Carrying somebody’s photo in your wallet typically indicates either affection for a loved one or a complete failure to keep loved ones out of your wallet. Pick up some new pictures for your money purse with today’s Groupon: for $95, you get a one-hour in-studio portrait session and prints from Colorband PhotoArtisans (a $377 value). Customers may opt for an outdoor shoot at a local park for an additional $25 fee, or propose an off-site location within 15 miles of the studio (fee assessed based on location).
Colorband PhotoArtisans are Roy Groat Jr. and Jamie Chen, whose photographing abilities transform beautiful scenery into beautifully crafted images. Before on-camera debuts, models have the option to meet with the photographers and discuss the shoot. During the portrait session, the picture makers will make pictures while subjects pose through two outfit swaps and two background changes (a $150 value). Emphasis is placed on creating great images in the studio with minimal digital darkroom enhancement. However, digital manipulations can be added upon request, from adding texture overlays or halos to simply shuffling faces around to confuse future generations.
Prints are carefully forged from a single pose, and once the session concludes, clients will receive five digital negatives (a $100 value), along with one 11"x14" gift print (a $50 value), one 8"x10" gift print (a $21 value), two 5"x7" gift prints (a $16 value), two 4"x6" prints (a $16 value), and three sets of wallet prints (12 total, a $24 value). Today’s Groupon also offers the option to purchase additional poses, prints, or negatives at a 25% discount.
