Package Details and Investment

Images with Impact

You will receive exquisite and unique images that capture the skill, emotion, and memory. The final results are of the highest quality so you can enjoy and share with your friends and family. Every session, team and athlete is unique to me and is treated with great detail before, during and following the session.

Tailored Session

I plan every session in detail and no two are alike. I start with a basic consultation with your team representative. Determining time and location that works for the team and for quality session lighting is first determined. Next any particular ideas or shots the team is looking for and any other special requests.

Then I study the location and the ambient light at the time of the session. With that I plan the session and lighting equipment to bring.

I will need between 15-30 minutes at the location prior to the session to prepare and 30 minutes afterwards to tear down.

High Quality

I pay particular attention to details and every session is unique. My focus is on quality with attention to detail on every aspect. I have a significant investment in my skill, my equipment, software and post production vendors. All equipment and software is professional grade.

The process I follow from the initial capture in the camera through to the computer and then to my professional photo lab is color calibrated. Satisfaction is guaranteed with any product or print ordered through fotochuk. However any prints done elsewhere with the digital images cannot be guaranteed.

Digital Files

Digital files will be emailed to you in the size of each print ordered for personal use. Available for regular photos only, Special Effect and Art Montage images are not provided digitally.

On-line Gallery

Once images are ready, the email addresses collected from the model release will be informed the gallery is up. Facebook digital images will be available for download and prints/product orders are also available from the gallery. The Gallery is online for a limited time.

Flexible Print Options

Every parent wants something different from their photos. Some just want the default package with the photographers choice of images. Some would prefer the default package but with their choice of photos. Some want something completely different.

With such varied expectations, we have come up with a solution to satisfy everyone:

  • Galleries are setup with a 2 week time limit.
  • Each player gets a coupon code that expires after 2 weeks for the value of their photo credit/default package.
  • Players place an order on the gallery for any combination of print, product, package and the photo credit is applied on checkout.
  • Fotochuk will fulfill the default package and make the photo selections for the package for any players who did not use their photo credit after two weeks.

Limitations

Model release forms required 2 days prior to session date. Anyone without the signed form cannot partake in the photo session.

There is no guarantee of print quality except for print product orders placed with fotochuk.
