Session Guidelines and Rates

PREPARATION

What to wear; what's the industry norm? And how would you like to be perceived; formal, informal, creative? Bring clothes you believe are appropriate, suitable and not too far from an industry standard. It is advisable to bring with you 3-4 tops of different colours and necklines i.e. shirt, jacket roll neck, v neck, t-shirt etc. Avoid logos. Hair; avoid a haircut the day before or on the day. If you are considering a haircut, have one a week before; this gives you time to learn how to style it. Or should you not like the haircut, to reschedule the shoot. Make up and skin; start with a natural look with little to no make up; you can always add more during the shoot if required. If you have oily skin, please book a morning (or early afternoon) session and consider a cleanser or treatment before the shoot.


TIME

Each session lasts up to 2 hours. The first 20- 30mins per session will be spent talking to get on the same wavelength so that the photography has a definite and confirmed direction. As the shoot progresses you will have the opportunity to view the images on the back of the camera so you can see the images straight away and make immediate changes if necessary. After the shoot I email a link to a password protected album with the best images from the shoot; normally approximately 20 images. You choose your favourites (up to five), which will then be edited and fine tuned before the high res sent to you. Please be aware due to difference in editing, colour and black and white images each count as an image. Editing can take 2/3 working days.


RATE

The standard rate for a session is £200. A deposit, or booking fee, of £30 required to confirm date and time of the session. This is non refundable and will be deducted from the final fee. Should this not be paid at a minimum of 3 working days before the session I will consider the session cancelled. This time allows me the opportunity to try and find another client. Retouching for each additional image is £20.
