Our Photography Services
DYNAMIC PHOTO SHOOTS
Have an event you want photographed? Whether it's a party, a conference, a dance, a business meeting or a banquet, our classic yet modern photojournalistic techniques capture the action for you as it happens. And after we capture what's important, we use state of the art digital technology to deliver the images to you while they're still fresh.
We also make the entire process as simple as possible. Our online booking system lets you choose the number of hours of photography you need; specify the date, time and location; and pay electronically. After the shoot, we choose a variety of the best shots, lightly edit them for consistency and color balance, and post them in a password-protected online gallery so you can look at, share, and download them. You can also purchase high-quality prints and other products through the online storefront.
Sometimes you need a picture that's more polished and permanent. A family portrait that you can print large and hang on a wall, for example. Or a business portrait that projects the professional image you want online and in print. Such portraits typically involve more painstaking posing, composition and lighting than do higher-volume dynamic photos. They also deserve customized hand editing to make sure they stand the test of time. We call these hand-crafted images, and we offer two varieties of them.
Friends, family and personal portraits are typically taken in an attractive outdoor or indoor setting, using a combination of natural and supplemental lighting to produce striking, publication-quality images. During a session of up to one hour, booked through our online system, we take a variety of shots. Afterwards, we post a selection of the best in a preview gallery. After you choose the one you like most, we edit it by hand and post it for you to download. Edited versions of additional preview shots are available for an additional editing fee.
Professional portrait sessions happen at your workplace or another significant location. The background can be either your working environment or a solid-color backdrop that we set up on-site. Pricing is again simple: a flat fee for the basic shoot and first fully edited portrait, and an additional per-image for every edited portrait thereafter, whether of the same person or of additional individuals participating in the shoot.
SOCIAL MEDIA & DATING PORTRAITS
Pictures for social media and dating sites are a uniquely modern form of portraiture. They look casual, showing you having fun and feeling carefree. But technically and artistically, they have to be polished and professional. They feature distinctive lighting, striking backgrounds and sophisticated poses, and include close-up, waist-up and full-length shots. Overall, they're a lot like what you'd see in a lifestyle magazine or website.
REAL ESTATE PHOTOGRAPHY
Real estate pros know the value of good photography. Elegant, high-quality images can add thousands of dollars to a property's sale price. But creating such images doesn't happen by accident. Mobile phone snaps or even pictures taken with expensive DSLRs leave lots to be desired. This is one type of photo you'll have trouble doing on your own.
Operating an eatery isn't easy, but it's a lot harder when capacity is limited because of pandemic rules. One way around this is offering take-out or delivery service. But that comes with its own set of challenges. Chief among these is letting customers know just how delicious your menu items actually are. That's where food photography by Photos by Poe can help.
Our pictures turn your dishes into the stars of your show. Studio-style lighting, magazine-style composition, dramatic camera angles and customized post-processing combine to create images that looks spectacular on websites, printed materials and even magazine spreads.
ART & PRODUCT PHOTOGRAPHY
Whether you're selling your art or a commercial product, you want photos that show it at its best. We make that as convenient as possible, by bringing a portable studio to your workspace or place of business. Our studio-style flash setups and seamless backgrounds let us produce clean, elegant images. These are ideal for use in printed or online catalogs, or on Instagram or your website. The images we create using real-life settings and backgrounds are just as striking.
