Frequently Asked Questions
Do you photograph pets?
Yes. I love pets. I have two dogs. A husky-golden-retriever mix and a Rhodesian Ridge-back.
Do you photograph weddings?
No. I used to but have decided that I don’t want to move in that direction anymore. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, I strongly recommend you check out Boone & Stacie Weddings or Abby’s Photography. If you insist on hiring me, check out my page about weddings.
Why do you shoot boudoir?
Women are inundated with skinny, perfect skinned, edited models in advertising and commercials. What most women don’t know is that they can look amazing too, they just need to hire the right photographer.
Where do you shoot?
Most of my sessions are done on location, either at the client’s home or outdoors. I do some sessions in my home depending on the needs of the client.
What do you like to capture?
I love to photograph people. I like hearing the stories of an individual or group and seeing their joy when they see photos of themselves.
What is the price?
See my pricing page for more info.
You are a guy shooting boudoir?
I am very respectful of the women I shoot and I would be happy to give you a list of clients for you to ask them yourself. I love my wife very much and look forward to going home to her every night. I shoot boudoir because I believe women are beautiful and deserve to be portrayed as more than just “sex objects.”
I am not sure about shooting with a male photographer…
I completely understand. I am not everyone’s cup of tea. My clients actually prefer having a male photographer behind the camera. I am not silently judging them like another woman might do and as a guy, I have a good idea of what looks sexy and what doesn’t. Being professional also helps my clients feel comfortable working with me.
Why are you asking questions about hobbies and my likes? You just take pictures right?
Um, no. Photography is a powerful medium to show the character and soul of an individual. Those expressions are best when they are personal. To make images personal, we need to include the things you like and enjoy. Everyone has things they like even if they don’t think so. Some of those things include:
I am not the type of photographer that just snaps photos for you to put on Facebook or your phone. If those are the types of photos you are looking for, you don’t need a professional photographer or even a fauxtographer. It would be unethical of me to not bring my best to your session. To bring my best to every photography session, I need to learn about my clients’ likes and personality.
What if I don’t want you to show my images?
I am completely willing to not show your images. I ask that you understand my business is built on two things: word of mouth and imagery. For me to be able to get new clients, I have to be able to show them what I do. You can help me by referring friends and family to do a session.
Do I get the rights to the photos?
Yes and no. I give you the right to print the photos for personal use. I do not give copyright unless you purchase it. Copyright refers to the owner of the image. If you own the copyright, I can’t show the image on my website. I welcome you to purchase the copyright if you would like to own the images in whole. I charge $50 per image or $1200 for a whole session.
But I paid you for photos, why don’t I “own” them?
You are actually paying for my time, skill, expertise, and equipment. The photos are the result of those 4 things.
