F. A. Q
Do you do collaborations?
Yes I do, for certain things. Collaborations are based on beneficial ideas for both parties.
Collabs for brands will benefit more. I use the items for both photo shoots and for my personal style on my blog.
How many images will you send?
Depends on what we are doing. If its a collaboration, obviously you will receive less images than a paid shoot. I usually discuss this via email/message depending on how many looks, locations etc.
Do you do events?
Not at the moment.
What equipment do you use?
Right now I'm using a canon mark 4 with my 50 1.4 and 24-70 2.8 lenses.
What are your rates?
For bloggers, $60 per hour
For standard photo shoots (models, fashion, portraits, editorial etc.), starts out at $120 per hour.
Half day sessions (6 hours) Good for brands or bloggers that need a lot of content but don’t wish to be rushed for hourly rates. Get as much content shot with multiple locations. - Starts at $600
Full day (8 - 9 hours) - Starts at $850 Same as a half day session, with a few more hours.
(For full & half day sessions, traveling out of New York City will cost extra for transportation fees)
I do like to style my photoshoots, so wardrobe can be provided. (this goes to models and brands)
I also work closely with a makeup artist. If models would like a MUA on board for shooting, a $65 charge will be added for MUA rates, per makeup look.
All images will be edited. After shooting, I allow clients to look at photos and choose the images to their liking for editing.
Will you send me raw files?
No. The only time you will see the straight out of camera photos or raw files will be during the shoot for your viewing. Like I said, you will receive edited images. If you see an image you really like during the shoot, I will mark it and make sure you receive it.
