1. Get in touch

Inquire with us with a description of your project, potential photo dates, and relevant production locations. We’ll set up a complimentary consultation in order to better understand the project needs. Every project is unique. We will build you a custom proposal.

2. Discovery

Included with every project are multiple pre-planning meetings. We will work with your production team and filming schedule to identify your still photography needs and aesthetic. We will also work with you to co-create a photo schedule for each day of production. Great images start with good planning. Site visits and location scouting prior to production days are available for any project.

3. create your story

During the project, we’ll create a large body of images including unit still photos, behind the scenes photography, and editorial style portraits. We will help tell the visual story of your production. All of our set still photographers are discrete and understand the importance of being unobtrusive while also capturing the images that you need. Final images will be edited and optimized to match your needs. Image delivery happens via a secure proof gallery and digital download link.
