HOW DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH A SHOOT?
I love being by your side to help you before and on your shoot day. we will have meetings and planning sessions to help you organizing your shoot, the best moments come from planning something amazing... and it''s really an exciting process, i also make you feel super comfortable in front of the camera. On your shoot day, all I want to capture is the feelings, the mood, the emotions, the calm and crazy moments and all the details that make your shoot unique. That''s why I decided to photograph and film in a non-traditional and laid-back way
WHERE ARE YOU BASED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?
I'm based in Cape Town, South Africa and yes I love to travel all over the world for photography and cinematography (short-films) If you want me to photograph your story, it will require a travel fee, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come
WHEN WILL WE GET OUR PHOTOS?
Your will receive an online gallery link with all your photos within maximum 2 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story). You can download all the photos from the gallery but also share them, choose your favorites, and please note that High res images are sent via we transfer and I DO NOT SEND any USB or CD's to clients, Only via online handover.
HOW MANY PICTURES WILL WE RECEIVE?
For a 2 hour coverage shoot, you will receive between 200 to 300 fully edited images. I always choose quality rather than quantity and that''s why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story.
