Photographers preserve subjects' precious memories, abolishing the need to hastily scoop reflections out of nearby fountains. Seek permanence with today's Groupon: for $99, you get either a one-hour on-location portrait session for up to five people or a one-hour on-location headshot session from Paul R. Giunta Photography, valid within 20 miles of Redondo Beach (a $375 value).
A connoisseur of spontaneity in both musical and familial form, Paul R. Giunta has arrested images for LA Weekly, Entertainment Weekly, and Prefix Mag. Paul's unobtrusive style, honed while maneuvering cameras around mics and clambering up the backs of security guards at Weezer and Vampire Weekend shows, relaxes clients for honest, candid shots. Up to five portrait subjects, which can include pets and finger puppets, convene on a location of their choice for an hour's worth of posed and photojournalistic shots that compose a portrait session. Afterward, Paul posts 20 edited and retouched images up to 1,200 pixels to a private, password-protected online gallery, hosted for three months to enable viewing and social-media sharing. Paul does not recommend printing the low-res files, but does offer à la carte prints for a separate fee or nicknaming privileges for a first-born child.
During one-hour headshot sessions, the soon-to-be-famous can display all aspects of their talent with multiple poses and outfits. After the shoot, Paul will edit, retouch, and provide high-resolution digital downloads for five images chosen from a private online gallery, suitable for printing and crafting giant valentines to talent agents.
