Many Maine artists rely on us to photograph their artwork. We work side by side with the artists to ensure that the photographs we create of their work is exactly what they want. Our entire system is color calibrated and we only use the highest quality lenses, lights and cameras. We are capable of dealing with all the issues that arise when shooting artwork. We regularly photograph paintings on every type of media from canvas to wood, sculptures of all sizes and location installations.
Our photographs have been featured in Art New England, Maine Home and Design, Downeast Magazine and many catalogs and art books. We’ve photographed many installations and shows for the Portland Museum of Art, Space Gallery, Aucocisco Gallery, Icon Contemporary Art, Ogunquit Museum of Contemporary Art and more. We work very hard to make sure that our clients leave with the best quality images possible.
We design and photograph a portfolio that is targeted at getting the model hired for real jobs. Our model portfolio shoots are intended to create ad-like images for models to build or spice up their portfolio. It is our intent to show that you can model a variety of looks or characters. We don’t base our portfolio shoots on a formula, rather they are based on what works best for your look, age, body style, etc. A good model portfolio will show you in a range of looks. The younger and older you can look, the more potential you have for landing jobs. Your portfolio should also represent the type of work you want to do. If you’d like to be a catalog model then you should have catalog like images in your portfolio. If you’d like to be a fitness model, then you should have a variety of fitness images in your book. We have a variety of shoot packages and can customize a package based on your specific needs. Ask us about our Comp Card (Zed Card) design and print services.

If you’re an actor or a model, your headshot is a huge part of your resume and is the first thing they’ll see when considering you for a role or an audition. Your headshot should show your personality and should represent you, as a professional. Our experience in cinematography and filmmaking has given us the right perspective for creating great headshots. We know what casting directors look for in these images and how to get the best out of you on set. While you’re in the studio for a headshot, ask us about our actor reels and talking headshots. There’s nothing like a little HD video to spice up your portfolio.
Additionally we shoot corporate and business headshots based on your specific business needs.
