frequently asked questions
What gear do you use?
While eye-catching product and lifestyle photos are reliant on the photographers creative abilities over technical gear, I shoot with top-of-the-line Sony gear, including the Sony A7RIV, various lenses, and a Nikon back-up with various lenses. I specialize in natural light photography.
Is my copyright license exclusive?
No, as the photographer I retain the right to license, sell, or use any content created for marketing or portfolio purposes. If you wish to have an exclusive copyright license, an extra fee per photo/image will be charged. Consequently, Esther Ellyn will relinquish the right to license, sell or use the content created for you for portfolio and marketing purposes.
for branding: Can you provide a live model?
Yes! I work with a wide range of people for different projects and model add-ons are available. Rates depend on the models/subjects/agency I work with, and model fees go directly to them for booking.
How do I receIve my photos?
I deliver digital images through a personal online gallery sent directly to your email. You have two months to access your gallery and download and save your high resolution or web-size images.
do you do wedding photography?
I typically do not. Weddings are a highly specialized niche, and I reserve my time for serving people and businesses through portrait, editorial, and branding photography. Contact me for local recommendations and I would love to help refer you to someone who does!
do you travel?
Absolutely—I love to travel for photo sessions! I currently serve the Lexington Kentucky area, and offer discounted travel rates for Louisville Kentucky, Cincinnati Ohio, and Columbus Indiana. Contact me to inquire about special locations.
ARE PRINTING RIGHTS INCLUDED?
Yes. Every photo package includes printing rights that allow you to print your images through whatever channel you prefer. If you are looking for high quality prints you also have the option to order from a printing lab through me.
