Light and Dark: Two Recent Business Portraits

Rebecca is a new sales rep for a real estate agency in Burlington. She had a very clear vision of what she wanted for her first business portrait. I did my best to to fulfill her wishes._MG_7928-Edit-640px-logo

Anthony is a mortgage broker in Burlington. Although -- and I don't often say this! -- he may have missed his calling as a model._MG_7769-Edit-640px-logo

Gus remembered me from the engagement shoot. He still wasn't very impressed:

A Different Portrait of Dr. R.

After we photographed the portrait to be used on the cover of Dr. R.'s book, we moved to the studio and produced this one.  It will be used on his website, where he promotes his professional training business._MG_1143-Edit-2-800px-logo

P. Family Album Digitization and Restoration Project

Old family albums often have a great deal of emotion and meaning attached to them, and this was certainly the case with the one that Ms. P. brought to me. It was very important to her that contents of her album be carefully documented, accurately duplicated for digital preservation, and in some cases restored. I carefully disassembled the album, performed high resolution, high bit depth scans of all of its pages, and then reassembled the album. From the scans that I made of album's 24 pages, I extracted the 96 photos that they contained. And now I have begun restoring some of the damaged photographs.Lumacraft-Lumacraft-Scan-140108-0002-Edit-2-before-after-copy-800pxA

Book Cover Portrait for Dr. R.

Dr. R. is a medical professional and a trainer.  In his spare time, he has written his first novel, a medical thriller.  Dr. R. commissioned me to produce this portrait of him, which will appear on the back or inside cover of the book, due to be published shortly.
