- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have been a paid professional photographer for many many years and you should be paying at least double what I am charging for my level of experience and talent, but since I am getting back into photography after being a Hollywood and New York movie and television director, you are getting a deep discount at the moment. After I rebuild my portfolio in the digital realm (as opposed to the film realm), my prices will increase dramatically. There are people with my level of experience charging $6,000 a day.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We talk. I make them comfortable. We meet in some locations I choose to make them look their best. I make them laugh and relax. We shoot. I give them an SD Card or transfer the shots to their computer the day of or send them a link to their shots or as soon as possible for them to use their shots. I don't make them wait for months like other photographers. The END.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have had a camera of one type or another in my hands every day taking photos since I was 7 years old and had a darkroom starting when I was 10 years old. I have been editing photos ever since that time. As a child, I practiced "drawing" my camera like a cowboy draws a gun to shoot candids before the "moment" disappeared, typically with a heavy 75-250mm zoom lens shooting on film.
