You have a vehicle you love and want to capture its essence for display, either as a print on a wall or table, as a screensaver or background for your computer, as your Facebook timeline cover image, online in your blog or website, or as a poster at a car show.
Let us work together to create an impressive portrait of your vehicle that you will be thrilled with and can enjoy for many years to come!

HOW IT WORKS
First we talk (either in person or via phone) about what you want and what you expect. This helps me to understand your vision for how you want your vehicle to be presented. Then we schedule a time and location for the vehicle photo session.
After the photo session, allow up to two weeks processing time for Standard Portrait photos. I will e-mail you information on how to access and view your photos on-line when your photo gallery is available.
Your photo gallery will remain on-line for 30 days from the date of the e-mail to allow you to view, share, and make purchases.

A $25 deposit is required at the time of booking and the rest of the balance is due at the time of the photo session.

There is a charge of $20 for each additional 1/2 hour if the photo session is extended beyond 2 hours.

-- Option VP-PS-2 will also include the owner in some of the photos, posed in various locations and fashions with the vehicle in one set of clothing.
Note: Premier Series Prints, Digital Copies, and Prints of the photos are not included in the photo session fees.
STANDARD PORTRAIT PHOTOS
Standard post production photo retouch and edit processing is provided for 10-15 selected photos from your photo session.
Post production processing for Standard Portrait photos may include airbrushing, sharpening, color correction, and cropping as required to achieve high quality photos that still look natural and not overly processed.
PREMIER SERIES PRINTS
Various options are available to turn photos from your photo session into one or more Premier Series Prints. For example, a collage or montage of several photos and text can be put together to produce a custom poster.
There is a one-time nonrefundable fee to create a Premier Series Print and it includes one initial consulting session to design the print and then two feedback/review sessions to finalize the print. The final Premier Series Print is made available in your photo gallery for on-line viewing and to make purchases.
Contact me to discuss the custom options and prices for creating a Premier Series Print.

The Standard Portrait photos from the photo session and any Premier Series Prints are posted to an on-line photo gallery for viewing and to make purchases.

After 30 days from the initial e-mail notice, your photo gallery will be removed from on-line access. Contact me if you need more time to view and purchase photos from your photo gallery
