Frequently asked questions
Do you Travel?
I definitely do travel. I love it!
I also do not charge for Travel in Gauteng. Even as far as Potchefstroom. I have covered a wedding in India, Israel and Mozambique.
So I am on the lookout for other couples who want to get married at a remote location and they need a photographer!
Do you shoot with an assistant or 2nd shooter?
I prefer to work on my own and only get an assistant to carry my equipment, because every photographer has his own signature when it comes to photos, and my clients has paid for my work. Not someone else's work.
I normally get a 2nd shooter in when a wedding is fairly large. If the wedding is between 150-220 people then I want to make sure I get all the faces captured, so for this a 2nd photographer is super handy.
I also do ask my clients if they need a 2nd photographer, for instance if they want the bride's expression as well as the groom's expression captured while walking down the isle, which is only possible if there is two photographers.
I have a lot of friends in the wedding industry, so it is quite easy to ask someone to assist me.
What equipment do you use?
I use two FULL FRAME Nikon bodies
with the following lenses
- Nikon 24-70mm f2.8L
- Nikon 85mm f1.4D
- Sigma 35mm 1.4 ART (AMAZING)
- Sometimes, depending on the requirements, I rent equipment. Recently I rented the Sigma 50mm f1.4 ART which is an amazing lens.
How long have you been in the industry?
I have doing photography for at least 8 years, and I did Wedding Photography part time since 2012, but full time since 2014. I have also worked on a few assignments as part of Alexandersmith Photography's brand since 2012. (see www.alexandersmith.co.za)
Do you do Prints?
Yes off course! Prints are not part of my standard packages, but I am happy to provide a quote should you want a Canvas or large print done!
