I am the sole PPA* Certified Professional Photographer who also holds the PPA degree of Master of Photography, not only in here in Binghamton, but in Broome County and beyond. That makes me Binghamton’s Unique Photographer.
Well trained, experienced, creative, accomplished and, for your safety, insured, I create works of photographic art that are affordable. In this website you will find fine-art portraits, audition images for dancers and fitness, event coverage, and architectural studies. The images do well as fine art prints that are framed traditionally, large canvases that look like paintings, or modern-style prints on acrylic or even aluminum.
- NANCY BASMANN PHOTOGRAPHY
My work in the Binghamton region is unusual in three main ways:
A PPA Master of Photography, I am unique in Binghamton as a photographer who submits images for judgement by the judges at the annual International Photographic Competition. My artistic skills continue to be honed through the competition, and my work continues to appear in the PPA Loan Books published by Marathon Press. The PPA awards have been mainly portraits that are character-studies. The aptitude, the skill, and the artistry to create the character studies serve my clients. The best portraits make clients not just look good but also convey their character. Other awards have been in the areas of architecture and still-lifes that make excellent fine-art prints. The images appear on this website under “Awards”.
isitors to Nancy Basmann Photography will find a new studio that is large and fully-equipped. Having trained to become a PPA Certified Professional Photographer, I am careful to do things the right way. The studio is 24′ long and 17′ wide, with a 13′ vaulted ceiling, large enough for dancers. The dressing-room permits clients comfortably to change their outfits for variety during their shoot. My lights are not pinned down like those in a commercial studio.
Photography is about painting with light. A PPA Certified Professional Photographer trained and experienced in the use of light, I use all light sources. My equipment is high quality, ready to capture the leap of a dancer. With a head-shot, my aim is to render the best light that focuses the viewer’s attention at the eyes and molds the facial features, creating the drama that makes the portrait special, intriguing and attractive.
A Binghamton Photographer who is a Master of Photography and a Certified Professional Photographer and who has a large, fully equipped studio–I am unique and that will show in your portraits that are artistic and beautifully lit.
I would love to meet with you to discuss what you would like in your image and explain what is involved in your shoot. We will discuss what you will wear and the makeup for the shoot. I am generous with my time. The initial consultation in my studio, which often takes an hour, is free. The photo-shoots are at the location of the clients’ choice and bear a flat-rate charge, so we can be relaxed about the time. During the shoot in the studio, I tether my camera to a laptop, which means that clients may see the progress of the shoot and let me know if they would like any changes. Shoots with me are a team job. After a shoot, I have a look at the images, polish them up, and invite the clients back to the studio to decide which images they wish to buy and how they want the images displayed.
