Where are you based?
I live in Rockdale, located in Sydney New South Wales. However I am available for weddings across Australia and internationally.
What gear do you use?
I use fully professional equipment, Sony A7iii cameras and Sony lenses. Check out my Professional Photography Equipment.
What is your personality like?
I am easy going and energetic, I'll try to fit in and hang out. I love meeting new people and I am not afraid to start a conversation. I am spontaneous and creative, so when things aren't going to plan, I can find a solution.
My style of photography is about connecting with you personally. I will get to know you and find a way to bring out your natural smile. You will feel totally comfortable and you will enjoy the sincere moments. I take advantage of natural landscapes and always shoot from multiple locations. I am mainly discrete, but assertive when required for formal photos.
I am not photogenic and I am nervous about having my picture taken?
In our pre-wedding consultation, we can discuss your worries and plan the necessary controls to prevent unwanted photos. I will always be looking out for them and use discrete hand signals for you to readjust your posture etc. As a piece of mind I will regularly show you the photos I take on the back of my cameras.
Will you travel for our wedding?
YES! I would absolutely love to, where ever you want.
What time of year is best to get married?
Autumn! It is not too hot or cold. There is a balance of RGB (red, green, blue) in the landscape, which makes for the best photos. Also the light is not as harsh as the middle of summer, which makes for more flattering portrait photos. Spring is almost equally as good.
Winter is also a great time, yes it is cold and the trees are brown and gloomy. But the light is soft and makes very flattering portraits. Sunset is also around 5:30pm so the "Golden Hour" for portraits will fit in the best before a reception. Plus the venue is cheaper!!!
How much experience do you have?
Engagement Sessions: 4
Family Photoshoots: 7
Are you an insured business and do you guarantee your work?
Yes I have equipment, liability and indemnity insurance. I guarantee that all your files will be stored in a fire rated safe and saved on multiple hard drives for at least 7 years, potentially forever.
How do you normally charge for your service?
I charge a 25% Deposit + 75% due 14 days before Main Shoot Date. Payable via Osko, Bank Transfer, PayPal, Stripe or cash. Please note 2.5% surcharging on card payments.
Can I choose a particular Lightroom preset for all our photos?
Absolutely, if there is a certain preset or film style you want me to match, I'll be happy to produce those images.
How many photos will I get after the wedding?
I aim to delivery at least 60 high resolution edited photos per hour of coverage, however it may be more depending on the happenings at your event. Some photographers say unlimited photos, is it though?..
How long will I have to wait to get my photos?
I usually take around four weeks to send your photos, but it can take up to six weeks in busy periods.
Can I print my photos?
Go for it, they are all yours. You can print as many as you like without consulting me first. I strongly recommend using a high quality print shop like Queensberry. Budget photo printing at K-Mart and Big W will deteriorate, the colour balance is usually incorrect and the overall image quality is poor. In the end of the day you pay for what you get.
If you haven't shot a wedding at our venue, how will you know where the good spots are?
I am always looking out for ideal locations to create a nice composition. If I haven't been there before, I'll scout the location beforehand if I am reasonably able to do so. There are so many factors that can effect a "good spot" like weather, available light, or a bus full of tourists. We must always be prepared to improvise if need be.
Do you use an assistant?
Generally no, however during wedding portraits and engagement sessions on a bright sunny day. I may use an assistant to hold a soft box or sun light reflector.
Can you make us an album?
I sure can, I can send you a price list and there is loads of luxury options.
How much coverage do we need?
Usually 9 hours, I can put together the story of you both getting ready, right up to Uncle Bob doing the worm on the dance floor. After that, things get kinda messy.
Can we have the RAW files?
Absolutely! I can deliver all of the files I take during my coverage hours for you, plus the LR catalog I do all the editing work on. However this is only deliverable via USB for an extra $100.
Why Precisepix and what does it mean?
When creating the business name I wanted something to be relative to my personality and previous experiences with working in a construction environment. Precision is something that essential for any project, the same can be said for taking a photograph. I can be in the precise place at the precise time with the precise camera settings to capture your precisepix.
