People Photography

Yes, I photograph people too!

Capturing the beauty and the sensitivity of a person’s gaze, memories to cherish and remember, always!

 

From portraits of yourself to family pictures, some memories are irreplaceable. A portrait made by a professionnel is always very much appreciated and is as much fun to give as it is to receive. Success guaranteed!

Photos of the group together as well as of each member individually, and parts of the group.

This is a popular option for family portraits, either in the studio or as a lifestyle shooting. All kinds of shots will be made, like group and individual pictures, as well as any combination of participants that will nicely depict the bonds and relationships between the various group members. We could call this a photoshoot with multiple subjects, even if it is in fact only one group.

Where is your studio located?

At your place, in your living room, your backyard, out of doors, in a park, downtown, at the lake… In short, anywhere you want, as long as the location is suitable for it.

I would like a photoshoot at home, but I don’t think my decor is suitable.

No problem! I will set up my mobile studio in your house, complete with lighting equipment, backdrop and accessories, if needed.

What is a lifestyle photoshoot?

It’s a type of photography made in a more natural setup, where the subjects are interacting with other subjects and/or their environment. Photos are usually made in ambiant light, if sufficient, or outside. Sometimes, the use of a little burst of flash as a fill-in light is helpful to control unwanted shadows, even in lifestyle photography.

Can the session be held in our backyard or in a park?

Yes, sure!  Usually, there is no problem to shoot outdoors or in a park.  However, a special permission might be required for a photoshoot in busy public locations, especially in town.  But if it can be obtained, why not?

Can my pet(s) take part in our family shooting?

Certainly!  It will make wonderful souvenirs and memories for you and your family!

How can I access my private web gallery?

Highlight the password you have been given, right-click and copy it to your clipboard.
Go to the proof galleries home page, using the following link: http://www.brunetphoto.ca/galerie_client/
Locate your gallery thumbnail and click. Double-click on the row of a dozen little stars to select them and right-click to paste your password. The number of stars should decrease to approximately 7 or 8. Hit the Enter key and you should now be in your gallery.

Why do the photos printed from my CD look different from what I see on my monitor?

Because, as explained in the Options tab of your selected package, the quality of prints may vary from one lab to another. The photographer cannot be held responsible for differences in colour, contrast or luminosity of any photo that the customer chooses to have printed from the CD.

Can I scan a print that I purchased from you in order to make an enlargement?

Definitely not. You have purchased a print, that’s all. There is no copyright or rights to print included in the price of a simple print. You cannot have it scanned by another photographer or printing lab either in order to make an enlargement. You need to purchase a CD to benefit from printing rights.

Can I share my proofs web gallery with my friends and family?

Certainly, as long as the copyrights are respected by all.

Can use pictures from my proofs gallery in my Facebook profile?

Yes, you may! You can download all the pictures you want in Facebook format by clicking on the little download button on each thumbnail of your gallery. However, please note that it is forbidden to modify any image or crop it in a way to remove the logo. All photos are resized and compressed for web use and will produce awful results if printed, which is not allowed anyway.

I know the photographer very well. Do I still have to pay a reservation deposit?

Absolutely, yes! Sadly, all people who have cancelled their appointment at the last minute or who have changed their minds without letting me know were people who knew me very well…
