After more than 25 years and the ever increasing march of technology my approach has always remained the same.
I like a challenge and enjoy solving clients problems. With good communication skills all the way from brief to final execution, my aim is to give my clients the images that bring their projects to life.
As an early adopter of digital technology from the scanning of film and subsequent use of High End digital capture, I have been able to keep ahead of the technology rather than regard it as a barrier to what I really enjoy, taking pictures.
With a fully colour managed workflow I have always been able to ensure the integrity of the files I supply to give my clients the best results.
My workflow involves the shooting of Raw files and subsequent supply of edited low resolution previews delivered via ftp or to view online as a Web Gallery. These images are for initial selection and layout, followed by the supply of selected images in High Resolution files as required.
This process is not instant, but is designed to ensure maximum quality from capture to print or screen.
The subsequent supply of bespoke optimised Hi-Res files will generally include minor cosmetic retouching as a matter of course, whether as a result of a less than perfect early morning shave, some unwanted graffiti in shot, or perhaps just a bad hair day. I am also happy to quote for any more creative retouching requirements, whether in-house or with a specialist re-toucher.
As an alternative to bespoke file optimisation, I am always happy to supply a folder of un-retouched Hi-Res Jpegs with the same settings as the previews supplied, on disk or uploaded via ftp as appropriate.
My preference would always be to supply files of the highest quality for selected images, which is best achieved in most instances with bespoke file optimisation although this will obviously depend on the requirements of the project and budget available.
I shoot mainly on location, but am equally at home in a studio, usually with my own lighting unless a more elaborate set up is required. I can also bring the studio to you in order to minimise the subjects time away from their work.
With a relaxed, natural approach I aim to put my subjects at ease whether on location in their own environment or in a studio setting.
Please take a look at my portfolio, or catch up with what I’ve been shooting lately… Alternatively, please drop me an email to visit with my book or to send you a quote for any projects you may have in mind.
There is little change from my perspective as all unsubscribes from previous email campaigns have been respected in line with industry best practice to the best of my knowledge. However if you feel there have been any occurrences when this has not been the case please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will ensure that you are removed from all future communications.
Furthermore, please be assured that I would never give your details to any third party without your consent. I would hope that the only reasons to hold your data would be as a result of working with you as a valued client or for keeping you up to date with my latest work (as long as you are happy for me to do so) in the hope that there may be an opportunity to work together on a suitable project in the future.
My approach to copyright is simple.
With very few exceptions I retain the copyright in the photographs I create at all times throughout the world.
The images are licensed for clients to use on very fair and generous terms. For agreed time periods and across defined territories, to include various media to meet the clients specific requirements, as agreed at the time of quotation. This may be anything from a single insertion in a magazine, to an all use buyout, worldwide in perpetuity. License to use paperwork will be issued with the invoice as appropriate.
I believe in an honest approach at the outset to ensure that everyone is aware of the expectations we have of each other, both creatively and professionally.
It is my aim to make client experiences smooth and painless and hence foster long term relationships with all my clients to create successful work for years to come.
As a member of the Association of Photographers I am bound by a code of conduct and best practice respected throughout the industry, which is designed to protect us all, clients and photographers.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any queries about the licensing of my images as I will be happy to discuss any issues you may have.
