THE QUALITY OF THE FILMING & PHOTOGRAPHY YOU RECEIVE

WILL THEREFORE BE FAR SUPERIOR

TO THE PHOTOGRAPHS OR VIDEO LINKS ON THIS SITE.

The GH4 FILMS IN 4K (BETTER THAN HD)

and the photographs it produces are also excellent.

I have done a lot of research and the GH4 has caused a lot of excitement on filming & photography sites across the internet

& has glowing reviews!

ALL UNEDITED:

Please note all the photographs on this website, and at the picasaweb link above, are UNEDITED,

(apart from the occasional crop), so they are completely reflective of the photographs you will receive

if you choose to not get them edited.

PHOTOGRAPH EDITING:

By seeing the original photographs you can then decide if you want the photographs to be edited

and, if so, what style of editing you would like.

If I edited them, without giving you the originals, you would not have any choice in the style.

I am perfectly happy for clients to take their photographs to an editor of their choice

(or I can edit them for you -please enquire for a quote).

VIDEO-EDITING:

Video-editing: Apple-certified Final Cut Pro 6, 7 & X editor.

Further training during my TV Journalism Masters degree.

NO HIDDEN CHARGES

travel DSC03236_reduced

I give my clients ALL of the photographs that I take during photoshoots

(probably a few hundred photographs if we have worked together on a shoot for a few hours).

.

I also give clients the high-resolution files for these photographs.

.

Clients have copyright permission to use the photographs as they wish.

.

I do not charge per photograph in addition to the shoot fee.

This is what many photographers do -I do not however have any hidden charges.

WATERMARKS EXPLAINED:

My previous website domain was called www.inspiringphotography.co hence the watermarks/text on many of the photographs -they are however my photographs.

 If you need a WEDDING video, please see the ten minute highlights wedding video below.

I filmed and edited this and also produced a 45 minute version for the clients.

It was filmed in HD, and an HD copy was given to the clients, but it is uploaded here in 720 -a lower quality format for the internet and quick uploading:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CGnaLgrkzo

My new equipment will surpass the quality here.

I also filmed and edited this before I did a TV Journalism MA (it was one of my first wedding shoots).
