Currently only available in public locations in the Spring, Summer and Autumn seasons.
How? Catherine offers images free when you agree to sign model releases or property releases. This gives Catherine permission to include the photos she takes for you in her stock photo portfolios (and yes, this means Catherine will earn income from the photos she takes for you). But it also means you get amazing photos for free!
It's a great win-win opportunity for you to get the photos you'd like at zero cost -- and for Catherine to have more images for sale in her stock photo portfolio. Catherine will share a little bit more about what stock photos are in a moment.
For the moment, here's a start of Catherine's checklist for clients if you meet Catherine at a public location for your photos, "What to Wear and What Props to Bring to Your Photo Shoot."
Weddings are different. Catherine will share more soon. What I can share at the moment, is, she does candid wedding photos. She works in the background while the lead photographer does the traditional wedding photos. So you will still need a lead photographer. But her candid photos are "paws-itively" amazing because she truly cares about capturing special moments of your day. In fact, once she starts clicking, she doesn't stop! She loves taking photos -- so you have cherished memories "fur-ever."
Stock photo agencies demand top quality from photographers. This means you can expect top quality images -- but for free -- when you agree to sign a model release.
Here are examples of what stock photo agencies expect, and why you can expect top quality photos from Catherine too:
Stock photos are images that have a commercial license available for buyers. This means anyone that needs photos can get a license to use these images on their website, presentations, magazine, marketing materials (pamphlets, brochures, and more), product packaging, billboards, ads, school projects, ebook covers, book covers, and more.
It also means it's a fun way to see how your photos are appearing around the world! You could walk through Walmart or Dollarama and see your image in the product packaging of a photo frame or other products!
Catherine's "Planting Seeds of Faith" photo has appeared on an ebook cover! See Catherine's Planting Seeds of Faith photo on the ebook cover here. Catherine has also seen her images on websites throughout the world including a Spanish-speaking wedding site!
Catherine (her hubby, Matt, and us - the "paws-itive" pets!) are located in a small town in Ontario, Canada. This means Catherine can offer her photo services in areas in, and surrounding Huntsville, Bracebridge, and Parry Sound (Ontario).
Thank you so much for all inquiries, appointments made, and for the opportunities you "paw-forward" to Catherine! Catherine is "paws-itively" grateful for it all.
