HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE?
I would say my approach to photography is little bit photojournalistic, a little bit lifestyle, a little bit candid, and a lot of fun. My aim is to produce photographic images that are natural, relaxed and, as much as possible, reflective of the relationship between the people involved.
I strive to present all my subjects with an honest, captivating moment in time that they will treasure for life.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I am currently located *just* north of Melbourne, but happily book weddings and portrait sessions all over the Melbourne metro area, as well as surrounding areas such as Gisborne, Macedon, Daylesford, Mornington Peninsula and Geelong.
As well as shooting locally I am also available for interstate and international destinations. If you are having a destination wedding, or are looking overseas for a wedding photographer I’d love to hear from you. Really.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE?
Portrait session fees start at $80
Prints start at $40, Canvases at $240, Albums and Digital Collections at $850.
Wedding Photography packages start at $3200.
Please contact me if you would like more detailed information.
WHAT GEAR DO YOU USE?
I grew up with Pentax and Nikon (gasp) but currently use the Canon 5DIII and a varied collection of lenses.
WHERE WILL OUR PORTRAIT SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Where ever you want it to. Within reason, of course, but I’m always open to interstate and overseas sessions. Especially if you live in Hawaii, or any one of the Pacific Islands. But, generally, I come to you wherever the moment has you.
For newborns it’s normally at home, where everyone feels relaxed and comfortable. I do have a studio set up for newborns, babies and young children (to crawling age) if you would prefer to come to me. For everything else I either come to your place, or a location that’s mutually agreeable.
DO YOU HAVE A CURRENT WORKING WITH CHILDRENS CHECK?
WHEN WILL OUR PHOTOS BE READY?
Weddings – A preview slideshow of your day will be ready within the first week. The remainder of the moments will be processed and ready for delivery in four weeks. Album design and delivery depends on how eager you are to jump into it.
From completion of design to delivery takes four weeks.
Portrait Sessions – your proofs will be ready to view within 7 days of your session.
Once you have placed your order your wall prints will be ready within 2 weeks. Your fine art canvas prints are ready between 2-3 weeks, and session albums 4 weeks.
DO YOU SHOOT FILM OR DIGITAL
CAN I PURCHASE THE DIGITAL FILES?
Yes. I do offer a number of packages with digital files included. I do not offer them for sale on an individual basis though, unless there is a minimum spend. Please contact me for more information if required.
DO YOU DO ANY RETOUCHING TO THE IMAGES?
I will do basic re-touching as I edit your proofs, removing bruises, scratches, blemishes etc (basically anything that would otherwise have disappeared within a week or two anyway). This is included in your session fee. I will also do more extensive editing such as head swaps and digital weight loss (*insert wink*) if requested. There may be an additional charge for these options depending on the extent of the work involved. This will be decided on an individual basis.
CAN I POST MY PHOTOGRAPHS ONLINE (ON FACEBOOK etc)?
Yes, but only if it is a web-sized image that I that I have provided you with. If you purchase any of your digital negatives you will receive these along with your full-sized high resolution files. You are also free to tag yourself in any images that are published on my facebook business page.
Please feel free to email and ask anything you like. I’ll do my best to answer.
