The best head shot photography service you can get

Hello everyone,

I’d like to dedicate this post to business head shots.

Professional Business Head Shot Photographer in Miami

Miami Lawyers: Alonso, Perez & Santos

 

Most people need business head shots and take the time and money to do so, but I will explain what makes a good business photo and how you should go about finding someone to do it for you.

Professional Business Head Shot Photographer in Miami

Doctor’s Professional Head Shot

 

To start, I’ll mention something I’ve said before: You will find all kinds of styles and prices in the head shot photography world. On one hand, you’ll find the $75.00 head shot photographer that will take 2 hours with you and hand over all the images on a CD for you to do with that as you please. On the other hand, you will stumble upon a photographer that will charge you $150.00 and hand over 1 professionally finished photo that everyone will be jealous about. What do you do? You know you have the budget where you can spend $150.00 but you don’t want to “waste” your money so you end up considering the $75.00 man. Remember, in the service industry YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. There isn’t an industry standard for photography, so it is very difficult to get photographers to follow certain guidelines that guarantee a certain value. In the automobile industry, you at least have the peace of mind that every car is made to withstand certain crashes, speeds, and situations just because there are standards that MUST be followed. In the photography world, it isn’t like that at all.

On to my next point, I want you to understand what is wrong with the $75.00 guy. He’s not a real professional. Unfortunately, that amount of money for 2 hours of shooting time, another 30 minutes of editing, travel time, gas, and use of equipment probably equals to about $28.00 an hour and I’m not even counting equipment devaluation that has to be taken into account. If his clients are very happy and recommendations are coming, he would have a lot of work. And with a lot of work, he would have to charge more. Clients that fall into the $75.00 dollar man’s lap, are usually price shopping and learn late that they just threw away that money because they will be repeating the photos with someone else (for more money, but more quality).

The $150.00 man will spend with a customer 1 hour shooting, 30 minutes selecting the final image, and 20 minutes finishing the job by editing and retouching. The 1 hour shoot is special though. He will ask what profession you’re in, give you the perfect pose, take various shots smiling, serious, both profiles of your face, half body, arms crossed, hands in pocket, etc. When you finally sit down with him, he’ll show you all photos and end up selecting the perfect one for you and your business. Once selected, the final editing and retouching will take place. You will leave with a photo that will last you 5-8 years. Based on this timing and price, this photographer is making around $70.00 an hour.

Why am I making this comparison? It’s obvious to any businessman that something that is worth more is usually better. The truth is that many of our customers open up to us and their experience they had last month with the $75.00 guy. Yeah, they took their head shots again and are kicking themselves because they spent the time and money on something that was no good the first time around. Don’t let this happen to you. Our information is below if you are interested in professional business head shots.

High VS Low Resolution Pictures

This post is to teach our customers about the difference between High and Low Resolution photos.

There is one basic explanation to differentiate the two: High Resolution has print quality while Low Resolution is for computer use.

Take these 2 pictures for example:

Real Estate Head Shots Miami Head Shot Photography

Believe it or not, the top one is Low Resolution and the bottom is High Resolution. You can prove this by right clicking on each photo and opening them on an image editing software or printing them.

To the eye, it makes no difference. But to a printer, there is a HUGE difference. Take a look at these two photos:

hi-low-res-sample

A photo make look great on your computer screen, but once printed you might come up with a highly pixelated image.

The reason we are posting about this is because we want to educate our customers about what they are buying. Many people think that a low resolution photo is bad; it’s actually a necessity depending on what the use of the photo is. Have you seen those websites where photos take forever to load on your screen, and you end up getting tired of it and moving on to the next website? That’s because they’re High Resolution files when they should be Low Resolution.

Now, just because a file is High Resolution it doesn’t mean you can print large photos. This is where it gets tricky: Digital photos have 3 sizes to them.

1. Total File Size (Measured in Kilobytes or Megabytes)

2. Picture size (Measured in feet, inches, centimeters, etc)

3. PPI (Pixels per inch – This is what makes an image high resolution)

Take this for example:

You may have a High Resolution photo (with 300 PPI) but the size of the photo is only 2×3 inches (Wallet Sized). If you try to print this photo at a 16×20 Inch size, there will be pixels.

If you have a 2×3 inch photo at 96 PPI (Low Resolution), and try to print it at the exact 2×3 inches, there will also be pixels.

But print the 2×3 inch photo in High Resolution, you will have a crisp image if printed the same size (sometimes a bit bigger will work as well).

The total file size is giving you the size it takes up in your hard drive, but it won’t tell you if the file is good enough to be high resolution.

