This is our first meeting to discuss exactly what your expectations are and what types of images you will want. This meeting can be done via email, phone, FaceTime or in person. We will discuss timelines and set expectations for deliverables, and plan for our next meeting, an On Location Review.
We will visit the location to scout out lighting, angles, shadows and challenges so we can plan on the equipment needed At this point we will plan a time to create the images. This will also be an opportunity to meet in person if the Initial Consultation was done via email or phone. After this we will generate an estimate for you to approve and a Services Contract for you to sign. We require a Booking Fee of 50% at this time to confirm your session timeframe is blocked out on our schedule. This fee is your guarantee that the time will not be booked or made available to anyone else.
We will need a window of time where we wont be disturbed, so outside business hours, or during slow periods, is best for the interior images. We will work quickly, but we will take as much time as is needed to get the images you want. The exterior images will be done when the light is best: Dawn or Dusk, depending on your location, which direction the business faces, landscaping and other factors. I will need the use of a break room or other space to setup backgrounds and lighting for the Head Shots. If you prefer, the Head Shots can be done in our studio.
We will bring all necessary photographic equipment to the site. I shoot tethered to a laptop so you will be able to see the images in Real Time. If you like an image, we’ll keep it for further post processing. If you don’t like an image, we’ll delete it and make another until you are satisfied. Doing this eliminates the need for another meeting for you to select images. Anyone who wishes to be in an image, and for the Head Shots, will need to be prepared: Dressed appropriately, groomed and ready for a portrait.
We will apply Post Processing and editing to the final images, to bring them up to a higher quality and make them “pop”. Digital images will be available for download (3) Business Days after final payment is processed, on our Web Gallery Download site. Framed images and prints will take up to (3) weeks for delivery to your location.
