My name is Gerardo Garciacano, I live in Bern Switzerland and I do opera for a living. I bought my first DSLR in Germany while working as a soloist at Oper Köln. It was then that I discovered a passion for portrait photography. It came only natural to start photographing my colleagues and then colleagues of colleagues. Mostly opera singers, but not exclusively.
If you would like to book a photo session, please write to contact[@]stageportraits.com My studio is at the lower level of the Alte Feuerwehr Viktoria. If you don't live in Bern, I travel a lot during the year for concerts and have always my camera with me.
I offer a few price categories. It all starts at 350chf for the mini shoot. It consist of a first talk to define your goals, a 1-1.5h shooting session (in studio or on location), we then choose together the best 2-3 photos and I retouch them. You will receive those as a download in a gallery. In my experience, this is the minimum time required by most people to start getting comfortable in front of the camera. For longer sessions I charge 150chf per hour on top of the mini shoot. Please contact me at the eMail above for a quote on your specific project.
