The highest standards of photography are the key to reflecting our subjects in the best way. Successful outcomes depend on the Casamento method of good planning, warm-hearted collaboration and post-production finesse.
A discussion about the what, where and why of the commission.
What is the purpose of the photograph? Together we listen to what story you want to tell and how you would like to use it.
Where is the best location? Decided upon, we research in advance into the aesthetic merits, health and safety issues, and how to minimise disturbance of the chosen site for a carefully scheduled, smooth run on the day.
Why is the photograph significant? We value communication with the client so we can align with the deeper outcomes that are desired from the shoot. A high quality photograph can be an invaluable re-positioning for a business; it shows people that they are valued and, if carried out with style, can enhance relationships in workplaces or between family members by creating precious moments of togetherness.
The photo shoot on the day, informed by discussion and clear briefs, is a collaborative and enjoyable event. Together we create a well-run, time-efficient, non-intrusive and calm experience that has a beneficial effect on all involved. Alert to the changing needs of the client, Casamento Photography is flexible enough to capture the significant moment that makes a photograph attract acclaim.
Contemporary technology allows us to continue to work with you after the shoot, as regards numbers, sizes, uses and specific retouching requirements for your images. We can post directly onto social media when fast turnaround is essential via wireless transfer of images from camera to mobile device.
The client remains involved in the selection of images through our provision of an online web gallery. Alternatively, you are invited to a viewing session either onsite or at our Melbourne office on the big screen. Then we deliver high resolution, carefully-tailored digital images via email or download link.
When hard-copy prints are required, we offer the highest quality archival prints and offer a variety of framing options.
We provide an accurate quote prior to commencing assignments, based on a thorough understanding of the brief, and of the intended value of the images delivered.
Considerations include pre-production (consultation, styling, wardrobe, location scouting), the scope of photography, image usage and post-production (selecting, retouching and enhancing images). Other factors include travel, hiring photography assistants, stylists, studio hire and equipment hire.
We value clear communication and provide a photography brief template to assist in prior preparation and planning. We encourage phone conversations or meetings if time permits, to discuss and plan the details of each assignment.
