Commercial, or what I like to refer to as "Personal Branding Photography", is billed in two parts. First, photo coverage is billed hourly - projects begin with a minimum of 2 hours coverage. Retainer services for Annual, Bi-Annual, and Quarterly are also available for higher volume and best value.

An online proofing gallery is provided for your selection process. Digital files are available for purchase in both High Resolution and Low Resolution formats. Your private gallery is made available for immediate purchases as well as for future purchases.

HEADSHOTS • TEAM PHOTOS

Corporate photography encompasses professional headshots, corporate portraiture, and team groupings. Mini headshot sittings for your entire team (usually on a backdrop), as well as team portraits, are very affordable and give your team an incredible first impression. Each "sitting" or "grouping" includes one final retouched portrait in digital format.

An online proofing gallery is provided for your selection process. Final selections are provided in both High Resolution and Low Resolution formats.

Anyone can take a picture these days... nearly everyone has a decent camera, or at the least, a camera phone. But there is a difference... let me tell you why.

When words fail to tell your story, a professional can artistically compose a stunning image with intent, balance, and design in mind.

When the conditions are challenging, a professional has the technical ability, speed, and accuracy to light and time their compositions. 

To create a superb photograph, a professional photographer knows where to go for great backgrounds and what time of the day to go there for the most flattering light. A professional understands complicated camera functions, exposure settings, and how to best use their camera accessories and off camera lighting. And in those fleeting moments when the light is just right, and the expression or pose is angled just perfectly, a professional must have the eye to compose and the quick reflexes to get the shot. A professional enhances the photographs using professional photo editing software. Often there is so much to this craft that is overlooked because our market has over-saturated in the digital age. But it's the details in photography that are truly important... the stages before, during and after your photo shoot are all critical to the final product.

Yes, yes, yes!

To book a date for your photo session, I require a signed contract and a non-refundable date reservation fee.

When a session is cancelled because a client changed their mind, I likely do not have the time to book another session for your date+time. When a session is booked, I block off that date and time slot, often times the whole date is reserved just for that particular client. This means a cancellation results in a significant loss of income.

If you need to postpone or reschedule your session, please let me know as soon as possible and we will arrange alternative plans. Often times we can work it out without the need for an additional date reservation fee.

Due to the unpredictability of outdoor conditions, weather related cancellations are an exception. If your session is outdoors and we have to postpone due to poor weather, we will coordinate a new date for your session and your date reservation fee will roll-over to the new date.

After signing your contract, you can make a payment via check, credit card, or a secure EFT bank transfer via my CRM portal. Following your session, products can be purchased via credit card.

YES. In most instances, a convenient phone consultation will suffice.

Yes. Some base packages include a certain amount of travel. In cases where the distance exceeds the included travel, additional fees may apply. And I've flown as far as Miami, FL for work, so don't be shy to ask!

Absolutely! Most photographers, even myself, post our best work, our favorite work, and/or our most recent work. But I also understand that it's important for clients to see consistency. I would be happy to share full bodies of work so that you have a clear picture of what to expect. Just ask!

PHOTO SESSION QUESTIONS

The last thing I want is for you to be stressed. We also don’t want to jump right in and get to work. Give yourself a little extra time – maybe 15 or 20 minutes, to make sure you are early, padding for traffic delays, and we can chat a little and lay out any wardrobe changes or props that you want to work with... all while getting to know each other. If you anticipate being more than 15 minutes late, please call to ensure we will still have time for your full session. If you are late I cannot guarantee availability for the full session time.

The only bad day to a photographer is a rainy day! Cloudy or overcast lighting is excellent for photography, so do not be dismayed if you wake up to a gray sky. Diffused light from gray and cloudy skies lays beautifully over the curvature of the face and body, reducing or eliminating harsh shadows. And, you can mimic sunlight on cloudy days too so it's the ULTIMATE flexible lighting condition.

A beautiful sunny day has it's benefits too – warm sunlight on the right angles can create beautiful glowing effects, and it also heightens the vibrancy of colors.

If we find the weather is bad or questionable, we will discuss rescheduling. And no worries about your date reservation fee – it will be carried over to your rescheduled session date.

At this time, most sessions are held on location. In my arsenal of gear, I have a pop-up studio / travel studio so that we can come to you.

First, it's important to discuss your location limitations with your photographer (especially if a permit will be required). A questionable location may warrant a pre-shoot site visit. If there isn't enough natural light, we will plan to bring studio gear. And if there is no electricity, we will plan to bring battery packs for the studio lights or we can use off-camera flash.

My main camera is a Canon 5D Mark IV, and I do carry a back-up. My favorite lenses to shoot with are my Canon 50mm F1.2, Canon 100mm F/2.8, and my Sigma Art 35mm F1.4. My lighting gear brand is Alienbee. And I keep a ba-zillion accessories and light modifiers to get your shots just right!

In addition to CommercialCorporate, and Consumer focused photographic work, I also service clients that need Product Photography, Food Photography, Real Estate Photography, Editorial Photography (magazines & other publications), and Event Photography.
