My style of photography is often called photo-journalistic or documentary. What does that mean? It means I don’t run around posing everyone, instead I become part of your day, part of what’s going on, a quiet observer of things. I capture the real, the unposed, the natural. I know that your life is bigger than a one dimensional moment and it’s up to me to capture a splice of the bigger picture and make sense of it. All the love, the tears and the joy. All the unguarded moments.
Yes. A 50% deposit will secure your date. All deposits are non-refundable, but where possible I am happy to reschedule.
Full payment is required prior to your photo date.
An on location photo shoot simply means, I work in the real world, not in a studio. I will travel to your home or your favorite place. The world is your oyster, so take me to your favorite place – if it’s the Alps that’s where we’ll go, if it’s a remote island in the Carribean that’s where we’ll go. That’s what on location means.
All my photo packages include a free travel zone in the fixed fee. However, if your favorite location is outside the free travel zone for your selected package, for example, you want to travel to NSW or NYC, the location is classified as non- local and it will incur additional travel fees, like airfares, accommodation etc. We can discuss this when you get in touch
Yes, there is a 20% surcharge on all packages.
Of course I will. Important note: – Remember to allow travel time between each location when you are planning your day and considering how many hours you will require me.
It varies depending on your package – but you will receive every image that has passed the Lisa test. That means it has been edited, it demonstrates my style and is up to my exacting professional standard. (Please note – while you will not receive all the images – you will receive the best ). As an indication: 4 hour Wedding – approx 80 digital images. Full day Wedding – approx 160 digital images. Family portrait – approx 20 digital images.
You will receive your fully edited, professionally finished digital images via a personal Dropbox link. The digital files will be in both high-resolution, suitable for printing enlargements and low-resolution, suitable for social media use.
Portrait sittings: within 7 – 10 days
Weddings: within 14 – 21 days
Please note all outdoor sessions must take place within 2 hours of sunset. Think… Search light VS Candle light.
Early morning or late afternoon is best. The light at this time is your friend. Avoid harsh mid-day sun… it is not your friend.
If you’re going to book a Videographer make sure they’re nice. We’ll both be vying for the best shot, so a videographer that knows how to share is a good choice. Choosing the “nice videographer and nice photographer” combo ensures you’ll end up with a great video and photo story.
Yes I can, but printing the enlargements yourself will save you a bucket load of cash. My rates will depend on what size you require, the paper stock you use and will also include a fee for my time.
Yes I can, but with so many online album services available, why not print your own album and save yourself a bucket load of cash. My rates for albums will depend on the size of album you require, the paper stock you choose, and other variables, including a fee for my time.
Definitely! If we’re going to be spending time together, we need to like each other. A catch up over a wee beverage and we’ll soon know if we’re made for each other.
Copyright in the photographs remains with the photographer aka me. You can use the photos on social media and you can print as many as you need for personal, non-commercial use. All the legalities are covered in my booking form. Use of images for commercial purposes will incur licensing fees.
