A bit about me
I'm a full time professional photographer with over 30 years portrait experience. Alternatively I work mobile and take the studio equipment where it's needed either on location outdoors ( with battery packs) or to a client's premises. My style of personal work is different from the normal Nuts magazine images so common today, however; I sometimes get asked to do that for work and I'm happy to do that for clients. My personal preference is for something that will stimulate me artistically and creatively. I have a passion for the images of the 1930's to 1950's and often seek to recreate this lighting for personal projects. Do I use flat lighting ?? two soft boxes fired to knock out all shadow detail? Never! I can't abide that look. Light is to highlight and shadow is for depth in an image. After all photography means painting with light.
I occasionally do TFCD work, so if you're interested; I need to know time, day, type of shoot, duration and most importantly what ideas you have. Think what you are proposing first, so we don't get into tedious email ping pong as this wastes my time and yours. For TFCD I usually supply between 20 and 40 ( depending on the length of shoot) high quality images that are print ready as well as web prepared images if wanted. Yes this is generous, I appreciate peoples time and effort.
I take great care with post production of images, I don't subscribe to the make every woman look like a plastic doll idea. I understand there has been a fashion for this in recent years, but it is well past it's sell by date now. I take care to edit small areas that need a little help, but you will still look human rather than plastic. Does this take time? yes it does!! usually two whole working days after a shoot, but you would still get your images in a week. Good? you bet it is. I don't drop my standards because work is on a TF basis.
Travelling expenses: if your getting three days work from me ( one shooting day and two editing) why do you think you're entitled to travelling expenses; also the investment in time and money to set up a studio is not insignificant and time I spend on TFCD is not earning income.
Copyright always stays with me, unless you have commissioned and paid for my time, then I will assign the copyright over to you for an appropriate fee. All work you publish (taken by myself) on web sites for your own publicity must be credited to the photographer and studio. Any unauthorised editing or manipulation of the image will be a copyright infringement. Any commercial use of images must be by prior arrangement.
If you just want a new portfolio or your portfolio updated and you are the only one who is likely to benefit, then ask for my rates. They are reasonable and if I'm interested in a project may be negotiable on rate or even TFCD.
