HOW DO I MAKE A BOOKING?

Easy peasy.  Go to the "Contact" tab.

Fill in your details and as much information about the type of shoot you are interested in.  

I will then reply with a package options, a quote and a booking form.

If you accept the quote, a 50% non-refundable deposit is payable to hold the date of your choosing.  I then send you a few documents like a contract, model release forms etc.

Alternatively, please contact me via Whatsapp, text or simply just ring me up and discuss your preferred shoot personally. 

My number is +27 82 392 7058

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE OF PHOTOGRAPHY?

I have a documentary/story-telling style. 

I love my 70-200mm lens which allows me to move further away from you, while you and your partner, baby and/or family engage with each other without me pocking a lens in your face and you end up looking like a deer in headlights.  

Although I try and steer clear of it, there is bound to be a few set poses.  That is just to get everyone that turned up for the shoot, looking sharp and clear.  Relax, I will not have you pretend to catch butterflies.

Is travel and accommodation included in your packages?

Nope, unfortunately not.  

If your shoot takes place outside a radius of 25km from Wellington, travel will be charged at R6.50/km.

If it takes me longer than an hour's drive home, and your shoot continues way into the night or starts before the crack of dawn, reasonable overnight accommodation will be charged at cost.

CAN YOU PHOTOSHOP ME WEIGHING 10KGS LESS?

The simple answer is, no. 

Although I edit every image you get back, it is not my job to make you loose weight.  But rest assured, there is a few simple tricks photographers apply to make you look your best on the day, like shooting from above or even making you lean forward :)

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?

At the moment I shoot with two Full Frame Canon bodies, and have a few professional lenses that I bring along.  My go-to lenses are 24-70mm and my favorite 70-200mm. 

HOW LONG BEFORE I GET MY IMAGES?

For Family, Couple/Engagement etc, it will take anything between 1 - 3 weeks.  Normally after about a week, I will put up a sneak-peak, the rest follows soon after.  

For Weddings, it will take anything between 3 - 6 weeks.  Sneak-peak after 2 weeks.

For printing allow extra time as it all depends on 3rd party vendors, but I will keep you updated on the progress.

CAN YOU SEND ME THE RAW FILES?

The simple answer is, no. 

Once the images are ready, I deliver them to you in two JPEG formats.  Low resolution for social media sharing, and high resolution for printing purposes.  If you try and edit a JPEG image, it will loose quality, resulting in pixalation.

You chose me as your photographer because you like my style of photography.  I take it very personal if you are going to try and edit my images after I've delivered them to you.

You are welcome to discuss any preferences with me before the shoot.

I FORGOT TO SHAVE MY BEARD, CAN YOU SHAVE IT FOR ME IN PHOTOSHOP?

Of course I can.

As it is something that could have been avoided, it would incur an additional cost of R850/hour.

I would suggest to set a reminder to shave before the shoot.

I’M WORKING ON A BUDGET, CAN I GET A DISCOUNT?

Sho, tricky one.  I want to say no, but I'm not unreasonable either.  Times are tough, I get it, so this is what I can do for you.  

My family packages start from R2950.  That's the package with all the bells and whistles, and I offer payment options over two months...however, I have mini family shoots of R1800, that is "trimmed" of all the fat.  (See Investment page).

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any budget related queries and I am sure we can work out something that would work for both of us.
