Jennifer M. Ramos left Dallas, Texas to pursue a degree in journalism. While she may have changed her college major in pursuit of a degree, the photojournalism class and hours spent in the darkroom made a deep and lasting impression.
Ramos is currently based in Austin, Texas, holds a liberal arts degree from the University of Texas, and is known internationally as an accomplished roller derby photographer. The day-job incarnation of her chosen career takes her to Title 1 schools, where she is directly involved with elementary school students, both teaching photography and directing the artist-mentor program, Little Artist Big Artist. Additionally, Ramos infuses her unique way of seeing into event coverage, stock photography, weddings, and portrait sessions.
Ramos' artistic passion lies in film photography, outdoor exploration, advancing toward new challenges, and making photographs from what's often seen as mundane subject matter. She draws inspiration from William Eggleston, whose wife Rosa quoted him as saying, “Now you must not take anything for granted when you are looking at a picture. Never do that. Every single little tiny space on that page works and counts.”
Policies + Rates:
All payment must be finalized on or before the day of the shoot, wedding, or event. In the case of weddings, half-payment of the anticipated total fee is required 30 days or more prior to the shoot. Please plan to remit remainder of payment the day of the shoot. A deposit and signed agreement are required to hold the date.
For other shoots a $50 deposit is required at the time the shoot is booked, to hold the date with the remainder being due the day f the shoot.
In the case of cancellation, I keep $50 (that is, $50 of your deposit is non-refundable). After one failed attempt to reschedule (with the exception being weather or extenuating circumstances such as illness), I reserve the right to cancel the shoot, and keep the deposit, as compensation for not being able to book other jobs on those days.
Please contact me to book a date or discuss fees. Session fees are $140 per hour, one-hour minimum. Additional fees may apply based on location (distance or need for accommodations), and the number of people being photographed.
If you need a simple consultation (does not involve me providing images to the client) to learn something about your camera or discuss ways you can achieve the desired results in your own photography, please contact me to discuss what I can do for you.
