- 1. FAQ English
1. What is your style?18.11.17
I live by inspirations ideas and a good dose of perfectionism, as I like my job more and more every day. My approach will be photojournalism, pictures will be spontaneous, I will not ask you to pose or influence any moment. I will get back to my studio with pictures from every moment, very detail, every emotion you’ll have lived during your incredible wedding day.
2. Which gear will you use for our wedding?18.11.17
I will use a professional, last generation, series of tools and make sure to have a double piece of everything to avoid losing a single shot due to technical problems.
3. Do you shoot in raw or jpg format?18.11.17
Every professional who loves his works has to shoot RAW, because only the high-resolution, digital negative will guarantee a high printing quality in very format. My workflow has been tested in years of experience.
4. Do you deliver the files of the shooting?18.11.17
I will deliver them along with the album, or, in case you chose not to print it, I will deliver the pictures I selected, about 700/800. The pictures will be free of any printing rights and you can use them however you want, except giving them to other professionals without my consent.
5. What kind of photo albums do you offer?18.11.17
I have different offers, both in format and design, you can choose the specifics. I am a testimonial for Album Epoca which I consider an excellent service, providing constant renewal and professional growth to us.
I can cover every printing need, from photo albums to prestigious fine art prints.
6. What is fine art printing?18.11.17
It is, nowadays, the best and most technologically advanced means to allow photographers to give life to actual works of photographic art, certified, numbered and with the highest quality.
Fine art prints are made through special inkjet printers, able to faithfully reproduce the whole chromatic range, maintaining even the slightest detail in light and shade zones and having a deep black and a perfect white in b/w pictures.
I’ve seen your album proposal and noticed that the standard album has 50 pages, can I add more pages to my album?
I picked a standard with 50 pages (25 sheets) for my albums, but you’ll be able to add how many pages you wish to the album. Maybe I’d suggest it myself in order to achieve a better looking product.
7. Where is your studio?18.11.17
My office is in Genova, via L.A.Muratori 5, near the highway exit and the train station of Cornigliano Genoa.
It is also possible to set up an appointment in our office in Alba, near Cuneo, in Via Gardini 4,
I receive on appointment only and, if you’re unable to set one in office hours I am available to find a more suitable time whenever possible, on Sundays too.
8. How many photographers will be at our wedding?18.11.17
In all honesty, I like when I’m the only photographer, but it’s also true that having another one with me allows to take pictures that would be impossible otherwise, so I choose to be two photographers for every shooting.
9. Do you take family portraits?18.11.17
I will be available to take all the pictures you’ll want with your guests, of course the most important subjects are the spouses and I will focus my highest attention on them.
My suggestion is usually to dedicate a moment to take all the guests’ pictures you’ll want. It’s a good idea to prepare a list of the groups beforehand to be ready.
10. Do you take pre-wedding or engagement shootings?18.11.17
I consider it a very beautiful thing since it allows me and you to be more confident with each other, bringing benefits to the final result.
11. How long is your coverage time of the wedding day?18.11.17
I want my pictures to tell the story of your celebrations, so I start from the spouses’ preparation and stay until the party’s over, that’s the only way I can witness very thing happening and thus be able to take pictures of it.
12. Do you work outside of Liguria and Italy?18.11.17
I’ll gladly travel to be your photographer wherever you’ll want. Of course the travel may bring a fee for the transportation and the overnight stay if needed.
13. Is a video part of your services?18.11.17
I’ve been working with Director Studio and Francesco Lodari for a long time, my synergy with Arturo is total, his videos will allow you to keep the memories even more brightly.
14. Who will be my wedding’s photographer?18.11.17
I rarely have more than a shooting each day, but sometimes that can happen and in that case, if the spouses agree, I’ll trust a coworker to take my place. I pick professional photographers that I know and are used working with me, so that I know the job will be made with a style similar to mine and with the same professionalism and competence. Spouses will meet the photographer beforehand so that them too can trust him as I would.
15. Will you take spontaneous or staged pictures?18.11.17
Some things are of vital importance in our work: the first one is that you have to live your wedding with intensity and joy, so that you’ll be truly happy and naturally spontaneous, allowing us to take pictures without staging anything.
16. How long before the wedding can the shooting be reserved?18.11.17
We get requests starting from a year before the wedding’s day, but sometimes the shooting can be reserved a few days before. Feel free to take your time, of course, the shorter the notice, the more likely we will have another reservation. I consider the date reserved when the advance payment is made.
17. Which are your fees?18.11.17
I have different price ranges that can be discussed further, you can ask me a detailed estimate by sending me an email at: email@example.com
