Welcome to JP Myskowski Photography
Jan produces high quality portraits and headshots for personal, corporate and editorial clients.
Portraits are produced using a combination of studio strobe and natural light and can be shot either in studio or on location.
Most work is produced digitally, but for special projects where a unique look is desired, portraits can be made on film using medium format (Hasselblad).
Whether images are captured digitally or on film, all images are professionally retouched by Jan using Capture One, Photoshop and selected other applications.
All final images can be delivered as electronic files properly sized and formatted for the intended application, whether that be web display or print production.
All portraits can be delivered as fine art prints. For prints up to 22 inches in diameter, Jan produces them himself using high grade papers and state of the art ink-jet print processes. For prints larger than 22 inches, Jan produces digital files tested on small format prints, which are then outsourced to a printing vendor with custom instructions designed to yield the same results obtained during file processing and testing.
Jan developed most of his photography and editing skills working under the direct mentorship of New York City and Zurich-based photographer Sally Montana. He gained additional expertise in print production working with Ansel Adams protégé Douglas Dubler.
Jan provides detailed project proposals for acceptance prior to commencement of work, but in general pricing is based on the following assumptions:
- Individual portraits delivered as digital files only are usually $300 for the first image and $100 for each additional image resulting from the same shoot;
- For group portraits and corporate projects in which multiple members of a team will be photographed, and in which images will be delivered as digital files only, the project is generally based on a rate of $100 to $150 per individual featured in the project, depending on factors such as location and complexity of the shooting conditions and production expectations;
- Prints are priced separately after a discussion of paper choice, size and other production factors.
