You need trusted, talented freelancers
I get it. I used to be a production manager of a production company and regularly hired freelancers just like you're doing now.
As a result, I understand the pain points you might have when searching for and hiring freelancers and can make the process easier.More about Picture This Video
Frequently Asked Questions
Quick answers to common questions folks like you ask about freelance services
How far in advance do we need to book?
If it’s less than 24 hours, it’s best to call. The more in advance you book, the more likely I have availability.
Do you offer ongoing agreements, or one-time only?
I can do ongoing agreements, if it’s in my schedule in advance. Otherwise, I ask that you book per instance.
How will I know for sure that you’re available?
The booking tool is sync’d to my calendar, which contains both personal and business events, which includes weekends and evenings. If you see availability on Saturday at 3 pm, I’m available Saturday at 3 pm, and you can book me. If I have a meeting that I can get out of, that time will also show as available to you.
Can we pay by credit card?
I add a merchant’s fee for credit card payments, but can take ACH payments, if you don’t do checks, and there’s no fee with that.
What if my shoot falls through?
There is no kill fee if you give me at least 48 hours notice. Otherwise, depending on the situation, you may be assessed a kill fee of $250 if cancelled within 24-48 hours, or $300 if cancelled within 24 hours. This is because I held the date and time for you, which means other work was not able to be booked…nor was I able to make any money for that time I held for you!
Do you charge travel costs?
In the Metro DC area, there is no charge for jobs in a 25-mile radius of Fairfax, Virginia. This means our general area stretches as far north as Columbia, Maryland, as far west as Loudoun County, Virginia, as far south as Quantico, Virginia, and as far east as Prince George’s County, MD. So sorry, Baltimore, I charge mileage for jobs there.
