Where are you located? Can you come to me?
Las Vegas. Yes.
While I mainly serve resort and hospitality clients in Las Vegas, I accept projects from all around the world across a variety of styles including architecture, lifestyle, product, food and even construction projects.
Note: If travel is ever an issue, I'm happy to provide a photographer I can dispatch directly or consult with a local photographer in your area to help guide your project to success.
More Frequently Asked Questions
Can you do aerial/drone projects? Are you licensed and insured?
Yes and yes.
I am licensed with the FAA, follow all airspace regulations, and carry full liability coverage for all commercial drone flights.
I also have experience with traditional helicopter-aerial projects for more specialized imagery or if we need to shoot much larger subjects like buildings, landmarks, etc.
If you're considering hiring us for aerial photography, please make sure you have considered location and permitting ahead of time, as many locales have specific rules and processes for booking a shoot.
I have never hired a photographer before, where do I start?
Before inquiring, you should have a good idea of (a) how soon will you need the project done (b) whereabouts will the work take place and (c) what are some examples of what you want to achieve. It is also helpful to know who on your team will be the key decision maker/tie breaker, who will be the primary point of contact before, during, and after the shoot, and how much staff you have available to assist with the production process.
For the more detail oriented, feel free to review the AIA Best Practices Guide.
What services do you provide? Can you service ongoing/recurring clients?
I make photos and videos. Yes.
I mainly work with resort and hospitality industries which includes creating photography and media of architecture spaces, food and beverage, product and retail, lifestyle and editorial and skilled drone/aerial coverage.
I also provide advertising and social media content to help support marketing teams and small businesses on an ongoing basis as well as other services that your existing teams can benefit from such as web development, digital advertising, SEO, among other related services.
How long does it take to get my photos/videos?
10 days, generally.
Your photos and videos are typically delivered within 10 business days of the last shoot day. However, this process can be expedited if needed - don't forget to mention it when you submit your request for an estimate. Just remember... there's an age-old saying about quality, speed, and price... and while we strive to provide all three, it's usually the exception to the rule.
Note: More dynamic projects where post-production involves many decisions can take more time to deliver.
Can I share the cost of a photoshoot with my partners?
If your project is a collaboration between multiple companies or organizations, you can split the hard costs of a production and pay usage/licensing fees just for the specific needs of your company.
This is a great way to divide expenses and get the highest photography production for a fraction of the price.
Let me know if you'd like to discuss Cost Sharing or if your project involves any government agencies, NGOs, political affiliations etc.
Do you offer services aside from photography?
We offer additional services such as photo editing, retouching, graphic design, web design (we built this very website), SEO, social media management and more.
We also offer branding, marketing, and advertising consulting to help you create and maintain a cohesive visual identity.
How do I know I'm getting what I want/need? Can I be involved in the creative process?
Yes, you're the producer, I'm the director.
You (or your coordinator) can be involved in each stage of the process, from pre-production to the photoshoot and into post-production. During the actual shooting/filming, media can be shown on a monitor in real time so we all know we’re going in the right direction.
For those who prefer a more hands-off approach, we can schedule virtual a conference call over Zoom or Google Meet to review art direction, creative, model usage, etc.
Why do I need commercial photography?
Today, people value their time more than ever and are making buying decisions faster then ever. Professional commercial photography can help businesses cut through the noise and effectively showcase their products or services in the best possible light, significantly impacting purchasing decisions.
I have a general idea of what I'd like, but want to leave the creative work to the professionals, is that ok?
While we always encourage your involvement, we are professionals and with a well thought out and detailed plan we can be left to do what we always do best.
Note: Even when a project is left to our team to make key art direction decisions, we may still request direct feedback from you if we're not 100% sold about a concept we're working on.
How many photos will I get?
As many as you want.
There are many factors that go into a shot count but I generally create 8-12 photographs per day of shooting. This yield depends heavily on the size and complexity of the project considering the styling, staging, lighting, models, permits/access, and other logistical needs.
For example, a mixed-day shoot with a few high value photographs and a package of social media / detail shots would provide more quantity, but overall less quality and vice verse.
When in doubt: Plan out your media needs ahead of time and we will ensure the most important shots are prioritized.
