Why is your shop called Frankly James? Sounds a bit random for a camera store.

Well, it’s a bit of a long story which you can read here. Long story short, Frankly James is our dog and we thought “hey, free mascot”!

Can I see your products in person before I buy?

We don’t have any physical stores yet, but you’re welcome to pop in to see products if you live locally. We’re based on the northside of Brisbane. You might even be lucky enough to meet the original Frankly James, our hyperactive doggy mascot! Please contact us first so we can make the arrangements.

We’ll also be heading to a few of the local Brisbane markets…you can like us on Facebook to stay in the loop on where we’ll be heading.

Are the colours on your website accurate?

We try to make sure our images give you the best representation of the actual product. The only thing is we can’t control everyone’s monitor, colour calibration and screen resolution, therefore colours may vary when you receive your products.

If it doesn’t meet your expectations, we’re happy to refund or exchange as long as the item is unused and unopened. You can read more about our returns policy here.

Who takes the photos in your photo shoot packages?

Alyce is our chief photographer and you can read more about her here. Depending on the type of session, she may also bring along an assistant but she’ll discuss this with you before your photo shoot.

You sell a lot of toy cameras in your store…I hope you don’t use those for your photo shoots! What type of gear do you have?

We love our gadgets, but for our photo shoots we always stick with our professional gear. Alyce uses a Canon 5D Mark II with a various Canon lenses and flash units. All of our post-editing is done using Adobe CC Photoshop and Lightroom.

We don’t mind the odd happy snap on our mobile phone or polaroid, but that’s just for some extra fun to share on our social networks.

Are your photo shoot packages flexible?

Yep! We provide some options on our website to give you a starting point but everything can be customised to suit your needs and budget.

First we like to meet with you so we can chat about exactly what you’re after (or if you’ve got no idea, we can share some ideas with you!). Then, we can provide you with a quote clearly outlining all the inclusions because we hate surprises, hidden costs or sneaky upsells.

How long will it take you to scan my things?

This depends on the total number of photos, negatives or slides to be scanned and our current workload for scans. We’ll respond to you with an estimated timeline when you email us with a job request.

As a rough guide, we generally aim to turnaround a job of 50-100 scans in 7-10 days but please check with us first if you need it in a hurry.

How long will it take you to complete my photo restoration?

This all depends on the work required to fix the photo – some photos are surprisingly quick fixes, while others can take a lot of time. All photo restorations need to be submitted to us for a quote and we’ll respond to you with an estimated timeline when we come back to you with costs.
