There are many ways we can work together on your projects.
One might use my photos as stock imagery by purchasing usage rights. I also do custom photoshoots and special subject requests (I call these “photographic scavenger hunts” - gobs of fun!), and sometimes collaborate with other artists using a wide variety of mediums, both traditional and digital.
Movies/videos can be created using photography and music with creative compositing and editing skills. This is a service I offer for both business and personal needs, where I can either use my stock photos, do a photoshoot for you or you provide the photographs and music preferences, and I create the video for you.
I also have resources for non-copyright music, custom composing, direct association with a variety of musicians, and if the video is for private use only, it is possible to use your favorite popular music. Let's talk and brainstorm ideas!
How does a project get started?
The most efficient method for me is to sit down with you (in person, electronically or by phone) and go over the various needs and ideas you have and then develop a timeline and budget that will meet your criteria. We can start a chain of communication that I'm sure will be an enjoyable experience. If I cannot help you, I will certainly do my best to refer you to someone that can meet your criterion. I wear many hats to utilize my skills and would love to make your dreams come true!
All projects are customized for your needs, so a published listing of my services and rates is unavailable.
