What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Negatives, Prints, Proof CD of All Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Yes. Every photo taken is color corrected to my preference. My clients regularly tell me they like how vibrant and colorful my images are. If there is any image you would like changed in any way I am happy to offer you creative control of your images.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. Any location or type of light is perfect. Dim light, after dark images are great fun. Natural light, existing ambient light so genuine and flattering. Some shoots it is best not to be intrusive with lighting, and some shoots it is best to bring in all the studio lamps to light everyone perfectly.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I currently shoot Digital 35mm format. I shoot with FX cameras and lenses which means full frame.
How many photographers do you work with?
I shoot by myself. I shoot one event per day to guarantee you my full and undivided attention.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. There are no second shooters. This guarantees you that all the photos seen in my ad's and on my web page were taken by me.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
I will book one event per day. Most weekends during the summer two weddings will be shot per weekend. Some weekends four or five events will be photographed.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
No. I have never missed a shoot. That being said. If I were unable to shoot your event I would reimburse any funds paid and assist you in finding a suitable replacement.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
For camera gear,
 
 I bring two camera bodies, The Nikon D800 and the Nikon D800E 
 enough digital film to shoot 2000 images. 
 
 I bring a primary wide angle lens, a back up wide angle lens, The Nikon 14-24mm & Tonika 16-50mm
 I bring a primary medium range zoom, and a back up, The Nikon 24-70mm & Tonika 16-50mm
 I bring a telephoto, and a backup, The Nikon 70-200VRII, & Nikon 80-200
 
 For lighting gear, 
 
 I prefer to use natural light when possible.
 When the light needs to be supplemented I have up to six primary light sources that are raised on light stands and can be placed around the event. Each light stand can be outfitted with various light diffusers for various light conditions.
 
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, 
 
 As noted above, I have back up for every piece of gear.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Most people prefer my day rate. You can higher me by the hour if you like.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
My standard package includes unlimited shooting time. Most of my clients will not worry about the time.
 
 My standard package includes four hours. Additional hours are $225.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I do not have a policy or any requirements for breaks or meals. 
 
 I usually will eat when the bride and groom eat.
Do you charge for travel?
In most cased I do not charge for travel. I will only charge for travel if I need to spend the night or hop a plane to make your event.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
Proofs are ready to view online within five business days. After weekends where multiple weddings have been photographed I will ask for up to ten business days
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
I offer online proofing for free.
 Printed proofs are included in some packages.
 When not included printed proofs are $250
How long can the client keep the proofs?
The client can keep the proofs.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
In most cases the client shares the rights to the images with me.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes. I need to be able to share recent photos with perspective clients in order to show them what my current work looks like.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes. Digital files are usually recorded to disk in Jpeg format. Some clients prefer the raw digital files. That is fine. At this time DVD data disk is the best way to provide the files.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes. Online proofing will be available within a few days after your wedding. The online proofs are in a password protected gallery.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer a variety of albums. Clients are welcome by the studio to see what options there are.
When will the client get the final album?
If the client purchases a package that has an album provided yes. If not they can purchase one in addition.

Modern Art did all the kinds of photos we wanted for our big wedding day and more! We gave our photographer samples of what we liked and he did exactly as we asked. He came out to the site to scope the angles and get ideas weeks beforehand. We also provided him a list with the combinations of photos and he made sure that he went down the list and got all of the combinations of the wedding party and family that we wanted. The photos of the ceremony were phenomenal and he captured every minute of the hour long ceremony. We can basically relive the moment by looking at each photo and remember which part of the ceremony it was. We asked that he do a private photo shoot with the bride and groom, the wedding party, the extended family, and artsy photos of the rings, boquets, etc. He had many different lenses and lightings he used and knew exactly when and where to use them. Modern Art was very responsive to our needs and very directable/flexible. I highly recommend this company to anyone having a major event or wedding. Robert is easy to work with and very open to your ideas. I got exactly what I was looking for in Modern Photography.

He was wonderful, fun and you can tell how much he really enjoys his job and captures every moment! I had fear that him being one person he would miss moments but boy was I wrong! I would highly recommend Robert and plan to use him as well in our future!

