This will all be discussed before the shoot. Usually you will simply need a carefully packed selection of clothing. Whether planning a costume change or not it’s always wise to bring a number of options. And a clean pair of socks!
Feel free to bring a sandwich if you think you’ll get hungry.
We have a small selection of props, from instruments to arms, hats to tools, although the majority of props seen in our images may not be ours. It’s always best to source your own props if possible. We can help where we can.
We cannot unfortunately extend a session if a client is late, we will have to squeeze in what we can. Please do all you can to arrive in good time as this may negatively effect the shoot, which is bad for both of us.
Cancellations must be received a minimum of 72 hours before the shoot, or the deposit may be forfeit. If we can fill your spot then your deposit may be returned, but this is very unlikely.
Only the client will be allowed into studio space. Unexpected individuals and any pets will be shooed away. Even Steve. We will of course make exceptions for guardians, although this must be agreed beforehand.
There’s a local cafe if this is genuinely a problem.
We cannot allow animals into the studio. We do however have a separate location where this might work, or a garden shoot may be in order. It should be noted, photographing animals can be a tricky, time consuming process and quality cannot be guaranteed.
Unfortunately not. Our main demographic has little need for prints. We can supply print friendly files on request though. Ultimate print quality will be down to your chosen printer. We recommend using a printer that will review your images for you, not an automated service that just churns them out.
Retouching is the third part of the process, after preparation and the actual shoot. It’s where we fix that flyaway hair, remove the cold sore, correct the colours, shape the exposure and deal with any distracting elements that couldn’t be dealt with during the shoot.
All will be emailed. Your Contact Sheet will be emailed to you for you to make your selection. Your final images will be sent to you via WeTransfer. This will be an email with a link to download your images.
Of course. We can establish exactly what you need and why before the shoot. It’s part of the process. On the flip-side, if you are using the images for online promotion only, you may choose to leave composition entirely down to us.
Depending on the package and the client, we may use one or more of your images to promote our business. This could include social media and the website portfolio. All this will be explained clearly in our TOS before the shoot.
