Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
My prices are a starting point for the brief you give. I am flexible with any other surplus requests. Just ask me before or during the session.
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
I always ask what the client expects from the session. What will the final images be used for. This way I can direct the mood of the shoot so the client will be happy.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
Clear communication skills. I have photographed a wide array of personalities in my 15 year career. Before that I assisted portrait photographers working with celebrities for magazines and business for B2B brochures.
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Look at the 'style' of the photographer's folio. Ask to see more work if appropriate. Is the technique / lighting / retouching professional?
What questions should customers have ready before speaking to pros about their project?
If the customer has any reference images to express the mood they would like to achieve, then ask to show them before the session.
How did you first get into this line of work?
I assisted many photographers on a freelance basis. They had a wide range of clients. I learnt how to deal with and find solutions to various situations.
