Where do you shoot?
We will shoot outdoors, on location. My shoots take place in Central London and I have a number of spots that I use. I’m also happy to travel for shoots. Please get in touch for details.
What if the weather is bad?
This is the interesting part about outdoor photography! I’m able to shoot in most weather conditions by always using a sheltered location. Contrary to what a lot of people think, you don’t need bright sunshine to get great photos. Shaded areas and cloudy days actually work better as the soft, diffused light works just like a studio softbox. The only weather conditions that will really affect whether we’re able to shoot is high winds or freezing temperatures. I’ll always keep an eye on the forecast in the days leading up to your shoot and will contact you beforehand if I think it’s going to be best to reschedule.
How much is the deposit?
I normally ask for a £30 non-refundable deposit to confirm your booking. If for any reason you have to change the date of your shoot after paying your deposit, I’ll happily reschedule at no additional cost if you give me enough notice. The only situations when you’d lose your deposit are last-minute cancellations or if you don’t arrive within 15 minutes of the agreed session start time.
How do I receive my images?
After your shoot, I’ll send you a gallery of preview images for you to make your choices from. You can share this gallery with agents, friends, family etc. Your final images will be delivered via a download link which you can then save to your own hard drive.
Do you edit the images?
Yes. Your final images will be edited and retouched. I’m happy to freshen up dark eyes and remove skin blemishes, but I don’t overdo my editing. I like your final image to represent how you look on a really good day.
How long does it take to receive my photos?
You’ll receive your previews within 48 hours of the shoot and your final images within 10 working days of making your final choices. If you need an express service, please let me know at the time of booking. This may be subject to an additional charge.
Can I shave during the session?
Bear in mind that we’ll be working outdoors with no facilities for this. I have had clients shave in the past, but they’ve made their own arrangements to find somewhere nearby to do this.
