WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Dallas, Texas. I do travel from time-to-time and incorporate shoots in the city that I'm visiting. The best way to find out about my whereabouts is via Twitter or Facebook, both of which have links on my homepage. I move around the Dallas/Ft. Worth area so chances are, I can accommodate you. However, there may be a charge for mileage if I find that your desired location is outside the DFW.
WHAT DO YOU CHARGE?
Each shoot is different. I customize my prices based on the client's vision. I do have set prices for certain portrait shoots, event coverage, etc. Please email me for more information.
WHAT ARE YOUR CANCELLATION TERMS?
Due to cancellations in the past, I must receive your deposit (determined on the provided invoice) to book your shoot. If a client cancels less than 24 hours prior to the shoot time, I will not be able to refund the deposit. Deposits will never be over 50% of the total price.
WHAT IF WE GET RAINED OUT?
In the case of rain or inclement weather, I will always reschedule the session without any additional charges.
DO YOU SHOOT WEDDINGS?
Yes! Each wedding is a unique opportunity to help a couple remember their special day forever.
DO YOU SHOOT VIDEO?
Not at this time. However, I can recommend some great videographers.
WHAT IS YOUR TURNAROUND TIME?
Generally, it is very quick and within 7 to 14 days. Paying clients get priority over my personal shoots and projects. If you specify that you need the photos by a certain date/time, I will have them ready.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
I have a studio that I use in Deep Ellum. If a client's concept requires studio time, there will be additional charges.
DO YOU SHOOT RISKY CONCEPTS?
It depends. Send me an email with the idea and I will be able to tell you. I likely won't turn you down if your idea is tasteful and professional and I do love my fair share of horror and fake blood! I do not shoot any XXX concepts or models.
WHAT TIME OF DAY DO YOU SHOOT PORTRAITS?
I like to try and schedule my portrait sessions during the golden hours of the day: right after sunrise or about two hours before sunset. This eliminates those harsh shadows on the face from the sun being directly overhead. Plus, you won't be squinting your eyes!
DO YOU CHARGE FOR PORTFOLIO WORK FOR ASPIRING MODELS?
Yes. If you are an aspiring model and not currently signed to an agency I must charge you for portfolio additions. I am currently adding new models to my database to use for my original concepts so email me if you're interested!
WHAT KINDS OF CONCEPTS DO YOU SHOOT?
I'm very open to awesome ideas, the weirder, the better!
DO YOU PROVIDE HAIR AND MAKEUP?
Not personally, but I have a network of hair stylists and makeup artists that you can book for an additional charge.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN I CHANGE OUTFITS?
As many times as you want! However, if we're on a time crunch you'll need to do it quickly.
CAN I POST THE PHOTOS FROM MY SESSION ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
Absolutely! In fact, I encourage it. I deliver the photos from each session in two batches: one with my watermark and one without. The client must only post photos on social media with my watermark, as specified in the client agreement. The set without my watermark is ONLY for the client to have printed or submit to an agency.
DO I HAVE TO CREDIT YOU AS THE PHOTOGRAPHER ON SOCIAL MEDIA?
I always ask my clients to tag me or mention me if they post the photos from our session to social media because it helps me grow my network as a photographer. So crediting me is greatly appreciated!
WHAT ABOUT MODEL RELEASES?
Every model I work with must sign a model release. This document contains everything you need to know about the shoot, and who is responsible for what. This is just to protect everyone involved legally.
