Do you do photo re-touching?
Yes. Hacker first learnt to re-touch in the dark room before translating these skills across to Photoshop when it became the industry standard. This means he has a deep rooted, practical understanding in how to select, colour grade and re-touch each image to get the best from it during the post-production process.
How many photographs do I get from a photoshoot?
It depends on the needs of each project and complexity of the post-production which we'll discuss when putting together the client proposal and brief. Hacker will be clear in the proposal how many photographs you can expect from the shoot and how long they will take to edit.
Do you have a studio?
Yes. We have use of a number of Bristol based studios ranging in size and cost to suit any budget. Included in the studio price is also lighting and all the appropriate equipment so your shoot looks professional and high-end.
Is hair and make-up or stylists included in your packages?
No, but once Hacker understand the needs of the shoot he'll liaise with his network of professional hair and make-up artists and stylists to develop ideas for the shoot and agree their costs. He'll include their fees upfront in the proposal so there are no surprises.
