Frequently asked questions
So what happens now?
Book a shoot.
These are some questions we are asked quite often:
May I ask for a mix of portrait styles in my shoot?
Yes you can, if you want the start of the shoot to be a lifestyle and then head into a studio or venue I’ve made into a studio then that’s what we’ll do.
Do you do retouching?
Yes I do, but not a lot in terms of wrinkles etc. I do soften but not complete elimination, I do retouch and remove spots, lighten dark and reduce tired under eyes. I only retouch to the point where you’d like you on a great day.
Just minus the over tiredness and skin blemishes, we all get those!
Do you have a studio or shoot on location?
I do both, I’m equally happy shooting in a studio that I hire for the occasion .. its a great little venue with kitchen, bathroom and relaxing space.
I also have all the equipment to shoot on location with lights, happy to shoot at a venue you choose or out in the wilds of nature. Where ever you are happy, I’m happy too.
For event photography do you have a package offer?
No, events are always different so I have an hourly rate or a day rate, my hourly rate is £80 an hour and you’ll receive all the good images from that time. I don’t stint on license restriction, so once you’ve paid, the photos are yours but the copyright is mine. Meaning you can’t give the photos to another for their commercial use, the rate to hire me only allows you the license, not another.
So there’s no package offer so far but I do provide a fixed price cost if hired for a specific duration.
Do you do a bespoke photography service?
My gosh yes, YES you can! You’ve just said the magic words to me .. come, lets set a date and have a chat about what you are looking for. I’ll do my best to make it a reality.
I need new photos to marketing me and my business, can you help?
Definitely. I am not just a photographer, I’m also a branding, graphic and website designer too .. check out The Heart’s Design. So I understand the graphic design needs behind your images to market your business. I shoot specifically to your needs for websites, print, social media .. you name it, we’ll find a way to get you the best images to promote you and level up your reputation in the business.
