Style and Quality Questions
What is your philosophy regarding photography? My philosophy is that a photographer should strive to capture the most natural expressions, color, and beauty in a image. I don’t believe in heavy post processing nor do I believe that images should be forced in terms of how they’re created.
What is your photography style? I’ve always considered myself a lifestyle photographer. I love adventure photography and I love creating imagery that revolves around a natural commercialism and consumerism. I strive to achieve continuity in my works through composition muted earthy colors, moody tonality and natural fluid and seamless expressions from my subjects. I aim to make every image as if you’re looking into a moment.
My venue is dark, would you be able to work in low light settings? I am able to work in low light settings by utilizing my speedlight (an external on camera flash).
What type of camera and equipment do you use? I am currently using a Canon 5D Mark IV along with a wide variety of Canon Lenses. I will however rent equipment based on the needs of each job.
Do you have a backup camera? Yes! My backup camera is a Canon 5D Mark II
Post Production Questions
Do you touch up, edit or photoshop all of the images you give to your clients? All of the images I deliver are processed and stylized according to my own style.
What do you mean by "Processing" the images? In order for the image to be delivered, it must go through a process which includes exposure adjustments, color correction, minor touchup correction, resizing etc.
What constitutes as a minor touchup? A minor touchup would be something like removing a blemish or two on someones face or removing something such as a obvious piece of lint on someones shirt.
Business Insurance and Image backup questions
Do you backup our images? How can you insure that our images wont be lost? Your images are cataloged and backed up on a hard drive immediately preceding the session. They're then backed up again and stored in a fireproof safe within a vault. The finalized images from the session are also stored in the cloud, ensuring that there are 3 copies of your images at all times. This ensures that your images will never be lost and that they can be retrieved for you at anytime in the event you need the files again.
Do you have liability insurance?
