FAQ

Posted on June 10, 2008

What is your style?
I emphasize the techniques of photojournalistic photography. This captures the most memorable moments without being intrusive. There are no strict rules for photojournalism…angles, framing, lights…it is all about the imagination. The only thing that matters is you and capturing those true moments. I encourage you to review my online galleries before scheduling an appointment to ensure I am the right photographer for you.

What is photojournalism?
Photojournalism means to capture the moment as it is. Nothing is staged or posed. There is no prepared shot list. If something is missed, it is gone. Photojournalism is an approach based on telling a story of the day using photographs. The photojournalist’s goal is to take pictures while people are not aware they are being photographed. By blending with the crowd, a photojournalist is able to capture the action as it unfolds – the true emotions, the real expressions, the happiness, tears and joy. Of course if you want some traditional posed family portraits, I will be more than happy accommodate.

Do you shoot with film or digital camera?
I shoot with state of the art Canon digital cameras and lenses.

Why digital?
Digital photographic equipment has significant advantages over film not only in image quality but also in zero reloading time, no processing or scanning, and better shadow details. It also allows more flexibility in the moment.

Do you take credit cards?
Yes, I accept credit cards through PayPal. A 2.9% surcharge is added to all transactions.

How much is it to reserve my event?

A 30% deposit is required to reserve your wedding day. The remainder is due two weeks prior to your wedding or party.

Do you offer black and white or sepia images, as well as color?
Yes, black and white or sepia conversion can be done. Your family and friends will be able to order all three from your private online gallery. The master images are created in color. The lab you choose to have prints made usually can make a black and white print or sepia print that is optimized for their machines.

What kind of quality can I expect from digital photography?
I use very high quality equipment, and your images are stored on archival quality CDs. This type of storage ensures that the images can be printed and last fifty or more years – just like traditional film prints.

What’s the largest print I can have made from a digital photo?
The equipment I use produces high-resolution images that can easily be enlarged to 20″x30″ without any loss of quality.

When does my time start?

I will arrive 15-45 minutes early to scout the location and get settled in with your family and friends. Your package time begins at the time we arrange photography to begin.

When do I get to see my images?
Your get online gallery will be posted within 30 days of your wedding.

Do you do any retouching?
Yes, all images are color corrected if necessary. Minor retouching will also be done if necessary. If you want more intense retouching, there is a fee for each image. All images chosen for albums are fully retouched.

Do you offer proofs?
Yes, I can print an entire set of 4×6 proof prints (up to 400 images) for $250.

How many images do you create for events?
On average 30-40 images per hour.

Do you do engagement sessions?
Yes. Engagement sessions are $250 and include all of your images on a high resolution, archival quality CD within two weeks of your session. Engagement sessions are shot at the location of your choice, the beach, a park, or any Los Angeles location.

Do you do albums?
Yes. I can design an album for you. The price will depend on the style you choose and how many photographs you want to include. Some wedding packages include an album.

How long have you been a photographer?
I have been a photographer for twelve years.

What if I need more time than is offered with your wedding packages?
You can add additional hours for $200 per hour.
