Pricing & FAQs

Frequently asked questions

If your question isn't answered here just ask and I'll be happy to help.

When will we receive all the edited photos?

It depends on the shoot and what you need. As standard we aim to deliver to our corporate & PR clients within 2-3 working days, and our private event clients within 3-5 working days. That said, if we have no shoots or queued edits scheduled on the working day after your shoot we may well be able to deliver in full within 24 hours at no extra cost.

If you absolutely require guaranteed same-day or next-day delivery of the full shoot we offer this as a premium service starting at £200 depending on the nature of the shoot. This allows us to reserve the editing time at the expense of other shoots or edits, but may not always be available depending on our schedule.

We find most clients would be happy with just a few key images delivered faster. For example: conference keynote images for same-day LinkedIn posts; or award winner images delivered the next day. We can usually provide a selection like this at no extra cost - please let us know before the event so we can take it into account when shooting.

How many photos do we get?

It varies for each commission. For most private and corporate events there's usually around 60-80 photos per hour of shooting, depending on guest numbers, venue size, schedule, etc. For PR commissions we'll provide more than enough photos to meet the brief.

Can we get the raw files to edit ourselves?

Typically our clients receive edited high resolution JPGs. If commercial clients legitimately require access to the original raw files so they can edit in-house to match a campaign style we can arrange that for an extra fee.

How can we use the images?

Let us know what usage you need and we'll include it in our quote. Our standard Sole User license always includes unlimited personal use, in-house use, and editorial PR use. We can also easily extend licensing later, for example to include a new advertising campaign.

Some corporate & PR photography clients are also happy for us to also sub-license certain images through PA, Alamy etc, but we never sub-license images from in-house and private events like this (e.g. Christmas parties, birthdays, etc).

Please note we remain the copyright holder of our work as per UK copyright law. It is always considerably cheaper to simply license the use you need.

Do you have a team of photographers?

For 90% of bookings I'll be your photographer. If we need additional photographers or if I'm not available when you enquire then I have a range of Associates I can call on, all of whom are professional photographers in their own right.

Do you provide videography, on-site printing, or a photobooth?

I specialise in photography so I don't provide these services myself. If you're one of my existing clients I can introduce you to some excellent videographers and photo booth companies that I've worked alongside.

How do we book and pay?

For new clients I'll send a booking form that includes a booking agreement page we'll both sign. New clients booking more than 8 weeks in advance may also need to pay a reservation fee upfront, deducted from the balance. For repeat clients the booking process is more streamlined. I take payment by bank transfer (BACS) as standard and you'll receive a receipt by email.

Is editing included?

All quotes include a basic round of editing to match my style. Any additional editing requested is charged at hourly from £75/hr. I may outsource specialist retouching, charged at cost plus an admin fee.

Is travel included?

It depends on the shoot and I'll specify in your quote. Where travel is extra it's typically £20 plus VAT on public transport before 10pm. If I need to drive or take a taxi (e.g. to carry equipment) I charge a fee to cover fares, parking, Congestion Charge, etc. Outside of London the cost is based on time and mileage and we'll estimate before booking.

Do you offer discounts for charities and NFPs?

I offer a set number of discounts a year for certain specific charities; please ask about a charity discount and include your ballpark budget when you get in touch.

I don't offer specific NFP discounts, although if you let me know your budget upfront when you get in touch I'll see what I can do for you.

What if we need to cancel or postpone?

This is handled on a case-by-case basis. For event cancellations specifically a reservation fee of 40% may be payable upon cancellation (if not paid already), plus up to 100% of the balance may be due depending on the specifics, especially the notice given.

Do you photograph weddings?

Yes, I shoot weddings and elopements all over the UK and even abroad, and I make time for 20 full day weddings a year. Check out my wedding photography website for galleries and lots more info about how it all works.
