- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
We do our best to offer you the best pricing we can, You are important to us and we want to be your photographers. Occasionally if my wife is available she shoots second camera for me on larger events. So you get extra coverage and no extra cost in those cases. We do not provide RAW images to our clients. Only edited jpg files!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We discuss your project and what your shot list or wish list is for the event. We discuss the event details, date, time, arrival time, parking, etc. When we arrive at your event we will get right to work. We work hard to capture the moments you want and need. We send you a link to the digital files almost immediately after event, and begin adding them so you can review, once we have completed edits we notify we are done so you can download the whole folder. This allows you start looking at the shots usually starting hours after the event ends.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have photographed since I was 11 years old. My father was an amateur photographer, and he taught me the basics, and then hooked me up with the Air Force base photographer to go out on Saturdays to take pictures for the Air Force base we were stationed at. I learned a lot, but over time it fell by the wayside and I didnt pick up my camera much at all for years and years. Then with the advent of Digital Photography I found that I could put my photography to work for me. I was a senior graphic artist for a State Agency in Austin and had developed a knack for photography in my computer graphics. Over time I shot items that we used in artwork for the agency. After leaving I joined an Engineering firm as a Sr. Graphic Artist and photographer, which morphed into that an event photographer. I have over 27 years of graphic arts and photography experience, and I have taught my wife who is in many respects is better than I am at framing shots and capturing fun moments. We also have over 15 years of event photography, from SXSW and Austin Charity Events. To Golf Tournaments, and sporting events. We have covered it all. We also have a thriving Landscape photography print business.
