Venture - style and justification.

I've been asked by someone I know if it's possible to produce some 'Venture' style studio images for them after they visited Venture and were asked for almost £1000 for a few of the photos they'd had taken.

How can they justify charging that? I know they're a business with the usual overheads and costs and are there to make a profit but at what point can they say they NEED to charge so much to cover costs?

Anyway, my question is this....is there a specific technique to get that style of image? Any particular process either at the time of shooting (settings etc) or post production with Lightroom and Photoshop? (I ask as they are what I use).

I've booked the studio to have a play about and try but advice and suggestions to prepare would be helpful!

Cheers guys n gals in advance.

There you go.

I think they can charge it because it's aspirational. If they can do it & people will pay, well good luck to them.

Also found a tutorial on youtube for you. Give your portraits a modern look with Photoshop - YouTube

True. They started the trend but it's obviously still popular. Thanks for the link Whipspeed, that's been helpful, cheers. Hopefully,they'll be happy with what I can produce.

Get a trial of portrait professional as well, it makes getting that smooth skin & bright eyes & teeth rather simple as well.

Re: Venture - style and justification.

I've posted a couple of photos from this shoot in 'people photography'. Spoke to the couple today and they seemed extremely happy with the images I did for them.
