What we do vs what you see us do

A car is simple. You unlock it, you get in it, you start it, you drive it. Cars a simple, right? Well, we don’t make our own cars – can you imagine doing that? We don’t do the maintenance and service of it ourselves (usually). Can you imagine replacing the gaskets? Fixing a transmission gear issue? So, what about photography?

What you see us do

  • You order our service
  • Describe what you need
  • We photograph it
  • You receive the images
  • You are happy
