FAQ

How would you describe your style of photography?

My approach to interiors is to accurately represent the space with focus on colour, texture & dimension. It is important to me to have spaces feel natural, even when artificial lighting is incorporated on many shots. My post production process is detailed and meticulous so your spaces will look polished and clean. My goal is to make your spaces memorable and captivating by assessing the mood and feeling of the space.

How long does it take you to photograph interiors?

Interior photography is a slow paced, detailed process. Adding/subtracting light, adjusting decor, & determining composition are just a few of the steps I take before the photo is even captured. Full day sessions are common for this type of photography. This is to ensure every aspect of your photo is perfect.

How many photos can you create in one day?

This varies greatly from project to project. For a residential design session generally I am able to create up to 15 photographs in a full-day. Keep in mind staging, styling & adding models (or pets!) to a photograph can certainly elevate images, but it will affect the number of images we can create. The photography process itself may require additional time for each shot as well if a space has low natural lighting or reflective surfaces.

How can I lower the costs of an interior photography session?

Cost sharing allows multiple parties to license images from the photographer from one session. Costs of the licensing + photography session can be split between any and all relevant parties involved in your project. This practise will also alleviate the need the need for each trade to find & hire a photographer. The more businesses you have involved with one session, the more you will save!

Can I send final photos to trades & third parties?

Unless you have obtained a license to do so, base licensing packages do not include third party sharing. If any other person or entity would like to use the images they have the option to purchase a license from the photographer.

Should I style my projects for sessions?

To create eye catching, editorial targeted images I do recommend styling your projects for photography. This helps create a story within a space. I do have contacts for stylists in the Ottawa area should you need to be connected with one.

Do I own the images you create for me?

It is Canadian law that unless you have obtained copyright, all photographs are owned by the photographer. Image licensing is a process where you either purchase the right to use an image, or you gain permission from the photographer to use the image in a specific way, such as for commercial use. The photographer include set certain terms and conditions that must be met in order for the image to be used. Depending on the type of use, you may need to purchase additional licensing to use the images in your marketing plans. This license will typically include the length of time the image can be used, the type of use, and other restrictions set by the copyright owner. It is important to understand the terms of the license to ensure you do not violate any copyright laws. I include a variety of media in packages so you can start using your images right away in your marketing plans.  To learn more watch the video below!
