If you are an architect, designer, home builder or selling a home, professional photography is a vital investment. Marketing can be an expensive venture but allocating a budget for professional photography ensures your marketing dollars are getting you the return on investment you need while your website is getting the traffic it deserves. Professional photography isn’t a luxury anymore--it’s an absolute necessity in today's visual society and will help connect you with your audience in a memorable way. 
 

-  Q U A L I T Y   A T T R A C T S   Q U A L I T Y  - 

If your company adheres to the highest standards, whether in the goods you sell or the services you provide, it only makes sense to have the visual representation be of the highest quality. Unfortunately, when a company’s imagery does not communicate its brand in a professional way, potential customers may subconsciously relate this to the company itself. Professional photography should be considered part of core branding.

Have a friend with a nice camera? It's understandable that it can be tempting to ask friends or family with a nice camera for help with images for your business, but professional photography doesn’t have to break the bank! Our professional solutions will absolutely provide a return on your investment.

Katie combines traditional field techniques with modern digital capture and post processing techniques to create photographs that not only document the space, but that also tell a story and depict spaces in an artistic manner. Each shot is styled and lighted in a manner that is appropriate to the space and compliments your design to show texture, volume, richness and thoughtfulness. Katie uses both natural and artificial light where appropriate to artistically capture indoor and outdoor spaces. Every single image is meticulously crafted with expert attention to detail.

All of Katie’s architectural and interior design photo shoots include a digital workstation that shows the photos as they are made in real time. This feature allows for collaboration between the photographer and client, and also ensures that images are created exactly as the client has intended. Together, we will discuss the best features of the project and will work together to create your story and showcase the space to its fullest potential.

EDITING - All images will include basic color correction and perspective editing. For all composited images, detailed post-processing techniques will be used to blend multiple exposures and lighting highlights into one beautiful image.

One free round of editing is included with every shoot*.  Additional edits can include: the removal of "code" items (i.e. sprinkler heads, exit signs, floor cores); clean up wall blemishes; removal of minor debris, reflections, loose wires, etc. Please make specific requests prior to or during the shoot so we can try and solve the problem on-site if possible. (If a request is made to remove an item that could have easily been moved during the shoot, extra editing fees may incur based on complexity.)

For more complicated edits, additional fees will apply due to the time commitment needed to complete them. Examples include (but aren't limited to): removal of major elements (like signage, people, furniture, cars, etc.), rebuilding or replacing any structural elements, removing excessive power lines or other exterior distractions, changing colors or textures, cleaning up excessive wall or ceiling damage, etc. Visit the Before & After page to view some examples of extensive editing. 

DIGITAL PROCESSING - After initial editing, the photographs are then digitally processed and uploaded to a private client proofing gallery. Clients are encouraged to give feedback or identify any retouching requests before final delivery.

FINAL IMAGE DELIVERY – Upon receiving the final payment, all clients will receive web-ready and high-resolution finished photographs as digital files sent via Dropbox where they can be downloaded. Final images will be in JPEG format. TIFF files are available upon request, but we will never send RAW files. Katie Bricker Photography will always retain full ownership and copyright privileges of all images, but clients are free to use these files, short of selling them for profit or sharing with a 3rd party. Read more about our open license.

* Additional retouches requested after the first round will be billed at an hourly rate.
