Frequently asked questions
Where do you work / what areas do you cover?
I travel a lot for work with most jobs being UK or London based. My studio is in Angel, Islington and I live in north London. This allows easy access to Hertfordshire & Suffolk too.
How soon can we have the images?
If you have a tight deadline, let me know and can often turnover shoots on the same day if necessary.
As a guideline weddings take 3 weeks for digital copies.
Portraits can take 24-72 hours. I try to get the photos to you as soon as possible, without sacrificing quality.
How much does a shoot cost?
Fees depend on time spent before, during and after the shoot and also on the intended usage. As a general guide day rates start from £599. Weekends are typically 10% more and Weddings are usually more as they involve more work before and after the shoot.
I also have an hourly rate.
I’m always happy to discuss client’s budgets and needs and you can contact me directly here.
What Payment methods do you accept?
I take cash, Paypal bank transfers. An invoice will be issued for each job.
Do you come to us or shall we come to you?
Both options are possible. I will often come to clients and can setup lights and a photographic backdrop almost anywhere. This saves you time. I have a studio next to Angel tube in Islington and I also use other studios.
Do you photograph weddings?
Yes. I’ve photographed many weddings over the years. While most of the couples come through word of mouth I do get frequent enquiries and am always happy to discuss wedding plans in person. You can view my wedding photography page here.
We need some shots in Black & White, is that possible?
Very much so. A lot of work is delivered in black and white. With digital cameras the shots are captured in colour and are later converted and delivered to you in B&W. It is always a good idea to let me know in advance about your preferences.
Last minute bookings – can you take on a shoot for tomorrow?
Having worked in this industry for many years I am accustomed to last minute bookings. This would of course depend on my schedule. I also work with other photographers so if I will suggest a colleague.
Do you provide hair and make up?
I work with some amazing hair and make up artists. This can be discussed prior to the shoot so I can book the artist most suited for the job.
How do we confirm a booking?
Bookings are usually confirmed by paying a deposit. I will send an invoice for a deposit with details of the shoot. This will usually be a sum between £50-£300.
