Do you shoot weddings? Families? Newborns? Etc.?
Sadly, I do not. I primarily focus on commercial & editorial portrait work and I find it very important to stick to a specific niche. Going beyond that can be very confusing and a lot of work on myself. I'd be more than happy to give some recommendations though! Shoot me a message!
Why do I need to make a deposit? Can it be refunded?
A 50% deposit secures your shoot time in my calender. If the weather is really bad on your scheduled date or if I get sick, or if anything happens beyond our control, you can either use that deposit for a reschedule or it can be refunded. But if you fail to show up to a shoot or if you cancel less than 48 hours before the shoot, it cannot be refunded. That date could have been used for someone else!
Do you have models for commercial shoots?
I do have a list of models that are available for hire. There is a model fee for each model that you request for your shoot. The model fee is added to your total price.
What kind of rights do I have for the photos?
Commercial Shoots: You have the right to use the photos in any way you need (prints, advertisement, social media, e-commerce, etc.) but you do not have the right to license, sell, lease, or reproduce any of the work to any third-party companies.
Portrait shoots: You may post the images anywhere you like & you must give proper credit to me whether it's in the caption or tagging me, in every photo you post.
What's your turn-around time?
Commercial Shoots: Depending on the size of the job, I can typically get the photos to you within 1-2 weeks of receiving the products or creating the brief outline.
Portrait Shoots: I'll typically have the photos ready for you within a week after our shoot date.
Will you buy props for commercial shoots?
This is something that's up to you. I have a small inventory of props for various scenarios, which we can talk about in our meeting. But if you're wanting something new or specific, we can add an expense budget onto your brief to allow for new props/surfaces. If you have items you'd like to be used as props, I'd love to use what you have and incorporate them!
Can I hire you as a social media influencer?
