What style of photography do you take?
As you’ll see from the online portfolio, Davina prefers using the natural light when shooting interiors which means not turning lights on, unless there is a really beautiful lamp and the light it casts creates an amazing ambience. Unlike real estate photographs which are highly edited and etched, the images Davina captures is much more ambient and natural. However, if a client requires “real estate” style imagery this can be arranged, however there will be an additional fee for editing. Portraits taken in a lifestyle format, are treated the same. Either by using the natural light if shooting outside, or filtered light when taken inside. Portraits taken in a studio will incur an additional fee for hire of the facility.

Do you photograph for builders, commercial spaces and interior designers?
Absolutely - Davina has captured homes either being fully built or recently renovated and has also photographed retail stores, startups, beauty salons, bookstores and hotels.
What is lifestyle photography?
Lifestyle photography is a more relaxed way of shooting a space and often includes ‘talent’ (i.e. a person or a small group) to give the scene some action and showing people in a real life situation. This can be done in the Full day package, however it is up to the client to source the ‘talent’. Many clients will use themselves or friends as often the shots don’t always show their faces, just hands or shots taken from a distance.
