1. WHAT IS YOUR TYPICAL PROCESS FOR WORKING WITH A NEW CUSTOMER?

A great result is a collaboration between photographer/web designer and subject/client. It’s all about making you feel comfortable, so everything feels natural. Not everyone is a model and knows how to pose. That’s where I come in. I’ll help guide you to feel as natural as possible, so you have the best overall outcome!

2. WHAT EDUCATION AND/OR TRAINING DO YOU HAVE THAT RELATES TO YOUR WORK?

I have training in Photography and Web Design courses dating back to High School. I was able to develop my own photos in a dark room working with film and chemicals. If you don’t know what a dark room is and what it’s like using film and chemicals, then god bless you. Thank the lord for Digital Cameras and DSLR’s today!

Not only this, but I am a constant self-learner and tutorial and video watcher. Things change so rapidly in my industry that it’s either you change with the times, or you get left behind.

3. HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY & WEB DESIGN SERVICES?

This is a common question I receive all the time, “How much do you charge?” But it’s not an easy question to answer, because one price is not for everyone. When you contact me we’ll discuss your needs, talk about the direction of the final product, locations, scenes, styling, photo usage and licensing needs. We’ll cover any challenges that may arise during the shoot or design and plan for those challenges. And overcome them.

My job is to bring your vision to life!

4. WHAT TYPES OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

Most of my sales are conducted through PayPal, so you know you are covered through an easy, safe transaction. PayPal is one of the most common forms of payment in the world, and even eBay uses it as its form of payment.

PayPal covers any costs if you deem a purchase fraud, so feel safe with any purchase you make with PayPal!

I also accept Cash, Checks and Credit Cards (via PayPal Here Credit Card Reader) via Mobile device.

5. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED DOING THIS TYPE OF WORK?

My passion is Photography. My history is Web & Graphic Design. When it comes to finding the right things to capture, I jump on the opportunity. When I bought my first DSLR, I fell in love instantly. Trying to mimic what some of my favorite Photographers have been doing for decades. I then researched anything I could get my hands on when it came to sharpening my skills. Whether it be watching Jared Polin (FroKnowsPhoto) YouTube videos or reading guides and tutorials. I’m hooked. And I love what I do.

You as a customer need your expectations met, and exceeded by whomever you hire for whatever type of job you need accomplished. And most of all, you need to be comfortable with your Photographer/Web Designer. So why let just anyone capture the moments you need that are going to last forever?

You shouldn’t. Explore my site and please contact me today!

2. WHAT IS YOUR PHOTO EDITING PROCESS LIKE? DO YOU "TOUCH UP" YOUR PHOTOS?

Editing pictures is an art form. Anyone can adjust brightness and contrast. But not everyone knows the ins and outs of Adobe Lightroom like I do. Here are a few tools I use in my editing process, if necessary:

  • Color vs. Black & White
  • Exposure Correction
  • Contrast
  • Compare Presets
  • Tone Curving
  • Cropping
  • Spot Removal
  • Clarity
  • Split Toning

3. HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GO THROUGH A PHOTO SHOOT?

This all depends on the type of photos you are looking for. If you are looking for Portraits, it could take anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. It really all depends on what you expect to see in the final product.

If you’re looking for Candid Portraits, such as pictures of a band, working your craft or hobby, or an event, this could also take several hours.
