Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know which pricing category my image(s) will fall under?
Send me one of your images and I will let you know! The category is determined by the quality/resolution of your image, how many changes you may request and the amount of time overall the image will take me to work with.
How are payments accepted?
I accept payments by email money transfer or pay pal to my email address: email@example.com in advance before editing. An invoice can be provided if wished , sent to your email or sent through pay pal.
Do not send payments before; 1: I have seen all of the images and heard about any specific changes you may want made.
b: A quote needs to be given
c: Turn around time is discussed (I may be busy), you will need to know if I can meet your deadline.
Why are payments required before the editing of images?
I require payments before editing, because I am being paid for my time as well. I don't want anyone to run off with finished images without payment. I have tried other methods in the past, many not working out in my favor, so this is now the way I do business. An invoice can always be provided.
Payments are also what holds your spot in my schedule. If a client pays ahead of you, they get served first it is only fair. I do not accept extra money for rush, first serve basis only!
Do you do any trade work?
No, I don't do any trade work no matter what the offer. I accept paid assignments only, this is what my time allows for. Any work I do update my portfolio with I get on my own terms usually from my clients.
How do I send you my images?
You can send your images to my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If images are to large to be sent by email, you can send them through a website like dropbox (be sure to include your name/photography name on the folder, so I can keep track). If you have an alternative method for sending/recieving images please let me know what that is.
When sending images please state any specific changes you may want made prior to photo editing, for example: "I want to keep the freckles and remove the moles". If there is a certain style of editing or colour effect you may have seen done, you can also send me example images so I can create a similar effect on your image. If you don't have any specific changes in mind, I will do my best to improve the overall image.
What file types do you accept?
I accept and can work with all file types. For best results raw large images are the best for me to work with, the larger the image the more details I can work with for a better ending result.
What is the minimum image size you can work with?
At least 800 pixels. When images are to small there is not a whole lot I can do with them, except minor lighting/colour adjustments.
What is your turn around time?
My turn around time is 1-2 days. I work on a first come first serve basis. Larger projects will vary, but I will always provide an estimate.
I work Monday to Friday 9am -5pm eastern time. I do not work weekends and (may) not get to any emails over the weekends.
Can you work with anyone no matter where they are in the world?
Yes, it can all be done online.
What happens if I don't like the edit you do for me?
I always want to ensure that my clients are happy with the final results, so when I send back your edit and you want something fixed/changed I will do my best to make those changes. If they are large changes or extra editing that was not stated before hand extra fees may apply. Refunds are not provided.
Do I keep full rights to my images after you work with the images?
Yes, you will always have full rights to your images.
Once you edit my images will you use them in your portfolio?
No, I will never post images in my portfolio, unless I am given permission to do so. I rarely even ask to use images in my portfolio unless I feel the image would make a great example or is different then anything I may have.
Do you delete the files after they are edited and sent back?
Yes, I do delete the original and edited files after about a month has past. I keep them stored for a little while in case you did not receive the files properly, you deleted the email or the files by accident, or some sort of problem with your computer. I do this for security of what you have paid for, ultimately it is your responsibility to back up your own files and keep them safe on your computer. The reason I delete them after about a months time is I do not have that much space for hundreds and hundreds of images. If for whatever reason you do wish me to erase the files right away, let me know.
Do you use any instant messaging to communicate with clients?
I do not use any instant messaging. I use email, which I check on a frequent basis. Emails will be answered as quickly as I am available. Instant messaging with clients would distract from my editing work.
Do you only do photo editing on model images?
No, because my portfolio is on Model Mayhem and it is geared to models, this is why I only have model images posted. I can work with animal images, products, food, scenery, real estate..etc
What type of images won't you work with?
I won't work with any type of images with a pornographic nature, but will work with tasteful nudes/artistic shots.
Do you have a website?
No, I do not currently have a website. I hope to have a website up and running in the near future.
