specified for that particular package or collection.
