about frank linhares
Photography is my calling, my profession, and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday. I don’t photograph subjects. I capture the emotion and the moment for a lifetime. I wrestle with every image I shoot. I assume perfection is possible and I want to wring it out of every picture. If that’s all you ever know about me, it’s enough to say you know me very, very well.
I first picked up a camera when I was 15 years old, that was 22 years ago (you do the math). In that time I have probably taken over a million pictures, but who's counting? Many photographers do what they do because they have to. I have been blessed with the love of creating memories, not taking pictures. Photography isn't just a job, it's a vocation.
why choose frank linhares
Prior to your session we will sit down with you and try to figure out exactly what you want in your picture. What looks/mood are we trying to achieve? What background or location are you looking for? Who or what is the “must have” in the picture?
If what you are looking for is a headshot or portrait picture then we request that you fill out and bring with you the model release form. This form basically gives us permission to use the pictures we take for promotional purposes. You can access the model release here.
During the session we make you as comfortable as possible. We know that when you feel comfortable you look your best and that’s our goal. We’re not into counting pictures; we take pictures until we are certain we have all the great shots you were expecting.
Soon after the session, the proofs from the shoot are uploaded onto a secure gallery on our website. You will get a password that allows you to view your proofs. You select the pictures that you like best and click the submit button. Your selected proofs are then processed (touched up, cropped, colour corrected, etc.) and the finished product is either printed, placed on a DVD or reposted in the same gallery for you to download depending on the package or option you chose.
