POST PRODUCTION & DELIVERY
How do you deliver the photos? +
Your images will be delivered as a private online gallery. The gallery will remain online for 60 days, you will be able to download and save High Resolution images as well as a web version. The gallery will also give you the possibility to order prints, orders are fulfilled by a US Pro Lab and will be delivered to your doorstep. The gallery can also be shared with friends and family if you wish. Check out our DEMO gallery
Can we obtain a Slideshow? +
Yes, can create a .mp4 Slideshow with Titles and Music if you wish - There is an additional charge as it takes some work to re-format the photos for a TV screen as well create the movie.
Do you deliver every photo taken? +
No we do not. We take many extra photos during a shoot; it is the photographer’s task to carefully select and weed out images with unflattering expressions, eyes closed, poor focus, test shots, repeat shots etc.
How many images do you typically deliver? +
Most commonly, packages in Bora Bora are defined by the hour with the delivery of X photos. A typical photoshoot of one hour will normally yield around 50 photos but please feel free to ask for package details available at your resort.
Do you re-touch the photos? +
Yes, this is an absolute must; I firmly believe that is any the task of any professional photographer! Any photographer not re-touching or only re-touching a certain amount of photos does not do justice to its clients. ALL the images selected for delivery go through post-production re-touching!
What does re-touching mean and is there an extra cost? +
Shooting in RAW will render very flat images which need post production adjustments to be made. Exposition, color, contrast, reducing or enhancing highlights are the basics. It also includes the removal of un-wanted objects in the background, some skin softening on close ups, removal of unflattering skin anomalies (pimples). This is why you hire a professional photographer, details make the difference and that is part of the package – No additional cost.
Can we obtain the RAW images? +
Normally not, there are certain considerations around this subject. I am not opposed to delivering a few and will be happy to have a discussion on the subject.
What exactly do we obtain? +
You will obtain all the images selected for delivery in a digital JPG format. One set in high resolution for printing purposes as well as a set in lower resolution mostly to be used on social media/web. I will also select a few photos and process them with different filters, low tones, sepia, B&W etc.
How quickly can we obtain the photos? +
My philosophy being to deliver quality images rather than quantity, I don’t cut corners during post production work. Depending on workload, and the quantity of photos to deliver; please allow 3 to 7 business days.
I see some photos on your portfolio are lower in tones or B&W? +
While my objective is to deliver REALISTIC photos that are not over saturated, I take advantage of the digital era! All my clients will also get a sub-set based on the original but processed in a different way. This is to give you a variety of photos, which is especially nice when printing a book.
Do you archive and keep a copy of the photos? +
Yes, I archive the RAW photos for a period of 3 months and your gallery will remain online for 3 months as well.
