Where on earth are you?

I am based in Yorkshire between Harrogate and York in a town called Boston Spa.

Do you travel?

I am happy to travel for photo-shoots. Travel expenses are on top of the photo-shoot fee unless I happen to be in your area at the time. However, I don't typically charge for nominal distances.
I will always agree with you upfront any travel costs involved.

Where will the shoot take place?

This depends on the look that you choose for your images. It can be your home or garden, a local park, your office or business location for an environmental portrait or my local village hall or your local village hall for a studio shoot for example. The cost to hire a room is on top of the photo-shoot fee but by way of example, half a day at my local village hall costs only £15.

How much do people invest?

My clients invest between £200 and £1,000 on their bespoke photography and products.

Do you do photography gift vouchers?

Yes, I do. They make lovely gifts for people. You can choose between a photoshoot voucher and a mentoring voucher, or I am happy to create a bespoke voucher for you. Please contact me for details.

Do we meet before the photo-shoot?

Yes. It is important that we meet well in advance of the photo-shoot to discuss what you want to get out of the shoot. I like to get to know my clients and to talk through the process in detail so that the end result meets your expectations . The consultation can be at your house, or in a cafe or at your business.

What do we wear?

In our consultation, we will discuss clothing choices, accessories, props and ideas about studio or location backgrounds to ensure that we achieve a bespoke vision for you. I am happy to make suggestions as to what works well for the mood or look that you desire.

What products can I choose from to best display my portraits?

During the post-shoot viewing, I will guide you through your options which will include framed individual fine art prints, framed montage prints, photo books and digital online images.

What if I am ill?

If you or a member of your group is ill I will happily reschedule. I want you to look and feel your best on the day! Likewise, if I am ill we will reschedule.

What sort of photography mentoring sessions do you do?

I offer an Absolute Beginner photography session where you learn how to use your camera fresh out of the box, and the basics of taking great photographs, in a fun and practical way. This costs £75 for 3 hours. The next level of mentoring is Improving Your Photography - switching over to manual, learning new techniques and how to get the most from your camera. This costs £150 for 6 hours. I will happily create a bespoke photography mentoring session for you, focusing on the technical or compositional skills necessary to take your images to the next level.

Do you sell prints of your own personal photographic projects?

Yes. All of my own work is available for sale at a variety of print sizes and prices. Please contact me if you wish to purchase a print for yourself or as a gift.
