How many images will I receive?
A very good question and it depends on the subject and the type of shoot. It is always a question that should be asked and we’ll agree on this prior to the shoot.
How will I get my images after the shoot?
Proof images for you to make your final image selections from will be uploaded to a website and you’ll be sent a hidden link known only to you.
What happens if we don’t like the photos?
Thankfully not something that happens often. When on a shoot I will give my clients previews of the images on-camera, so any corrections to the way the images are taken can be made during the shoot.
Do you airbrush your photos?
I have a process that takes the original file to a final finished image. I often make adjustments for colour balance, saturation, contrast, exposure and can even give the skin a more pleasing softer look. When required I do airbrush specks of dust out of an image, but what I do not do, and never will do is do any major airbrushing to slim or make someone look younger. With my work, what you see is what you get.
How long do you keep the files for?
During the selection process I keep three copies of the image files. Once you have made your final image selections and the images have been delivered the files are archived. To date I have yet to loose any client image files, however you should keep your own back ups of your images.
What camera do you use?
I work exclusively with Canon digital SLR equipment. I have several SLR bodies (so there is always a backup camera close by should one fail). For 90% of my work I am shooting with Canon L lens (the best Canon lens you can buy).
Are you a member of any professional associations?
Short answer, no, I’m not. I’ve yet to see the benefits of any.
Where did you get the hat?
Who owns copyright to the images?
It is normal that the photographer keeps copyright on the images. However I always allow my clients to use their final images for any promotional use as they see fit. If however images are to be sold to a magazine or other publication then we’ll discuss as and when required.
