I have a question about:

WHAT TO WEAR

After determining what style of photoshoot suits you best we can discuss what clothes will enhance that look.  Without being matchy, matchy, stifled and without spending a fortune, I can advise on what would best suit you (and your family or group's) personality, the location, time of day and the style of shoot.    Of course, tips of what looks great, what colours go well together come can be added in.  You've probably got some great ideas already, I'm happy to discuss those and work with them.   Oh, and if you are concerned about how to stand and pose, don't be, I'll guide you and by the end you'll be a pro!

WEATHER CONCERNS

Cloudy skies and sun showers are workable and can often add to a shoot, in most cases we will proceed with our photoshoot, improvisation is my middle name, however torrential rain and thunderstorms are simply unsafe.  With outdoor shoots we will communicate and confirm prior to the event with the aim of proceeding. if at all possible.  Reschedules are second preference as I value your time as well as my own.

CAN I PRINT MY IMAGES MYSELF?

Of course you can, you can download from the online gallery I send and print from there…. HOWEVER, I can not guarantee the quality and colour of prints done by budget printers, sometimes they can be totally off from the digital image, AND, to be honest, often DIY printing, matting and framing becomes an unfinished, nagging task for you. I use quality printers who are calibrated to my editing software. As a professional photographer, I also have access to quality prints, matts and frames sourced locally and overseas at reasonable prices so I can help you complete your Essential Art project in no time.

DO WE NEED A CONTRACT - ALL THE WRITTEN NOTES - Client/Photographer Agreement

Great service and meeting expectations are really important to me.  For each package I have a standard photography session contract which defines what you can expect from me and what, as a client, I'd request from you.  For example, how we navigate the unforeseeable need to cancel the session and payment, timelines for delivery of goods are also in our contract notes.  While this is really important I promise to keep the contract process simple by sending you a tailored contract via email upon booking which you can read thoroughly and sign electronically. I'll walk you through it also as I know these things are easy to skip over due to busyness, and there won’t be anything hidden in there.

WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO BEFORE THE SHOOT?

Great question, so glad you are asking. Once we’ve confirmed a date and have chatted about what you want to achieve I can send further info, suggestions on what to wear and what to bring along, how to prep the family/other participants and a checklist of optional extras easily forgotten, such as snacks and insect repellent. I’m renown for bringing along a Mary Poppins style bag full of emergency and non-emergency supplies.

HOW DO YOUR PRICES COMPARE?

We don’t all have an unlimited budget, I hear you. I’m sure you have looked around to get an idea and found that not all photographers state their prices first up, if you’re comparing, my prices are slightly below middle range. I believe it’s important that you know those details, as well as what value and service you receive in the packages which goes beyond the moments in front of the camera. Just a reminder that once the package is delivered you have the option to print, matt and frame with me using quality printers and framers. Some clients have cleverly split a package and then shared the cost, great idea! I’m happy to accomodate if I’m able to work directly with one contact/payment person.

HOW DO WE PAY?

Online works best, I have credit card processing and bank transfer options available. Once we have agreed upon a date I’ll forward you a Client/Photographer Agreement and invoice for the session retainer. Your session is fully confirmed once payment and signed contract are returned (these can both be done online). As standard arrangement, the remainder (full) payment must be made 3 days prior to the session date. Feel free to talk to me about this if you have any questions.

ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS?

I'm more than happy to answer them, please contact me here
