How far will you travel to do a job?
I have no problem doing work in Wayne, Macomb, and Oakland County. I have traveled to Ohio, Toronto, and in the thumb area in Michigan to do work. I suggest you let me quote it and I will add the travel cost.
How long does it take you to finish the pictures and video after the job?
If I do a job on Saturday, usually I have the pictures and CD proofs in the mail by the following Monday morning. On video I usually mail them the following Friday.
How do you ship your completed work?
I ship everything US Mail.
Do you bring a back up camera with you?
Yes I do. Actually I bring 2 other cameras.
When doing the give a way pictures, what color back drop do you use?
I use two different back drops. I Splash Blue and a Splash Gray. I use the splash blue for parties and splash gray when taken more business like pictures like board of directors of a law office. I have tried other colors and they do not work.
How many pictures do you take at an event?
When I do a job I take two shots of every picture and I use one of the two shots. A lot depends on the amount on people attending too. I would take a lot more picture of a party of 250 then a party of 90. Of the one I do an average of the following: Wedding Service-200, Wedding Reciption-150, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Service-100, Bar/Bat Mitzvah Reciption-225, Give a way pictures-190,
How come you only take 190 for give a ways when I have 240 people at my party?
It is because I only print one copy per couple and because there can be as high as 6 people in one picture. With 190 shots I can print up to 360 pictures.
What kind of frames do you use; do you ever use Acrylic easel frames?
I use a decorative cardboard gloss gray 4×6 frames. It is durable, looks nice, and resists finger prints and drink spills very well. If you want Acrylic it cost an extra $350.00
If I have a logo can you put it on the frame cover?
Yes I can and there is no extra charge for any frame labeling.
Do you do Green Screen®?
Yes, Green Screen is when I shoot a subject with a green backdrop. The software automatically crops the subject out and puts then on a foreground of any background. I have several backgrounds but for a custom background there is a small graphics charge
When doing a montage, how much ahead of time do I need to get you the pictures?
I prefer 2 weeks. That will give me time to have you review the finished product.
