Will my images end up online for everybody to see?
The photos we show on our site, and social media are from sessions where the client gives us written permission to use them.
Not everybody is happy to have their images online, and we respect that 100%. We will never publish any images without your permission.
All private sessions remain absolutely private.
Can I purchase additional images later?
We will keep your images for a month from your session at which time images that were not purchased will be deleted, but, we do keep all purchased images with backups so if you lose your prints or digital files, simply contact us.
Can I mix styles?
We shoot many different styles of photography including portraiture, headshots, model and fitness folios, actors and performers folios, family and couples, so you are welcome to mix it up and also to include your family or partner if you wish.
Where are we?
We are conveniently located at Bulimba (8km from Brisbane CBD) and our studio is a home studio which our clients love. This means there is complete privacy for you, with no chance of somebody wandering into your session. Our studio is on the ground floor of our townhouse which means easy access (no stairs) for disabled clients. We do not have any children unless you count our beautiful Samoyed, Sammie (who will be present during your session and is often requested to make an appearance in photos). If you or anybody in your family is afraid of dogs simply let us know and Sammie will not be in your session. Samoyeds are hypoallergenic for those with pet allergies. You will feel relaxed and completely at home with us. We are situated at 6/48 Stuart Street, Bulimba, only a block from wonderful Oxford Street.
Is the photographer male or female?
This is a question that we are asked from time to time.
We are a husband and wife team. Dean is the photographer & retoucher and I (Karen) assist and style your session. I am present at all times and both Dean and I pride ourselves on creating a relaxed environment so that we can capture the best possible photos during your session.
Most people feel nervous about the thought of being in front of a stranger for photographs but please be rest assured that we are very good at helping our clients relax so that we can achieve the best results possible.
Preparation for your shoot
Be sure to have a good nights sleep the night before and have your outfits prepared before bed so that you don’t forget anything. Please make sure that your clothing has been cleaned and pressed and is free of pet hair. Please arrived with your hair done the way you like it and ready to shoot. You can arrive clean shaven or with stubble for a rugged look. You are also welcome to have part of your session with stubble and then shave for some clean shaven images.
How long will my shoot take
Arrival time is generally around 9.30am or 11.30am with most sessions taking between 1 – 2 hours. For headshots, we will try to be as efficient as possible to get you back to work as fast as we can.
What do I need to bring?
Bring a nice range of outfits including casual, formal or smart. It’s Ok to bring more than you need so that we can sort out the best and most suitable. Be sure to have your outfits clean, pressed and free of pet hair as our camera will pick up all imperfections. Please avoid busy patterns such as spots, checks & stripes if possible. We will have a chat about what to wear before your session.
