- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
All prices for shoots are custom created so please ask but here is a very rough estimate. Location portrait shoots and business headshots usually come in at $120 Studio shoots with studio lighting are about $160. Weddings range from $500 for a 2 hour off season Wednesday to $2000 for an 8 hour July Saturday. Real Estate varies based on location from $150-250. Food and commercial product work averages $200. Other shoots need to be custom quoted. Please see for more information on what you get and don't get from a shoot. This is very important and these rules will apply to all shoots. Most importantly, if you have any questions, please ask!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My typical process really depends upon project. A lot of my work is in wedding photography and this is the arena which has the most options and requires the most personalisation. If the couple is local the ideal situation is for us to meet for a cup of coffee which comes with no obligation and which I will even buy! At this meeting we would talk over exactly what couple is looking for and decide if we are a good fit. I would then be able to provide a more exact bid. If the couple does not live locally such a meeting could be done over the telephone. The areas of photography that I do is a varied that the process is equally varied. Do, please just get in touch.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Communication from Herriott Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland along with a variety of other trade qualifications. I continually strive to better myself come by reading and working through tutorials online that help me continually improve my post processing skills.
