At Home is a whimsical, exclusive, custom-designed and tailored artistic portrait of people in the place where they are most comfortable - their favorite room at home. 'At Home' portraits incorporate the elements of photojournalism, interior photography and portrait photography with a humorous twist - a pirate in the room.
Here's how it works: when you contact me, I'll arrange a meeting with you at your home. I'll get to know you and your lifestyle, and will photograph your favorite room to assist me in setting up the details of your shoot. Once I've determined the scene for your 'At Home' photo, I'll contact you to schedule your shoot. After the shoot, I will review each photo file to choose the image that best represents you and your environment. Once edited to perfection, I will personally take it to a printer and work with him to decide the best medium for your portrait: photo paper, metallic paper, or canvas. After printing, if a frame is required, I will take your portrait to a framer and together we'll determine the best way to showcase your portrait, based on your decor and the elements of the photo. When I've picked up the finished portrait, I'll be in touch with you to arrange for its presentation. The process takes about a month; each portrait will be given my undivided attention from start to finish, so I will not schedule the next 'At Home' until yours has been delivered.
The 'At Home' portraits will be used to promote the series and may be submitted for photography contests; it is also my intention to exhibit my 'At Home' series of portraits at some future time. In view of this, I require a model release for all people featured in the photograph and a property release for the home interior. You will also be asked to sign a contract and remit a 50% deposit of the total fee.
Fees for your unique 'At Home' portrait begin at $1500. Commissions are taken on a first-come-first-served basis, so contact me today to schedule your own exclusive work of art!
