I found there are people that would love to have me as a photographer but can't afford to invest in the more custom Session Fees and Collection offerings I typically offer.
My solution was to create a single day of shooting where I book roughly 8 - 16 sessions where I shoot for a maximum of 20 minutes per session. In that 20 minutes I can shoot a family OR a high school senior OR an individual OR a small group of 2 - 5 siblings (group shot, not individually).
Since there are no session fees for the Mini Session the entire investment must be paid in advance to secure your session time. There are no refunds for missed sessions but I will issue a Gift Certificate for $200 for future purchases with TJ Towers Photography.I will announce through my TJ Towers Photography Facebook page and my blog when the date will be, along with the time slots available and the location of the sessions. I choose the day, times and location unlike in my larger sessions where you can customize the entire experience. Please be sure to "Like" my FB page at http://www.facebook.com/tjtowersphotography and follow my blog to receive notifications of these sessions and my other offerings.
Each Mini Session is $350 and includes the following:
20 minutes maximum with photographer
Choose up to 2 different poses from your session
11x17 Wall Portrait. All Wall Portraits are printed on Kodak Professional ENDURA Paper, are sprayed with a luster protection coat and are mounted onto Gatorboard. Gatorboard is a laminated foam panel board that is durable and resists dents, perfect for mounting photographic prints. Wall Portraits are perfect for framing to display your artwork throughout your home.
3 Gift Portraits (8x10 or smaller) or (25) 5x7 Flat Announcements/Greeting Cards w/ Envelopes
7 Day Web Posting for family and friends to view and purchase products
You can upgrade or add on the following:
Upgrade your Wall Portrait to a Canvas Portrait for an additional $200. Canvases make a bold statement and they are my preferred way to display my photographic art. Our canvases are a high quality print on an artist's canvas. The canvas is stretched over custom-made wood stretcher bars and has a 1.5" depth. They appear to float on your wall and they don't require a frame; the structure is inside the art piece.
Add On 5 additional Gift Portraits (8x10 or smaller) for an additional $200
Spend $750 or more and receive high-resolution digital files with reprinting rights up to 8x10 for $295 each.
I am going to try my first maiden voyage with this offering on Tuesday, July 16th. If you would like to have first choice time slot preference, you can purchase this offering here. I will let you know what time slots are available, the location of the shoot after I receive your purchase order.
