This ad will run in the River City Reader this coming week. Studio D would like to meet new customers and establish new relationships around our new location. At the same time Studio D offers an advance notice of the special pricing to friends, vendors needing new web photos of themselves, and our Facebook friends to take advantage of the special.
Here’s the scoop. You must book and pay in July, bu8t you can make th appointment anytime between now and the end of August.
$25..00 gets you 1/2 hour session or $50.00 a full hour. You get all the images on DVD ready to be printed. Of course we have some great products for you to purchase if you desire, but there won’t be any hard sales pitch.
Concept shoots are fun, and this one proved to be no exception. Lexie always enjoys time in front of the camera. Erin Seddon is a makeup artist I recommend frequently, and we wanted to hookup to capture some of her work for various things. The last part of the equation is Skellington Manor in the District in Rock Island. They were perfect because I wanted a location out of the box and not seen 400 times. After a while locations become very “ho-hum” when everyone uses them.
It was magic time. Everything jelled. The three of us laughed, joked, planned, shot, and suddenly it was almost 3 hours later.
Skellington Manor is the old Masonic Temple in Rock Island. It enjoys a very 1930’s- 1940’s feel to the architecture and the lighting. Most have not seen the upper floors yet. There’s a little surprise about to be unveiled in the next few months. Would you like a little sneak preview?
Remember “Terror In The Woods” ? Surprise it has moved into town, and it is being set up for Halloween. It takes months to move, upack, set up, and prepare for the season. The second and third floor has some surprises. There is and old theater complete with stage, curtains, and a balcony. There are hidden rooms, closets full of horrors to be put in place. Theme party? Goth wedding? Mystery theatre night? This is the place. I’ve invited myself back to photograph when it is all set up.
Erin in the short time we have known each other has done the makeup for an intimate shoot and several others for Studio D, and booked several of my upcoming weddings. I am tremendously pleased with how people show up for the shoot looking their absolute best.
Look for more photos on Erin’s site, and of course Lexie will more than likely facebook ‘em!
Intimate photography has more to offer than nudity. In fact nudity is not at all what it is about. It is about seeing you at your very best and capturing the images. The session only reveals as much as you wish.
A session may be about you in a beautiful gown - think elegant evening out. It can be about you and your curves all the while never revealing you completely nude. A man’s white shirt is another good look for an intimate session.
Our sessions are planned in advance. Your goals for the shoot and it’s outcome are the first priority. Location, props, and clothing are next. Then it is one outfit per 20 minutes. We offer sessions of 20 minutes, 1 hour, and two hours. You need to come wth hair and makeup done. There are a number of good stylists and makeup artists in our area. We will be happy to make suggestions if you need help deciding.
We can work in the studio, on location we agree on, or your home.
Shoots can have themes, concepts, and are as varied as the individuals doing them. Any age over 21 is welcome, and we will ask to see photo identification if you look way younger than your age. You will be asked to sign a model release. In that release you have several options. Do not show my images, you may show my images but not my face, you may only show images I approve, you may show my face. Your wishes are always our guidelines for service.
We have done intimate books for grooms where they are either his groom’s gift from the bride or they are found by him on his pillow the wedding or honeymoon night. Portraits anywhere from 11×14 up to 40×60 fine art prints or canvases, albums of all sizes. We have an extensive menu.
Perhaps all you want is a version of you that has been enhanced by a beautiful hair style, skillfully applied makeup, and a portrait that is only slightly provocative? We can do that. Perhaps you want a session FOR HIS EYES ONLY? We can do that. Perhaps you don’t know what you want? We can help lead you to a session that will amaze and surprise you about how beautiful you are.
Studio D is offering 50% off shoot fees for the remainder of February and through the month of March.
