Why shoot with Efani?
Great shots rarely “JUST HAPPEN” and skilled photographers don’t rely on luck to get the shot.
Thoughtful care and attention
Efani has years of experience with professional models and individuals with absolutely no modeling experience whatsoever (e.g., actors, authors, musicians, politicians, business people, etc.). Efani will help you relax, assist you with posing and work patiently with you to create high quality, flattering images.
The Best Team
Efani works with the best professional hair stylists, make up artists, image consultants, wardrobe stylists and set designers that will help you make your creative vision a reality.
The Best Equipment
Efani works with a Nikon D7000DSLR advanced format camera, Nikon and Tamron lenses and a 28 megapixel Leaf Aptus digital back featuring a 44×33 sensor which is 68% larger than a full frame Canon or Mamiya. Efani also utilizes a Canon 7D DSLR for headshots and wedding photography. The much larger medium format sensor produces true 16-bit images for unequalled color accuracy, stunning clarity and an unrivaled 12-stop dynamic range of contrast.
Efani will personally edit and crop all of your images and present your proofs in a variety of looks (e.g., color, black and white, sepia, various cropping, etc.). Proofs are made available on-line usually within 24-48 hours of your shoot.
HIgh end, professional, diamond quality, comprehensive retouching available.
Efani uses an arsenal of lighting including portable Alienbees & Paul C. Huff power packs, huge umbrellas & soft boxes and 8’x8′ diffusion panels to beautifully light even the most remote and challenging locations.
Some magazine and celebrity shoots allow only minutes to capture the shot. Efani has the skills and experience necessary to capture extraordinary shots when time is a critical factor.
