- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My standard rate is $150/ hr. (2 hr minimum), including retouches, as a ballpark figure for all event photography. The portrait packages are higher - since my clients get bigger exports for prints. Since Covid, I have been lenient with travel fees, location changes and give discounts. I like to work with people's budgets and adjust my amount of retouched photos accordingly.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I try to make the process as easy as possible and the client can fill out a form on my website, providing me with information such as: - Date and location - Budget - Retouches required or raw, instant Aircam delivery The 50% deposit can easily be paid through Venmo or Zelle.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm self taught and took lighting workshops to step up my game. Being a filmmaker as well, I got my expertise on framing and momentum on sets. The rest is experience and pushing yourself to get better every day.
