Welcome to our studio

Of these, a select few have demonstrated the same talent, drive and results-oriented thinking that I demand of myself. No matter the size or scope of your project, we’ve got you covered.

  • Conception

    We always begin by talking about building the project around the ideas that you have in mind. Every project is different and requires a specific set of skills and planning to successfully execute.

  • Location Scouting

    Depending upon the size and scope of the project, location scouting is a must. This allows us to examine the space for technical and visual cues to be addressed in the shot list during pre-production.

  • Design and Story Boarding

    Once the base elements are in place, we can then create a story board of the project with details and a tentative shot list to adhere during the day of production.

  • Production

    Whether in studio or on location, photography is the main step during the production process. Using the latest equipment and lighting, we will photograph the project in a timely manner using the shot list created to the require specifications needed.

  • Editing and Retouching Services

    Using Adobe Photoshop and Bridge CS, we will catalog – process – edit and save your images in various size formats with the latest retouching techniques available. We have a full array of custom actions and filters to help with the editing process and are always looking at more efficient ways to streamline our methods.

  • Proofing and Delivery

    All final edited images are categorized in their respective file folders and placed in custom thumb drive for every single client. The final contents are then direct delivered to their place of business within the timeline required by the client.
