Photographs catch indelible memories, just as white dress shirts invariably catch indelible sauce stains. Imprint a moment in time with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a photo session and prints (a $305 value) from Elaine Halpert Photography.
An exhibiting fine-art photographer and longtime photography instructor, Elaine Halpert captures her subjects' likenesses using the refined eye of an artist augmented by experience and precise technical skills. Adept at multiple styles of portraiture including individuals, couples, infants, and groups, Halpert can accommodate up to five people for a one-hour in-studio or on-location shoot at your home, outdoors, or in a jumbo-size, live-in terrarium (a $200 value). Halpert maintains a flexible approach, striving to customize each session so that subjects' personalities shine through. Once prints are ready, you can choose one 8"x10" (a $25 value) and two 5"x7"s (a $30 value), and you'll also get a CD with a gallery of images ready for Internet sharing (a $50 value). Order additional prints from Halpert or online from a web gallery of edited and lightly enhanced colour, black-and-white, sepia, and barely visible white-on-white images.
Elaine Halpert Photography
After Elaine Halpert graduated from Ryerson University, she worked as an exhibiting fine-art photographer and taught photography classes. With her more than a decade of accrued experience, she refocused her efforts to build her own photography business, drawing upon the many lessons she learned, including the idea that two cameras are better than one. She and a sidekick attend all special-event shoots, capturing as many memories as possible during celebrations ranging from bar mitzvahs to weddings.
Her work emphasizes normal exposure and natural light, ensuring pictures suffused with authentic hues and clear focus. On occasion, she saturates colours by drawing out the brightness of a blue balloon or the stately beiges of a municipal bus shelter. Elaine also varies her lenses to achieve portraits with soft backgrounds and group shots with crisp details.
