Travel costs: 15-30 mi. $30, 30-60 mi. $60 and 60-100 mi. $100 which covers traveling expenses for the team. Beyond the 100 mi. radius please contact me for a custom quote.
Phantasy Photography™ at present does shoots at a studio in Pantego and Hurst, Texas. Most big cities have studios to rent if you’re out of town or state. Note there could be an extra cost.
On location can be nearly anywhere except private property. At the beach, in a town/city, hotel room, a park, etc. Permits needed or other unforeseen costs for shoot will be additional.
If you prefer the comfort of your own home or a friend’s, we’ll come to you! The in-person consultation will give me the opportunity to see where windows are, what natural light is available at what time of day, if portable lights are needed, best areas to shoot in, etc. to put on your Phantasyboard™.
Our Touch packages start at $999. A non-refundable retainer fee of $250 and a signed contract secures your session date, hair/makeup and studio. Your invoice must be paid in full 1 week before the session.
Our payment plans require a $500 down (instead of $250) non-refundable fee to book in-person consultation, hair/makeup, book session date and studio. The balance can be spread over 3 – 12 months installments.
These installments are non-refundable and once paid in full you’ll have access to your Fine Art edited images and the products that come with your Touch session or for purchase.
Installments can be paid via PayPal, Zelle or check. Zelle is available with most bank accounts, whereas you send money to us from your account or you can use the Zelle App. If you prefer paying via check, you can send it to us.
Phantasy Photography offers prints, canvases, acrylic, and photo books.
You’ll receive a price list of all available products in the email you receive after booking your in-person consultation.
Quality, quality, quality! Sure we could do a bunch of shoots each month. Yet we believe running clients like cattle will surely effect quality and hinder the overall experience.
We book 2 months out, with the consultation 1 month out, to ensure our clients have our complete attention and in the end loved their experience!
A new word created by Phantasy Photography™ which is similar to a graphics or film/TV storyboard. After your in-person consultation, the team will build a Phantasyboard™ specialized for you personally. We will use it the day of your session without the need to figure out hair, makeup, type of shots, etc. on the spot. Preparation is paramount for a successful session!
You’ll find details about the Phantasyboard™ under the MORE tab.
The day of your Touch session is absolutely about you! Our complete focus needs to be on you and yours on us to ensure a fun, successful photo shoot. Any distractions can effect the outcome… Thus we ask that you are alone during the session.
Exception: We will do a couples shoot with your husband / partner in your home or a friend’s. Contract and releases must be signed by everyone involved. Extra charge ~ $199/hr and up to 5 images
Your privacy is of the utmost importance! Unless you sign a release for Phantasy Photography™ to use your images on our website, for marketing purposes or photography contests, only you will see the final images. And we will NEVER sell any image!
The private online gallery is password protected and we do everything possible to ensure no one else sees them. I am the only one who will have access to images and work with printers who use discretion that I trust.
The only digital files we offer are the social media ready images that come with your Touch Phantasyshoot™ and they will have the Phantasy Photography™ logo placed on them.
NOTE: All images shot by Charly are registered with the US Copyright Office. A client cannot copy, manipulate, print, sell or use any of their images without Charly’s expressed written permission. You have permission only use files given to you on your social media platforms to show them off to friends / family.
Editing images to have a creative Fine Art appearance takes more time than doing quick batch edits. Your private gallery should be ready within 2 weeks. If you purchased the A La Carte – Advanced Photoshop Edit on an image, it might be a bit longer depending on difficulty. Rest assured other images will be posted w/i 2 weeks. Again I’m very particular about the final results.
Breath and don’t panic! The sheets you receive will answer most of your questions. The Phantasy Photography™ team will provide answers at your in-person consultation! We understand other questions may come up at a later time and can address them via email.
Yes you did! There is a shopping spree at a local store for the amount listed on your Touch Phantasyshoot™. Or you take the amount of the spree off your session.
