Parish Photography FAQ Page
The Parish Photography Project
We are pleased to announce an offering of professional photography services to every parish and worshipping community in the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta. Over the course of the year, we will be conducting photo shoots across the diocese in order to expand our collective catalog of images as well as to provide professional, high-quality photographs for use on your websites, email newsletters, bulletins, printed brochures, and social media networks.
With over 56,000 members making up 112 worshipping communities in 75 counties in Middle and North Georgia, the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta covers a lot of ground. In order to offer photo shoots to everyone, we have created a calendar based on both geography and worship service times (as found on your websites or social media pages) and thus have pre-assigned dates and times for each parish.
Below you will find a link to confirm your photo shoot appointment. Once you have confirmed, we will be in touch with more details. Photo shoots will last 45-60 minutes and are offered at a subsidized rate of $50.
Don’t miss your appointment. Please confirm below.
We look forward to our visit with you and to capturing high-quality photos of your parish and community.
How was our scheduled time determined?
We have pre-assigned shoot days based on both geography and worship service times (as found on your website or social media pages), enabling us to offer these photography services at an extremely reduced rate to every parish in the diocese.
When do we need to confirm our scheduled photo shoot appointment?
Photo shoots must be confirmed no less than 14 days in advance. We advise confirming as soon as possible so we can begin coordinating details with you in advance.
What happens if we neglect to confirm our appointment in time?
If your parish does not confirm its designated time slot, you will need to reach out directly to firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule.
Please note that we will do our best to accommodate a schedule change, but we cannot guarantee availability and additional fees may be incurred.
Can we choose a different shoot date than the one provided?
We will do everything possible to accommodate you, however, we cannot guarantee availability and date changes may incur additional fees.
How will we receive our photos?
You will be provided with a link to download your high-resolution digital images from an online platform.
How can we use our photos?
You will have complete usage rights of the photos with no restrictions; you may copy, distribute, and modify the images for any purpose, as you see fit.
How many images can we expect?
At least 40 professionally edited, full-color photos.
How long will it take to receive our photos?
Images will be delivered digitally within 2-3 weeks after your photo shoot. If you need them sooner, rush processing is available for an additional fee of $250.
How much will we need to contribute to the photo shoot?
A required contribution of $50 – a fraction of the actual cost — payable to the Episcopal Diocese of Atlanta will help cover the photographer, travel expenses, scheduling, preparation of files, upload of images to the online platform, and more.
Can we have headshots taken of our clergy and lay staff?
Due to our limited time together, we will be focused on taking photos of individuals, groups, spaces, etc. We want to capture a day in the life at your parish! Therefore, formal headshots are not included. However, we are happy to coordinate formal headshots for an additional cost. Please note that this may require scheduling changes. Contact email@example.com for more information.
