"I can give you a Spielberg quality production on a Happy Meal budget so you have money left over to afford a steak" ~ Johnathan
I get it. You want a great photo of yourself or have a business you want to enhance. Maybe your an actor or a model and so, having a portfolio that is current and really shows you the way you need to be seen can come at a premium. Time to do a refresh on your website or update your brochures and so, what do you do when people are charging hundreds of dollars for such services?
As I said, I get it. There are so many great deals out there, but even so, $2 here, $5 there, cable bill, internet, cell phone, utilities, rent, car payments, dining, spending money, coffee every morning and... It just adds up. But, consider this... That $3-4 cup of coffee, every day for a month and yeah, it was delicious, but... $120 later and all you have are empty cups. Take a photo (or two or three) with me and you're walking away with a professional shot that you'll be using for the next 1, 3 even 5 years (or more) on your social media, website and so on that really shows the best of you. What is that truly worth? Well, I won't charge that price but know, what I do charge and what you get, is truly of value.
So, take a look at some of the packages I offer below and see if any of them suit your particular needs. If not, if you need something more customized or tailored to an event or something else that you envision, let me know. I'd be happy to make sure that you get the shot you are looking for and to your satisfaction. And I'll even do one more. Unlike many in my profession who are often, too worried or intimidated by other photographers in the field, if I can't give you what you want or are looking for, I will give you the contact of someone I know who specializes in exactly that as I want you to be satisfied, not disappointed, with your photos and if so, then you'll go on to recommend me to others as a result. AND AGAIN, I WORK WITH EVERYONE'S BUDGET.
Take a look below, hopefully, find what you are looking for and if not, contact me either way... I'll try to make something work tailored to what you need and on your budget so, don't be embarrassed or afraid to ask. Oh, and if you have something in trade or can barter for something I need (my car always needs an oil change for instance), I am open to trade as long as my own regular bills are paid.
I look forward to hearing from you, but I really look forward to shooting with you even more. See you soon... Johnathan
PREMIUM HEADSHOT PACKAGE - $100.00
Actor, model, musician, artist, athlete? Whatever the case may be, some people need a good headshot in relation to their profession or lifestyle. Let me be the one who takes that shot of you.
Headshots and capturing people as they really look is what I excel at. And "as they really look" means, not how they see themselves in their mind, only to snap a photo and then not looking anything like.
I've been shooting people's photos for years, professionally and personally, and what really amazes me is that some 3, 5 or even 10 years later, I'll see a photo I took of them, still being used on their social media or similar. I'm always amazed, but, it says something.
My rates are super reasonable so that anyone can afford them.

I love shooting for clients and in helping them to promote their business. It's always truly an honor to see the same photos I take, some 5, 7, even 10 years out and because they often say, "You took the best shots of me ever!" So let's make you one of those clients too!
YOGA STUDIOS / WELLNESS SPAS / ALTERNATIVE HEALTH PACKAGE - $100-???
You have a beautiful studio or location where everyone always tells you how gorgeous the place is and so on. It's also full of beautiful people, but it's unfortunate that most of the shots taken of them are by way of a selfie. Well, it's about time we do something about that.
Or maybe you've designed a new place and it simply needs to be showcased now. Let me use my wide-angle lens to get the most amazing capture of your space, then narrow it down to my portrait lens for higher detail, closer up images and with that sublime blurred background (known as bokeh) to make the subject in the foreground, POP!
Capture the poses you've been working on to perfect and/or even with some product placement if it's something you sell, market or advertises the same at your business or on the side. Let's work it all into the shot and let's see what meaningful art we can create together!
And whatever you do or decide... Just remember to breathe!
BOUDOIR AND ALL THINGS BEAUTIFUL - $150.00-$600.00
This package is for those who want to look like they feel, or better still, look the way the want to feel and be able to feel that way while looking themselves as shot that way. Maybe you've worked hard to achieve the body you've always wanted and so, it's time for that photo shoot that you've always wanted and deserve and now the time is right for you to do just that. That's what I do when I shoot boudoir, sensual, nude, fetish and erotica.
It's not my particular or preferred style of shooting. That is, I did it for many years, when there was a demand as such, but in general, it's not something I readily advertise or push and yet, I am more than capable of shooting that way and have done some amazing work with clients as a result. So, twist my arm if you must, but, the client's needs come first and I know how to capture what they (you) are looking for so, hire me and have me help you to accomplish what you want to capture.
The above pricing is based on the difference of whether we are shooting in your home, apartment, preferred location or similar or using a professional studio which is set up specifically to shoot this genre and style of shooting (a place with a large bed, couch, mirrors and props (pillows, sheets, lamps, etc.) that go with that style of shot. The higher-priced amount is due to the rental of the space (https://www.jerseyshorewhitebox.com/rentals) which is not far from Red Bank and much larger than the space I use to shoot for fashion.
PRODUCT BRANDING AND CONCEPTUAL PHOTOSHOP - $150-???
Do you have a product you need to highlight for your latest print ad, webpage or similar? Are you stuck without a logo, design, branding, tagline and so you don't even know where to begin in terms of sketching out what it is your company or product does as a result?
I've shot many products over the years, as well as pitching product ideas to clients who are looking for a new concept or who need a refresh on something outdated. I try to keep the client happy by not only coming up with something fresh but also by including them in the creative process so that the flow and completion come that much quicker.
I will either take an existing product and shoot it in the appropriate location and setting to which it is used or simulate an environment the same through photoshop. This also includes creating mock-up designs of packaging and other variables, depending on what the product is.
