Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

Why is the need to start this Team Work when there are many other photographers to shoot weddings & commercial work?

Unlike other wedding or commercial photographers we work in group we are comfortable with each other and help each other & there is good co ordination among us. These qualities will help giving good work than individual photographers. Our quality assurance, good service, research and development gives advantage of having latest & most needed equipment for any job than many individual photographers in Mumbai, that always gives high Quality output. This in other words is real professionalism. We own & use some such accessories in wedding & in commercial work that are used only by big production units in Mumbai and we are committed to keep this trend in future.

Team work is needed for wedding but why and how it is needed for Commercial work, are the wedding photographers capable of doing skilled work other than wedding photography ?

It is misconception many times, that wedding photographers do not know anything about commercial-advertising work. These days there are many photographers like us who have taken training in advertising photography, assisted senior commercial-advertising photographers & do many other assignments in addition to wedding, the images displayed on this site speak for it and need no other solid proof. Wedding photography is seasonal work and we all have enough time, skill, experience and equally good equipment including the studio lights, flash meter etc. to give very good images at a very competitive rates. Then why not offer this work also?

What are the advantages of getting the advertising & commercial work done from Team Work ?

The biggest advantage is the cost. In India many times budget is a big and important factor in giving assignments. We have and use 36 megapixel DSLRs with best optics as many other senior photographers so the quality of the images we produce is equally good at a rate that is unbeatable!! So any images shot by us can be printed & enlarged to any size.

Why are you offering the Commercial & Advertising Photography assignments at different rates; why not at a single fixed rate?

As mentioned earlier; to make things affordable to all, if the final use of the image is very small in size, there is no need to use 36 megapixel DSLR. Any other 12 mega pixel good DSLR will serve the purpose. This is very similar to the concept of Stock Photography images are offered at different rates as per the “size” of the image selected & final use. We have the same concept here.

Do you offer Designing and Photoshop improvements in the images shot by you for commercial & Advertising photography ?

No, not at present.

For commercial & Advertising work do the copyright is held by the individual photographer ?

All the images shot by the photographers and/or are displayed on our website are copyrighted work of the individual photographer.

In cases, where a photographer is expected to surrender his copyright in writing or the client does not want the images to be used for self promotion or does not want the images to be displayed anywhere, the photography fee will be more & will be conveyed accordingly.
