- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Custom pricing based on the specifics of each project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Typically, I will gather as much information as I can from email requests and follow-up phone calls to produce and accurate brief for the project. If necessary, we can meet either at my studio or a location of your choice. Once I am comfortable that I understand your needs I will produce a quote and present it with my recommendations for achieving the best outcome for you.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Orginally from Toronto, Canada,I have over twenty years of photographic and filmmaking experience. It is a family business as both my father and brother have enjoyed successful careers as cinematographers, I have worked with almost every big-name national advertising agency in North America and have worn numerous awards, including Art Director's Club, Marketing Awards, Bessie awards 9The Canadian version of the CLIO's) and others. In 1992 I won the Gold Bessie for the best TV commercial in Canada and in 1996 I won a First Cut award as one of the top 5 new directors in Canada. I have recently moved to Sarasota with my wife and two small children and have invested in a state of the art studio and am looking to use my experience to build a commercial photography clientele here.
