before the day…

All of my portrait shoots start at 2 hours in length, whether they are studio or location based. Date and times will need to be agreed, together with a location, then I’ll send over a contract that you can read and sign electronically. The non-refundable booking fee of £50 for location shoots, or £90 for studio shoots, should be paid no later than 7 days before the shoot to confirm the event. Full payment of the booking fee will confirm the date and time in my diary. Don’t forget to let me know if you have any ideas or specific shots that you want to include in the shoot.   If you chose one of my packages, the balance of the package price must be paid before any products are ordered.

I’ll send you some price lists before the shoot, so you can get an idea of the products that I offer and how much they cost. There’s absolutely no pressure to commit to buying anything at all, it’s purely to give you some ideas about the products you could have.

I’ll send you links and passwords to your own private galleries that all of your images will be placed in after the shoot, you can send those links and passwords out to your family and friends if you wish.

on the day…

On the day of the shoot, I’ll meet you at the agreed location and time.  We’ll work through the shoot, and I’ll be happy to show you shots from the back of the camera so I know you’re happy with the images we’re getting.

During the shoot, there will be an opportunity to look at some product samples that I’ll bring with me.  It will give you the chance to see something other than photographic prints and may give you an idea for some birthday or Christmas presents.

after the day…

I will back up your images in two locations, one on-site and one off-site in the cloud, as soon as I return to my office after your shoot, so you can rest assured that no images will be lost. After that job has been done I’ll start work to get your previews ready, and I’ll populate the preview gallery with those images so you and the family and friends that you’ve sent the link and password to can view the pictures.

The rest is up to you and your friends and family. You can browse your preview gallery and choose images for printing, and you can select some for your album or book if you want one. I’ll be on hand to give advice about the sizes and number of pages, I’ll take orders for you and arrange to have the items delivered straight to your door. I’m just a phone call or e-mail away if you need any help.
