Frequently Asked Questions
This is the most common question, of course. “How much is this going to set me back?” It’s not an expense as much as it’s an investment in your professional future or business. The best way to get a more specific idea of price is to call me and discuss what you’re looking to do. We will talk about the type of shoot that will best match your target audience and deliver your message. Once that’s set, I will recommend the type of shoot I think will work best for you and what the investment will be.
I do have some basic package pricing that can covers more simple headshot sessions starting from €195 for (1 person/on location/1 digital negative). However there are multiple options that can change your investment. For example, the options include – Do you need me to come to you (office or home)? Will I need to travel to another city? Would you like multiple outfit/location changes? Will there be multiple people to photograph? Are we doing lighting on location? Do we need props or special permits? In other words, don’t be afraid to call me to discuss. I love to chat about photography so I’ll always be happy to hear from you.
Absolutely! A small travel fee is customarily included in the pricing for those sessions in order to cover travel expenses and time. However, depending on the type/size of the shoot it may be absorbed by me. I love to travel within Holland, so don’t hesitate to ask!
This is quite a common question. The answer is: I will make you look the best you have ever looked in pictures. I know all the tricks of the trade to create the most flattering angles for all the different body types, faces, and height. Having said that, all final delivered images are fully retouched and enhanced for maximum impact and minimum distraction. You do still need to look like you, so I don’t over re-touch or iron the skin to look pore-less. But, you will look like you are incredibly rested and as if you had a really good night sleep. 🙂
A branding photo session is a where we create a set of images that tell the story of your brand, whether your brand is a business or you are your brand. It is where there is more than just photos of you. The images show the story of your brand through interactivity with other effects or with people which showcase more of the surrounding environment and reveal your personality. Branding sessions are all shot on location.
We discuss clothing in detail when we plan your session, so don’t worry about a thing. On the day, you’ll just need to feel comfortable, confident and relaxed in what you’ve chosen to wear. I’ll guide you through the ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ of clothing colors and patterns during the planning process
This is also simple. Most of my female clients either do their own hair or have it done professionally for the day of the shoot. Ladies – you should plan to wear make-up even if you don’t usually wear any. It really helps to balance your skin tone, reduce shine and add a healthy glow to your complexion. If you regularly wear make-up, apply about 20% more than you’d normally wear as the camera really absorbs it. Men – shave right before the photo shoot to avoid facial shadows. Everyone should avoid getting a haircut on the day of the shoot as it will be obvious, so if you’re planning a haircut, have it cut about a week before the shoot. Any other questions, feel free to contact me.
It’s a quick process. First, I post a “sneak peek” of my favorite image from your session on social media the day after your shoot. Then you’ll receive within 3 working days a link via email to a private online gallery where you can see all the best images from your session. Those images have been selected as the best from all the shots taken and have been processed in the standard LAM Studios processing style. Do note that the images are unretouched at this stage as that process is reserved for the final selected images. Lastly, once you’ve selected the images you would like to receive, those are fully retouched and enhanced and delivered digitally online in the format and size requested. Depending on the number of images, all finals digital files are delivered within 3 working days from selection unless otherwise requested.
Not a problem. If for any reason you’re not happy with your photos, we re-shoot or refund your money (we keep the pictures). It’s a 100% guarantee. While it’s something I’ve never had to do, the guarantee is there nonetheless. You have nothing to lose!
Yes, that is all included in the basic retouching and enhancing that all final images get. Eyes are brightened, dark circles reduced, blemishes removed, scars lightened, teeth whitened, and wrinkles and skin are softened. All within reason. You will look refreshed but still very much like you.
