I would love to decorate my studio with a great picture/portrait of my friends and myself. I m looking for a photographer experienced with working with groups and can create artistic pieces w/ creative composition rather than those Sears portrait type work.
Of course, if possible, I d love to keep the cost as low as possible. I'm clueless about how much these types sessions would cost, but is $200-300 a ridiculous range?
Portraits are a high end profession, especially in NYC, but student artists would probably love to make some money and practice at the same time. We recommend getting in touch with
the New York Academy of Art down here on Franklin Street, where student train specifically to paint from life.
The same approach would work at other local art schools: Parsons, Pratt, and Cooper Union. We recommend calling and putting up an advertisement on the student bulletin board.
[oops, we missed the "photography" part]
When you find someone, let us know and we'll post them here. (Thanks, Heidi!) MGR
