Why Choose Custom Photography
February 26th, 2008 by admin
Custom Photography as something "special"
Custom photography is more of a luxury than your entry level cookie
cutter chain experience. Custom photography truly is not for everyone, it
requires a level of commitment, investment in time and money,
forethought and planning on the part of the subject/client and requires a
larger time commitment for the photographer as well.
Clients who enjoy taking a more active role in the creation of their
families’ memories have the desire to have portrait art that is truly
personalized. These more discerning clients have been known to budget
and allot time for a custom photography session. Many clients opt for it to
be a once a year special experience, some opt to have custom photography
sessions done to record their child’s stages in life. Having said this, it is
clear that custom photography is not in everyone’s budget, it is something
that most families save for to splurge on from time to time to memorialize
their children as they really are (not posed and primped in the cookie
cutter studio setting).
There is a great deal of time involved in creating high end custom
photography sessions for a client. The luxury of great service, better
choices and a supberb end product. The result of all this are heirloom
quality images. The time invested at the session is only a small portion of
time involved in this process.
Custom photography has been likened to purchasing a fine vehicle. To get
to point B from A let’s face it, even a bus ride would suffice. If you want
to luxuriate in a finely appointed vehicle, customizing your own experience
by listening to smooth jazz while sitting in a climate controlled setting
adjusted purely for your comfort in a body hugging leather interior,
perhaps that Lexus you so desire is your cup of tea. <!--[if !

It is the Lexus of the photography world. It is where the intangibles make
the experience truly wonderful and the images themselves make the
investment of money and time truly worthwhile.
Custom photography can be broken down into even more levels. There
are on location, studio, mixed studio/on location, specialty location and
destination type photographers. The beauty of custom photography is in
the choices and in the luxury of thoses options. The customized service
level you are sure to experience will be amazing. The knowledge that your
final images are the result of someone caring about those moments so
much that they take extra time ensuring that the artwork you receive is
good enough to stand by with their name on it. That level of quality and
commitment is all but lost in the age of "mass produced," "mass
marketed," corporate "everyone is a number". Custom photography is
based on being unique to you. How great an experience would be, to be
able to sit back and allow a photographer to do this highly custom work
for images that you will most likely cherish for a lifetime?
Keep in mind more than anything that the Lexus will never appreciate in
value the way your portraits will. The portrait art you become invested in
from your custom photographer will no doubt increase in value and
become more priceless as the years pass.
