- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Think of my pricing more as a ballpark. Every project is different and the pricing will reflect that in a way that balances making amazing photos accessible to everyone. (And keeping my lights on!) My cancellation/rescheduling policy is as follows: Up to 48 hours before the shoot - free rescheduling (subject to availability) or refund minus half of deposit Less than 48 hours to the shoot - $75 rescheduling fee (subject to availability) or refund minus deposit
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Right off the bat, it's important to get to work on the most important details. 1. What kind of photoshoot is right for you? Do you need a quick shoot or an all day event shoot? This plays a major role in determining the cost and number of photos you'll get at the end. 2. Where do you imagine your perfect photos? A beautiful park? A magnificent venue? The top of a mountain? Got ideas? Need ideas? We'll figure out the perfect spot. 3. All that out of the way, let's pick a date and time!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been taking pictures on my family's various cameras since I was a kid, finally getting my first camera way back in 2008! I went to college at University of California Santa Cruz, studying Film and Digital Media. While there I took photos in the beautiful California redwoods and along the beach and cliff dotted coast. As you'd imagine, a lot of people in film school are also into photography, and I learned just as much if not more from adventuring and creating with my peers. The learning process didn't stop there though! I'm constantly trying to up my game and my passion drives me to learn ever more about photography.
