Frequently Asked Questions

What are your rates?

As all jobs have different requirements, so the pricing structure varies from job to job. If you would like a quote for your contract then please give me a call or use the Request a Photographic Quote page.

What hours do you work?

As a photographer my hours are dictated by when the light is good and when the weather is conducive to photography. Working from dawn to dusk or later if low light or night shots are required is not uncommon.

How many interior photographs can we expect in a normal day?

It should be possible to produce 20-30 interior images in a day to choose from (usually each image has several different options e.g. people in shot, set dressing, lighting changes etc).

How many non-verified photographs can we expect in a normal day?

On a perfect day, where the locations are not spread over a large geographic area you can expect up to 10-15 unique images (usually each image has several different options e.g. lighting, content, car / bus / cyclist / mum with push chair, etc in shot to choose from).

How many Verified Views can we expect?

Verified Views tend to be more widely geographically spread and take longer to get to, so if everything works out well then 5-7 photographs per 8 hour day can be expected.

Who owns the copyright on the images?

The entire copyright of all images produced is retained by Ian Humes at all times throughout the world and Ian Humes asserts both his moral right to be identified as the author of his work and the right to a credit is asserted in accordance with sections 77 and 78 of Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. On receipt of payment the Client is given unrestricted reproduction rights for the supplied images.

To what size can we print the photographs?

Without any interpolation, just using the data that the camera produces (5632 pixels x 3750 pixels) you can print an A2 image at 240 pixels per inch. With interpolation you could easily produce an image that is A0.

What is interpolation?

Interpolation is a way of intelligently scaling up an image so that a lower resolution image file can be printed at a larger size.

What files do you supply us with?

Proof Images:

A password protected page on this website containing the following

  1. The proof images displayed on the website in medium resolution
  2. and on request...
  3. A PDF album of the proof images (small low res images for easy emailing, password locked on request)
  4. A zipped Web album of the proof images (medium resolution files for sharing over a network, zip file password locked on request)

the first option allows you to view the images over the internet, the second and third options allow you to share the files within your company.

Final Images:

The final delivered image set is made up of your choice of the following items

  1. A large 16-bit TIFF file that is ready to print at A2 and is around 120Mb
  2. A full size maximum quality 8-bit JPEG file that can be sent via email and is 8.8Mb
  3. Smaller JPEGs are available on request.

What are TIFF and JPEG and which should I use?

JPEG files (named after the Joint Photographic Experts Group who created the standard) are relatively small files which have had their data compressed using various methods so as to create a smaller file size. The compression method is lossy, meaning that some original image information is lost and cannot be restored. JPEGs are also less able to be manipulated at a later date due to the restricted amount of data available. It is an excellent format for email and proofs but it is not overly suitable for ongoing work.

TIFF files (Tagged Image File Format) are a lossless file format where no original image information is lost. TIFFs are considerably larger than JPEG files and therefore are not suitable for email. This is the file format for ongoing work that requires manipulation.
