- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
By investing in me, you are financially helping me to upkeep my equipment, data storage units, editing applications and my livelihood. My session pricing includes the hours capturing, hours editing, the cost of a flash drive (if applicable) and the cost of hiring a second photographer (if applicable). What is not included is a travel fee. I charge government rate (58 cents) per mile when I travel to a venue further than 60 miles from my current location.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
When I encounter a new (or potentially new) client, I love to meet in coffee or chat over the phone! I believe communication is key to a good relationship and a successful business. My number goal is to satisfy the client through the appreciation of my work. By communicating the job and interests initially, it begins a strong relationship and makes the job, day of, editing process and return of the images that much smoother.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a bachelor's degree in Photojournalism with a concentration in Digital Media and Peace Studies. I traveled to the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics to capture the culture and life of Brazil. In 2018-19, I filmed a short documentary which has gone on to win national awards. I have also attended a variety of conferences and workshops hosted by the National Press Photographer's Association across the nation.
