FAQ

Are Prints extra?

I will supply you with high-resolution digital images from which you may make your own prints. 

Prints may also be ordered directly through us.

Will I be photoshopped?

Yes, but not to hide your natural self.  Every photo goes through a photo editing process.  Much of it has to do with white balance and lighting.  But I also correct stray hairs, minor acne, and brighten the eyes and teeth.  Faces are so multi-faceted that it is entirely necessary to do some editing because it is impossible to perfectly light every aspect of the face at once.  For example, to get the eyes and teeth really bright from the studio lights, would cause the rest of the face to be over-exposed.  The trick is to boost the brightness in those areas but not in other areas. 

Where will we shoot?

We will shoot at a location of your choice. 

I prefer the option of shooting outdoors, such as in Sedona among the beautiful red rocks, Buffalo Park or Arizona Snowbowl near Flagstaff or at the Grand Canyon.

I have both studio lighting and portable lighting.  I also have a garage studio with seamless backgrounds and professional lights.

What should I bring?

Depending on the type of shoot, a few clothing options can be beneficial.  For outdoor shoots, bring sturdy walking shoes. For shoots at the Grand Canyon, women should bring bobby pins - the wind is almost always blowing hair in the face!

Will you post my images online?

Your images are completely private and will only be featured on this website if you provide written permission.  IF you are comfortable allowing one or more of your best images to be featured on-line, please contact me to discuss discount options and possible TFP for models.

What is TFP?

TFP stands for Time For Prints.  Photographers and Models will often collaborate for mutual benefit.  The model will offer his/her time in exchange for the right to use the images for their portfolio.   They give their "time" in exchange for the "prints" or images.
