Having an overly mass amount of content shot at every one of the events I attend, I feel it is time to focus on the clients that truly are interested in purchasing the products. Over the last few years I have been kindly asking for minimal deposits to show commitment that the client is willing to come back after an event and proof the content. As always the Deposit is fully refundable should the client not find anything they are interested in purchasing or if I was unable to get the coverage due to the client's mechanical breakdown or any other reason. These past two weekends more than ever, I have shot a total of 7 days at 4 different events and drove well over 1,000 miles. 3 of those events were in 3 consecutive days. With that, I come back with over 10,000 images and now a whole lot of video footage.
So to cut down on unnecessary workload, I will be working on and focusing on clients that have paid a deposit. I know there are times people may not get the opportunity to make the payment prior to the event (which is preferred) so that I know who to provide coverage to. That is why I have now setup a Deposit Payment Link on the website. If you would like me to spend the time processing the images of your boat, car, truck or any other subject, I will be happy to do so after a Deposit has been made. Galleries will be made and ready for the uploading of the content but will be Password Protected until paid.
I am sure many of my clients can understand the need for this. Far too often I have done all of the work to only have people come in and screen shoot the content and post to Facebook . Not sure why they need to do that when I offer SHARE LINKS on all of my content on my website to the major social media networks.
Upon placing an order a Coupon Code is used. Once the code is placed in the box upon Check Out, the order is credit for the full amount of the Deposit.
All orders are proofed before being authorized to go forward to the Printing Process. At that time is when I inspect that all deposits have been credited properly. So if you forget to put the Code in and I know you have a Credit, I will make the adjustment manually.
