Frequently Asked Questions: Knoxville Commercial Photographer
How much do you charge for your commercial photography Services?
It depends on the complexity of the project. I have clients with wide-ranging needs. In a short conversation, I should be able to give you an idea of your investment.
How hard are you to schedule?
I’m a full-time professional photographer so you don’t have to worry about my other main job. Typically, I’ll be ready before you are.
What is the turnaround time for getting the images back?
It depends on the number of images as well as the complexity of the editing required. In the initial conversation, please mention any deadlines. I am a full-time commercial photographer, and I will make it work for you. Typically, it takes a week for every two hours of photography but this is very dependent on the editing requirements.
Do You Do Commercial Photography In Knoxville Only?
I am a Knoxville advertising photographer, but I also photograph on-site throughout the region, including Nashville, TN; Chattanooga, TN; Ashville, NC; the Tri-Cities (Kingsport, TN; Johnson City, TN; and Bristol, TN), and more locally, including Maryville, TN; Oak Ridge, TN; Pigeon Forge, TN; and Gatlinburg, TN.
Can You Photograph at My Location?
Yes, in most cases, I can. It takes some discussion as well as coordination to ensure I come with the right equipment for your project and location.

I Want A Unique Look To My Commercial Photos. Can You Do This?

I can accommodate both situations–I have many clients who want to be part of the process. However, other clients like the final images delivered.
