FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

I like to have a phone conversation to determine the client's needs and expectations. I also like to see their website or portfolio to help me visualize what they like. Finally, I like to see other photos or photographers they like. My goal is to give my clients photos that they will be proud to display and use. Fulfilling thier expectations is my highest priority.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

As a trained actor, I learned to appreciate appearance and visual direction. I use those skills to see a room or loaction as if it's being viewed by an audience. I have also worked as a graphic desinger for many years. Design and communicating visually have been a central theme of my working career. I use this skill to communicate with the images I make for my clients.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

For a single room at a single location, my rates start at $300 for approximately 1.5 hours of shooting. For 2-4 rooms, my rates start at $649 for approximately 2-3 hours of shooting. My half-day rate is $750 and a full day is $1,200.


How did you get started in this business?

I'd been working with interior designers to add my photographic art to their projects. As I got to know and understand designers better, I realized I could help them capture thier work using my artistic eye and appreciation of good design. I began to incorporate interior photography into my work flow.


What types of customers have you worked with?

I've worked with mostly residential designers, although I have commercial cleints as well.


What advice would you give a customers looking to hire a vendor in your area of expertise?

Look at the photographer's work via their website or their portfolio of images. Ask yourself if they are capturing the feeling of a design and presenting it in a way you'd like your designs to be seen. The images should not be noticable. The design should be the star of the photogrpah.


What questions should customers think through before talking to vendors about their needs?

What are they intending to use the images for? Promotion, documentation, editorial?

What are the best designs I have done that I can get access to for photography?

What kind of investment am I willing to make to have these photos?
