Free consultation                                                                                             

 

A portrait session may include a combination of studio and location shoots with up to five clothing changes.  All of our client transactions include two free consultations:

 

1.  The pre-shoot meeting.  In this meeting, Allen seeks to understand his customers:  their passions and personalities.  Together, customer and photographer develop a plan for the shoot, often drawing sketches of ideas.  Together they decide if the portraits should be formal and elegant, casual, playful, glamorous, edgy, artistic, or a sampling of all of the above.

 

2.  The post-shoot meeting.   After the portrait session, Allen will present the best of the best.  He will make the selection process easy for the client--explaining how each image could be dramatically presented. after the portrait session featuring a large-screen projection of the images for your review and selection.

Classic surface

The "classic surface" is a hand-finished portrait with a protective UV coating.  Depending upon the mood of the portrait, the surface texture may be glossy, satin, fine-linen or, for a super glossy, high-definition finish, metallic.  The classic portraits are mounted on 2mm styrene, which is a perfectly flat and smooth plastic that eliminates the "orange peel" that can appear with an inferior quality backing.  Allen will help you select the perfect surface texture for your portrait.

 

Canvas surface

The ultimate in color photography, printed on canvas, lacquered, and mounted on 1/4" gator foam board, ready for framing.  This technique eliminates distracting reflections and has the look of a master painter's portrait. 

 

 

Canvas Gallery WrapsNote that for the same price, we can create a "Giclée  canvas gallery wrap."  Photos are printed directly onto canvas using high quality archival inks.  The canvas print is then wrapped around a stretcher

frame so that 1.5" of the photo's edges are visible on the sides of the frame.  A finishing spray is applied to the front and edge surfaces to protect the print.  The result is a

work of art with a  modern, finished look; it is so finished that the portrait can hang without an expensive frame.  This is an excellent choice if you want a beautiful wall hanging, while managing the expense. 
The photo to the right shows examples of the Giclee canvas gallery wrap.  

 

Metal finish

For the same price as a canvas portrait, the client may select the "metal finsh."  Metal finish prints represent a new art medium for preserving photos by infusing dyes directly into specially coated aluminum sheets.  The high gloss coating takes on an almost magical luminescence.  Because the image is infused into the surface and not on it, the archival qualities of this unique process are unparalleled.  you've never seen a more brilliant impressive print before!  Colors are vibrant and the luminescence is breathtaking.  Detail and resolution are unsurpassed.  To compliment this unique printing method, we have also developed a variety of ultra-modern ways to hang and display your MetalPrints.

 Durable archival prints without glass

  • Brilliant luminescent images
  • Ultra-Hard scratch-resistant surface
  • Waterproof/weatherproof
  • Can be cleaned easily with any commercial glass cleaner

 

Traditional frames

As an alternative to the more modern gallery wrap or metal portraits, you may prefer a beautiful traditional frame.  Traditional frames add a timeless, old-world ambiance to images:  it makes them richer.  Each frame is chosen to harmonize with the portrait and draw the eye into the subject.  We can make that happen as well.

Wedding packages                                                                                           

 

 

 

The wedding pricelist comprises two parts:  (a) the master photographer  fee and (b) the product collection costs.  Both are described below:

 

Master photographer fee

 

Select from one of two options:

 

One master photographer.  Allen Johnson will be your photographer  for up to eight hours.  He will be at your service, composing photographs, whenever you want him, from beginning to end.  An engagement session is included.

$1000

 

One master photographer and his apprentice.  As good as Allen is, he cannot be in two places at once (he tried that once and it made him feel too schizophrenic).  So, if you want to make sure that your wedding is covered from all angles, from the front of the aisle to the back, two photographers are the way to go.  This also enables us to be at two locations at the same time:  one photographer with the groom, the other with the bride.  An engagement session is included.

                                  The World According to George Lee Lewandowski

                                   
                                    DIGITAL PRICES

                                  Sometimes customers only want the digital images on a CD.  Frankly, that is not something a photographer is crazy about.  The risk is that the customer will run off to their local quick-print counter and end up with a print that is less than stellar. 

                                  I cannot guarantee the quality of prints made by another company.  I do guarantee the quality of my prints. If you're not delighted with the print, we'll keep at it until it is right.  The reason I can make that claim is because I use the best professional printer in the country.

                                  Still, some folks insist on receiving only the CD.  Always aiming to please, here are my prices for retouched, high-resolution images on a CD: 

                                  First image:
                                  $250
                                   
                                  Subsequent images:
                                  $125 

                                  For example, let's say that a customer wanted five digital images from a particular photo session.  The price would be calculated as follows:

                                  First image        $250 Second image    $125
                                  Third image       $125 Fourth image     $125 Fifth image        $125

                                  TOTAL               $750

                                  Note:  No discount is applied for the purchase of digital images. 


                                   

                                  ALBUMS

                                  Albums may commemorate a wedding, a senior graduation, a family, or a boudoir photo session.

                                  Our albums are an investment in family history.  These are dazzling albums that you will want to have on the coffee table for all to see--not tucked away in a cupboard to be forgotten.

                                  Our albums are made from the finest materials:

                                  • Hinged to lay flat
                                  • Leather cover or an optional wrap-around metallic image for our 10x10" albums
                                  • 110-pound pearl paper with UV coating
                                  • An optional luster dust cover with plastic laminated protection

                                  The albums may be created in 10x10" format or 5x5" format.  The 5x5" format cover is in heavy laminated paper.  The 10x10" format cover may be in leather or in a metallic image over a hardboard masonite.

                                  Each album may have from 10-40 sides (5-20 double-sided pages).

                                  The price for a 10x10" album is $100/side.  The price for a 5x5" album is $75/side.  An image on the cover of a 10x10" album is counted as one side.  A second 10x10" or 5x5" album is discounted by 50% (no other discounts apply).
