Ask me anything!

A COLLECTION OF COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

-> MY STYLE: 

My style is bohemian and I absolutely love an old film texture in my images. I also believe that my images should speak loads - about who you are as a person, the feelings I tried to capture in that day; about what your brand reflects.

I strive to create images that tells stories, are genuine and make you want to visit them again and again like that good old Rollings Stones song that you put on repeat... For that I normally use minimal guiding and posing (applying different techniques to give you actions) and will try (not so hard) to make you show your real YOU.  

I am often asked questions involving pricing, timelines for delivery, photo edition and other details. As much as "pricing" shows the starting packages, your final quote may vary according to what you need.

So I've compiled the most-asked questions here for you. I hope you find these answers helpful! But if you still have doubts, ask me anything!

It will be a pleasure to answer and I hope to hear from you soon!

*BOOKINGS: 

Commercial: To answer this question I normally ask: "how urgently do you need your final images?" Generally I'm booked out 3-6 weeks in advance and I can take a few weeks to deliver your final digital images. So the earlier we book the better. The best way to find out when to book is to ask yourself when do you need your images ready.

Weddings: I take only only a limited number of weddings per year and start taking bookings on average 10-12 months in advance, as soon as you know your date get in touch.

*If you have any urgency please let me know and I can try and reorganize my agenda to attend your needs. **Payment must be made in full to secure your booking. 

*HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE PHOTOS?

Commercial: 2 to 4 weeks to deliver your final digital images (depending on each case). 

Weddings: 4 to 6 weeks to deliver your final digital images (prints will take a little longer).

*EDITING X PHOTOSHOP

All images you receive will be edited (color corrected) but they will not be retouched (Photoshoped) as part of your standard photo-shoot pricing.

Anything like getting rid of tattoos, reducing the size of arms, belly, legs, disappearing with cellulite, etc is considered "retouching" and it is NOT INCLUDED as part of your standard photo-shoot pricing.  

However If you require some of your photos to be "retouched" or "photoshopped" just point me the images that need the work done and I can do it for you. There will be an extra cost for retouching.

Don't get me wrong, I love Photoshop! And I'm awesome at it, I can do pretty much anything. But that is a price for fame :) as retouching is a very skilled work and sometimes it can takes hours depending on what you wants. 

*Prices for retouching can vary from $15 to $50 per image depending on how many images and what you want done. 

*HOW MANY PHOTOS WILL I RECEIVE?

I aim to provide you with only the best images. The number of photographs you will receive depends on many things - how comfortable the subjects are in front of the camera, the number of subjects being photographed, hours of coverage, types of events, etc. 

*HOW DO YOU SEND ME THE IMAGES?

Commercial: The images will be sent to you via Dropbox or on a online gallery. It is just easy and practical.

Wedding: You will receive your images in a beautiful online gallery (available for 30 days) + USB flash drive and the selection of prints of the day all nicely packaged.

*DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SHOOTING?

Absolutely. I travel worldwide.

*Travel fees may apply. Travel is billed very simply - if airfare and hotel and rental car are needed, all you are responsible for is a direct reimbursement for the charges.

*IMAGES COPYRIGHT

In Australia photographers own the Full Copyrights of the photography they take. It simply means that when I take a photo I am the creator of the images, (like an artist) and I can use the images I create for commercial and display purposes.
So you cannot sell the images created by me, but you will have the ability to print and share your images on the platforms (internet/outdoor/print), and time frame we agree, as much as you'd like!

*CANCELLATION & RESCHEDULING 

  • Cancellations of anywhere from the booking will require payment of 100% of the chosen package price. 
  • Rescheduling of anywhere from the booking will require payment of 50% of the chosen package price. 

*WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT FORMS ACCEPTED? 

Direct deposit, cash and credit cards.

*DO YOU SUPPLY THE RAW/unedited FILES?

RAW or unedited files are not supplied. Part of my work as a photographer is to edit the RAW files and transform it into art, so I'm not comfortable to give away my canvas.
