Policies

Quality

This manifesto is based on a set of beliefs viz. honesty, quality and reliability. If you value these above money, this service is for you. What does that mean?

               

Trust & Honesty: If I am not honest and trustworthy, I am nothing. I don't hesitate to go an extra mile or two to give you the best possible results. Similarly I expect my customers to be honest and trustworthy with me too, it is a give and take.

I say: 

  • Yes to trustworthy, honest and open communication

  • No to aggressive negotiation tactics, you told me so, I told you so discussions, no to volume discounts, 'we will get another shoot done by you' assurances, no to tricks and no gimmicks. Customers who attempt any of these will get a 'No' from me, a full refund if any advance is paid and the shoot will be cancelled if already booked.

Single, Fixed, Transparent and Take-it-or-Leave-it Prices: Clearly written prices with no hidden charges. Right from the get go you will know what you will pay and what you will get for the price you pay. There will be no tricks, gimmicks, discounts, bargains, negotiations or demand based price changes from my side, guaranteed! 

 

One price for a given service at any given time, period. That's not to say prices don't get revised from time to time.  You will get what you paid for, whether you ask for it or not. Again, I never make verbal assurances.

On-time Service & Timely Payment: Be it arrival at the shoot location*, delivery of photos, no need for follow-up or reminders. Similarly full payment (less advanced if any paid) to be realized immediately after the shoot and before the delivery of photos.

Privacy

This is not a legal document but I assure you this is better. You can't imagine how much I hate receiving phone calls from real estate agents, cards/loan offers, donations, insurance fraudsters, and yes, Bajaj Finance (I wish this company goes bankrupt and shutters tonight for ever!).

I will never spam you no matter what, actually I don't have time for that bullshit and have better things to do with my life.  If you consider availing my service, I will message you to give you enough information to help you decide. 

Whereas if it doesn't work out, I will simply forget it.

I don't offer bargains or discounts or deals of any kind

Delaying tactics don't work with me either

Policies are non negotiable

I refuse to negotiate, period.

I may use some headshots and portraits on my portfolio page unless you ask me not to.

I collect basic information about you to make sure I only spend time responding to genuine enquiries. 

The data you provide in the enquiry form will be used to do basic validation of the genuineness of the enquiry with a generous benefit of the doubt (I have no interest otherwise).

However, if you are not willing to share enough information about yourself for us to move forward, I wish you good luck in your search for a portrait photographer which is not going to be me.

Your data (your name, phone number and email id) will only be used to interact with you and that's that. I never send unsolicited communication ever! I have no time for any bullshit! 

Sharing

If you want to share a lot of photos with your family members and friends without sending them over WhatsApp, here's a beautiful solution for that. Google Photos (website and app) provides a simple and effective way of letting all your family members and friends see and like the photos also allows them to upload photos they took on the occasion. This is especially useful if there are multiple photos taken at an event like a birthday party, anniversary, engagement, or any kind of get together where many people (including me, a professional photographer) have a bunch of photos they want to share with everyone who attended the party. Here's a step by step guide on how to do just that.

Google Photos App on Smartphones/Mobiles

On your smartphone / mobile, install and login to the app Google Photos to get started. If you can't see the app, click to download (android | iPhone) and install the app.
