Photo shoot info
I am happy to consider all aspects of photo work - please contact me to discuss anything not covered here
I am able to undertake photographic commissions at a very affordable rate. I am happy to work with inexperienced or amateur models seeking to start or expand their portfolio or to gain experience of photo shoots. I am also happy to work for anyone wishing to update a portfolio or needing publicity shots.
I try to keep the sessions light-hearted and fun and am equally happy to provide images for anyone who just wants some for fun or to share on web sites etc. I am also happy if you want to share a shoot with a friend or relative and thereby split the charges between yourselves.
The studio I use is in Whitstable, Kent. Whitstable is on the north Kent coast and is easily accessed by road or train and I am happy to collect you from the station. For more details of the studio, its facilities and directions please go to the LINKS tab above.
Alternatively. I have portable flash stands and backdrops which I can bring to your home - thus saving studio hire fees.
If you would prefer a location shoot rather than the studio, then I am quite happy to travel to an East Kent location if you have somewhere in mind. I am based in Margate.
I tend to use Kearsney Abbey and Russell Gardens near Dover for location work as they provide a nice variety of settings - but do let me know if you have somewhere in mind.
My charges towards the studio costs are £50 per hour. I can also supply A4 prints on HP 280gsm gloss paper at £5.00 each and framed prints for £30 each if required. I do not usually charge for my time or for CDs - unless it is a commercial commission or I am involved in additional travel or expense.
For a model portfolio I would normally suggest a half day shoot (4 hours) for which the total charge would £200 (or £250 to include a make-over). If you choose a half day shoot I would also provide you with five A4 prints of your choice. A half day session would give you time for a make-over and approx. eight changes of outfit. You can of course do your own make-up or bring a friend to assist if you wish.
I would shoot some 200 images and provide you with the entire shoot on CD. If you decide you would like any photos to be printed you can email me with the details. However - if you just wanted to do an hour then that is fine with me but you would be resticted to less changes and images. I do not make any charge for CDs and the images on them are not edited or reduced in resolution - so you are free to use them yourself for any purpose.
For all model shoots, the style and level of photography is agreed in advance as it is of paramount importance for you to be happy and relaxed in order to achieve good results. I am also open to any ideas or suggestions you may have for particular images you may wish to create.
You are free to use the CD images and the prints for any purpose you wish - I do not invoke any copyright or insist on photographer accreditation. I will only use the images myself for self-promotion in my portfolio, my web site or my own feature on other web sites.
I have teamed up with a make up artist who is able to give you a photographic make-over for a very reasonable price. Please click on the BEAUTICIANS heading for further details.
I also work in partnership with another beautician who specialises in nails, spray tanning and waxing to enhance your look. Details are available via LINKS above.
So - if you are at all interested in a photo session - would like to know more - or have any questions - please do not hesitate to email me via the CONTACT ME link above.
