Below are various categorical links to some of our work. Please feel free to click on these links and browse through our hospitality and lifestyle work at your convenience. If you would like to request a specific sample of work, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
We use a full array of state-of-the-art photography and cinematography equipment to capture all the digital media required for your project.
Our creative vision and direction is available to your project and we will ensure that your project is given the very best of our talents.
Your project is of utmost importance; let’s make sure we get your digital assets produced and delivered on schedule.
To reduce the risk of corruption or loss of your data, we employ multiple hi-tech data redundancy storage and backup devices. Your data is highly protected within our systems.
Batch editing is the most basic of our retouching procedures and includes general corrections for color, levels, exposure, sharpness, clarity and saturation en masse. When the set is produced and lit well, most culinary (food & drink) images as well as quick handheld B-Roll images can be batch edited to return very useable results without advanced retouching or without much hand-retouching.
If you purchase the Full Shoot RAW Buyout, all images taken at the shoot will be included for you after they have been batch edited.
The sample images you will see in this gallery represent batch retouching from our work on a produced set.
Please note, however, that for certain images such as interior/exterior shots, composites (sky replacement, cloning, object replacement), background removal or portraits that might require more extensive and advanced post-processing, we recommend getting these ‘select’ images hand-retouched by us.
Please see below for examples of the hand-retouching process as you decide which ‘selects’ you would like to submit through this process:
(examples of image retouching by hand)
These would be images that you would select individually to be retouched. For each image, you may leave the editing to our discretion or you can provide us with specific correction notes if there are special requests. We will do our best to accommodate all retouching requests when possible.
The hand-retouching process will enhance interior/exterior images because we will be able to selectively combine multiple exposures of the interior/exterior shots to composite them into a final image that is naturally impossible to be captured straight out of the camera; the shadows will be lightened, the highlights/blown-out areas will be darkened and individual elements in the image will be adjusted to stand out, resulting in a vivid and compelling but still natural image. Whenever possible, we will also remove imperfections and certain items in the scene that are unwanted.
For portraits, we will hand-retouch them by removing blemishes and flyaways, smoothing skin discoloration and clothing wrinkles, adjusting shape/scale/sizing and further adjusting color, levels, brightness, sharpness and saturation in selective areas.
