Frequently Asked Questions


From time to time I get asked questions about my work and thought it would help if I listed the most common questions for you to view.


Am I limited to what you offer on your website?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

No, Not at all. I have simply listed the most common types of work I do on my site, but will consider anything upon request. Please complete my contact form if you want something different.


I like the look of your Portrait Photography. Is this done in a studio?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, I have all the professional equipment a studio requires. Lighting, Backgrounds, Reflectors and so on. In my home studio I create a relaxed environment where I will take your pictures.


Are you Insured?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, I wouldn’t leave the house without it. I have Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance. This is simply part of being a professional photographer.


Where are you based and do you travel?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I am based in the Staffordshire area, but am willing to travel to any destination. There may a slight charge for any mileage outside of Staffordshire.


How do i make payment to you?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I accept cash, cheque and PayPal as payment methods.


Portrait - Payment must be made prior to the shoot.

Weddings - A £50 deposit must be paid upon booking your event and then the full balance must be paid 4 weeks before the date of your wedding.

Additional Orders - Full payment must be made upon ordering what you require.


How long do I have to wait for my photos?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Once I have taken your photo’s I will apply some post processing techniques to give your photo’s that perfect finish. I say up to 2 weeks after the shoot but in most cases this will be much shorter.


If you are ordering larger items such as a Canvas or a Photo book then I advise between 2 - 4 weeks after I have received payment as this will go off to a professional printer.


How long will my portrait shoot last?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Normally this will take around 1 hour but my aim is to capture the perfect shots, so I may spend longer using various techniques.


Can I use props for my portrait?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, if you want a favourite Teddy, Football or even dress up in that favourite outfit then that’s fine. Bring it along and I will see what I can do.


What should I wear?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is completely up to you, but remember this could be something you have on your wall for years. I recommend against white and pale colours though. Mainly because this will blend with the background.


I would recommend brining a few pairs of clothes with you to change. This way I will get a range of photo’s and give you a wider choice when selecting your final prints.
