Minyahil K. Giorgis
I love photographing people and creative projects - Lets get the obvious out of the way, there done!
Why do you do it? I hear you ask...
Well good sir/madame thank for for taking an interest, I have always had a love for films/theatre and music from a very young age, and the older I got the more passionate I became about theatre, so I started a career in theatre as an actor and it wasn't till my second year of university that I had my very own camera to document the wonderful people I found myself surrounded by. It was this need to document my passion for theatre & design that started my love affair with photography. Photographing people made me realize just how much I enjoy meeting and working with new people so I took photography more seriously, then one thing lead to another and BOOM Giorgis Media is born.
That is a great story, but why should I have you take great looking pictures of my face/show/project?
I always like to meet or talk with my clients before the date of the shoot, that gives us both a chance to figure out what kind of an image we want to create. Its a collaborative effort so what you want to get out of the images needs to be established earlier on. I try to capture the personality of the individual whom I photograph while trying to give as many options for characters as possible when doing head shots, for theatre productions I make sure the lighting, costume, performance, design, atmosphere and essence of the shows are captured to give potential audience members a taste of what great shows you have waiting for them.
What about us musicians & non creative people?
Wow wow wow, just because I am passionate about my creative background doesn't mean I won't work with you, lets talk...
I don't see any of your pricing, do you negotiate?
I factor a lot of things in to my pricing, things like travel, camera gear, lighting gear, editing time, software, computer, tax etc... and the prices I quote based on the requirements of the job reflect the costs of my business, and I provide a professional service where you will receive high quality images very quickly and are invoiced efficiently.
