Marco Secchi Portraits and Photo shoots

With regular commissions from international papers and magazines, top agencies and business clients I have photographed many famous people, from senior members of the Royal Family to Actors, Writers, VIP and CEO and I am working exclusively as a professional photographer . My portraits are widely published on International Press and Books and are often used in International Museums and Galleries.

I create bespoke portrait photography for individuals, couple, children and family portraits, corporate and editorial portraiture, and intimate portraits.

  • 20  fully edited color and black and white images, supplied at full resolution, on dvd/cd, within two weeks of your session. I will also include web-sized files for use on MySpace, Facebook or for emailing to friends and family. A private gallery to display and show your images to your friends and family will be provided for one year,  Cost of Disc or Transfer of images  £100

After the photos are brought into the digital studio, they are immediately backed-up, and your client area on this website is created. You will receive an email any time between 2 and 7 days later depending on the nature of the shoot, with information about how to log on to your client area. You will receive a choice of normal, Photoshopped, retouched, Black and White  and sepia images .

The client area is private and not listed or can even be a password-protected portion of this website where you are able to view photographs, download the files and select the ones you require for printing. In some cases you may have all photos. If there is a limit to the number of photos you can have, the reason for this is that every photo undergoes detailed review and analysis according to quality standards, as well as 'post production' to ensure all images have the same look and feel in terms of the quality of their light. This can be a time-consuming process. Prints can be purchased directly  from a professional laboratory in your country (90% of the time) , printed at a very  high standard can be ordered by yourself or family and friends. The gallery will be available for one year and you will be able to give out the address.

Connoisseur Option for selected customer only. Using only Film or Digital and Medium Format Cameras to shoot high definition portraits with the traditional look and feel. Most of the best portrait photographers use either Medium Format or larger format cameras.  This simply relates to the quality of the image and the look of the image.  The shallower depth of field of lenses of equivalent focal length in these larger formats (an 80 mm lens is "normal" in MF and a 300-360 mm lens is "normal" in 8x10, versus a 50 mm lens for a full frame 35 mm DSLR), gives images a different look. The different look, combined with the additional smoothness and resolution versus the smaller cameras  yields better portraits.  There are plenty of reasons why Cartier Bresson used a Leica M camera, why Edward Weston used an 8x10 inch view camera and why Annie Leibowitz prefers Medium Format, just to name a few. Price strictly on application and based on project etc.

Please note that the Photographer retains full copyright at all times.

I never supply RAW images if you need them ask before and may be able to send few selected ones, Please ask to see Terms and Conditions.
