Q. Where are you located?
A. I am currently based in Louisiana and available for assignment nationwide. Be sure to ask me about my reduced travel fees for assignments across the South Central US.
Q. How many photographs can you create in a day?
A. Generally, I am able to create eight to twelve photographs in a full-day. This number can vary depending on the size of the project, the complexity of the photos, and how much staging, styling, and lighting need to be done. Some clients request as few as four photographs, and some of course need many more.
Q. Why does it take so long?
A. While an architectural or interior photograph may look simple, clean, and effortless — nothing could be further from the truth. A well executed architectural photograph involves many factors such as composition, time of day, adding light, flagging light, styling, moving furniture, adding models, etc. I generally allot thirty minutes per photo for exteriors and one hour per photo for interiors.
Q. How do I know I am getting the photographs that I want?
A. Every photo shoot starts way before we arrive on-location. From initial inquiry to pre-production meetings, shot-list development, site-visits, the photo shoot, and final retouching — my process is highly collaborative. We will work side-by-side throughout the entire process to ensure the final photographs are exactly what you want.
Once we are on-location, I tether my camera to a digital workstation and iPad. You will be able to see the images as they are created and sign off on the composition, styling, and lighting decisions as they happen in real time.
Q. What is cost sharing and why should we bother?
A. Strategic cost-sharing partnerships allow you and your project partners to make the most of your architectural photography investment without sacrificing the shot list or quality of the final photographs. For a detailed Cost Sharing Guide with example cost-sharing scenarios, click here.
