A COLLECTION OF COMMON QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
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...
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!
Commercial: Generally I'm booked out 2-3 weeks in advance and I can take a week or two to deliver your final digital images, so the best way to find out when to book is to ask yourself when do you need your images ready.
Weddings: I take only a limited number of weddings per year, as soon as you know your date get in touch.
*HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE THE PHOTOS
Commercial: 1 to 3 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" 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 , so the number of photos you will receive depends on: how comfortable the models are in front of the camera, the number of subjects being photographed, hours of coverage, etc.
*HOW DO YOU SEND ME THE IMAGES?
Commercial: Pre-edited images will be sent to you in an online gallery, you select your favourites to be finalised and I will Dropbox them to you in full size. 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.
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 for the time frame we agree, as much as you'd like! I would love if you could credit me @indiatupy when you can. That's huge for me. :)
*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.
**Payment must be made in full to secure your booking.
*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.
I promise to respond ASAP, and I look forward to chatting further!
