5. Photo minimum and turnaround: 2 photos in 1 week vs. 5 photos in 3-4 weeks.
All the above mentioned works into the photo minimum and the turnaround. First off, the minimum makes the time worthwhile for everyone. It is not worth an hour of futzing around with my equipment, using my studio, blocking out my day, and doing a photo shoot for just one image. A 5 photo minimum ensures you have choices. The two photo minimum for RF is just a reduction of the same concept to fit the 30 minute, minimal set up, but I had a number of clients in one day to make it worth my while. Additional photos take additional time. If you have a tight turnaround, you need to communicate those needs when scheduling your shoot and if it's sooner than what I offer, it requires additional payment since that's my time not being spent on other work.
Be sure to communicate your needs. What are these photos for? Do you require a wardrobe change? Do you need a full body portrait? When do you need the photos delivered by? Is that within my turn-around time or not? How do you feel about post-processing? Are there aspects of your features that you absolutely do not want altered? Are there aspects of your features you do not want photographed? Do you have a side preference? All of these questions are things I need to know, and will happily ask you about, but it's helpful for me if we can communicate more clearly.
Ultimately, RF is a fast and fun way of getting some promotional material on a budget, but it does keep to the old platitude of "you get what you pay for." I hope this post better explains what you're paying for. If you are on a tight budget, please do not hesitate to say so because we can likely work together to determine a payment plan.
