Using digital capture still requires a careful, rigorous approach to each project. You still have the same challenges on location, but with digital you get additional technical tools built right into the camera
to compliment the inner creativity of the photographer that is so important to each project. Digital capture is not an easy fix for poor photography, it’s just an additional tool that saves time by not having
to send film to a lab for processing and waiting for it to return to do edits. With digital, the photographer is now the post-production processor and output technician, so there’s more technical knowledge
required to be productive in a digital workflow and with that knowledge and proper tools, the photographer is able to produce outstanding results for each client. Thanks to the wireless lighting that can
be used with colored gels, clients who want a creative approach can have their assignment done with standard lighting and gels with minimal setup time. Prices for digital photography are negotiable
depending on your scope of work. We enjoy developing lasting relationships with clients, so please call to discuss your project needs.

JPEGs for final review and preparing master files for output. Time per file varies greatly depending on the need and this is why it's charge hourly. RGB master files have more than 16 million available
colors and no limiting file characteristics. I can set the output for each image to match the intended use. Clients have the option to use their pre-press printer to convert the RGB files to CMYK and do
their own color correction and retouching for final output. I retain and own the master files. For an additional fee proofs can be posted to a web site, FTP uploaded to your server, emailed or delivered on
