I have compiled a list of frequently asked questions for your convenience. If you have other questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q: Do you deliver every photograph you take?
A: No, I do not. Shots that are out of focus, duplicates, feature bad expressions (closed eyes for example) or otherwise aren't usable are not included as part of the final product delivery. That being said, I typically include a large selection of unedited but usable images as part of the final collection. These might not be what I consider the 'best' images, but they're good enough to use should the client see fit.
Q: Do you photograph weddings?
A: I do! My wedding services typically include the time and talent of the photographer, a selection of digital images delivered on a USB drive, post-processing, editing, an on-line viewing gallery, and a hardcover photo album. My goal is to keep things simple: 2 cameras, one photographer, no crazy lighting, and as unobtrusive as possible.
Q: Do you provide video services?
A. Unfortunately, I do not. However, I am happy to refer you to some excellent, local vendors that do.
Q: What is your style and/or approach to photography?
A: Photography is a medium I use to tell stories and illustrate life with an approach that values authenticity and honesty. I consider myself a natural light, documentary photographer that is heavily influenced by photojournalism and news photography. My passion is to capture shots that serve to document life rather than offering some stylized rendition of it.
Q: Do you sell prints of your work?
A: Yes, I do. Typically they are printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag®, a white, 100% cotton fine art paper with a smooth surface texture and matte finish that possesses high archival standards. If you are interested in having a print made simply drop me an email for a price quote.
Q: What sort of equipment do you use?
A. I currently use a DSLR, my primary body being a Canon 6D with my go-to lens being a (borrowed) Canon 70-200mm f 2.8l is i. I do my editing on a MacBook Pro with Retina display paired with a BenQ 27-Inch IPS 4K Monitor, using a combination of Lightroom and Photoshop to work over the images. I can't say I'm much of a "gear-head," but I do have a wish list of things I not only want, but need. One of these things is a Sony Alpha a6000 Mirrorless Digital Camera that would serve as my back-up body and primary for real estate photography.
Q: Where do you live and how far to you travel?
A: I currently reside in Skaneateles, New York, a beautiful town in the Finger Lakes of Central New York about 20 miles from Syracuse. As I've previously worked for clients as far as four hours away, I'd like to think I'm available for work a similar distance from Skaneateles. While it hasn't happened yet, I would entertain offers from destinations that are further afield, so if you want to fly me to the Cotswolds in the United Kingdom to photograph your wedding... my passport is current :-).
