If you need to meet a deadline, such as a birthday gift, please inform us so this process can be expedited.
I will travel anywhere in the world to photograph you.
As a professional photographer I offer all choices of location. This can be at my studio, at your home or a rural, seaside or urban location. These options will be fully discussed at your photography planning appointment.
For locations further than 12 kms from the Richmond studio there will be a travelling fee, the cost of which will depend on the distance. If you are a long way from inner city Melbourne it might be most cost effective to organise some local friends to be photographed while I am in your neighbourhood.
However, there are many wonderful locations near the studio that may suit your needs.
Keeping in mind what your goals are, I hold your hand while you make the decisions on which images to display in your home or office.
In my studio I use the latest digital technology to project your photos to a large size on to the wall. This fabulous method makes it easy to compare similar images, see your photos at actual size, visualise them in a frame, as a canvas or grouped together to tell a story. Even more helpfully, if you supply a digital photo of your room, I can show you them virtually hanging on a wall in your own home. That is the most helpful way of knowing that you have made exactly the right decisions regarding sizes and layouts.
If you choose to have an album of images I can design the exact layout for you to see and approve.
It is an exciting and fun way to choose and purchase your favourite photos.
I want to make sure that you look great in all your images. Once you have finalised your order, your files move into the care of my skilled digital artists. Blemishes, scratches and other imperfections are removed and particular attention is paid to correct colour and tones so that every portrait is presented to you in the best possible way. The images are then sent to respected and trusted professional photo labs, framers and album manufacturers for final production.
I charge a little differently to many studios by including a print credit as part of my $425 photography creation fee.
Included is a personalised photography planning appointment, an interior design guide, the photography session itself, a selection and purchasing appointment and travel within 12kms of Richmond. It also includes $250 credit towards printed products. Social media files of all printed images are included for you to share with your family and friends.
Beyond the $250 credit, the cost of the photos are additional and the amount will depend on sizes, finishes and quantities.
Everyone wants something different so it is hard to be definitive without meeting you and finding out exactly what you want. That is one of the reasons why a photography planning appointment is so important. At that meeting you will be given a complete price list on which I will highlight the items that appeal to you.
However, to give you an idea, unframed desk size photos start at $165 whereas a framed photo or a canvas large enough to be a feature on your wall will require an investment starting from $795.
The creation fee of $425 is payable when booking your session.
Before starting your order, I require a 50% deposit with the balance due on collection of finished products.
Payment methods accepted include cash, cheque, Visa, Mastercard and EFTPOS.
If needed, I also have an interest free payment plan available. I have client-friendly terms as I understand that spreading payments out can often allow you to have what you really want rather than having to compromise.
Pets occupy a big space in the hearts of many of my clients and as family members they are most welcome to be included in your portraits.
If you have chosen an outdoor location for your photography session and the weather does not cooperate then your appointment will be rescheduled for another day.
I would really appreciate early notification if you are unable to make your photography session.
This enables me to book other appointments. Deposits are non refundable but I are happy to make you another appointment.
Photography is a wonderful gift solution for a family member, friend or colleague. It makes a most thoughtful and personal gift for engagements, birthdays, anniversaries or farewells.
