Below is a list of common questions we receive regarding commercial photography. If you have other questions, please feel free to contact us and we will get back to you shortly.
What are the particulars for getting an estimate? I would be more than happy to get an estimate written up for you right away. I just need a little bit of information to get you as accurate a quote as possible. Here are a few examples of the information I may need for your shoot:
When and where is your shoot?
What kind of images do you need created? (Portraits, Headshots, Products, Services, Interiors/Exteriors)
What is a rough estimate of the number of shots needed?
What will you be using the images for? (Website, Internal Marketing Materials, External Marketing Materials, Annual Reports)
Who owns the images? All of the images taken by a photographer remain his or her exclusive property, as stated by “Copyright Law.” Images are licensed for your specific usage, and copyright can be transferred if you are interested in a complete “buy out" of the images. This is not necessary for most clients, and will often cost more that the shoot itself, but is available as an option.
Can you meet me at the location prior to the shoot for scouting purposes? I prefer that we have a pre-meeting at the shoot location. This allows everyone to be on the same page for the shoot, and by knowing the location and your specific needs at the location, I can work as efficiently as possible in creating high quality imagery. It also gives us a chance to get to know each other face to face which always makes a difference on the day of the shoot as you are already comfortable being around me.
Can you shoot at night or on the weekend? I am available virtually around the clock, and I will work during whatever part of the day or week suites your needs best.
Can you shoot in studio? One of the great things about my services is that I will bring the studio to you at your convenience. That said, I have access to a variety of studios to suit your specific needs if necessary.
Do you shoot digital or film? Technology has advanced to a point where the quality of digital cameras now meets or exceeds comparable film cameras. That aspect, coupled with the speed in processing of digital means that I shoot digital capture for the vast majority of my work. However, if you do need your particular project captured on film, I do have professional film equipment available.
Can I view the images on-site? Yes. I always bring a laptop to your shoot, and always shoot directly to laptop if conditions allow. This ensures that you the client can make sure you are completely satisfied with each shot before we move onto the next one. It helps make the overall shooting process more efficient, and also makes sure that none of your time is wasted in redoing images.
Can I view my images online? Yes. Every client gets their own personal online gallery of selects from the photo shoot. The gallery is password protected so that no one is looking at the gallery beyond those you have enabled access to. You can also have downloads enabled if you need access to the images right away.
Is third party usage allowed? Third party usage is not allowed. Images are licensed exclusively for use by your company, and this license cannot be transferred in any way to a third party, be it another business entity, employees or affiliates. These parties may contact me to license for their own usage of the images.
What is your typical turnaround time? Depending on the shoot volume, I typically have selects available to view online within 3-5 days of the shoot, and can have them available sooner depending on your specific needs. (Additional charges may apply.)
Are there any hidden fees or services? I do everything I can do make sure that I give you my best estimate of costs and expenses before the shooting begins including items like post-processing, assistants and equipment rental. If any unexpected costs or expenses arise I will discuss it with you promptly.
What forms of payment do you accept? I accept cash or check payable to Jason Kindig.
Can I use my images on Facebook? Social media is incredibly important for business, and I will make sure that you are licensed to use your images for your business page.
