About this guide
Actually, you don't need a guide to book a portrait session with me. Working with me (and my team, when needed) is just easy and enjoyable. I am down to Earth, happy to be a photographer, and dedicated to give you the best time while creating a fantastic picture.
I am a Naples Portrait Photographer, still, I take portraits at places anywhere near a plane can land.
This booking guide is an overview for those who like these kind of things. In order to create a portrait for you, for a family group or anything in between, we need to talk, either by phone, facetime or in person, to reach real understanding of what you want and set things in motion.
I want your portrait photography to be the best yet.
You've seen some of my pictures. The best ones are yet to be created. I have made wonderful images, still every click is an opportunity to be better.
With above in mind, we will have a conversation to learn about your expectations, needs, goals and ideas. All questions will be answered. Once we feel all is understood, we set a plan, set the budget, set a date, I send you a contract.
Booking, contract, retainer.
You book your session by sending back the signed contract and by paying the booking non-refundable retainer. For your convenience, I can send you an electronic invoice (currenly using Flint.)
Your booked date is your day. Once booked, it is reserved for you only. We will meet to create fantastic images.
A contract that spells out all pertinent details sets the scope of our agreement.
Session time: capturing light.
On the day of photo session, I will photograph you—and your party, if any, and it will be a great time, a time to create what we both want: fantastic photography. This is what your session fee covers.
Choosing your photos, prints and digitals.
Within 30 days (unless we arrange differently) ideally we will meet to check your pictures. It's a fun meeting! You will make your selections, order specific edits and order your prints. I will show you samples, I will give you alternatives. In short time, you will have your prints.
In case you are not local to Naples I will create a gallery online where you will be able to choose your images.
Your images, your prints: delivery times.
Post-processing is a very rewarding yet time consuming task. Current post-processing times takes between two weeks to six weeks depending of the project. Upon request, I can have a few images done within 48 hours, availability permiting.
I hand craft images one by one, dedicating precious time to transform what I capture during the photo session into an image that reflects my art, your expectations and goals.
Furthermore, I develop your image into its full potential, converting the light captured into a joyful memento, a powerful networking tool, a family heirloom.
