What to expect when working with me - start to finish
To help you decide if I’m the right photographer for you here I lay out exactly what it’s like to work with me. This process is scalable depending on the size of your job. But the basic principles are always applied. Everything from briefs, the shoot, post production, image delivery and feedback. Sorry in advance for all the underwear references.
Taking Briefs (ideas, not your underwear)
I get to know what the story is of your business – what you do, who your clients are, what your priorities are. I ask a stack of questions about the images you want, the goals you’re trying to achieve by taking them, your rough ideas, what you’d like to use the images for, your budget and any timeframes. I then put all this together in a basic plan for the shoot.
The Reverse Brief (Like Superman, who wears his on the outside)
I present my ideas for your shoot and reality check everything I’ve heard to make sure I’m on track. This gives you the chance to see if I’ve understood what you’re after and it gives us a chance to make changes before the shooting begins.
The Formal Bits
If my understanding of the job is spot on I’ll prepare a quote and a simple to read contract. The contract helps us both to know who will do what, when. It’s not a one sided deal – all my responsibilities to you are laid out for me to sign as well. If you’re happy with the quote and the contract then we progress to the shoot.
This is where I unleash my ninja photography skills of creativity, ingenuity, insight, confidence, and technical capability to breathe life into the brief. Things don’t always go to plan so I’m flexible but always have the master plan in mind to ensure the job gets done.
You wouldn’t leave the house without clothes on would you? You WOULD? Wow, well I’m a little more modest and like me my images get ‘dressed’ before they go out into the world. Every image I give to you receives all-star treatment first to make them really shine.
I deliver the images in the format you choose. On time. End of Story.
I can’t improve my service without your feedback. So I’ll check in at all stages of the job to make sure we’re all happy campers. If there are unhappy campers I’ll find out who put the snake in your tent and beat them.
