How long does a session generally last?
On average, our session length is dependent on the package that you've purchased. Usually, sessions last between 3-6 hours. However, we don't put a "hard limit" on the session length. We'll continue shooting until we're comfortable with the quality and quantity of the images that we've captured. You'll never feel rushed.
What makes the ABP Experience different?
Sessions generally include a good amount of pre-planning, storyboarding, and adventures in interesting/unknown locations. Your session will be treated as if it was a Hollywood film from conception to retouch. We use some of the best equipment we can get our hands on, from cameras and lenses to lighting and haze machines. We pride ourselves on high-production imagery with impact.
How long before I get my photographs and prints?
We deliver proofs of your images within 21 days, usually sooner. Then, we'll pick out our favorite images and send you a recommendation list. You make the final call on what will be retouched or you can allow us to choose for you. We're artists after all, we have an eye for these things!
Retouching generally takes 30-60 days, often sooner. We spend hours on a single photograph to get it perfect and we'll refuse to release an image if it's completely unusable. If you order prints, they will arrive at your doorstep within 5-10 days.
How far do you travel?
We are stationed in Westbury, NY. We will travel up to 50 miles for your session. If you are further away, we can still travel for an additional fee.
Are there any genres that you don't cover?
At the moment, we offer fine-art production sessions, high-end portraits, and select commercial work + commission.
Events, headshots, architecture + interiors, and simple branding sessions are available through our brand partners.
Can you offer me a custom package for my session?
Yes! Before any session, we take the effort to meet with our clients to discuss packages and plan extraordinary ideas together. If our recommended packages don't suit your needs, we'll come up with a custom one for you!
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check, PayPal, and all major credit cards. We also offer financing for invoices up to $10,000 through a third party.
We also accept payment via BTC/ETH.
I have an awesome location for my photo shoot! Will you work there for me?
As long as it isn't inside an active volcano, underwater, or on a trapeze line, yes.
Well, we can talk about the volcano. It would be pretty cool.
I need a session as soon as possible! Will you be available on short notice?
Generally, we are able to accept last minute bookings. However, in the event that we are unavailable, we will send a certified professional to your session.
Help! I booked a session two weeks ago and we're shooting tomorrow! I woke up with a breakout and I don't feel comfortable shooting. Should we reschedule?
No! our retouch system will eliminate any blemishes that may arise in your photographs. The possibilities are endless with our retouching. There's no need to reschedule, we promise.
Do you offer video/cinematography services?
We now offer The Cinema Experience, the perfect harmony between fine-art stills, cinematography, and custom scoring/composing and sound design.
