Inside each of us is a multitude of personalities; each accompanied by its own special emotions. When creating a personal portrait, the subject plays a vital role in the development of the final image.
Far beyond simply posing, A.KAYE works to elicit as many responses and to generate as many ideas as possible.
Time before the session is always necessary, in order to discuss everything from wardrobe and location to photographic techniques and digital effects.
"My part as artist is making wishes come true.
Presenting ideas the subject hasn't been able to express, we'll explore as many alternatives as possible."
Since A. KAYE’s always on the go, he’s found that meeting with clients by appointment ensures everyone receives his full focus. Luckily, arranging an appointment is quick and easy!

Iris-Giclée Prints - Giclée (Gee-CLAY) is French for sprayed ink. An Iris-Giclée print closely resembles an original watercolor painting. 100% natural dyes are applied to acid-free cotton paper or canvas, resulting in images with the clarity and detail of traditional photographs, plus the added artistic qualities of velvety texture, soft color, and hand torn edges. Giclée artwork will be printed on canvas when posterized technique is selected. All Iris-Giclée prints include basic retouching.
