I have a traveling fee for distances over 50 miles.
I typically start off by getting some basic info from a client. (e.g. What they are looking for from the photos, any ideas or inspirations of locations, if they have a special mile marker coming up) Also, I have a short questionnaire that I send to my clients, which helps me learn a little more. It’s a great way to get to know each other and has proven to spark come creative ideas!
I recently passed my Certified Professional Photographer exam! Also, I love watching videos and reading about any new ideas for photography. I’m a sucker for practicing something a lot until I learn it. The most random things have been used at home to practice with!
