Q & A
You've got questions, I've got answers.
What is your photography style?
My photographic style is very influenced by editorial and fashion photography. With a design background, I am passionate about using creative compositions, perspectives and lighting to craft artistic imagery. Because I believe in capturing the feeling and essence of your brand, business, and being, I will work with you in advance to create a concept for your session that speaks to you. Not only will I deliver one-of-a-kind imagery, I will also act as a creative director to guide the planning, styling, posing and concept for your session, ensuring that you have a best-in-class result.
Can I post my images to my social media, blog or website?
Yes! I absolutely love when clients share the images we create together! I encourage you to share them far and wide!
But, please remember the following things when posting:
Give credit for the photographs to Flynn Design Co. by mentioning my business name or tagging me (@flynndesignco).
Do not re-edit the photographs by cropping them, filtering them, or retouching them. If you need additional edits made to a photograph, please reach out to me, so I can help you get exactly what you need.
Always use the high resolution version of the photograph. Please do not screenshot, take a photo of your computer screen, or reduce the image quality before posting.
Do you deliver every photo you shoot?
No, I do not. I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, mis-focused shots, shots with bad expressions and other images that may dilute the overall product delivery. I don’t expect you to have the expertise or the time to zoom into each image to select the one with the sharpest focus, so I spend hours doing that on my end. I promise that, with my expertise of processing millions of images each year, I will deliver a gallery filled with images you love. If there is a specific request you have while I am selecting and editing images, never hesitate to mention it to me. I am very careful to pay attention to the small details that take your images to the next level.
Do you touch up all the images in our image download?
Yes, every image you receive will be fully edited in the signature Flynn Design Co. style. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections. I also do my best to correct major blemishes and imperfections. I do not adjust body size, skin color, or other personal features. If you have specific requests for retouching, please let me know. It can be a very vulnerable thing to be in front of a camera. I do my very best to make you feel your absolute best. If there are things you are insecure about, send me a quick text, or pull me off to the side before your session. I will happily take those things into consideration while shooting and editing your gallery.
When can we expect to see the photos from our session?
Post-production for all sessions are completed 4-6 weeks after the date of the shoot. If you require the images to be completed prior to 4-6 weeks after the date of the shoot, a rush process fee will be charged. I know that can sound like a long time, but I promise I work very hard to deliver images to you just as quickly as I can. I am always working in a queue, with several galleries in progress at any given time. Your patience is so appreciated. Please keep these timelines in mind when booking your session. If you are meeting a deadline, it is best to schedule your session at least two months in advance to leave yourself plenty of time.
What rights do I have to the digital prints?
You have the right to reprint images whenever you want. However, you may not sell your images for profit or publish your images without the written consent of Flynn Design Co.
Do you provide the RAW files from my session?
Each of my packages comes with a full resolution image download. However, I do not provide RAW (unprocessed) files from shoots, because I believe in delivering a finished product. In fact, I often shoot with the end (post-produced) product in mind.
