EDITING: Your images receive basic editing i.e. sharpening, light adjustment, contrast, artistic editing and conversions. Extensive editing i.e. removal of wrinkles/scars/making thinner etc. can be done but only to a certain extent. The Photographer will advise on the possibility of the CLIENT(S)’S requested ‘Photoshopping’. These requests must be discussed during the pre-event consultations not on the day of the event while we are in the middle of photographing. This extensive editing requires an additional fee of R1500.00 per hour. Note that the Photographer does not consent to other photographers retouching or editing photos taken by the Photographer in anyway. Consent is not given to the CLIENT(S) to retouch or edit the photos taken by the Photographer. This would reflect a style not indicative to the Photographer and possibly change the perceptive of the Photographer’s style of photography and editing. All editing is done at the discretion and artistic style of Darrell Fraser Photography.
