Frequently Asked Questions
Request only FAQ
How does a "Request Only" show work?
A. When I am planning to attend a show and label it "request only" this means I will only be taking photos of those who request and deposit, no one else. There are limited spots for requests.
The Request Package requires a 50% deposit and includes 10-15 digital copies of your choice. This includes in-the-ring action shots, ringside photos, candids, and ribbon photos wherever possible.
How do the deposits work?
A. A Request package is $200. At the time you purchase this package, a 50% deposit is due to reserve your spot on my list. This ensures I get pictures of you. The other 50% is to be sent before I send the proof album after the show.
How many pictures does this ensure we get?
A. Buying this package ensures AT LEAST 10 images. This number depends on the number of classes a person is entered in. The maximum included in this package is 20 images, any extra images you would like to purchase are $15 each. The more classes one enters, the more possible photos.
Galleries after the show will be sent with PROOF photos, these are NOT for reproduction/sharing until purchased. Once you choose the images you would like, a private gallery will be sent including those images once the remaining 50% of package is paid.
equine portrait faq
How does a portrait session work?
A. At a portrait shoot, I will arrive at a designated time; at this time horse and rider are expected to be ready to start shooting. We can go all over the property and do as many areas of shooting as possible! I can help instruct with poses and will most likely have an assistant to help to get the horse's ears up. After the booked amount of time is up, I will go home and begin editing!
When will we get our pictures back?
A. As a full-time student in my first year of university, school comes first. Depending on the day of the shoot pictures may be ready between 1-6 days.
How do we choose our pictures?
A. Once edited, the pictures will be sent in an online album. These are proof pictures only and are not to be shared. Then, you can send me screenshots or the photo ID numbers of the ones you would like, the number of images will vary depending on the chosen package. The final copies will be sent in a personalized album. Once you have received and paid for the final copies, you are free to reproduce them.
What form of payments do you accept?
A. I accept E-Transfer preferably, but, depending on the situation I will accept cash.
What might cause us to reschedule?
A. Living in the Maritimes, we all know how unpredictable the weather can be. Weather is definitely the main cause for rescheduling. Other things like your horses are having an off day and are too high strung, maybe you're having a bad mental health day, please let me know and we can make something work!
What can we do with the photos once they are purchased?
A. Once images are purchased, you own the rights to them. This means you can share on social media, print, etc. Although, further editing/modifications are not to be done by anyone other than me, at your request. More in-depth information and rules about this are in my contract.
