We use a two light setup to bring a three dimensional quality to our photographs. All photographs have minimal shadows with this setup. We also now have a wireless lighting setup.


All photographs are taken digitally with at 18 megapixel camera. This megapixel can produce a beautiful high quality image that can even be used for posters size prints.

To always be prepared, we also have a 10.1 backup camera if an unforeseen technical problem arises.

Color Correction and Editing:

All images are color checked and individually inspected before galleries are published. Sorry but due to the volume of images we handle during our rush season (April – June) we do not offer cosmetic editing or image imposing to proofs. In rare cases, if such a request is made and authorized by the school and photographer, a standard per hour rate will be charged to the school for editing.