Robert is a great photographer who approaches an assignment both with professionalism and care. One of the hardest things to find as far as vendors go, is someone who is readily available. Robert answered all of our questions and addressed any concerns the same day. During the photoshoot, he made us feel comfortable and took great photos. We also got our pictures back, edited, within a few days of shooting both for the engagement pictures and wedding pictures. You definitely get your money's worth and more. I would recommend Robert to anyone I know.

I cannot speak highly enough of Robert Knapp and Modern Art Photograph. He did a beautiful job on our engagement photos and took our breath away on our wedding photos.

He was so professional and flexible. He woke up at the crack of dawn to photograph our pre-wedding crossfit workout! He was there when my bouquet was delivered, and it was different than what I had expected, and he was so kind and reassured me that it looked great. Every person in the wedding party kept telling me how much fun our photographer was and how excited they were to see the photos.

I also cannot believe how fast he got our photos back to us.

His creativity is incredible and he worked so well with our videographer as well. He used an amazing blend of photo journalism and posed pictures. I would recommend him to anyone, and I can say without a doubt that I will use Modern Art Photograph for all of our future photography needs.

We had Modern Art Photographer do our wedding and couldn’t be happier! Great personality, very professional, easy going, very affordable and an overall great value. We selected the whole day package- which was a great because we got every moment of the day. He showed up while my bridesmaids and I got ready and stayed til the very end of the night! It was nice not worrying about hourly cost or overtime cost that we were running into with other vendors. The quality of the photos were beautiful - unbelievably vibrant and clear! The nice thing, the photos were ready by the time we got back from our honeymoon, we didn’t have to wait for weeks or months to see them. He was also extremely accessible- replied to emails almost instantaneously, always willing to meet with my then fiancé and I for random meetings and willing to do customization of the photos and packages long after the wedding.

Overall he was a great vendor that we plan on using in the future for anniversary or family photos!

I had met with several photographers before meeting with Robert (Modern Art Photograph), but my search ended there. Not only is he one of the most pleasant people i have met, he is also very professional and courteous. After meeting so many overly arrogant people within this industry, it was so refreshing to sit down with Robert over a cup of coffee and have a great conversation about the wedding and what we were looking for. A few things to remember about Modern Art Photograph when searching for a photographer:

1). He does not have any time restraints! I challenge you to find another photographer that works like that. He did our engagement shoot and our wedding and both were all day events that we paid a flat rate for (not hourly)

2). His prices are great. He actually said to me that he felt some in his industry were charging ridiculous amounts and he would rather book an event every weekend and be doing what he loved than raise his prices.

3). You OWN the rights to the photos and can do whatever you would like with them. He will send you a DVD of all the photos and you don't have to buy prints. That being said, should you like he will put together a beautiful wedding album for you and your family at a very reasonable cost.

Overall, we had a wonderful experience and we love our photos. He captured the energy and emotion of our special day and we are so grateful. Highly recommended!

Robert was awesome for our wedding!! He showed up at my folks' house and didn't even bat an eye when I told him us ladies were hardly even ready enough for "getting-ready" photos. We were behind schedule all day and he just went with the flow the whole time and got most of the pictures I wanted without me even noticing! During the reception, he blended seamlessly into the crowd and got some wonderful candid shots of everyone. He was easy to talk to, our bridal party felt instantly comfortable so we were able to get some really fun pictures. He also had our pictures up on his website after only a week--amazing!

I cannot say enough good things about this experience. He was an amazing photographer, produced the most gorgeous pictures, and felt like an old friend--not a total stranger. Robert was incredibly easy to work with and did tons of extra work, scouting our destination wedding site the week before our event (and he didn't even charge any travel fees for any of the travel he did). He made us feel comfortable and free to do what we needed on our wedding day while capturing every moment. We never felt forced or posed...it all was very natural and turned out fantastic. So much more than we ever imagined. Thank You!

