Information you should read if considering engaging Pixel Perfect You (PPY) as a photographer.

Photo Locations

PPY is open to photograph at any public location such as a park, plaza, street/sidewalk, etc.  Some parks or gardens require a permit to photograph there and PPY will let the client know of any such fees.  PPY will scout a client requested location prior to the photo session.

For safety reasons, PPY will not photograph on 'live' railroad tracks. 

Outfits / Styling

I recommend no more than three outfits (two changes) during a senior session and two outfits (one change) during an individual/couples sessions so we spend more of the time we have together photographing you in different poses and settings.  Please note that some locations may not offer amenities for changing.

I also recommend that you bring styling items such as hair brush, hairspray, mirror, hair clips, hair ties, make-up kit, etc. in case your hair or makeup needs attention between outfit changes or it is a windy day.  

Touchups / Photo Editing

Please visit my retouching page to read what is included and what is not included for retouching/editing of photographs from a PPY photo session.


Proofs are lower resolution photos that are culled from the session by PPY.  Proofs, like contact sheets of yesteryear, are meant for the client to view and select final images.  Proofs will not be touched up or edited except as detailed on my retouching page.  Proof images will contain a watermark over them because they are not considered licensed final images.  Our proof galleries will not offer download feature because they are not licensed final images.

Final Images

Final images are those selected by the client from the proof gallery and delivered to the client. The quantity of final images delivered depends on the session that was purchased.  The final images will be edited and/or touched up as detailed on my retouching page.  They will be high resolution (at least 3,000 pixels on the short edge).  In addition to having the final images delivered to you onto a DVD (.jpg format), they will be available on an online gallery for no less than 90 days to allow you, your friends and family the opportunity to conveniently purchase photographic prints and products.  The client can also download images directly from the final image online gallery and share the gallery through social media and direct url links.

Raw Files

Although PPY typically captures images in a raw digital format, PPY does not deliver raw image files to the client.    

Copyright and Licensing

Unless agreed to in writing, Pixel Perfect You (Joe Tinervia) retains all copyrights to the photos produced during photo session.  PPY grants licenses to people to use photos for non-commercial purposes (social sharing, printing, headshot for website, newsletter, business card).  PPY's written estimate and agreement detail the actual licensing terms granted to the client.
