Do you have your own studio?
Unfortunately no, although I do have experience working in studios, I am unable to offer a studio based shoot. Typically, my shoots are done on location, outside or at the clients home.
Can you do any day of the week?
This isn’t my full-time occupation and currently I am only able to offer my services part-time. Typically Saturdays, Sundays and bank holidays I’m free to shoot throughout the day. For any mid-week shoots I would ask for at least 2 weeks notice, as this will always subject to availability.
Why do your prices vary?
Simply put, different types of services require a different volume of photos or in other instances require a certain standard work. This is why I will charge more for photos that require special care and attention as they will take longer to do. I currently use a 2-3 stage process in editing my photos to achieve my distinct look. This may obviously vary depending on your own specifications if you have any.
Do you charge extra for travel?
Yes, I always ask that my transport costs are covered. As I can’t always rely on my trusty bicycle, I do have to rely on trains and coaches for further afield. My current rates are:
- NO CHARGE for York residents (based within the A64 / A1237 ring road)
- £15 for half an hours travel from York.
- £20 for 1 hours travel from York.
- £35 for 2 hours travel from York
- Discussion required for anything beyond this.
Travel rates will always be specified when discussing the shoot prior to booking.
Do we have to buy our own prints?
I am currently unable to offer traditional ‘physical’ prints, which is why I offer all images taken in high res JPEG files on a photo CD. If you wish to make your own prints, the files offered would be more than suitable for prints larger than A4 (depending on which printing method you use).
Do you offer a framing service?
No, like with prints, I am unable to offer this.
When can we expect the images?
My turn around time is usually between 2-5 working days depending on my workload. I will always let you know when your photos are ready and will offer a preview service so you can inspect and suggest changes if you so wish. I will always select a range of images based on what I know works best for print, and what requirements you have put forward.
