Photo Sessions with Carol Weiler
Wednesday, January 11, 2017, choose your 30 minutes between 3-6pm
The Paramount Visual Art Studios are excited to offer artists the opportunity to have their work professionally photographed at a very reasonable rate! For $50.00 you will have 30 minutes with local photographer Carol Weiler, who will take high-quality images of your work, which can be used for cataloging, submission of grants, or for your personal use. You are welcome to bring several pieces (depending on the medium and your needs, Carol is typically able to photograph 4 to 6 pieces in one 30 minute session) and you will walk away with a disc of your images in both JPEG and RAW formats.
