HOW AND WHEN DO I BOOK MY SHOOTING?
You can write to me on Instagram, Telegram or fill out the form in the “contacts” page or on the main page of this site. We will discuss with you the details of the shooting and choose a convenient date.
I recommend planning the shoot in advance, on average 10 days in advance, but if you get photographic inspiration and need it urgently — write, we will find the nearest available time.
If you plan to invite me to shoot an important event, such as a wedding, it is better to book the date as soon as you understand your plans.
WHAT IF I DON’T KNOW HOW TO POSE?
You don’t have to pose. You are not a professional model, but a real, lively, beautiful person. I won’t torture you with staged shots; it’s my job to find your best angles. I’ll tell you what to do to feel natural and comfortable. Don’t be afraid, you don’t have to be shy with me.
HOW LONG IS THE PHOTOSHOOT?
The duration of the photo session is stipulated in advance. We are guided by this time, but I never stipulate a rigid time frame. If we catch a wave and want to take a few more shots, then we will do it.
WHAT IF I’M NOT PHOTOGENIC?
This is the most common fear and (attention!) misconception of those who find themselves infant of camera. I believe that everyone is uniquely beautiful and my job as a photographer is to show you that you — as you are — are beautiful and attractive. You can consider our shooting as a kind of psychotherapy, which helps you to accept yourself, increase your confidence and love yourself.
CAN OUR PHOTOS BE PROCESSED OUT OF TURN?
Yes, you can. You will receive your finished photos within 10 days. If you need to get the photos sooner, you can pay for an additional urgent editing service for 2-3 days (not counting the shooting day)
HOW AND WHEN WILL I GET THE FINISHED PHOTOS?
The standard editing time is 10 days, not including the shooting day. But usually I try to give the photos earlier. In most cases the same day or the next day I send you 2-3 photos in the finished edit for mood and an approximate understanding of what the end result will be. If you need urgent processing (3 days), you can pay for this additional service.
You will receive photographs as a link to cloud storage on this web site, they will be stored for an specified time. From the storage you will be able to download all the photos without loss of quality.
CAN I TAKE THE RAW?
Yes, I can give you all the RAWs for additional money, but so far I have never encountered such a request. Probably because everyone likes everything?)
WHAT KIND OF EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
I am currently shooting with a Canon RP full-frame mirrorless camera. I use fix lenses with focal lengths of 50 mm and 35 mm, which make a nice blurry background and add depth and airiness to the picture.
HOW IS THE PRICE FORMED? WHY IS IT SO EXPENSIVE?
The work of the photographer includes many factors that make up the final price. Some of them are: taxes, working time of shooting, travel time, time for selecting good takes, color correction and retouching of photos, time for preliminary consultations, resource of equipment — camera, lenses, batteries, computer, etc. (any technique wears out over time and it needs to be repaired/updated), subscription to licensed programs for processing your photos, support and promotion of official photographer resources, and much more.
As you can see, this is not just a “paid walk around with a camera, ” but a serious project that requires comprehensive support.
