Every year the University of California graduates thousands of seniors and those wanting more than the “hand shake with diploma in hand” photo, come to Ray Johnston Designer Photography for a custom Senior Portrait.  Take advantage of the family being together in town for the Graduation Ceremony, and have a family portrait created.  Many college seniors have themselves photographed in a formal cap and gown attire to remember the special day.  Also during this photo session, Ray suggests that Graduates update their business head shot for job resumes and Linkedin.

As an artist (other than a photographer) you are required to have pictures of your art in order to submit them digitally for exhibitions, presentations, reproduction printing, and for promotional purposes, but very often you may experience some serious difficulties when it comes to the “translation” of what your art originally represents in a photograph.

Ray Johnston Photography has a vast experience in photographing art.  We will be happy to help you with your paintings, drawings or crafts of various sizes, textures and dimensions.  Editing, cropping, color matching and sizing will get your images ready for print or uploading onto the internet.  A good photograph of your art may mean the difference between getting into an gallery, exhibition or making that important sale.  This is why it is worth it to hire a professional to get this aspect of your art presentation done the right way.


And by the way, if you still don’t have your professional head shot image, we can help you with that!
