Depending on the service ordered, Ethan Quin Photography will always own the copyright to said images, but will grant access with a release that can be printed or provided digitally to your third party printing service.

  • Q: How many photos will I receive per session?

    A: I usually take between 80 to 120 photos per hour in a portrait session.  I then pick the best based on subject matter, composition, color, contrast, and clarity. A typical one hour session can usually provide 30-45 photos final photos. This is just an example average, as other types of services vary based on the setup and location.

  • Q: What should I prepare for before a photo session?

    A: Always make sure you have enough time. You want to feel comfortable and relaxed for the photoshoot, and running late can stress most people out. Always bring a backup outfit just in case. If a child is being photographed, I would recommend bringing two backup outfits, water, a snack or treat, and wipes to make sure their face is clean during the entire portrait shoot. Avoid snacks that can stain teeth, lips, or cheeks.

  • Q: What best describes your style?

    A: When photographing an event, I am always trying to find new ways of capturing the moment. I usually first try a photo-journalistic approach, then shoot portraiture, and then observe my surroundings to find a unique angle or viewpoint. I always hate to miss a moment or opportunity, so I am constantly at the ready in case something might happen.
