Senior Portraits

Senior Portraits are some of my favorite kinds of portraits to take because of their ability to capture the true potential of a person. The portraits you get when working with me stand out for high quality and attention to detail. I offer professional off-camera lighting with stylized post-production effects.

Jordan did our album artwork, it started with and idea sketched out a napkin and ended up with the best album art design I've ever had. He took careful time and attention to change shading, change positioning and change overall tones and colors within the photo to match what was in our Mind's Eye. What's more, he made an animated image the art, so we can use it on Spotifyexclamation point - it's unreal!read more

I hired Jordan to photograph my wedding, and would hire him again in a heartbeat. He did a spectacular job from start to finish. He worked with my fiance and I on photo concepts we liked, and incorporated our ideas into his shoot--he made it personal, and we appreciated that about his service. Truthfully, we were already sold on his skills before we were married. He did a phenomenal job on our engagement photos and we were hooked!read more

After Desperately looking for a photographer for several weeks, I came across Jordan Ewert’s link on Google. My senior pictures were shot beautifully at the location of my choice. Jordan had a remarkable amount of patience, and has a very flexible schedule that makes him easy to work with. Although it was a hot, sweaty day, the photos turned out spectacular + Jordan was kind enough to give me a promo code that allowed me to order a certain amount of prints at no cost! 10/10!read more

First and foremost, Jordan is a skilled and gifted photographer and his photos of our family are the best I've ever owned. He has a keen eye for scenery and a natural ability to grab unscripted tender moments. He's also kind, patient, and finds the perfect balance of professionalism and humor, which makes it easy to get comfortable. Also, I'm old as hell and he found a way to make me look my best without noticeable photoshoppery, if he did at all. Thank you, Jordan!read more

About Me

Jordan Ewert

When I was younger I became interested in making drawings because it allowed me to dream and create simultaneously. In 2003, during my senior year of high school, I began taking photographs and developing black-and-white prints in the darkroom. Since 2007 I’ve been working with digital photography and image retouching. In 2016 I received my Master’s of Fine-Arts in Photography from Eastern Michigan University and am currently advocating my role as an educator; working in the fields of technology, web applications, and visual media. 

When I’m not spending time with friends and family my favorite thing to do is explore the world around me with a camera in hand. Photography, for me, is more than just capturing a moment in time. It’s about selectively fine-tuning reality to promote an emotional connection.

What's Included

Senior Portraits are some of my favorite kinds of portraits to take because of their ability to capture the true potential of a person. The portraits you get when working with me stand out for high quality and attention to detail. I offer professional off-camera lighting with stylized post-production effects.

  • Free Phone consultation and/or in-person meeting
  • Personalized Pinterest Board for inspiration shot list
  • Facebook closed group (optional) for easy communication

After we talk over the phone, video chat, or meet in person, I’ll start putting together an action plan that best meets your needs. You’ll have a good idea of the plan before your senior portrait session takes place. From this plan I scope out locations and provide examples of what your shoot will look like.

Even if you don’t select Jordan Ewert Photography as your photographer for senior portraits, you can get plenty of inspiration from the following Pinterest Boards. This is the kind of style/imagery I’m generally looking towards creating for my clients.

  • Unlimited outfits & locations

Fit in as many outfits and locations as time allows for. I don’t believe in restricting the variety of chosen outfits or locations.

  • Professional, off-camera lighting

Off-camera lighting offers a more dramatic effect than on-camera flash. Many photographers use on-camera flash without the attention to detail of filling in harsh shadows from sunlight.

  • Studio headshot + Yearbook submission

I can match the background to anything of your choosing or what’s required by your school’s yearbook committee. I’ll work with your school and handle yearbook submissions.

  • Access to additional images we shot

You’ll also be able to preview every good image we take, meaning all images without awkward looks, blinking, or other major issues. You’ll have up to 30 days after session to review all outtakes with the option to add them to your final image selection.

  • Basic edits included for all final portraits

Basic edits include the removal of acne/blemishes as well as the removal of distracting background elements (street signs, people, tree branches, etc). In most cases, hair (i.e. loose strands) is included here as well.

