We have photographed hundreds of High School Seniors from all over Central New York.
We know how important these portraits are so we take our time and do them right. Most importantly we make sure our seniors are comfortable and relaxed during their sessions. No rushed sessions, no lines or waiting rooms and no pushy salesmen. Included in all photo sessions is an indoor and an outdoor session. All photos you select as your favorites are professionally edited and retouched.
The days of those high priced, large commercial portrait studios with huge overhead are over. The new smaller and super efficient studio has arrived. Simple to understand, unsurpassed quality, no hidden costs and much less expensive. The future of portrait photography is here.
Finally, this is how all portrait studios should be!
Here is an example of one of our newest Art prints styles. The Hand Drawn effect gives your portrait a realistic hand drawn look that is the best photo based drawing simulation I have ever seen. The detail is wonderful and would be a great addition to any wall space.
Here is another example of the Hand Drawn style print.
Another nice example of one of our new products. This is the Grunge Art print and it too has beautiful detail. Very colorful and stunning effects. Bring some shades, a funky hat or whatever you have and lets have some fun creating an awesome image.
Here is a second example of the one of our new Grunge Style prints.
We operate out of our home studio in a very relaxed atmosphere. There are no lines or rushed sessions. All of our senior sessions begin with our indoor studio photo session and conclude with a short outdoor visit for a few poses in a natural environment. You will be photographed by a full-time, professional photographer and given the individual attention and respect you deserve as a customer and friend of DT Studios.
We use the best equipment in the industry. No expense has been spared with our cameras, lenses and lighting equipment. Our customers deserve the highest quality we can possibly provide.
All customer selected images undergo a detailed editing process. First, the image is cropped (for the best composition) and colors enhanced. Next, we remove all blemishes, stray hair and other undesirables (fuzz balls, pet hair etc.). We then gently soften and enhance the skin tones using special editing techniques that will present you to your family and friends in the best possible way. Please see our retouching link at the top of the page.
We use one of the best, high quality portrait processing labs in the Northeast USA to print your portraits.
Some of our customers have requested the option of framing, albums or folios. If you would like your prints framed or presented in a special way, we now have a nice selection of options available to you.
Because of our low overhead we are able to offer very reasonable prices for our customers. We guarantee you will not find this level of quality photography at a better price anywhere.
We are determined to capture an image of you. Your eyes, your face, your personality. We want a portrait of you, as you are at this special time of your life. We use simple, un distracting backgrounds which are chosen to bring out your skin tones and compliment your clothing. Any props will be used sparingly, in a way that will not draw attention away from the subject.
As a client and friend of DT Studios, our promise to you is this; “We will do everything within our power to make certain you are ultimately 110% satisfied with your portraits and your entire experience with DT Studios Photography.” If you’re not satisfied, we’re not satisfied.
We don’t use the “hard sell” approach like other studios. No paying for products you don’t want or need. You get exactly what you want, nothing more and nothing less.
Here is a short informational PDF file that can help you understand the process of finding a photographer for your senior.
A: Our smallest package (which includes prints) would cost around $115 (after tax & shipping). That price includes: your sitting fee (both in our studio and outdoors behind the studio), retouching your image(s), your yearbook portrait sent to your school for you (all of which many photographers will find a way to charge extra for) and a nice collection of prints. The average Senior portrait order usually ranges from $300 to $400 but can be much more or much less if you so choose. See our Prices & Packages page. For each outfit you are photographed in, you can expect around 100 photos to choose from. I have been told many times that our customers most difficult task (throughout this process) is choosing their favorite among the dozens you will want.
A: DT Studios is run out of my home, located within the quiet village of North Syracuse. It is an extremely relaxed, comfortable and private atmosphere, away from people, traffic and parking hassles. Upon your arrival, we first have a quick sit-down to discuss your expectations and plan out the sitting. Then we get started with your session which includes a series of different settings, positions and angles, each outfit you have will take about 15-20 minutes to complete. At the end of your indoor session we’ll go outdoors to get a few shots in a more natural environment. Once we have finished your session, you can expect to see your portrait proofs within an hour or so. The link will be e-mailed to you so you can view and select the photos online in the privacy of your home.
A: Absolutely not, but don’t take my word for it, see for yourself. Take a look at the portraits in our gallery, you can expect the same or even better results. We do our best to create a very “relaxed” atmosphere which helps us capture the real you. That’s one of the main factors in good portraiture and it makes a big difference in your final portraits. We are full time professional photographers with years of experience photographing people. We do not schedule more than 2 sessions per day and we never take a photo session lightly.
1.) Call (315) 452-1456 to schedule a date and time for your portrait session.
2.) Show up at our studio with the clothes (and props if desired) you would like to be photographed in, and a $100 pre-payment toward your photo session & subsequent print order (cash, check or money orders preferred, but credit cards can be accepted).
3.) Say Cheese, please allow approx. 15-20 minutes per outfit.
4.) Pick your favorites. Within an hour or so, your portraits will be available for viewing online.
5.) Place your order when you are ready: Call or e-mail us with your portrait selections. Once your order has been placed, your photos will be edited, processed and printed. Once we receive the final payment for the balance, we ship them directly to you ASAP (usually within 1 week).
