School is starting across the Denver Metro!

Senior yearbook photo deadlines are different with each high school. And each school has different requirements for cropping, sizing and backgrounds. We are offering a fast and efficient photo shoot at our outdoor portrait studio so that you can be photographed and choose your favorite pose for us to naturally retouch and deliver to the school. Photo shoot includes professionally printed photographs for you too!

We are a professional boutique studio.

Dan Bettinger asks questions, guides his subjects into poses, pays attention to details and brings out the best in his clients. His experience behind the camera cannot be replaced by an iphone. He is more then the equipment that he shoots with.

Regis Jesuit Background

All students from both the Regis Jesuit Girls & Boys divisions, will be photographed on a solid gray background this year. Options to be photographed include at our studio over the summer plus we will be setup at RJHS this fall. The dates are yet to be determined.

If you choose to be photographed at our studio this summer, you’ll have more to choose from and more time with the photographer. Plus the Standard session includes some outdoor too.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone!

Tip Tuesday "Stripes"

Stripes are one thing a professional photographer usually does not like to see their subject wearing. And later, the subject usually regrets it too. Why? Because horizontal stripes can make a person look wider or more broad. And a bold strip no matter what, always becomes too distracting and takes the attention away from the person. Notice the stripe this young man is wearing. It is horizontal, but it’s small stripes, tone on tone and doesn’t distract from the portrait.

Tip Tuesday "Patterns"

In general, we recommend an individual to wear solid colors for the portraits. If you enjoy patterned outfits, look for something tone on tone or with a smaller, less distracting print. Textured fabrics work well too.

Tip Tuesday "The Undershirt"

It’s easy to think about the top layer of clothing, but don’t forget the undershirt can be just as important. The collar should be straight and NOT stretched out, frayed or ripped. And if you choose a button up shirt in a darker color, consider a darker undershirt too.

Retouching a portrait should still look natural

With all the filters and automatic editing software on our phones these days, we feel even more strongly now, that portrait retouching should be as natural as possible. Just because something can be done, doesn’t mean it should be done. While some photographers may automatically widen eyes, arch eyebrows, straighten teeth and thin body parts, we want our portraits to reflect the true beauty of the individual.