After our session, you’ll receive a link in your inbox, usually within 48 hours. This link includes a password protected web gallery. From here, comments can be made on images for final edits (i.e. remove shadows, fix hair, tighten waist, etc).

  • Secure, online password protected gallery

Web versions of final images become available for download on final payment (so you can share online through email or social media) and are immediately made available from a secure online gallery link I provide. Web images are sized at 800 pixels @72ppi on the long edge.

  • Web-Resolution downloads available for all final edits
  • Prints are shipped directly to your door, satisfaction guaranteed!

Prints are ordered through White House Custom Color, a professional photographer’s print lab, and delivered directly to your door. Prints are ordered and even custom-cropped right from your home computer. My goal is to make this process as simple and straightforward as possible.

  • Alternate versions for every final image

You will receive the following variations for every final edit.

  1. Color (color corrected)
  2. Split tone (i.e. “vintage look” adj. for highlights/shadows)
  3. Black & White
  4. Sepia

** = included on essential & luxury packages

I specialize in background removal, compositing techniques, and stylization effects. Most of my examples showcase advanced stylization brought forth from spending the extra time working through a photograph. All of my advanced editing and animation is highly personalized.

Additional Information

Advanced edits include background/sky removal and compositing. Think of advanced editing as any edit to your selected photograph(s) that falls outside the range of what’s included in basic edits. Our advanced editing is billed at $80/hour. This hourly rate is usually good for two images.

Photo animations are Instagram-ready 15-second video loops you will receive via a digital download file. Otherwise known as Cinemagraph Effects, these are perfect for breathing extra life into your portraits. Examples of motion include elements such as light leak effects, snow falling, fog rising, fire, wind, etc. Photo animations are billed at $80/hour. You’ll receive final 4K video file as a digital download as well for each animated final image. This hourly rate is usually good for two images.

When ordering high-resolution files, select “buy gallery download (original)” on shop.jordanewert.com. Doing this will unlock files immediately for high-resolution downloads (a link will be sent to your email) to the entire gallery and notify me to send you a USB drive with files to your address.

High-Resolution-Downloads-on-Smugmug

High-Resolution images will become “unlocked” approximately 11 months after our senior portrait session was booked. All final images will be delivered on a USB drive in JPEG format to address on file during this time. After the 11 month mark, a secure download link will become available as well in your secure web gallery for the next additional 30 days before expiring.

* High-Resolution images are available to purchase for $150 on USB drive if you prefer to make your own prints sooner than 11 months. This price unlocks ALL final edited images for immediate download. If you have print credits, that amount will go toward this cost. (example, $100 print credit will reduce high-res images on USB drive from $150 to $50).

When ordering a book online, select “buy gallery download (web)” on shop.jordanewert.com so I’m aware you’re purchasing a book order. The rest of the process will be taken care of through personal emails (my design, your image selections, etc).

Album-Order-on-Smugmug

Description: $100 for hardbound 10 page (5 spreads) 8×12 book design with 15-25 of your favorite images. Pages are printed on durable UV coated lustre paper designed to resist fingerprints and last a lifetime. Pages are bound in a hinged format so pages essentially lay flat when viewing each spread.

Helpful collaboration: Specify which of your favorite images should be highlighted in album design so I can display them in a larger format on your spreads during the initial design process.

Additional spreads (2 pages) are $5 each and can contain up to 12 images per-spread. I recommend between 1-8 images per spread so images don’t look too small, although this is your preference.

Spine of book is limited to text name + year.

Additional Sizes can be ordered as well. If you need something other than our standard 8×12 landscape book format we’ll work with you.

  • Once final edits are made for your final images, you’ll have the ability to order prints through my online shop. Image outtakes (extras) remain on my server for one-month and all final images remain hosted for one calendar year.
  • Additional images selected from outtakes folder are $5 each to perform a basic photo-edit and add to your final selections.
  • Basic edits include the removal of acne/blemishes as well as the removal of distracting background elements (street signs, people, tree branches, etc). In most cases, hair (i.e. loose strands) is included here as well.
  • If ordering the Essential or Variety package, substitutions for advanced edits or photo animations can be made in exchange for additional prints at the same value.
  • We’ll drive as far as 15 miles each way (from Dearborn, Michigan) and charge $.058 per mile after that.
