Local photo studio in downtown State College, with seamless backdrops designed for product photography, catalog images or for selling on Amazon.
I am also available for events, commercial projects, manufactured products, advertising, new construction, architecture and more.
With more than 25 years of experience, I can work under almost any circumstances, including low-light, mixed-lighting, cramped spaces, odd locations and more.
If you do not have an art department, I am also expert in the digital darkroom, so I can make a number of post-process corrections and improvements. These include color balance and grading, exposure compensation, lens-distortion correction, perspective control, panoramic stitching and more. I can process your images to be press or web-ready.
If your project requires models, I work with a number of local professionals, billed separately.
You may have seen my work in books, magazines, billboards, web sites and other marketing collateral. My clients include Adidas, Adobe, Ann Beha Architects, Applebee's, ESPN, Mount Nittany Medical Center, Sorinex, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, The Wall Street Journal, Grateful Dead Productions, Comcast, Bank of America, Penn State University and many more.
Stock sales are welcome, with rates negotiable depending on the image and its intended use. My stock collection includes thousands of photos from Civil War battlefields, historic sites, the Penn State University campus and various landscapes and natural settings.
All freelance work is billed at a one-time negotiated fee or on an hourly basis, as appropriate. My standard rate (on-location) is $400 plus $100 per hour, but varies from project to project, depending upon your exact needs. If your project has an associated budget, please let me know in advance so we can keep to it.
