Pre-Production is the preparation and planning stage of a project.

We start by talking with you about your needs:

  • What will be the main use of the images? Additional uses?
  • What's more important: budget or quality?
  • Have you made a shot list?
  • What is your deadline?

Next we talk property specifics:

  • Where is the property and what is it's compass orientation?
  • Who is the onsite contact? What hours are they there?
  • What is the best time to shoot?

From this input, we can begin to prepare an estimate and propose a shooting schedule.
