As Studio Graphics is my own company, career and passion, I take extreme pride in my work. When photographing a client's products, I take the same care as if they were mine. Prior to opening my own studio, I contracted for product photography while on the marketing staff of a Fortune 500 company. I learned first hand the importance of a photographer meeting deadlines while also staying within budget. Subsequently, I was on the vendor's side of the desk, training and photographing products at a production house and as an in-house photographer for a major Boston advertising agency. I have photographed products for small, medium and large companies alike for several years.
Some clients have used my product shots in the full page, four color ads that appeared in several major magazines such as Woman's Day, Good Housekeeping, Ladies Home Journal, Family Circle, Red Book, McCall's and the New Yorker. My photography fee is less than half of the standard rate in the industry, as money is not my main concern. My focus is on doing a superior job for my clients, because I rely on their repeat business. Conveniently located in downtown New Haven, I can shoot either in my studio or at a customer's facility, as my equipment is portable and adaptable for location work. I welcome the opportunity to be of help on your next photography project.
