WHAT IS 8x10? ...AND WHY WOULD I CARE?

When it comes to resolution and quality of image, 8x10 is impossible to beat. Not only has it remained nearly unchanged since photography's earliest years and continues to be THE choice for photographers who want to get the most detail out of every image.


An 8x10 negative is roughly 60 TIMES the size of a standard 35mm frame which means every image captures 60 times the information. You can FEEL the difference.

WAIT, HOW MANY PHOTOS?

Large format photography is a slow process. It's part of the reason I love it so much. Every image needs to be completely thought out prior to pressing the shutter and forces you to see the final image before setting up the camera.


The extra time required to set up a shot allows me to not only be 100% confident in the image I'm taking, but also gives me the opportunity to connect with the person sitting in front of the camera. For this reason, I calculate roughly 2 photos per hour for sessions.


Large format images are much more than just "photographs". They're timeless objects which will outlast any digital camera or file format.

HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?

After our session, I will develop the photographs and create high resolution scans which I will send to you roughly 1 week later.


High Resolution scans will be sized at roughly:

6400x8000px and delivered in TIFF format
