IS THIS DAYPLAN FLEXIBLE?
Absolutely! We will discuss the best use of your time when we have our planning meeting phone call. This plan is just a guide that generally seems to work well. I am all about making the day work for you and your needs.
WHAT SKILL LEVEL DO I NEED TO BE AT IN ORDER TO BOOK A 1:1 SESSION WITH YOU?
Although I don’t have a hard and fast rule on this, I do recommend that you know how to use your camera in at least AV mode and have a basic understanding of how your camera works. I also think that people who want to know about shooting families indoors and/or outdoors on location (maybe with the aim to start their own business or improve their already existing business) will get the most out of our time together. Please email me if you are unsure if you would be a good fit for one of these sessions.
WHAT GEAR WILL YOU BE SHOOTING WITH?
I photograph on two Canon 5DM3’s. One with a 50mm 1.4 and the other camera with a 35mm 1.4. I will be using this gear on the day.
WHAT SOFTWARE DO YOU USE TO EDIT YOUR IMAGES?
I edit my images in Lightroom. I do not use photoshop and will not be going through any photo processing in Photoshop. I would recommend having a play with Lightroom if you are not familiar with it. And you don’t need to be an expert or even confident using Lightroom but you will get the most out of our time together if you have had a play with it first. You can download Adobe Lightroom from the Adobe Australia website.
WHERE WILL THE LIFESTYLE SESSION TAKE PLACE?
Somewhere within 40KM of Melbourne’s CBD. It’s usually wherever there is a willing family. I will try and not make it too far from my home in Forest Hill so we don’t waste time travelling.
WHO WILL ORGANISE THE MODELS
I do! You don’t need to worry about that, I will organise everything.
CAN I PHOTOGRAPH IN THE LIFESTYLE SESSION TOO?
Yes you can! I just ask that you take a back seat for the first 45 mins and watch how I do things (so you can learn) and then have a go at shooting yourself. I will be shooting the majority of the time but this is definitely an opportunity for you to have a go.
CAN I USE THE IMAGES I TAKE IN MY PORTFOLIO?
If the client agrees (they will need to sign a permission form I will bring) then yes. I just ask that you respect the client when you are posting your images. I will never plaster a whole session all over social media out of respect for the client. It’s about choosing the best images and having purpose with your sharing. This keeps everyone happy.
WHAT ABOUT FOOD?
Don’t worry, I have that covered! I will provide lunch, afternoon tea and drinks. Just make sure you let me know if you have any dietary requirements.
CAN I SHARE MY MENTOR SESSION WITH SOMEONE ELSE?
Yes you can! If you choose to select the 1:2 Mentoring Session then your cost per person will be slightly cheaper at $1500 each.
IF I DO WANT TO SHARE MY SESSION THEN DO I NEED TO ORGANISE MY OWN FRIEND?
Yes you do. I don’t pair people up. You need to come to me with your buddy already. This way we are guaranteed a good productive day and I don’t need to worry about whether my two students are a good fit together (hopefully you like your friend!).
IM INTERESTED IN WATCHING YOU SHOOT AN OUTDOOR SESSION AS WELL AS AN INDOOR LIFESTYLE SESSION. IS THIS POSSIBLE?
Yes! Absolutely. You do have the option to extend your mentor session day so we finish at around 8:30 PM (depending on the time of year). This will mean two shoots in the one day. The price to do this increases by $500 making the cost $2160 . Let me know if this interests you (see more info above).
