Read reviews that mention:
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Pricing is like the elephant in the room, but I take out the guess work. When I send a quote to a client, I'm taking all their needs into consideration. This may mean that I price fluctuates slightly from the online "price list," because each quote is customized to include the things that you and I discuss. I do offer add-on such as print packages and extra time, when the parties not over yet, but for the most part what you see is what you pay. I always want my clients to come to me confident that their needs are being met.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
After connecting through Thumb Tack, my next step is a scheduled phone call. Truthfully, I'm not big on internet conversation. I'm old school in that sense; stuff gets lost in translation. Plus, I want to build a relationship with you. So we'll chat for however long is needed to determine if I'm a good fit. From there, if this is a small project, ie. family pictures, then usually we'll book. However if this is a bigger project, weddings, head shots, event photography, product photography, I usually schedule an in person consultation. This gives us a chance to really nail down our details and concepts. If this meeting goes well, then we set our dates and location.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I'm actually a licensed teacher but never went to the formal classroom. However I use those skills on every shoot to help communicate effectively and manage a set. My photography training came through years of mentoring and hands-on experience. Taking the step to teach photography and merge my two passions actually pushed my skills to the next level. I wanted to always stay ahead of my students, so that I could advance them in any form of photography they sought out. Now several of my students are working along side me in the profession.
