Business Portraits at The Art Spirit Gallery

To get the new year well under way, Photos by Poe is teaming up with The Art Spirit Gallery (Facebook page here) to offer for a limited time professional photographic portraits for use as business or online profile photos, at a special rate.

These portraits use classic studio-style lighting and solid-color backgrounds to produce an elegant, timeless look. They'll be taken in Coeur d'Alene's most prestigious artistic space, The Gallery itself, in order to offer the city's professionals a way to upgrade their images that is both affordable and convenient.

For every portrait purchased, Photos by Poe and The Art Spirit Gallery will donate a portion of the proceeds to Coeur d'Alene's Emerge Gallery, which was recently burned out of its existing space during the early-morning fire of January 20.

Since the portraits are delivered to you as digital files via an online gallery, they are easy to download and post on your professional website or social media page. But because they are hand-edited, high-resolution images, they also are suitable for printing and hanging on a wall, or putting in a standup frame to brighten up someone's desk. You can have them printed at your local photo finisher, but you'll also be able to purchase professional-grade prints directly through the online gallery.

We'll be taking the professional portraits in The Gallery on Thursday, February 6 and Thursday, February 20. You can register for a session by clicking the button below. The price is $49 for one fully edited image (our regular price for hand-edited professional portraits is $99). Additional fully edited images from the same session are $20 each. If you are absolutely unavailable on the 6th or the 13th, please email us and we will try to arrange another time slot. (Bonus: if you book a session on the 6th, we'll turn it around quickly enough that you can have your portrait made into a Valentine's picture or card at your local photofinisher.)

We use classic studio-style lighting to produce images that will stand the test of time. During your session, we'll take multiple shots. After the session, you will be able to choose your favorite image from a selection of at least four shots, which you can view in the online gallery.

Once you've made your choice, we'll fully hand-edit your selected image (including retouching for blemishes, flyaway hairs etc), and then post the finished version online for you as a high-resolution electronic file. This final digital image will be suitable for printing and framing, or posting on a website or in social media.
