save the surprise

We love surprises but like to save them for when you get to see your photos! Here's what you can expect.

brand photography

We're passionate about bringing ideas to life and shoot custom content specific to a detailed brief designed budgets and your brands of all sizes.

We don't have a one size fits all formula but you can expect to have someone on board that's just as excited about the road your business is headed on as you are.

Once you get in touch, we'll get to know your brand like an old friend.

Talk. First, tell us about your brand.

Brief. We design a custom service to match your brief.

Create. We get to work! And at the end, you receive beautiful content that tells your brand story.

At the end, you receive beautifully styled content that tells your brand story. We can work with your designers or help you find one if that is also what you're needing.

questionaires 

To get all of the detail we need to design a creative brief, you receive a series of online forms. Please fill them out as much as possible and where it is relevant.

client portal 

All of our forms and most emails are kept in a nifty client portal so we can all access them at any time. If you have any changes to your details, you can do it in here.

creative brief + estimate

Once I have your Q + A returned, I will send through a ccreative brief and cost estimate. Once we're all happy, we can get started.

post production and editing

Final selections of images presented for use, editing styles and overall looks are at the discretion of The Photographer to ensure image cohesion and technical requirements. Please Note: Specific Retouching and Special Edits are an additional service and incur further charges to cover additional time

availability

I'm available onsite Friday-Saturday-Sunday and some weekdays during the day as well as evening events.  Please book events in advance and let me know if you have tight deadlines to work to. We will always try to accomodate.

terms and conditions

I use industry standard terms and conditions.

creative team

I work with second + assistant photographers from time to time and you may also see people in my home studio or on-location gaining work experience. They are subject to NZ Privacy Laws

payment

Payment schedules can be organised for small businesses. 

seasonal collections

If your business operates on seasonal releases, we are able to offer ongoing preferred supplier rates and payment plans.

what to wear

I don't have any hard and fast rules but suggest you have at least a couple of changes of outfits for branding sessions.  I love contrast and punchy colours, mono, black and white and loads of texture. Pick a style and colour palette that is true to you and your brand. Aim for timeless outfits and classic looks if that is important to you and avoid multiple patterns, colours, logos and clothing with writing on it.

on location photography

Some places require special permissions / permits and there may be situations where I recommend  alternative times/locatiosn to your preferred time for a shoot, because of lighting and/or being a popular public place.

working with children

Bring snacks and drinks but make sure they have clean hands and faces before we're due to start.  Favourite toys and cuddly's can give nice, natural photo opportunities and keep children happy between locations or while we're working with others.  

referrals

If you refer someone to us, please ask them to mention you so we know who to thank!
