Frequently asked questions

How do bookings work?

You can book a shoot by sending me an email, or filling out the contact form on my website. Your booking will be confirmed once a non-refundable retainer has been paid.

Should we have to postpone the shoot date due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, you will have the opportunity to choose a new date.

How long do I have to wait for my images?

After the shoot, your proofing gallery will be ready within the first 2 weeks in the form of an online gallery. Here you can pick your favorite images with the option to purchase additional photos.

Once chosen, your photos will be edited which can take anywhere between 2-4 weeks, depending on current work load. You will be given a new online gallery for you to download and share your photos with friends and family. Complimentary event shoots or Model Calls may have a longer turn-around.

Should you wish to purchase additional printed products from me, you can do that at this stage too!

Can I book a shoot even if I don’t live in George?

I am happy to travel anywhere in the Garden Route area.

A trip of 30km is included in every session.
– from 30km onwards a travel expense of R3,50 per Kilometre will be charged.

In the event where an overnight stay is necessary, additional travel costs such as accommodation will also need to be covered by you.

What are the final images I will receive?

You will receive fully edited High resolution JPG images, as well as social media files for sharing online. I do not release un-edited photos or RAW images.

Booking a shoot with me will include photos for private use only.
For commercial work, please contact me!
