The fee is relative to the intrinsic cost of time spent through out the session process, and then in post production. Most sessions are taken on location; simply, I come to you, and based upon the brief (the image required) work out a setting, interior or exterior, that will best establish what you are after in your finished image.
Inclusive in the set fee:
Pre production and shoot; to realise in concept, create and capture the special image that will present as a featured portrait. The aim is to choose the best 5 images, (from the session) that presents as the image you want and meets your expectations. This package includes 5 high-resolution, fully retouched and heightened digital images that you can reproduce in any way you wish. You can of course choose more later, in your viewing consultation.
Post production; specialised techniques are used to establish the images further in look, design and style, to create a unique Portrait, dependant on session. Please see: 'What to expect' & 'Life Style Portrait' in the "Info link' for a broader outline. This would also include Web ready Images for social media; Linkedin/Face book etc.
PRINT OPTIONS, are available if you require professional prints for display. I would advise for any print from 8x10" upwards that you get the printed image backed. The difference between a professional print studio and your high street outlet; Simply, cost and quality. The main reason is, a dedicated professional print studio provides a calibrated service which is superior. Alongside this, is a wider choice of High grade Fine art (Photo Rag and other) display print paper that allows the option to choose a type/grade of paper that accentuates the image. After investing so much in the image, it is the final touch.
Starts at 8x10-16x20" (these are separate options that can be built in) Individual Prints are charged for on a rising scale, based on size/design.
General guide, Starting at A4: £25.00
Largest format available 60x75"
I am happy to quote, give a Session/Print price on request, if not covered above, based upon your requirements and can advise what would best suit you as an affordable session shoot, that delivers that special image you are looking for.
Achieving a level of comfort is key to any successful photographic session; be it a Session Portrait, (any age range) or commercial commission, they all bring different unique challenges that require skills that go beyond technical knowledge. Part of the solution is communication, understanding what you have in mind, alongside helping you to develop and realise this creatively and photographically.
This is why any intial enquiry/prior discussion on your potential session is important. It allows you to make a considered decision through direct contact. It is not in place to be a hard sell or pitch on my part, rather more simply, a professional courtesy, to offer a package session that is affordable to you. With no further contact from me, after this initial chat. It is up to you to decide wether to engage my proffesional services or not.