To finalize this post, you can have the exact same photo in high and low resolution and you will only see the difference once printed (or very zoomed in on a computer software).

We want our customers to know they are safe in our hands!

Thanks for reading and have us in mind for your Wedding Photos, Family Photos, Newborn and Maternity Photos and much more! We are photographers with a lot of experience and even more love for what we do!

Miami Real Estate Photographer – Sell Properties Faster

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

Hi everyone!

To introduce another service we provide I decided to write a post on Real Estate Photography.

Many realtors and homeowners take their samsung or iphone and use it to photograph a property they are selling to promote it online. Fortunately, this will help sell a property much faster than having no pictures at all; but unfortunately, these photos only get you so far. According to a study done by Redfin (http://www.redfin.com/research/reports/special-reports/2013/professional-photos-2013.html#.U-Tsj_ldXPs), homes listed with professional photography sell much faster and easier than with non-professional photographs.

Note: just because you shoot a 2.5 million dollar home with a professional $6000.00 Nikon camera, it doesn’t make it a professional picture. Take into account that learning to shoot and post process are also part of the product of great photography.

Our pricing starts at $300.00 and includes all edited photos on a CD for Web use.

Photographer for Gay Wedding in Miami

Tags

, , , , , , , , , ,

Hi everyone!

This blog isn’t about tradition. Well, it kind of is because recording events with a professional photographer is a tradition in itself. It is also traditional to have memories in physical form instead of the modern way: hard drives, USB’s, CD’s and the mysterious “cloud.” Even though our job is mostly used by our “traditional” clients, I have to let you know that we do non-traditional things as well (which in a close future, will become traditions with enough usage).

I’d like to say that even though “marriage” is defined by our state government as only heterosexual, the truth is that marriage goes a lot further than that. It’s about love and a commitment to spend the rest of your life with someone, whether man or woman.

Gay marriage has become a political fight between those that think they are doing the public good, and those that believe that we should have the freedom of equality. We aren’t directly involved in politics, but we don’t condone the “different” treatment of any race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or people with different ideas. This is why we welcome gay couples to come into our studio and hire us for the wedding. Gay weddings are the same as straight weddings, with the only difference in that there’s 2 people joining that are of the same sex.

Give us a call and trust us. Our work speaks for itself.

Thanks for reading!

Outdoors family Photography

Hi Everyone!

This post will be dedicated to family photography in outdoors locations in Miami and those who wish to hire a photographer for this occasion.

Many people run away from the idea of hiring a photographer for some family portraits because it’s hard to analyze this market. On one hand, you have photographers that will charge thousands of dollars, and then you have others that will do the whole job for only $300.00 and give away the digital images and maybe even include an enlargement.

I will try to ease your mind and make it easier to understand the world of photography🙂

We are all used to seeing prices for things we have purchased before or are of very popular demand. For example, we know cars range from around $16,000 to 1 Million; we also know we will spend around $50.00 at the movies, and that a fancy dinner for 2 can cost you upwards of $200.00. This we know, and we know because we’ve all done this before.

But hiring a photographer? For a Family Portrait Session? Very few of us have ever done that but it’s simple: the more you pay, the better artist and service you will receive. You get what you pay for… (Usually)

Hiring a pro photographer for a session is the most personalized way to create a memory and purchasing a piece of decoration for your home. Why purchase a wall decorative piece that has no real value, when you can create a work of art of you and your family and use that to accentuate your home? You can choose your location, clothing, poses, colors, whether in black and white or color, size, frame, etc. I’d like to show you the picture that me and my wife put up in our home:

couples'photographer-miami

Although it isn’t a “family portrait” because we don’t have any kids, this picture has pushed all friends and family to create their own image and have it on their wall (remember, there are plenty of walls apart from the one on Facebook).

Here are other samples:

Family-portrait-photographer-Miami-Delio-Photo-Studio 05 01 Family low res 002 DrF 14 FN Family Portrait Photography by Delio Photo Studio Family Portrait Photography by Delio Photo Studio Outdoors-Family-Photography-miami--delio-studio

Once you have the idea of where you want to have your Family Portrait done (whether it’s the beach, at home, the park, Wynwood, Vizcaya, The Biltmore, or in studio), think about where you would like this piece of art placed and from there we can discuss the final piece size.

I’d like NO ONE to forget, these photographs aren’t just for us. Our children, our children’s children and so on, will have memories of who we were. Let’s not become the generation of lost memories.

Thanks for reading and if you have any comments, please pitch in!
