First impressions count, and these days those impressions are first made online. Imagery is a visual voice for your audience, so why not have a personally crafted collection tailored to your brand. Suitable for creatives, musicians, bands, influencers, brands and business owners.
Studio shoots are great because I can control the lighting and background to suit you. You are welcome to bring along props.
My studio is located at 309 Victoria Street, Brunswick. Because studio shoots don't rely on natural light, they can be booked any time, including after business hours.
On-site or Outdoor Sessions
For a more dynamic portrait, we can take your session outside. I rely on natural light, so the best time of day to shoot is in the late afternoon when the sun is at its lowest. Alternatively, we can stick to the shady areas and still achieve great results.
I can bring lighting equipment for an on-site shoot, coloured backgrounds cannot be brought on location.
On-site and outdoor sessions will incur travel fees.
If you would prefer more variety, I often recommend starting our session in the studio and then finishing outside on the streets and parks of Brunswick.
No additional travel fee will be included if we remain on foot, however, keep in mind that the session will take longer so I recommend booking at least a one hour session.
Hair & Makeup
Hair and makeup is not included in my packages, but I highly recommend hiring a professional if you don't have experience. Please refer to the list of recommendations.
What to Wear
I always recommend wearing something you feel your best in, particularly clothing that compliments your complexion, hair and eye colour, as well as representing your brand appropriately.
Each Session Includes:
The option for a studio or on-site / outdoor session (or both)*
A private proofing page sent within 48 hours allowing you to select which portraits you would like retouched
Colour and black and white versions of each image
Web and high resolution versions of each image
7 business day turn around (after images have been selected)
*travel & additional hour fees may apply for location sessions
*background colour choices apply to studio shoots only
Why not have a few extras? If you find that you would like more images than the package offers, extra images are priced at:
5 for $125
10 for $200
Can I have all the unedited images from the shoot? Or edit them myself?
No, sorry (exceptions for publications/retouchers/agencies).
Handing over unedited images is basically handing over unfinished work. There are also a lot of boring image corrections that are essential when working with raw files, an Insta filter just won't cut it! You can request a particular look or style for your final edits, I am happy to match it. If the images don't require much retouching, I can supply the whole folder of images with only basic tonal corrections applied (no retouching). A fee will be discussed based on the amount of images from the shoot.
Can I complete the selection process during my session instead of waiting for the proofing page?
Absolutely, as long as you let me know during the booking process so I can allocate time for this during your session and make sure I don't have another client coming.
Can have my hair and makeup done at your studio?
You certainly can, I do charge a studio rate of $50 per hour. The hair & makeup process can take 1-2 hours, which is time I would usually use for another booking.
I want two different looks, can I shave or change my hair halfway through the shoot?
Yep, no problem, don't forget to bring any tools, towels or products that you may require. If you are going to make a drastic change that may take over 20 minutes, please let me know in advance.
How many outfits should I bring?
That depends on which package you choose. I recommend having plenty of options; variation is key. If you don't want to bring a large suitcase to your shoot you can always use a few different jackets to change up each look.
Any colour you choose can be significantly altered with lighting to appear lighter or darker, just specify your preferred tone in the booking process.
