  5. Agree to have a portfolio of their work, assessed by a panel of experienced AIPP image assessors.
  6. Achieve the required portfolio assessment standard.
  7. Agree to continue their professional development through the AIPP CPD program, maintaining up to date skills and business practices each year.

The AIPP continually monitors its ACCC certified accreditation requirements to ensure that the standard for accredited membership is appropriate for the profession of photography in 2017 and beyond.

How long after the shoot can I receive my visual assets?2019-01-05T03:47:04+10:00

Again, it depends on the size of your project, however as a general indication average projects are delivered within two weeks of conducting the shoot. Often the period of the shoot will extend over several weeks depending on environmental and human factors, so our promise of two week turnaround would naturally apply from the time the shutter is released.

Do you do provide a digital enhancement or photo retouching service?2019-01-05T03:46:43+10:00

Since only a small component of our business employs film photography, the vast majority of our images are digitally enhanced prior to delivery. We believe that digital technology has gifted photography with additional flexibility and opportunities for creative enhancements post camera. However, or core belief of capturing a subject appropriately ‘off the lense’ remains. This allows us to produce outstanding images with high efficiency while retaining the option of post camera manipulations as a creative tool.

How do you charge?2019-01-05T03:46:19+10:00
