What does a professional photography service include?

Whether you’ve got a special occasion coming up or just want to capture a moment in time, hiring a photographer means you can relax knowing it’s all taken care of. The inclusions and what happens during your photography session will depend on the type of services you need:

Special occasion photography

Professional photography is a non-negotiable for special occasions like weddings, parties, and events these days. Your photographer will discuss the ins and outs of your event with you ahead of time to make sure they’re in the right place at the right time. They’ll get set up before guests arrive and capture all the important moments, leaving you free to enjoy the day.

Portrait photography

Need to find a family photographer or baby photographer near you? Portraits can become treasured memories that show how people have changed and grown over time - and can make wonderful family gifts. You can even find an experienced animal photographer to capture your pets’ portraits or include them in the family photo. Your portrait photographer will ensure everyone is posed and clearly visible, then take a variety of shots.

Fashion and product photography

A specialist fashion photographer or product photographer near you can help with the right lighting, camera, and know-how. They’ll help style, arrange, and edit your images to help you stand out from the crowd, grow your following, and sell more products. 

Drone photography

Aerial photography has revolutionised photography and video footage - these days you can get amazing group photos, property shots, and aerial views of just about anything. Whether you’re in real estate, construction, or tourism… or you’re planning your wedding, a pro drone photographer will use a high-quality drone camera to expertly capture the perfect aerial shot. 

Photo editing and retouching

Photo editing is where the magic happens, but it can be time-consuming if you’re not a pro. A photo editor can help with retouching photos from your photoshoot, photoshop out an ex from your family photos, or turn an average photo into a masterpiece with the right lighting adjustments. They’ll use programs like photoshop and lightroom to make the best photos from your photoshoot even better.

Take high quality drone videos


Amaroo ACT 2914, Australia

13th Jan 2023

I am an engineer that has been tasked with providing materials to produce graphical content for a website. I tried to take some videos with my drone whilst I was on site the other day but they did not turn out the way I'd hoped. I am not located in the ACT, so I need some help from a local to go to this public site, and grab some better video for me! Shouldn't take longer than an hour. Negotiable on price. No cash jobs. This is a legitimate business transaction so an ABN is required. - Due date: Before Monday, 16 January 2023

Kay is a very clean and professional operator. He asked the right questions to make sure he understood the task, laid out the terms in his offer, and then travelled to site and autonomously carried out the work in a really efficient manner. The end result was high quality and exactly what I needed. Very Impressive, Kay. Thankyou. I'll be using you again.
