HERE ARE SOME REASONS why you might want to consider a classic photoshoot:

  • THE POINT of this kind of shoot is to create a beautiful set of images to share, print and show off with pride!

  • IT HAS MANY USES, from online profiles for LinkedIn, Facebook or dating sites to casting headshots, family prints, etc.

  • WHAT I PROVIDE is a comprehensive creative service, above and beyond any typical studio headshot package.

  • WHAT YOU GET, from all this, is a beautiful and timeless collection of stunning digital images and fine art prints!

BUDGET STUDIO DAYS

IF YOU REALLY NEED to have some top-quality portraits done but don’t require all of the benefits listed above, you best option may be to book a budget session instead, on one of my forthcoming budget studio days. This is when I hire a venue for a day and invite up to ten customers to come along, at particular times, for a 40-minute classic portrait photo shoot. Here’s what’s included:

  • STYLING SERVICES – An expert makeover, in preparation for your photo shoot

  • EXPERT COACHING – My usual approach to direction and posing

  • FULLY EDITED IMAGES – Your 5 favourite images, in full colour and monochrome

  • EXPERT RETOUCHING – Also included, on your 5 favourite images

I will always announce details of forthcoming studio day events, at least four weeks in advance, on my social media channels (see the footer, below) and in every issue of my newsletter, IN THE PICTURE.

MY CLASSIC PORTRAIT FEE ON BUDGET STUDIO DAYS IS JUST £200 *

* I don’t offer any discounts on this rate, but if you choose any optional extras, such as prints, the various discounts described in my FAQ can be used.

FAQs

CAN ALL THIS BE FULLY CUSTOMISED?

ABSOLUTELY! Every costed item in my classic portrait service has a transferable budget – so for example, if you don’t require any styling services you can add that budget to what you get somewhere else – such as, more fully-edited images or more (or larger!) prints. It’s entirely up to you; and we’ll talk through all the options at the outset, when planning your photoshoot.

CAN IT ALSO BE EXTENDED / UP-SCALED?

CERTAINLY. if you want to order lots of large-format prints or perhaps, extend the budget for travel, styling services etc. in order to make the most of your photoshoot – that can all be arranged, either at the outset, when you book your photoshoot, or at any appropriate time during the process and afterwards.

I'M TEMPTED... BUT IS THERE ANY WAY I GET A DISCOUNT?

YES, THERE ARE SEVERAL ways in which you can reduce the cost of your classic photo shoot!

  • BOOK EARLY – subject to availability, if you book your shoot within four weeks of the booking date, I'll take 10 per cent off. Obviously I can't do this if I'm fully booked, but it's worth asking!

  • REFER A FRIEND – if you recommend me to one or more people who book a shoot, I'll take 25 per cent off your next booking.

  • FOLLOW ME and SHARE! – From March 2019, I will publish a monthly promo code on either Facebook, twitter, Instagram or Pinterest, which gives followers a 10 per cent discount on orders and bookings placed within the following four weeks. I’ll also give a special 25 per cent discount award to my top social media sharers, every month.

  • GET IN THE PICTURE!My free monthly newsletter, which features exclusive special offers in every issue. Sign up for your free subscription, here!

Note that these discounts apply to all of my full photography service packages but not to budget studio sessions. However, you can still take advantages of discounts on optional extras, such as prints!

WHERE & WHEN? …AND CAN YOU RECOMMEND SUITABLE LOCATIONS?

  • ANYWHERE WITHIN 50 MILES or two hours’ travel-time of my studio (just outside Bath) is fine – and I may willing to travel further afield, by special arrangement.

  • TIMING IS FLEXIBLE, BUT ADVANCE BOOKING is recommended, as I’m often fully booked at least a few weeks ahead! If you have particular dates in mind, it’s a good idea to contact me in plenty of time… On the other hand, if you’re in a hurry, you might be in luck and get a “within 4 weeks” discount!

  • YES I CAN. I do a lot of my own location research, so I’m happy to advise on places and venues, depending on the theme of the shoot.
