q & a

Are you available for travel?

A.Yes! Let's talk about the details of your project, give me a call!

How long have you been doing this?

A.Good question! How long ago did I pick up my first camera? 17 years ago. How long have I been working as a paid photographer? 15 years, and nearly all of them focused on helping businesses share their brand, services, and products.

How many photos do we get?

A.That depends entirely upon the scope of your project. We'll discuss your goals for the shoot and take the quantity you need into account when scheduling your photoshoot.

How do you deliver photos?

A.You'll receive an email linking to a branded web gallery with two sections, Proof Gallery for making selections and Final Gallery to download all final images. It doesn't get any easier than that!

Do you retouch photos?

A.Absolutely! There's a range of work that can go into finishing photographs, all of which falls into the category of "Post-Production".
Here's the process for your photos: raw camera files go through basic image processing to optimize for color balance and exposure and are sent to you as proofs. Your selections from the proof gallery will be finalized with standard retouching, which may include compositing multiple images to produce a single photo. If there are additional retouching requirements, such as object removal, sky replacement, or anything else you'd like to enhance your image, that work will be billed at an additional hourly rate.

Whats your turn around time?

A.The initial proof gallery, when applicable, will be available within one business week for you to make selections within 10 business days. If I don't hear from you by then I'll reach out to touch base with you but otherwise make selections myself on your behalf. Final processed images will be delivered within 2-4 business weeks of selections, or of the shoot date if selections are not applicable. If expedited image processing is needed we can make it happen for a rush fee- just let me know!

How do we book you?

A.Please reach out via call, text, or email with the details of what you need and we'll get the ball rolling! My info is available on the Contact page.

How far out do you book?

A.As far as you need. I prefer to schedule at least two weeks out, but if something comes up last minute please still give me a call!

Is there anything that can help lower the cost?

A.YES! If there are other parties interested in the images such as vendors or collaborators, I can do a cost-share between parties. There is a slight upcharge for each party, and then the bill is split equally between all parties. Each party receives rights for their company to use the images. Each party is invoiced separately and receives their own set of digital files. The more parties involved, the lower your portion gets!

Can I “gift” the images to my client?

A.Yes, but that requires paying for their portion of the cost-share scenario spelled out above. This would give them the same right to use the images as you have, and I would provide your client with their own set of files. Otherwise, no, as a standard my licensing agreements are single-party usage only.
