Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between a “MONUMENTAL” and a “BASIC” edit?
Do you give out all the images from the shoot?
Can I share a package with a Friend?
I’ve never done a photoshoot before, is there anything I need to know?
No you do not need to be a model or know anything. We will walk you through the shoot, pose you and (most importantly) make you comfertable. It will be a fun shoot.
What does artistic treatment include?
Do I get prints of the photos? Or is that extra?
Prints are extra. We put a lot of work into every edit with the idea that the images will be displayed. They are best viewed in a large format.
How much is it for additional regular edit as well as the Monumental style edits?
Additional regular edits are $100 each, Basic Monumentals are $1500 and Custome Monumentals are $4000.
What’s a BASIC MONUMENTAL edit?
A basic monumental is what we call an edit that only requires Couple aggregated elements to create one end product. As an example, fire and smoke with a different background.
Do you work from supplied images?
No. To get the best quality images (like something you would want to display/frame). When using other photogs photos, it is limiting when it comes to the concept and you run into copyright issues. When we do the shoot, there is usually a concept in mind and therefore we are able to pose the model appropriately and the lighting is very crucial to the look and feel to achieve a masterpiece. When it comes to compositing in elements, we shoot them after so that the lighting matches. Most importantly, when you are doing the shoot and talking with the model. A lot of the time ideas start flooding in and the resulting image is a reflection of the model themselves. This makes for a meaningful masterpiece
Do you have access to a gym space?
Is this a home studio?
Do you help with the wardrobe or have costumes?
About how long would it take to edit photos?
Do I need to come up with poses?
How long would it take us to edit the photos?
That would depend on which package you chose and how quickly you give us your choices. For Regular edits, it usually takes two to three days. For a Basic monumental it usually takes one to two weeks. For a Custom monumental, it usually takes about a month.
I am wondering if the clients who usually get your photoshoots done are mostly just coming right off of fitness competitions?
We get asked this question often. We would recommend doing the shoot when you feel you are in the best condition to get the best resulting image. So if your abs are visible, you have good definition then it will translate very well with our lighting. In our photography, we do not add muscle or modify the body to make you look bigger than you are. We let the lighting show the work that went into creating a sculptured physique.
