YOUR NEW YORK - BEYOND THE LANDMARKS
New York City: A million stories. Maybe yours is one of them. Maybe you were only here for a few days as a tourist. Maybe your grand parents lived here in the 20's. Whatever your special connection with New York, now you can hire a professional New York photographer to capture those places in black and white.
Send me out to get a photograph of your old High School.
Send me to the apartment building where your grandfather lived in 1912. Is it still there? If not, how about a shot of the street sign: Delancy and Houston? Or the supermarket that now stands in its place.
Send me to that pizza place down by Katz's where you met your wife. I'll photograph it for you.
Or maybe there is a landmark that you don't see in my portfolio of New York and would like to send me on a special assignment to get it. That's what I'm here for. Think of me as your foreign correspondent in New York. And not just Manhattan. I will cover the Bronx, Brooklyn, and maybe even Queens if you catch me in the right mood.
YOUR NEW YORK - A LA CARTE
If you just want one or two pictures for the living room, this is the way to go.
1) You pay a $150 non-refundable deposit (that will go towards the purchase of your first print). I will make every attempt to find the place you request, but if it doesn't exist, or if no pictures meet your requirements, then I will retain the deposit. If there are two or three places in the same area, then I will do that for the $150 deposit.
2) I will venture out to the place or places you request, and post several images online for you to choose from in a gallery of your own on my web site: DaveBeckerman.com/yourName. You let me know which print or prints you are interested in.
3) The first print is $150, subsequent copies of the same print are $50 each. (8 x 12 inch print matted on 16 x 20 mat). If you want to do your own matting, or would like a different size print, we talk about it.
YOUR NEW YORK - THE ALBUM
Same idea as above, but you know that you are going to want at least 10 different prints, and that you are going to want them in a hardbound album. [Pricing to be determined]
YOUR NEW YORK - THE NOTECARD
Notecards with your commissioned image can be made at an additional cost.
