Scenic portraiture hidden within an adventure
What sets Artifex Imaging apart?
I have a paid assistant with me for all sessions to help make the most of your time by improving shoot efficiency and assisting you with any of your needs. Premium sessions are also accompanied by a makeup artist and hair stylist to help you look your very best.
Third party printing rights
Purchasing prints through me is optional - not required. The release you sign prior to your session has a section that gives you written permission to print your photos through a third party. Prints can be purchased directly through your proofing site if you so choose to purchase directly through me.
All photos fully edited and in full resolution
I shoot in multi-shot mode which means I take several shots of the same pose and angle to guarantee that I get the best shot of every pose to give to you. I edit all of the images so that they are of the absolute best quality which will be made available for download in full resolution. You will get all of your photos that you carefully invested time and money in - not just a predetermined amount of photos selected for you.
Free access to future edits from your session
I occasionally go back to prior sessions whenever I come upon a new technique or burst of inspiration that I find fitting for that session. Any artistic edits done using images from your session will be provided to you in a full resolution digital file without any additional cost to you.

Adventure portrait consist of at least an hour of shooting, possibly more, and a varied amount of walking and/or hiking to get to the most scenic locations in nature. Be prepared with anything you might need for a hike such as a backpack with a packed lunch, snacks, water, sunblock, etc. It is best to keep your schedule clear to give enough time to drive to and from the location, explore the area during the shoot, and continue exploring on your own and make a day of it afterward if desired. Clients are responsible for their own transportation to and from the location, parking or entry fees, etc. The entry of the park will be the meeting area for Hart Park, Wind Wolves Preserves, and Sequoia National Park. A meeting area will be established ahead of time for Cambria sessions.
