Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some frequently asked questions. Feel free to reach out and ask more!
How much does it cost?
- It depends on the project and what you're looking to create. Every project is different! I often operate on half or full day rates for small projects, and for larger objectives we do a back and forth to establish logistics and distribution after which a proposal and quote are provided. Feel free to give me a call or send an email with the scope of your idea and we'll work together to fit it into your budget.
Do you work remotely?
- This is the stuff I enjoy most. If you have an idea and it sounds a little nutty, I'm probably more likely to be up for it than most...
Where are you based?
- Currently I'm based on Salt Spring Island (my partner is starting a badass chocolate factory!), but I travel frequently to Victoria, Vancouver and further afield for work. If you'd like to visit the island, I'd love to show you around.
Have you taken photos in other countries?
- I've been lucky to travel and have worked on personal and commercial projects in Canada, the United States, Japan, New Zealand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and extensively up and down the coast of British Columbia.
How can I contact you?
- You can contact me via email; email@example.com, through the contact page (on the left of this page), by phone; (250) 222-1005, on Instagram using the handle @keegsphotos or send mail to: 286 Channel Ridge Drive, Salt Spring Island, BC, V8K 1G9.
How do I connect with you on social media?
- Instagram: @keegsphotos
- Facebook: Keegan Pearson Photography
Otherwise I'm a dinosaur, I dig phone calls and letters.
What type of equipment do you use?
- When I first started I used whatever I could get my hands on; Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Nikon. I've been Canon ever since. My favourite set up is a travelled Canon 5D Mark 3 with a Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 which blows everything out of the water.
Did you study photography?
- I attended Quest University Canada and while there attempted to answer the question: "How can images change the world?" (at Quest you ask a question instead of declaring a major). During this process I dove into the implications and ramifications of political and conservation imagery. For the final 'Keystone' project I worked with a custom photo projector that allowed me to project images the size of buildings, then made a photo series in and around Vancouver that commented on social media use and the juxtaposition between what we portray online and our daily realities.
