Of course! I'm open to capturing your portraits in a place of your choice.

Can I print my digital files?

Yes you can! Please bear in mind though, most consumer print labs and express kiosks severely lack in quality, but also, they typically do not prioritise customer privacy. I'm more than happy to help you with any of your printing needs to ensure your images are printed with the utmost quality, so the prints don't end up in the wrong hands.

Do you offer makeup and hairstyling?

Yes I do! I work with a team of pro makeup artists who know exactly how to make you look camera-ready. It takes the stress and worry out of having to do it yourself, giving you more time to enjoy the photoshoot experience. It's highly recommended! Makeup - £ 75 Basic hairstyling and tweaks for the camera is included free of charge.

Do you photograph men?

Yes I do! I photograph fathers, sons, partners, male friends, actors, models and entrepreneurs. Everyone deserves great portraits of themselves.

I'll send you my Prep Guide once you've booked your photoshoot session.

How long does a typical photo session last?

The duration of a photo session varies depending on the type and scope of the project. Portrait sessions typically range from 1 to 2 hours shoot time. I strive to provide ample time to capture everything and ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the session.

How long does it take to receive the final edited photos?

What happens if the weather is unfavorable on the day of an outdoor shoot?

If the weather doesn't cooperate on the day of an outdoor photoshoot, we can discuss alternatives such as rescheduling the session or using my studio. I want to ensure the best possible outcome for your photos, so I'm happy to be flexible in adapting to any unforeseen circumstances.

What printed products do you offer?

I offer a beautiful selection of contemporary Wall Art, a Luxury Album, a Fine Art Folio Box and a Tri-Fold Folio. Wall Art starts from £395 and a Luxury Album starts from £650. What you purchase is entirely up to you. I'll explain everything at your consultation and afterwards I'll send you my Viewing and Ordering Guide.

What retouching do you do?

We can discuss further at your consultation. I usually assess all the tiny details and if it is distracting, it gets removed. Temporary blemishes, stray eyebrows, cat hairs, etc, are all dealt with so that the focus remains on your expression. All images are optimised for brightness, colour and contrast.

What shall I bring?

We'll have a more in depth discussion about what to bring at your consultation, but here is a general guideline: A good rule of thumb is to bring what you feel comfortable in (not your PJs though). You can look as casual or a glamorous as you like. 3-5 outfit changes. For ladies, it's also a good idea to bring along black, white or neutral underwear; a strapless bra if possible to avoid marks. Bring your favourite outfits or borrow from friends and family. I've created useful styling and prep guides to help you and have a few accessories and pieces I can pull from my styling wardrobe too. The right attitude works wonders. The single most important thing to bring to the photoshoot session, is the willingness to be open minded and experiment. Whatever insecurities you have, just leave them at the door. I'm seeing you with fresh eyes and know how to bring out the best in you. Of course, if you have any particular sensitivities we'll certainly discuss those (i.e. if you are self-conscious about a particular facial feature). I'll do my best to take those considerations into account. It’s important to trust me if I ask you to try something. Just go with it. The very worst that can happen is that a picture gets deleted!

What types of photography services do you offer?
