BEFORE THE CALL
We have listed some of our most frequently asked questions that may help you before we chat.
How do I receive the images?
It depends on the individual job. We generally will have a digital preview available within 48 hours.
What will it cost?
It will depend on the requirements of each individual job. We offer commercial photography and video tailored to your needs and requirements. Most quotes are made up of a photography fee for full or half day rate, plus a fee for the time spent on digital download, shot selection and post-production. Our minimum fee for a small job up to 1 hour is $250.
How long will it be before I get my images or video?
It depends on the individual job. Most photos need processing whether it’s something as simple as cropping or resizing or skin retouching. Some images such as product shot may need more editing and retouching. I generally will have a preview available within 48 hours.
How does this work?
Prior to the shoot we will discuss your project and/or you can provide me with a written brief. During the shoot I’ll supply all the equipment/models/studio time as agreed, and I’ll work with you or your marketing team to deliver the brief.
After the shoot I’ll show you what I consider to be the best results. Unless we’ve agreed beforehand you won’t see everything I’ve taken.
We will discuss your preferred shots and I will make any amendments to meet the terms of the initial brief. Changes that weren’t part of the initial brief will mean an additional charge.
Our company needs some headshots; do we have come into a studio?
We often shoot on location. We have professional photographic and video lighting equipment which I can bring to your location, and can set up an ‘on-site’ studio or we can use the office environment as the backdrop.
Who owns the copyright of the images?
The copyright always remains with Danielle Blancher, however we grant the clients the right to use the images where they please. All we ask in return is for a small credit back to Danielle Blancher to be included where possible!
After the shoot Danielle will show you what we consider to be the best results. Unless agreed beforehand you won’t see all images taken.
We will discuss your preferred shots and will make any adjustment. Additional changes that weren’t part of the initial brief will mean an additional charge.
Do I really need to credit you when I use an image?
Yes please, part of all of my photography and video licensing agreements is to credit Danielle Blancher Photo and Video unless otherwise discussed.
Can I let a third party have/use/work with the images?
You can, provided that’s what we’ve agreed in advance. If that’s not part of your licence agreement please get in touch with Danielle Blancher before you take any further action.
How many photographs will you take?
There’s no specific amount – We aim to take as many as possible during the time booked but the number can vary depending on what you’re after. We always make sure the client has plenty of images from their shoot.
What happens if I need to cancel or postpone the date?
If you need to postpone or cancel your photography session please let us know as soon as you can. For postponements, we will work with you to agree on an alternative date.
Cancellation of a photo shoot made more than 3 weeks before the date of the shoot will incur loss of reservation fee but no further fee. Cancellation of a shoot between 1 and 2 weeks from the shoot date will incur a fee of 50% of the booked rate.
Whose responsibility is it for obtaining rights and releases?
If Danielle Blancher Photo and Video is arranging models/locations etc it is our responsibility to get all necessary releases, consents etc. If the client is arranging them, it’s their responsibility.
