Glamour Portraiture

A glamour portrait session with me will show you just how interesting you really are. Get your hair and make-up done, choose a few outfits, and let me pose and light you, to look your best. Sessions typically take 2-3 hours and can be done in the convenience of your home or at a studio.

Make it an event out of it, bring a girlfriend and a bottle of wine! We're happy to shoot her as well. Also, don't forget to make a reservation for an evening out, because you both will be looking fantastic!

Glamour Portraits FAQ

What is a glamour portrait? Don't you shoot regular portraits?

Glamour portraits are regular portraits but we use make-up, lighting, direction and post processing, in the same way one would when shooting a model for a magazine cover. The images are aspirational and stunning! In the words of one of my clients, glamour portraiture is about "making moms into models".

Of course, I shoot regular portraits too. Before your shoot, we'll have a conversation about what you're looking for and how you would like to be photographed.

Why don't you have a Bronze package?

The Bronze package, is essentially the sitting fee of $2,500. As sitting fees are currently waived, there was no need for this slab.

Please explain how the packages work.

Buying a package gives you a discounted price for a bundle of services and products. A package also allows you to avail of special discounted pricing for certain services.

For example, consider the Silver package, which includes sitting fees, 5 images, an online gallery and a phone app. If you look at the Rate Card prices, that adds up to $10,500 (sitting fees of $2500 + 5 images at $1500 each + gallery and app fees of $500).

So you are getting a $10,500 value for $4,700.

Now, let's say after the shoot, you realise that there are two more images you want, so you want seven images, not five. Without a package, you'd have to pay $3,000 ($1500 each) for those two additional images. But because you purchased a Silver package, you get them at $1000 each, so you would pay only $2,000 extra. Note that the deals get better, with each level of package!

If you find you want five or more images over the number of images in your package, it makes more sense to upgrade to the next package.

What is web-res and full-res? What exactly do I get when I 'buy an image'?

Web-res, or web resolution, is an image that is optimised for use on the internet. We define that as 1024 pixels on the long side.

Full-res, or full resolution, is the image at its highest resolution, after editing. We define this, as, at least 5000 pixels on the long side.

When you buy an image, you will receive the image as a digital file in full resolution, i.e. at least 5000 pixels in the long side, and you will receive an A4 size, inkjet print of the image, mounted on foam board. You'll love them, they are beautiful!

How do I get my images, what is the online gallery?

I use the internet to deliver images to my clients. Once the shoot, and the first round of edits is over, I will upload the images at web-res to a password protected gallery. You can browse through the photos, choose, and pay for the ones you want, directly on the website. Once you have done that, I'll finalise your chosen photos and upload the full resolution files to your gallery. I'll then also enable (password-protected) downloading of images, so you have complete access to your photos.

At this stage, you will have an online gallery of the images, with your purchased images at full-res and the others at web-res. I can leave the passwords in place, or remove them, if you prefer. I can also turn on commenting and/or social media sharing. Please let me know your choices.

The website will stay online for one year from the date of uploading final images. A month prior to expiry, you will receive an automated email, reminding you of the expiry date. You have the choice of allowing the gallery to go offline, or paying $500 for another year.

Please note that once the gallery is off-line, I have no way to recover it.

Who owns the copyright to the images?

The creator of a work owns the copyright, so from the moment I press the shutter button, I own the copyright to every photograph I take.

When engaged to take photos, I grant my client an exclusive, non-transferrable, perpetual and non-commercial license to use the image(s). Exclusive means I will not grant usage rights to anyone else; non-transferable means the client cannot pass that license to anyone else; perpetual means the client can use the image(s) forever, and non-commercial means they can use the image to promote their product or service, but cannot actually sell the image or license it to a third party. At the same time, I retain those rights myself: so I have the rights to use the image(s) for self promotion, and I cannot sell the images to anyone else.
