YOUR PORTRAIT STUDIO
Professional photographers, we are specialized in studio portrait in Paris and Arles. Our studio sessions are intended for both individuals and professionals. We create individual portraits, couple photography, family portraits, group pictures, portraits of children and expectant mothers. We have two photography studios, one in Arles, between Nîmes and Aix en Provence and the other in Paris in the 18th.
What is your approach in portrait studio?
Our studio portraitist approach is human-centered: the expressions, the character of a face, complicity, it is the model personality that spring on the final portrait.
Mostly in black and white, our studio pictures are without artifice, is the look of the person photographed and the beauty of the light upon their strength. Our approach to studio portrait is in a modern spirit, simple and timeless. We are two portraitists bringing a magazine look, modern and full of character with a true photographic appreciation.
What happens during a portrait session?
A session lasts about 1 hour, during which time we take care to lead with gentleness and humor to make this portrait photo session a good time for you. We are well aware that it is not always easy to pose in front of a big lens and it is our role to lead this session so that it remains a good memory and the images are up to your expectations.
Used for many years to photograph people who do not love to pose, you can rely on our expertise and let you take him to live the unique experience of face to face between the model and the professional photographer. And believe us, there are no people who are not photogenic: the eye of the photographer that makes the difference.
What is your technique? How will we get the pictures?
We take great care of the development and the quality of our photographic files: All our pictures are taken in RAW format with 55 million pixels for best results. Then, we work on every portrait, one by one, by hand, to achieve a professional look and a beautiful black and white with shades and contrasts, with a nice range of grays, deep blacks and whites bright.
A few days after the session portraits, we deliver digital black and white files, all optimized and copyright free for your personal use with your family or for your business communication. Pictures are delivered via a private platform where you can view, download and share all the pictures. We specialize in the black and white photo and the technical development of black and white.
Do you make portraits in color too?
Our eyes see in black and white, our portraits take on their full dimension with the beautiful rendering of the contrast in black and white and the development work that we carry out after the shooting. The black and white portrait is flattering and timeless as the color and brings a touch of chic that has no color: just open any major fashion magazine for the pervasiveness of black and white and the charm of this process. However, on request, it is possible to develop a selection of color images. This additional work is very different from black and white development work and asks a slight additional cost calculated based on the number of desired color images. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions on this subject.
How many people can you shoot in the same time?
We chose to make our sessions in rather small studio for more privacy and that our models are comfortable quickly, so we are limited to 5 people (adult, teen or child) at the same time. We carry out family pictures in small groups and associations. For family photos with children under 6 years old, we can not guarantee the outcome, it is the baby that directs the session and it all depends on his mood!
What are your rates for a studio portrait session?
For a session in one of our studios, our price starts at € 350 and includes shooting of one person or a couple for about 1 hour, and delivery of 20 black and white images optimized and slightly retouched in high definition and copyright free. Contact us for a session with two + individual photo and family photos, the time of shooting and post-treatment is longer and the number of recovered photos larger.
