Flow of a Shooting

Insight into

Shooting

Before you hire me as your available light photographer, you probably want to know what to expect.

Or maybe not? You can also just contact me directly!

Planning: What for?

At the beginning we talk about what you actually need the pictures for. Should it be an application, pictures for your loved ones or should it be professional headshots for the agency?
Am I the right photographer for the job at all? This part is of course free of charge and without obligation and is crucial for step two.

Variations of Shootings

Determine the light and time

Available light Photographers need to know natural light at least as well as their colleagues in the studio know about different flashes and backgrounds.
That's why we consider which time is the best for your pictures. Every time of the day has its own charm and beauty, choose what you prefer for your portrait session.

Find your light

Control & choose

After the shooting, you will receive a small preview as promptly as possible, as a foretaste, so to speak.
Within two weeks you will receive a link to your own password-protected gallery, in which you can select your pictures comfortably from your home and submit editing requests, as well as give feedback.

1. What do you need the pictures for?

As a photographer, the most important thing for me is that you get the most out of your pictures

A portrait is not simply a portrait: Whether I take pictures for a local fashion label from Munich or headshots for a drama agency is a difference between day and night (that can be interpreted quite literally). Booking a photographer is something expensive, something special and something that cannot be treated according to the scheme f.

That is why we discuss in advance what you need the pictures for, whether you want to use the pictures for applications, agencies or privately. And if I realize I am not the professional for your needs, I’ll be happy to recommend experts in the photography genre that you are looking for.

2. Determine the time of day and light

The time of day at which the pictures are taken is decisive for the mood of the pictures.

As an available light photographer you don’t work in the safety of the studio, you can’t repeat exactly the same portrait at any time and design the background as you want. That’s why you have to think in advance about when and where the shoot will take place. What mood and temperature the photos should express.

Every time of day brings different challenges for the photographer and a different mood into your pictures. Depending on how long your shoot is planned, you can also fit in two or maybe three types of lights into one session.

The different times of the day can be roughly divided into golden and blue hours, midday sun, soft box light and neon light (aka. nighttime).

BONUS CHALLENGE:

Can you tell from the following portraits what time of day / weather conditions the photos were taken?

After the next section, you can.

3. The selection

Work first, then pleasure

As soon as possible, usually on the same day, I will send you a few small preview pictures of the portraits of our shoot. There is no particular reason for this, except that I would like to give you a foretaste right away.

Within two weeks you will then receive the link to a password-protected gallery that only the two of us have access to.

After logging in, it goes straight to the “most difficult” part, namely choosing your favorites. You can contact me at any time and express processing requests, ask about my choice for your selection or give feedback.

Then you can start looking forward to the final edit of your picks. At the time, the images of the selection are only roughly processed, so I’ll give your portraits the necessary fine-tuning, export them once in a small resolution for apps & social media and once in their full resolution, if you … for example if you want to print out posters of yourself.

Finally, I’ll send you the finished portraits via a downloadable link.

By the way:
If you cannot decide at all, you can of course purchase even more pictures from the selection afterwards. Depending on the package booked, these cost an additional 5 to 15 Euros.

By the way, way:
If for any reason you don’t like the editing, you can have your images reedited up to five times, depending on the package.


Satisfaction Guarantee:
As a photographer, it is a matter of honor for me that you are completely satisfied with the results. Therefore: If you don’t like the pictures at all, and we can’t find an individual solution for you, your money will be refunded. For all details, please have a look at my terms and conditions (for the time being they are only in German but if you need clarification just ask me directly).

Your Photographer

From Munich, at home in the world

My first contact with photography was when I was a little boy and got a camera for my birthday

My first pics were pretty much anything that got in front of my camera, but mostly friends, family or pets. I quickly established myself in my circle of friends as the one who always had a camera with me and captured memories and videos (at that time we didn't have smartphones).

Even today I still take photos of celebrations and special moments in the lives of my loved ones. After all, I know how precious and bittersweet (...)
