What camera gear do you use?

I shoot with a Nikon full frame D810 camera with a 32MP FX-Format CMOS Sensor. Lenses run the full range from wide angle, telephoto, prime, zoom, tiltshift and whatever is appropriate for the assignment. Aerial photography is shot a DJI Phantom 3 Drone with 4K Camera.

What format and size will the finished photos be?

Final images are supplied in JPEG format at 3500 pixels on the long edge. If requested, image files can be provided in TIFF format or resolutions up to 8000 pixels. High resolution photos for websites are effectively displayed at 1500 pixels on the long edge.

How will the final image files be transferred?

All images are delivered via an online client transfer platform hosted by Pixieset. Collections can be viewed and downloaded to any computer in a fast and secure way.  

What is the best way to store final images?

Once transferred, it’s recommended to file and store all images in a minimum of two digital and physical locations. Solid state hard drives, cloud storage, and online backup services are recommended. All original high resolution files should be retained before downsizing for the appropriate application.

What is multi-client usage?

Multi-Client Usage permits multiple parties (such as other project consultants or contractors)  licensing rights for the images. This allows clients the opportunity to share in the cost of the assignment. Each additional party increases the quoted fee by 25%. Arrangements must be made in advance of beginning the work.

Do you travel?

Of course! I’m based out of Vancouver but am willing to travel pretty much anywhere for the right project. Standard rates apply and agreements to cover travel expenses can be negotiated.
