• Do you have WhatsApp?
Yes I have WhatsApp but I only give it out on the day before the photo shoot. Before that we will have to correspond with emails. That way I can print out the messages and what we have decided.
I am dealing with several photo shoots and it would be chaos and perhaps some double bookings if I only used WhatsApp.
• Surprise engagement help
The first step would be for you to look at my website. I have written a page on scenerios for a surprise engagement. For locations, click on the category for surprise engagements on my blog page. This is a good starting point.
• Where should be the best location for proposal?
Please look at this website for ideas. Several locations are closed during the winter months. Others might be fence off and cattle grazing on them. It's a good idea to give me an idea of what you are looking for (ie: lake, river, mountain etc.). We can choose the location a day or two before the event when we have a better idea of the weather conditions.
I do get a few time wasters asking me lots of questions and pumping me for ideas. Then they don't use me. I have become secretive regarding locations. Thanks fin advance or your understanding.
• How shall I pay you?
Cash please for any job under CHF. 500.- at the end of the photo shoot. We can always visit an ATM. Please let me know when this is not possible.
• Can you tell me the typical weather conditions for my visit?
Sorry. It's impossible to predict the weather because of the temperature on top of the high mountains and the cold water in the lakes.
• Do you have a Plan B for bad weather?
Plan B would be to cancel! We can change the days for better weather. It will be your decision to go ahead with the photo shoot or cancel. I can take pictures in the rain.
• Does the location get crowded?
Some locations do get busy like the Harder Kulm viewing platform. It also depends on the time of the year. I cannot guarantee that we will be completely alone.
• Do you know any one else that you can recommend? Your prices are reasonable and everyone else wants ridiculous amounts of money that I just don’t have!
(Actual e-mail from Dayal) Unfortunately I will be in England during Dayal's visit. I can't recommend anyone else. Please don't leave it until the last minute to contact me. A month earlier and I would not have booked my flight.
• Sprechen Sie Deutsch?
Ich spreche Deutsch, Englisch und Norwegisch
• CANCELLATION FEE?
There is no cancellation fee. But beware, a couple told me that another photographer in the region demanded a cancellation fee before they contacted me.
