Frequently Asked Questions of Cabo’s most popular photographer
Have you covered events like mine before?
I have worked in this area for over twenty-five years and have covered almost every kind of event imaginable.
I work with all the major hotels, covering groups, conventions, weddings, family groups, events, beach olympics, and private functions.
I also work with all the local wedding planners, destination management companies, real estate companies, and many restaurants. I will cover your event completely and professionally.
How do you charge for your services?
Fees are charged by the hour and I shoot generously. You are not limited to a specific number of images. We take as many images as needed to cover your event completely.
Will Peter actually be taking the photos?
If I am available when you first make contact, it will be me doing the work. If I am not available I will tell you up front and arrange for an associate to cover the event. I.E. You will know from day one. No surprises.
When will I receive my images?
Usually 48 hours is needed in order to turn the images around, however frequently deliveries are made the next day. If rush service is specifically required, a flat $100.00 service charge is made.
Video can take up to a week to process, so we recommend you budget an extra $100.00 in order to have video sent by courier. It is far too important to send by mail!
What equipment do you use?
Top of the line Canon cameras, lenses and flashes and I carry two of everything. My current digital camera operates at 22 million pixels and can take up to 8 frames a second.
Can you take some black and white photos?
As we now live in a digital world, the image is taken in color. If you wish to adjust images to black and white, sepia or any other shad of your choice it can be done at the lab by computer. You will love the results.
Can you provide a videographer?
Yes. We work with independents and will gladly coordinate this service for you. Please advise us of this in your request as there are a few questions that the videographer will need answered in order to creat the best video for you.
How can we reach you?
I have an office, a secretary, an answereing machine, telephones, cellular phones, fax and email. You can always reach me. Please view my contact information or send your request form now!
Can I reach any of your recent customers for a referral?
I have numerous testimonials and will gladly pass any on to you. You can also click here for the testimonial page.
What time of day is best for my event?
As light is the single most important factor in photography, you should give this serious consideration when scheduling your event.
If you are planning a ‘sunset’ event, we recommend that it be at least an hour before sunset. You will capture more of the beauty of Los Cabos and people will still remember the event as a sunset occasion.
Can you help me plan my event?
As I have lived here for several years poeple frequently ask questions that are definitely outside the realm of photography. We always try to be helpful; however, we are not event planners. But we recommend you use one as they will save you a lot of time and help make your event stress free. We will galdly recommend one as we work with several and know their services will make your event wonderful!
How do I secure and pay for your services?
Once you estimate how long you will need my services, I ask you to send a 50% deposit to secure the date of your choice. The balance of funds can be handled by cash or travelers checks when I deliver my work to you.
How do I know how long I will need your services?
Every event, group, family and wedding is different, so this is hard to answer. The actual timing is up to you and depends on the scope of the event, location and of course budget, but on average…
- Family shots usually take about one hour
- 2 to 10 People – Usually require 1 to 2 hours
- 10 to 20 People – About 2 or 3 hours
- 20 to 50 People – 3 to 4 hours
- Over 50 People – 6 or 8 hours is not uncommon
Can you make me look younger, skinnier, prettier?
I am a photographer, not a miracle worker, but will try to help you enjoy the process and if you are happy you will appear great!
