The packages I have created for this grant to support Maribyrnong businesses will ‍ allow flexibility to ensure the business owners get the most from the package. The ‍ photoshoot will be location-based in the restaurant / Cafe, this helps capture the ambience ‍ and style to support branding and promotion. I am flexible with days and times to fit within ‍ the business needs and not disrupt service.

Once ‍ each photoshoot is complete images will receive a basic retouch. ‍

Businesses will receive images in high and low resolution (Print and web use quality) via a digital download service ‍within 5 working days to start using the images to promote their business. ‍
