FAQ General Event Photography Questions

What type of photography do you specialise in?

We specialise in event photography services in Sydney for Corporate, Local business and Government. We also shoot professional headshots and small intimate weddings. We work directly with many small and large well known Brands. We also have many great working relationships with Marketing and Event Managers.

Which areas in Sydney do you provide photography services?

We provide photography services in inner Sydney, Lower North Shore, Eastern Suburbs and in the City of Sydney CBD. We’re based in Surry Hills NSW, right on the City Centre doors step. Central inner Sydney is our local neighbourhood and is free of travel charges.

Who is my contact prior and during the event?

Orlando Sydney likes to personally call every client prior to the event or shoot for a quick chat, we believe personal service works better in person. At the event the head photographer will be your main contact point and direct any second shooters. We’ll advise who the head photographer is for your event during the pre event phone call and emails.

What are your office hours?

Sunday 10:00 am–4:00 pm
Monday 7:00 am–6:00 pm
Tuesday 7:00 am–6:00 pm
Wednesday 7:00 am–6:00 pm
Thursday 7:00 am–6:00 pm
Friday 7:00 am–6:00 pm
Saturday 9:00 am–5:00 pm

How do we mitigate technical issues at the event?

Photographers have at least two professional camera bodies, several lenses and a multitude of accessories specific to your shoot. Well maintained equipment is very reliable these days so it is very unlikely there will be an impact to capturing great photos at your event.

FAQ Photo Delivery

How are the photos delivered?

The photos are delivered via a private secure download link. The link can be enabled to be shareable with your full event and media team.

Do you process the photos?

Yes, we apply all the standard colour grading, cropping out distracting elements, tone and sharpness for you. We always curate the photos to our style which delivers you a consistent look and feel of the album.

How many photos will I get?

It depends on what type of booking. Portraits and headshots will have less quantity. The larger the event and with a great number of hours booked the higher the quantity of photos. On average a 4 hour event will have approx 200 photos. NB. this always varies.

Do you keep a backup copy if I lose my photos?

A secure archive is kept for 3 months just in case.

What happens if I lose my images after 3 months time?

After 3 months it depends on how much new data has been added to the archives so no definitive time after that. There’s a possibility we may still have a copy in our photo archives. But it depends on whether it’s just after a few months or years. Computers are very reliable these days so hopefully you won’t have any technology mishaps. Please get back in touch anytime down the track and we’re happy to have a look.

Will my photos appear on your website?

We only use a very small selection of photos that are relevant on our pages and online profiles. If the images are used it is for self promotion. We never sell them to stock library’s and the like. We may at our discretion create a blog post of your event and amplify and promote your brand or cause to our audience.

What are the image specifications?

One set of files will be delivered in hi res, which is great for your archiving and safe keeping. Some people use them as they are for printing. You will also receive a set of web resolution files ready for social sharing.

Photography copyright or image usage rights

The standard rights we offer are perpetual (lifetime) rights. You can use the jpg photos for promotion in any medium you choose. Stock library, competition or reselling excluded without permission from us. These rights to not automatically apply to vendors, suppliers or venues, we must approve it in writing first. If this is you, contact us to discus.

FAQ Booking and Payments

For Booking a photographer, what information do you need?

The information we need as a minimum is, When, Where, and How many hours you need a photographer. Also the type of event you are managing. Eg – Conference, Gala and Awards dinner, trade show, product and brand launch. Headshots, portraits or if it’s a wedding etc.
