Beauty Shots is a style of photography that is mainly catered for women.
While taking photos for you, I bring out emotion and make you comfortable with who you are.
I convert vulnerability into empowerment.
In my beauty shots, I don’t just deliver photos, but I also deliver confidence in yourself.
When it comes to beauty shots, the photographic style is mainly using the Artistic Photography Style
. Generally in these shots I give much more advice and hints than I do in other photography sessions. This is done in the sense that I will always try to ensure that a movement to naturally bring out a particular photo position (or pose) has been done correctly and the person I’m taking the photos of is relaxed and if I don’t feel that you’re relaxed or that your not having fun, I won’t take a photo.
My knowledge on how to beautifully frame a woman in the shot and bring out her features, what type of lighting to use, or what positions/movements to do take/do and photography lens to use to appear slimmer (without any photo editing! natural is always better) or how to get her curves enhanced would be told to my client at the right moment.
More importantly, I will always evoke emotion from you and help bring out your inner Venus and give good energy (or vibes) to produce unique photos and make you look authentic.
In beauty shots, I also use some techniques, principles and ideas I got from other areas of photography I know. For example, during Beauty Shots I use ideas & techniques from my boudoir
knowledge and techniques, to help make you feel more comfortable with yourself the environment and be relaxed.
Many times, when AldoPics female clients see their BeautyShot photos taken for them, they tell Aldo that can’t believe it is them as they look so good in the photos and thought it was not possible!
knows, understands and feels that in beauty shots, beauty does not only come from physical beauty, but mainly from the energy (vibes) that you give during the photo shoot and fun you are having. During my Beauty Shot photo shoots (and also in Boudoir
), I create a relaxed, fun and comfortable environment.
The aim of AldoPics
is never to only sell you good photos, but to give you the great experience that you won’t get from somehwere else and so that in the photos, you would be natural, comfortable and look fabulous.
If desired and asked for, certain elements or boudoir photography can be includedon cost, see below
In general, I only slightly retouch the photos as I would like to create a photo as close to the real you as possible. Certain small blemishes like wrinkles, sun burns (or untanned parts like shoulder like bikini lines) are generally done no problem.(Skin fine shadows are generally handled before a photo is taken, with good lighting)
Advanced or Commercial Retouching can be done if asked for. Such retouching always takes time and incurs an extra cost too (charged by the hour).
This extra service is normally asked for when a photo taken will be used in a magazine or in a high-quality advert/poster.
Occasionally unless a specific artistic edit is specifically asked for, if I think of a nice edit while processing your chosen photos that would look very good in the photo, I will do it and give you the edited an original photo. Examples of these are the beauty shot photos that have petals in the photo (which can be seen in my portfolio on the right).
The following rates are charged for Beauty Shots.
Different looks are generally requested for studio Beauty Shot photography. This is when you would like to change clothing during the session (as in changing much more than wearing or removing a prop) or having some photos taken in high-key mode or low-key mode as changing the studio to provide such a photo style would require lighting and background changes which take time.
|By charge is for the time taken.||Minimum €30 and for first hour. Hours after are at €15/hr|
|Advanced or Commercial Retouching||€5/Photo|
Per hour of photography taken, up to 12 photos can be chosen. Additional photos can be requested but will be at at extra cost of €2.50 per extra photo after the first 12 are selected.
Book a Business Headshots
or an Actor Headshots
service with the Beauty Shots service for only an extra €10
Book the Boudoir
service for a €50% price reduction or ask for Beauty Shots
with with certain Boudoir photography elements and will then the charge the €15 per extra hour beauty shot time (when service is negotiated, I would let you know if the service will remain a Beauty Shot Service or it becomes a boudoir service and then would be under the Boudoir service pricing).
