I love bags. Most especially I recently fell in love with The Hermes Birkin bag that sold for 1.9 million dollars. I don’t own a Birkin yet but this specific bag is covered with 2,000 diamonds and is designed by Ginz
a Tanaka. It is absolutely gorgeous and it is worth every penny. With a luxurious bag such as Birkin, you will get a special status within your community, you will be more respected, and you will be in the exclusive club of being one of the few to own such a bag. You will get this status even if you obtain one any Birkin bags for anywhere from $5,000 to $100,000 or more.
With art it is the same way. Art is one of the oldest ways people would get the exclusivity and status in their community. Just consider Rembrandt, Picasso, Van Gogh, Da Vinci, and others. Each of their pieces is selling for several hundred of million dollars because those artworks are original and one-of-a-kind.
Even if one is not a rich person per-say, he or she will find the money to obtain what they want. And the truth is that owning such a piece will bring you a higher status and more money because people will look at you differently.
I am proud to say that today in the year 2017 photography is the same exact way. Well, not every kind of photography but a photography that is viewed as art is. For instance, a portrait that is captured and sold by the photographer for $100 and can easily be reproduced at a local print shop is not valued as much. But an art piece that is custom-created, printed and turned into an original painting is very much one-of-a-kind and can be priced as such. No one else will own another one just like it.
My studio creates exactly those kinds of art pieces. They are not for every budget, as a matter of fact, a painted wall portrait in our studio can run anywhere between $1,000 and $8,000 or more. When a client commissions our studio for a custom-designed wall portrait, we won’t just put you in front of a backdrop and snap a picture. We will sit down with you, together create a unique look, then we will create or obtain the wardrobe, accessories, hair pieces, jewelry, and props necessary to create the exact look you dream of. Your final art piece will be unique, special, and exclusive to you. Moreover, the final product will be a painting that has been finished by amazing artists retained by our studio, not just a simple canvas print.
In today’s age, we are proud to offer this kind of luxurious product to you. No one does what we do. You won’t get our kind of portrait anywhere else in the world, and for this reason, we are proud to be the Birkin of Photography. We charge luxurious prices because art pieces created in our studio are worth every penny. You will get the exactly same stature and exclusivity by owning one of Allie Serrano custom portraits just like you will get with a Birkin bag.
