What questions should a customer ask to hire the right service professional?
What services are included in a photographic package? How many hours of coverage, do I need? (Yes, I can explain to you the ideal number of hours, you'll need) Where can I see your portfolio?
What do you like most about your job?
Producing stunning and beautiful images. Working with many, different people. Learning new things about my craft everyday. Dealing with unique situations.
How did you decide to get into your line of work?
Six years ago, I purchased my first manual camera, and started photographing my little niece and nephew. Then I moved onto my own daughter (the namesake of my company). I slid into family photography at first, before my doing my first wedding, which happened to be that of my cousin.
What experience, skills, qualifications or training do you have to make you the right person for the job?
Photography is an artistic endeavour and as such, there isn't much to qualify one for a job. My images are my qualifications, they are a culmination of my experience and creative skill.
How can a customer save money before you start the work? Please give 3 tips
Be realistic about your budget. A photographer's time is more than just shooting behind the camera. The post processing effort takes just as long, out of the thousands of images I take on a wedding day, I will only retouch a few hundred (depending on hours of coverage). Generally, the longer the hours involved in a shoot the cheaper it will be. I don't take any shortcuts. I will give 100% of my effort, for the full duration of the time you hire me.
What questions do customers commonly ask and how would you answer them?
Can I travel? Although I'm Sydney based, I can travel to any destination you require. Any additional travel costs will be included in your quote. Feel free to discuss your brief with me.
