[Fort-Collins]*[Photographers]

You want to hire the best photographer you can find, because you don't hire them often. Likely you are new to the area and looking for someone with artistic talent in the work that they do. I am a highly skilled and trained photographer with over 16 years of experience and a developed eye for lighting, technique, locations and poses for my clients. There are a ton of talented photographers in Fort Collins, and it is indeed a competitive market, so you are in luck! There is no shortage of skill out there, but I am sure to please you both with my price and portfolio. I offer sessions which cover the entire family and also just the kids if you aren't in the mood to be in the spotlight.

Ghostwriting services pair nicely with product photography if you need someone to write on your blog, create an eBook for you or create product descriptions on your e-commerce platform or website. A ghostwriter is skilled in SEO, so that when they write for you they are keeping your search ranking in mind. I provide this service to businesses in the Fort Collins, CO and other surrounding areas for bloggers, magazines and other local publishers.

I am sure you are wondering why I would ever enjoy allowing someone else to steal my thunder. The most simple answer I can give to you is that I am but a shy internet ghost and I don't really like attention.

The editing process that I use keeps your pictures looking like you, but enhances your best qualities and features! The session will take the least amount of time while editing is what consumes the majority of any photographer's time. Editing may be done to brighten your eyes, make colors pop out, remove temporary blemishes like pimples and enhance the quality of your skin. The goal is not to make you look like a different person, but to help you feel more comfortable when sharing your pictures with the public.

i am a photographer that makes you look not just good, but damn good.

I do not put a time limit on sessions, as my goal instead is to deliver quality images to you regardless of how long it takes. Therefore all of my pricing is based upon number of images to be delivered. This is important, especially with children, who may not be cooperative and may take a bit of time to warm up. I do it this way also because I deliver a specific number of images.

For short sessions, I recommend setting aside approximately 45 minutes to an hour for your photos, and for full sessions I recommend setting aside about 1.5 to 2 hours for your session to allow enough time for a location change and any outfit changes you may desire.

In Fort Collins, splitting the cost of living isn't uncommon, and it can help you save money while still getting everything you need.

Here are seven ways to cut down costs when hiring a photographer, including buddy/shared sessions, volunteerism, payment plans and some DIY tips!

Ahhh! Autumn is already here, and it's about time to start preparing for the winter. This is a popular time for family and senior portraits with the beautiful color changes in foliage, and urban changes like the hanging of the lights downtown. Be prepared for shifts between nice weather and extreme weather, and to look for ways to accommodate your photoshoot in different settings with indoor and outdoor locations, or both! It's not uncommon for Fort Collins photographers to experience an extreme boost in business during this time, especially for those who specialize in family, childrens and headshot photography. Believe me, I have been in the business long enough to witness the panic experienced by clients as they realize fall is closing in on them.

Winter time can be intimidating for photographers who shoot on location and their clients too! Because of the snow, cold and the limited options available it can be a major challenge when it comes to selecting places to shoot in Fort Collins. First and foremost: stop freaking out about snow or cold weather. It is possible to take fantastic photographs and still have a good time. Simply dress for the weather, and work together as client and photographer to find a great location or two. Rather than being afraid of the snow, hope for it! The snow can add an extra layer of excitement to your pictures that weren't there before. Winter isn't as scary as it sounds, especially when clients want something a little bit different than what everyone else is using.
