SHOOT FAQ

How many photos can I get in the end? When can I get these photos?

We will give you at least 30 - 70 good photos every 1 hour of shooting. In the vast majority of cases, you'll end up with much much more. 

 

You can see & download all the original photos (no editing, with culling) within 5 days after shoot, and download your selected photos (enhancement edit, full size) within 10 days after your photo selection. In most cases, the delivery time will be shorter !

Do you provide printed photos or photo products ?

 

Generally, we do not provide printed photos or photo products. The photos we give to customers are digital photos, downloaded via Google Drive, or copied to the USB provided by the customer.

What is the recommended time for outdoor shooting?

To get the soft light to take good pictures, the recommended time for outdoor shooting is as below:

  • on sunny days and at open area such as beach, late afternoon is a good time to shoot

  • on sunny days and under big shady areas such as under big trees in the park, any time will do

  • on cloudy days, any time will do

So, it is suggested that photographer and customer first set a date, then to determine the exact shooting time a few days in advance according to the weather forecast.

What if the weather is bad on the day of outdoor shooting ?

Photographer and customer confirm the exact shooting time a few days in advance. If the weather is bad according to the weather forecast, shooting date can be rescheduled free of charge.
