Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you and what is your background?
I am a portrait and landscape photographer who recently graduated with a B.A. in Sociology from UC Berkeley. I have done creative portraiture as well as family and graduation photos for the past couple of years. I am available for all types of photoshoots.
How long have you been doing portrait photography?
Roughly four years!
What equippment do you use?
I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark II and will be switching between a Canon 50mm f/1.8 and Tokina 28-70mm f/2.8 throughout the shoot.
How do you post-process?
I edit all of the photos that will be sent to you using Lightroom. I do not use photoshop.
What are your rates?
I charge $75/hr if the number of people is less than five. For five people and above, I charge $100/hr.
How many photos are returned?
I typically send 50+ photos for a 1-1.5 hour shoot. I delete all duplicates and photos that didnt turn out, but try to keep as many photos that I think turned out as possible.
What is the recommended time for a shoot?
The lighting is best if the photos are taken about two hours before sunset so that we have at least 1.5hrs of good light.
Where else can I see your work?
My Instagram (@ASHLTORRES) is typically much more up-to-date than the portfolio on here.
