My Photography Process

Curious about what it’s like to work with me? Below is my proven process which ensures a seamless experience from start to finish.

#1 The Inquiry Stage

The first step to working with me is to reach out via email or give me a call so we can chat but also so I can learn a little bit more about your project. My main objective with this step is to determine if I will be the right photographer for your project.

#2 The Questionnaire

If we determine I am a good fit for your project, I will send over my detailed questionnaire which is designed to to gather more detials but also help us lay out our plan going forward. Once this is complete, we will schedule your planning call and lock down some dates.

#3 Planning Call

This call is designed to go over the questionaire you submitted but also the game plan I desigened for you which includes the proposed shot list. If everything looks good, i’ll send over the contract, collect your deposit and lock in the day of your session.

#4 Shoot Day

This is where the magic happens! We will work together and go through the shot list we created based on the questionnaire you filled out to create content for your brand.

#5 Select Images

Once your photoshoot is over, i’ll send over an online gallery including all the images from our session so you can hand select the images that you feel best represent your brand and that you want me to retouch.

#6 Deliver Images

Once I am done retouching your selected images, I will send over a download link which will include high-resolution print & web ready JPG files with a commercial license.
