PRE-PLANNING ...with NO cost, obligation, or annoying sales tactics!
BEGIN WITH THE END:
think about what emotions, concepts, or "looks" you envision
for the final images as well as how you may want to display or use them. Perhaps
you have seen other work by Jeff, or some other visual inspiration; you are welcome to
show or describe those to us to help communicate what you have in mind. Working with
AI is a creative collaboration, so your ideas do not need to be "fully baked" before
contacting us. But be sure to convey any specific goals you DO have, so we can
help you determine the best session types and styles.
contact Jeff by phone or email to discuss how best to
achieve your goals, ask initial questions you might have, and set up your
appointments (see below).
SELECT CREATION PACKAGE: package prices include the set of work it will take
to plan and create your initial images. Descriptions and pricing for creation
packages can be found [HERE].
PUT US TO WORK: included in your Creation Package are three important
appointments we'll arrange with you:
- Design Meeting (to plan the details of your session
including set,costume, make-up etc.; ~1 hour)
- Photo Session (studio or location photo shoot; 1+ hours depending
on Creation Package purchased)
- Previewing Consultation AI will help you choose the best images
from your session for printing or other Finishing work, and discuss any modifications
or enhancements to be made. (We do not use high-pressure sales tactics; this is
YOUR session to help you through the creation process). ~1 hour
AI Creation Packages are guaranteed to produce a great set of usable images from
which your finished products can be created.
Based on results of the CREATE phase, your selected images then need to be rendered
into a more finished product. To offer you minimum "risk" and maximum flexibility,
pricing for prints and other finishing work is kept separate from the creation
There are too many options available to list here, in both package and "a la carte"
form. But here's a summary of options (Jeff will help you choose):
POST PRODUCTION: retouching, artwork, and effects are usually applied to
your selected image(s). This is often included with print or digital packages
(below), but can also be ordered or upgraded separately.
PRINT PRODUCTS: AI pre-selects combinations of print types, treatments,
and mountings that work great together -- and packages them at discounted prices.
This simplifies your print ordering and saves you money compared with 'a la carte'
pricing, though we can also price things individually when necessary. Our main
prices are openly listed [HERE].
DIGITAL PRODUCTS: In addition to prints, we offer digital file versions you
can purchase at different resolution/price levels. For more info see our price
A LA CARTE: printing, digital output, and specialty finishing options can
be ordered individually in addition to, or instead of, package ordering.
Descriptions and pricing for A La Carte Image Finishing can be found
Maximize enjoyment of your finished images by preserving, displaying, and/or
sharing them in this phase! (Note: some of these features are included in the price
of Print or Digital Packages listed under Finishing. They are shown here for
clarity and because they also can be ordered or upgraded separately).
CUSTOM FRAMING: AI has arranged with a top notch local framing company to
produce hand-crafted display solutions for your AI prints. You can have
frames completely custom-designed to suit your images and decor by selecting from
among the hundreds of available styles. Or, choose one of the custom designs
Ardent Images has pre-designed with the framer to complement Jeff's signature
styles. Either way, you may be surprised to find that this personal service does
not cost substantially more than typical chain store custom framing. Also, if you
have us frame your AI wall print, the guarantee on the combined print and frame
is automatically extended to a lifetime limited guarantee. A list of
the price levels for frames available through Ardent Images is
