No travel fees are charged for photoshoots in Amsterdam, including the city’s surrounding parks.

For photoshoots outside of Amsterdam, but within the Randstad, a fixed amount of €50 will be charged on top of the photoshoot price.

A tailored travel allowance is agreed upon for photoshoots outside of the Randstad.

You can specify your preferred photoshoot location during checkout.

PHOTOSHOOT

What is your photography style?
I specialize in quality cinematic portraiture. Portraiture is the art of creating natural portraits that authentically convey one’s true essence and emotions. Cinematic is a photography style that involves creative compositing and artistic equipment to capture intimate moments atmospherically.
Will I receive tips and guidance?
Absolutely! You will experience an at ease approach and receive tips and guidance, allowing you to comfortably enjoy your shoot without worrying about posing for the camera.
Will you map out a picturesque route?
Definitely! Based on the ideas you share in your booking, I will carefully map out a picturesque photo route.
How about make-up, hairdo, and outfits?
Whether you choose to have your make-up and hairdo done is entirely up to preference.

To help you get the most out of your authentic photoshoot, I will share outfit suggestions best fitting our envisioned composition.

What if I am late?
Since there are multiple photoshoots scheduled during the day, you are requested to be on time.

If you are late for up to 30 minutes, we will continue with the photoshoot for the remaining time.

If you are late for more than 30 minutes, the photoshoot will be canceled, and your refund will be reduced with the deposit amount of €50.

Can I extend my photoshoot?
Subject to my availability, it is possible to extend your photoshoot. Since there are multiple photoshoots scheduled during the day, I recommend that you align on any extensions in advance.

Can I choose which photos you will edit?
My approach is a bit different.

I don't rush to click lots of the typical snaps only to pick out a few afterward. Instead, we will compose each photo together. The number of photos we will jointly craft depends on the type of photoshoot you have booked.

Next, I will delete all test shots, duplicates, and photos that I deem of inferior quality. I will naturally edit the remaining photos in accordance with the featured portfolio and upload them to your gallery in the best digital format.

I will never withhold any photos or request additional payments, these are your memories.

Do you give unedited photos?
No. Unedited photos don't reflect the featured portfolio and are never delivered.
When and how will I receive the photos?
The photos are ready to download for free from your gallery within 10 working days. Do you need the photos sooner? Check the option 'Express Processing' during checkout, and your photos will be downloadable within 5 working days. The 'Express Processing' costs are €50 on top of the photoshoot price.*

The waiting time for all types of photoshoots can be slightly longer in the high season.

Will the photos be watermarked?
To preserve the cinematic quality of the photos, no watermarks are applied. Please, credit Rudenko Photography as the photographer while posting the photos.
Can I have the photos professionaly printed?
