How long do we have to wait to get our photos?

For portrait sessions, including family portraits, images will be presented to you at a sales and viewing session at our studio within 10 -14 days after the shoot. We go through the images together, munch on some light snacks, and choose the best of the bunch for your wall art, photo albums and gifts.

Do my wall portraits come framed?

We are happy to look after the framing for you, or you can take the print to a framer of your choice.

Do you provide an online gallery that we can share with friends and family?

After the viewing session, with your permission, we will post all of your chosen images online. (Follow up: how long are they available online? Can they be copied, downloaded form the site?)

Are you willing to travel?

Absolutely! From our home base in Nanaimo, we can travel as far afield as Ladysmith or Parksville, free of charge. If your wedding, event or favourite family location requires us to travel further, give us a call to talk about rates – we are super-reasonable.

Can we provide you with a shot list of must take photos?

Of course! We love working with people who know what they want.

Do you use an assistant?

Depending on the size of the group being photographed and location of the shoot, Dirk may bring an assistant to help set up shots, and organize people and equipment. If there are 2 or more small children in the group, we also bring a child wrangler (no, seriously) equipped with games, stories and other distractions.

Can we meet with you before we decide to book you?

Professional photography services are an investment and you want to make sure that whoever you work with is going to “click” with you (photography pun unintended). We would be happy to meet with you and answer any of your questions, with no obligation or strings attached, and just see what develops (photography pun totally intended).

Can I bring a friend to my photo session?

You betcha! If your friend can help you relax so we can get the shot you want, or wants to help you keep your children from getting fussy, then they are absolutely welcome. If they just want to learn more about photography, we are happy to put them to work making coffee!

What forms of payment do you accept?

We take cash, credit cards and e-transfers. Holidays in Maui and 45-foot Beneteau sailboats are also acceptable forms of payment.
