Carl Schurz Park Sessions

More still than Central Park, Carl Schurz Park offers expansive views of the East River, cobblestone walkways, and lush greenery. If you enjoy parks, CSP is a hidden gem.

UES Street Scene Sessions

Perfect for someone who wants a more contemporary feel to their photographs. Street photos just look cool. Great for headshots, couples, and portraits. Limited to the areas out and around (within a 10-minute walking distance) my home studio.

East River Sessions

Almost an extension of Carl Schurz Park, the John Finley Walk gets you up close and personal with The East River. Choose this location if you'd really love the look and feel of the river in the background of your photographs.

THE TERMS & FAQ

Where do your sessions take place?

The shooting location for my scaled-down mini-sessions is limited to specific areas (within 10-minute walking distance of my personal home studio) of Carl Schurz Park, The East River (John Finley Walkway area), and the streets of the UES. This makes them convenient for me, thus affordable for you. You may choose 1 of the 3 aforementioned session locations per session. For further location specifics/limitations, please inquire.

I do not travel to locations other than specified above for mini-sessions. Exceptions can be made if you have a time limitation or for whatever reason require significantly less shooting time. I'm happy to travel to you for a mini-session with the additional pricing of transit being covered by you in advance.

How many looks can I do?

These scaled-down mini-sessions are no-muss no fuss, and cost-effective therein I limit these to 1 look. No exceptions.

When will I receive my photographs?

You will receive an online gallery link with all of your photographs within (maximum) two weeks. This gallery will remain available for you to view, download, and share your photographs for two months.

Do you require a retainer? / / Why do you require a retainer?

Do you require a retainer? / / Why do you require a retainer?

In order to secure a session with me, you must provide me with a retainer. This retainer covers my time, the forfeiture of future sessions, and personal schedule adjustments made by me in an attempt to accommodate your specific date/time request. If you do not feel comfortable providing me with a retainer, I am not the photographer for you.

My 50% retainer is due at the time of the session date confirmation and is (mostly) non-refundable. This clause is not without reason though, so if you find yourself needing to cancel and cannot reschedule (because you are from out of town, or for any other valid emergency-type reason) I'm happy to provide you with a full or partial refund.

What about inclement weather? / / What if it rains, snows...?

If your full session is taking place outdoors- In case of rain, we will reschedule. I do not shoot portraits/headshots or anything other than events/weddings in the rain. (Unless that is part of the creative vision that we have discussed prior to the shoot.) If you are unable to reschedule because you are coming into NYC from out of town I'll happily refund your money.

I am from out of town and will be unable to reschedule. What now?

If the cancelation is being made by me/you due to weather (or if I cancel for any reason), I'm happy to provide you with a full refund.

May I have extra photographs?

Yes! If you'd like to receive more photographs than your Mini-Session Collection allows, I'm happy to provide them to you at a fee of $5 per photograph.

May I have additional retouching?

Photographs delivered to you will be retouched to adjust minor blemishes, color, light, and the overall look and feel of the image.

If you desire any further manipulation of your images please feel free to let me know.

Advanced retouching can be provided at an additional cost of $5-$10 per image.

How many locations can we shoot at?

1 location.

The shooting location for my scaled-down mini-sessions is limited to a .3 mile radius of my home studio. This makes them convenient for me, thus affordable for you.

Exceptions can be made if you have a time limitation or for whatever reason require significantly less shooting time. I'm happy to travel to you for a mini-session with the additional pricing of transit being covered by you in advance.

How do you handle cancelations?

Lateness.

I'm not unreasonable in regards to running late for a photo shoot, I get it. That said, if you are going to be anything more than 10-15 minutes late please let me know as soon as you start to suspect this is going to be the case. You can inform me via text/phone using the phone number provided during the reservation process.
