Do you ever deliver RAW files?
In an effort to protect/secure my personal style, my branding, I do not release any unedited images; my editing style is part of my creative process and so I cannot release my work if it is half done. As for RAW images, sometimes clients request to purchase the RAW image files, in which case it is possible. You can shoot me an email about this and we can go from there.
What's your editing style?
I have several editing styles, having been a professional photographer for 20 years now pretty much, I have developed different editing styles for different photoshoots. Sometimes I edit according to the wishes of clients. Sometimes a vintage feel is better for some images. I also love to do monochrome versions of some images if it fits. My overall editing style is a mix between colourful, vibrant and soft fantasy. I also love to do edgy sharp edits for fashion work. It all depends on the work and the desired result. Either way I always strive for the most natural result, unless otherwise requested. For example: u want barbie plastic skin . I can give you that. You are always more than welcome to have a l Look at my body of work on this website or visit instagram for an impression of my style.
How do you deliver photos, and how does the online gallery work?
The first thing I do is I send my clients proofs. (Proofs are low resolution watermarked versions of the images),The proofs do have a basic retouch where I fix the light etc if necessary. These are sent via a link where you can share and view and select the images you would like edited based on the photo package chosen. Second, once I receive your selection, I will retouch the images and up0load for download from afore mentioned link, where you can download in high resolution (for print) and low resolution (for web).
Do you shoot Weddings/Couples or families?
Yes I have covered hundreds of couples shoots; engagement, surprise engagement, just married, maternity sessions, best friends, sisters etc . Photographing couples is one of my favourite type of photoshoots because of the intimacy of relationships. I have also covered my fair share of weddings, large and small ceremonies, throughout Europe, The Caribbean and The United State, sadly I am unable to display them all here as many clients opt for discretion.
