About Me

mastrio-cruise-family001

I’m the one in the Hawaiian shirt 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I prefer to use natural light, but as winter approaches and the cold creeps in, it becomes a challenge. Most photo shoots in the winter months will take place in the morning or early afternoon to try to capitalize on natural lighting. My toolbox includes Nikon Speedlights and White Lightning Strobes, so if the light isn’t cooperating, I got you covered!

Session Fees:

starting at $100/hr. in the greater Springfield, MA area
Outside Springfield area, call me and we can discuss!

Session fees are due the day I come to take pictures. All other fees are 1/2 down with the order and 1/2 due upon delivery. Session fees cover my time spent with you and my creativity as a photographer (Nikon Capture NX, Lightroom, Photoshop, Portrait Professional, and other image processing tools).

The cost of prints are NOT included in the session fees.
