The best photographers rise to the top by practicing, while second-best photographers rise to the top by shooting blackmail photos of the first-best. Snap like a champ with today's Groupon for portrait sessions from Gregory Wutke Photography in Monterey. Choose between the following options:
- For $50, you get a high-school senior portrait session plus $100 toward prints (a $225 value).
- For $75, you get a family portrait session, plus $100 toward prints (a $350 value).
Seasoned camera wizard Gregg Wutke uses his flashy personality, background in art, and thorough methodology to summon seniors' smiles against the retina-soothing backdrops of historic downtown Monterey, the Old Monterey Gardens, the Carmel and Monterey coastline, or the shooting space in Wutke’s Monterey studio; family portrait sessions are held in any of the aforementioned locations or in customers' homes throughout the Monterey, Carmel, or Salinas areas. Wutke kicks things off with a friendly consultation to chart out photo shoots, dishing out tips on how to effectively use makeup, pick out the most flattering clothing choices, and determine which Mr. Ed impersonations complement or detract from natural facial features.
Have seniors don their class rings for a commemorative solo shoot that allows for multiple clothing changes or lasso up the entire clan for a family portrait session that gives clients the freedom to change up wardrobes, poses, and groupings during the shoot. Once on-location grin-off sessions conclude, Wutke spends time perfecting captured prints in his 22-step process, which includes retouching each image to ensure that all subjects look exactly as they had hoped, even if they hoped to look like vexed proboscis monkeys. This Groupon includes a $100 credit toward finished prints, with a typical set of 10 wallet prints running at $70 or a highly finished wall portrait (sizes vary) starting at $500.
