What's Involved & What I Delivered in a Typical 1 Hour Photography Session:
Pre-Shoot Planning & Recommendations: Each photography session involves many variables and options that we will explore together to deliver the images that you are seeking.
First 75 km of Travel: All photography sessions include the first 75 km of travel at no cost. Additional kilometres of travel are charged at a cost of $1.00/km. My home base is downtown Calgary.
On Location Scouting Prior to Shoot: I will arrive at least 30 minutes before our scheduled shoot to scout locations and/or design lighting as needed.
Photography Time: You are free to have multiple poses, outfits, people and animals in your photo session. Lets discuss what you want in our pre-planning discussions so that I can prepare and be the most efficient. I will also bring artificial lighting if needed. Typically, a one hour photo session will result in a minimum of 50 raw images.
Custom Image Processing: I shoot high resolution digital negatives that provide a wide latitude for creative expression. Each hour of photography also includes 1 hour of additional computer processing time to create the final edited images.
Photo Retouching: I provide basic photo retouching to your images that will remove distractions and enhance the look of your portrait or photograph. Typically, this may involve teeth whitening, brightening the eyes, softening the skin, adding hair hi-lights, reducing wrinkles... My goal is always a subtle enhancement.
Private Web Gallery: Each photo session includes the creation of a private Web Gallery where you can review and select your images.
Digital Image Files: I will supply you with the edited image print files and the edited image files for display on social media. The print files will not be watermarked. Typically, a one hour photo shoot will result in 10-25 edited images.
Lifetime Personal Use License: When you purchase the image files, you have also purchased the lifetime right to print and share the images and image files for your personal use only. The images and image files can not be used for commercial purposes.
Recommendations for custom printing or framing: I can provide advice on professional printing or framing options if needed, and can even coordinate the printing and framing for you. Please e-mail for details.

Rescheduling of a Photography Session
You may reschedule a photography session up to 48 hours prior to the originally scheduled session date. Together we will mutually agree on a alternative date and time for the photography session.
The weather in Alberta is highly variable, if it’s too nasty we can reschedule. Some of the best light is during ‘unsettled’ and overcast days. My lighting system works well during these times.
I reserve the right to reschedule a photography session if outdoor photography conditions are unsafe or if travel conditions are unsafe. Together we will mutually agree on a alternative date and time for the photography session.
