Schools and Daycares

I make class composites, a large variety of print package with very attractive pricing, student ID's, class books, Yearbook Layout on DVD for all major publishers and many add on and specialty items.

School portraiture is very difficult if done right.  When "factory portrait companies" are used, the results are often very poor.  The reason - they send minimum wage people to assemble a preset lighting and backdrop and get the kids through as fast as they can. They require that every shot look exactly the same for a couple of reasons: 1. Their people are not trained photographers and cannot correctly light poses.  2.  They are purchasing the cheapest batch printing where no color or density correction is made and the lab requires that every image look exactly the same.

I shoot every school personally and make the extra effort to quickly and slightly adjust the lighting to create the best portrait of each child.  Why? Because I only take schools and day cares in central and eastern Kentucky and I want these children and their parents to become my regular portrait clients.  For this reason, I also provide higher quality prints. Every image is individually analyzed and adjusted for color and density and have basic portrait vignetting and skin softening applied.

Schools & day cares have my best priced packages available.  My pricing will fall somewhere in the middle of average industry pricing, but with much greater care and attention to detail for every image.

Church Directories

Professionaly photographed with artistic portrait lighting. I am not a "portrait factory" that sends hourly workers to "act" as photographers with a preset flat lighting that is not flattering.  These companies do not allow thier people to properly pose or light thier images because they use low quality print services that require all images to be lit and posed identically. I take the extra effort to layout my books personally, so I can adjust poses and lighting for each family to get the most flattering image.

Sessions scheduled at your church or my studio, whichever is most convenient for you.