Choosing a photographer for your wedding day is a big decision and I am so happy that we hired Robert to be the photographer for our wedding! He was so attentive, professional, positive, funny, and creative. Before the wedding, whenever I would email Robert, he would get back to me almost immediately. His prices were outstanding for the value and fit into our budget. There were no hidden fees. Since he had never been to our venue before, he took the time before the wedding to scope out the place together so that we can make sure to not miss any photo opportunities during our wedding day. My husband and I are a little camera shy so I had a little bit of anxiety of having our photos taken all day. Throughout the big day, Robert made us feel so comfortable and we could feel like ourselves. We had so much fun during our photo shoot and the pictures show it! When we got the pictures, soon after the wedding, they turned out so beautiful!! I was so surprised on how many photos he took and how wonderful they turned out! He captured EVERYTHING! Throughout the ceremony and the reception, he caught a lot of beautiful candid moments while being so inconspicuous. I didn't feel like the camera was in my face the entire night. It was great! I couldn't be more happier how the photos turned out. They were absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much, Robert, for being there to capture our wedding day so that we can look back at the photos for years to come!!

Throughout the ceremony and the reception, he caught a lot of beautiful candid moments while being so inconspicuous. I didn't feel like the camera was in my face the entire night. It was great! I couldn't be more happier how the photos turned out. They were absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much, Robert, for being there to capture our wedding day so that we can look back at the photos for years to come!! Read less

He was an amazing photographer and we plan on wanting to keep using him as we grow as a family. He took so many amazing and beautiful photographs of our wedding and engagement pictures. He caught priceless moments that only a fantastic photographer would get! Robert's photography is well worth the money and he is very reasonably priced, specially for how great his quality of photographs!

I cannot even begin to explain how wonderful Robert was! We eloped to Oregon and so I did all my research online. I ordered a package that included an engagement shoot and a wedding shoot. Robert picked us up from our rental and took us all around the city for our engagement shoot. He was extremely patient and personable. He made us really comfortable and we were super glad we did the engagement shoot because it made the wedding shoot an even more comfortable experience... On our wedding day, Robert came to the coast and spent the day with us at our venue as well as in different locations along the ocean. By the time we left we thought of him as a friend. He gave us access to our pictures within a week and allowed us to tell him what edits we wanted. The pictures look great! He really did a good job capturing our personalities through the photo! I really wish I knew more people in Oregon so I could refer Robert to all of them! You can't go wrong with choosing him to be your wedding photographer!!

It was a pleasure working with Robert from Modern Art Photography. I live in Hawaii and we arranged everything via email and phone. As a bride let me tell you that it's very nerve racking arranging everything from miles away, but Robert was always quick with his email responses so I wasnt wondering when I would get an answer. He is very professional and worked with us with whatever we wanted. Our pictures came out beautifully and we highly recommend Modern Art Photography. Thanks, Robert!

Robert was extremely professional, helpful, and a pleasure to have at our event. We could not be more pleased with his services. He was extremely flexible, and provided us with exactly what we wanted. Robert was never pushy or over-zealous, rather he accomodated our preferences and worked with us to meet our needs. We definitely recommend his services, and we will use him again if we ever need a professional photogropher.

I can't say enough good things about Robert Knapp and his partner Carrie. We started out with an afternoon engagement shoot in Portland that included unlimited time, outfit changes, and locations. They were really able to get us relaxed and comfortable, so that we looked like ourselves in each picture. No cheesy, overly posed pics! Robert and Carrie really went above and beyond to get the perfect shots, even stopping traffic on a busy street in NW Portland so that we could get trees with twinkling lights in the background. Fast forward to the wedding, where they blended in yet found a way to capture all of the details and mood of the event. Now we have an abundance of beautiful, flattering pictures; there are so many I like that I am having trouble deciding which ones to make prints of. Another positive: Robert and Carrie understood that we are both busy professionals, and were completely flexible around our schedules, even though they live on the other side of town. I would highly recommend these photographers, and will definitely use them again in the future.

Robert & Carrie were really incredible to work with . They seemed more like friends than photographers. Each time we contacted them, Robert responded almost immediately. His website gives you everything upfront, there's no hidden costs, he gives you everything you could possibly ask for: time, attention, value, flexibility, guidance, and support. They also follow through quickly on any edits or changes desired to photos, dates, times, etc. I would refer anyone to them without hesitation.

We have nothing but positive things to say about Robert and Carrie. They did an AMAZING job for us!! Robert is very knowledgeable and passionate about his work and it shows. He helped us to choose beautiful spots for our pictures and was so flexible with our schedule on the big day. They managed to maintain the perfect blend of doing some minor directing (to be sure we got some of the important shots) without seeming intrusive in the least. Everything went really smoothly and we have the most memorable moments captured - it was perfect! The images are so beautiful and rich with color! I love what they did with the light during the day and once the sun went down.

