I am a graphic designer not a typist

December 15, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

 

I am an artist holding a Bachelor Degree in Fine Arts with more than twelve years experience in photography, fine art, restoration and graphic design (brochures,logos,book covers,page layout, posters, business card, flyers, calendars,ads,direct mail, menus, collages and more).

 

Yes... I love graphic design... and I have a passion for it just like the rest of the world.

I use three different Adobe programs in order to archive the professional results.

For retouching and adjusting images, colors, enhancements and photo manipulations I used Adobe Photoshop.

To create vector images as logos or illustrations I used Adobe Illustrator.

I use Adobe InDesign to laying out printed materials such as: posters, brochures, business cards, book covers, flyers, collages, postcards, direct mail, menus, mailers and advertising flyers.

1. Adobe Photoshop for retouching, manipulating and mocking
up the photos.
2. Adobe Illustrator to create vector images, logos or illustrations.
3. Adobe InDesign to laying out the first two steps in one rendering.


WELCOME TO OUR NEW REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY GALLERY

The photograph is almost always the first element in any ad that connects with the buyer. It is the handshake, the first impression, the thing that cuts through the visual clutter to capture the buyer’s attention.
 
Everything in the marketing campaign to sell your home relies on the quantity and quality of the photographs of your home. Photographs are needed for the MLS listing on the Web and in print, a website, brochures, flyers, photoboards, newspaper ads, possible magazine articles, real estate preview guides, blogs, etc.
 
Many times, buyers will decide if they will visit a home, and agents will decide if they will show a property based on the strength (or weaknesses) of the photos accompanying a listing. Quality photos can and do make a difference, a big difference.
 
 
 
What to expect:
 
The house being professionally photographed (interior and exterior) and around 20 to 25 images delivered, including images for MLS listing- all images on CD with copyright release .

· The maternity newborn package includes two portrait sessions: your maternity session (scheduled during the last trimester of pregnancy) as well as your newborn session (Newborn sessions are best photographed either within the first 14 days or between 2-3 months).
 
· Maternity sessions generally last from 30 to 60 minutes and may include your spouse/partner and children. The newborn session is often lasting 1 to 2 hours to allow plenty of time for eating, changing between photographs.
 
· I will never hurry you along and we can take all the time needed to be sure that we get a good selection of portraits for you to choose from.
 
· Newborns and young babies often need the most time as they will often require comforting, soothing and nursing.
 
· Personal and private online photo gallery and slideshow that can be shared with family and friends.

I always like the candid shoots before the wedding ceremony.

February 25, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

 

Boy, seems like yesterday I took this picture and it’s been two years now. I always like the candid shoots before the wedding ceremony when bride and groom get dress and family, friends  and guests get all together. Each time when I book a wedding, brides tell me  they don’t care too much about “getting dress” shoots.  I always explain to them, before ceremony is a good  time to introduce myself and my assistant and take some of the best candid shoots. Before ceremony I like to sneak between guests and family and try to catch some of the best moments. I always tell people "I test the light and equipment" and they shouldn’t look at the camera but most of them become curios and then is when they become familiar with the camera and  photographer. Let’s face it: who likes to have his or her picture taken at a wedding? Is not enough that you are attending the wedding? Now you have to sit still in front of a  guy who looks like a “paparazzi?” The answer is in more than 10 years of shooting weddings I have a few guys who wanted to be in all pictures.

This shoot was one of them: the best man told me up  front” buddy don’t even think you’ll get a picture with me because I’m don’t like it”  but he was willing to pose when I wasn’t around him. When he was getting ready   to walk down the aisle I took this shoot: the rings were  folded in a tissue. I showed him the pictures, he liked what he saw and he became “my buddy” at the wedding.
