Q: How to book?
email me: firstname.lastname@example.org
text/call me: 07478 506678.
If i don’t answer straight away, please leave me a message and I will return your call as soon as I’m free. As you will appreciate, I have a strict no phone policy when I’m in session with a client.
Q: What type of photography do you offer?
A: Whatever you need photographing, I can take care of it for you. My only exception, is underwater photography, i don’t do that, nor do i have any desire to. Anything else, Portraits, Pets, Parties, Promotions, Products, Events, Engagements, Weddings, Aerial Photography, Landscapes, you name it, I'll happily come and photograph it for you.
All my sessions are done either on location on in the studio, whichever suits your needs more. You are free of course to choose a location of your choice. There may be times when I offer advice about certain locations, but this will be to ensure that we get the best results for your images.
Q: How long will my session take?
A: There is no set time for your session, but on average you should allow between 1 and 2 hours. Outfit changes, snack breaks, children letting off steam breaks are all accommodated without issue.
My whole approach to a photographic session is your enjoyment. I want you to feel at ease in front of my camera, because this ensures we get the best results.
Q: When can i get to see my photos?
A: I always try my best to get you at least something to look at within 24 hours. Normally this happens on the same day as your session as I really enjoy the first reveal to you.
Processing takes time. Because I shoot in RAW, there are certain things which need to be done to make your images look their absolute best. You can rest assured though, that I enjoy processing just as much as taking photos, so there is never a significant delay, and you images are top of my priority list.
Q: I’m not photogenic, I look awful in photos.
A: Virtually everyone who has stepped in front of my camera has said this at some point or other. Relax, I've got this covered. All you need to do is be yourself. As we work together, we will talk, laugh, and move around from time to time.
The key to great natural looking photos is great lighting. Whether that is provided by the sun, or by my equipment, light and shadow is what makes the magic happen. Best of all, lighting control is for me to worry about, so you don’t have to. All you need to do is be yourself, enjoy the session, and the images will come naturally.
Q: What equipment do you use?
A: I use professional standard Nikon DSLR Full Frame cameras and lenses. I have lenses for all occasions, Primes, Portraits, Zooms, every combination i could possibly need to get the best for your images. I use Elinchrom studio lighting and many modifiers, and I have several portable off camera flash units for outdoor work or for tight spaces.
More importantly, I have backup equipment and redundancy systems in place so there is never an issue during a session. Natural lighting is best, and I will always strive to get the best from it, sometimes though, it needs a little boost. Basically, I have it all covered, so you have nothing to worry about.
Q: What should I wear?
A: Wear something in which you are comfortable and can feel relaxed in.
If we are outdoors, bring some warm clothing, especially during the autumn and winter months. Wear something that shows your own personality and style. If we are shooting outdoors, then please wear something appropriate for the time of year. Don't go mad with the 80's neons, fake tan, or makeup, there's no need, the camera will accentuate and exaggerate extremes in colour. If we are indoors, solid colours work best, and don't age quickly, creating timeless natural looking photos. For group shots, make sure you are all wearing different shades generally, and accessorize where desired. Feel free to contact me if you have any concerns
Q: Do you edit my images.
A: Yes. BUT, this only goes as far making your photos look amazing. I am trained in the use of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop and use these programs on a daily basis. I won't however, modify your appearance, but i may include a monochrome conversion. Your final images will be supplied in high resolution either printed or electronically on the medium we have agreed in advance.
If you have any thoughts, questions, or concerns, please drop me a line and I will put your mind at ease.
