Commissioning a Portrait
Are you looking for photographs for your wall, or for your family album? Would you like images of your kids, or your children now they've grown up? Are you looking for something a little different, like an online album to share with distant relatives?
Knowing what you are looking for and how you intend to display these images is part of the personalised service I offer.
What should you expect
I work with the expectation that the shoot could last for a few hours. When I take photos, the images are shown on my laptop screen to offer immediate feedback to you.
What do you photograph?
What is in the portrait is really up to you. There are no markups for small groups or pets. I do photograph children, provided a parent or guardian is always there to help. I retouch all images to meet your requirements.
Can you bring your studio to me?
I am located in West Linton, Peeblesshire and will drive to locations located throughout the Scottish Borders, Midlothian, East Lothian, Edinburgh and South Lanarkshire. My studio equipment is portable and should fit within a typical living room area. Alternately, if the weather co-operates, I can take your photographs outside. Travel expenses are additional beyond 25 miles. Please contact me for more details.
Since I offer a bespoke service, I work with your requirements to determine the best solution. To give you some idea of my services, my photography commission starts at £199. All commissions include a photo-shoot of at least 24 photos, image retouching and 4 high resolution digital copies with license to print them yourself.
Please contact me by phone, via email, or click on the "Enquiries" link in the menu. Once we have made contact, I would be happy to discuss your portrait session.
Important safety note: I typically use strobe lights for portraits. Please notify me if you have photo-sensitive epilepsy, so I can modify my lighting setup to accommodate you.
