Private photographers and spectacular photographs should be accessible to everyone, not a luxury. Perfocal makes this a reality.
Hire an awesome photographer in 2 minutes
Our platform has made hiring pro photographers easy as 1-2-3. Our large network of expert photographers and smart matching algorithm, ensures there's always someone awesome and available. Here's the information we need from you:
- - The type of shoot you're looking for
- - When and where the shoot will be
- - Your name, email and mobile number
Simple and fixed pricing
Simply pick one of our fixed-priced packages that suits your needs, with no further surprises. And, since we are taking the customer acquiring and photo editing processes away from the photographer, we're able to offer the service at a much more affordable, almost unbeatable price, yet still produce amazing final results.
A credit or debit card is required to confirm your booking, bet we won't release the payment to your photographer until the job is perfectly done. Your payment will be securely processed by Stripe, one of the world’s most advanced payment gateways. Perfocal will never store your card information.
Get your photographer confirmed in a snap
Using our online booking system, we will match you with the best photographer available depending on expertise, availability and location. Once a booking is placed, you will receive an email confirming the booking and a further separate email notifying you've been successfully matched. You can always track and manage your booking from our website.
Though the photographer will shortly get in touch to discuss your shoot in detail, feel free to contact the photographer first. Their details will be provided in the confirmation email, as well as your booking page.
On the day of the shoot
Your photographer will appear and set up all equipment required for the shoot. The duration of the session will depend on the package booked. You may extend the session on your booking page, as long as your photographer has further availability.
Smile, enjoy the shoot and be the focal point.
After the shoot
Perfocal covers the editing process, which means your photos will always be appropriately enhanced and delivered timely. This also saves our photographers considerable time so they can enjoy doing what they love, taking photos.
You photos will be delivered to your gallery within 48 hours, where you can view and download them. Or within 24 hours if you have purchased our express add-on.
What we do with your photos
At Perfocal, we value the convenience of modern digital photography, but also love the personal touch and classic feeling of film photography. Editing to us is never just about adjusting exposure or sharpness, but more teasing out the unique intricacies in your photos.
