How I work
Review the different photography packages on my website, select the “BOOK A PHOTO SHOOT”, make your selection on my professional-dog-photographer.com bookings page, (there are 5 options) pick the day and time you want to schedule the photo session. That’s all there is to it. You will hear from me shortly.
The packages that include a preproduction meeting, we schedule a preproduction call at your convenience and discuss several topics. Your fur-babies name, how old, how big, weight, temperament? What environment will the final images be presented in? (more on this in the postproduction meeting) If we are doing a “Pant-o-graph” we discuss the artistic style and coloring that you have in mind or my suggestions based on your dog and your home interior. How well does your Fur Baby “sit” and “stay” on command? Your dog’s ability to “sit and stay” are critical to the total number of shots that we can get that are usable. It is not impossible to shoot an “untrained” dog but it does limit the type and number of images that we can get. If you are not sure how well your Fur Baby sits and stays, please see the “Before the Shoot” page link. Most of my clients pay me the day of the shoot with a credit card.
HOW I WORK
I believe in giving your dog some time to sniff around the studio first before we start shooting. This is a new space and a big deal for them also. Once I sense that they are relaxed, then we proceed to shoot.
Depending on which package you selected, after the shooting session is done, I review the photos, cull down the images to the best ones and send you an email link for your selections.
Once approved I start the development process. Usually 2- to 3 days, based on how busy my shooting schedule is.
I typically pick one of my favorite images and do some retouching and clean up to show you some of the postproduction that I can do. Based on your package selection, determines how much post processing and image enhancement is done. The packages are for the digital files only as described.
Prints or other options are all separate. There are numerous ways to show off your Fur Babies pictures! We can discuss these options after the shoot.
I do offer one 8 x 10 standard color print for $40.00 shipped directly to you.
Additional images, styles, and materials are all custom and priced accordingly. I use a very high-quality wedding printing company for my digital prints. Please see Millers Lab in St. Louis they do excellent work. Here is a link: https://www.millerslab.com/home
My work is about excellence and Millers Lab has very high standards like I do.
