Questions & Answers
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First I would find out what they were looking for me to capture, if I perform that type of work and if so we'll talk about availability after that.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I went to The Art Institute of Pittsburgh. I learned a lot about basic art theology there and I went to Gateway Community College to learn about Photography but now I mainly capture professional video.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your services?
Prices vary on subject matter and the amount of coverage needed.
How did you get started in this business?
I started filming weddings and photographing various events until I was getting enough work that I could do it full time. It took a couple years for me to get to that point but I kept on at it and I'm so grateful I continued to pursue my dreams.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I've worked with all types of clients. Some that don't know exactly what they want, the very detail oriented as well as all the other people in between.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
I would say, be specific if you can or at least give me a ballpark of what you would like for me to create for you or rather the style you would like for me to capture your event in. There are a lot of photographers and videographers out there but not too many would work with you to help you create a masterpiece that you would be prod to call your own like I can ;)
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
I would say first think about the specifics like locations, times dates and styles. Then about any extras like prints, DVDs, USBs and about obtaining the RAW footage (which I can provide).
