Thanks to Lightroom's Smart Previews, this is really easy now. You don't actually have to send all the high resolution raw files... just the catalog with the "smart previews". I can make the adjustments, you import them back into your own catalog and hey presto, the adjustments are applied to your high resolution raw files. When we have our on boarding call, I will explain to you exactly how to do this and walk you through it you need it.
During our initial consultation, we will discuss who will be handling your work, whether it is me personally or one of my staff. I have a team of in-house and freelance editors trained by me and working under my supervision.
Fine art, competition and wall-art edits/retouches are carried out by me personally.
As a photographer, I have my own style, sure, but as an editor, I work to replicate your tastes and style, and that is why we have an onboarding call, I do free test images for you, and we examine your style thoroughly so I can provide you with the finished product you and your clients need. It may take a few discussions to get it absolutely right and as you want it, so I am happy to have as many calls as it takes for me to get to know your style perfectly and ensure you are totally happy with the images I send you. I want you to be able to relax and get on with marketing and shooting, secure in the knowledge that your editing partner knows exactly what she is doing and will deliver the goods, every time.
No. I edit each image one by one, make manual adjustments and never use auto functions (except sometimes auto white balance, which often gives a great starting point for further tweaking.
Just tell me what the problem is, we will take a look together over screen sharing program like Skype or Zoom, and I will redo the edits at no charge.
As I do the edits personally, my goal is to work closely with wedding photographers and schedule their weddings into my calendar, so I can provide a really fast turnaround time, as I will know in advance that I will be receiving a catalog within a day of the wedding, and will aim to get it back to you within 7 working days. By planning ahead like this, I can block off my calendar and make sure I can meet our deadlines.
Payment is in advance, by credit card online or bank transfer, as you prefer.
Yes, just contact me and we'll set up a Skype call to discuss how many weddings, time scales, turnaround requirements and a great value plan that allows you to spread your payments across the year at a lower per-wedding cost.
As long as I am available, yes, for a 25% supplement I can do a 1-2 day turnaround. Contact me asap to define terms and get started.
