- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
My packages vary and are included on my website. I have payment plans and its also payable via cash, bank cashiers check, or credit card. All packages are customizable and I often have special promotional. My rates are configured to my 2015 Budget for my CODB (Cost of doing Business) which includes cost of living expenses. Cost of doing business includes my time, equipment insurance, storage (hard drives to save and backup your photos), transportation costs, and any cost to hire an assistant and hairstylist/makeup artist(s). I feel that I have to put this because some people just think all I have to do is take pictures... um no.. If you want professional photos you hire a professional photographer... otherwise, use your camera phone.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am a photojournalist. I go to all the expos and conferences, i have a degree in Broadcasting and Film minor, over 18+ years of experience in photography with classes and workshops, and I also teach photography and fashion modeling. I am mentored by some of the countries best photographers, and mentor photographers as well. I network with professionals in cinematography and video, which enhance my photography skills and talent.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
People. Life. Death. Those special moments that people can't only preserve through a photograph. Life is so short. And the beginning is so beautiful and when we are gone, its important to leave those treasured memories behind. That is why I'm a photographer. Its the love for people.
