Exactly as it’s spelt. Gin-ev-re (Gin-ev-ra).
Australia – and I lived in quite a few different places so I don’t really consider myself to be from any one place. Alberta is now my home. I actually hate being asked this question, as I consider myself Canadian now, so I really hope you are reading this before we meet 😉
So many years it makes me seem old. I’ve been shooting professionally since 2007.
Unfortunately no. This is my business and my livelihood, and I’ve been doing it a long time. I don’t get to keep all the money I take in, not even close. Think of it this way, if your boss asked you to do the same amount of hours but at half your current pay, would you do it? Or what if your boss asked you to work for free?
After we chat details, booking is all done online through my studio booking system. A retainer is required to confirm all bookings, the amount depends on what type of session it is. You will also sign the contract online. It’s easy and it takes less than five minutes.
As soon as I can possibly get them edited. This varies with the time of year. During summer and fall, please allow me a few weeks for portrait sessions and up to three months for weddings. This is because I am usually out shooting more than I’m in the office editing, there just aren’t enough hours in the week. I do my best not to overbook so that you won’t be waiting too long because I know you’re dying to see those photos! I edit them one at a time, and look at every single one, and weed out any that don’t meet my standards. This takes a while but some things are worth waiting for.
Yes, unless you ask me not to. I am discrete about things like save-the-dates and baby’s gender reveal, if I’m not sure I’ll check with you before posting as I know you might want to announce certain things in your own time.
Professional lab prints can be ordered from your online gallery. The gallery is only up for a limited time so let them know right away.
I won’t shoot hunting themes, guns etc. or anything that portrays the killing of animals. I’ll do outdoor camping themes, and even fishing, just not hunting specific.
I’m not super keen on jumping shots or hearts made with hands.
I can’t hike very far with my gear. Sorry, I’m not that tough. So if you are dreaming of a five mile hike and photos at the end, I’m not the photographer for you.
