Alec Himwich Photography

Orange

I specialize in head shots (LinkedIn, social media and chiaroscuro), product photography and events. My head shots and product photography are typically done in my studio at 807 East Main Street, Durham, NC 27705. My event photography focuses on parties, conferences and dance events.

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

In making head shots, the important thing is to establish sense of trust and understanding of the essentials of a good head shot.

With product photography, my concern is representing the object I am photographing as accurately as possible. I shoot tethered so it is possible to evaluate the photos as they are made. I prefer to work with the object owner to be sure that the lighting (reflections and shadows) are managed in an optimal manner.

At events, I like to capture individual and group photos as well as moments that tell a story about the event. At dance performances, I seek to capture the climatic moments the event.

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

For head shot clients, I need to know the purpose of the head shot, whether a make up artist is needed (I can arrange that) and whether the photo is to be taken in the studio or on location.

For product photography, I need to know if the client can come to my studio or whether I need to travel the client's location. I also need to know the number and size of objects to be photographed.

For event photography, I need to know where the event will be, how long it will last and what products are to be delivered.

What do you love most about your job?

In doing head shots, I love the rich, collaborative experience of working with someone to create their public face.

In doing product photography, I enjoy the challenge of getting the lighting just right to represent the object without visual distractions.

In doing event photography, I enjoy interacting with the event attendees to capture representative photos. In the case of dance performances, I aim to freeze action and capture the decisive moment in the dance.

What inspired you to start your own business?

In 2000, I became interested in photography and have been avidly photographing since then. In 2016, I had time and opportunity to convert my love of photography into a business.

Why should our clients choose you?

I shoot with the the latest mirrorless cameras (that can capture photos soundless at events) and I have the capability of shooting with continuous lights or strobes in the studio or on location.

As part of my service, I deliver both RAW photos (for the client's archival use) and lightly edited JPGs. I am always willing to do additional editing when required for an agreed upon price.

My interest in working with clients is to capture photos that address the client's stated requirements. My highest concern is with the client's satisfa ction with my work. Although I quote a price for each job which I stick to, I do not stint on effort and time spent and I stick to my original quote.
