Haunted by History Craig Owens Alexandria Hotel
The Alexandria Hotel

Craig Owens of Bizarre Los Angeles now offers special photo packages for conceptual, Old Hollywood style portraiture. The shooting location can either take place in a historic (and haunted) venue, your home, business, or a customized studio space.

Prices depend on the scope of the concept.

A portrait sitting costs $150.00 per shoot for those who buy Haunted by History Vol. 1. ( not including possible location fees, wardrobe or hair/makeup). The cost is $200 for those who do not want to buy the book but want to have stylized photos (not including possible location fees, wardrobe or hair/makeup).

It is advisable that you provide your own wardrobe. Hair and makeup will cost extra if we decide to call in a professional. But if you can do it yourself or have a friend that will do it for you, terrific!  Location fees are often negotiable but if you want your photos to be take at an exotic or expensive locale, you will need to pay for the location.

I don't typically shoot weddings, but if I agree to shoot yours, the fees can be negotiated depending on your budget. Just know that I do not like to shoot the traditional, warm and fuzzy style of wedding photos. A bare minimum price for my shooting a small wedding with no extras is $600 plus travel and room.  Fee also includes wedding rehearsal and reception.

Businesses can benefit from eye-catching photos that not only captures the customer's imagination, but tells a story. And it is no secret that my photos and marketing skills have brought additional business and increased public interest to a number of haunted, Southern California Hotels. If you are interested in hosting a shoot for your own business, contact me. I have a deep well of creative ideas and concepts as well as a talent pool of very professional actors and models, MUA, wardrobe stylists, etc. ready to assist your needs.  Prices vary according to vision, scope, and time allowed to create a look that makes your business stand out from the crowd.

Bizarre Los Angeles' photographic mission is simple: keep costs down, make all photos uniquely stylish and timeless, work within your budget, and to make you and/or your business shine like a star.

A non-refundable deposit is required before any photo shoot takes place.
