London PR Photography FAQs

What is a PR photography shoot?

As a UK & London PR photographer I cover pretty much anything that isn't a corporate 'event'. I've covered Richard Branson visiting his London HQ, the PepsiCo CEOs visiting UK suppliers, Tony Blair and the Emir of Qatar touring technology labs at the Institute of Global Health Innovation, Joe Biden meeting with students at Imperial College London, Virgin Radio launching live from a speeding Virgin train, kids building online worlds at coding camp... you name it, I can provide dynamic marketing and PR photographs for you to promote it.

How much is a PR photography shoot?

Pricing is typically based on day-rates for the shoot itself, plus a fee for editing and delivery, and finally a licensing fee. Let me know what you need and I can provide a detailed quote.

Will we be able to use images how we want? Who owns the copyright?

As standard I own the copyright and provide you with a license for whatever use you need. Standard PR photography use includes editorial use in press releases, brochures, and your digital media platforms (e.g. website & social media). Further commercial use can be included if needed (e.g. use in advertising or commercial products). You can also purchase the copyright but this can be prohibitively expensive and usually isn't necessary.

Is editing included in the PR photography fee?

All quotes include a basic round of editing to correct for exposure, clarity, and colour balance. If you require any additional editing this is charged at an hourly rate starting at £60/hr. I may outsource complex editing to specialists, charged at cost plus an administration fee.

Can we get the raw files to edit ourselves?

Typically I provide edited high resolution JPGs. I can provide the raw files if arranged in advance, for clients who legitimately need to edit in-house to add visual effects, or to match a campaign style.

Do you charge for travel?

For shoots in central and SW London if I can travel light on public transport (i.e. cameras, lenses, no lighting) travel is included. If I need to drive or take a taxi to carry equipment I charge related expenses such as parking, Congestion Charge, or taxi fees. For shoots outside London I charge a combined fee for travel time and expenses.

Do you do PR photography shoots outside London?

Absolutely, I’m not just a London PR photographer, I can go pretty much anywhere you need me. For travel I charge a fee combining travel time and expenses. If the shoot requires an overnight stay (e.g. 2+ hours outside London and starts very early or finishes very late) I charge a fee combining accommodation at cost and simple per diem expenses.

What's the best way to pay for a PR photography shoot?

All payments for photography are taken via bank transfer (BACS). Once we receive confirmation from our bank (usually the morning after payment is received) we'll send a receipt and confirm the booking.

Do you offer charity / not-for-profit discounts?

I offer a set number of charity discounts a year, and prioritise certain charities I have a personal connection with. It's best to let me know your budget when you get in touch, and I'll do my best to make it work for you.
