The Martin Dupuis Photography Experience
Congratulations, after a little bit of internal debating you have decided to do something for you and Unleash Your Inner Diva! From Initial Contact to Image Delivery, my goal is to provide you with a photography experience unlike any other.
Whether you want a traditional boudoir session, a sexy off the wall glamour session or an outside the box fitness session to show off your gains and accomplishments all sessions begin with our Initial Contact. You can drop by the studio or we can meet somewhere for a chat and a coffee.
Although I prefer to meet all my Divas in person as in my experience, it has dramatically helped increase your confidence and comfort during the session, I realize that with today’s busy schedules that isn’t always possible. In those cases your consultation can be by telephone.
Our initial meeting will allow us to get to know each other as well as determine exactly what you are looking to get out of your session. Getting to know you allows me to customize the session to your personality.
Preparing for your Session
As part of your pre-session consultation you will receive various emails with details on how to prepare for your session, outfit ideas as well as what not to do before your photoshoot.
I will also send you a link to a gallery filled with a variety of images to help give ideas as to what style of pictures you are looking to do. Don’t forget to check out my Photoshoot Preperation Blog Post for additional tips and tricks to get the most out of your photography experience.
Professional Hair & Makeup Application
All of my packaged sessions include professional makeup application. Professional makeup is not a must for “A la Carte” sessions but I strongly recommend you include professional makeup as part of the experience.
Even though some people are great at applying their own make-up, the camera sees things differently than your mirror, and a professional make-up artist will know how to apply your make-up to make it work best with your specific look and session theme.
Taryn Miller is my primary makeup artist. With 10+ years as a professional makeup artist, Taryn knows exactly how to create customized looks for all photography styles. My clients absolutely adore her and often book her again for other special occasions.
Unleashing the Diva!!!
Our session will begin by a quick walk through the studio and changing area were we will review your outfits and formulate a plan and order for your session.
Whenever possible and when shooting in studio I shoot tethered to a computer so that we can view and discuss your images as they come up. It’s the great way to see firsthand what is and isn’t working. Photography is a very individual process. Just because a specific pose or look works for one person does not mean it will work for you, and that’s ok.
Your proofs are usually ready within 72 hrs. Depending on the time of year and my
existing work load it may take as many as 5 days. Your proof gallery will be sent to you via email and contain the following:
- Link to your images.
- Secure Password.
- Instruction on selecting your favorite images for full post processing.
- A list of images that I particularly like and recommend.
Let’s be honest, Photoshop is part of the process in creating spectacular images. Every magazine cover undergoes extensive post processing. My philosophy when editing images is the following:
“I will make you look like you on your best day!”
In other words, do not worry about skin blemishes, stretch marks, surgery scars, wrinkles, cellulite or any other skin imperfections. If you need a tuck here or there, not a problem.
I will make you look your very best all the while making sure it still looks like you.
It has been said many times over that the eyes are the window to the soul, my edits focus extensively on making your eyes colourful and sharp.
Timeline for delivery of final images is usually around 14-21 days.
Your digital images on delivered on DVD in a beautiful Midnight Black sleeve for “A la Carte” order or classy Himalayan Night black case for “Package Orders”. Both products are handmade by Loktah.com.
