Pricing and services
At the moment due to this current economic climate I am individually tailoring prices for every customer, thereby ensuring that I can give you the best price possible. Please contact me with details and I'll then be able to issue you a quote.
Very simple! The first thing to do is contact me and see if I am available and if I cover your location.
I can shoot in many different locations dependant upon your requirements. I have the use of a number of Hertfordshire and London studios, or I also can recommend or scout specific locations should you have specialist requirements for backdrops and props. I am able to setup in any location as I have an extensive portable studio lighting setup.
I can even setup in your own location, home, office or where ever else you like. Shooting outdoors is of course also an option, subject to the weather. As always I am very flexible and if required can advise on a location that would give the best results. As a Hertfordshire I know many local locations. If you are after locations I have a list of a number of handpicked ones in and around Hertfordshire, that I know will give us beautiful backdrops.
Of course. Dependant upon what the shoot is I may be able to give you a few different options and choices. i.e. a quicker and cheaper option or a higher quality, but lengthier option.
Usually is it best, better quality and cheaper to shoot everything right in the first place, but with some specific setups it may be easier and cheaper to create elements of the photographs afterwards in photoshop.
As well as timings for the shoot I'll be able to advise you of projected timescales for any required editing and a total turn around time.
