Your Collaborative Experience
Andrew Bowen Studios
Come for a visit! Meeting your photographer and touring the studio creates more excitement and reduces stress about the actual photoshoot. During your visit, you can tell me more about what you want to accomplish, share any ideas you might have, and ask plenty of questions. If you’ve already collected inspiration images, you can share them and tell me what you love about them. I’ll share my inspiration gallery with you as well to help get your imagination going. A video chat is an option, if necessary.
Your safety is paramount; you have about an hour to stretch and warm up when you arrive. We will look at any inspiration images you’ve sent and create an initial plan for the day during that time. We always start with something fully grounded and stretchy to make sure you are moving well.
During your shoot, remember that we are peers and collaborators. If you don’t love what we are creating, speak up, even if it is about how I’m lighting the image. An image where you love your form but don’t love the photography isn’t a success. If you feel you want to try a variation because you don’t love something about a leg or arm line, say the word, and we will find a solution together. I want you to exercise your voice as an artist fully!
Parents or friends are welcome to watch the session in the studio or relax in the lounge next door. BTS shots are always welcome, especially when they show off my fantastic dance skills like this one.
Your digital files are usually ready within two weeks. The files are emailed to you and uploaded into an app that can be saved on your phone’s home screen and shared with friends and family. Once the images are approved, they are sent to a professional photo lab for printing and are generally available for pick-up within a week of approval.
5. Enjoy the Memories
I believe in the power of prints. I highly recommend adding printed copies of your accomplishment so you have them in an album or scrapbook to look back on. Additionally, a favorite photo, or set of favorites, may be printed on metal or canvas for a wall display that will make the artwork we’ve created part of your home. Lastly, I offer locally crafted storage boxes with matted images, as well as gorgeous albums.
My goals for you at every photoshoot:
- Learn more about yourself as an artist
- Feel a genuine sense of accomplishment
- Get a great workout
- Have a blast!
