Why go with a professional photographer? Great question!
The key to producing great images is a blend of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, getting creative with the location, technical skills (camera, lighting, editing) and pose direction. With over 15 years of portrait photography know-how, Michael Curtis Photography will deliver a unique session, no cookie cutter formula, that produces epic photos!
Even experienced amateurs struggle with the more nuanced parts of portrait photography. The mastery of lighting, hiding undesirable features, and creating radiant skin tones are among the most difficult and most important parts of producing perfect portraits. When you hire a professional, they will put their years of experience and training to work creating images of you that flatter and look fantastic!
Behind the scenes, your professional photographer will have pro-grade equipment, cameras and image storage with backup copies, software for editing and years of training to deliver consistently great photos.
One last consideration when choosing your photographer is to take time to look at their portfolio and make sure that their style of photography and the way they process their photos match the look that you're after. Click HERE to visit my Senior Portfolio.
Professional makeup for the ladies is highly recommended; day-to-day makeup just doesn't show up as well on camera. Our makeup artists are highly trained and can achieve a flawless natural or glam look, to suit your style. Another part of having a professional makeup artist is that it's a special day and I think being pampered and having fun is a huge part of making you not only look great but feel great. That's the formula to having a great senior photo session!
A professional is invested in your satisfaction. As a professional photographer, your satisfaction with the images, service and overall experience are the highest priority for me. It is mainly through word-of-mouth referrals that I sustain and grow my business, therefore, I am fully committed to your satisfaction.
