Holiday Portrait Special
Families are seldom all gathered together except during the holiday season. Having a professional photographer come to the gathering, in your home or at the beach, park or even at a party location is a great way to share the memories and make them last.
From November 5, 2016 to December 31, 2016 all portrait sittings and subsequent orders to Photography By Gregory Coraggio will be discounted 10% for the holiday season. Just mention the code HOLIDAY10 when booking the sitting or making your order.
This includes the location shoot fee or studio shoot fee along with all orders made by December 31, 2016. Book early to take advantage of this offer.
On Monday, October 31st (Halloween) from 3:00 pm until 9:00 pm I will be taking free portraits of all trick or treaters who come to my studio, 402 Carlisa Drive, Brick. Candy treats will be given to all trick or treaters and (4x6) portraits will be given to all (for children under 10 - portraits will be given to parents or older siblings). Show off your costume and receive a keepsake to remember for years to come.
There is no charge for anything as I try to offer this service every Halloween. So please come by on Halloween between 3 pm and 9 pm and enjoy, I hope to see you then.
Going to a costume party? Stop by before 9 p.m. and have a free portrait taken.
Some portraits of Trick or Treaters from past Halloweens
Earlier this month I had the privilege of video recording the wedding of a terrific couple. The wedding was a lot of fun, great food, awesome musicians and the Bridal couple could not have been nicer. All in all a great celebration.
Location family portraits can be a much more personal and practical portrait session, especially in the summer when the kids are out of school and families are planning get together's and outings during the pleasant weather.
Having a photographer meet you at the beach, park or even at your home is not only convenient but can offer you backgrounds no studio can create.
With this in mind Photography By Gregory Coraggio studio is offering a 50% discount on all location Portrait shoot fees until August 1st. So call me at 732-477-2660 to set up a beautiful location family portrait session.
A week ago I had the privilege of covering the wedding of a terrific couple. The wedding was a lot of fun and the Bridal couple could not have been nicer. Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate as we all would have liked but we were able to get a few quick formal photos outside before the rain came, I also set up a portable studio inside the catering hall so we were able to take additional portraits during the reception. All in all a great celebration.
Below is a shortened sample of the wedding video and a few photos.
I am reposting this because I believe this program (app) is so very helpful for every photographer. Originally posted 1/12/14.
Every photograph, even well exposed and well framed photos, can be improved with a basic understanding of Photoshop. Even more incredible is the ability to correct a poorly exposed or poorly framed photo and make it appealing.
Knowing what can be accomplished with this tool is important for all photographers, amateur and professional. For instance basic exposure correction and cropping, minimizing blemishes in a portrait, adding or removing a subject (person or object), changing a color photo to black and white or resizing a photo (can be necessary for digital transfer or storage). Photo restoration is also a good reason to get familiar with Photoshop.
For those not familiar with everything this program can do don't be intimidated, you don't need to know every feature for it to be useful. Basic correction and cropping are a starting point. Many schools have Photoshop classes that are not very expensive.
For website designing Photoshop is invaluable, for one thing a jpeg file can be converted to a png or gif file and the gif can be animated. The importance of converting to these types of files for website design is size, a png or gif file can be smaller than a jpeg and not loose quality. Smaller image size allows the site to open faster. There are many other advantages for web designers like slicing, but I want to focus on photographers and any photographer that has to shoot for a web client may need to use these other file types.

In home family portraits can be a much more personal and practical portrait session, especially when the weather isn't ideal.
Having a photographer come to your home is not only convenient but reflects your personal lifestyle like no studio portrait can. After all you have created a living space that reflects your comfort and lifestyle at the time the portrait is taken.
As time goes by your family changes and so does your home, perhaps slightly or even major changes happen, looking at a portrait should bring back life memories of a time you cherish. So call me at 732-477-2660 to set up a beautiful in home family portrait session.
