Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, if a day or time is available in the schedule, it can be booked!
I have my own gear covering most Videography needs. If something additional is required, I will rent it and add the cost to the Invoice.
My rate is fixed on hours(half-day or full-day) and gear involved, meaning that they depend on several factors:
– how many hours/days of services are needed?
– is there a need for filming, video editing or both?
– how much gear is involved?
– is the filming local in Vancouver and surrounding cities?
– how simple or complex is the video editing required?
For an accurate Project Estimate please contact me and describe your video/photo needs in as much detail as possible.
Yes, the minimum is $400 for video (half-day minimum) and $200 for photo (basic photoshoot minimum). Any extra hours or gear will increase the production value and therefore the cost of the Project.
Yes, to protect the Client and the Videographer. Contracts ensure requirements and goals are clearly communicated and documented between the two parties, as well as provide legal peace of mind in exceptional circumstances.
I am operating as a registered legal business in Canada, and as such am obligated by the CRA to charge 5% GST on Projects. This money goes to the government, it does not stay in my pocket. GST is standard business tax for any well established business.
Yes, once you have communicated your video needs, I will let you know the cost rate to make it happen. If your budget is not accommodating for the cost of the Project, then I can re-estimate the Project based on your communicated budget and subtract features and production value to match the budget. If the budget is met but you feel too much production value is sacrificed, then this is an indicator that you might need a student or beginner Videographer instead of a professional.
I operate in British Columbia, mainly in the Greater Vancouver Area. However, for Projects covering travel expenses and accommodations, I offer my services anywhere in Canada. I am based in Maple Ridge, but have worked in several cities: Vancouver, Burnaby, Delta, Mission, Hope, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Langley, Surrey, Whistler, New Westminster, Chilliwack, Richmond, Abbotsford, Pitt Meadows, Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Duncan, Kelowna, Penticton.
Yes, I offer single-camera as well as multi-camera live-streaming and live-switching.
I am a solo entrepreneur that has connections with other professional Videographers and can assemble a team to service larger Projects.
