services designed for artists
Serving local artists, from start to finish.
It’s important to have professional images of yourself at the ready. Quality, descriptive portraits take websites and social media profiles to a new level, and are generally a requirement when artists are profiled by media outlets, speaking venues, or teaching opportunities.
From headshots to environmental portraits, I want to help you present yourself to the world in the way you want to be seen. Portraits are an important part of your brand, and I specialize in creating uniquely descriptive images through consultation and customization with the artist.
Also, remember that in most cases, professional development expenditures are tax-deductible.
À la carte, custom headshot or environmental portrait sessions are $250 (or they’re included as part of a larger package - keep scrolling!). Sessions include 30-60 minutes in front of the camera, in-studio or on location; a complete set of high resolution images via digital download; print release; online gallery; and consultation with a professional makeup artist upon request.
digitize your portfolio.
Professional, high-quality digital images of your work - today’s “slides” - are becoming indispensable as they’re required for every proposal, application, and feature, not to mention your website and social media profiles.
I offer artwork photography for work of any medium, in-studio or on location. À la carte, this service is available for an hourly rate of $250, or as included in a larger package (keep scrolling!). The resulting high-resolution digital images are included in the rate, as is any necessary consultation afterwards to ensure the accuracy of the color and character in the images.
Generally speaking, one hour can cover up to 20 pieces, depending on the medium and size. All work is photographed with high-grade professional equipment, including daylight-balanced LED and strobe lights and x-rite color matching calibration software. An average finished file size is 65 MB, 6000 pixels x 4000 pixels at 300 ppi resolution (suitable for printing), and can easily be re-sized to web resolution, etc.
open for business.
If you’re at the very start of your professional art life - or if you’re rebranding - or if you’ve been around but are reintroducing yourself in the digital era - I can get you ALL set up.
Presenting The Legit Kit: a start-up package to get you completely off the ground and running. The package includes:
Digital portfolio photography, up to 2 hours
Custom headshots or environmental portraits
Additional custom photography, up to 3 hours and redeemable by the half-hour. These hours can include “action” and process sessions; installations; receptions/openings; etc.
Design work, 1 hour: I’ll help you prepare appropriately sized and formatted versions of your images for submissions (to CaFE, for example), or for upload to printing services (like Moo); I can also prepare ‘camera-ready’ designs for business cards, postcards, or other materials.
Starter website: get yourself online with a clean, simple, and rock-solid website. This package includes a customized website I will build via the Squarespace platform. I will create the site, populate it with the images and content we produce, and tailor it to your needs after extensive consultation with you. Your user-friendly site will be handed off to your ownership once its construction is complete. Up to four hours of design/content consultation and/or training is included, as are two supplementary hours of website support after handoff. (Complex sites - like those set up for commerce, etc - may incur an additional charge.)
$2000 inclusive fee, available as an annual plan of $167/month.
The Legit Kit is also available without the website services for an inclusive fee of $1500.
I am so excited to work with artists in our community on this. If you have questions, would like to see sample websites, or if you’d like to sign up, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
