Do you want a photo that draws attention and becomes an immediate conversation starter?  Maybe you should consider a composite photo session and we create images that reflect your unique personality.

Compositing combines visual elements from separate sources into a single image.  This creates the illusion that all those elements are parts of the same scene.  You recognize this technique in magazine ads, movie posters, etc.  When done right, the results express a part of your personality.  The composite is limited only by our combined imagination.  For example, an interesting engagement photo can be a woman whimsically riding a moped while her fiancee holds on for deal life and a cable car of close friends looks on in amusement.

If you are considering a graduation photo, an engagement, or just a fun idea, please consider this option.

It is fairly straightforward how we go about this.  After collaborating on an idea, we schedule a photo shoot to capture you (and whoever and whatever else needs to be in the image).  I will map out the lighting, angles, expression, and mood to match what our final idea represents.  During that same photo shoot we can capture some "normal" portrait images, also.  Then after Photoshopping you and the other elements together, a composite image is born!  You get the composite photos and the regular portrait shots.

The cost of doing this varies depending upon the complexity of the composite and whether we will do the photo shoot in a studio or in your home.  Prices start at $460 which is a Location Portrait Session with Photoshop added to it.  What you will receive are the high-resolution images of the composites and some regular portraits.  I have generous usage terms so you can use these images almost anywhere you want or print them with whomever you like.  You will also receive a very high-quality, museum-like matted art print of the composite to hang on your wall if you select the Composite Portrait Session.
