- What areas of North East Alabama do you service?  Are you willing to travel outside the that area?

My primary service areas are those counties surrounding Gadsden, Al.  For residential photo shoots, I will travel up to 40 miles round trip from Gadsden, AL at no charge.  For commercial shoots and Day Rate work, I will travel up to 100 miles round trip at no charge.  Any travel beyond that is calculated at $0.50 a mile.

- How much time does a typical photo shoot require?

My Basic Photography Package is usually completed within two to three hours of arriving onsite.  Commercial Packages are typically completed within six to ten hours.  Should any specialty shots such as Night Time Photography be requested, I typically need an additional hour of access to the property.  There are no short cuts to obtaining the level of quality my clients have come to expect.  It is a time consuming and laborious process but one that I approach with passion and enthusiasm every time.

- How long does it take to get the photos delivered once the shoot is finished?

In most cases, I am able to deliver a final product within 1 week.  Commercial Packages offer proofing within 48 hours of the completed shoot.  Should more time be required the client will be informed before the shoot takes place.  Please note that in the peak Spring and Summer real estate selling seasons scheduling and turn around time may be extended by a couple of days.

- By what medium will the photos be delivered?

Your photos will be downloadable straight from your gallery that I create.  My goal is to make obtaining the finished photos as easy and convenient as possible for the client.  Please note I do not provide a physical product like a DVD or CD at this time.

- Will my photos look as good as the photos on your website and other marketing materials?

Yes.  The photos presented on my website are actual images delivered to my clients.  Every client receives the same attention to detail and professionalism that I have built my reputation on.  If I accept your assignment rest assured your images will look just as good as what you have seen so far.  Your satisfaction is guaranteed or I will do what it takes to make it right.

- What is your rescheduling policy?

Due to the nature of this type of photography service, there are occasions where it is necessary to reschedule.  Rescheduling requests made by the client within 24 hours of the appointment time may be subject to a rescheduling fee.  In the event of inclimate weather or the prospect of less than ideal shooting conditions, I will offer an alternative appointment time at no penalty to the client.

- Does someone need to be present at the property at the time of the shoot?

No.  I typically work alone but agents, homeowners, stylist, etc. are more than welcome to be present.  In regards to gaining access to the property, arrangements will need to be made to allow me entry unless the property is on a combo or non-Supra lockbox.  Furthermore, unlisted property and commercial work require arrangements be made in advance for me to enter the property.

- Do you do your own post processing and editing or do you contract that work out?

I am proud to say that I oversee all my post processing and editing.  In fact, I have developed proprietary techniques and methods that set me apart from other real estate photographers.  I am fully versed in Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5.

- Do you use supplemental on-site lighting or only available light?

Both.  I am equipped with several supplemental lights and strobes as well specialty items such as umbrellas.  All shots are taken to make the best use of available light but I can and will use supplemental lighting should the occasion call for it.