They also had our pictures ready VERY fast - I have many other friends who have recently been married and had to wait way too long to receive their images. Robert had ours ready only days later!

They also did a wonderful job putting up with our crazy family! :)

Thank you Robert and Carrie!!!

My fiance and I stumbled upon Modern Art Photograph, and how incredibly happy we are that we did! Not only are their package deals oustanding (with great prices) but the quality in the art of their pictures, their photographs, blow your mind away. From their refreshingly laid back attitudes, to their welcoming input on every shoot, to how quickly they make your photos available to view, make them incomparable. Robert & Carrie work awesome as a team and are so passionate about their work it bleeds through in every shot they catch. My fiance and I know that others have and will feel the same way about their wedding photos and we do about ours.

Robert and Carrie did such a great job photographing our wedding! They were respectful, flexible, and most of the time I didn't even notice they were there. My husband and I met with them a few times before the wedding to build rapport and so they could make sure we were completely comfortable with what they would be doing on the big day. They were open to taking direction, but I didn't feel it was necessary because Robert is such a talented photographer. Robert and Carrie make a great team, and they are super nice people to boot! If you're looking for an awesome photographer for your big day, look no further!

My husband and I loved having Robert do our wedding photos. Robert was very nice and worked with us on what we wanted for our photos. We were both really comfortable with Robert and his assistant carie. Both Robert are carrie were really nice. They came early to the wedding so I wasn't having to stress about if they would be there on time and they stayed until my husband and I left. I really recommend them to other couples for photos.

I was a little apprehensive about finding a photographer for our wedding online. After reading the outstanding reviews for Robert Knapp and Modern Art Photography, I decided to schedule a meeting. Once my husband and I met Robert and his assistant Carrie, there really was no doubt they were the ones we wanted shooting our wedding. They are laid back but have an exceptional eye for detail. We couldn’t be happier with our photographs. If you are looking for a Portland Wedding Photographer that will do a phenomenal job, Robert Knapp is the way to go!

We recently just got married and we went with Modern Art Photograph for our photography. All I can say is that Robert did a fantastic job. The photos turned out amazing and the best part was that he blended in very well while capturing amazing photographs. For other photographers you might be spending $2000-$3000 dollars, but Modern Art Photograph was a heck of a value for way less. Thanks so much,

Robert is a phenomenal photographer. My husband and I researched a lot of photographers before choosing Robert. He incredibly documented every aspect of my wedding. His professional and courteous manner allowed him to work with everyone from my 3 year old niece to my 89 year old grandfather. I could list all day the positive traits that made Robert an absolute pleasure to work with. But, when it's all over, what matters is what develops. And Robert delivered just that. Beautifully, artistic photos.

For the quality and pricing of his photography, MODERN ART/Robert Knapp deserves HERO status for his unlimited time commitment first and foremost. Secondly, Robert and his co-photographer Carrie were confident, unobtrusive, mixed in well with our guests, and actually spent hours studying our requested photography style (a very difficult and artistic style) the day before our wedding, so our objective was fresh on their minds. They handled our impromptu requests wonderfully, were very humble, and took direction as well as courteously gave direction. The results were that we ended up with some astounding photos that we will truly be able to treasure for the rest of our lives. Compared to some other top-rated photographers in P-town we met and evaluated…GO WITH MODERN ART PHOTOGRAPH, especially if you want a great price and have a ‘style’ to accomplish beyond just your square-meal-deal of frilly flowers, lace and liquid sunshine jelly wedding pics (though he will do that just fine too). Lastly, Robert did an excellent job ‘winging it’ for us even though we personally ran out of time to provide him with a written list of requested shots: clearly he has the experience to produce what most couples are looking for. Ceremony held: Grace Bible Church, Neo-Gothic, downtown PDX, May 9, 2009.

Robert was with us all day from the preparation to the end of the reception. Occasionally he set up some formally posed photos but for the most part he was just there working in the background. At first I was concerned that having a photographer would take something away from the experience for our guests. However It was clear once Robert began to setup that his unobtrusive style and well mannered approach was exactly what we were looking for. Thank you for everything Robert.
