Photographic Services - carlgrim

Photographic services offered from my studio in Fareham, Hampshire include   bespoke one to one lighting tutorials and private commissions.

One to One Lighting Tutorials

Bespoke one to one lighting tutorials enables the client to set the agenda.  I follow a broad structure but tailor the specifics to the requests and competence/experience of the individual attending. These requests typically range from preparing the skin, selecting and setting up the lighting, working with the model, taking the image and then processing it in Lightroom and its related plug-ins. Rope work tuition in Shibari can be included by special arrangement.

Tutorials are practical  "hands on camera" sessions and would generally be for half a day with a model selected by the client. Facilities available for these tutorials include a fully equipped conventional studio in a converted 19th century coach house with original floors, a natural stone wall and a wet area, a heated indoor pool  that can be used for underwater photography, a range of props including a vintage car and a large private garden.  Attendees can expect to come away from sessions like this with beautiful images and the specific skills to re-create these again in the future. To make the tutorial more productive, I send attendees my detailed notes on "Lighting the Nude" for pre-reading.

The attendee to arrange and pay for the model.  If required, I can arrange a model or make recommendations and provide an introduction.

Cost for a half day session (excluding model fees) -  £180. 

Private Commissions

Private commissions can take on any form within the photographic genre within which I am skilled. These could range from specialised model or artist portfolios to personal momento shoots for one or two people.

My "Beyond Boudoir"  product is particularly popular.  Its objective is to use the studio's unique facilities to create images that are different to the normal boudoir images - ranging from the adventurous to the elegantly erotic.

Generally these shoots would take place at my studio in Fareham (see paragraph above for facilities available) but reasonable travel will be considered where for example a couple would like me to photograph them in their home. 

The "Beyond Boudoir" package includes - 

- four hour photo shoot

- a minimum of forty quality worked images

- full sized and web sized digital images

-twenty  page 320mm x 280mm (13 x 11 inches) photo book

- all raw images from the shoot should the client request this for confidentiality purposes

- assistance with the placing of an order for enlargements from a quality printing house

Cost £550, 50% payable to secure a date and the balance on the day of the shoot
