Thank you for spending time on my website and considering me as your photographer. I feel honored that you have taken time to have a look at my work, and shown interest in me. Here are some FAQ about me.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?
I started my journey in 2009, its been an amazing journey and i will continue to give my clients amazing service and images.
DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
Yes i have had amazing studios for over 8 years in the industry before working from home. I have now built an amazing boutique newborn studio dedicated to just that, capturing your little ones. This studio is designed for newborns and small toddlers only i only shoot small family sessions in this studio as i love capturing families in their homes or outdoors. I believe having my own space to work with your precious newborns designed with safety and hygiene is of utmost importance to me. Have a look here at my studio space.
DO YOU MEET UP WITH CLIENTS BEFORE BOOKING YOU?
Yes i do on all my weddings and boudoir sessions i offer consultation meetings where we meet and get to know each other as well as discuss your session in detail. However, if you would like to meet with me to discuss your session in detail i am more than happy to arrange a meeting with you to view my space or over a cup of coffee at a location that suits both of us.
DO YOU SHOOT ALONE?
I have always worked alone and love doing so, however there are times when i do have backup photographers or assistants with me (i.e. weddings and training sessions). I train photographers so there are times where they will workshadow me to watch me do my thing and learn my skills.
HOW FAR AHEAD SHOULD I BOOK MY SHOOT?
Shoots can be booked once you are aware of your availability and of course mine. I book up 2 months in advance most of the time but the best is to confirm my availability and we can chat further about your session.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER CHANGES FOR AN OUTDOOR SHOOT?
Well to be honest i never cancel a shoot unless its literally storming outside...i will however, give you a heads up 2 days before your session on the weather especially if there are indications of rain coming or heavy winds. I always like my clients to be comfortable for a session and sometimes the weather can influence this. If it starts raining before our shoot has started we will reschedule for a more appropriate day.
HOW MUCH DEPOSIT HAS TO BE PAID TO CONFIRM BOOKINGS?
I usually require 50% booking fee upfront to secure your session, without this your session date is not confirmed as i don't hold dates at all.
For weddings i usually require 25% booking fee upfront.
I do however, offer payment plans to clients so please discuss this with me
Where is your studio? Do you charge travel fees?
My studio is located in Blouberg. I do charge a travel of R7.50 per km outside of this area.
WHEN ARE THE BEST TIMES TO SHOOT?
The best times if shooting outdoors is SUNRISE or SUNSET (the golden hour as i call it), this changes during summer and winter but is the best times for sure for those amazing background shots.
If shooting in studio i can shoot all day (as i shoot with natural light and studio lights)
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR PHOTOS?
I take approx 14 to 20 working days (excl Saturdays and Sundays) for your images.
