What type of photography do you do?
Maternity, newborn, engagements, weddings, families, events, headshots… the list goes on. Take a look through my portfolio and see what I’ve done so far.
I'm always up for a new challenge. The most bizarre assignment so far has been photographing heavy machinery and generators!
How much do you charge?
My general fee is £100 for an hour or £150 with all images included. It seems like a lot, doesn’t it? Please read this blog post for a longer explanation.
For weddings the pricing structure is different, a list of standard packages is in the 'Prices' section or please contact me for a personalised quote.
Do you have a studio?
I don’t have a studio as I prefer to work on location, either somewhere outdoors like Coombe Hill or in a client’s home. I have portable studio equipment which gives more options at events with low light.
How many photos will I get? Why can’t I see all of the photos taken?
In a typical hour-long session you can expect between 20 and 30 finished photos. Although I may take many more photos, I will only deliver those which I think are the best. This is especially true for larger groups where there is often someone blinking and some Photoshop trickery might be needed!
How can I have my photos delivered to me?
There are several options available for purchasing images after your session, these include differently-sized prints and canvasses along with digital copies delivered by Dropbox. Branded USBs are available exclusively for my wedding clients.
Do you edit the photos?
I edit minimally, this means that I will adjust basic things but I won’t change the way someone looks. Take a read of my blog post about this topic for more information.
What should I wear for a session?
This depends on a lot of different factors, this blog post discusses this question in more detail.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
Yes, gift vouchers are available and can be personalised as requested.
The hourly rates are the same as above.
Do you ever work for free?
Very rarely. I believe my time is valuable and I don’t just give it away. However, I do sometimes support charities and local schools with my time or I donate a gift voucher for an auction or raffle. You can always ask!
