To make sure that the final photographs and art direction are on brand and delivering the right message we need to get to know you, your business, and the goals you wish to achieve.
We will meet with you to discuss the photoshoot, visualize what you want the final photos to look like, and come up with a shopping list if we need any props or additional materials to make your vision come to life.
Here is the fun part! After staging each photo, so it is aesthetically pleasing, we’ll snap somewhere between 20-50 images of each product ensuring that we have the perfect one.
While we do everything possible to make sure the photos are perfect as soon as we snap them, a few minor adjustments will guarantee the perfect photo for your business.
Photos are delivered in a digital format via download link, or hard drive* if that is preferable.

Why should I hire a professional?
With the camera technology in smart phones these days, many people struggle to find the value in paying for professional photography, but when it comes to selling your product or service those photos are one of your most important marketing elements.
A professional photographer can ensure that those important images are stunning, beautiful, and showcase your product or service in the best way.
Here are our top reasons to hire a professional:
Top of the line equipment and higher quality images. It’s true that smart phone cameras are constantly getting better, but they still can’t compete with DSLR technology. Not to mention the range of lenses and flashes professional gear provides. We understand that it is super convenient to pull that phone out and snap away, but a professional knows how to use their gear and the surroundings to their advantage. They know what settings to use and how to get the best shots every time.
It tells your audience you are serious and care about quality. Showcasing professional photos tells the world that you are willing to invest in your business as you ask customers to invest in it as well. If customers get the perception that you are cutting corners on your marketing, they will assume you are cutting corners on your product or service as well.
Experience and the Trained Eye. Often, we think something will look amazing in a photo, but ends up looking awkward, out of place, or giving viewers the wrong perception. A professional will have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t, saving you tons of time and effort. They also tend to see angles that most other people don’t. In our experience these angles usually create that stunning product shot clients struggling achieve. They also can see how the light, background, and foreground elements work together to get that perfect showcase for your product or service.
The professional edit. When you pay for a photographer you also pay for edited photos. Editing doesn’t just increase the level of perfection; it can also add a specific feel or style to the finished photos. Small details like this can really elevate your brand and the way people view your product or service.
How long is the average session and how many finished photos can I expect?
This depends on what kind of session you are looking for. A simple headshot session can be as short as 15 minutes, resulting in one or two finished photos, while a session for multiple products may take a few hours and result in hundreds of finished images.
How long after the shoot can I expect editing to take?
Editing is 100% dependent on the number of finished images and the level of editing required. We strive to take near perfect images at the shoot and reserve editing time to elevate them to absolute perfection so that the turnaround is as short as possible. In most cases finished images are delivered within 1 to 2 weeks.
How much should I expect to spend on photography?
That depends. What does it depend on? Mostly your budget. We try our very best to create an exceptional product that works within the amount you have available to spend. A few other factors that can affect the price of your photos are:
- Materials purchased to build a photo set
- Shooting location(s)
- Any speciality editing you may require such as colour or special effects
In general, the cost can range from $500 to $1000 for a set of beautiful images. We would love to discuss your budget and provide a quote that reflects your needs. Book a free consultation now.
