INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture, Traditional / Posed
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
Extensive photoshopping, Edgy B&W images, and I still shoot film for some client's. I love 3200 TMZ Film. It's a fast film for low light...all B&W. Truly beautiful
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
I have experience with all light...sometimes I love shooting into the light, getting lens flare. I love to shoot with available light, and I drag the shutter quite a bit in situations where I'm shooting with a flash.
Is your media preference film or digital?
I love both film and digital for two completely diferent reasons...film still has a wonderful texture that cannot really be duplicated, but digital has an enormous width for creativity.
How many photographers do you work with?
Myself and my assistant...my client's end up with my work. I train my assistants for their own personal work, but the work I present is mine.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Always!!
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Never!!
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes...but, it has never happened in 7 years.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
I only work with Nikon equipment...I have 3 digital cameras, two film cameras (when necessary), and several lenses for different purposes...i.e. portrait lenses, landscape/wide angle, a macro for details and a long lens...
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Always!
Do you charge hourly or full day?
Full day with an hourly overtime, if it should come to that...but most peple only require 7-8 hours. Everyone is usually tired after 8 hours, especially the bride and groom!
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
I charge $200 for overtime...
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
None. Even when I'm eating, I'm listening! My client's will tell you I bring new meaning to Hyper-Vigilant...
Do you charge for travel?
Not generally...
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
The final images are generally given to the client's within 2 weeks, but during the busy season it may take 3-4 since I do ALL of the post-production work. I'm too picky to allow someone else to edit my work!
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
I give every client all Hi-Resolution CD's/DVD's...proofs are available for a nominal fee. For a number of years I gave proofs (charged more), but people were overwhelmed with what to do with 1,000 proofs! Often times more than 1,000!
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Everything belongs to my client's...excluding copyright for publication.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes...
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
Yes...
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Always, again in Hi-Resolution format, so that my client's can print larger than 8x10...just in case they want a poster!
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes, with Pictage.
What kind of albums do you offer?
Flushmount Coffee Table Books, and hand tooled Leather Bound, which really covers new, hip and trendy, as well as client's who prefer a timeless traditonal look.
When will the client get the final album?
Depending on how long the Client's take on their end, it's usually a 3 month turn-around.

Gail was amazing. Our wedding photos were so fun to do, and the time just flew by. We took such unique beautiful pictures, that my sister booked her for her wedding next year before I even got back from my honeymoon. Gail has such an awesome personality, everyone just loved her.

Gail is a true artist and a pleasure to work with. She takes beautiful shots; her style is photojournalistic for the most part, but she also shoots some amazing portraits. I absolutely loved working with her and her rates are competitive. She was a burst of energy, but not pushy. She also took the time to familiarize herself with the venue - we have shots EVERYWHERE! I highly recommend her.
