If your reading this then it literally a glimpse inside my head. The head of a dyslexic. Please don’t judge. Real copy should be here in a week or two
You the client get in touch telling me what you are after and when. I get back to you with any questions and we can talk talk on the phone about the shoot. In the majority of jobs, there is a cheap and expensive option.
Once you have booked me in, we go into pre production. For those on a tight budget, producing the shoot yourself is the easiest way to cut budget. I am happy to talk you through some of the necessary steps and discuss ideas in a meeting before a shoot.
Pre-production can include any of the following depending on the scale of the clients needs: booking kit, assistants, locations scouting, designers, set props, backdrops, chairs, make-up artists, costume. The top end of this scale could involve a pre-light day, multiple location scouting, a test shoot and preliminary retouching.
We shoot. Shoot days can vary in length. But this is us working together to get the images you need. In general I look to shoot 1 set-up an hour, unless you want documentary photography, where we are following the world, rather than creating it.
First of all, I go through and select images, balance up the colours and make any adjustments I need to. Then I send them onto you – usually via drop box. Once you get back to me with your selects, I polish the chosen images, retouch and return them to you in the agreed file sizes.
